Now let’s talk about some changes. So, one thing we looked at is Dungeon Finder. And it feels like, how we envisioned Classic, Dungeon Finder is not a good fit for our community.
Dungeon Finder is not a good fit for our community.
- Says who? The 1% of the community that actually have been able to take feedback polls regarding your game?
That was kind of the first step that way have eroded some of that social fabric. Now, as people have gone through the experience of going back to vanilla, rebuilding those groups, relying on each other, and not wanting a random participant just to show up and leave. Yeah, that make total sense.

- I would say a waste majority of the people doing dungeons are using LFG channels or Dungeon Finder tool in SoM & TBC.
…,and not wanting a random participant just to show up and leave.
- You will still be stuck with random people either way if you queue from Dungeon Finder or from LFG channel as a waste majority is doing today.
But, today, you can do that in Shadowlands. You can do that in Dragonflight. It’s a self-selected group of people who specifically want that different experience. Let’s make sure we continue to give them that.

- Removing a good solutions to make the game worse and then appealing to their retail expansion as a solution. Seem like Blizzard are trying to get players over from classic to retail now that this possible will be the last Classic expansion.
I see no benefit from removing the “Dungeon Finder” as people that have active friends and guild members will make groups and sign through the system together if they want to. People that are more casual and maybe doesn’t have that big of a selection of active friend or guild members will be forced to spam LFG channel and be teamed up with 5 random people either way.
The fact that Dungeon Finder tool actually have gear restriction, all though this can easily be manipulated, makes it easier to avoid under geared players. I guess we’ll still have normal & heroic daily quests a long side weekly raid quest, but further on in the expansion less people will be doing heroics as then emblem do not benefit their gear progression anymore. Instead of having one popular dungeon each day that people get locked to (Heroic) we will have a wider spread of dungeon & heroics being runned. Players that are needing specific loot from heroics will be teamed up with people that couldn’t care less what dungeon they are running, as long they get their daily reward.
For me the Dual Talent Specializaiton & Dungeon Finder have been the two single best implementation to the game. Removing the Dungeon Finder from Wotlk will make no impact on the “social players” and making it worse for the “single players”, its a terrible decision.
