I really should flag my caster for ADQ – so I can start the long frustrating journey towards a Torc. But I don’t wanna, you can’t make me (still one of my favorite lines evar next to all the Kobold chatter in challenges).
One reason is the boring mechanic of re-flagging by doing the one part in one place and then doing the main raid.
It bores my skull out – even if it’s not that hard on casual. But it’s the whole run there – doing it and then recall and find someone running the raid.
At least with shroud I don’t have to re-flag some Vale quest just to run the raid.
That’s also one of the reasons why I’m less than thrilled about running Master Artificier and LoB – first you run the wilderness, THEN you run a wilderness inside the ‘raid’ and before you run a shorter raid quest. It’s about impossible to get this done in less then an hour. Shroud generally forms quickly and take about 30 mins or so to run from start to end.
ToD is similar in that way; there’s a possibility to ‘teleport’ directly from the floating rock to the entrance of the raid. Which would be great if they added something similar in both LoB, MA and ADQ. That would remove some of the frustrating parts of those raids.
