    The only thing worth complaining about is that all the SC Hybrids play similar.
    [ Locus + Living, Icicle > RS > Icicle, fill with hybrid's spells. ]
    Ok yes SCHarb is different and much more involved than that.
    But SCEle is no longer about Cycles,
    Dom/Chon is just the hybrids spells higher priority but still follow the SC rules,
    Lock/Necro/(prenerf)Arb all define the Locus, Living, Icicle, RS, Icicle, fill rotation.

    It's boring.

    Between Pyro and SCLock, SCDom, SCChon, SCEle, all being dull turrets. If it wasn't for Harbinger hybrids (Chon, SC) mage dps would be incredibly boring. #buffWarlock

    Yes, mages nowadays have a huge variety of dps specs, so what? Mages are not the only class in the game. There are some viable hybrids in other classes as well, don't get me wrong, but they feel too rare as compared to 61s.

    As for "normal" raid mode... I see no reason to dumb the content down. I like, for example, Ungolok fight - it's not really a dps check, people mostly fail to mechanics. If you want gear-wise easier raids just for the sake of raids, there are plenty of 60lvl T1-3 available. Some of them, though, will still wipe you if you're not precise with the mechanics. The only required implementation could be a new gear set that is a little bit better than NTE but worse than NT raid drops, and that would drop in the existing SL raids, so that 65lvl players doing them would feel that they progress somewhere. Here - a "normal" mode of raid with least effort. Hmm, though even less effort would be to make SL raids drop marks and fragments in small amounts...
    And if you want mechanics-free raids... well, I can only suggest zone bosses as the closest variant

    i wonder how you manage to remain extremely angry and obnoxious in every single thread. its gotta take a lot of hard work to keep up that facade of yours.

    Because they are lazy, hide it and claim, that it's so cool to express like that... same thing as the "required highest dps-burst-outheal-support-spec" ever... Shortly: Because all cool kids do it^^

    And all have been or can be used in raids on multiple different fights. in open world, in experts, in chronicles, PVP.

    If you're saying a build is niche for being usable in over 95% of the game's contents, then I'd love to see a build that works at 100% efficiency everywhere.

    The original post quoted said 3/4 of the souls/hybrids are worthless. There is about nothing boredom in there.

    The topic starter said that they're locked into Pyro for DPS. I just listed off 10 different DPS builds that are all applicable in raid fights, some falling behind and some being superior based on the exact fights.

    If you can objectively define boredom in a way that applies to a majority of the player base, then you'd have an argument to stand on.

    not long time ago our only dps options were warlock, warlock and warlock for quite some time. and now ppl complain that many hybrids are too similar and even want to nerf sc for that. i dont get it!
