It seems to me that with the difficulty of HK and the recent gear changes that there won't be enough incentive to do HK once the next tier of dungeons arrive. I say this because I'm pretty close to being geared out in HK (mage w/ all mark pieces 3 relic pieces and the rest HK purples) and my guild has been in HK for the last 7 months. We're currently 2nd on our server and we STILL have not downed all the content in HK 10/11. It seems to me that since a mage that is fresh out of GSB and ROS is pretty close in stats as I am that once the next tier is out, HK could be easily skipped. I mean why spend all that time in tier 2 when you can walk into tier 3 and not be that far behind. (I assume of course HK will be nerfed but still will probably be difficult). Not only that but I would have expected after this much time in HK that we would be running it for fun or to gear alts, at the very least getting the last few people in the raid the relics they need. At this rate not only do I think HK will be pointless but I don't think many people that have been working on it for months will even see the end content of it or feel rewarded for their efforts.
