    Default Update Level 50 raids

    So after reading online it seems that pre-SL raids are pretty much skipped unless they are being done for achievements or a view of the old raids. I wonder how hard it would be for trion to make those raids important again by simply "bumping" up stats of the raid to be challenging for a level 60 and keep the gear in the raid somewhat the same with just a new level adjustment for new drops that has a boost in stats making the raids viable again. Orignal Everquest had to go back and do this to some of their raids due to the fact that the gods of Everquest became nothing more than a walk in the park due to new levels and raids.

    Any thoughts on the subject?

    Could Trion please give an announcement regarding this issue so this stance can be linked for threads like these? There have been countless of these threads already, with overall negative response to these suggestions and this thread will just become troll food.

    Nothing personal Skeithe, but your suggestion has been made numerous times and the response is pretty much the same, some people are for it, most are not (talking about forum responses).

    Somewhere in this video Adam H (Not to sure if he is still working for Trion), addresses updating level 50 Raids and Dungeons and says that it is unlikely to happen~ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gGBL2a0bJ5M

    Considering at that point at time the Dungeons and Raid Team had around 6-7 Staff.
    After the layoffs to the best of my knowledge they now have 2 (Cyzo and Halvon), possibly 3 (Adam aka Decoy), so I would not get your hopes up.

    Recycled old content =/= new content.

    Those raids had their time, and it has passed. If they do it now to the level 50 raids, they'll have to do it for the lvl 60 raids on the next expansion. If they did it for lvl 50 > lvl 60, why not tier 1 > tier 2, why not 10man > 20 man, etc...

    No thanks. I want new and different content. Let the old stuff collect dust.

    No idea where you pulled those numbers from, perhaps you know things I don't. I know Shaughnessy aka Doctapus and Adam aka Decoy are no longer there, but they have Cyzo this tier. Not aware of any other personnel changes.
    Nope.

    I'd love to see a level 60 HK. Pretty much everyone I know considers HK the best raid Rift has had. The others I don't care one way or the other.

    I don't agree with giving the revised instances gear drops though. Perhaps different rewards like XP crystals, new achievements, infinity stones, new high level consumables, or new high level recipes.

    Honestly, I was surprised this wasn't the way it was to begin with. I don't think they'll actually do it though.

    Well IF the devs could update the old raids to be relevant again without taking away from creating new content and making sure all raids stay relevant in a progression I believe a LOT of people would like that cause yea im glad you been there and done that but most havent and would like to be able to experience it the way it was ment to be experienced.

    The old content shouldn't be relevant and its extremely boring for most of the player-base as its all too fresh. It's a been there done that type of thing. And i know 99% of the people who raid watch videos and read strats before even pulling a boss, but actually figuring out what works and how is the most if not the only interesting part of raiding. It would be interesting to see old content again the way ive seen it in other multi x-pac mmos, reintroducing an old raid instance on a later new expansion as an intro type level instance for raiding, but never rehashed old content in back to back releases.

    So, you're done with Pac-Man on the Atari 2600? Wouldn't want you to miss out on content the way it's meant to be experienced.
