WoW community defends Season of Discovery after player calls for new dungeons

World of Warcraft: Season of Discovery has proved to be a hugely popular revamping of the Classic WoW formula. Despite that, many are calling for further changes, but some suggestions are proving more popular than others.

There’s no denying that the player base has a lot of new activities to try in Season of Discovery. For PvP, the first phase introduced the open-world Battle for Ashenvale. The developer then built on this success with The Blood Moon event in STV for Phase Two.

For PvE, Blizzard went in a new direction, adapting existing dungeons into 10-man raids for players to enjoy at the level cap for each phase. This started with Blackfathom Deeps, before Phase Two allowed players to conquer Gnomeregan again.

Now, one player has called for the developer to go a step further, but not everybody in the community agrees.

Players think new Season of Discovery dungeons could be too ambitious

In a post on Reddit, one user shared their belief that the developer behind Season of Discovery should start working on entirely new dungeons.

The player’s call for fresh 5-man activities was not meant with positive feedback from everyone. Many thought that entirely new dungeons could be an ambitious step too far.

One suggested: “Completely new dungeon is asking a lot from what they seem to have to work with. Revamping one max level 5 man to have harder mechanics and drop 1 item for each class that is close to the items in the new raid seems like a good goal. Never instead of the raid but along side it.”

Another added: “Add new rare/event bosses to existing dungeons. Bosses that only appear after a sequence of events happen like skipping certain bosses or looting rare items that summon bosses (imagine a rare lamp that summons a genie boss etc).”

Whatever the case, the community remains open to any ideas Blizzard may have in Season of Discovery. Most of their efforts have been well received thus far, so it will be interesting to see if they can carry that momentum, into later phases.
