Titanforging is the only reason to keep raiding after you've cleared it. There's already much better gear from m+. Without tier to collect or titanforging to give you a chance for an upgrade, raiding is going to be almost entirely worthless.
Scrap Titanforging! If they must have something like that, maybe try a runic system by where you add a rune to increase the ilvl to any item or whatever. Or make Titanforging restricted to the highest tier level content like mythic raids.... Really making the end game content valued and repeated. I'd just like to see RNG removed from my gear. And it put back into my hands with workable achievable goals.
So basically Titanforging with extra steps?
The chance of an item titan-forging to mythic is tiny. I've seen Guild posts (from amongst our raiding team of 30 players and similar number of socials) on a mega forge to mythic quality four times across this entire expac. This was one piece of gear amongst 14 item slots, and 3/4 of these were Mythic raiders. Yes, it's that rare.People jealous of those getting "better gear than me" appear to require the validation of others, not just the satisfaction of knowing yourself that you are capable of doing the highest level of content. Why?
When did this entire community turn into the android from Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy?
lol You know there is another way to accomplish keeping people playing rather than reward them. Think the best way to do this is Have a piece become corrupted with old god influence, and slowly depleat it's Item lvl over time, forcing you to replace that piece eventualy. and If this happens to all new gear, it won't matter if a casual player gets a good piece of gear or not because they have no way to replace it except via raiding which is the only place where gear drops with any regular consistency.
