Breakfast Topic: Do you still do scenarios?

Anne Stickney

Capping my valor each week is one of those things that grows less important as a patch wanes on -- but with Siege of Orgrimmar still incredibly fresh, I find myself back to capping my valor every week. While most players might choose the route of heroics or LFR, I prefer running a daily scenario or two in order to get my valor points. It's a little slower in accrual, but I just can't help it. I like scenarios. I like the nearly instant queues so much more than waiting in an endless line for a heroic or LFR as a dps.

I like that I don't have to pester anyone in my guild to do them. I like that they usually run fairly quickly -- far more quickly now that most everyone these days is decked out in decent gear. And to be clear, I'm talking about regular scenarios here, not the heroic variety. I could grab a couple of people to do heroics if I wanted to, but there's something oddly soothing about slipping quietly into a scenario with a couple of strangers, beating the heck out of a bunch of sha, saurok, or angry drunken pirate hozen, and finishing the place in record time.

I'm wondering, however, particularly with the advent of heroic scenarios -- how many of you still do the normal version of scenarios these days? Is it something you do to cap valor or justice points, or is it strictly an alt activity? Unga Ingoo still ranks as my favorite, but which scenarios stood out to you? And perhaps most importantly -- would you like to see scenarios make a return next expansion?
