Admit it, like most people, you probably drop from your daily dungeon group when you see the Oculus loading screen come up after you get teleported to a dungeon via the new LFG system. And this will result in the annoying 15 minute dungeon cooldown, preventing you from queuing for the next 15 minutes.
I’m occasionally guilty of this, especially when I’m in a hurry and I just want to do the random daily dungeon for the Emblem of Frost quickly. I do the Random Heroic Dungeon on three toons everyday so sometimes I just want to get it done and over so I can do other things.
You know, when you really think about it, Heroic Oculus isn’t exactly that hard anymore, unlike before. It’s been extremely nerfed and it’s actually really quite easy if everyone knows what to do. But the idea of summoning and dismissing your drake to get around a dungeon gives you this really uncomfortable feeling that just makes you want to avoid the dungeon altogether, hehe!
As for me, the first time we did Heroic Oculus during its earlier months, we spent a total of 3 hours inside the dungeon and spent hundreds of gold for repair bills. That pretty much left a bad taste in our mouth, and every time we see or hear Oculus, we kind of remember how it was.
But anyway, Blizzard has decided to give a little incentive to people who decide to brave Heroic Oculus when they get it from a random heroic dungeon queue. After you’ve killed Ley Guardian Eregos, each player will get a loot bag as a special reward. The loot bag will contain the following: Emblems of Triumph x 2, rare gems and a chance to get the Reins of the Azure Drake. (You can also get the Reins of the Azure Drake from Malygos in the Eye of Eternity as well, for both 10 and 25 mans)
So how’s that for a bribe? Is it enough to make you go in and raid Heroic Oculus? Maybe, maybe not!
