Direbrew is stupid easy, right?
I mean literally zone in, pew pew, loot and win?
The event is exactly the same as last year. Last year we actually saw the brewmaidens throwing stuff and putting kegs on people and adds and insanity. This year, it’s just a zerg-fest.
But they couldn’t update Direbrew any more than they could update heroics – for the simple reason that it’s challenging for a just hit 80 group. I’ve been the tank for two groups that… well… I [as a dk and warrior tank] was double the dps and damage of the next person. And 2k is a generous estimate of my dps. The fight was long and we actually had to drink the brewmaiden brew thrown at us and so on and so forth.
The Direbrew event isn’t what’s broken here. WE are broken. We so overgear this at the upper levels of gearing – just like heroics. Would you really have wanted them to make it say… ICC5 instances hard? That your new 80 alts would have to attain certain levels of gearing to do a holiday event? It’s supposed to be a fun, relatively easy event – not something you have to plod through.
And you know what? I don’t care. I’m rather enjoying the chance to gear up a couple toons a little better in anticipation of Cataclysm where the mobs are going to hit at least twice as hard as they do now.
Don’t worry – hard heroics and events will come soon enough… and the QQ from that will be epic.
