I wish they had done this from the start. That’s how raidfinders work in other mmo’s: new players can get a feel for the raid’s mechanics and layout, and maybe receive some entry level gear. To prepare them for the real deal.
Alas, in aoc raidfinder makes the real deal obsolete. Unfortunately the damage has by now been done, nerfing token drops now is pretty pointless (although I would still like it).
