I understand the new operation is coming next month, i also understand you can't have a solid release date, you certainly are polishing the last detail right now.

I do think 4 bosses is too short, ideally you'd have around 8-10 boss. The tier one (EV and KP) did have that.

Something among 4 bosses and 4 mini bosses sounds okay to me.

EV and KP had 4 each, so unless thats what your saying and ive misunderstood you, your wrong.
While i do think 8 bosses would be cool, i for one know that i could not do 8-10 bosses in one night, and having to clear 2 nights a week for a raid...

EV and KP had 5 each; so actually, you're wrong.

And sadly, statements like this are why we don't get more, and why people complain about no content after a month.

technically speaking, both EV and KP have 10 encounter rewarding loot and having codex entry, thus one may say 10 boss. But i agree with you, there is only 3 real boss in EV

The pylon encounter, is not a boss, you just kill (easy) trash while cycling through symbol to find the combination, the first time i did, i totally expected a boss coming out once we opened the vault, but nothing.

The next encounter is just one on ones, no raid coordination, no strat, no team work.

Those are no boss in my book, but they are indeed encounter rewarding boss loot. That is why i said 8-10 boss, depending how you look at it.

i don't agree, once you have mastered the encounter and harvest a few pieces of loot, there is no doubt in my mind that a competent raid group can clear it in a night. Icecrown citadel had 12 bosses, and clearing in one evening in a pug group was largely doable, once server population got familiarized with the various encounter.

As for hard and nightmare mode, it's another story, but i'll take the wild guess that player willing to progress in hard and nightmare mode, of the current content, does raid more than once a week.

Better to make 2 ops with 5 bosses than 1 with 10. Amount of content is same, and you don't have to worry about that one guy that can't raid on second day and can't find group to fit his 6/10 lockout.

And Terror is in similar(as in, not the same, similar) position to Denova and KP was to EV. With EC Nim targeted after Terror, and no knowledge if it'll come with Nightmare mode already in, or what gear will drop at what mode, we can assume those two ops are intended as pair just like EV/KP are. Same gear look only supports this idea.

Nah they said it will be a step up in gear reward too.

i.e. Storymode Terror = Campaign
HM Terror = New Set (2.2)
Nightmare EC = New Set (2.2)
Nightmare Terror = Dunno, but probably the next set after that (2.3)

It wont be launching with Nightmare, just like EC.

EC Nightmare will come AFTER Terror but hopefully soon after, and is intended as a 'Challenge' and an alternate source for the new set of gear.

Edit: I reckon the reason they are no longer making 2 'pairs' of raids like EV and KP (both Tier 1, dropping Columi in Story and Rakata in HM) is because it clearly takes them longer to create content than they claimed. And for that reason it just wouldnt make sense to release the next raid 4+ Months after Denova, and have it drop exactly the same loot.

I'm a fan of being able to clear an instance in one night. 4-5 hours is a good max. More bosses is fine with me, as long as trash is reduced.
