Is path 1 or path 3 the easier to move on to while we wait for Arena net to undo their failure?
The new CoF path is to get a good team and do the dungeon properly. For elite PvE content, dungeons should take you an hour and they should test your skills. If the average Joe can do it, then it's just not challenging or fun. I was hand-held throughout most of the game. This is the place where I want to test what I've learnt. Don't like it? Don't do dungeons.
