It really felt like it was tuned around abusing chi explosion from brewmasters. Getting 17:30 with a non-optimal comp is ridiculous. In mop its pretty easy to get gold with any comp. not sure if you want these to be impossible for some classes or not.
That time is not final - it was a test to make sure we could cleanly hotfix completion times. What was the best time you were able to manage with that group?
The philosophy is that Gold should be doable with any reasonable comp (i.e. not 4 of the same class or something), though of course some group makeups may fare better than others. It's also important to remember that the intended tuning for Gold is what Gold felt like in Mists in 5.0. Nowadays in 5.4, with power creep from sockets and other sources, it's a far different story, so a direct comparison isn't ideal.
