Mostly good changes, but I'm not happy about the 10/25 man thing either.This isn't about "elite guilds parading around Shatt in their T6", it's about something else. A sense that, once you walk into BT, you earned these sights, instead of walking in having done it in 10 man already.Suddenly the only incentive to do 25 man raids is better loot and a bit of kudos, and frankly that's poor. It's like we now just get heroic raids with better loot, instead of a final few raid tiers that were hard earned by groups of 25 from the start.

The solution, as someone who doesn't expect to have to raid 10 man at all anymore, is to not run 10 mans.

Actually, I think the point of the Blizzard's decision was not only to allow the smaller raiding guilds to see all of the end game content (which I consider to be a good thing since the story progression happens largely in the raid instances), but also to free the larger raiding guilds from the need to go through the 10 person content first, like it was with the Burning Crusade.

The progression for 25 and 10 mans are separate. You won't be running Karazhan, SSC/TK, BT, and Sunwell 10 mans just to get to the Karazhan 25 man.Also, the fight mechanics will be very different. You won't be able to learn the Arthas 25 man fight by doing the 10 man version anymore than Kael'thas the heroic boss is a way to learn Kael'thas the raid boss. Sure, there are a few similarities, but ultimately one is leagues above the other.
