Yes it is perfectly bloody ok to ten-man Arthas. Why? Because my character is supposed to be the centre of "my" WoW story, and Arthas is supposed to be that final battle our individual stories are supposed to draw towards.You know, I consider myself a bit of a lore buff and as much as you can claim "I'm a lore nerd, Arthas is too powerful for 25 people to fight, let alone ten!" Can you seriously put an arbitrary number on these encounters from a story perspective?The whole point of the GAME is to make you feel as though you're growing in strength, abilities and power. Obviously as individuals our characters are no Thrall or Lothar, but they're getting pretty damn close by level 70 even. According to whatever factions we're exhalted with we're their sole greatest champions worthy of praise and adulation. Let's just ignore the 4 other guys you did the quests with eh? Just part of how an MMO makes "you" feel special.Anyways, I'm veering off-topic. The big thing is that for the first time ever we should appreciate the fact that Blizzard is weighing accessibility of *content* versus accessibility of *rewards* and seperating the two. If I'm in a casual guild, don't care as much about the top epic loot and just want the fulfillment of facing an important enemy (especially considering all the leadup to illidan while levelling to 70 and then just having it all fizzle out for casuals when they hit the raid wall), then yes, my supposedly heroic and undefeatable gnome who can set things on fire with his mind and summon waves of demons should be able to face down the lich king with nine other people of equal stature at 80.Anyway.... Rant over.
