I had something to add to this 10/25 raid thing. Why shouldnt I as a casual player never be able to obtain great gear, mabye not the best. Ive put in my time, i pay the same amount every month. But since i cant sit in front of my computer for hours on end im forever denied the (for me and i think most people) the best part of the game, making your avatar powerful. I PAY for this game, some PART of my 3 years of monthly fees went into making the SWP but ill never step foot in there, i feel almost taken advantage off. I love helping to develop content ill never see. Yeah yeah blizz is making changes...but whats teh point! if the gear is still underpowered. I dont deny that 25 man raid teams shouldnt be rewarded, but I feel like the drops should be the same. 25 mans should be harder and the sense of acomplishment should be greater and it would sense those factors are completely related. I mean you still get your awesome gear, mabye something simple, like a pwning mount or a title or.....really out there a simple racial like skill or passive nothing OP. The only diffrence I see should be the amount of gear the bosses drop. Clearly less for 10s more for 25s. Anyways thats what I think but the hardcores would flip I guess. I just don't see why as a casual I get the shaft when i pay to play just like anyone else. Everyone got so comfortable with the whole paying to play mmo's, I remember my first (DAOC) I thought it was the craziest thing and im sure many would agree with me about their first time putting in those digits. Mmo's arent for casuals anymore. World of Harcore pay and play, casuals stop wasting your money.

Oh P.S oh the lore note, I'd like to see a poll on why people play WoW. I think lore would be close to the bottem with getting gear at the top and social networking dead in the middle. Why do you play?

Lulwut...WoW isnt hardcore anymore you noob, and you don't deserve the same gear as people who raid 4-6 hours a night just because you pay. They get the gear because they put something infintely more valuable...time. Back to WoW being "hardcore", where is your evidence for WoW being hardcore, its possibly the most casual MMO ever. People who farm Karazhan can get into MH and own Rage, and they all seem to get the best trash drops too. So you're saying that this is hardcore? No offence but you make me lol

@Dabura (and to an extent Nyice)Of course people on the lower end don't deserve the same gear, that's why the 25-man versions will have better gear, but they do deserve the same (or at least similar) experiences. The thing you don't seem to be grasping is that not everyone can put 4-6 hours into raiding because some of us have other things to do with our time. Blizzard is working to appease both the low-end and high-end gamers alike and I feel that what has been revealed is a positive step in the right direction. Though we must compromise gear for the experience, I think that the compromise will prove to work itself out for the best.

Yeah I think I would be love to spend 20-30 hours a week in the SWP to get a title while everyone else can come and join us in a 10 man version and get the same gear since they are to busy to do 25 man raids. I think the easier fights in the 10 mans should actually give better loot than the 25 mans since most of the 10 man raiders are really busy and casual so its not fair that they have to pay the same amount of money as the people who get better gear for doing much more research into fights attempts on bosses getting the right gear sets to tank the different encounters. Wow is getting to hardcore we should all just start at 70 or 80 soon with all the best gear and roll our faces on the keyboard and feel good.

I'm sorry, but I don't understand that point at all. You can't buy Ninja Gaiden, then complain that even though you paid the same $50 every else did, you didn't get to see past the first boss, because you only play for 2 hours a week or you suck.
