What about VR being "fixed"? Here's a "deep breath" that Blizzard has just totally overlooked, even though they claimed to have fixed it in 2.4.2. Not that he's no longer doable, but maybe fixing the obvious problems they claimed to have fixed in the *actual* game should still take precedence over designing mounts that two people can ride (whoopie!...) 8 months from now.

You're right! Blizzard needs to halt all other development efforts stat and address this travesty, nay, this crime against humanity! In fact, call off Starcraft 2, Diablo 3, their "unnamed next-gen MMO", and retrain their entire office staff to retuning these obviously game-breaking issues NAOW! While they're at it, Vivendi needs to sell off its other assets and put full effort into making Void Reaver the most highly tuned NPC encounter ever imagined, EVER - Oh, and easy enough for a PuG of 80-year olds to one-shot first time.Too much to ask?

Void Reaver is actually very doable and we still consider it a loot pinata. My hunter's 25-man raid managed to do the fight for the very first time the very same week it became "broken". After a single wipe where people were getting accustomed to the mechanics of the fight, Void Reaver fell well ahead of the enrage timer. This raid has never known it any other way.My priest's 25-man raid, however, seems to have problems with this fight (though we do manage to down it each week). We did it pre-"broken" status and so many of our raiders used DBM and other addons as a crutch.This is part of the reason why I dislike many of the addons out there. People rely far too heavily on them and then claim that things are "broken" or "not doable" because the fight's become much more difficult. I understand that they make things easier for people, but they're not absolutely required. In fact, I remember having just leveled my last priest to 60 and hitting Molten Core the past after Decursive became obsolete. Lucifron was ridiculous, mostly because out of the entire raid only three people (a mage, a paladin, and myself on the newly minted priest) could Decurse, Cleanse, and Dispel with the addon. That probably should be a very simple task to do on your own, but people's reliance on the addon -- despite being told that it didn't work any more -- led to more wipes than I've ever experienced on a boss.
