How do you compare it to the first time you ran ramparts?

I hope it's nothing like the first time I ran Ramparts. My retarded group wiped three times on the first pull. After the third time, the hunter went AFK while running back to the instance, and our warrior got bored and decided to do some PVP right outside the instance and accidently fell to his death. At which point the healer d/ced and I ran for my life.

Much, much easier than I remember Ramparts being, but I will admit my relative gear level is higher now than it was back then. I'm much closer to 'beating' Burning Crusade than I was WoW Classic. However, the mechanics in Utgarde seem more forgiving after you've seen what they do. Ramparts had a lot more you had to watch out for.That being said, Utgarde is the extreme example of Wrath being easy. The Nexus, which is intended for the same level range, was quite a bit more challenging (though still not hard) and everything after that gets progressively more challlenging.

the entry level dungeons will be easy for people who are going in on their toons with T5/T6+ gear, but if you're going in with a fresh toon, or a toon you leveled to 70 and then stabled (hit 70 and then stopped playing it, didnt even gear them up) while you wait for wrath it will prolly be harder

@9No, gear level has very little to do with difficulty. For example go look at good guilds like Nihilum running T5/T6 raids with characters in T4 equiv gear. I out perform epiced players with my greens and blue alts all the time. What the article talks about is a lack of difficult *mechanics* (hard to pull mobs due to pathing, packs of mobs that need to be CCed to live through, bosses that aren't just tank and spank with a simple gimmick etc).The last boss of Ramparts is a good example of a fairly difficult boss for the gear level. It isn't just simple tank and spank, and the damage output is quite high for the level range.
