I can see both sides of this argument.On the one hand, nerfing raids is kind of like opening the clubhouse door - it blurs the line between the casual and the hardcore. So I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot more T6 popping up in Shattrath in the coming weeks.On the other, these raids have been around for a while now. I've only ever seen up to Gorefiend in BT, and with this nerf it's looking possible for me to actually get an Illidan kill.Frankly, I'm glad. While I got into this game way too late to enjoy even pre-nerf Magtheridon, it means that I may get to see all the cool end-game boss encounters before Black Temple and Sunwell are consigned to obscurity, much like Naxx and Blackwing Lair.

I'm sorry to say you've pretty soundly missed the point. This is not a measure taken to let less skilled/geared players waltz in and lay the smack upon The Betrayer or any other raid boss. This is being done because of the vast changes to class mechanics that are coming along in the same patch.It's actually very simple. Make these changes, and keep the raids playable, or only change the class mechanics and make raiding anywhere from extremely hard to impossible. There's nothing more to it. :)

While I agree that the changes are done not to nerf the raids but to make them possible with all the new mechanics overall I still expect a lot more things to geteasier then harder.My reasoning is simple on this one, I cannot believe that with all the multitude of changes the solution to make the same difficulty as before is a flat 30% change to HP everywhere. So I would agree that this should be an overall nerf to the raid bosses and allow more people who would have screwed up minute 8 in a 10 minute fight to get them down in 7 minutes fine instead. Meaning less attempts needed to get the job done, I think its a good move from Blizzard, things are going to be obsolete in a months time and anything that allows more people to see the content now can't be a bad thing.
