I see this and think: good. Sure it's not how I play the game (yeah you did all the same quest, did you read any of the quest text?) but there's nothing wrong with that.The players concerned here are the best WoW raiders in the world. The cream of the crop of two different hugely successful PvE guilds. Given that, I really hope they cleared Naxx and Malygos without wiping once. Because if they struggle with it, even a little bit, imagine how the rest of us will fare.Also bear in mind we have been told there's unlikely to be another raid as difficult as Sunwell. We've also been told that Naxx should be easier than Kara. We seem to be trapped in the cycle of assuming that each expansion should provide more difficult content than the last. It shouldn't, and it won't. These guys have mastered the game. They're the best. A few hours to adapt to the 2-3 new class abilities and maybe a couple of tries on fights which use entirely new mechanics and they're laughing.The game won't be made any harder. If Sunwell wasn't a challenge for these guys then none of LK will be. They've devote their lives to being the best at this game. Now they are. As such, everything is easy, including anything new. It's how it should be.

I think you probably make the best point. It's also worth noting that a lot of the raid nerfs were made in part because a lot of the old tactics, 20 people beating drums to give various buffs, shadow priests giving nigh infinite mana, and the chain chug, were made obsolete in Wrath. The thing is that we're looking at the best of the best, they know their stuff and they blitzed the raid content. Now, I do admit I'm surprised they're still walking around in sunwell gear for this, but other than that, well I guess I'll say good for them and hope that I can enjoy the content.It really should be a question of why you're raiding. Are you raiding for loot, because it's fun, or because you want to be seen as someone great?
