While I see your points about why the hardest-of-hardcore raiders provide some value to the game, I'm very glad that Blizzard has made their needs a much lower priority than in years past.Losing the top 0.1% of players to boredom with the game's difficulty is much better than losing the interest of masses of people who really wish to experience raiding content at the much smaller/more casual pace that Wrath has enabled.

Bump. I don't really care if 25thNov beats all the content in the game in a week, or in a year. What's important for me is if my casual guild will be able to raid all the raids in game and have fun while doing that. If the answer is 'yes', Blizzard has done a great job with the expansion.This is comming from someone who has cleared ZA only after the nerfs. I've never seen the inside of MH nor BT, let alone Sunwell (I've seen the inside of The Eye solo on my rogue ^^).I want to be able to enjoy all the game's content. Thank you Blizzard for making it possible.

While I agree with the casual guilds being able to see all the content is a good thing, I also think that making it "too easy" is going to remove that feeling of accomplishment for the guilds that go through "progression" and not steamrolling. Before the pre-wrath nerf patch my guild was just at the start of Hyjal/BT. Being able to go into those places made it feel like we were doing something right. The content felt "epic". Downing a boss after several wipes felt like a great accomplishment. We weren't a top guild. Maybe top 30% on the server at most. Most of the hardcore guilds were already farming sunwell. But it still felt epic to us. Even going in after the nerf patch and taking down Kalecgos felt great, because it takes extreme coordination and Sunwell was famous for being difficult. It just feels like the current content won't have that "epic" feel to it. But who knows. I may be wrong. I'll find out this weekend if we steamroll the content or if we spend most of our time wiping. I just hope it doesnt turn out like Kara was post 3-patch. That was like being showered in purples for under an hours worth the work.
