I tried the Culling of Stratholme on normal with some guildies, and wanted to tear my hair out. It's not so much the bosses are difficult, but there are random undead non-elites that pop out of the ground every so often. They only have about 600 health, but they will put you in combat, preventing eating/drinking, rezzes, etc.Plus, again... Why are we helping Arthas?

It's a timeline thing, not culling Stratholme would've put the scourge on a faster route to total annihilation of life on Azeroth.Culling it, makes Arthas go North, Kill a Dwarf (yay) and get this badass twohander to kill demons with (erm and O yeah, become head of the scourge himself ... can't win 'em all I guess)

We hit the Nexus pretty much as soon as 5 guildies had finished installing wotlk, and we did Utgarde Keep, Azjol-Nerub and most of Ahn'Kahet at 70. We've since done Drak'Tharon and Gundrak, also at well below recommended level.We ran Culling of Stratholme last night (with 3 out of 5 of us being level 75 :-< fortunately tank and healer were closer to the right level).I've loved every minute of every one of them.... BUTEven running them at well below recommended level (I have so far not won a single drop I could use right away) they have been pretty easy. Strat was more challenging, for the reasons Afrit stated, but we still only suffered one wipe (got to keep away from those zombie corpse explosions).I'm hoping it's because we were reasonably well geared going in and that heroics will step up the difficulty a bit.

@Axolotl*SPOILER*If you do some quests in Dragonblight, you'll find out that said dwarf is still alive.

Just have someone AOE them down. The only thing I have wanted to pull my hair out about Strat is how long the time is between bosses. We have done the timed event a few times. One time we messed up thinking the boss was after Mal'ganis not before, and another time every spawn was at the opposite corner of the zone and Arthas took his sweet time meeting us. Even with that we still engaged the boss with less then a min. left, got him down to 50% and then he just walked through the portal. Oh well, we have 2 drakes and we will have more.
