Dual specs? Can't wait

Why is everything so difficult for casuals, including reading comprehension. I said 25 mans are bad! Less people in group is good! I think 10 is a nice balance between the chore of organizing too many people, and the restriction on what kind of encounter you can design. Yes, 25 mans are heroic 10mans. I'm saying that is a stupid idea. Heroic raids should still be 10 mans, but harder. The same way a normal 5man dungeon doesn't become a 10man on heroic mode.Save big raids for world pvp, or cooperative world boss kills. Make 10man content more challenging than kill-the-adds/stay-out-of-the-fire. Make harder 10mans and show the casuals that the reason they don't raid isn't because they don't have the time, it's because some raid encounters require more than 2344, something which they already fail at.

because my guild likes to work together. we have enough tanks and healers, and dps for a balanced 25 man, but when we split up the two teams aren't as balanced

Just because 25 man content isn't for you, doesn't mean it isn't for everyone.As a co-GM of a quite large guild, we will probably be running 25 +10 on the same night or maybe even 25+25. that's hard enough, can you imagine trying to sort out 10x5??Anyhow, most of our guild, and I think most people in general feel that 25 mans are "the real deal" and 10's are just practice mode. But if that's your cup of tea, run with it.

Because game content should be more accessible for people who don't raid endlessly and would almost neverbe accepted to join a hardcore guild just to do it.To me, Raiding in WoW was a catch 22 situation. You needed good gear to raid, but the only place to get the good gear was from raids.Seeing as many guilds didn't accept me simply for my class and gear options, how was I going to get good enough gear to continue without raiding???I say its good that casuals can do 10 - 25 man raiding now. And its also good that 80 blues can make excellent entry level raiding gear.

@Clbull: "To me, Raiding in WoW was a catch 22 situation. You needed good gear to raid, but the only place to get the good gear was from raids."This was one of the things that was so evil about pre-tBC raiding, and was still happening in tBC to a much reduced extent - guild hopping. You'd join a guild that was just starting the lowest end raids, snag the gear, then move to a guild that would take you to the next level of raiding since you had a bit better gear. Repeat.It sucked majorly. With this "new" style of raiding, it should make it less important to need to guild hop, and offers less room for guild hoppers even. It will still happen, sure. It will never stop - it should just happen less often now.
