I would have to agree that WoTLK should have been shipped with another Raid, Ulduar perhaps. The complaint is warranted by hardcore guilds because there isn't anything TRULY challenging and new, but on the other hand I really like how Blizzard is catering to more people with lowering the bar for Naxx. The fact that you can already form a PUG for Naxx speaks volumes as to what Blizzard was going for and has seemed to achieved. Use this time to level up your reps and other fun stuff. Heck, get a Traveler's Tundra Mammoth while you're waiting for Arthas. I like what Blizzards doing, harder stuff will come.

What are the hardcores going to do? Go to WHO? LOL... naw, it's simple: the raids are easy because there was no great hill to climb.When we went vanilla to TBC, we had to take 40 man groups, and pair them into 10 men groups, then to 25. Notice how that doesn't go even? THAT was the difficulty in TBC, not so much the content. People who came in later - say those people leveling BElfs and Draenei, didn't feel this pinch nearly the same.Wrath seems easier because the exact same groups we ran into SWP we ran into a dungeon with the difficulty of the first bosses of TK after nerfing. And the gear flowed well. And it wasn't very hard to level professions.I'm confident further dungeons will bring the challenge the hardcores want. Until then, how about they do something other then slobber over their mains? Level a DK. Help some other people out leveling. Play more of the game then the same 5 raids.

But WHY level up my reps? My grind 20k gold for a mammoth? I don't want to do pointless crap because the stuff that is the center of the game... raids and instances... is so easy I can watch TV while killing everything. In all the stuff I've done so far I've died maybe 5 times. FIVE. That's silly. People keep saying "But you can get achievements (the shiny gold star from kindergarten applied to WoW)" or "you can level rep up" but they don't stop to think that some of us don't want to just do everything to be doing things... we're after group PvE. I'll level my rep... but only if there's a reason, usually gear to help me raid. Same with gold... I don't care about having a lot just to have it, I want it to be able to make my toons better.I'm absolutely cool with other people loving these things... it's one of the main things I like about WoW, that people can find different things in it to like. But at its heart WoW is about PvE and at max level, that means raids and 5 mans.

@ ClevinsAs my father used to say when I was a kid, "how does it feel to want?"I understand what it is you are looking for, but, unfortunately for you, it isn't in this game now. No matter how badly you want something different and how much you complain about it, you still only have a small set of choices. You can continue to do the same raids over and over again, till boredom melts your brain, you can do something else such as rep or achievements, or you can, GASP, go play another game. Did you know there are other games? And that one can purchase them?While I may be a bit snarky in my delivery, my point is that the game currently is what it is. If this had been an issue in Beta, then maybe people would have had a shot of getting it changed, but it wasn't an issue, or at least not a major one then. Your complaining isn't going to make Blizzard come in an increase the difficulty of the existing raids, because they ARE difficult for people who didn't waltz into Northrend in T5 or greater. In 6 months time, everyone who goes to Northrend will be rocking entirely quest greens and blues, and they HAD to plan for that. If they designed the encounters to require people to have raided in BT beforehand, then they would have a lot more issues than people like you complaining about how easy they are. Like the article correctly stated, the issue isn't whether the current raids are too easy; It's that there isn't another one after the existing set that is much harder. Blizzard could have put in an additional raid, but they didn't, so now you and everyone else needs to wait till it's added. What you do in the meantime is up to you, but that's it.
