For all the people who say raiding is "easy" right now. Try doing Sath with 2-3 adds then tell me it's easy. 9

I fully agree with this statement. Sarth (it is Sarth btw), is extremely eazy with no drakes. As soon as you add that first drake however the difficulty jumps alot. Three drakes TBH is just insane.I think blizzard really likes acheivements as a timed event type of deal. Zul'Aman was a challenging instance, but only the best could get the mount.I don't think you truly clear all the content until you complete all the achievements. Its not just mounts, its extra gear as well (in 10 man if you get two drakes you get a ilvl 213 piece of gear, thats 25 man level.)Remember the time it took to do 3 drakes after all content had been cleared was longer than the time it took to level to 80 and clear all the content. Thats something to take notice of.

Sarth-10 to make it interesting :DA friend brought this up today, it's one of the few raids where the 10-man version is actually harder than the 25-man version (I'll take his word for it, haven't been there myself).
No kidding. I admit raid progression is easier than it should be at the moment. We are seeing a lot of guilds who couldn't even down Illidan pre-3.0 full clear 10/25 man Naxx. We are not even trying at the moment for server first progression knowing just about anyone could do these raids. I am really hoping Uldaur is harder than Naxx to seperate the casuals from the dedicated/hardcore.

People keep saying this about the drakes thing. I don't like that argument at all. "The people who think raiding is too easy should try it with a gimmick to make it harder! Try it with all the drakes! Try it blindfolded! Use an addon to randomly rebind all your hotkeys, then tell me you can do it just rolling your face on the keyboard!" Nobody wants a fight to be hard because they did it naked, because they did it with a mage as a tank, or any other such non-sense. The truth from many sources is that completing the raiding content is too easy. If blizz had chosen a mechanic the prevented the drakes from being killed, it may have legitamately been considered part of the encounter. But admit it, saying "try it with the drakes" is like saying "try beating it by only using downranked spells!"

@ adam83If there was an achievement for using downranked spells, yes. Otherwise, no.
