I fully agree, but it's not just the gear. It's the sense of accomplishment. Forget video games... let's say we're talking summer softball leagues. When someone hit's a home run there's cheers because it doesn't happen every at bat. But if the fences were moved in so much that every hit was a home run... meh. Who cares? Too easy raiding is the same way. It's not just the cutting edge guilds and it's not just raids. Regular five mans are easy. You don't need to CC or really worry about anything... just kill the trash and bosses. This is in T4-ish gear, not Sunwell. Now, people have said to me, "well try it as a new 70 hitting Northrend with little gear" to which I reply... how manny people leveling from 70 do you thnk match that description? Isn't it much more likely that most 70s spent at least a few months there and have decent gear? Isn't that why instances started hard and got easier as people who didn't gear up at max level started hitting that level? My main concern is this... Decent midrange guilds are starting Naxx now. We'll clear it in the first couple of resets, say by Mid January. By March or so we'll be completely done with the current raids. If we get a couple more raids in the game... that might last, what? 2-4 more months for any decent guild? So we're at summer. And everything is done. If the next expansion is about 2 years from now... what do I do for the 18 months after I've cleared all of the raids?
