Its strange for me to hear all the complaining that gets done about Kara. A nightmare at release? I thought they tuned it perfectly. The implementation of it as a 10 man raid and the effect that had on 40 man raid guilds was one issue, but I found that it was just the right difficulty to feel a sense of accomplishment for downing bosses, and actually required gearing up in 5 mans before stepping in - and I'm not exactly talking from the standpoint of a hardcore raider. Also, it played itself out to last all the way until the end of BC.Naxx, however, is cleared by every single person that reaches level 80, no gearing up required, step in and clear the whole place in greens, at least thats how my modest casual guild did it (and we certainly never did naxx pre BC). Can you really imagine everyone still running 10 man naxx a year from now when they've been clearing it every week since release?Blizz has said for itself in blue posts that the real focus for "hardcore" raiders now is going to be the accomplishments. But who cares about those? Even when the points can be redeemed for something I can't picture myself working on 8 manning naxx with no deaths for a vanity pet, since I guess I fit into the hardcore category all of a sudden.

Haven't you been reading? Achievements are for the hardcore now! You're supposed to want to get that 10 point spacebuck achievement for downing a boss with no armor on. If not, don't complain. =/
