I wouldn't mind more difficult instances, but CC doesn't make something difficult. I keep hearing all this talk about the good ol' days where instances were tough. I honestly think it is all a bunch of garbage. The only reason Northrend seems so easy is it took almost no time to go from quest blues to best in game epics. Of course heroics are easy now. You were supposed to be done with them about a week after the game launched because that's about how long it took to outgear them.Do you know what else was easy? BC heroics when we out geared them. Magister's terrace wasn't hard because it required CC, it was hard because it required learning and knowing what each mob was capable of. Until we learned what they did, we just CC'd them to be sure. After every mob was clearly understood, other methods could be used to deal with them.There are mob abilities to learn in some of the Northrend heroics as well. How many wipes did it take to learn that someone should do something about the spell flingers in H OK? Once everyone knows to deal with them, are they hard anymore? Would it be any more difficult if you had to have a mage press polymorph to deal with them than it would be to interrupt their casts?CC doesn't make things hard. CC makes things tedious. After the first attempt you just "learn" instances and do the same thing over and over again. I for one would prefer less trash, and more interesting boss mechanics. Again, it is trivial after you learn it, but I'd rather learn a boss that a trash pull.
