I'm really hoping the comment on heroic mode - "to shine a much harsher light on class balance." turns out to be true. It's one of the things that bothers me about the removal of the proto-drakes as achievement rewards. People who raid only 10 mans will effectively never be able to get these rewards as long as 10 man hard modes are tuned with 25 man gear in mind.25 man gear makes it easier to complete 10 man achievements. The difference isn't huge but it's large enough. When 10 man Sarth + 3D is rare, even in a decked out 25 man raid guild, there's a balance problem in my opinion.Admittedly on the other hand, if they tuned it lower then the 10 man achievements could become trivial for those decked out in higher iLevel gear from heroic raids.It's a thin line to tread and I hope they can manage it properly =/

The assumption that Replenishment is available to the raid is pretty ridiculous. It was allocated to specs that are somewhat unpopular anyway. They remain unpopular despite being so "needed" for raids. We have zero Replenishment specs in our raids; we're a casual guild....isn't requiring a Replenishment spec a clear cut case of "bring the class, not the player"??? Guess we'll see how things go for casuals with the mana regen nerf. I have been thrilled to actually have a shot at 10-man raids, I never have before.
