If they dropped the same gear, it would kill 25-man raiding. They would have to be just as difficult in order for the gear to be the same. And in that case if A and B are just as hard to do; but A takes less people than B does; you will almost always choose A than B. It's more efficient, productive, logistically logical.Now, I am actually a 10-man raider myself. I think 25-mans are so full of distractions. Twenty five people talking on chat; twenty five people who have to show up at the same time; who have to learn the same strategy, who have to be geared. From an organizational standpoint, putting a 25-man raid together is a nightmare compared to putting a 10-man together. It doesn't mean 25 mans are harder to get through. Oh no, they are actually easier to finish. They are just harder to -start-. And IDK about you, but I don't like wasting two hours while a group gets organized. In this sense, you have to reward twenty five mans with better gear; otherwise no one would bother to organize them. Blizzard can't remove the better rewards; unless they just want 25-mans to dissappear.That said, I think there needs to be more overlap in gear. 10-mans should drop 25% item level 213 items, for example. Would it completely kill twenty five mans? No, because if you can organize it (like in a guild), you still have an incentive to do one twenty-five man, instead of three 1o-mans. But other than that; if you really, really, really don't want to do twenty-five mans, ie. it's not fun, you wouldn't feel forced to. And why shouldn't you get just as good gear anyway? 10-mans ARE harder.
