Blizzard really dropped the ball in this whole situation. 10 man raiders are being discriminated against to such a high level that it's not even funny. We're being told that the REAL raiding is the 25 mans and the 10 man raids are just kind of there for all of us noobs who can't seem to find 15 other people to run with. Despite the fact that all 10 man content has proven to be more difficult and requires more coordination than their 25 man counterparts.10 man raids should be a separate progression path from 25 mans, not getting the leftovers as we bump up to the next tier. Except now I can't purchase anything of a higher iLevel because Blizzard in their infinite wisdom has decided that we now need to earn all of our gear through drops from bosses while 25 man raiders can go ahead and use their new EoCs to buy new gear AND their Tier 8.5 pieces. Can I do that? Nooooope...I get to purchase the leftover iLevel213 shit from Naxx25 that I didn't run very often. And then on here we get to see all of these 25 man raiders getting freaked out because (heresy, I know) 10 man raiders are getting the short end of the stick and hate hearing people say that their raids are much easier. I have to agree with the author of this piece, the raid progression is no longer separate but equal. Blizzard has made it quite clear that raid progression is separate and they don't have the time to work on 10 man progression with the same level of interest as the 25 man.
