@Clbll, read what I said. A voidwalker tank made the encounter trivial, yes they rectified that with the patch, but does it matter anymore? No. Cause now we'll have all this shiny new Ulduar gear to compensate. And while they removed the glory of the naxx raider achieve and mount, they still let us get the Sarth 10 and 25man drake. Is that fair? No.@Super, thanks, I agree that the main reason it seems harder is that its new, give the number crunchers and achievement freaks some time, and we'll see plenty of "Ulduar hard-mode for dummies" pop up.And moondah, +50% health and +25% damage a hard mode does not make, neither does adding an eight minute time limit. The only "Hard Mode" encounter I'd say is deserving of it is The Iron Council. Its unique, at least in terms of the current expansion.A hard mode should be hard, not because of simple buffs, but because the encounter changes radically. Alganon for instance, you have to kill the four watchers in their hardmodes to get to him. Instead of a quest, killing him should reward you with a hard mode for Yogg-Saron. Not just lower sanity, or more damage. But the titans themselves intervening. They come down and start attacking Ulduar, adding in new, random elements into the attack. Parts of the ceiling come crashing down atop players, but can be used to break those who have fallen under Yogg's sway by making it fall on him. Beams of energy rip across the ground, damaging anyone foolish enough to stay in its path, even after its done. As time goes on, the titans get closer and closer, more and more attacks are unleashed, until they break into the area the players in and wipe the slate clean. An instant wipe, including Yogg. Sure people would complain that they only get one shot, but thats the only way it would truelly be hard.
