I know several that are quitting the game in the high end guilds. The main thing is fighting hard mode bosses is not the same as working your way through instances like naxx(40 man) or Black temple, or even Kara as a high end guild.When you do a hard mode, you are not learning a new fight. Your simply doing the same fight with new restrictions. What fun is that? I don't understand why people want to walk through content with no challenge. Have you ever downed a boss after wiping on him for weeks? It's a great feeling of accomplishment.Right now, my guild has cleared Ulduar with no hard modes, and downed X002, Iron Council, Hodir, and Freya(2 trees) in their hard modes. Yet, I feel we've accomplished almost nothing, as we havn't really worked hard for most of it.

"Really, you enjoy wiping on the same boss for a week straight? Then when you got lucky and beat him 1 out of 70 time (since you are hard core I am assuming you wiped 10 times a day 7 days a week) that it gave you great satisfaction"Not to be a dick but i agree with lifefire, if you put the time and effort into a boss, take my guild trying to get mimiron down for the past 3 raid nights, finally got him friday night and everyone were happy clappy chappys... But Gothia you sound like you have your epics handed to you so why take it out on others?

"I don't understand why people want to walk through content with no challenge."This is irrelevant. People's tastes differ. I don't understand why a lot of people enjoy the things they do. But I do understand that they do, despite the fact that I wouldn't enjoy the same thing.The mature attitude to, "to each their own." If person A likes to play one way and person B likes to play another way, let them both play the way they like, and cater to both tastes as much as you can.The immature attitude is to say, "this is the RIGHT way," (invariably the way THEY prefer), and insist that everyone should be forced to play that way; not let others even have the option to do things differently. "This is the most enjoyable way to play, so Blizzard should make that mandatory." (If you think "the most enjoyable way to play" is a truth for everyone, rather than just a truth for you, you think you're the center of the universe. Alas, that kind of childish attitude is the most common one. You can tell me what you find to be the most enjoyable way to play, but you can't tell me what IS the most enjoyable way to play, as if there was an objective fact of the matter on that.)

In response to Artificial,Really, the problem isn't with those who wish to go through easy content. Back in the old system they had a place to do just that. In the old model content was divided up into easy, medium and hard areas. When new content was introduced it became the new hard, and the medium and easy content got moved up through nerfs of that content.example:Kara, Gruul's Lair - Easy SSC, TK - MediumHyjal, BT - hardWhen the Sunwell was reached it changed to:Kara, Gruul's Lair, SSC, TK - EasyHyjal, BT - MediumSunwell - HardThis was done by nerfing several boss fights and removing the attunements on the instances.Those who wanted easy content, had access to it. Eventually, you would be able to see all of the new content. Some may argue that once wotlk came out the guilds doing medium and easy would not be able to see sunwell. This is incorrect. at 80 you are free to go back and see the old content in an easier setting.My problem is that now with the new content, there is no longer a place for people like me.
