I couldn't agree more. Nothing is more rewarding than downing a boss for the first time after several weeks worth of tries (RoS, Council, Illidan, Brutallus come to mind).Hard modes are *not* content, as many before me have stated - and that's why current raiding is simply boring.And please, spare me this "rose tinted glasses" crap.

Baal80:Your unfortunately in the minority as the majority don't take much enjoyment from spending 3 hours wiping on the same boss. I enjoy the hard mode challenges, they mean having to learn the fight in a different and more challenging way.

Changes are extremely good that you are nowhere near clearing current raid content regularly enough for it to be "boring".

Yeah, the old way wiping for a month on the same boss is over. The hardcore minority can leave the game.That will leave, what... 10.5 million of the rest of us?I don't even raid anymore. My time commitments don't allow even a 4 hour session. The fact that I still have fun stuff to do means WoW will survive.Besides, if the new raids were structured that way, no one would complete them before the next content release. Whats the fun in that? The new stuff is designed to be completed within the first 6 weeks, on farm for the next 12 weeks, 'Oh Look, new raids!'. Rinse repeat.

Masarah:"Your unfortunately in the minority "Source? And even if this is correct, the minority (which I think is bigger than you think) pay their monthly fees too. Every majority consists of minorities if you break them down in details, this ignoring every minority means ignoring everyone eventually.Candinah:"I don't even raid anymore"So, your point is that raids are better and more fun now - yet continue to confirm what the OP was saying, that many stop raiding.

@karoneya:The source is Blizz. They have stated a couple of times after BC that they felt too many hours of development went into end-game content when offset against the number of players that was actually able to experience said content.Personally I enjoy being able to have access to different levels of difficulty to choose from when it comes to dungeons and raids. Having said that, I don't believe there is much sense in trying to convince each other that WotLK is or is not an improvement over BC / Vanilla WoW. It feels like telling someone who doesn't like the taste of bananas that they actually should like bananas because I think they do taste good.Those who feel raiding has been 'nerfed' or 'broken', I just hope you find new ways to keep enjoying the game :).
