Definitely the B-team.Vanilla WoW was pretty cool in its content, save the ridiculous time investment needed to get to 60 (and the ridiculous investment needed to start raiding). The end game raids were kinda fun back then. The worst part about it was having 40 people talk over TS at once, getting them all online at the same time, and generally having to deal with 30 mins of setup for 5 mins of gameplay (haha, buffing joke).Now? You can just blitzkrieg content. Trash can be cleared faster than you can say, "trash mobs are supposed to be important." Homogenization of gear has made purples go from "OMFG YES, FINALLY!" status to "alright, next boss."Don't get me wrong, WotLK is a better product than vanilla. Vanilla was still far more fun, though. Wanna know why? More rewarding. As the old adage goes, "risk versus reward," vanilla raid content was far more riskier, and it was much more rewarding because of it. Because you can steamroll WotLK content, a lot of the "reward" isn't so rewarding because its really, really easy. Even hard modes, which are indeed more of a challenge, aren't as rewarding because everything up to that is still piss easy.WotLK is better, but not perfect.

Naxx trash is nothing special, but the Ulduar trash... some of the Ulduar trash is pretty intense. Frigging Faceless Horrors...
