I completed the Dreadstead quest for my warlock at 60, before BC. The final part, in DM was an epically fun fight. I'm glad I got a chance to do it at 60. During BC, my then 70 warlock ran close to a dozen people thru DM to get their mount. It was still interesting, but my warlock could basically solo the entire thing. It really didn't require any talent or a group. Just a warlock with the mats. At 80, it would be a joke. It is nearly impossible to get a group together for most lower level instances (yes, 60 is lower level). Completing the quest in DM would today usually just involve someone running you thru the instance which would take what, 20 minutes? It makes the quest and its epic feel completely irrelevant. It is not dumbing down the content. We have simply left this content behind. It only makes sense to let it be trainable.

I agree, and feel like another point should be made.Just because we're leaving behind some of this epic content, doesn't mean that there is none left in the game. Instead of running DM to get the warlock his mount, today we have complete the "hard mode" of heroic CoS to get the drake mount at the end, or down 3D Sarth for the mount there, etc.Everytime we leave behind yesterday's epic content, its because we've opened up something new explore and strive for.

I hit 60 on my lock a month or so before BC was going to come out, and i tried every time i played to get a group together to do the quest. Didn't happen. I ended up at the stage where i had to go to DM and just couldn't complete it, had all the items and such, just not a guild or people wanting to do it. What i did do was just cave and spend the money to get the regular mount training. These kinds of quests are okay when you can actually do them, or find groups for them, but when it's a hassle it's not epic or whatever, it's annoying.
