I just love the amount of complaining that the new Onyxia raid is getting from people, many of whom probably ask on the forums once a month for revamped old content. The New and Improved Onyxia isn't a progression raid. It's not supposed to be a cockblock boss fight to gear you out before you move on to Icecrown. Blizz probably thought, "How are we going to celebrate our fifth year of WoW? How about we update one of the most memorable raids in the game to lvl80 standards, update the loot a bit, and let the veterans relish in the nostalgia while we introduce a classic, iconic boss to the newer players?" That's why this is getting released in Patch 3.2.2. It's not the cornerstone of a major content patch, and it's not supposed to be the pitstop on the way to Icecrown. It's a gift from Blizz back to the fans of the game.Some people might complain, Blizz, but not everyone is bitching about it. I've got a Paladin friend who nearly wet himself at the thought of getting his hands on an updated T2 helm, and another friend was really big into raiding back in vanilla and has been practically refreshing this sit every hour to see if a patch 3.2.2 release date has been announced. I never raided back in Vanilla, and only did Ony with two other eighties a few months ago, but she was my first TCG raid, and the one that got me curious about the MMO. So there's at least SOME of us who are excited about this.

I'd love to see the old T2 paladin set fully updated with 80 ret stats (and not a recolor like the heroic healing set in BC). My pally wants!For reference: http://www.wowhead.com/?itemset=217

Onyxia... though you have killed me more times than Hogger, and likely will continue to do so, I will always love you.I agree completely. This is a gift to the players from the generally player-desire-ignorant devs.
