I'm pretty sure you only need one person flagged to start the heroic raids. Have fun though, this time heroic means something.

seriously, the learning curve between normal and heroic is a bit brutal. We finished our 10 man trial, and figured, 'let's give heroic a go!'. Didn't read much on it, just went in. There were the obvious things, like everything hits harder and has more hp... And then there were the more inobvious things, like the fire you don't stand in is now a dot, and if you don't kill the first guy in 3 minutes or so, the worms join the fray anyway. We're a solid group, but that was pretty intimidating, and we decided to come back after we'd researched it a bit more. But I will say, the collective 'wtf!' that came when we thought we had things under control, and suddenly the doors opened and those worms slithered in, was priceless. :)

Yeah, heroic ain't a joke.

We did that today, after a quick half an hour clean clear of normal, we went to heroic, and got completely massacred. You can only do heroic if you're on the ball.On a side note, I'm a little disappointed at how much of a face roll normal 10 man was.

I really think this is a great way to do it. It lets everyone see the content and get some gear and the people who really want a challenge and the people who are going to be challenged have a solid and difficult heroic mode. The people crying that 10man was done perfect in a couple of days really make me laugh because they're gonna be the people like us who go in and are shocked and have to work at it. If the #1 ace guilds can't beat it then we have absolutely no shot. Also we see that Blizzard isn't afraid to put ultra-high level fights in like yogg0. Raiding has never been better.

You arent joking about hard. Our 25 man has some of the easier ulduar hard modes down. Ignis speed kill a couple speed kills on hodir, and xt.

Whether this says more about the Ulduar10 Hard Modes or the ToC ones, I have no clue. Coming from a guild that has done every Uld10 Hard Mode multiple times (at least the ones on the meta, not Yogg0 or Alg226), we got face-raped by the Beasts in ToC10 Hard.I'm pretty sure thats the way it ought to be. The top teir of guilds didnt have a problem and those at least above average should struggle some at the begining, but down it. But given Blizzard's current view on things, do we want to take bets on when the nerfs start? i give it 3 weeks.
