Anyone else remember the good old days when AQ first openned? Pug groups formed to go in a take a look at AQ20 and no one could get past the first trash duo. Even after we had downed them a few times, if we didn't have a druid in the group, we headed to ZG instead because without roots, those big guys were impossible. Now THAT was real trash. Trash that had to be CC'd, that's what I miss. Right now it is pull everything, everyone AoE and we win. Bring CC back and I will be happy. Shattered Halls without CC....unless you had a topped out group with a pally tank, that place was terrible.

I miss the Anubisath, in particular, the Sentinels. Blizz, please bring back challenging trash in Icecrown! Give people a workout in their knowledge of their class. don't downvote me, but honestly, I miss encounters where you need specific classes, or just specific abilities like CC. We have it, so please make us use it!

Replying to the top poster just to say this because it needs to be heard:We are getting Heroic SFK & VC in Cata, so the awesome trash is BACK!!!I mean come on, what felt more awesome than: Arugal must Die!, going in to the instance to kill him, just to see him standing over a murdered deathstalker.You not only wanted him dead for all the freaking werewolves he's let loose on the place, now it was personal.So you would climb his evil old tower (with really good, actual raiding-style music btw) and fight off a whole mess of wolves, worgen and ghosts that haunt the castle.You don't get more epic than that, and I don't know the amount of times as a lowbie I've downed the ghost paladin boss, only to be sorting out the loot while everyone continues, just to get instagibbed with the werewolf pack comes running in the room behind you, that has physically scared me on several occasions. ^_^And lastly, deadmines, the perilous smelting room with the careful pulls, the tight corners filled with loads of weakling miners and strong defias, and the pack of ALL-STAR trash that spawns behind you and comes after you whenever you down a boss?Its things like that and the werewolf pack in SFK that makes an instance feel alive, with the mobs adapting and changing as you progressed. (Although they did the same thing every run, it still wasn't generic)I'm hoping we'll be seeing a lot more "Avast ye swabs, we're under attack, repel the invaders!!"

I dream of a WoW where my hunter is asked whether he can trap rather than what his gear is when pugging 10 man Naxx because the group wants to faceroll everything as tank 'n' spank.
