I don't know about the rest of my guild, but I never went to the Ony raid in Vanilla WoW. In BC, I recall going with a group of 14 other people, levels ranging from 63-70, ONCE to kill Onyxia.My opinion of this is that she was a pushover. With just that little bit of experience I had no problem at all in our 25 and 10 man groups last night. 25 and 10-man Onyxia both were very easy for us - as in, we 1-shot both, and we had very few, if any deaths [I believe one or two died in 25m and none died in 10m]. 10-man, we 2-healed it. These are people who are geared fairly well and are used to working together, who have a little bit of common sense and actually take the time to read up on [and understand] how the encounter goes.If you are in a poorly geared group, you could have problems.If a few people do not know the encounter, you could have problems.If both are true, you absolutely WILL have problems.Know the encounter and don't expect a cakewalk going into it if there is any doubt over your gear, skill, or cohesion as a team. Read the strategy, because if you don't know WTF to do, it could be 50 DKP minus. Kick people who screw up if you actually have a problem wiping on this, and as my raid leader says: "If you aren't a baller, don't try baller moves." Stick to the plan, stick to your role.I did find that there were some things that were factually inaccurate. As melee, I could not attack Onyxia when she was in the air [I had read that you could]. I kept trying to find the "sweet spot" under her. After trying to attack her [unsuccessfully] from the same spot that a hunter pet was trained on her I decided to put my efforts elsewhere. Despite this setback, I still pulled over 6k DPS. I reiterate: she seemed a pushover.
