Wasn't the addition of Emblems of Triumph to the heroic dailies Blizzard's way of getting people to run heroic 5-mans after they had outgeared them? Does this mean that Blizzard wants people running old raids too? Why? What could raiders possibly gain from running old raids? And since these are all early bosses, that means that alts who go on these runs won't have much of a chance for gear, thus defeating that purpose. I'm sorry, I know I will be down rated for this, but I don't like this change. Blizzard is taking this "go back and run old content" thing too far.And yes, I know this isn't a mandatory thing, but if Blizzard's motivation is to get people running raids they have already surpassed, as it was with the Emblem of Triumph change, then I think they are taking this too far. Heroic 5-mans take no time at all and can be PUGed in your own time, but raids take more organization than that. Quests like these almost trivialize raids, and even as a casual player, that's not something I like. I know I'm not being very clear with my argument, but I just think this is an unnecessary addition. I hope Blizzard comes out soon with some sort of justification for these quests; I won't simply accept, "What? You mean you don't want easy tier 10 emblems?"The worst part is, after patch 3.3 comes out, I know I'll be doing these quests. Le sigh.

I think this is a final stitch effort to get people to see the raid content and get the most out of it.Honestly, it's not a bad idea. In a few months, the raid content we have now will not be viable anymore...it'll go the way of Black Temple and Sunwell...just being an achievement run on weekends. And even as a T9-geared Hunter with a T8-area Warrior, I still like Naxx and wouldn't mind playing through it again, if not just for kicks.I know, I'm probably in the minority, but I think it's a good way to bring some life back to Naxx and Malygos and such.
