Keep in mind that, "10 man is harder than 25 man," held true for most of WotLK. After having run 10 man ICC on Tuesday and then 25 man ICC tonight (Thursday,) I'm going to go ahead and say that it is not entirely accurate for the new raid instance.10 man being harder, but getting lesser gear, was a huge complaint for many players, and it felt tonight like they took those complaints to heart and did something about it.Trash was much easier for us tonight, but the bosses were not. The number of people present was increased, but so were the challenges - not just boss HP and swing damage, but entire encounters. At least half of the people present for 25 man had already experienced a 10 or 25 man version of the instance already, so it's not like we were failing purely due to lack of experience (though that was certainly the case for some of us).10 was a pleasantly new experience, but disappointingly easy for our make up that night to conquer. 25 was a less new experience, aside from the face planting. That was new. And while it's never fun to spend money on repairs, finding encounters that ARE a challenge is definitely satisfying. Though if we don't ramp it up next raid night, I might start throwing fits.
