If there's one complaint I have, it's that ICC feels too easy on 10-man. Our 25-man group is being decently challenged by the bosses after Marrowgar, but our 10-man group blazed through with only one wipe max each boss (None on Marrowgar or Deathwhisper), as we learned the fights.Deathwhisper especially feels so stripped down on 10-man that the fight becomes a non-issue. There are so many things she does on 25-man that she simply doesn't in 10s, after you kill her, it's almost hard to believe she was a boss at all.

In regards to ICC 10 being too easy... Since you mentioned that you're also in a 25man group, you're probably overgeared for it. ICC 10 was balanced around players that have ilevel 232 gear. If you're wearing gear you obtained in ToC25 or ToGC25, then no wonder it's easy! If you're already going into it with ilevel 232 gear then I apologize, but I find this is the most common explanation.

Actually, ICC 10 would (I hope) be tuned for players in largely 245 gear - the togc10 stuff. A good 10 man guild should have been farming togc 10 for weeks and would be pretty decked out in it. As far as 245 goes, a very strict 10 man would miss out on the 9.25 pieces, but they should still have access to a ton of 245 gear.I mean, your comment probably holds true. He would be overgeared if he's in TOGC 258. But ilvl 245 isn't overgeared for a 10 man.And I am wearing mostly 245 gear and in a 10 man guild... I really hope ICC is a challenge when I hit it tonight.

Yeah, ICC 10 isn't too difficult for our 10-person group, mostly because we've been running Heroic ToC 10 and have a lot of 245 gear. We were expecting the real challenge to come from the heroic boss fights, anyway.
