10- and 25-player (normal difficulty) -- Very similar to one another in difficulty; drop the exact same items as each other. Win.

i like their intention to get rid of the disparity in item quality, but i'm on the fence on this to be honest. the trade off with having a lower ilvl gear was that i got to experience the content with a smaller group of friends and just have fun with it, while keeping 25man progression separate. with this i'll effectively be only able to have fun on the smaller scale with an alt...if that particular toon even stays with 10man (the downside of a priest alt...they're always needed somewhere). that in and of itself isn't a terrible option, but i just liked having the option to choose for my main and my alts.

/agreeFull time job, night classes, and fiance means I only get to pug these days. And unless it's Ony, OS, or VoA, it's hard to consistantly get into a 25m run.So, for me, this is epic win!

@ FatamorganaI agree completely. Multiple shorter raids, 1 lockout, and Blizzard has mentioned before that they like the idea of moving toward weekly quests instead of dailies. I like playing WoW just as much as anyone, but with a busy schedule the pressure to play every day and for long sessions is really a killer. I'd like to be able to step away for a few days and not feel like I'm missing out.

My question is: do they drop the exact same achievements as each other? I don't want to have to lock myself out of 25s for a week and join a 10s, or the opposite, just so I can get [Make Quick Werk of Him 2.0! (10 man version)].

I don't really know what to think about this change. It's nice if we don't get to run the same instance two times a week, but only if Blizzard can provide more content then they did in WotLK. I have a hard time believing that, no matter what Blizzard says. WoW have lost a lot of good people to SC and Diablo, and with their new master Activision they too seem to be focused on delivering as little content as possible for a maximum profit, like selling a mount for the same price as a expansion.I dunno, after all the bad changes in WotLK which Blizzard think is a success, I don't think we're gonna get a better game as time will pass. They clearly want something else with this game then what I'm after.
