Hmm, a day late here, but just wanted to chime in since I didn't see this yesterday.I really don't see 25man raids dieing. Sure, for raid leaders, the easy route is 10man. But honestly, I have a better chance at the loot I want in 25 due to their change. Right now 25 offers the loot I want because it's better. In cata 25 will offer the loot I want because it's more frequent. Once the various raids get played enough that I have what I want, then I can see wanting to do 10man just for expedience.Also with the lockouts, once you decide to 25 man and find a consistent group, the lockouts prevent you from doing 10s, so you really don't have to worry about how the raids look in 10 as you will not be doing them most of the time.It sounds like the epic feel is from the whole group setting, but because you could enter with fewer people, it cheapened the experience because your mind just can't get beyond "well you only need a few people to beat this boss" and not "I am beating a weakened version because I can only get these few noobs". The fact that it's the Lich King at 10 and it's the Lich King at 25... same person right? When no, no it isn't.Also, Wraths big bad was a man in fancy armor. It wasn't a big demon or dragon or other monster. They did the best they could to not seem stupid, but still, technically Tirion and Arthas should have been the size of your character.... and 25 people are supposed to be beating on him without hitting friendlies and looking dumb?Cata is about a big dragon again and elementals, so the encounters should be big again. Hopefully that will bring back some of the epic you describe.
