Hah, you can see how many old school players WoW has by these comments. Heigan the Unclean? Blood Beasts on Saurfang is tense? How long are you playing? 3 months?

LOL I think many people just don't remember the oldest content being as tense as it was at the time, since they outgeared it for so long, and probably haven't even run it in a long time.I mentioned Ragnaros in my comment below. Heh

Raiding is a lot more common in Wrath. These people could have been playing since Vanilla but never raided until now or raided in a very limited way.

Hey now, I raided plenty in vanilla and I'm sorry, the only "tense" moments in vanilla were when you were just about to down the boss for the first few times. I still remember the whooping and cheering on Vent when we downed Rag for the first time. After that though? Not tense in the least. It was just getting over that initial hurdle, every decently difficult boss is tense the first few times you kill it. The really tough ones continue to stay tense even after being labeled "farm".Contrarily, we've been killing Putri for months and he STILL makes me sit up and pay attention in p3.

Tension is one of those emotion that fades with memory - it's an immediate, visceral thing. Those far-off encounters probably felt more tense than my first steps into Icecrown, but all I can remember now for pre-Wrath are the feelings of relief when I won an encounter we'd been beating our heads against. I eagerly anticipate losing some of my memories of the poo joke wing.
