I just dont understand the seemingly constant complaint that WoTLK was too easy. Yes, by the end of the cycle lower level raids and especially heroics (indeed heroics by fairly early on) became trivialised but that wasn't because they were too easy. It was because our gear had had so many tier increases by this point. Heroics in il200 were tough. Naxx was tough enough and Ulduar many guilds didnt realy see because as they were hitting it ToC came out. Of course if you had time to gear fully through heroics then naxx 10 into naxx 25 into uld 10 into uld 25 into hardmodes then ok, i guess it might have been slightly easier. But for the even remotely casual guilds out there that wasnt possible as they simply didnt have the time. And sure everyone cleared ToC but a lot didn't on hard mode.We raid three nights a week pretty much without fail, we have a dedicated 10 man team with the odd piece of 25 gear dotted about. We downed the LK about 6 weeks ago and are now working on hardmodes.Isnt that how it should be? Fairly dedicated casual guilds reach the end of regular content with a few months to have a crack at the hard modes with the realisation that they are probably beyond them before the expansion?Of course if you raid five times a week, five hours a night then shouldn't you have completed pretty much everything by now and be a bit bored? Isn't that how it should be? If people raiding that hard hadn't finished all hardmode content then who was that content for? And let's not forget how few guilds out there have done HLK.The one thing I WOULD suggest is some other way of grinding your badges. The gear scaling did destroy heroics and that did suck. It seems that Blizz are on this anyway with the proposed caps.TL;DR Over all, from a dedicated but casual raider's perspective, Wrath rocked.
