@SorchaOn the one hand I'm happy for you if you managed to cake walk Naxx in Sunwell gear. Grats! On the other, if you found all the mechanics you listed (which I kind off took to be ALL the Naxx moves) no challenge at all then you must be really bored playing and I wonder why you do or did. And do note I said tough enough not tough. However, I didn't find it as easy as that. Nor did my guild. Nor did any of the similar guilds to ours I can think of. Was it super hard? No. Should it have been super hard? No. It was an entry level raid and it was tough enough.I loved raiding Naxx with my guild. In fact perhaps beacause we weren't super pro raiders it was more fun. Naxx was a time to gear up, a time to wrestle with rusty-from-levelling concepts like hit caps and defence rating and a time for new raiders to learn the ropes. It was where I learned how to react when stuff went wrong because someone in the group screwed up.And, given it was the first raid of Wrath (and granted I never saw it the first time round - there's a point in there somewhere) when we got confident on a boss I could still quite hapilly suspend my disbelief with an OH MY GOD IM FIGHTING A GIANT SPIDER!!!!Now I know my first para sounds like I'm having a go but I'm really not (well not much). I just think that if you are that rare species of uber raider then I do mean the grats. I can't do it. I have neither the time nor the skills. The thing is, I think there are an aweful lot of people like me. We love the challenge to us and we love the story and what we really love is the weird mix of WE JUST KILLED THE BAD GUY!!! and the new shinies he dropped. Naxx was for us. And importantly Naxx HAD to be for us. It was the best (and perhaps only) to kickstart the raiding population for Wrath.I know that with all these things it tends to be those with a negative experience that speak up and that's fair enough, but it's nice to speak up once in a while for the things you like. And I liked Wrath. Pretty much all of it.
