I don't personally think that Wrath being 'easy' means you could just look away and faceroll your keyboard. what it DOES mean is that it was mostly about beating the CD. In BC, I enjoyed looking at a mob pull on my tank, figuring out the best way to pull them, mark the targets for CC (or 2nd kill, etc.) use LoS pulls to bring in casters, etc. Dps taht couldn't figure out how to wait to spam skills (seriously, how hard is it to count to 10 before hitting something? or wait till the adds come around the corner?) in Wrath, I just charge up to the mob pack and spam AoE skills. Seriously. there's not much to it. At a heroic level, it didnt' matter which ksy i hit first, be it thunderclap, or shockwave, or cleave...i just hit em all. harder heroics make me wish my AoE CD's were shorter. that's it. it's all still mind numbing race to you AoE buttons. Very sad IMO.Raids added the element of jumping around. Now you had to avoid the fire. hop over an acid pool. and then spam AoE buttons. Gone are the days that i targeted specific mobs and cycled through them to add threat to specific targets, or marked things like it mattered. It didn't' matter. THAT'S what they are talking about. the other sad part of of current instances is the lack of communication. New runs are tough on peeps because everyone expects you to simply know it, when half of them don't know it themselves, and won't speak up if they don't. And that doesn't even matter, as long as the tank spams their AoE threat skills. It speaks something when you can run an instance not knowing jack squat about it, as long as everyone spams their AoE skills (all 3 of them if they're really good).Prior to wrath, instance runs took enough organization that folks needed to COMMUNICATE (I know. heaven forbid, talk to your group members.) I've had nights of a half dozen or more heroic runs where NO ONE EVEN TALKS. why even run with a group at that point? I remember the end of one of those runs where someone said 'thanks all" and it was shocking, as that last few runs no one even said that as they left group once it was done. not even a kiss the next morning *sniff*In Wrath you still have to watch things in later difficulties. But in all honesty, its all about spamming stuff. In raids, my holy pally pretty much spams one heal non stop. its a damage race, nothing more. their forcing us to go beyond that, which is good IMO. now i just need to find those other skills...ya know, the not-AoE-ones, whatever they're called...
