Wow, ilunc, you must have been a superb player, then. Because I remember the dungeons being somewhat difficult, and I remember when it was nigh on impossible to find groups for certain heroics because they were difficult for people to do. Seriously. Right now the heroics are laughable because everyone outgears them, and I imagine that the people who jumped right into raiding at the beginning of Wrath probably feel that they were *always* easy because they didn't really have to spend that much time grinding them, but you know what? I remember that even in my Naxx-25 geared guild, we had to actually pay attention in heroics like Old Kingdom. We generally didn't wipe, but they still required that we paid attention and play our characters competently, which I don't call "easy"Honestly, I can't help but think that every time one of us tries to point out that Wrath Heroics were moderately difficult when Wrath launched that someone always comes in to say "Nope, always easy, I never had any problems" just to stroke their own epeen and reassure themselves that their RAGE at Blizzard is well-founded and that everyone else is a scrub.And seriously. If you never had problems because you were a good player running with other good players, that's great. But please, try to have some perspective and recognize that not everyone playing is you, and that what you think of as "easy" might actually be difficult to someone else. For example, I think that getting out of the fire is easy- but for my legally blind mother-in-law who has to play on a huge screen that she STILL squints at, it's a lot more difficult. I imagine WoW seems pretty easy to a person who's been playing video games since they were six, but people have different levels of abilities and for some, it takes a little longer to learn. I imagine there are a lot more of THOSE people playing WoW than those of us who find the trials of raiding "easy," and I imagine that Blizzard will be going by what's difficult for the majority of people, not what's difficult for the "raiding elite" or whatever you want to call it.
