Well, since they're trying to bring back the old school system of gearing up in blue "sets" before going into epics... I think people will use the regular difficulty to get basic gear and to learn encounters. Doing regulars seems like it will be part of the natural progression. Regulars cannot possibly be that hard.Personally, I like that. It will encourage people to guild up to do stuff! BC was fun because you COULD get really good gear with heroics, but at the cost of difficulty. Remember Heroic Shattered Halls/Durnhold with a bad CC? I do, oh god I do. But that was FUN!

I was on Vent when a group of guildies in Beta hit Stonecore at 83. From what I heard: it's that hard.

No it's not. The only hard part of regular dungeons is, as the OP said, learning encounters. If you have problems beyond that then you suck, badly.

I tanked stonecore at 82 with a lfd pug. We wiped on the milhouse trash packs a couple times because I was the only one interrupting. Everything else in the instance is a joke. The healer died halfway through the drake boss and the final boss (standing in fire) but we avoided wiping through judicious use of cooldowns and offspec healing.

Standing in the fire? For crying out loud have people not learned not to do that yet? I mean it's only been happening since way back in vanilla!

@mattThere will always be fire/void zones/red stuff/ etc. From Blizz's perspective, 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' players are always gonna die to stuff on the floor.
