I'm with Ghostcrawler on this. Heroics should be wicked hard. No one should EVER be able overgear heroic content, most groups should wipe 90% of the time and the best groups/guilds only wipe 60/70% of the time. People rise to what is expected of them.

I don't think that is what GC is saying, nor do I think it makes any sense. I agree that heroics should be difficult... That's why they're "heroic". But the idea that a pug should be 90% unsuccessful and a guild group with coordination and gear should be 60% unsuccessful is just outrageous. Heroics are a stepping stone to raids, and not end game content in and of themselves. They should be difficult enough that they are challenging while still being relatively accessible to a group willing to coordinate and execute the proper mechanics... And I think that's what GC is saying and what theyre aiming for.

Really? You want to wipe 60% of the time even if you know the fights, are over-geared, and well-prepared? The only way to make that happen would be to make the fights stupidly random and unfair.Surely you were joking. Otherwise, you need to quit right now before Blizzard gets any ideas from you.

Pretty sure you guys both just missed sarcasm/trolling. :pI don't think either of the statements in the OP's comment are true: I don't think that people in heroics are wiping 90% of the time, and the best guilds are *definitely* not wiping in heroics 60% of the time; these things are not at all based on luck. (I wouldn't be surprised to find that Paragon players are able to blow through heroics in 20 minutes -- both gear and skill can let you overcome a lot of what makes heroics hard.)
