I have a question. I'm sure the answer to this can only really be speculation, but here goes: I am a player who absolutely loves the lore of the game- I read the Warcraft books and have loved following the stories of the games from Warcraft I. While WoW offers an amazing chance to experience the lore, the fact that I have never raided and not sure if I'll have the time once I reach cap (though I hope so), I am forced to miss out on many huge lore moments. While I would love the experience of fighting Illidan or taking on Arthas, I have never been able to do it, and now that everyone has moved on to Cata stuff, I fear I will never get the chance. While I would love the opportunity to go for all the great gear and achievements that raids have to offer, I really just want the experience of getting to see these fights and be a part of them. My question is this: do you think Blizzard will ever make it so their raids (particularly the older ones from vanilla and BC) are toned down to a 5-man mode (separate from the raid itself), just for players who really want to be a part of the fights and the lore of the game? This way, it would make it easier to get a group together and take on these massive lore characters without the need to get a giant raid together and spend hours doing it. I'm not against raiding, I think it's cool as hell, I just want a chance to get to "live" the lore a bit.
