In addition to being handed 365 gear from daily quests and 359 gear from heroics, it seems a bit strange that they'd tab on additional nerfs. Especially nerfs [i]this[/i] drastic. Things like Chimaeron, Nefarian, and Al'Akir's nerfs are a bit ridiculous. They're removing major elements from the fights.Obviously they're reaching out to the population of WoW players that are struggling to complete normal mode Tier-11, but what's going to happen after they do? They're just going to go up to Firelands and get hit by a brick wall? I'm also worried what this actually means for Firelands - who are they tuning the content for? Are they expecting those who kill Nefarian for the first time after 4.2 to be able to succeed in Firelands?The problem with nerfs this drastic is that it accelerates people into content that they're simply not ready for. Congratz, you killed Al'Akir for the first time after 4.2, and you've got your "Defender of the Shattered World" title. Does this player have even a remote chance at succeeding in Firelands? If yes, then Firelands is way too undertuned. If no, then why are you throwing them into a brick wall?
