They've pretty much killed the fun in raiding, since wrath.No longer is there a great feeling of accomplishment when a boss dies, or you see a player decked out in endgame tier.Everyone has it, and even those of us sporting dragonslayer titles back in March, in the latest teir, it just didn't feel the same as even killing Leo, least of all vash and kael.Now everyone looks the same, the gear is on vendors, the progression of attunements is gone, miss a tier? np just farm some heroics, hit the ah, and vendor, bam you are now "endgame" again.The wrath babies will say there is nothing wrong with this, but believe me, something is missing and its the soul of the game. That started slipping away the moment they created badge gear in sunwell. (no the t4ish resist gear that was the majority of TBC's badge gear was pretty worthless sans an item or two) This isn't the game we all were recruited from EQ top guilds to play. And yes, I feel a sense of entitlement and disillusion with what blizz has done. They singlehandedly killed off what MMO's were in favor of a generic counsel game. It's gone now, the ultima's and EQ's are no more, the vanilla wow is no more. The kiddies starting playing the genre don't even know what it was and think they are playing and MMO.

"They've pretty much killed the fun in raiding, since wrath."Sorry, but I couldn't take you seriously after that statement.

Thankfully, Blizzard doesn't have the same elitist attitude as you. There are 11 million players that Blizzard has to take into account - not just the ones who think they're better than everyone else.

Perhaps it is just you with the loss of feeling accomplished? I'm an old EQ raider. I know the rush of excitement in bringing down a boss (CT or Inny? Yes please). My guild just downed Nef last night, first time. Rush was still there.

realitycheck - from your comment I doubt you raided in TBC, and you certainally did not lead a guild. If you had you would realise how total BS your comment it. You clearly have no idea how annoying it was to have to gaer a player up, get attunements and stuff before you could even get them into your progression raid. And with 90%+ of people not raiding, the recruitment pool for endgame later teir raids was tiny.No. Easy access to raids is a godsend from Bliz, and only elitist pricks who measure their self worth by their epeen think otherwise.
