Actually this is kind of tangential, but your thoughts made me think my thoughts, and "Look! A comment system" so here we go.I think there should be a 'normal' tier of content (dungeons and raids), and an heroic tier of content (dungeons and raids), and that the casual player need never set foot in an heroic anything to progress through the 'normal' tier.Basically, as it stands now, the expectation is that everyone runs heroic dungeons: that they are 'casual' content. Which basically means that hardly anyone runs normal dungeons. At the start of this expansion they tried to make heroic dungeons more 'heroic', but then drowned in an ocean of QQ, so they nerfed 'em. But the main reason why everyone demands access to heroic dungeons (ie. faceroll heroics) is because they are necessary to gear up for raiding.But what if you could gear up for normal raiding by running normal dungeons? This would leave the heroic dungeons for the more 'hardcore' players. That way you might actually have 5 man content that isn't trivial - by this I mean: content that you have to research a little to learn the strat, and that requires CC and kill order etc.It's dumb that normal dungeons are only flirted with on the way to the heroic dungeon grind. Remove the need for the casual player to enter heroic dungeons, then you could actually make dungeons 'heroic'.
