I've been consistently surprised at how hard the Cataclysm content is considered. I'm no Heroic raider, nor have I progressed very quickly through Normal content, but progression has been consistent. We downed Staghelm last week. Progression in the last tier was fairly similar. I've never felt it was overtuned, it always seemed like a good difficulty. Not super hard, not super easy, somewhere in the middle. Difficulty is obviously a pretty fluid concept.I don't really resent the nerfs, nor necessarily think they are unnecessary. I more...mourn them. I can't help but feel disappointed and sad. I personally don't feel like a hero when the fights are so easy that a group that has never seen them and knows nothing about them can one-shot them. Again, that's obviously an individual thing.I personally know several people on my server and friends on others that have cleared beyond normal Ragnaros already. (I'm not one of them.) I've never thought that all video games are for everyone, just like not all sports or chess or sudoku board games or other leisure activities are for everyone. I don't really intend it as elitism, I'm certainly not among the "video game elite" (which yes does sound silly). It's hard to describe. I guess...as silly as it sounds for a video game, I still expect people to take pride in what they do. True, "it's not worth it" if it's too hard. It's also not worth it if it's too easy./sigh Oh well. I feel like this is more of a brick wall than any raid boss ever has been. I'm not trying to denigrate anyone. That's not something I do. Well, if Blizzard keeps up a similar difficulty theme for raids, I suppose it'll work out best for everyone.
