I don't know. Maybe I'm just underestimating the skill level of my guild, but I really don't see what is so challenging about most of the normal mode content that it needs to be nerfed this heavily in order for guilds to get past the first boss. And before someone accuses me of "having no life" or "raiding 60 hours a week", we raid 3 nights a week for a total of 10-11 hours. Less usually since we don't actually start trash until a good half hour into raid time most nights. I wish they weren't nerfing hard modes. We could have had H-Alysrazor with another night or so and been 4/7 Heroic.

10-11 hours a week is at least 2x what the "normal' raider does, I would say.

Hmm. Depends what "normal" means. :)I do 2 nights a week, 3 hours a night. So 6-7 hours, max.

That doesn't mean they play less tho, people can raid 5 hours and play a lot more than people that raid 10h with alts and other stuff. Raiding more can make you play less, consumables are now easily aquired for free in a guild and they aren't really nescessary for normal modes (my guild killed rag without flasks the first time due to us not having times for more than 1 attempt). In addition, you will actually spend less time with the zulroics time sink. On the other hand, if you have a bad raid group, you will add the wipe times with zulroics, what can be really bad for your RL.So, it's very well worth it to get in a stablished guild and be raiding 10-11 hours the first couple of weeks of a patch and then 5 hours when everything is on farm then keep doing zulroics over and over. All it requires is a initial effort to learn your class and game mechanics.
