i've thought a lot about the nerfs, and I think I may see why they're doing it.In 4.3 we will see the release of the Looking for Raid tool. If you're not aware, raids entered through the Looking for Raid will actually be easier than the normal raid and provide a lower ilevel reward. That being said, I believe the nerf to current tier (Firelands) content is to reduce the barrier of entry for raiding. It would be rather foolish to require a player to gear up in normal modes in firelands (still challenging for some that have done very little raiding) in order to progress to the 'new content' using the Looking for Raid tool and have less of a challenge within that raid (Dragon Soul-EZ Mode) They have historically nerfed old content when it becomes old, but now they're doing it early to give everyone a chance to go through Firelands, get some gear and be ready for the new Looking for Raid tool.
