I'm not part of an elite hardcore guild. I run what I consider a casual, relaxed 10 man guild raid that is currently 5/7H. We raid twice a week for 3-4 hours. Which is why I define us as casual.Whenever I read these articles about raid difficulty, there's always a big following of people who support the Wrath days and how it's too hard now and they can't afford to spend the time/effort/whatever and it's really tiresome.I'll be downvoted for sure, but all the people who complain are those who refuse to get stuck into the content and get their hands dirty. I for one want to feel like I've earned my epics, not have them handed to me because I hit a spell on my bar once every few seconds. Most of the complaints I see are people being unprepared to learn fights, understand mechanics and to give it a shot, and to that I say, if you're not prepared to do the hard yards, you don't deserve the reward. It takes no more than 10 minutes to watch a boss video, it takes no more than 5 to read the dungeon journal (you don't even need to load a website anymore!), instead of posting here you could be researching a fight so that when you face it, it's not a complete shock.Everything in this game is doable, but you need to take some initiative and some accountability and realise that it's up to you to put in the effort.
