I don't want the squish. The whole point of vastly increased iLevels, for me, was one of the ways I could increase my ability to do the stuff that had just been nerfed because it was now old hat for the hardcore raiders.Whenever anyone talks about making old content "more relevant", I get flashbacks to Vanilla and TBC with having to gear up solo to gear up in groups of five to gear up in groups of ten to gear up in groups of twenty to gear up in groups of forty in each raid in turn and don't forget to farm specific resistance sets for everybody or you won't be able to get past a specific boss designed purely to stop your progress dead in its tracks and we might as well get rid of Valour gear and raid-quality craftables too because we can't have people taking shortcuts or plugging gaps caused by a stupid RNG system that always results in the same two items dropping from each boss until the end of time...*breathes*

I don't want the squish, either. Some of my fondest memories in the game are going back and soloing old stuff for drops or achievements I didn't take the time to get while leveling.Whenever I was feeling burnt out from current content, I would go run through heroic Sethekk for Anzu or MgT for the White Hawkstrider and phoenix pet. One of my goals for Mists is to get to a place where I can maybe, hopefully solo my way to a phoenix mount. By the time Mists comes out, that will be three expansions old - I don't think it's unreasonable to let the soloists among us have a shot at this kind of stuff three expansions later.Maybe I should be more diligent in my farming of Attumen...

There's ways they could make it just as easy to solo Anzu, or Rag, or Kael'thas post-squish as it is now, despite the post-squish gear being current BC level in power, so you shouldn't let "I won't be able to solo old dungeons and raids" be something that stands in your way of liking the squish.Now if they do end up making it harder because they insist on old raid bosses being skull level, then I'll be just as pissed off as you are and ready to rabblerabblerabble!
