As much as I appreciated the challenge of the early heroics, there were a lot of logistical problems with them.1) Brutal trash pulls required CC which, in turn, required that you have the right CC class in your group. This made getting groups together tough.2) Using (long chains of) heroics for attunement quests, mandating that everyone in the guild that wants to raid has to go through them. This put a lot of stress on guild tanks and healers in TBC who had to run the damn things over and over. Thankfully these sorts of attunements seem to be a thing of the past.3) Heroics as "end-game" content for non-raiders and alts. This alone kills the idea of any heroic being truly difficult. If the masses have nothing better to do than to run heroics to upgrade their character, the heroics have to be tuned to the masses.I will say that one of my fond memories of WoW was completing the CoT: Black Morass heroic before it was nerfed. That bastard was hard.
