"So, i don't really buy that heroics are now objectively easier. Veterans are just much better at them than they were at BC. And us, news, casuals or bads, are having just as a hard time with Cata heroics as veterans did when they were first confronted with BC heroics."Nope. Here's the thing: in their first iteration, BC heroics *required* CC on trash pulls. Or the highly skilled and as-geared-as-possibly tank died. Pull aggro on trash? Dead. Don't move out of the fire instantly? Dead. There was no margin for error.These days you can waltz into a heroic, the tank grabs entire trash packs at once, and it gets AE'd down.So it's not a question of skill. The two factors that have really changed since then is that tanks don't really have threat issues anymore, not even on packs, and that blue or purple gear is easier to get before you head into the dungeon. But that doesn't account for the difference in difficulty.
