On the subject of 'long raids' and everything one thing I'm very disappointed didn't pan out in cata that Blizz said they would do is having multiple raids per tier. For one thing multiple raids alleviates that problem of reaching the end boss taking a whole reset (since if you so desire you can focus on a progression kill of the smaller raid's end boss) but I think it just adds much needed variety to raiding. Getting stuck in one place week in, week out gets very repetitive, firelands being a particularly notable example where a raider could go months without seeing any colours other than browns/oranges/reds and yellows.One thing I would quite like Blizzard to consider is that each subsequent raid does not have to be a tier higher, talking about why so few saw Yogg and Algalon one major reason has to be that the content was only out for a little over 3.5 months before they released TOC with gear that made Ulduar irrelevant. If TOC had had the same ilvl gear as Ulduar I think the raid would have gone down a lot better with players since it would have offered them choice, a total of 19 bosses instead of 5.As long as they signposted it well enough I think it would go down well (i.e. we're starting with a 6 boss raid in this tier, expect a 3 boss raid in a couple months) and would allow more frequent content without making older content immediately irrelevant or making casual raiding guilds feel too pressured to 'keep up'
