I agree with both Tyler and Scorfula. I myself also love love banging my head against a boss for hours on head, night after night, working hard to improve and achieve a goal with my fellow guild members. I don't Raid for the gear, I don't Raid for the achievements, I don't even raid for the boss kills. I Raid because I like logging on and being challenged 3 or 4 nights a week with my guild.While I understand that this is not a massive majority, we are a large crowd none the less, and I think Scorfula's point is well put. Each boss fight that doesn't have a Hard mode is likely to be a boss fight I wont be doing for long.It also bothers me this trend of applying debuffs to the Hard mode encounters as well. I love the idea of nerfing the content slowly over time to allow more people to see it - however, Hard modes have never been about "seeing" the content. Hard modes are where the players who want to test themselves and compete with others go to get their fix, and each time the content sees a nerf, it really mucks around with that aspect of the game. Our guild just downed Yor'sahj on Hard mode after the nerf - A one shot. We'll always wonder if we could have had it that week without the nerf or not; but of course, we can't undo the buff, because none of the other guilds will either, so we're inevitably forced to use it anyway.
