As long as 25-mans are getting legendaries faster and as long as they are giving away more gear per boss (both of which are true), 25-mans will ALWAYS be around.3 battle-rezzes per fight plus the fact that 1/17th of your groups DPS is MUCH LESS than 1/5th means that you can bring a person who doesn't have top gear or top spec or top performance means that 25-mans will still be around.Yes, logistically they are a nightmare, but I've seen both sides.My first attempt on HC Halfus I made a mistake and died in the first 10 seconds. My guild was able to keep going and get a kill. Move that to 10-man.... Never happen. Not when I represent 1/5th of the DPS in that group.I think it's silly for people to continue this thought that 25-mans are going to die. Wowprogress has the score card, of the top 10 guilds, 8 are 25-mans. Expanding to top 20, and you get 14 25-mans, but the last 3 spots on that list are 10-mans. So, of the top 17 guilds in the world, 3 are 10-man guilds. 25-mans are not dying. They are thriving right now. And the only guilds that have "high turnover", etc, are the guilds that are not in the top 20, possibly top 50. And really, who cares about those guilds other than the members of that guild.

Nonsense.The top guilds are mostly 25 man because 10 is widely viewed as a joke.Also forget you dps calculations. Boss HP actually takes this 5/17 ratio into consideration. Hence why most 10 mans run 6/7 or 8 DPS depending on the fight. Essentially giving them a 20% -> 60% extra dps.

Using the top guilds in the game is not very representative of the game as a whole. On my server out of 90 guilds with progress on DS, only 6 are 25 man. That's less than 7%. That seems to be a pretty good indication that for the majority of players and guilds, 10 man is the way to go. I don't think 25 man will die completely unless Blizzard kills it, but it has quickly become the minority.
