I liked having difficulty with the 5-mans when Cataclysm first hit. I liked the discovery and the feeling of triumph when I got a 346 piece, or when we finished up a rep grind and got that rare shiny 359. But it got old fast.I'm hoping with Mists that we'll have a month or two of gear struggle before they open the floodgates on badge epics. My main doesn't feel like my main any more. The struggle rewards picking a single character and staying with her for a time, but it's a pleasure best taken in smaller doses.

Hmm, that's an interesting point. My case is different though: My main has an iLevel of 397 and counting, my alts - those I bother gearing and who aren't just there for their professions - are around 10 levels below that. With raid finder as the highest tier available to them, plus 397 VP gear, they will never catch up to my main who has already started on heroics. So, there's still a healthy difference in my opinion.Not saying your point isn't valid or anything, I'm just seeing it differently :-)

It may seem that way to someone who can't get their hands on the higher ILVL gear in the game. Sometimes people just run into progression roadblocks and if that's the case you may gear an alt equally or close to your main.

"I liked having difficulty with the 5-mans when Cataclysm first hit."I'm glad you enjoyed it, because a couple million of the rest of us didn't. After repeatedly spending in excess of an hour in a heroic, dying several times, and still never making it to the end before the group broke up, I, like many others, quit and didn't come back for at least a couple months, when the Firelands hub made some decent gear available.Since I was only able to play for about an hour a day, I enjoyed being able to clear a Wrath heroic in less than 20 minutes, and yet even if you put together a 5-man now, wearing i384 or above, I wonder how long it would take them to clear heroic Origination. 45 minutes?
