Too much to read, but I have to say as a casual player who doesn't actually have time to hang out in the forums if I ever want to get any playtime in, I am SO GLAD about the huge amount of pushback those jerks in the mysterious "lack of PVE content" thread are getting, right now I'm a fresh-ish 85 and I'm still banging my head against heroics, which I hear are hard because some jerks in the forums decided to complain that Wrath was too easy for a year.

Goat, depends on which heroics you're in. The issue with the regular Cata heroics now is that almost no one runs them. As such, a lot of people in them are VERY undergeared and on top of that, they don't know the fight mechanics. This leads to a lot of wipes just due to people not know how to beat the fight and not wanting to take the time to find out.Sorry to hear you're having a touch go of it though. Things get a lot easier once you qualify (ilvl 353) for the new Hour of Twilight Heroics. Some things you should do are to definitely go do the Thrall questline since it awards a 365 cloak at the end. You can also get a 378 relic/wand for 700jp which should help as well.

That's some great advice over there nosoup, I'd only add that JP chest/legs are worth it. Really though the goal should be pushing for HoT heroics to get geared there.

But the original Cata heroics were just as impossible a year ago. Spending 90 minutes in an instance and still unable to finish it after repeated wipes? Or, the group dissolved in less than 5 minutes because it wiped on the first pull.I couldn't take it anymore and quit the game for a couple months.(BTW, word is that those original heroics are now a "sewer" full of folks who can't or won't graduate to the Twilight 3, so you might want to lay your hands on some pvp gear to get a quick boost to i353.)
