"People" (in general) seem to forget what it was like when the dungeons first came out. They were a challenge, they took time (read: wipes) to learn - even in normal, depending on your gear!Of course, after a while you outgear the content, many people ran instances 'til they got sick of them, "Everybody" knew what to do, right? No, not everybody. There's always someone with a "first toon", or even later, with a "first melee toon" etc. Just because they can roflstomp content on their FL geared mage means jack when they're on a melee class, stand in front of the boss (or in the AoE). Or if they don't have their raid healer backing them, but an appropriately geared healer *squish!*The only thing that I dislike about the pre-HoT and pre-Troll instances is that they were unforgiving when played "at gear level" - one mistake by anyone and it's a wipe. The trolls should've had a big disclaimer "This was a raid once, please be awake and pay attention" just to wake people up. They were/are challenging, required you to pay attention, and you might still wipe. The bad thing was that you *had* to run them for points - and having only 2 instances for that did get on my nerves.HoTs? Not as much of a challenge, some neat mechanics (for 5-mans), but still had rough/challenging spots if you weren't in FL gear.And now people raise their alts, and can't grasp the fact that "no, you're NOT OP for the content, stop being an idiot". I don't care that your main has an ilvl of over 9,000, *this* toon doesn't so stop being stupid *and* a dick. And by all that's holy, please DO get out of the bloody fire!It's not Blizzard, it's the players. Stop being arrogant and things will go a lot smoother and it might just be fun at any level.
