I knew this was coming. My goal for my raiders this month was for us to get 3 new HM's down -- Yor'sahj/Ultrax and Hagara. 2/3 is down atm and would like to see the last one fall before the next waves of nerfs go out -- but if it doesn't happen -- oh well. Our goal is to kill HM DW and if we continue to work at it we will down the boss before Mists comes out. I think sometimes it's pretty easy to put all of this unnecessary pressure on yourself and your guild to perform. In Mists are any of us really going to remember if we killed HM DW at 15% buff or 25% ?? All we'll remember is killing it.So for those who might find themselves freaking about it .. relax. Enjoy the ride and enjoy your guild.

Amen Lipstick.the guild i run just did 4/8 reg 10 man last week, and all of us felt accomplished. why? well this is the third week of us trying, and most people have never stepped foot in DS, not even in the RF DS version. our first attempt we only downed 1 boss in about 3 hours, and it was brutal on us. but in the second week we got 2 down, and the third we managed 4! i'm sure the buff had something to do with it, but for a guild who went through a change in leadership with many players either leaving the guild or game completely, i feel we've come a long way and have finally shown our results. our goal isnt getting heroics down because we know we wont have the time to get there(we only raid one night a week), but if we can somehow manage to get to Madness and clear it, then it'll be a sure victory for us, even with the buff :)

I can see striving to down a boss pre-nerf (whether the nerf is toggled or not) and I can even see being upset if that first nerf comes through with little warning, but you have a point. Once a boss is nerfed who cares to what extent? No one is going to boast that they killed Deathwing at a 10% rather than a 15%. On a side note I think it might be a good idea for Blizzard to stagger the nerfs for Normal and Heroic. That way when guilds see Normal get the nerf they know to step up their game before the next patch. It is conceivable to me that there are Heroic-capable guilds that can progress, just very slowly. At any rate, it may cut down on the complaining.
