I'm a Raid Leader for a team that was broken apart and restructured during Tier 11. We struggled to get up to speed during Firelands, barely staying on the curve in Normal mode.Dragonsoul has been the first raid that we've been ahead of the average progression; beating the timing of the nerfs, and getting to experience Heroic raiding for the first time.Overall, I enjoyed the fights and the challenge of learning the dance. But I agree that once the moves are learned, the fights became repetitive rapidly. After we downed a boss, we rarely wiped on it again. At least the Heroic versions added some new mechanics and a significant challenge.I remember struggling for weeks to bring down Ragnaros for our guild first kill, and finally exulting when we succeeded. That fight took pretty incredible levels of concentration, awareness, and cooperation.Unfortunately, although I think it's a beautiful fight and entertaining storytelling platform, the Madness fight has never seemed as frenetic. There was a challenge, the first week or two we tried it.Now, I can literally get up, answer the door, pay for the pizza, grab a pop, and return to the game mid-fight. There's no way you could do that on Rag. It still demands more awareness and coordination.
