May 11th 2009 8:14PM Well I was doing over 2k dps at level 70. If you can't do 2k, you shouldn't really be in a WotLK raid of any kind. If you can't do more than 1.5k, you'll be a hindrance to your heroic group if you go.
Apr 2nd 2009 11:27AM To casuals: You are not entitled to hardcore rewards because you pay the same monthly fee. You say you can't play enough to raid enough to get the rewards. Sorry about that, but I do raid enough (actually, my guild has been clearing all content in 1 night of raiding for 3 months, so I actually don't play that much) and we did earn the rewards. There are only 4 guilds on my server that have Heroic: GotR, and I'm proud to be in one of them. The 310% mount is a status symbol, something I can be proud I worked for. I also got the 10-man version, which was still a big deal to me. OS3d-10 was the hardest thing I've done in wrath.
So yeah, QQing isn't going to change the fact that Blizzard doesn't owe every subscriber a special 310% mount. And I think some of you confuse the above statement with the fact that you're also not losing anything in any way. You didn't have one of the 2 mounts being removed before, and though you can't get them, you're not being punished in any way. There's a distinct difference that many of you don't see.
Also, there are other options for casual gamers to earn proto-drakes. And if you really really have to have a 310% speed mount, then you should be aiming for the Violet Proto-Drake from the holiday achievements.
