You just said the current (soon to be previous) tier was overtuned for you. So you presumably didn't do it. Once 4.2 comes out, 4.0 will be nerfed, and you can do it.
But with your reply, you insinuate that you've already done the current content, in which case you go do Firelands because it obviously wasn't THAT overtuned, considering you beat it.

Saying that "serious players arent interested in 10 mans" is very, very wrong. I'm a serious player. I run a guild. I raid 3 nights a week. I'm almost up to 3 level 85s, including a paladin that I took from 1 to 82 in about 2 weeks, despite having a full-time job. My raid team downed Cho'gall for the first time after about 5 attempts.
Almost every one of the serious players in my guild prefers 10 mans. We like them because we like having actual responsibility, instead of only having about 4/25 people do work and everyone else is essentially replaceable.
The reason 25 mans died is because the only people that actually like doing them are the ones who are the dead weight and would never be successful in a 10 man raid. Unfortunately for those players, none of them have the competency or motivation to organize their own 25, and they aren't being carried by the good players who just want better gear, like they were in Wrath.
Jun 17th 2011 4:43PM I will never understand why people think 10s are easier because there are less people. There is a reason all the cataclysm world firsts were done in 25 man. And that's because 25s are balanced around having dead weight. But if you're Paragon or Ensidia or whoever, every one of your raiders is a tip top player, so you don't have dead weight, and are thereby overpowered for the content.
The other reason 10s are harder is because of personal responsibility. If you're a healer in 25, you have people to cover for you if you screw up and die. In 10 man, there are 3 healers, each one has a different responsibility, and they cannot cover each other very much at all, because each one is stretched already.
Feb 22nd 2011 1:44PM @ The bungie mmo thing: Well, I'm never going to Massively now. Kotaku is not a credible source for anything. Ever. If Massively is going to create articles about the nonsense that goes up on Kotaku then they just lost all their credibility with me.
May 8th 2010 11:06PM Iirdan, the man in black is Tommy Lee Jones and Will Smith. They fight aliens in New York and protect you and I from things that we cannot comprehend. Like the fact that the island is a time-traveling shark from the sun. And that the smoke monster really just needs a hug. And remember that polar bear? It was eating giant space lice off the shark-island.

Apr 9th 2010 1:27PM Get a dk, a mob, and a warrior. The dk death grips the mob while the warrior heroic leaps at it. They clash in midair and create an explosion of metal music and awesome.
