Sep 7th 2009 5:38AM My experience, from the viewpoint of a 1k ranking Ulduar raiding guild, halfway through the hard modes there, that have done Freya+3 for example.
Normal modes, very easy. Nice and accessible for most people out there, pugs, etc, no challenge for any half decent organized raiding guild. Loot pinata.
Heroic 10, got first 2 bosses down with 45 attempts left (going with 3 healers), a challenge, but very doable with some coordination. Faction champions raped us for 20 more attempts :(
Heroic 25, ouch, tough, beasts are still wiping us, but we've only had 2 evenings on it. A good proper challenge for most, which we might need to get more gear and experience for.
All in all I would say the heroic modes are tuned well.

I remember my first time going to freya, and being asked to Banish while we were already pulling. Took about 10 seconds for me to banish it, because I had to go into my spellbook and find it. Hadn't used any cc for over 6 months.
