    My guild downed Rag for the first time on 25 man (had him down >1 month ago on 10 man cleanup raids) last Thursday so we are fairly happy with the timing of this. It means that we beat the normal modes when they were still challenging and although we would have rather tried hard modes when they were hard, they will likely still pose us a challenge. It will also mean that the bosses that we still do on normal we can kill faster and have more time for heroic attempts =)

    Alysrazor "molts" in her fight, and if you pick up a feather, it lets you cast while moving and move faster. If you get three, you can fly and attack Alysrazor in the sky - it's a key mechanic of the fight.

    I hope you meant 3 healing. You were supposed to two heal before, so the nerfs make the two healers jobs easier allowing for a third, or just two heal and kill bosses faster.
