    15%??! It wasn't even hard to begin with, me in my 6 hours a week super casual 10man friends guild have cleared 6/7 heroic, so I can't really say I feel that a nerf that massive was needed. Some T11 heroics are going to be harder than T12 heroics now...

    The nerfs are welcome. My alts can finally pug 7/7 without problems .

    Wow, I figured this would be a 5% nerf per month for 4 months leading up to 4.3, not a 15-25% nerf on day 1! This will remove progression entirely from all bosses except heroic Ragnaros. Guilds that haven't even entered heroic modes will be 6/7 heroic in the next 2 weeks.

    This is too much in my opinion.I was hoping for an ICC-style nerf.

    I understand you are a pro player and all, but no "super casual guild" is 6/7 heroic. I wouldn't even necessarily say that a "super casual" guild would raid 6 hours a week.

    To the people whining about too easy content: It's a game, you shouldn't need to dedicate your entire life to it to be able to down some pixels.

    What are we supposed to do until 4.3 comes out now? I guess bang our heads against heroic ragnaros, but with 15% less damage even he will be significantly easier. Looking forward to months and months of trivial farming... But then I guess these nerfs weren't aimed at people successfully raiding T12, they were aimed at getting mouthbreathers who can barely handle Zul'gurub to do raids.

    He's just saying you could 3 heal all the fights now without worrying about enrage mechanics or anything
