    ffs, look at all you idiots..."omg yes now i can finally kill majordomo on regular!" you people are the reason blizzard had to dumb down the game so much, so ty... i will not be re-activating my account, so long WoW. So good for you "casuals" because now they just nerfed firelands to fuck for you. oh and in 4.3 you guys will get to do LFR, its official.... "Bad" is a viable way to play now. So i would like to thank all the retards that couldnt take a moment to learn how to play their fucking class, so now blizzard caters to you. Sure you guys are happy, but the people that actually know what the fuck they are doing, aren't.

    Thanks for the troll. No one horde side on my server (The Scryers) managed to kill Rags on normal before the nerf. Alliance didn't fare much better either with 1 guild being able to get heroic shannox just before the nerf.

    That made me LOL irl, seriously What is this I don't even, is all that I could think about. I'm not glad these nerfs are out and about; the fact that my guild can't down heroic bosses before a nerf makes me very sad and ashamed. World of Warcraft is hard, please give me epics with no effort, I deserve them because I rent a character for 15 dollars a month.

    Yep, same for us. Been just doing T11 raid once a week with guildies so far, we tried Shannox once month or so back but we don't have time to wipe on bosses for hours to be able to kill them.

    Glad that the nerfs are coming, having a really hard time getting into raids as a Fury Warrior, and hope this will open the gates for me. Keep crying hardcores, but this is for the better of the game.

    Jesus Christ... For whoever was expecting little nerfs, to get to the "20%" at the end of the patch (4 months), BAM! Not only 15% and 25% but also mechanics alread changed... I can only imagine that T12 Heroic will end being easier than T11 Heroic. At least they had the common sense to let H-Rag's HP "untouched" (at least for this week).

    I lol at all the "elite" players raging about these nerfs with comments like "thats it blizz so dumb game down im heppy i never goings backs to wows anymore!!111" Noone cares about you and what you think. Please go somewhere else and waste precious forum space.

    In all honesty who will care about these when the next lvl of content comes out. You only care now because its relevant. Once 4.3 is over theyre gonna do the exact same thing before exp. 4 and their event and beyond. (Unless Blizzcon Q&A changes anything.) QQ is pointless. Top guilds will get through these quickly. If not the nerf is good. Even if you like the challenge it wont matter come 4.3 unless you have some ultra consumer morals like "some" people do. I for one dont care.

    Yes, they can be 6/7. Because casual raiding means playing less, but not badly.

    And ppl should be sad, qqing, and demanding their rewards for their 15$ because they can't down some pixels, it's a game.

    And how is this better for the game? So that people that can't push a button on a keyboard without destroying it AND the mouse in the same procces can also "see" the content?

    These nerfs are a bit excessive, and this comes from someone who hasn't cleared normal yet. This doesn't really help those that are struggling learn to play better when they can just wait for Blizzard to "soften things up" a few months later then having those same bads require ridiculous things from pugs (LFM H Firelands, link achievement and ilvl 380 or better or no invite). I would have thought possibly that the nerfs would have been slowly fed in to allow folks some aid to clearing the content while actually learning and playing better.

    I really hope they nerfed the trash to domo by 25% too... FFS that takes forever.

    I actually enjoy I can do Rag with him knocking me to outer space with Rage of Ragnaros while I'm flying down from a trap.. that was shitty RNG.
