    if you not already got 7/7 these nerfs are for you, because your raid is too bad.
    if you already got 7/7 you don't care...it's as easy as that.

    we were only on 1/7 HC using 3 healers for shannox ( we were gonna try 2 healers this week before we read nerfs) and it was easy. So 15% less hp / damage....so this week we have less HP but more damage...free loot for all!!!

    If your guild wasn't 6/7h before the nerf you are far from having any right to complain seeing as we've had several months to do so. If your guild was, you have a prenerf kill and nobody can get that anymore. what's the problem?

    The problem is that some people like a challenge. Imagine you are an elite athlete and you see a game on at your local park so you decide to play with the local kids. Absolutely dominating them is fun for all of 5mins, but the challenge that you love isn't there so it loses that appeal quickly.We were working our way through heroics and enjoying pushing ourselves and trying different tactics to overcome each boss and now they will all be faceroll. Everyone likes the feeling when they finally overcome that boss that has been frustrating them (eg Kael, Vashj, Archy). Now that feeling is getting taken away. That is why people are pissed off.

    Heroic Firelands status : snorefest. Oneshot everything up to baleroc, break time. Next 2 months gonna be boring as fuck.

    @ people saying content is ''hidden or w/e'' hard content isn't hidden, its there for you to grasp, just step up your game, heroic modes don't hide anything anyway its the same as normal so this argument is fucking shit.

    Only people crying are the self-entitled no lifers who all somehow claim to only raid 6-8 hours a week and yet are 6/7 heroic. Hmmm.

    Yeah, sorry. Not buying it.

    The nerfs help the majority of us. You had your time, now its ours. Deal with it.

    If its all the same, why bother playing at all? Because you get to brag about how great you are? Yeah.

    It isn't a case of stepping up our game. Its a case of whether or not our raids are stable enough to field a viable raid group every week, and if we can put enough hours into learning fights. This whole 'baddies' concept is just ridiculous and pathetic, and screams 'I have no life so I justify my existance by being slightly above average at raiding a game that isn't even considered hard in the first place'.

    i.e. Learn that this game is about fun, and not about how awesome you think you are.

    I don't know.... I wasn't too concerned with the nerfs... but we just had the most boring raid since Naxx10.

    4.3 quickly please

    pretty sure he meant 6/7 H.

    They feel like normal mode fights.

    wow, a lot of elitist douchebags who like sweeping generalizations in this thread. Wonder how many of them actually disabled the ICC buff when that was the end raid, i´m guessing, none of them. Stop your crying.

    Well, tonight my guild was amazed and happy. Rhyolith still gave us a bit of trouble (steering is not fun, sorry) but we one-shot all the other bosses including Majordomo Staghelm. Finally got our first tier token.

    Cool now we have a chance on beating Ragnaros.

    Don't really care for the rest since we were 6/7 for quite a while and although we would like to have Ragnaros killed before the nerfs it's no problem.
    It's also a good opportunity for the guilds that were struggling to do some progress and gear up preparing for the next tier.

    Additionally we can go back to kill Sinestra since we've missed her in the previous patch.
    So everything's cool and everyone is happy, i like it.
