    Holy shit these nerfs are brutally insane. I guess we're clearing up to HM Rag this week on our first day then >.< No more sub 10% wipes on Rhyo, Beth, Bale, or Domo. They'll all just flop over and hand us our well deserved 391s.

    Unbelievable - the normal mode nerfs are almost on a par with that they did to the TBC bosses when 3.0 hit - i.e making almost all of them utterly faceroll. Except that was at the end of the expansion / a month or two before the release of Wrath to let people see everything, not just before the final tier like this.

    They get more stupid every day

    And where was said that heroic modes where for everyone and to be pushed trough? Sorry. They only need to nerf things because they nerfed the things before it. You learn to play the game, you don't need nerfs anymore. If this isn't true, all players in the world would be 0/7 normal.
    Why learn to play a game that the baddies will cry and whine about and will be eventually nerfed? It is pathetic of Blizzard to ruin the game over people with very low IQ's and lack the ability to hit a few buttons and move out of fire. The baddies already get all the good parking spots now they want to come to WOW and ruin the game for everyone with a brain and heartbeat.

Now I'll be able to. Sounds good to me. Rage more, haters.
    Ya thats it its Synergy, Oh wait im not slow and mental im just LAGGING, the infamous baddie quotes of wow. I hear normal content is hard and you need years of synergy ROFL, try again.

Blizzards philosophy is to let as many as possible see every raid before the next is introduced, but then why isn't the nerfs to normal mode sufficient...? Oh well, I don't really care.
    Because as long as this game becom just a gear farm festival, item level means content. So when a player demands to see the content in firelands, they demand leaving the place with their bags full of 378 on the 1st week and next week 391 when heroic opens. It's like bothering with how many candies you'll be able to eat while watching a movie on theater, "to the hell with the movie, meh wantz candies".

    So, even if shannox and shannox heroic are exactly the same boss character (wich means 0 content in heroic), Blizzard now consider that they delivered to you new 2 bosses, 2 new content. So Firelands = 14 bosses... T11 was a awesome amount of 25 bosses! The most content ever made!!! Success.

    Hey guys, I got a fever, and the only cure....is more nerd rage.

    Actually yeah, why the **** are they nerfing T12 hardmodes? If they want people to see content, surely that's what looking for raid and normal modes are for? They didn't butcher T11 hard modes like this when T12 came out - they just nerfed normal modes.

    God they're idiots

    I'm sorry to say this but 10 man HM is a JOKE

    well considering that i am on a very low pop server where you cant exactly just reach out get better players in if someone leaves or suck terribly i welcome the nerfs even though i probably wont see heroic ragnaros either way.

    i know people are gonna call me bad but my im busy picking my nose to even bother with your hate.

    Massive nerfs

    Shannox will now Feign Dead on pull, so you can just loot your epics.

    Rhyolith is nerfed so bad instead of walking, he will now be moving around in a Wheel Chair.

    Baleroc is no longer immune to Disarm effects.

    Majordomo now have a new animal phase called Squirrel.
