  • Champions below level 110 now show level instead of iLevel on the mission results panel.

Ghostcrawler still occasionally talks about WoW. Remember that he no longer works for or speaks for Blizzard.

Raids were epic in part because they were difficult and required a lot of coordination. You couldn't just round up mobs and AE them down, which worked for a lot of dungeons and quests. If there was a boss mechanic to get out of the fire, you had to get out of the fire, not assume that Circle of Healing would take care of it. And when you finally beat a boss after hours of days of attempts, it felt great, and everyone cheered in Vent.

I think there is room for a more casual raiding mode that preserves some of that experience. I don't think Raid Finder (at least circa MoP, which is that time I tried it) delivers on that experience. (Source)
