    they really should not be called "heroic" dungeons.

    Sorry, I should clarify. Challenging content with gear progression.
    I assumed you would read the context, how foolish of me

    What is with all these stupid Polls with just 2 options and it's always complete opposites ....

    I'm going to Vote to easy, but it's not by much at all... Some of the bosses still have some interesting and tricky mechanics that without performing the fight correctly can be disastrous (Rattlegore, Lillian Voss etc), and some trash can require good interrupts or the tank popping some kind of CD unless your healer is exceptional.

    So Yes I do think they're 'to easy', but honestly it's not by much, if the difficulty was just slightly higher it would be perfect.

I'm a complete idiot who can't even think for 2 seconds straight so I need normal?
    There is no normal.

    Also, they're man's... so srs business.

    Perfect difficulty. If I am tired it is fine, I still pull enough DPS and won't die due to some instant kill. They are not a 30min-1hr trudge through CCing pack and everything. If you want true difficulty, do challenge modes.

    I think the heroics are fine for the time being, my only concern is that a tier two down the line we'll be murdering bosses in a matter of seconds á la Wrath and very late Cataclysm. Fortunately there are some fun mechanics that you can't just afk your way through, which should keep things enjoyable, but I'm just a tad concerned that gear scaling will overtake them very quickly.

    It'd be a shame if we ended up with a huge gulf between "boringly easy heroics" and "brutally punishing challenge modes". I feel like there's a middle band of players who'd be left rather unsatisfied if that were the case.

    For how long will the challenge modes actually be challenging?

    ret healing a heroic just hours after dinging 90 with very very low gear level... I do not think that heroics should be insanely challenging but this is silly

    Considering the Gear level is normalized and after doing a few they are extremely punishing ... A very long time?

    Even when people figure out perfect comps for certain dungeons and upload Youtube Videos of how it's done, it's still going to be a long time before any form of average player comes even close to Gold.

    Well well well look at this.

    People whined to hell in wotlk because of 5 man content being extremely faceroll. Blizzard makes heroics harder in cataclysm and people proceed to whine that they don't wanna spend 45min - 1hour in an heroic and that they're hard.

    Blizzard warned before MoP that it's heroics would be somewhere between wotlk and cata (who are we kidding, they're wotlk lvl). And now people whine?

    If you want a challenge, perhaps you should try, oh, I don't know, challenge modes?
    There is no point in doing challenge modes. It provides no better rewards. Cosmetic stuff is useless.

    They're fine, why have difficult heroics when there are challenge modes?

    Then don't do them, but if it's a challenge you want that's why they are there. Heroics are for gearing up.

    Based on your logic, they really shouldn't be called "honor" points either. :P

    Probably not, but it's just kind of the name that has stuck as "Max level dungeons" doesn't roll off the tongue quite as well :P

    Which is exactly why they're still called Heroic.
    90 Heroics should be entry level content to gear up at 90, that's it. They are not supposed to be hard.

    Was a blue post not so long ago regarding this.
    But no, they're not too easy (who gets to judge that?) either.

    The total number of players who controls what they spend their money on is who gets to judge weither the dungeons are off or just-right.
