    Best. Feature. Ever. In 5.1.

    "Raid groups are no longer necessary to enter pre-Mists of Pandara raid dungeons. Enemies in these raids that previously required more than one player to defeat are now more easily dealt with by players battling alone."

    THANK YOU. THIS WAS SO ANNOYING.

    It's been the little things this expac like this that get me excited. No more staying in the raid group after raiding nights so I can do the old raids for mounts. I know I could just ask a guildy to party with me so I can make a raid group but I always feel like I'm bothering them if I do that so I don't...ever.

    I wonder if this means that Najentus will be alot easier for solo players, samething with Reliquary of Souls.. that would actually be kinda cool.

    Or.. the Gunship in ICC? Omg the possibilities. ^^

    They did make adjustments for some bosses at least, though i think it's mostly for Classic ones.

    Razorgore, Viscidius, and Najentus all recieved tweaks to make them more solo-friendly.
    Games are not necessarily "easier" today. You are just a better player.
    It takes more now to impress many gamers than it did 2-5 years ago, because so much has already been seen and done.
    Many players expect to be wow'd with every release of a beloved franchise.
    These are generally NOT the fault of the developers, but the fault of many players over-hyping and/or setting expectations too high.

    I think it was Ghostcrawler who tweeted they would implement this at some point, but I didn't expect to see it already in 5.1. Very nice!

    I know those guys did because all/most of them drop pets and those pets are part of the meta of classic raid pet collecting. Not sure anything later is going to be changed to be solo friendly however. Friendlier? Comparatively. /rambles on a while.

    Very good change. Been waiting a while for it.

    I wonder if they'll change, say... Kalecgos.

    I just hope I can solo Twin Emperors as an assassination rogue.

    It was a somewhat easy workaround to have a trial account with a level 10 toon to invite on a second instance of WoW, especially with SSD load times for the game... but, certainly a very nice and convenient change.

    Goodbye Raidgroupholde, I will (sorta) miss you.

    Too bad the gold is severely nerfed. The good news? People seeking transmog now can get it!

    I merely leveled a toon on a trial account to 11 and parked it in an inn. I'd duel box and invite it to a raid then Alt+F4 out of the toon. Worked like a charm. This is definitely easier though.

    Finally! This is the indeed the best feature EVER implented. All categories.

    I agree, it's really awesome for transmog, reputations etc.
    A complete adjusted bosses list would be very nice.

    I'd switch to Combat or Subtlety, cause Ass relies alot on poison dmg, and one is immune to physical, other immune to fire/frost/nature/shadow/arcane (It rocks being a Paladin some days). Assassination, since it relies on Envenom... not so good. Pin yourself in a corner against a wall, and just pound on the melee one (don't bother to cleave, the other is immune).

    Nothing yet on PTR to show Reliquary will be made more solo-friendly.

    Only the three above I mentioned have been adjusted by Blizzard.
