    i mean normals are more demanding than in the past for guilds that dont overgear it. of course it's easy to walk into ToT in 517 gear and faceroll it.

    I want you to think a little bit about what you wrote there.

    Imagine that it were actually possible to nerf the difficulty of the difficult things in life.

    It would be UTTERLY MONSTROUS not to do so.

    Can you imagine someone saying, "Yeah, granny's dying of cancer. Suck it up and stop being so casual" if that person could actually nerf cancer?

    because why should you accept any less? you've got to be kidding me with this. First of all I don't think the majority of players should be accepting of less. Let's turn this on it's head. Let's say tmmrw everything is made easier would you then by the same expectation say well things shouldn't be made hard to cater to them? Are you just okay with whatever or is their a distinction between hard and easy. LFR doesn't cater to you unless your a bad. Their is no difficulty that caters to you. That is appropriate to your ability or skill. LFR is not a difficulty.

    See, this is why we cant have good things. Introduce LFR,players want a "easy mode". If easy mode was to happen it would not take long before we read posts here about someone wanting super easy mode.

    Maybe we should just do this :

    LFR - Super Easy Normal - Easy Normal - Normal - Hard Normal - Easy Heroic - Heroic - Hard Heroic - Megaultra hard Heroic.

    I cant believe people still are bitching about difficult levels for raiding. We got ultra easy mode LFR, normal and heroic mode. It's more than enough. it's disturbing seeing people actually want this.

    The real issue for blizzard to focus on is the servers. With low pop realms with few decent raiders, its hard to PUG. On my realm its rare to see pugs being made(in trade). I tried to join several, but it takes so long to get 10 decent people for this..

    see, heres the problem.

    the vast majority of guilds arent even touching heroics.

    so...

    what harm is done in making normals easier, and leaving heroics alone? most heroic guilds dont even spend 2 weeks in normal modes. you might even get more people getting their feet wet by trying heroics for the first time. sure, they might not be cut out for it, but it's an option.

    Because those normal mode raiders need a challenge to be better players to not dilute the skill pool of WoW. It's low enough as is.

    Yes, absolutely! And after that i'd like to see "Superezmode" where bosses drop health just by waiting. Of course we need hardhardcore mode aswell, harder than heroic mode! Maybe even soloraidmode and maybe something more. Just to please everyone.

    Do you have numbers to back that up? Im in a normal raiding guild, and I prefer a decent challenge in normal mode so we can work on it for some time and slowly start on heroic bosses.

    If normal was a faceroll and then suddenly heroic was a brick wall from first boss it would kinda suck. LFR --> prep for normal mode ----> prep for HC mode.

    Would feel wierd if LFR and normal was faceroll then suddenly heroic mode was a brick wall.

    Come on people, get a guild and start some raiding. Its no harm in a decent challenge. Training for those nice heroic modes.

    We all know what would happen if normal mode was very easy:

    "OMG RAIDING SO EASY NOTHING TO DO NOW LAWL. What you mean heroic mode? Same content, dont bother"

    they could fix normal difficulty by tuning normals properly, at least. theres no reason why terrace should be easier than heart of fear. or for primordius/twin consorts to be faceroll while earlier bosses are harder.

    Honestly I'd rather we go back to 1 difficulty, normal, with hardmodes like Ulduar where you had to do something special to activate them. Too many difficulties as is.

    LFR is indeed a difficulty, there are wipes there. I'd reckon that I have the skill to participate in normals, but like so many other things, individual skill is not the only determining success factor in this game.

    It's pretty simple. There is content for all levels of time commitment and skill here. Some of this content requires more of a time commitment than what I currently aspire to. So, I don't get to see it all. Shit happens. This goes beyond raiding as well. I won't get a gladiator title... nor do I ask that it be made easier to acquire.

    There's also content I have absolutely zero interest in. Pet battles, for example. Should I ask for them to be removed, because clearly the devs aren't committing resources to what I specifically want?

    Normals seem to be cleared by lower numbers of guilds these days, but people not even participating in them has just as much of an impact as groups who simply can't progress through them.. which simple skews the outlook on things when the word 'nerf' starts getting thrown around.

    And as far as heroics go, once they're cleared and proven to be working as intended, they should never be nerfed. Not ever.

    AWESOME ARGUMENT!

    I agree the devs should not be accepting less form there player base. They should expect the players to actually look into and use the tools they spent countless hours developing and trully enjoy every thing that they have offered the player base. The devs should not have to accept that players don't want to use the things that the devs spent so much time on and just nerf things untill 50% of the things they developed can be ignored!

    Trully a great argument!

    difficulty is pretty good. we could clear normal mode and 2 heroic bosses with 1-2 raid days per week each 3 hours. If you can't do that you are either bad yourself and should play LFR or look for a guild that fits you.

    You know why horridon is harder? bad players doing bad dps and not doing kicks, decurse, cleanse. Then you get overwhelmed entire raid is debuffed. You know what would fix that explaining to players WHICH adds need to die EXPLAINING which adds need kicked. EXPLAINING what needs decursed. This shit is raiding 101 the fight IS NOT difficult it is entirely the players fault.

    Sorry, what!?


    LFR, you can afk and get loot for free.

    Normal mode = EASY mode.

    Hard Mode/Heroic = real raid.




    What else do you want? a Button in the middle of the screen like " Click here for loot" !??

    Really I don't get it.

    No their isn't. Their is no content for average level players with a moderate amount of time to commit. In other words their is no NORMAL RAIDING. Nerf all of it. Catering to the vanity of heroic raiders is foolish and will bleed them subs in the long term and in the short term. Giving casuals and average players a real stake in end game raiding AND NOT LFR will make the raiding healthy again.
