'Monogamy'? Is that one of the ways people in Boringland bore each other?
It doesn't really matter if you steam roll normal, that's what normal is for. I could understand if it was heroic, but normal is obviously gonna feel easy after such a difficult tier in Heroic T15.

Garrosh is hard. 10 mans are easymode. Simple as that.
The Mists of Pandaria coming on September 25
From you pov, you can say your guild is pretty average, but the fact is that you are part of the top notch guilds in WoW. Even clearing normal only makes you part of the minority, most of the guilds don't even finish that.
Normal and Flex are meant exactly for them - if you clear normal, Heroic is your content.
We 1shotted the first 4, 2 wipes on the 5th, 1shot 6 and 2shot 7th (Sorry, bad with names). This was with ~3h of raiding, avg ilvl was 541.71.
Yes, normals are easy, but it does get harder and harded for every boss, the difficulty curve are alot smoother than it was in ToT.
Wow, every damn time a tier releases we get these threads.....
One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?
I have a new heroic quality guild that only has ~530 due to being...a new group. I expect the fights to be a decent challenge. That's the way it should be.
I think the first wipe is still saved on my Twitch and I might keep it around for the lulz.
First 11 or so seems easy. The last 3 ramps up in difficulty maybe too quickly in my opinion. Would be better if they make the middle 4-5 a tad harder. I'll have to wait till we do it on alts with much lower ilvl gear whether the first 11 bosses are tuned correctly or not.
Galakras is quite punishing as far as I've heard. Iron Juggernaut seems to be the ji-kun. The rest seems fine (besides the dino which was bugged).

Take my judgement with a load of salt please, as i've not tried half the instance yet.
The tuning of ToT created the market that flex was aimed at, the tuning of SoO has just destroyed it.
Same old Blizz though, always one extreme to the other. (maybe they do it purely to regain subs that were lost during the period in question?)

With 545 what do you expect? Normal is tuned for about 515 if I remember from PTR.
Normal isn#t supposed to be difficult anyway that's what hard modes are for.
Despite the heaps of flaming bullshit being tossed around, it seems like Blizzard nailed it.
SoO normal is about as well-tuned as it gets for guilds that just recently killed Lei Shen normal. They'll have some challenge along the way, and a tough last boss (although I'd bet anything Garrosh gets nerfed fairly quickly).
Well done, Blizz.

Normal mode is always easy for geared people. With 2*14 bosses they can tune it so there's some bosses for everybody.
