So Taepsilum on the WoW forums stated some changes about challange modes and heroics, most notably making heroics more difficult than MoP.

What do you guys think? Will the QQ of Cata begin again? How many of you hate the idea of Heroics being difficult again and how many are all for the use of CC's and tough boss fights?Having said that, the current planned difficulty scheme for 5mans at max level is Normal, Heroic and Challenge mode.
Right off the bat, we can clearly say that WoD heroics will be much harder than MoP heroics.
EDIT : here is some speculation about how the new gearing system might work if they up the difficulty of heroics. Ordered most easy to most difficult from top to bottom.
Scenarios --> Prepare you for normal dungeons.
Normal Dungeons --> Prepare you for LFR and Heroics
Heroic Scenarios --> Prepare you for LFR and Heroics -Requires Pre-made group.
LFR--> Prepare you for Heroics and Normal Raiding.
Heroics --> Prepare you for Normal Raiding and Challange Mode. -Requires Pre-made group.
Challange Mode --> Prepare you for Normal Raiding and Mythic. -Requires Pre-made group. (Probably will only drop heroic Ilvl loot.)
Normal Raiding -->Has a flex feature installed, harder than LFR but easier than Mythic.
Mythic Raiding --> Most Difficult Raiding difficulty.
Keep in mind WoD will actually have normal dungeons at level cap, so yes there will be an alternative now to heroics. So basically if you don't want to do heroics do normal dungeons instead. LFR and Heroics drop similar gear levels and will prepare you for normal raiding.
