This made me lol. Ok so the difficulty of WotLK isnt as hard as TBC was when it first came out. This is essentially a good thing... Let me justify it by saying do you remember what it was like seeing your t3 epics being replaced by outland greens? that was a huge punishment for the time spent raiding naxx and aq. With the late addition of sunwell and the nerfs that let everyone see the content, the gear you got technically could last you until 80 or be replaced slowly along the way. (not omfg this green is better than my t3 pants...) so they fixed that.Originally Posted by Gron
The content will get more difficult. Sunwell showed us what Blzz can bring to the table, and I believe that if top guilds didnt have the test realm time to work on bosses I dont think they would have gotten them until shortly before the xpac. That is no fun. Cut Blizz some slack. They have a larger player base than you think and not all of them are full clearing naxx and maly 25. think of the poor low pop servers that have like 3k people on them. If Ulduar sucks then yeah Blizz went soft.
Saying it needed to be initially difficult is elitist. Give the casuals a chance to feel special and give them somethign to pay for. No one wants to farm all day or miss the wow lore by not being able to complete parts of the game ( initially at least.)
Sorry for the TLDR
