Raid Updates for 4.2

Community
With the upcoming content patch, 10 and 25-person Normal mode raid encounters will be receiving a comprehensive set of tuning adjustments to decrease their difficulty.

These changes will allow players, groups, and guilds who have yet to experience the content in Blackwing Descent, Bastion of Twilight, and Throne of the Four Winds an opportunity to do so.

With the addition of a new tier of armour and weapons, we want to make the previous tier more accessible and so we are making item level 359 gear purchasable for Justice points in the upcoming content patch.

Read the updated patch notes here to see the current list of changes:

Please note that all adjustments are subject to change based on the current 4.2 testing on the PTR.

I don't PvE so I don't care, but it's a real shame that TotalBiscuit will stop doing Azeroth Dailies because of this.

The secret behind having fun in a game is by actually doing things yourself and not get it served to you on a plate. By the way normals are not even hard to PuG 10/12 atm, 12/12 with a bit of coordination.

I learned to play while trying to get in to Molten Core runs back in Vanilla. If you couldn't perform you where not wanted. Now if you can't perform it's because the game is too hard and not because you suck... There are hardly any hard roles left in the game either

Why not introduce multiple difficulty levels rather then changing it for everyone? Just make them something like:

-PuG-able easy
-Ye average player
-Little challenging
-"Normal"
-Challenging
-Difficult
-Impossible

Or something of the like.

But nerfing everything is just wrong in my opinion :-(

this is just pure %#@* i mean seriously blizz you dont need to nerf content to the crappy %#@* players level and instead let the %#@* player get to the level of the game, just cus you pay to play it that dosent make it so you can see every content, i am sick of this attitude from you blizz with your nerfing. i am kinda of an hardcore player and i think its too easy even heroics arent hard so stop doing it blizz!

Seriously.. you just nerf raids cause pugs, or beginners can not get them down.. i though cataclysm was the expension where it was going to be fun.. not being nerf the hell down like WOTLK though you guys said on BLIZZCON that you will not make it like WOTLK :S i am really confused.. it seems that blizz is not stay what the promised us.. no way theres gone be challange if things get nerfed each time just to get pugs, lowbies happy.. mostly the younger people i guess..

oh well great job.. another nerf

well if you nerf things out.. nerf Druids threats.. we are way to OP with that but ye.. talk to alot of GM´s still not fix

Normal mode raids should be easy enough for random pugs to complete, but should only ever drop blue 359 item level gear.

Heroic mode raids should be bloody difficult, more so than now, and drop epics.

That way the casual masses get to experience the content, and the small number of true hardcore players get the challenge that they want.

Everyone calling themselves "hardcore" need to wake up, smell the cheese. You're getting firelands, go do current content. This game is for EVERYONE, Allowing these so called "lesser" players to be able to raid old content with ease and not just kill the first boss, they pay like you do. Jesus, it's just a game. chill the f*ck out!
