The first boss looks simple

The first boss looks simple enough. Probably a gear check that might punish our tanks, but the mechanics seem easy. I think we have a shot at it.

Mark, Ben and I did the trash

Mark, Ben and I did the trash for rep. The trash at least was highly doable, which is a decent indication that the rest is, too.

That and our luck when we did bullshit clears of the first couple bosses in TOC makes me think that we can bust this thing out pretty easily. I really hope we can nail down a raid schedule after the holidays.

Eh, WoW ain't what it used to

Eh, WoW ain't what it used to be. Raids are closer to Black Temple post nerf (when we finally downed Illidan) than pre-nerf. we have the skills except for that ash guy, so we should be plowing through content shortly.

I didn't do all of BT with

I didn't do all of BT with you all, but what we did clear up to wasn't that hard. I assume the end bosses were. Hyjal wasn't hard except for Archimonde pre nerf. Naxx was easy but it was supposed to be. Ulduar is fun and challenging. ToC was meh, but there are still some crap fights. Only 4 bosses available in ICC so we shall see.

Also, its hard to come up with all new mechanics and players are much smarter than the MC days. Yeah its easier to get gear, but the knowlege base is much better.

Illidan pre-nerf was

Illidan pre-nerf was considered the only "hardcore" challenge in BT; Sunwell and Naxx 40 were bothmaxxored extreme, something we'll never see again. I love ulduar, probably my favorite raid ever, but it pales in comparison to the diffculty of old. The hard mode mechanic might give us some cool stuff from time to time, but honestly I didn't care much for them when they were fun and unique in Ulduar, now that they have devolved into "menu toggle boss health and damge"... yeah. meh.

I am guessing that Lich King will be pretty hard, but they have a new vision for end game that is far more inclusive. It's not a 100% bad thing, it is just different.
