Work with me here.. think back WAY BACK to the beginning of Wrath. Back when (ever so briefly) the heroics were hard. Not all of them mind you.. but some of them were tricksy. I can remember LOATHING Azjol-Nerub. That instance, specifically the last boss, had my number and bullied me practically into tears. At the end there.. when people would sign up for a random.. how many times did you get Halls of Reflection only to see 1-2 of the DPSers.. and even sometimes a tank or a healer drop out of the dungeon.
See, in the past, .. some heroics were harder than others. There were some which were dreaded.. there were some bosses that PUGs just couldn’t -get-. There were… at least for a while until their gear overpowered the boss.
So, now here we are at the beginning of Cataclysm.. and right now everyone’s undergeared.. and all the heroics are hard. I mean I’ve been hearing that it’s common to wipe on the first boss about 6 times before the puggers (or guildies) get frustrated and drop group. BUT!!! Soon we’ll have the gear.. and I have to wonder… in that heroic you’re in now.. where you’ve wiped 10 times to the boss.. what if it’s because you’re really in the “hard” heroic?
