very excited to hear about the difficulty of true blizzlike!
oh no I read the beggining of the post and I was like YESS but then I read "on burning crusade classic" :(
People will still complain when the raids are cleared in a day anways.
Do you think during the down time of PTR they hang around with Captain Placeholder?
The ever-challenging balance:
Difficulty means many things in raid content. Its not the same as it was due to the player base change, the availability and playability of the game, and the knowledge of the game all change the difficulty of raiding. Making the raids more difficult wouldn't change the outcome of them. People have the information and know what class/professions/ etc to chose to be the most effective at raiding. If you want to focus on raiding then you would pick something that was known to be strong in raids like BM hunter. Its about the style of play you want to pursue. Even in shadowlands there is meta. Every expansion has meta classes. The only difference here is we already know what classes are good and bad.
