Does anyone also not remeber it was like 6months or more into naxx classic wow befor it was finally cleared...jeez at that point tbc was on the way and only a handful of guilds in the world had it cleared rofl...so tell me how wotlk was the hardest of them all. PLEASE!
I'm assuming you've never stepped foot in a heroic raid?

Edit: Btw, having to farm countless hours for restist gear/potions is NOT difficult, its time consuming. There is a difference.

Edit2: Just so you know, I'm not saying that vanilla was easy, I'm saying that just because it took 6 months in vanilla doesn't mean its necessarily more difficult (Btw 0 light took about 4 months with significantly more guilds attempting it, and with the top guilds having MUCH more incentive to get world firsts).

Irony.

Some people are obviously still stuck in the "grindfest = hard game" mindset. Too much time spent on Korean MMO's I suspect

I dunno. I have only been playing since some friends got me to finally take the plunge after Cata dropped, so I don't have any frame of reference concerning the previous game.
I've been having a ton of fun for about 5 months now. I have used the DX11 config since the start, and have noted the fps increase. Everything else is just plain fun for me. I don't have any of the drama or hurt feelings that go along with memories of earlier times I guess.
Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the frost buffs. I had people telling me for awhile that I should have gone arcane or fire, but they tend to say this right before they start having problems holding aggro after I get 10 FoF charged lances in a row due to the FF orb triggers

Loving 4.1-- I'm really looking forward to 4.2, Firelands looks amazing.

ZA and ZG are really fun.

Even though my main is a Mage, I've been having an absolute blast with Frost DK 2H. So fun. 50k Oblit crits and NS stacking is hilariously overpowered.

Those ripple effects are in DX9 mode and even on mac... The benefit of DX11 is a massive fps increase
