Day 1 - Firelands already cleared.

Firelands hasn't even been out for a whole day and a guild on our server has already downed Ragnaros. Is Firelands intended to be this simple? I haven't been actively raiding much but I don't remember seeing any raids ever cleared on patch day.
I seriously doubt it was cleared on the first day.

I like your goggles and beard, they're sexy. But I can post a screen shot or the guild's armory link if it's not against the Forum code of conduct.

It was, have you been on the forums at all?

It was cleared on the first day, in normal mode, by top tier guilds who have had months of practice on the PTR.

You're surprised?

2 things.

First: It's a normal mode clear, who cares. If heroic mode was cleared on the first day then we should all panic.

second: Lots of guilds practiced these bosses for months on the ptr.
Normal mode was cleared on day one by guilds that outgear the content completely, notice these are the same guilds that cleared some t11 bosses on the first day cata came out (That means they leveled to 85 and raided on the first day of cata.) Should it really surprise you the people that could level to 85, get enough gear to raid (They don't need as much gear.) then world first all the normal modes in the first week, and proceed to have sinestra (The normal firelands are tuned for 359 geared people) on farm for months before firelands are destroying the content they have already killed on the ptr?
I stand corrected.
However, I do believe noone got to test heroic mode. And I find it unlikely that even the top guilds will be able to get TOO far next week on heroic content just because of gear levels. But, then again the top guilds have pulled out amazing feats in very @*!@ty gear.
It's not that the top end guilds in the world are killing him that surprises me, it's that Aptitude was 3rd in the world to kill him, but I've been on all night and did not see the server first spam, and also Stormreaver hasn't been very high on progression since Impervious broke up. I'm just disappointed that it's been downed (even though it's just normal mode) the night it came out.

...in T11 heroic gear as well.
This happens to new content ever since blizzard invented the PTR.

These people who one shot firelands tonight have had firelands on farm for weeks on the PTR... who cares.

Amazing. You have nothing to do now that people that aren't you have cleared Ulduar.

This very same thing happened in Ulduar. And that was a magnificently tuned dungeon. Settle down; heroic modes are harder, blah blah.
Normal mode. nothing to care about.
Heroic like someone else said. then panic
It normal and those people who already cleared it practiced doing all the boss fights on the PTR so it's just another day for them.
