I'm fine with the Wrath model as long as it is the same loot in 10 and 25. I really disliked running 10s for more Emblems and a few BiS items. If the loot is the same as it is now but 25 has a higher ilevel, I would be all for it. The problem with that is you now have yet another level of gear. Justice, Heroics, Rep/Epic 5s, Valor, Crafted, LFR, 10s, 25s, 10H, 25H. I suppose you could remove the Justice and Valor gear and use those currencies solely for upgrading gear.
There's no real motivation to do 25s at the moment, aside from wanting to play with a larger group of people. 10s are easier to organize and coordinate, 25s demand a lot more, which a lot of people just aren't willing to put up with.
There's some servers that have very strong 25m raiding scenes, but those are sort of self-perpetuating. They keep themselves going simply by having been around for so long and being far ahead in progression. And meanwhile, you have servers like ER that can't really sustain that kind of scene. More people would just rather do 10s.
Something's gotta change! The whole 10/25 gear dealio that's happening in the asian servers right now... 25s have the EXACT same loot as 10s, just 4 ilvls higher (I think it's 4). It might help, but would it be enough? Dunno.
Either way, props for keeping on with 25s. More options are always nice. I know that can't be easy, especially on a server like this.
Myself, I think the game would be dramatically improved with the complete elimination of both raiding and PvP, though I do understand that this is a minority position.
I'm just back from a long dwarven hibernation, so I've had to read up in the GD threads to try and get a basic understanding of newer fundamental systems, to try and put the changes into some sort of context for myself. I'm not an active raider presently.
I've read thoughts on both sides with regards to benefits and drawbacks, but I'm not in a position to even have an educated opinion as I haven't raided since the Burning Crusade, and the majority of my experience comes from raiding in groups of forty.
I just wanted to post the information in a pertinent thread and quoted you for context. In hindsight that may appear like I was confronting you on your opinion. My apologies to you as that wasn't my intention.
It was meant more with a dash of humor, but I admittedly have a strange sense of humor. Tini can vouch for me on that one.
I will leave the discussion of the more serious aspects of the changes to you good folks. I've got to go play the part of the Lorax in Mount Hyjal and teach an old nemesis to embrace the Azeroth Arbor Festivus.
