One of the most annoying parts of both Burning Crusade and Cata was the fact that to be able to run heroics you had to gear up heavily first. Heroics the Wrath way… a way to gear up your max level character and then go raid or do challenge modes makes much more sense and will bring me back into the game with a heavier amount of play.
Sure most of my level capped characters could run a heroic right now in Cata, but the culture around running heroics is different than it was in Wrath. It’s not acceptable for you to not know the instances because you’re returning to the game or just a fresh 85. I don’t understand that.
This is a welcome change, especially as I level my future Monk.
