It would take a lot more time.
But yeah, as I've heard, it's a lot more suited for casuals nowadays (not sure about the raiding part though), but imo it's also more fun than it used to be. I used to play WoW a lot some 4 or 5 years ago, I played the trial version this year and it was fun as hell, really got into it.
The upcoming expansion looks like shit though.
They took cut the leveling xp required. The player can also do things to level quicker as well. For example if you have an 85 already, you can just buy all of the BOA gear for the experience boost. Also being part of a guild at a certain guild level boosts xp.

End game raiding is still difficult. They just nerf it a lot when it gets closer to the next raid. I stopped playing about a month ago but I was doing the Firelands raid when I stopped.

This should be in my Video Game Rage thread!lol I heard this was one of the hardest RPG's out there. Hearing you got pwned in the tutorial must mean this game is merciless.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

I've played a lot of games, and very few have I stopped playing based on difficulty, and this one isn't really "hard", but.. well I'll explain.

The entire objective (minus going through the bosses/levels) is souls. Each time you kill a person, you collect X amount of souls. If you die, your pile of souls stays on the ground right where you died at, and if you reach them, you get your souls back. If you die before you reach them, you lose all your souls. All the enemies/monsters re spawn when you die and you have to start all the way back.

There are checkpoints few (very few) and far between. I died right on a boss, this means I have to fight every single monster to get back to the boss, about a 15 minute treck back to the boss. The bosses are insanely difficult, so the game plays like this:

1. Reach checkpoint.
2. Die 10-15 minutes later and all your souls drop to the ground
3. fight your way back to your souls where you died (or die before you get there and lose all your souls)
4. Die again
5. Rinse and repeat until you finally beat that boss/area
6. die again in another section and repeat all the above again and again and again until you pass that section

The game isn't "hard" it's just extremely frustrating and not worth the trouble of actually playing it. You fight the same mosnters over and over and over again down the same path over and over and over again to 'maybe' reach your souls (if you don't die on the way back to your body) just to fight that same hard/difficult monster again and to die again, and have another nice 15 minute fight back to the boss if you can live through it.

The difficulty/challenge of the monsters is fun and enjoyable, but the game is designed to straight piss you off, and is not worth playing it in my opinion.

Wow! That does sound bad. I was thinking of getting this game but after reading that I think I'll pass.

Thats sounds proper shit.

What'll probably happen, is I'll rent it during the annual video game drought, over winter and spring.

Until then, I'll revisit some games and see if they sit better with me, because first time round, they sucked. eg. Dead Island, BF3, Drakes, Batman, Crysis, Assassins Creed, Skyrim.

Gears was sweet. MW3... I loved the campaign as usual. Spec ops was always fun too. BF3 is where the online play is at!

I never played Resistance though. I may end up trying it out.

Resistance: Fall of Man was fantastic. The online was extremely awesome. Probably mt favourite FPS of all time. It's an old game and dead now though.

Hated R2 and R3, they ruined the franchise imo. FoM was original, R2 and R3 were just so... bleh.
