My post on the matter can be found here: http://funingames.net/2011/01/raiding-i ... ter-click/

Now, about the question itself. I think that in the vast majority of Cataclysm encounters -- raids in particular, but I think the same is true to a degree for heroic encounters too -- are getting easier by some factor other than gear. You may disagree on that point, perhaps, but if so why?

Now the obvious answer besides gear is just practice. Practice makes perfect and all that. But why is it that certain encounters start out feeling almost impossible. You seem to be hitting your head against a brick wall, unable to make even a dent in the progression of this encounter. Depending on how long you go through that phase, it may even begin to feel a bit disheartening and then... Then progress is made. It starts to feel possible. You down it.

A little later, even just a week or two later, you can't imagine ever having difficulty on such an easy encounter. Anyone wiping to this must be a noob!

What happened to get from one point to another? I've proposed a theory, but certainly keen to hear others!

Had a very good response, I think Ung. :)

Link you provided is broken though, so for convenience here's a working version: Right Here.

Hope other responses are yet to come! :)
