The brood room is two parts and it was ALL trash mobs. LOL Just because warlocks got to shine there doesn't mean they are not trash mobs. LOL!
Uh...if you really spent that much time in BWL then you know that the brood room consisted mainly of a non-stop grind to the boss, which involved less tanking than healing and mana conservation. You approached it completely differently from any other trash area. It was the first "gauntlet" type area in the game. Did you actually ever finish BWL?

Again I'd have to ask if you ever actually finished BWL...I cannot honestly conceive of how anyone could prefer MC. Not only was it shorter, but the time spent in the instance was almost 70% boss fights compared to MC's 20-25%. Nefarian alone took almost 20 minutes. Trash pulls are always boring but in MC they constituted the vast majority of the time spent in the instance. I can count on my hands how many pulls there were in BWL, in MC I can't even remember how many there were. The bosses were all tank-and-spank encounters in MC as well while in BWL each fight offered a unique mechanic which improved the quality of all the players in the raid and most importantly was fun to learn. Honestly you'd have to know literally nothing about the game or care absolutely nothing about the strategic element of raiding to prefer MC.

It really friking doesn't matter. Just stop complaining about games you don't like being to easy. NO ONE FRIKING CARES! This is what I hate about gamers. They constantly complain about **** they don't like. Then don't play the damn game.
QFT...very tiresome to hear these unwarranted complaints over and over again.
