There’s nothing at all wrong with going back and doing legacy raids and other content. The achievement system, cosmetic rewards and titles, and most recently transmogrification all serve to reward that playstyle. There’s also a lot to be said for just being able to revisit old locations, for the sake of nostalgia or getting to experience them for the first time, without needing to find a like-minded group. As Rygarius noted, we’re committed to making sure that we don’t disrupt players’ ability to engage in that gameplay.

Without getting into the math, our goal is to make sure that if Kael’thas’s Pyroblast does damage equal to 10% of your maximum health today, it will take off no more than 10% of your health post-squish. And if you kill Onyxia in 30 seconds today, you’ll be able to kill Onyxia in 30 seconds post-squish.

Watcher, on a forum question about soloing legacy content

I am not sure where I stand on this.  On the one hand, it can feel a bit cheesy to go back and slam-dunk level 60 raids with your purple equipped level 90 character.

On the other hand, that cheesy feeling never stopped me!

40 people for just this guy?

Or our group.  Roll on with the status quo I guess!
