Following this post by Tigole on the US forums, a Blizzard representative - Aeus - made the following comment about further planned changes to the raid content of The Burning Crusade:

We're going to be making some changes to trash mobs in Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep, to make them a bit easier, slower to respawn, and provide some greater incentive to killing them.

We'll be continuing to tune and re-tune dungeons and encounters, but currently these are the two we're most concerned with and will be focusing on.

Deffinately a step in the right direction again, considering the amount of complaints that has been given regarding the high level instances in BC.

    There's a distinction between doing complete content first, and doing buggy/unfinished/poorly tuned content first.

    Granted, it's fun to do something first when the only competitive nature of PvE is the bragging rights of first kills(racing to spawns is a thing of the past due to instances, since everyone has access to the same content at the same time), but when you bang your head against a wall - not because your strategy isn't clicking, but instead because a mob isn't properly tuned - it becomes stale very quickly.

    Anyone that did Blackwing Lair the first few days it was out knows firsthand; that was not fun at all to be stuck at a gate that wouldn't open. Anyone that did Ouro or C'Thun before they were properly tuned knows - those two encounters weren't very fun. *After* they were tuned, C'Thun was a great example of an execution-based encounter where everyone doing their job meant you won, and was great.

    What do you think; 25 people x 40 hours a week x 20 days a month x 12 months a year is less costy than a guild that runs it for free ? Even paying their monthly fee ? Geared / experienced ?

    Hell maybe I would see it as an 'honor' to do this the first time, might get bored the 2nd or hilarious the 3rd, don't know what you're complaining about..

    Blizzard needs to test their content on the PTR first so nihilum and the other big guilds will not be the beta testers for their new content
