The raids in classic were never meant to be min maxed to the point where you did thousands of DPS. They were designed to be done with tier 2 gear and maybe a few potions.
We wiped early into aq last night and to be honest, the rest of the raid was more fun and exciting. We one shot everything after that and had a 4 phase cthun. The fights you actually had to pay attention to and do mechanics like kill the worms on fankriss. Run out of battleguard’s bladestorm. Avoid Ouro sweeps. Actually put on max nature resist gear and pre pot GNPP for princess.
The raids are still easy as hell but I think it’s the perfect difficulty for classic. Just engaging enough to not be boring, and just easy enough to not be frustrating. World buffs are not mandatory or needed to clear the content.
