WoW was 2 months from release to the first Onyxia kill. Slightly less than that for the first few bosses in Molten Core going down.

Are we a week past launch and the released content has already been beaten?

You can't directly compare SWTOR to the release of WoW in 2004. "Hardcore" raiding was an alien concept to everyone but the most diehard EQ fans in 2004. Now, thanks to 7 years of training in WoW, there is a subset of SWTOR players who made it their business to level to 50 as fast as humanly possible and beat the content.

Aside from putting up hard barriers to block access to the content (Sunwell-style) or putting in ridiculous gear-checks, there's not a whole lot they can do to stop them. I would wait and see if the content they put forward post-release is just as easy.

PS: The hardest part of Molten Core and Onyxia was getting 40 people together that didn't drool on their keyboard. Hindsight is 20/20, and there was nothing remotely difficult about any of the encounters in Molten Core or Onyxia. Raiding was just new to the overwhelming majority of WoW players at that time.

So, is that a "yes"? I honestly don't know as I haven't even gotten to 50 yet. Have all the operations been fully cleared?

^ This is what 95% of the people that joined the forums in Feb of 2011 do.

Yay, look! Generalizations that don't contribute to the thread!

I'm correct though, you are wrong.

As far as I know, 4/5 Nightmare has been done in Eternity Vault.

Even so? Do you know anyone or hang with anyone who has?

I dont see what the importance of this? This isnt wow from 2004 or wow from 2011 so who cares? Are you having fun playing the game?? Have you completed all the end game content??

Have you even got to 50 yet?

If anyone has then let them worry about finding something to do.

Yes. <Condemned> on Port Nowhere has already cleared:

8 Man Hutt Hospitality Normal:
World Rank #1 Clear.

8 Man Eternity Vault Normal:
US Rank #1 Clear.

8 Man Eternity Vault Hard:
4/5. All US Rank #1 Clears.

16 man Annihilator Droid was bugged last week and unkillable - we'll see, after the patch, if the issue has been resolved.
