Nope, HP is about doubled and the damage output from the mobs have increased. in some cases, some trash that are strong became elites etc. The trash in 16 man normal is generally harder than 8 man hardmode..

TLR not worth running 16 man, run two 8 mans and save yourself the headache.

There is no reason to do 16 man.

my guild is 16 man and it sucks. I have no intention of breaking down to 8's. I don't mind if they give no incentive (selfishly I wish they would), but right now I feel punished for doing them. If you're going to make them harder, which they are, they need to give greater rewards. If they are going to give the same rewards, they need to be rebalanced.

Exactly, I love doing 16 mans too but it is just a pain atm and not worth it. 8 man just doesn't feel as epic as 16 man, not mention it has less social interactions but you do feel like a pretty tight unit.

I like the feel of playing with 7 other skilled players

16-man just isnt as much fun when you do not have 15 other skilled players playing the game with you.

But if the reward would be better than 8 man, people would play it nonetheless.
And I think 16 man is okay. Much better than 25 man in WoW.
There are many guilds with enough good players.

We do the 2 8 mans and it turns into drama over who is in what group. i wish we just did 16 but people love drama. I don't complain even though I get stuck with all the ones that can't move out of fire.

Yup, next thing you know. 16 man guilds split due to drama like these.
