Addons is still used by 100% of the raiding community. So now that blizzard doesnt count in the addon factor,,, it becomes even more easier to beat the content, making wow even more casual.
And that is about the crappiest way to make something 'casual' I have ever heard of.
Go online and find a mob by shifting through pages, download and unzip it, make sure to install it to the addons folder of your wow folder, then make sure it is up to date and activate it in you character selection screen. Oh and while you are there see what is out of date, log out then see if you can update them, if not, log back in, double check your out of date addons by clicking the left corner of your character screen, then log out, get back into your wow folder from your system programs folder, go down to add-ons, and just click delete, but make sure you don't just delete the folder, but all of its contents. Provided you can't just get a new addon that you searched for that will replace the out-of-date ones.
Beware of trackers or viruses.
I swear this is how Bliz can market authenticators, you need the add-ons to play, but they don't make them, and you might just get your account stolen unless you shell out more money. And even then if it gets stolen, oh well, you already signed your life away at least once a month when you resign the new user terms.
Yeah, much more casual than just logging on and trying to play for an hour.
Don't get me wrong, I love playing wow, but saying that ignoring add-ons makes it more casual is like saying that just because the rest of the world has sticks and you have a gun makes killing an elephant casual for the guys with sticks.

Actually it's called "Libel"... and only if it is fabricated, but hey, you are the admin.
