Should there be a difference in softcap if you play 10-man instead of 25-man raids? With only 10-man gear it's very gimpish to go for the 140k survival points, with all the stamina gear I have I just barely reach it. In Sartharion+2 during the first phase sartharion only breaths for about 7k in normal hits. Is the softcap really set for 25-mans or should there not be any difference?

For most current content, 120k is a good soft cap for 10mans, and 140k is a good soft cap for 25mans. 170k or so is looking about right for 25man Ulduar.

If might help if a mouseover comment was added that gave this information.  Or even change it to be select "Heroics", "25-Naxx", "25-Uldar" or something similar with the number chosen based on the choise made.

There will be presets for this in Rawr v2.2 release, for just that reason.
