GW's root problem is that it tries to appeal to both hardcore (PvP and expert PvE) players like us, and also to casuals. Casual players -- those with a few hours a week to play -- have no hope of H/Hing the campaigns. And if they get frustrated, they quit, and if they quit, they aren't buying new chapters, and that means ANet loses business.
And due to the lack of a monthly fee, GW has a strong appeal to casuals.
Honestly, I think ANet needs to make some parts of Normal Mode slightly easier for the casuals, and make Hard Mode and end-game content challenging (as opposed to just boring "bigger, faster" monsters) for the hard cores. That may be what they're trying to do... but it still needs a bit a tuning, especially on missions that create "roadblocks" for casuals -- like Gates of Madness, Aurora Glade, and such.

My advice to you is to hero hench it, believe me you would be amazed at how easy it is if you do, the only tricky part in the mission is closing the rifts parts, the advice given here will help you on what is the best builds to get through the mission and defeat Shiro.
PuG's can be unpredictable, I've never had to do the mission with them so I'm not sure how hard it is otherwise.

I miss when pugs were occasionally good.
All the same, Shiro isn't quite THAT bad, and I find that Wild Blow is handy on him here, just like it is in Factions.
Also, the litch is waaaaaaay to easy, so Shiro is the only real boss here. Honestly, have you ever been a fire ele and watched the damage you do to the litch? Guy must be made of paper... Or a dried corpse, I guess.

I did it on first attempt (NM) with my Deverish in an average PUG. I am saying average because only 2 people had done it before and rest, including me were attempting it for first time. So i did exactly what party leader asked me to do. I got my tanking skills on, engaged Shrio, monk stayed at the safe distance and began to heal me. I kept Shiro busy while rest of the team took care of other things. No one in our team died even once.

edit: You will of course need level 20 pets on your heroes; we had an army of Black Moas.
