As if King and Prince wasn't in there!
Best fight aside from Akylios in my mind.
Good Top 10. Mine is pretty similar and is:
7. Prince Hylas
5. Rune King
Mightyquinn - Guardian Warrior - Rank 50
Nexilis - Threesprings
PF and rotp were pretty poor imho. In PF the RP first part was funny to do once but its easily the most annoying thing to do in the game every week at this point. Hell running a T2 for 1000th time is more interesting than that. 1st and 2nd boss were far too easy and simple. Especially the mead man, this must be the poorest raid level fight in the entire game. Altha I can deffinetely say that it feels like a silgern wannabe. Awareness/movement fight but falls short and at the end its not as fun and challenging as General Silg. was at release before all the class buffs and the cleansing nerf. Lord Twyl is great tho, but i do feel that the maze walls block far too much of what is going around - effect/season wise. I my self hadnt actually noticed up until ~a couple of weeks ago since i use my camera in a overview mode type way (kinda like those distant strategy game cameras).
on 20 mans.. ID had a few design issues. Lack of gear requirements (since T2 and T3 gear is basically the same) on some bosses lack of encounter progression (Ituziel for example would have been a lot better if he were to gain an extra ability ~mid-fight, same with the originally intended Maklamos fight) and most importantly non existent enrage timers that made things far too easy up to laethys. Enrage timers that would have slowed progression and prevented the wings from getting cleared on their opening days untill prople were able to finetune their setup and minimize healing/extra non required tanks) Maelforge especially was very poorly designed. The first part with the spires was very cinematic but beyond that...
oh yeah a list
no order and all based on release state difficulty (well maybe with the exception of greenie, after his hp buff)
Estrode (untill you figured there was an easy mode soul/combo)
RKM (mage tank)

On my last attempt at raiding, me and my guild managed to get Akylios to 24%. that fight was sooooo awesome , i actually got rushes of adrenaline when doing it. I have raided in other games and i cant think of any other time i have been that pumped in a raid. Freaking awesome fight!
Yeh cleared it 5/11 which was server and quite possibly region first.
Man, River of Souls is the forgotten raid of "Rift". No love for Alsbeth and her whacky crew.
Somehow, I also like(d) the battle against Rusila. Especially the atmosphere... ... and the "dum dum" (or whatever^^) of the Fortuna Fatalis' heartbeat. :]
