I'm quite ancient like very very ancient done every HC tier with the exception of MoP since I retired there in all of my experience of high tier raiding it would be Heroic LK in my honest eyes next to AC Heroic in Cata.
Heroic Ragnaros also gets a mention in there.

Not even going to mention Shitastic Madness like such an underwhelming fight.
Ragnaros HC before nerfs was probably hardest. On other hand Kaelthas was pain in the ass too.
In overall difficulty, T15 seems to be extremly tough. Horridon first week was like WAAAAAAAAAT, this is second boss?? Then more 100 wipes on Council were fun too.
Four Horsemen need a mention, it was a roadblock of roadblocks that few got beyond. Shame that by that point, BC was right around the corner.
Kael'thas, Lich King, M'uru, Ragnaros, Lei Shen. Take your pick :P
On patch day the Illidan Queue boss is by far the most difficult in game, seconded only by the elevator and Orgrimaar Lag. (Download Teamviewer app for your computer and smartphone, never queue again)
I am sure that has something to do with the fact that they were terribly broken and/or required insane class stacking. Their mechanics are NOTHING compared to anything we have now!Vanilla - Four Horseman and Cthun are the hardest bosses in the game during current progression. Hands down.
And people that say mu'ru... I am sure it was hard. However, the hard part was just the pure numbers, yes? High damage and high dps requirements. Nothing else. I wouldn't call that a hard or good fight, I would call it terribly tuned.
And Kael'thas....? Really. -.-
That fight was broken beyond belief. Also it was designed to be unkillable. That does make a fight quite difficult.
Ulduar, Yogg 0
I only did LK 10 heroic, and found that we wiped on him far less than PP 25 heroic, but the 10man pp version was far easier than 25man ...... so in WOTLK id have to say PP25hc was my hardest encounter.
Rag 10 heroic, took us something like 350 wipes, it was one of the more difficult fights, and it was incredibly boring to boot.
Vanilla for me was Cthun, didnt do too much in Naxx, and in TBC, Lady Vashj, again, didnt really go past 1/2 way in black temple due to the fact my pc was incredibly crap back then.
AND JUST AN FYI that's the 20% buff i believe. Thank you.

How is he possibly the hardest. Did you do yogg 0 during progression?
Also just for the record I'm not saying Heroic Lich King was not hard, I just don't consider him the hardest.

I haven't done a whole lot of raiding, but from what I've done, Yogg-Saron.
I remember reading somewhere that Blizzard themselves rate Yogg a difficulty rating of 9/10 in terms of fight mechanics.
Best part of this thread is where the guy from Paragon gives his input, then basically gets LOL'd at by a random.
I respect that, Heroic Lich King was hard as hell. Agreed entirely.
Haven't touched WoW in almost 3 years...I'm happy to say I'm finally off it. I did just pick up GW2 though...

[QUOTE=Azyl;20906517]That person downed it in june, 3 months after world 1st. I downed it world 10th with Blood Legion and I have been in the guild for over 4 years. Please move on and stop trying to be a smart ass. Thanks you.

Hmm... I didn't know March and June were the same month. Perhaps you should do your research more.
