    The easiest raid boss of each expansion?

    My list on the easiest raid encounters:

    Vanilla: Venoxis
    TBC: Attumen
    Wrath: Flame Leviathan
    Cata: Halfus

    Pandaland: ??? Never have or will play it.

    What's your list look like?

    assuming you mean based on relative strength of players at time of release rather than absolute ease:

    Lucifron
    Chess Event
    Anything in the first 4 wings of the awful naxxramas re-release
    Morchok
    Guardian Kittens

    Too bad you won't play Mists of Pandaria, its the best expansion since The Burning Crusade.

    Good call on Chess being easy. Normally I would 100% agree with you but the fury of a chin strap pug taking the king and wiping us still burns. Attumen was simply stand on the mother f@&$ing tank!!! People got that instruction easier.

    Fair enough. If anything I picked chess because attumen was almost too obvious of an answer and I wanted to be a special snowflake.

    BC: Gruul
    Wrath: Flame Leviathon

    Have you ever been shot in the head?

    Yes this is an actual question and if you're smart you will see where I'm going with this.

    Didn't raid in Vanilla or TBC

    Wrath: Hmm, I'd have to say Twin Valks was SUPER easy once you had a modicum of gear.
    Cata: Omnitron was easy.
    Panda: So far? Spirit Kings

    I'm sorry, I just find it legitimately hilarious. I spat out my drink when I read your original post.

    I must sound so rude but that's just too funny and it explains so much.

    Vanilla: Wasn't around
    BC: Chess, managed to solo it a few times before nerfs, can be made harder with a bad group though, which in that case Attumen
    WotLK: Noth the Plaguebringer
    Cata: Morchok early on, Ultraxian if gear wasn't an issue
    MoP: Spirit Kings normal or Jin'rokh... hmmm... hard to pick

    EDIT:
    Special Edition: Easiest heroic/hardmode bosses for each expansion since implemented:
    WotLK: Gunship
    Cata: Tie between Shannox and Morchok
    MoP: Jin'rokh

    Stone Guards were annoying at 460 gear if your tanks had no idea what they were doing. God that was awful.

    That's laughable. The raids have been top notch, but overall the expansion has been pretty crappy. Shows in the subscription numbers too - largest sub drops in the history of WoW.

    Uh, vanilla easiest boss by far was pre-buff Shazzrah. By the time the expansion was done.... hm, Golemag probably the easiest of the 40-mans.

    You should familiarize yourself with this list. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fallacies

    Never knew 8 million subscribers was a low number.

    Hey Jeff, what competition had 8 million subscribers?

    Oh?

    No one?

    Okay then, what game has about 3 million or even 2.5 million?

    ...no one again?

    Wait wait wait, are you saying no other game who is only subscriber based, or even free to play games, has even a quarter of WoWs subscribers?

    That can't be right, Jeff! It can't be!

    (Psst, subscriber numbers don't indicate quality either)

    Can we kill the subscriber talk in this thread and just keep it on topic now?

    Thanks.

    League of Legends has ~30 million active players last I heard.

    Also, 8 million is quite a lot. But 1.3 million losses in three months is also a lot. And tells a lot about the perceived quality of the game.
