Hello everyone! I was thinking... what is your favorite raid and why? Out of everything you have raided since 2004, is there one raid that stuck out as the coolest and most interesting? Whether it is because of the fantastic looking loot or the utterly stunning encounters? What was it?!
For me, hands down, without a shred of a doubt, it was ulduar. In my humble opinion Ulduar was the peak of WoW raiding, i have never seen anything as vast, beautiful, intriguing, and absolutely stunning as ulduar.
If we were to start off with boss encounters... where do i begin? The introduction was easy, but simply badass as you stormed the wall with your tanks and motorcycles, then you were greeted with a massive walking construct (XT) that provided a challenging yet entertaining fight... Then you enter the building and there is no words that describes the beauty of the place... this was perhaps the first raid to ever make me interested in the full lore of WoW, and the entire arc with the Titans, and algalon made me pray that blizzard revisits these sorts of things. No other raid provided that amount of stunning visuals. It was the first hard-mode introduced raid, and perhaps the last, and that is very unfortunate because if anything, ulduar was the raid i wanted to return to after i was bored with ICC or anything else. Oh, and let me not forget algalon, whom was a very challenging battle that provided you with the ability to experience full on lore with great voice acting and fantastic loot...
Oh the loot... even after i got my pally xmogged into full t8 warrior gear i still revisit ulduar for some of the stunningly designed gear! If you go and look back... i doubt you won't find atleast one peice of gear that you won't love the look of. From the intriguing shields, to the absurd spinning constellation-esc maces, nothing in the game has quite reached that standard in my opinion... and lets not forget about what is the most underused and under-appreciated legendary in the game... one that is both tough to get and extraordinarily good looking (in my opinion)
TL;DR- Ulduar is the best in my opinion, nothing even came close to matching it... sorry throne of thunder... the champion still reigns supreme.
-Naxxramas- both lvl 60 and WOTLK (Who could hate patchwerk and his insatiable charm?)
-Throne of thunder
-Temple of Ahn'qiraj (i hope i spelt that right... but that starting event was epic!)
