    It was the last raid of the expansion. I'm not trying to play semantics about what ended story versus what ended the expansion.

    This is very true but by definition the amount of players still playing now shedloads more of them will have fought the final boss of MoP because of LFR. The amount of players who even got to the final bosses of Vanilla, TBC or even Wrath was much less percentage of overall players than now.

    Cata and MoP the final boss has been 'experienced' by a massive percentage of overall players compared to the others

    Therefore its impossible to come up with a true reflection on how good the final bosses are, unless u dont allow anyone who did LFR to participate ofc.

    Sunwell by far, pre nerf's it was hard as shit, it's a beautiful zone and has beautiful music, still is, I was also at the top of my game and height of experience in SW, I still solo it weekly just because I love and miss the place (alongside solo'ing TK/SSC/BT and so on also) I'm incredibly proud of my M'uru pre-nerf kill and KJ.

    I wasn't raiding properly during ICC or DS so I can't really say much about them apart from casual stuff in ICC, but I still prefer Sunwell by just an edge.

    SoO is not bad, wing 3 is pretty cool, only doing LFR currently so can't say much about wing 4, should really start doing flex...TOO MANY ALTS!

    For me it was a hard choice, I picked ICC over Sunwell because it was a longer raid and the Lich King was my favorite villain who I always wanted to fight in WoW.

    Curious to see how many people actually pick Dragon Soul. :-P
    Black Temple... Not sure why, but I never thought of Sunwell as the end of expansion raid... I wasn't really into that hardcore of raiding at the time, so BT was the last raid I actually made any progression in before WotLK released. Only did trash and a boss or two in Sunwell when it was current.

    Didn't Blizzard originally mean for BT to be the final raid? Blizzard didn't want Sunwell to be released in BC, but people were clearing/farming Black Temple too quickly (much faster than Blizzard anticipated), so something had to go in and fill that gap because Wrath was still far away.

    I may be mistaken and can't quote it directly because it's been a long time, but I swear I think I read a blue post along those lines once.

    They released 3 tiers worth of raid content (7 raid instances) within 4 months after BC was released.

    People who voted sunwell like me should admit it was just nostalgia. Yes it had beautiful atmosphere, but the raid encounter mechanics were shit compared to what we have now. It was just simple mechanics with hard execution. 80% of the instance you don't even have to move as dps lol

    I don't remember exactly how it happened, but yeah, I'm pretty sure BT was the "last" raid and then SW was added. Kind of like RS in WotLK.
