    Rank SoO bosses by difficulty (Heroic)

    Rank the heroic bosses you've killed in SoO according to their difficulty for you
    I've only killed 2 so for me it is Fallen protectors-Immerseus from hard to easier

    10 man easiest to hardest IMO

    Norushen <--bar far the easiest, 3 shot him with first attempt wiping at 1% due to enrage. 0 new mechanics to learn
    Immersues
    Protectors
    Galakaras/Jugger
    General Nazgrim
    Sha
    Shaman

    Blizzard did a pretty good job of keeping them in order of difficulty already. Just progress through as normal and you should be good.

    Thanks to Mythriz for the sig!

    7/14H 10 man in personal experience easiest to hardest (so basically # of wipes per boss minus stupid wipes):

    Norushen
    Fallen Protectors
    Immerseus
    Galakras
    Nazgrim
    Sha (we got this relatively easy for whatever reason...)
    Iron Juggernaut

    I'd say that each guild will probably have their own experiences, some fights just suit different guilds differently.

    From what I've done on 25 man I personally think it's

    Immerseus
    Iron Juggernaut *
    Fallen Protectors
    Galakaras
    Norushen **
    Sha of Pride
    Dark Shaman
    Nazgrim

    *Iron Juggernaut: Seriously, If you have the dps for protectors with a sane amount of healers you could 8 or 9 heal IJ and beat the enrage while not really having to worry about any coordination beyond stacking survival CD's. We had our best dps swap to an alt healer and it made a night and day difference and a boring easy kill.

    **Norushen: Probably the boss that gets the easiest with increased gear though, so may be a good bet before Galakaras for guilds just now getting to it

    The kill order we did was 1,2,3,5,6,4,7,8. Had clean attempt enrage wipes on Protectors and Norushen, since then dps has scaled so well with gear that there's a lot of leeway with strats and execution, hoping Malkorok gives up some performance pressure this week though.

    I do think that you'll be pretty safe just following the order, though obviously different groups will have different issues which some bosses may accentuate. However there are a few bosses whose mechanics can be entirely trivialised with the right strategy. The ones that stand out are Dark Shamans with the three tank three heals strategy and Iron Juggernaut where you three heal and then allow yourself to remain knocked back during the siege phase.

    Spoils of Pandaria I'd say is a fight where gear will make it ridiculously easy, Norushen would also be similar (though to be fair, it's generally an easy fight even if you don't out gear it).

    My experience on 25 heroic that I've done

    Immerseus (basic)
    Fallen Protectors (interrupt, phase Sun and He at the same time, move with sha sear, win)
    Iron Juggernaut (Just sit 200 yards away during the siege mode)
    Galakras (Nothing too hard)
    General Nazgrim (Tuned harder than Galakras but not complicated)
    Norushen (Tough DPS check and tons of adds to control)
    Sha of Pride (Lots going on)
    Dark Shamans (Getting the melee group to not die takes practice)
    Malkorok (Tuned pretty tough)

    10/14hc in 10man now.

    I would rank them so far as:

    norushen
    galakras (both got nothing new to the fight, and are just about keeping a cool head and do your job)
    immerseus
    general
    sha
    shamans
    malkorok
    spoils

    Now on thok, and so far this has shown incredibly more difficult then the previous fights.
    Can only imagine the next ones to be harder. Prob from what I read, siegecrafter-paragons-garrosh.

  11. #11
    We're 10/14 in with two nights worth of pulls on Thok.

    From easiest to hardest in my opinion:
    Norushen
    Shamans(3tanking)
    Immerseus
    Galakras
    Malkorok
    Protectors
    Nazgrim
    Juggernaut
    Sha
    Spoils
    Thok

    Spoils would've probably been easier if we had some of our better suited dps attend, we'll see how the first rekill goes this reset.

    As for Thok, after 8hours of banging our heads against it with no real progress it feels like it'll never go down.

  12. #12
    Haven't tried the last two yet.

    Hardest (gaps in the list denote large jumps in subjective difficulty):
    Siegecrafter (by far)

    Thok
    Malkorok
    Dark Shaman

    Spoils
    Sha of Pride

    Galakras
    Fallen Protectors
    Iron Juggernaut
    General Nazgrim
    Norushen
    Immerseus

  13. #13
    Can't speak for garrosh (only gotten to second intermission) but so far:

    Paragons>Siege>Thok>Spoils>Malkorok>Dark Shamans>Sha of Pride>Nazgrim>Juggernaut>Galakras>Protectors>Norushen>Immerseus.
    This is considering our first kills where we were undergeared, though - a great deal of the bosses back then were dps checks (like Nazgrim).
    25 HC.

    Out of interest, why siege higher than paragons? Are you talking about normal? (considering the guild in your sig only has 10/14 norm).

    I'd just bundle imm, prot, noru, sha, galak, and general naz to easy tier.
    Jugg, shamans to med tier.
    Malkorok and onward hard tier.

    Immersius, Protectors, Norushen, Galakras
    Sha, Iron Juggernaut, 3 tank Dark Shamans, Nazgrim (And sha is probably the easiest of these 4, not sure what gives people trouble.)
    Malkorok and Spoils
    Thok
    Paragons (still haven't killed them, might put it the same as blackfuse if we wipe a couple hundred times)
    Siegecrafter
    Garrosh (Still no US 10 man kills)

    @ The poster above me. The difficulty jump between Malkork / Spoils to Thok is pretty big, and from Thok or Blackfuse it's another big jump.

    Don't know why ppl asses Shamans as that hard. 10man-wise 3 tanking/3 healing makes it's like one of easiests encounters in this tier. Juggernaut is also easy it only requires proper managment of raid cds. Imo Norushen>Jugger>Shamans>Nazgrim (really nothing happens here if u 3 heal and have good dps)>Immersus>Protectors>Galakras>Sha

    I'm guessing the vast majority of 10 mans do not have access to a third viable tank for shamans. For 25 man, it's also a clusterfuck either way.
