    Lei Shen, Durumu, Elegon (all HC).

    Worst bosses are obviously all other last bosses: Garrosh, Sha of fear, Will of the Emperor, Shekzeer, for being a glorified uber-timesinks designed for only waste as much time as possible.

    I voted for Lei Shen, Sha of Pride, and Horridon. These fights last a long time but there is so much attention to detail in how intricate they are. Granted, I've only done them on LFR difficulty (except Horridon), these fights are really fun and creative to me.

    Nice poll! Good to be able to vote on several bosses, as well!

    - Elegon - Really fun fight and tuned tightly. It was a real challenge the fight times around, pushing the limits of our raid. Sure, the fight becomes a joke with more gear, but still, great boss overall.
    - Lei Shen - perhaps the best boss in MoP. Lots of stuff happening, but you don't get the idea you are hitting a wall. Really rewards coordination and individual effort.
    - Siegecrafter - another boss that rewards coordination and really fun mechanics as well! Will be the most difficult boss in Siege whne the dust settles.

    Mostly normal mode raider here.

    Lei Shen was definitely most enjoyable for me. Hard enough for last boss, but not frustrating. Individual responsibility and teamwork at same time. Some RNG, but scripted as well-oiled machine.
    Really felt good both progressing on it, and killing it.
    Old Gods made me do it.

    Unfortunately I didn't play while ToT was current, but Siegecrafter has been my favorite so far. Garrosh was pretty lackluster, the transition phases leave something to be desired.

    Siege is awesome because i'm a hunter and i can provide some raid utility. I also like Malkorok because it's a fun mechanic and it drops a BIS weapon lol.

    I actually did like Will of the Emperor, even if it didn't have much.

    Elegon and Durumu. I do LFR just to watch people fail on them.

    Feng. My guild really sucked back then (still does), so we did have some problems with MSV normal. Stone Guard was infuriating, but Feng provided a nice, fair challenge for everybody. Just a very well designed fight with lots of awareness, and with amazing tank mechanics. Killing him for the first time felt just great, like we reached some plateau of cooperative sports or something.

    Other than that, Lei Shen. Never done it with my guild, but I gotta hand it to Lei Shen - this was the first fight well designed on all difficulties, and probably the first entertaining encounter on LFR since the birth of it.

    I like Primordius best,the feeling of getting over powered and a lizard skin to boot was awesome for me. Klaxxi fight close 2nd,not the fight in general just the shit you can pick up and use afterwards!

    Entertaining in LFR? Pls no. He took the average LFR grp 10 stacks of Determination to kill in the first two weeks, and I still see him wipe some LFR groups because Bouncing Bolt is apparently too spoopy for some people to stand in.

    Will of the emperor is highly underrated. The dance was so satisfying to execute, followed by that huge chunk of damage on the boss.
    Vizier and blade lord also had fun things to dodge. I liked that.
    Sha of Fear was kind of boring.

    Throne of Thunder is a personal favourite, I really enjoyed the theme. Reminded me of a Prince of Persia style of adventure, invading a fortress, falling from a bridge and then crawling your way back up facing all kinds of forgotten monstrosities...
    Pre-nerf Drumuru maze was glorious.
    Lei-shen HC best encounter hands down.

    I think most of SoO was pretty bland but that might just be boredom after doing it so many times. The last 3 fights are fun, I guess.

    MoP had some of the best raid encounters in the whole game, WoD better keep up.

    As a tank: Siegecrafter>WotE>Sha of fear heroic(normal was boring, really boring)>Lei Shen

    There is nothing interesting in LFR, period. The reason this system fails is that it's core idea is wrong. Get people who don't raid into a raid enviroment, and, suprise suprise, they can't raid. So LFR relies on making tactics pointless, turning encounters into lootbags without any fun involved.

    Lei Shen is the first that actually did make the whole raid cooperate, be careful, use marks, tactics and such. And yes, people wiped on this one, but at least when you did it you felt like you accomplished something. Usually when people wipe on a boss (eg. Durumu), they just throw themselves back at it without second thoughts until it dies of old age. With Lei Shen some groups analysed each wipe and made sure the mistakes are not going to happen again. If LFR had more fights like that I would run it much more frequently.
