    Siege of Ogrimmar Worst Raid?

    Am I the only one who feels this way? I absolutely despise this raid. And it's definitely not because of burn out. I jumped into this tier late and only ran it on normal a few times and a few more in LFR/Flex. Meanwhile I've done full ToT at least a hundred times across several difficulties. Currently I've been working on some cloaks for a few alts, and I just do ToT because I like that raid and for-go the extra chances at drops from the first two wings of SoO.

    The only one? I bet not...one tends to find people who dislike anything in the game, so you will have company in your dislike for SoO.

    That said, the vote for "worst" raid usually goes to Dragon Soul or TotC...and if you actually think that even Molten Core is better than SoO...well.../shrug..taste and all that...

    So, in short: the internet.

    I don't get it, you don't even point out why you hate SoO so much?

    It is a burned out raid, yes. But compared to Dragonsoul, it is one hell of a raid in my opinion.

    Only way I can say its worse than others is that there's not much reason to do it for more than Garrosh heirlooms on my alts. At least DS had the mount drop incentive.

    To be honest, no one will ever find out which raid was the "worst".

    A lot of people said TotC was the worst raid, but I always loved the raid because I love skipping trash and just killing bosses.


    SoO was okay.

    I must be one of the few who feels Dragon Soul was above and beyond this one.

    And MC was cool for its time but obviously doesn't hold a candle to the new raid mechanics.

    Opinions man. I think SoO is one of the best and was bored of ToT after 3months

    It was good but it desperately needed 3-4more bosses and some new locations

    It's one of the best raids.

    It is just mediocore in my thought. Definately wasn't the worst ever but wasn't very good in any ways either

    Not even close to the worst raid... in fact, it's probably my favorite raid from this expansion, and possibly makes my top 5 overall (though still far below Ulduar and ICC).

    Nah...worse raid is the naxxramas retake. Nothing but rehashed content made into smaller raids for the sake of "additional content". At least siege was built from the ground up.

    DS felt like the worst raid because the last 2 encounters, which were also the hardest, were just glorified trash fights like Spoils is, IE. without a real boss, just random scrub mobs you have to hit.

    Never understood the hate against DS. It wasn't the best by any means but it wasn't as bad as EoE or SoO IMO. I also liked ToC but just didn't like running it 4 times a week.

    DS's main downfall IMO was the anti-climatic madness of death wing fight.

    In SoO just feel like the whole thing was anti climatic. The Garrosh fight feels artificially too long. There are some cool fights for sure but I guess the scenery and storyline are uninteresting. Could also be because ToT was such a good raid it overshadows SoO.

    As long as Trial of the Crusader and Dragon Soul exist, the title of "worst raid ever" will never be claimed by a newcomer.
