4 - 5
And LFR raids barely learn. Join a lfr group and see how botanist trash goes. 90% of the time it's a dumpster fire.
They don't do it for the challenge either, bc lfr has been tuned to have as little failure rate as possible, apart from 1 shot mechanics (only seen 2 so far in legion lfr), everything does inconsequential damage and can be summarily ignored.
Anything between 6-14.
I like big raids like Ulduar and Throne of Thunder, so I guess 12+ raids.
And what's the point of learning boss mechanics ever, if you "have fun as they come up"? LFR also does naught to prepare you to do the other difficulties, because of the way it's designed to have a slim to 0 chance of failure.
between 7-10, just one raid per tier
In WoW raid context, if we are talking inside a specific raid instance, 6-9 bosses per. If we're talking a raid tier as a whole, which can be multiple raid instances, 14-16ish.
Anything over 10 bosses in a single raid, barring said raid having a "winged" layout or format, gets to be a bit of a drag. 5 or less and it's no more than a glorified dungeon.
6-9 would be my choice. i liked firelands and dragon soul for their size and time requirements

I think 10 is good, not too short and not too long

Reading through this thread made my day! All the saltyness from the people calling out OP, and his optimistic replies. OP, you sound like someone enjoying the way you are playing. Keep it up! OT: 9-11 is cool for me
Godamit i cant kill Spellblade Aluriel in Nighthold because of freaking Anihilation or whatever Fists of Fury she does.
I'm stuck on 3 bosses for life since she is the 4th.
Six is about right no more than that. I don't have the time or inclination to raid 10+ bosses anymore. My old Vanilla wow self would prefer as many bosses as possible because I was a raid Junkie. Now with limited time, I think 6 bosses is plenty and any less than that is just as good. When I was 20 I didn't think about how valuable time was and now that is all I can think about.
Time invested in having reasonable fun is never a waste in my eyes but I'd prefer more challenging bosses and less of them.
