    Just finished 36/36.

    Hooray.

    The hardest ones for me were tied between Prot Pally, Prot War, and, this may come as a surprise, Feral Druid.

    I tried Prot Pally right after I finished the encounter for the first time with my Brew. I know I probably already outgeared the fight I still couldn't enter P2 with less than 3 Infernals. Needless to say, a fair amount of getting knocked out of island followed.
    Eventually decided to switch my legos over to Aggramar and Sephuz instead and got it in 3 tries (the extra runspeeds help a lot imo).
    Even though I died at 4% and had the npcs finished the fight for me, I still remember the relief I had to finally be done with the encounter.
    Took me around 15 tries in total.

    Went ahead and tried Prot War a week later. What I imagined would've been a lot easier compared to Prot Pal between having charges and stomps to counter knockbacks and the much lower enemy hps just didn't go as planned. Took even more tries (around 20) to finally win the fight, and I have never successfully reacted quick enough to charge/stomp out of those knockbacks (always giving me the no path available line) during the 19 or wipes.
    But then, warrior is one of the alts that I play seldomly (compared to my pally) so I was really unfamiliar with the Prot War kit.

    As for the Feral challenge, I have no idea what had got into me, but I spent the whole night attempting the encounter a few hours before the server went down for 7.3. And back then, one of the two legos that my druid had was the boots - which gave me the false assumption that I just had to run the Bloodtalons build instead of Brutal Slash, and clearing out the trashes were so freaking hard without Brutal Slash.
    In retrospect, I should probably just ignore the boots and went with the Brutal Slash build and had a much easier time.
    Or better yet, just wait another day for the talent revamp to hit which would've made that choice irrelevant and the encounter significantly easier.
    A total of 12 tries of time poorly spent.

    I didn't actually had much of a problem on the Outlaw challenge as others here suggested, it was even one of the easiest challenges I have done out of the 36s.
    But then I did outgear with encoutner (ilvl 923 iirc) and outlaw rogue was my main (that I couldn't get out of due to those stupid exalted rep achievement being bound to a single character, jeez!).

    I may call it at 24/36. I tried to get my SO the ret pally skin, but two hours worth of attempts at ilvl 911 and the lowest I've gotten Sigryn down to is 35%. I struggled with this one on my paladin as well, but attributed it to learning the encounter. Now, I don't know. I one-shotted it on rogue and it took maybe 3 attempts on shaman despite not having played assassination or enhancement throughout Legion. I feel like paladin should have an easier time with their toolkit, but it seems significantly more difficult. Oh well. Someone should have informed me before the very last day that they wanted the ret skin and been spending the past couple months gearing up instead of saying there was nothing to do in the game. :P

    So, I'll be missing all of the healing skins (unless I can psyche myself up for more resto druid attempts, ugh), prot warrior (ugly), sub rogue (ugly), brewmaster (confusing spec), survival (meh), arcane mage (looks like a healer staff), guardian (too masculine), and blood DK (meh). Some of them I wanted to try just to see if I could do them, but there just wasn't enough time.
    "That's your opinion, I'm sorry you have it."

    Hardest - Prot Pala with Aggrimars and Welfare leggo ring. I must have wiped 75 times despite overgearing the crap out of it. Eventually stopped getting horny on DPSing Inquisitor, never letting stacks go about 4-5, focussed the adds down as they spawned and saved consumables and cooldowns for the kruul phase.

    Easiest - the same fight but with my Vengence DH alt at same ilvl but no tanking or survival legendaries at all! Tried it on a whim at the weekend as the skin was quite nice and I knew it was going away this week. I literally one shot it in about 90 seconds - I blew cooldowns on pull and inquisitor died so damned fast (I hit 6 debuff stacks as he died I think?) that I thought it was bugged until I realised his health pool is half that of the Prot pala encounter. Kruul met a similar fate moments later, DH jumps and double jump completely negating the pushbacks etc. Couldn't believe how easy it was compared to the grind on the Prot pala.

    I only did 8 and most of those were among those considered to be easy. From hardest to easiest:

    1. Resto druid (took a long time for me to learn; disheartening to fail on later phases)
    2. MM hunter (big gap between the first one and this - it wasn't too bad once I learned how to kite)
    3. Survival hunter (first phase was easy with all the tricks the spec has; I did struggle on killing the adds in time in the second phase)
    4. Balance druid (easy with the cheese strat; harder than MM without it)

    These last four were all similar in difficulty level:
    5. Windwalker (died a few times due to getting caught out with a stun and no quick heals but otherwise straightforward)
    6. Discipline (takes a long time but on the plus side it's very hard to die)
    7. BM hunter (a selection of healing legendaries utterly trivialised this)
    8. Feral (with stackable buffs and the Command Centre; I had no prior knowledge of the spec and frankly still don't)

    The hardest for me was all of the healing challenges. I don't heal ever so I didn't even bother.

    Otherwise out of what I did do. I would say Prot Paladin and maybe Fury Warrior gave me the most trouble since release. With how gear has evolved and how long it took me to get around to different alts it is hard to give accurate feedback.

    I completed a total of 20 challenges. If I tried it I completed it. If I didn't try it I didn't want the appearance in the first place.

    I'm surprised so many people say prot paladin. For me, the tank challenges from hardest to easiest was:
    prot war >>>>>> brew master >> blood DK > veng DH > guardian >> prot pala
    My perspective is probably a bit off due to druid being my main and guardian being an offspec I play a lot and have good legendaries for, as well as veng DH being my most played alt, also with good legendaries. But prot war was seriously insane with mind rends taking off a third of my max hp with a single cast. And my warrior was at 922, so not undergeared for it. My prot pala (935 - full holy gear) on the other hand, should've been a oneshot if I hadn't done really stupid stuff the two first attempts (falling off and tanking adds on top of Velen...) so I'm not sure what was so hard about it? My main problem aside from playing badly was the caster mob following me around because I interrupted him too much...

    For the other challenges, I'd say frost DK, frost mage, holy paladin, outlaw rogue and ret paladin. Feltotem... ehh, they were all easy after I learned the encounter. Oh and I didn't do any of the warlock ones as I don't have a max level warlock.

    BM without a healing/pry leggo is a nightmare. I take around 700k per scream, in total Im around 9mil+ on just that, thats not taking into anything else I might run into during the fight. After a bout an hour I just walked away..

    I got caught up in Beta way too much the last several months and fell behind on these, not that I was actually trying to get all of them, but I ended up 25/36 I just couldn't be arsed to level up my priest so that's the one toon that doesn't have one. It was crunch time this week though so with limited time to play I managed to finish the remaining challenge (Sub and Outlaw) on my okayish rogue, Guardian on my recently leveled druid with basically complete shit gear, archimondes/crafted leggos, but it was actually very easy probably because I did all the other tank challenges before 7.3 no doubt. Then starting late Sunday Night I tried to do the Frost mage challenge and that was just retarded, one mistake and dead basically. And I was doing it with fairly decent gear (no tier unfortunately) and I was maximizing frost orbs and blizzard, it was just a combination of hands spawning in bad locations and adds standing on runes, and Karam being a twat and this challenge somehow being easier when it first launched with far less gear, it was p4 everytime, and just another minute and it would have been over but nah.

    And so I tried fire and I nearly one shot it, it only took a handful of attempts. Monday morning went back to frost and no Bueno.


    I took a break from that because my recently boosted shaman was just earning it's legendary research.
    I boosted a shaman up because I had 3 shaman leggo tokens and lo and behold I got prydaz and roots out of those 3 so knocking the dps challenges was ez mode and I just didn't bother wh the healing challenge because I was already overwhelmed...

    Monday afternoon next day...same story.

    So I moved on to my shitty warlock, I had great leggos for affliction (Corruption, Prydaz, Helm) so despite still having to resort to using the WOD BOA caster trinket which was that best I had other than my 2nd trinket, a timewalking quagmirron's eye from Slave pens, all this after multiple relinquished token attempts I managed that challenge just fine weeks prior, but I had to get my gear in order for a good go at the Demonology challenge with limited time and unwillingness to spend a lot of gold or do much of anything really. And well w.e, I used prydaz and crafted shoulders and gave it a real honest go but holy fuck even with impeccable stats my dmg was just so bad even if I played perfectly eventually I'd hit a wall where caster dude would literally spam his special back to back and that made the whole affair unfun.


    So then I figured what the hell, I'll go finally obtain my destro artifact. SO I did that, I put green relics in that shit (2 hours left to go before servers went down) I used the same gear set up as my Demo challenge, and I got it in 5 tries having never played destro at all before then.

    Went back to Demonology with 1 hour and a half to go...and nah. Same story.

    Went back to frost? I was actually doing really great finally, but got into a position at the very end of p4 where Karam was really close to dead, 3 minutes left to go before server reset this morning, and suddenly there were was both a hand and a rune I could not reach without letting slow fall off on Karam, which is what happened so I died.

    Ending 25/36 ain't bad, especially when a lot of these were specs I had to learn while doing the challenge. My verdict: literally all of them were easy if you outgeared them. Some were easy in shit gear and then somehow more difficult for some classes than others. Easiest by far was Closing the Eye, followed closely by Feltotem's Fall and The God-Queen's Fury. Only two I completed on all classes who could do it was Closing the Eye and The Highlord's Return. Actually I completed 5/6 Highlord's Return prior to release of Argus patch, but that's not because it was easier, just more access to gear at the time on those toons and ideal gear at that.

    Also, I had all challenges completed on my warrior, dk, monk, hunter, rogue and on my demon hunter. And all of those except the rogue were complete many many months ago.

    After a desperate last second dash I have done all for lock, priest, mage, shaman, druid and DH, so 19 in total? Missed out on rogue and hunter unfortunately because of garbage gear, and I don't even have a warrior/dk at max level. Monk I could have done but I honestly just don't like any of the skins and prefer different mogs.
