    I rly didnt like the feel of hfc,it looked ugly,mecanicaly it was pretty good,but the legend ring just ruined it,it was clearly not tuned with the ring in mind,by the time my guild got to archi with full rings,we basicaly ignored half the mecanics cause the dps was insane high,also the weird difficulty curve on some bosses was just wack,gorefiend was a huge difficulty spike and then the next 2 bosses were almost as easy as the first

    Ya, the raid itself was fine, but man its really marred by the black eye that was things like the Legendary Ring, Soul Cap and burst classes like Rogue and Bombkin, and of course Arcane Mage, which was just like 30+ percent stronger than every other spec in the game at the time.

    Sad that the raid itself was made so awkward because of those things, because many of the bosses were very fun.

Granted I didn't join most of the groups because they weren't personal loot though. You'd spend like an hour or two trying to pug one boss, going through like 40 players, but eh, it was alright, I was willing to put up with it. That gear was going to last for a long time anyway. With BFA pugging, you just see raids outright dissolve since the gears less worthwhile and has the shorter shelflife

    I hated it because it was significantly different from previous raids. Typically, if you joined a fight on the 7th boss, you knew the 8th 9th and 10th were next and people would stick around. In an HFC pug everyone would want to go to a different boss after every fight and people would have different bosses killed so pugs that cleared multiple bosses just didn’t really exist.

It had some of the most memorable fights to date as well, Star augur is one that’s brought up consistently when referring to a challenging but fun fight. Gul’dan was a great end boss and there were a lot of really good mid tier fights like Tich and spellblade. Only fight I really disliked was botanist.

    Obviously this is subjective though and that’s not to say WoD raids were bad, they were great as well. The mythic only version of imperator was pretty hyped up at the time.
    The systems around raiding rather than the actual raid itself might make me feel like it was less fun, I guess. I was not a fan of Legion in general.

    But I was raiding on and off during WoD, I didn't do much BrF but I really enjoyed Highmaul and I loved HFC. It was fun and challenging and looked fuckin' awesome. And while I'm not a big fan of the AU bullshit, it was nice to see some familiar, villainous faces. Big up HFC.
    Yes, without the Raids, WoD was a total shitshow. But IMO the raiding in WoD was better than the raiding in Legion (I didn't do Antorus, though).

    But overall, HFC will probably be the best raid that had the least amount of players raiding it.

    first boss in HFC on M actually took quite a few wipes.

    Gunship in ICC was like barely any on H even in poop guilds.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

    Apart from the first boss being a bit... Meh, I think HFC was a really great raid instance in both monsters, looks(Perhaps a bit *too* feltainted) and tactics Not my top 5, but far from my worst 5 either!

    Thats dumb. BRF is the literal pinnacle of WoW raiding. BRF is 10/10, HFC is 8.5/10, Highmaul is 8/10. Nighthold is like 7 or 7.5.

    Sure, I guess. if you want to appreciate mediocrity.
