Uhh god. I remember doing the belts and sweating so much that I was afraid I’d mess up


I was the breaker for Mythic Gorefiend and I feel like I still have PTSD from that. That's the only thing I've ever done on the level of Blackfuse belts.
shade of aran pre nerf, what misery that was
Might be nostalgia but i remember pre-nerf Gruul in TBC being mathematically possible but most guilds weren't able to kill him prior to his HP being nerfed by 30%.
Mechanically?

Heigan?
I hear heroic Ragnaros was a real trial for top guilds at the time.
Pre Nerf Muru.

Mythic KJ

1300+ combined wipes for the top 2 guilds to kill.

1400+ wipes for world 4th alone.

Only 2 guilds killed prior to first official nerfs (not undocumented hot fixes)

No real significant dps throughput check.

5 waves of mechanical nerfs and still lowest cutting edge count at ~850.

also remember that before BC, alliance did not have paladins and horde did not have shaman.. so im assuming that contributed to the issues as well.


You have that backwards....
Spine of Deathwing was a nightmare in 25H if people weren't paying attention. Good news is it was easy to full wipe.
Horridon was pretty brutal

M'uru was a guild killer.
Mythic Zul is M'uru on steroids. Have fun.
Imperator Mar'gok on mythic is pretty mechnically intensive. That one or Blast Furnace are probably the hardest I've done.
Vectis apparently. kek
I'd be all for more mechanics like those presented in the Mage Towers.
Can't forget to mention Heroic Ragnaros. That !@#$ took forever for even the first kill of him.

The !@#$ blocks of Sunwell: Brutallus and Mu'ru

The damage outgoign at the time was insane, even if Brutallus couldnt crit you.

Just look at the tanks health, and this is him NOT being crit


Fun fact, I actually got merc'd into a friends guild to do burn healing on brute, the highlight of my wow raiding life was listening to the GM verbally 5 point eviserate their healers because they had an unguilded druid doing their job on a progression fight.

Then my buddy piped up over their vent that I was a balance main. And he went full 50 DKP minus.
Last time I checked...

Mythic Kil'jaeden has held the spotlight as "hardest boss" since he came out.
The one I saw the most people die in was the safety dance fight in Naxx.
Maybe the "I Can't Hear You Over the Sound of How Awesome I Am" achievement for H Sinestra?
