Generally speaking, the 25-man versions are harder - higher healing and DPS requirements, greater raid damage, more complex encounters. Patchwerk, for example, requires a better tank in the 25-man version to avoid straight insta-gibs, regardless of how much healing you have. However, there are certain 10-man encounters that are actually harder than their Heroic counterparts.For example, Sartharion with all 3 drakes still up. In the 25-man version, it's safe to bring 4 or even 5 tanks to deal with all of the (fairly numerous) nuisances that having three drakes up entail. In the 10-man, though, bringing 5 tanks would be suicidal; you'd never beat the enrage timer. So in the 10-man super-challenge mode, a point is reached where there are just too many jobs for 10 people to do comfortably; that makes the encounter harder by sheer mechanics.
