Yogg Saron with all keepers helping (i.e. easy mode) is much more difficult than any of the rest of the bosses in the instance non-hard mode and thus I feel it would be fitting if he dropped slightly higher ilvl loot. I don't see him being PuGed, well, ever so the situation where random mages running around in blue gear with Turning Tide while RNG forces those in raiding guilds to use Life and Death along with all their best-in-slot items shouldn't crop up again. Failing that, they might just put incredibly well itemised ilvl226 loot on Yogg, as we've been DEing a fair amount of trash so far.To put things into perspective, I'm in a world top 25 guild and we blew through most of Ulduar this week. Yes, we had PTR experience but we still killed Hodir, who was on the US PTR and we never saw, on the third pull and Iron Council went down on the first. Deconstructor proved a bit harder because we were doing completely the wrong thing and didn't DPS the heart at all and Mimiron took about two hours of attempts.Last night we started on Yogg Saron and spent eight hours on him. He's still not dead. He'll go down tonight I'm sure but probably not immediately. That length of time, while still insignificant compared to a boss like M'uru or Kil'jaeden is still far more than anything in Naxx or the rest of Ulduar required. Without wanting to give anything away, the fight will very much test your raid co-ordination, your raid's ability to not stand in "stuff", your DPS's ability to keep it in their pants when needed and will encourage your healers to multi-task in various areas of the fight. In short, it's not incredibly hard but it will prove a significant challenge for most guilds, even with all watchers helping. Seeing what they've done with Yogg normal has made me very excited about seeing Algalon in a few weeks' time.
