I _knew_ this would be full of commenters trying to pretend that 10-man was harder because "one person screwing up means a lot more". Look, fellers, I know you'd like to believe that. I know you'd like to believe that you're hard done by and deserve top level loot as much as the 25-man raiders do. But it's just NOT TRUE. 10-man is MUCH easier. Yes one screwup means more but everything* is so tuned down that that screwup is vastly less likely to happen. Everything hits so much softer, so that 2-3 healers can handle all the incoming damage, but the side effect is that the scary spikes which threaten instant death in 25-man just don't exist in 10-man.It is a mile easier. And remember - if one person screws up in Violet Hold it can wipe you, but you wouldn't say VH was harder than a 10-man raid would you?* with the exception of maybe two mis-tuned fights, which have been admitted as mistakes by Blizzard - Sarth-3D and pre-nerf General Vezax

It's not really the one screwup, it's the fact that in 25man it's so much easier to hide in the mass of bodies, just kind of go along and think it wasn't your lack of effort that killed the raid. It's easier to get on to the train of thought that leads to laziness and lack of improvement. And thus, if many people think like that, content seems harder by comparison to many.25man is partially seeming harder because it's harder to track down and keep 25 people who can actually learn something from every wipe. 10man sure as hell is also easier, but it's not only reason why 10man progress is faster than 25man to many, our guild included.
