Went into 25 man last week, got the first boss down quickly enough, worked on the second for a couple of hours and really loved tanking it. Great, challenging content and interesting technical hurdles for tanks - gather up adds, kite the enraged adds, control mob placement - great!Then we went into 10 man last night and had 2 wipes total on the gunship until we figured it out and then, one shot Deathbringer. That was incredibly deflating. The difference in difficulty between 10 and 25 is just too steep.That said, the raid itself is just glorious. I will not mind coming here week after week like I dreaded going into ToC. Even the trash is fun. Having our little gnome rogue sneak in to disarm the giant skeletons made my D&D nerd self squeal with joy. First fight is fun, second fight is just awesome to tank, though without two waves at once on 10 the fight looses its teeth, and the gunship battle is just perfectly designed and some of the most fun I've had in ages. Saurfang is challenging and I can see how if we didn't have two hunters and an elemental shaman it would've been really messy but as it is, it worked out perfectly. Fun fight, though, and lots of stuff for everyone to do and watch out for.In the end - I give this raid two giant thumbs up. Worth the wait.Now, bring on the hard modes!
