I'm quite curious what the top 5 will be, but this looks like quite the entertaining countdown.You've already hinted at one, the one encounter which is just as tough or tougher than Alone in the Darkness? That's actually a fairly interesting question, you'd naturally assume the Light of Dawn (Lich King 25m hard mode kill). Current top encounter in the game, limited attempts, required kills of the four wing bosses (on the same limited attempts counter), and a rather vicious performance and gear check? It's definitely up there for raw difficulty.... but is it evil?Then we have these two gems, Herald of the Titans and Tribute to Dedicated Insanity. May as well throw in Tribute to Insanity (25 player) in there as well. The first two are the 10 man strict achievements, requiring you to not outgear the instance and complete the "hardest" encounter or sequence of encounters in that particular raid. The third is just the 25 man version of the second, but lacking the gear restriction and you can probably do it in ICC gear.Or perhaps you're hinting at something seemingly mundane but so utterly evil requirement of them all?The Immortal.Naxx is an easy instance, but to clear every single boss encounter without ANYONE dying (on the bosses) in the same lockout period? I'd be surprised if that one doesn't end up there. Conqueror and Champion of Ulduar are considerably more sane, as each boss kill without anyone dying to that boss or wiping towards the achievement and it's not required to do the whole thing in one week. Not so for the Undying and the Immortal. There's a damned good reason those Black Proto-drakes are so rare, and the Immortal is it. The drake being no longer obtainable is another reason, but chances are you'll see fewer of those proto-drakes than you will see something like Invincible.And to deviate a little bit.... I wonder if Loremaster of Kalimdor will be up there. Not really the whole of the Loremaster achievement, just Kalimdor. The rest have ample to fill up bar, Kalimdor's a never-ending snipe hunt. Tracking down every.... single.... quest. Well, not quite so anymore with the nerfs. But that's a lot of ground to cover, and sometimes it might even be in Eastern Kingdoms for all you know.Meh, it might not be up there. But I think it deserves an honourable mention at least.
