I've been raiding 10 man's and we are starting 25's tomorrow, at the moment we are 7/12 and I have been present for every kill, but I did start off slightly lacking in gear as did we all, I'm not sure how the 25s are going to go but I do know that 10's were fairly difficult but not overly so, I can see why 10 man's have a higher item level, it's as most people have mentioned, there's a core to most guilds, 10-15 players that are all geared, prepared and 100% ready to raid, then there's the space fillers the last 5 people you invite to the 25 because they're worse than everyone else but hey 7k dps for 80% of the fight is better than 0

I'd say it's the core of the raiding guild too that pushes the 10man average to be much higher. I'm at ilvl 355 at the moment. But we have the 'other half' of the raiders closer to the 330 mark. We are dedicated to the 25man, especially now it's on a mutually exclusive lock outs. But during the xmas break, we downed a few new bosses on 10, because the dedicated core is still doing heroics and 10mans, to reach the valor point cap each week. In my experience, 10man and 25man aren't harder or easier than each other so far. (Not the difficulty difference you see in Bane of Fallen King vs Light of Dawn).And I can understand the reverse in the stats for Ascendant Council. It's the chain lightning effect. I haven't done it on 10, but in 25, it's pretty brutal if one lightning rod screws up. (Usually result in terrastra tank + melee group all dying, leading to a wipe).
