@TylerI did not mean to imply that Sarth 3D was the only difficult 10man fight. The two sentences of that rebuttal are intended to be different ideas. My lack of sleep and coffee made that unclear, and I apologize. The fact of the matter is true: 10mans are harder than 25s because of logistics. When one person drops in a 10man, a full tenth of your raiding output is now tanking the floor. In 25-man, it's 4%. If a DPS dies, he will likely be covered by the remaining DPS. I've been in countless 25-man fights where we had a tank die, and one of the other tanks moved in to cover the gap. It was hard, the healers had to work at keeping them up, but we made it. That would be impossible in most 10man fights. Neither 10 nor 25 man is easy, but 10-man raids rely much more heavily on personal responsibility and each lost person is a major blow to the raid's chance to get the boss down. I think that makes 10-mans much more difficult than people assume, just because it has smaller numbers.
