My raid team is about to go full-time into Nightmare modes and I was wondering if the guilds that have more experience could rank the boss difficulty? We're an 8M team. I'm presuming that Withering Horror and Dash-roode are the easiest but I can't really find any discussions about this subject.

My personal opinion on this (considering DPS & heal requirements in current version of the 8man encounter):

1. Withering Horror - TfB (Easiest)
2. Operations Chief - S&V
3. Dash'roode - S&V
4. Operator IX - TfB
5. Titan 6 - S&V
6. Kephess the Undying - TfB
7. The Dread Guard - TfB
8. Olok the Shadow - S&V
9. Trasher - S&V
10. The Terror from Beyond - TfB
11. The Cartel Warlords - S&V
12. Dread Master Styrak - S&V (Hardest)

Vajet is pretty much spot on with the list. We haven't killed Styrax yet, but in our few attempts he takes the prize for most difficult atm. Some few added points:

- Dread Guard nerfs have really made the fight much easier
- TFB has a tight DPS requirement (healing and tanking are fairly easy)
- Olox and Warlords have tough healing situations (I personally hate the first minute of Warlords )
- Styrax and Thrasher is all around difficult for every class and usually 1 mechanic failure is a instant wipe.
Ascension Apply Here
5/5 NiM TFB, 7/7 NiM S&V (8/16 man) & DF/DP HM (8 /16 man)
Rialus - Sage Healer (From Beyond, Eternal Warrior)
Shifthappens - Vanguard DPS (does stuff)

Yeah, well, I tried to even out dps/hps requirements and overall difficulty. Surely, if you have excellent DPS, some of the fights I have ranked 'hard' (like Terror from Beyond) become easier than others. Or if you have excellent tanks/healers other fights will appear easier. Styrak can become easier depending on your knockback/stun setup (e.g. when you have lots of snipers... or mercs instead).

16 man mode

Ops cheif: -easier on 16 than 8
OP9: -eaiser first phase, second phase demands quick movement on colors or raid dies from black obtuse wave
Dash: about the same as 8
WH: harder on 16 man, spit kills you in two ticks and tank damage is pretty high
Titan 6: Not a hard fight until burn phase.
Olak: Tedious.
Trasher: **** that 50%
Kephess: This fight is difficult as **** on 16 man. If you don't get good rng, you don't kill him.
Dread Guard: Because yea.
CWL: Dat timing at the end, roughly the same difficulty as 8, higher raid damage.
TfB: This fight is just not nice on 16 man.
Styrak: Demands perfection on execution, not a crazy dps race though.

The Dread Guard (prenerf)

I think my job in the raid is the most easiest., beacaus as a mara you have only small tools to support your group (like preadtion or bloodthirst). So I see my job here: don't take to much dmg but do alot of dmg.
Prenerf DG were very hard for melee Dps cause of the movment and the overload. But now with hard reduced dmg and Enragetime and life you don't have to stay on Kel'saara all the time.
Dread Master Styrak has no enrage timer, so you can keep your cooldowns for every Illusion which makes it much more easier for your group.
There is only one thing you have to do : max out your Dps to make it easier for your group.

The fight I like most, is Trasher (I play on the outer ring). You can jump around an use ur predation i the right time.
