16 Man Firebrand and Stormcaller is definitely harder than the 8 man version. For the rest... not much harder as a healer. I don't know about dpsing and tanking because I haven't done 16 man EC as a dps or tank.

From my experience, on Denova SM 8 man is harder, on Denova HM 16 man is harder.

On paper 8 man is harder as it has stricter DPS & HPS requirements and is less forgiving of mistakes. That said it is much easier to find 8 good players then 16, so often 16 man becomes harder for that reason alone.

8 man should be "harder" to the extent that it requires more skilled players and less room for error. However, I'd say 16-man is more annoying (especially Denova) because you can't cc a darn thing. In my experience the trash is more difficult than the bosses in 16-man.

I would think a perk for doing it 8man HM and doing it 16man HM
Some guilds can do 8man like a walk in the park, but struggle with 16, and vice versa. I'd like to see a perk or reward for one or the other ya know? Maybe a title, or an extra comm or 2.
Just an idea!

I believe 16man HM is harder jst for the fact that it takes more team work, and people doing their job.
