It's subjective, but I think they did a good job of having the difficulty in proper order in TFB, although some groups might have more issues with Operator IX or Dread Guard than Kephess (especially on Story Mode).

My ranking is hardest -> easiest

16-player: Terror from Beyond > Kephess the Undying -> The Dread Guards -> Operator IX -> The Writhing Horror

8-player: Terror from Beyond -> Operator IX -> Kephess the Undying -> The Dread Guards -> The Writhing Horror

I think Kephess and the Dread Guards would be the only ones people might change about your order for 16-HM. I'm pretty sure everyone who has seen all 5 bosses on 16-HM would agree that The Writhing Horror is very easy and that Operator IX is easy (and easier on 16).

As a healer on 8 man, i see the Dread Guard to be the hardest, followed by Kephess, Terror From Beyond , The Withering Horror, Operator IX. I based the difficulty on mechanics, movement required, total raid damage, as well as single target damage.

Hard for me to judge as a mdps since they all seem rather close to the same difficulty, besides maybe dodging motes on the DG.

As a tank about the same as a mdps, besides Operator IX being the easiest.

I've played TFB several times and, for the entire group I've had for each, I can say the difficulty level for each boss is pretty much how it's laid out

From Hardest to easiest

Terror from Beyond (It's just a hard fight), Kephess ( It's so mechanics driven that I've never been in a group that hasn't wiped many many times), Operator IX OR Dread Guard (I found Operator ridiculously easy. One of our DPS DC'd mid fight last time I did it and we still managed to 7 man the entire fight. Dread guard was wipey until we figured out we had to run around to avoid the green circles), Operator IX OR Dread Guard (subjective), Writhing Horror.
