Hardest Operation Boss?

As the title says above.

I haven't done many hard mode operations but I think Operator IX is the toughest boss in TFB HM. It requires great communication and coordination to defeat it. I have seen many groups struggle with this boss. Some players might accidently kill the wrong orb or not get to the cores fast enough. Most players ask others if they have the achievement for the boss before inviting them.

Another one would be Master and Blaster in the Ravagers. The growing aoes and the bombs on players offer little room for maneuver. And Master's flame ability can be brutal for melee players. The boss also puts a lot of strain on the healers as well, especially if players are standing in the aoes. I don't even want to know what it's like on hard mode.

What is your pick for the hardest operation boss?

Hardest operation boss in what mode?
The hardest bosses in HM are not the hardest bosses in NiM.

*shameless plug* streaming a HM operation marathon tonight, possibly some NiM. If you have time to catch some of it, I will no doubt be going through which ones are hardest vs. easiest and why. If you're interested.

It can be either SM, HM or NIM, these are just ones from personal experience, I haven't done a lot of HM or NIM ops.

i would say nim brontes is the hardest. lots of mechanics that everybody in the group has to do correctly, strict dps checks and heal checks. she is a very tough broad.

More or less any of Styrak, Brontes, Hateful or M&B on 16man mode, some might argue against 16man cause in certain cases bossfights gets slightly easier, however, the 16man factor is very important due to how difficult it is to find and organise 16 Nightmare capable raiders.

Yeah, 16m are another topic. The major problem here are the increasing performance-issues.
