Top 6 Worst World of Warcraft Raid Bosses

Five of the worst raid bosses ever seen in World of Warcraft.

alt="Header" />

Raiding in World of Warcraft is the
holy grail for many players. Each raid instance offers up a host of
bosses complete new challenges, triumphs and failures for each set of
players. Most boss fights in the game inspire players and bring back
fond memories and let us relive epic moments. There are some bosses
in the game that most players wish had never been put in the game.
Below you will find six such bosses in our rendition of:

Top 6 Worst World of Warcraft Raid

Sulfuron Harbinger, Molten Core

As the herald of Ranaros himself, you
would expect the eighth boss of Molten Core to pack a little punch.
Even though Sulfuron is joined by no less than eight Flamewalker
Priests, this fight is nothing short of a boring tank and
spank....over, and over, and over again. To add insult to injury, it
is likely that after finally spanking all the priests and then the
big baddie Sulfuron himself, your raid was likely to get the utterly
useless Thunderstrike as a reward. This weapon wasn't nicknamed
Vendorstrike just for laughs. For these reasons Sulfuon has made our
list of worst World of Warcraft raid bosses.

Deathwing, Dragon Soul

When Deathwing was first revealed as
the last boss for Cataclysm most of us were prepared for a fight of
epic proportions. How would we manage to take down something that
big? The answer to that questioned turns out to be pretty darn easy.
While tearing armor off Deathwing was somewhat interesting despite
the repetitive nature, the supposed grand finale of the fight was far
from it.

The Madness of Deathwing is long,
repetitive, and gives players no sense of doing much of anything.
Sure you run around and kill numerous tentacles, bloods, and
corruptions, but what does killing these things actually do? Not to
mention the fact that during this entire fight you are basically
playing the Robiin to Thrall and the Aspect's Batman. Not a fun
position for a hero who has easily defeated many other major bosses
without having their hand held along the way.

Razorgore the Untamed, Blackwing Lair

Razorgore is the first boss in
Blackwing Lair and possibly holds the title of my least favorite boss
ever. Razorgore is the first raid boss in the instance and is located
in the egg lair. To defeat Razorgore basically you are going to have
to deal with adds...a lot of adds. So many adds that when completing
this instance back in the day, the lag would be so bad it caused
shock waves on the other side of the planet. Those of us who had to
deal with this only wish we could say we were exaggerating. Razorgore
will forever cause millions of players to shudder in horror at his
very name for years to come.

Faction Champions, Trail of the

Have you ever thought gee wouldn't it
be great to have a boss in a raid instance that would ocmpletily
ignore your raid skills and gear and instead be much like walking
into a PvP arena? Or even take it one step futher and have a whole
host of such bosses? either. However, for some reason this
exact set up happened in the Trail of the Crusader raid dungeon in
Wrath of the Lich King. Raiders found themselves pitted against
several NPCs in a PvP style fight. This fight was chaotic, required
massive gear changes and threw raiders out of their element in a bad
way, easily putting this boss fight on the list for worst boss fights

Twin Emperors, Temple of Ahn'Qiraj

The Twin Emperors in the Temple of
Ahn,Qiraj are one of those fights in the game that is so hard, so
skill sensitive, that it has the potential to implode guilds. While I
am all for challenging fights, there comes a point when things might
be a little bit too hard, too stress inducing, and too much of a
headache. You can safely say this too much rule applies when players
were going back to the Twin Emps at level 85 and still struggling to
defeat them.

Netherspite, Karazhan

Netherspite is an gigantic nether
dragon lurking in the Celestial Watch portion of Karazhan. Killing
Netherspite basically requires players to take turns absorbing
various colored beams from three portals that spawn during a certain
phase of the fight. Basically the entire fight is a huge game of
uninteresting musical chairs and after a few attempts, becomes
enough to annoy even the most stalwart player. The only redeeming
quality of this boss? Netherspite is totally optional to continuing
progression in Karazhan.
