You have just killed the Lich King on normal mode and are about to embark on heroics. Icecrown Citadel allows you to choose to do any fight in heroic mode but some heroics are much more difficult than others. Choosing the right heroics early in your campaign allows your group to gear up faster.
Our world progress stats
provides data on the average gear level of raiding groups when they first conquer a given fight. This gives an indication of the relative difficulty of each of the encounters and suggests the following heroic starting points:
- Gunship Battle, Lord Marrowgar and Rotface are the entry level heroics. After that, try Blood Prince Council, Blood-Queen Lana'thel and Festergut.
- Gunship Battle, Lord Marrowgar and Lady Deathwhisper are the easier heroics. Saurfang and Rotface should be attempted next.
Professor Putricide and Sindragosa remain the most difficult of the heroic fights in both 10 and 25 forms. It is best to leave these until last.
