Guilds are currently spoiled for choice when it comes to tackling raids. After conquering Mogu'shan Vaults normal mode, guilds can head on to the Heart of Fear and Terrace of Endless spring, both offering item level 496 gear. Additionally, Heroic Mogu'shan Vaults is another option and it offers up heroic item level 502 gear. When is the best time to start with heroics and which heroic bosses are the easiest?
Taking a look at our World Boss Kill Stats
, we can see that the first heroic boss on the list is the first set of bosses in Mogu'shan Vaults - Heroic Stone Guard
. Looking at both the achievement rates and average raid item level, Heroic Stone Guard is very similar in difficulty to Garalon normal. So if your guild can kill Heart of Fear's Garalon then they should be ready to take on Heroic Stone Guard.
The next heroic boss on the list is the second encounter in Mogu'shan VaultsHeroic Feng the Accursed
. Feng is best attempted once your guild has conquered Grand Empress Shek'zeer, the final boss in Heart of Fear, on normal mode.
After Feng, most guilds are completing all of the normal mode bosses in Terrace of Endless Spring before moving on to the third heroic boss in Mogu'shan Vaults - Heroic Gara'jal
We hope this has helped with chosing the right time for starting heroics so you can reap the rewards of the higher item level loot.
