10. Dragon Soul (Cataclysm)
The Cataclysm expansion in World of Warcraft had the longest and, arguably, the most intense build up to its final raid. Dragon Soul saw players return to Wyrmrest Temple in an effort to take down the great leader of the black dragonflight and one of the best Warcraft villains of all time, Deathwing. The eight boss deep raid not only took place throughout various important areas of the world such as the Eye of Eternity and the Maelstrom, but it also culminated in a grandiose final boss wherein players battled the titanic dragon upon its back as they flew through the sky.
The difficulty of the raid paired with the sheer epicness of it easily makes for one of the most memorable WoW raids of all time. Plus there’s a whole lot of Thrall. And you know any time Thrall appears in all of his badassery, you’re in for a good time.
