    Default Tier 1 and 2 - Difficulty Rankings

    Can someone rank these dungeons in difficulty for me please?

    This is for NEW'ish' lvl 50 PLAYERS. A small group of friends that will start casually working through these dungeons. What is a natural progression in terms of gear requirements, and boss difficulty.

    Please assume:
    - The tank is competent, but inexperienced with expert dungeons
    - An off healer is available, but standard group doesn't include one (so please indicate if off-heals are necessary)

    Thanks to anyone who takes the time to post their rankings.

    So far, personal experience...

    From Easy to Hard T1

    IT > LH > FC > KB = Rotf? Haven't done realm of the fae yet to be honest. Most of the complaints I've heard are about the long trash. Manticores in KB always seem to give my groups problems for some reason, I've tried various strats. Knockback immune, spread out, stack close, stack by the stump, it just seems like nothing works the best. Other than that the instance isn't too bad

    Haven't really started T2 yet, but I would imagine it's something like

    AP > DD > CC > RD?

    From easiest to hardest (imo)
    T1
    FC/IT
    LH
    KB(konstantins mathosian fury must be kited)
    RotF
    T2 (In general a couple of these have certain fights you'll want two healers, good to have a cleric for aoe cleanse)
    RD/AP(if you can handle the scuttler pulls)
    DD (two healers helps alot at scarn)
    CC (some dps races here)
    DSM(Fairly healing intensive on caretaker after each recharge phase, will want two for plutonus)

    Any time!
    If you get stuck on certain bosses etc, feel free to ask, though I think there are likely many guides out by now.

    I would flip DD and RD/AP, DD is a joke outside of Scarn and even that is easy once you get the strat down, DD is by far the easiest. RD/AP can be a bit difficult just breaking into T2. I agree with the rest of your list up to DSM (haven't done it yet).
