Raid difficulty

Prior to Patch 3.2.0 this setting was controled by the Dungeon difficulty setting to determine if a raid was to be a normal mode (10 man raid) or heroic mode (25 man raid).

All Wrath of the Lich King raids introduced before Patch 3.2.0 will use 10-player mode for the former normal mode (10 man raids) or 25-player mode for the the former heroic mode (25 man raids).
All newer raids begining with the Crusaders' Coliseum can use the 10-player heroic mode and 25-player heroic mode settings to access harder versions of the raids, not to be confused with hard mode events /actions within the same raids.

Raid difficulty 6.0.png

The Warlords of Draenor removed Flexible mode, 10-player normal, 10-player heroic, 25-player normal, and 25-player heroic, bringing the six tier levels into four (with the added Mythic mode). Essentially 10-player and 25-player were being merged back into single normal mode which auto-tunes itself between 10-25 players in the way Flexible raids did. The same applies to the heroic versions and even the Raid Finder.

Mythic mode is the newly designed raid tier designed to be a 20-player mode for those that want an absolute challenge.

Patch changes

Prior to Patch 3.2.0 you had to use the Dungeon difficulty setting.
