This is probably debateable, although I'll grant that Maloriak is probably easier. However, Conclave is significantly easier than Omnotron, Magmaw, and everything past Halfus in BoT.

Also, this guide lacks a lot of useful information:
First, the AoE from the adds doesn't just hit significantly harder - it's lethal. A single tick will kill most raid members. Kiting them is the only option, which is very different from the normal mode.
If more information like this is needed in the guides, I'm happy to include it; however, we had a mix of melee and ranged, didn't need body and soul, and used a setup that gave us a bit of leeway on movement. I'm trying to avoid micromanaging raids in these, and simply presenting important information so that people can then figure out what exactly works best for their raid.
Second, the Wind Blast becomes lethal. Getting hit by Wind Blast dishes out ~100k damage. In 90% of cases, you will die getting hit by a single tick of Wind Blast. For this reason, it's strongly recommended that everyone use movement speed increasing abilities and get near the boss. If you stay near the boss, the amount you need to move is much less. Melee are ideal, but can get unlucky and taken out of melee range by tornado's at critical moments. Healer wise, priests are best with the ability to bubble before Storm Shield, use Prayer of Healing for powerful group healing, and Body and Soul to help avoid Wind Blast.
I say this.
Lastly, the damage is extreme rather than "pathetic" like it was before. Tanks will need cooldowns for any Permafrost above 5 stacks.
I say this too.
You'll want to coordinate Aura Mastery and raid-wide damage reducing cooldowns while stacking up to take advantage of healing cooldowns at Nezir.
I believe the stacking movement debuff is present on normal as well, although I could be wrong.
Not only that, but the frost patches now stack a debuff rather than providing an aura-type effect. Similar to heroic Rotface, every tick slows your movement speed by 20%. At 5 stacks, you will be stuck and will quickly die. To counter this, start spreading out with about 3-4 seconds left on Nezir's Ultimate.
Did not know this.
Oh, and your tank will need to rotate cooldowns on the plant platform. Anshal will hit for 250-300k unmitigated for the 15 seconds after his ult ends.
