I honestly wonder what the difference is. I haven’t really thought about it much. I only ever did it a handful of times, but I liked the Oryx encounter in King’s Fall. It was difficult, but a single mistake didn’t guarantee a wipe. And the actually mechanics of the fight were fun to execute.

Riven isn’t “hard,” it’s just annoying. Like, oh, he flinched so I missed my eye and now we’re fucked.

Oryx felt like a battle. Yes, there were semi-complex movements and mechanics involved, but the majority of the difficulty came from battling waves of dangerous enemies.

Riven doesn’t feel like a battle. You could take all the enemies out of the encounter, and it would still be a repetitive nuisance with wipe after wipe being caused by miscounting the eyes or slamming the wrong spot on a staircase. There is plenty of filler combat in it, but the encounter doesn’t hinge on any of it.
