How to make it epic

As I was browsing my favorite blogs, as I tend to do. I came across this question posed by Matticus, what makes an encounter epic?

It got me thinking about not just what epic is, but how to make what you are already doing now epic. Why wait for the next patch, the next instance, or the next raid? Enjoy the moment you are in, make it epic.

I am not sure where I will go with this for sure. My thoughts at the moment are leaning towards trying a ten player level raid of level 10 to 12 characters for a deadmines run. Not twinks, just quest rewards and normal crafted items for their level. I have not tried it yet, but as far as I can tell the minimum level is 10 and the maximum number of players is also 10. I already have a level 11 druid sitting around, now I just need to recruit 9 victims volunteers. Then we will see how it goes.
