Spirit Kings spawn order

Dear Blizzard,

It appears that your recent comments about Spirit Kings spawning in a fixed order is untrue, as tonight we had two different orders on 25m:

Qiang/Sub/Zian/Meng
Qiang/Sub/Meng/Zian

Thought you might like to know.

Sincerely,
Lynckk

noticed as well the fixed order only made second boss set.

to note. zian before meng is considerably easier. Reason being

Sub, you need to spread out. meng you need to group up. zian you need to spread out. If you get meng 3rd. then you might get 1 occurrence of pinning arrow and maddening shout at same time. (which is not nearly as bad as if you got meng 2nd and had to deal with him entirety of both zian and sub phases, jesus that was bad.

Also, when meng 3rd now, you have to deal with the maddening shouts and heal through extra damage from zians splash damage you should be spread for. lots of extra damage there. We often saw at least 1-2 die from overkill because of the raid taking a splash bolt during maddening shout from zian.

When zian is 3rd. you pretty much never ever deal with conflicting mechanics. you transition from a boss you spread for, into a boss you spread for, into a boss you group up for (but previous bosses do NOT retain the abilities they made you spread for).

meng retains the ability you need to group up for which hurts the bosses you should spread for. that was always the biggest difficulty factor people spam reset for. will anyone reset for meng 3rd? probably not. will it be a harder kill than zian 3rd, yes. Although not nearly as hard as meng 2nd heh.

It was correct for us (Qiang/Sub/Zian/Meng), though it only got pulled once - so maybe we just got lucky.

i think by fixed order was just the first two because that seemed to be the deal breaker with that fight

Had Qiang/Sub/Meng/Zian last night as well. Gotta just be locking Subetai into second place. I'm guessing this was done for the benefit of heroic mode, because in normal it's now incredibly easy compared to Elegon.

Normal Spirit Kings has always been the easiest fight in there, on heroic, the order matters more than anything else.

Wednesday night, we had Qiang/Sub/Zian/Meng on one attempt, and Qiang/Sub/Meng/Zian on another attempt. Led us to believe there was a bug, since that clearly didn't reflect a "fixed order".

Fight is a joke no matter what order

It's fine now since it's killable regardless of which order the last 2 come in.

The problem before was that if you didn't get Subetai 2nd you would pretty much have to run out and reset the fight. You'd have to do that over and over again. Now you don't have to.
