Along with that they added one for Lei Shin, which said defeated before patch 5.4, which goes to show that after the Thunder King patch there will be another 'story' patch like 5.1 before the next raid.


Yeah, GC announced 5.3 wouldn't have a new raid tier (and therefore no new season) awhile back in his twitter. Didn't make big news though, people were more worried about mage and warrior changes lol.

I'm hoping 5.3 at least brings things like new instances. Supposedly it might have that "cool unannounced feature" GC hinted about.

...I... am not liking bear tanks for some reason. Maybe it's her or maybe it's me but... RL is pretty much telling me I should've tanked the fight. Granted the cleave means low Vengeance, but I had threat within 40 seconds of the fight. >_>; I even HoS to clear the threat, and she doesn't really charge to the other bosses.


I *LOVE* Spirit Kings, but it really is an encounter where Tank needs to pay attention - only thing DPS need to do is get out of bad stuff and break people out of arrows. About the threat thing, have you tried using HoS before entering your burst cycle? Usually helps me a bit when I'm Retting out that fight.

I think you've just got a bad Bear. Only time I've done Spirit Kings on reg, we had a Bear tank it; he never lost aggro, though he did hesitate on a few Flanks. It really is a tank-dependent fight, though everyone does need to keep eyes open for various things. Downside to that is that you can actually pay too much attention to mechanics, and move too early and have your tank go the other way.

It doesn't really matter who has aggro for the first boss of Spirit Kings, though, does it? He doesn't do normal melees.

He does cleaves, but it can affect me if Flanking Orders comes up and the bear wants to rip it to the other side I was going to take it (it happened).

That's a coordination issue, then. Raid leader should be calling where to move the boss so that everyone is in sync.

Actually, I think that was one of the few times he was silent for some reason or he was rambling about something else.

My bets are on a lead-up to Garrosh's corruption.

Don't say that.

I swear if they pull "LOL I WAS CORRUPTED!!" with Garrosh I will have an aneurism.

Immediately going from Skyrim to WoW is visually jarring - I now have a migraine. >_<

Eh. Sha energies can't take root unless it's already there. And Garrosh has already shown himself more than willing to take hold of the corruption, believing he can control it. It's natural progression that the corruption is more than he can handle, and overwhelms him.

Either that, or maybe the Horde becomes so horrified by his continued experiments that Vol'jin is able to stage an open revolt. Every one of the Horde leaders has reason to hate him already, except for orcs. And all it would take is Thrally-sue to step into the picture to get them all against him.

Although that still leaves the question of what happens to make both the Horde and Alliance on his doorstep at the very same time. It's not like Varian is nearly as gung-ho to do more than contain Horde expansion these days.

Actually... It would be really awesome if Garrosh landed near mortal blows against Thrall and/or Jaina. That would be something that would leave both sides without their major character capable of leveling Org to the ground.

I'm all for Jaina getting mortally wounded. For Thrall though, Aggra should die. That leaves Thrall broken far worse and adds a little diversity. No DragonSoul-duken for you, Green Jesus!

Sigh... freaking pugs can't handle avoiding the stuff from spirit kings. No serious raiding guild in my server too.

The Paladin has some vertical bars either side of his action bars tracking things like trinket procs, AW/GoAK, etc ..
