A few days ago a leaked photo of Mists of Pandaria‘s box art was posted online and with the raiding testing announced, it is clear that this expansion is ready to be launched.
As this expansion comes to an end, lets look back on Cataclysm with Be MOP’s Superlatives
Today we are looking at my picks for the best and worst Raid Fight. I was going to add more but it would end up being way too long for just one post, so I’m breaking it up into parts to be used for a later date.
Best/worst Raid Fight
Over this expansion I started raiding the current content, and I have seen all the raid fights in appropriate gear level.
Out of all the four raids (I dont count BH) two boss fights stood out in my mind.
The best raid fight in Cataclysm goes to Baleroc!
This in an amazing fight, every member of the raid has a job to do. The DPS has to group in pairs next to crystals, where the healers would heal them to get a buff needed to seriously heal the constantly growing hp of the offtank.
The players all helped killing the gatekeeper in a completely new way.
The entire fight works like a clockwork, with the focus exclusively on the players with no RNG to worry about.
Once everyone got their part down (which showed the raid’s teamwork), the boss was a push over.
The Worst Boss Fight
You now know my favorite fight, but whats the worst? Well coincidentally the worst boss fight is also housed in the Fire lands
I did not like this fight from day one and she was one of the reasons I experienced burnout in Firelands.
Remember how I said that Baleroc made me feel like I was killing him in a new way?
Well I didn’t get that feeling for Lady Beth, The fight starts and the first thing she does is retreat to her web. While two or three players are blessed with the chance to do battle with her for most of the fight the rest of us have to deal with her adds.
Most of the fight is just trash pulls and I was always, Always, ALWAYS had to deal with the tiny spiders because we almost never had a hunter on hand. I had to AoE tiny orange spiders who are crawling on a red and orange background for ten times.
At the end of the fight, only then does the rest of the raid burns the boss down, while it Beth just does AoE damage.
That’s it, just terrible boss fight.
I have more Superlatives in mind (Best/worst 5man, NPC, remade zone, and any others that comes to my mind after posting this) that I will be posting as the expansion reaches towards its end
But I want to know that your favorite/worst Raid boss in this expansion in the comment below.
P.S I have two great news that happened last week.
First, I got a letter from New Hampshire’s State House, It is now official, I and now a candidate for a seat for NH State of Representatives of the Hillsborough county.
From the stats and information the WordPress gives me, there are three people who goes to my blog who can legally vote for me: my Dad, my Mom, and me on my mobile phone later in the day.
But that doesn’t mean that you , non-New Hampshirite can’t join in. Currently I don’t have a logo or a catchphrase to put on the buttons I’ll be ordering. If you can think of one, let me know in the comments as well.
Secondly, Friday’s post pushed my total view OVER NINE THOUSAND!!!
I would like to thank everyone who ever visited this site, it really made my weekend.
Be MOP focuses on the lead up to the next World of Warcraft expansion with my own reflections about the last dying moments of the Catalysm’s Twilight Hour as we look into the Mist of the new day. Updates Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays
