I think the last boss will be a corrupted Thorim...---SPOILERS---...because at that end of the chain for Sons of Hodir, he was taken captive into Ulduar.My thoughts? His proto-drake, Veranus, was taken captive to. I see an aerial fight above Ulduar, in non-controlled vehicles that you can use your normal abilities on. No idea how that'd work for melee, though. Guess they can just sit there and imagine themselves stunlocking me over and over when we go hit the BGs afterwards.

I certainly hope that if there is a vehicle encounter in Ulduar that, as you suggest, it is an "uncontrolled" vehicle encounter in which we are free to use our abilities. Nothing feels more cheesy from a design/balance standpoint than vehicle encounters in PvE (I love vehicles in WG however). I simply think it's a lazy way for designers to balance an encounter (remove all the unknown variables by making the characters all have the same set of abilities by dropping each them in a vehicle). I do very well on the Malygos fight, but I hate phase three for that very reason. I didn't level to 80 just to have an encounter hinge on my ability to NOT use my abilities.

Everything you wrote after your Spoiler alert was already said in the actual post. Learn to read ya thick thickhead mcthicky.I know you talk about the people that were taken who will now probably be bosses, but how about the monsters that Loken used to take them in the first place. I see a Naxx style wing raid, each wing relating to a temple that was overrun and ending with the creature that captured that temple in stormpeaks.

"---SPOILERS---...because at that end of the chain for Sons of Hodir, he was taken captive into Ulduar."The article says all ready states that."Thorim and his blue protodrake, Veranus, are incapacitated and taken to Ulduar by Loken's command, saying he has plans for them."Although let me say, an aerial battle with regular abilities would be pretty awesome. Maybe make it like the discs during Maly?

'twas my bad. I scrolled too far while reading the article and just reached Freya, and assumed the tail end of Thorim's text was just the intro.

And by corrupted Thorim, you mean Dony Tanza, then yes.

The vehicle thing can be done like the quest that gets Thorim to talk to you.Harpoon your way up to a guy and kill them. Maybe have it so you can speed up the mount and so pull along side an enemy and melt their face. Have enemy melee and casters in there. So your healers have to stay near people and tanks can actually taunt them off your drake and onto theirs for a fight. Lots of possibilities.
