OK. So how exactly would the Hogger fight work then?How would Algalon work? How would people get the achievement if you need to see / down that boss before? Wouldn't that limit the people who can get the achievement for experiencing all the memories. Have you seen how many memories there are? Do you think Blizzard would take their time to go and make 20 + (random number) versions of the same fight for a normal instance.And then if you are running it you have a chance of having to explain that fight every single time to people who had never done Onyxia, Algalon, Archimonde and the list goes on.

You only need to slay five of them.And really, I don't care if it would have taken longer. Paletress is essentially a Mograine-Whitemane fight right now. (Whitemane? Paletress? If you didn't see that connection, . .)Run in, fight her, she decides to sleep-heal-and-summon-her-pet. This could have been a wonderful fight, but I find myself facing Shadow VanShadow, not Edwin VanCleef's memory. I remember him being a fighting that took some tanking skill at a low level. Not "pick him up and heal the spell." I remember Hakkar being a fun, interesting way to kill a boss. Now, it's "pick him up and heal the spell." The list goes on.Should have just given us a Shadow Paletress to fight, named "Memory of Repentence" and given it the abilities. Other than baiting us with fighting Shadow Onyxia like a bad form of Shadow Lugia in Pokemon.

@AdamantI agree that it would be nice if the shadows used mini versions of their abilities but what happens when you get Boss Y and half the party hasn't fought that one before? How do you explain a fight WHILE you're doing it? I guess they could've changed the whole fight such that she summons the Memory before you pull, giving you a change to make sure everyone's on the same page with tactics, but still... Hell, I'm lucky if I get a PUG that knows to stop DPSing her and kill the Memory. ;)Overall, I like that we get Paletress and Eadric to spice things up, along with the different combos of jousters.

Random boss encounters too hard?Wow, good job they never had an Opera event in Kharazan then...

It doesn't have to do exactly the same spells, just a handful of the abilities that make that boss uniquelike Memory of Onyxia could tail swipe and firebreathmemory of hogger could stun and summon gnoll addsthey shouldn't have made all those bosses do the same spell, that's not a memory, that's an illusion

So there's a boss in the last dungeon in northrend that has a boss that has 20 forms and players are required to learn each of them if they want to kill them..... Are people really whinning about this now? It would be awesome to have a setup like that, what better way to keep the instance fresh past those first 3-4 runs in the first week, never to venture back?Why is it that the idea of actually having to work out a boss and use some skill is such an anethma to WoW and alot of players at the moment?
