Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW.com's series of fantasy death matches. This season's combatants come from the original five-man instances of Wrath of the Lich King.
How crazy does crazy get? Keristrasza's brand of crazy was mind-numbing enough to drop her from the skies in this week's Two Bosses Thunderdome. Eregos maintained the upper hand with a full 50% of the vote in this week's fantasy deathmatch.
"In her maddened state, I'd say Keristrasza is at a large disadvantage," wrote DruidGuard. "All too eager for her own death, driven mad and facing down one of the major blue dragons that helped imprison her, Keristrasza might very well eat a full Planar Shift burst to the face. Not to mention she'll be facing down a very angry Ley-Guardian Eregos every so often with his Enraged Assault.
"If she was on her A game, she might have a chance with careful kiting and freezing, but in her current mental state, I'm not sure how well she'd act. Ley-Guardian Eregos just seems too strong and cunning for this battle, so I'm afraid Ley-Guardian Eregos gets my vote on this one. Such a shame, but remember, this IS ultimately what Keristrasza wants."
Dissenting fans felt Keristrasza's manic mental state would ultimately see her through the battle. "Keristrasza is an extremely POed and crazy dragoness, and she's going against a dragon appointed by Malygos himself to guard the Oculus," observed Siaperas. "She may be confused about a lot of things, but I'm pretty sure she's fuming at the Blue Flight still. Eregos is toast in this fight.
"Eregos will slowly attack Keristrasza, bombarding her with his abilities, smugly taunting her, paying no attention to the fact that rather than try to run (kite) or stand back and fight, she's taking the beating and flying directly to him. Only when she's on him does he realize what she's going to do. She doesn't attack with the flurry of spells commonly used on Eregos. She shreds him. Her claws tear at his wings, and she quickly latches on his throat.
"The two of them crash into the Oculus, with Eregos unable to scream as Keristrasza shakes him by his neck like a pit bull with a chew toy. Slowly he freezes while she tears at him, leaving him a frozen, multilated monument atop the Oculus. In my opinion, Eregos doesn't have a chance against the dragon who still has the passion of a red with the magic of a blue."
Join us this afternoon for the second match of the Original Wrath Five-Man season of Two Bosses Enter, One Boss Leaves.
