The exact same model and an incredibly similar fight mechanic to Brutallus- I really think Blizzard is being lazy on this one.

well to be fair, this is the weekly bonus mini-raid. It's not MEANT to be a challenging encounter. It's the raid you can do a few weeks into heroics.

Not buying it. They are recycling part of the Brutallus encounter from Sunwell because relatively few raiders got far enough at the end of BC to run it, not to mention that abilities are intentionally kept similar with particular boss types. (Dragons have breath attacks and tail swipes, Pit lords use Meteor Strike) Even taking that into account, this is one encounter amongst a dozen or more.

How is that shocking? World of Warcraft, to me at least, is just 50% lazy design, and 50% new stuff.For instance, Args drop table. It is the same, exact thing as Archavons system, which was flawed to hell and back. These bosses shouldn't be dropping individual pieces of armor like they do, and instead should simply drop tokens of some sort that can be redeemed.Throughout the entire time I raided in WoTLK, I did Archavons whole dungeon nearly every week.And all I got to show for it was the mammoth, nothing else ever dropped that I could use. Not even a piece of gear for my spec that was tiers behind what I was at.
