Orzuk is easy, but learning him isn't unless you're an experienced raider. My first time was with my guild's main tank. We probably wiped 20 times. I understood and perfected the mechanics of it after about a dozen or so attempts, but our tank struggled a bit more with it. One tiny slip up and it's a wipe. I enjoy the fight now that everyone understands it.My only complaint about the instance is in fact, the last boss. I can never see the shadow or rumbling or whatever it is I'm supposed to see that shows where the giant rocks are going to land. My computeris pretty powerful, but I still struggle to see the animation with everything else that's going on.I don't mind dying if I stand in the big purple circles, but when giant rocks land on me seemingly without warning and one shot me, it feels more like a mechanic fail than a player fail. I feel like in order to handle that fight properly, I'd have to do maxzoom to like 5x what's normal, and that makes it difficult the follow the other mechanics of the fight.I never see the rocks themselves until it's too late to even Heroic Leap out. It's not fun for me, and I feel as if it's out of my control.

I think you have to keep an eye on her the whole fight so you can see where the rocks are headed. I've succumbed to them before, too, but always happened while I was looking away.

I too have problems with this, and I have my video settings set to "Ultra". Depending on where you are standing during the fight, really seems to affect whether or not you can even see the "rumbling".And I know that it isn't just me, because I was in Stonecore last night with a guild group, and we had 2 people die to the same boulder, and 1 to another, but it seemed to have a lot to do with the placement of the void zones.My only solution: Keep moving around when she puts up the boulders.

"Ozruk is easy....we probably wiped 20 times."I think it's safe to say that if you wipe 20 times while learning a fight, it isn't really very easy.

The fight is easy once learned. We one shot it every time now. Even in a PUG, if the tank dies, I can Fury tank it because Orzuk does virtually no melee damage. That's generally what ends up happening. As I stated, it's a hard fight to learn if you're not an experienced raider.You couldn't say that about Loken when Wrath first launched.
