The whole issue here is that when we fight Mannoroth in the dungeon, we have the help of both Illidan Stormrage and Tyrande Whisperwind. Without them, we would have been overrun by smaller demons in an instant, and we would have had to tank Mannoroth ourselves. Illidan has a 90% dodge chance buff the entire time he tanks Mannoroth, and I'm pretty sure Asira doesn't have that. Without the two of them, Asira is taking on the full brunt of Mannoroth's felblade, and his massive following of demons (which, as we've seen, range from Fel Guards to Dreadlords and beyond).While she may still be able to do a lot of damage to him with Varo'then's sword lodged in Mannoroth's chest, Mannoroth's full fury is turned on her the entire time. This is NOT a fight she can win.

Remember Andrew, the NPCs that help us in the 2 encounters are also helping the 2 bosses. So Illidan and Tyrande will be helping Asira, while Thrall will be... Umm... "Helping" Manny.While Asira has the ability to do this quite well with just Illidan and Tyrande's help, as previous commenters have stated; Thrall is on Mannoroth's side. Considering how big Mannoroth's hit box is, and how big an area Thrall's totem covers, I'd say Manny has a pretty dawn good chance of reaching a full 10 stacks of Thrall's buff, increasing his damage and health by 50%. May not mean a whole ton with how well Illidan tanks him, but considering he has ~98 million health baseline, adding another ~49 mil to that will just make Asira /afk from boredom.Once Manny notices that Asira is AFK, he can throw out an empowered Fel Firestorm and watch Asira DIAF. Assuming of course that Tyrande has enough arrows to keep all of those demons at bay for the entended time...TL;DR version... Thrall buffs Manny with totem; Manny gets major health increase; Asira goes /afk out of boredom; Manny pwns her with a surprise Fel Firestorm + add overrun combo; Thrall pats himself on the back for being such a good Shaman...
