Aug 11th 2009 8:30PM COMPLETELY agree. I was so disappointed when I finally got paletress after reading about the encounter on the forums. One of the things I love about this game was the endless creativity of the encounter design team, that was missing almost completely in this patch.
Even if it meant a choice of 5 bosses instead of 23 I would still support this idea.
Aug 6th 2009 7:06PM I don't know why you all are completely discounting taldaram's healing ability based on one 25% debuff. EotV heals for a total of 30,000 health over the 20 second duration.
So let's Taldaram say is hit with wounding strike. He immediately pop's vanish(2.5 s) and lays into Epoch with EotV the second it wears off. With 1500 health regenerated every second the 3.5 seconds remaining on the debuff only shaves 1125 off the final number ((1500%4x3x3)+1500x17=28,875) Additionally bloodthirst heals 2.25% instead of 3%. Hardly a game breaker for Taldaram.
It will be a long(if that term even applies here time is such a fickle thing,) drawn out fight, but epoch is fucked three ways past Sunday.
May 22nd 2009 11:13PM I think people are underestimating how much time/content killing arthas could turn out to be. Blizzard could conceivably turn in this into a long and arduous war across the continent. Culminating with Icecrown actually being attackable. Something Like AQ but with ALOT less lag.
Apr 21st 2009 8:25PM Anyone else find it funny he says "farewell mortals" before telling the Titans to go Death Star on our asses?
Apr 16th 2009 9:02PM Correct me if I'm wrong but that's the wrong shroud of darkness.
That's the right one.
With that being said the fight still goes to Hadronox. Even if Zuramat constantly renews the buff there's a 2 second casting time allowing Hadronox to kill enough sentries to stay miles ahead of him in health.
Our spider does indeed live another day.
Apr 11th 2009 9:38AM Before I start two things.
First, Im ignoring Tharons Curse of Life, the name implies it can only be used on living beings, and since svala is far from being alive...Tharon has way to many abilities anyway.
Second, people should atleast glance at cooldown and damage amounts. the ritual doesn't do anywhere near enough damage to one shot tharon.. that would be stupid if that were true whats the point of this series, svala kills the lich king game over.
The fight begins with Svala ritualizing tharon. Most of you are saying that Svala could simply spam this to victory. However once she's used it once , Tharon knows exactly were the banshees spawn, allowing him to drop some "gifts" before she can use the ritual again . Lets assume she can do so every 25 seconds.
Tharon gets the living sh*t beat out of him for 25 seconds. Since Svala is neither stupid nor suicidal, she is still at range when he's released, not wanting to be hit by her own ritual.
Tharon drops a poison cloud, runs, and kites her around a bit. After 20 seconds he pops her into a skeleton, extending svalas beat down, before he returns his flesh he leaves one of his "gifts" ( poison cloud) where the banshees will spawn.
Svala ritual is turned into a 2-3 second stun at best. Her damage is constantly cut by 50%, so even if she were to take to the skies she is no match for Tharon.
