Apr 5th 2010 8:50AM While reading the art of war, and The art of war (Business Edition) you would understand why some would see it foolish to not take advantage of any tactical edge that you can to defeat your enemy.
That being said, as a former raid leader, and now a simple pug and play, I cant rely on the ping of vent and a raid leaders reaction time to reading his own Bossmods, to define my ability to bleed my characters dry of threat/dps/heals.
I need to know if I can get off one more starfire before and agro reset, or an incoming aoe makes me run.
I need to know when the boss will become targetable and attackable, so that i can pop all of my Paladins propper cooldowns for that perfect moment to start piling on threat. /avoiding.
And i need to see when that AoE is incoming to make sure the raid has been topped off, and to switch from hots to nourish.
Yes all of these thing would be learned if the only thing I was concerned about was my actions. But it isnt. I learn and use the fights to help out other players in the game. whether I have to anticipate threat or taunt changes, or heals for those who cant seem to see that they are standing in fire, or track cooldowns on eclipse.
(P.S. If you have to wait to be at 15% to realize that you shouldnt be where you are, Having bossmods will help you survive, AND help (healers mostly, but) other raids appreciate you more.)

Dec 4th 2009 5:47PM yeah, but it looks like someone just did a bad job of peppering the stats to look like he did it.

Did Bliz and Bliz centered blogs created a buzz about this to keep up interest in getting achievements...(one of the few reasons to keep playing over and over gain?)
Not only is it a manufactured achieve list, but its done with the idea of advertising to keep your subscriptions rolling.....
yay for conspiracy theories!

Lich King Heroic:
He has killed 5 of them. and only 5, which means he was in that fight 5 times.
In his statistics,
Call of the Crusade
--Victories over Argent Confessor Paletress (Heroic Trial of the Champion)
--Victories over Eadric the Pure (Trial of the Champion)
Unless he was able to kill them all, get credit for them, and not kill the paltress, and then get the achievement through a glitch, oh yeah, and kill all the other bosses once (in order to get their achieves, its a fake.
I have been wrong before, so if it can be done, can someone explain?
