Mar 23rd 2012 6:48PM Personally, I can't wait to hear what the story will be like. Garrosh doesn't deserve to die as things are RIGHT NOW, but as it seems like he will become corrupted, it will obviously change. But HOW he will be corrupted is the big question. Old gods? Fooled into drinking demon blood? Even mind controlled by someone, perhaps a forsaken, into striking a pact with the Burning Legion or committing horrible crimes? I just hope they don't screw it up and actually make a great storyline.

and Twill, not to crush your hopes... But the fragments of Val'anyr only drop on 25 man, so I'm not sure you can solo those shards before MoP :/ Maybe a few bosses are doable; I know I've done XT-002 on 25-man as a hunter by half-resetting him, but that would require you to be a night elf when doing it as a druid.
Mar 20th 2012 10:54AM Hi, Caribald here. Indeed, only hunter's can solo Algalon, and the reason is that the pet doesn't actually get phased, it only gets the Black Hole debuff (a small 10 second dot, ticking each second) as if it were inside. Basically the pet is wherever the master is, so with a pet tank you can stay outside of the Black Hole phase for the entire fight.
Therefore, it's also not entirely correct a hunter swaps pets for the Phase Punch debuff. The debuff doesn't wear off when the pet isn't out, so even with 5 turtles, some would eventually have to take that 5th stack. The pet swapping is simply because Algalon's melee damage is so insanely high that pet swapping is needed for more cooldowns (Cower, 40% damage reduction for 6 seconds. Shell shield, 50% damage reduction for 12 seconds. Last Stand, 30% health increase for 20 seconds (which also means 30% more healing, as Mend Pet heals for a percentage of the pet's total health.))
