Two Bosses Enter: Lich King barely catches Eadric, moves on to Tyrannus

Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in's series of fantasy death matches. Your votes, along with the decisions of our distinguished judges (representing staff and readers), determine who makes it out alive. Grab a seat, and let's get ready to rumble!

The Lich King inside the Two Bosses Thunderdome? Isn't that an automatic faceroll to victory? Not for the Halls of Reflection version of Arthas. It took the reader vote to break a lock-up in the judges' panel and send Eadric the Pure packing. We'll find out how Eadric almost managed to get away -- but first, let's look at the next set of matches in the ICC-5/ToC season. Seeding for the quarter-finals has been determined by the reader vote.
  • Match 1: Scourgelord Tyrannus (77.4%) vs. Lich King (5-man, HoR version) (56.5%)
  • Match 2: ToC PvP champions (68.2%) vs. Devourer of Souls (55.5%)
  • Match 3: The Black Knight (61.7%) vs. Argent Confessor Paletress (58.8%)
  • Match 4: Reader vote to bring back any ICC-5/ToC season loser

Join us after the break for the judges' decisions in Lich King vs. Eadric the Pure, then cast your vote in the first match of the next round: Scourgelord Tyrannus versus the Lich King (5-man, HoR version). Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls ... Dyin' time's here.

Two Bosses Enter: Grand Champions gang up on Marwyn; Eadric faces Lich King

Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in's series of fantasy death matches. It's a brand new season and a brand new format, introducing judges from and the WoW community at large -- and of course, your votes. Grab a seat, and let's get ready to rumble!

Last week's matchup between Marwyn and the entire ToC PvP Champions team was a good set-up for this week's deathmatch between Eadric the Pure and the Lich King (5-man version). It's all about balance. Yes, lore comes into play. But inside the Thunderdome, lore isn't the only factor. Every point must be balanced against the others.

This week, a group of five adventurers -- the ToC Grand Champions -- made short work of Marwyn (just as your own groups probably do whenever you face Marwyn in a random). Step into the Thunderdome with us after the break, where we'll hear the judges' decisions and consider what many of you have been waiting for: the first of many bouts involving some version of the Lich King himself. Oh yes, it's finally time ... And in the words of Dr. Dealgood: "Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls ... Dyin' time's here."

The Queue: Simple things

Welcome back to The Queue,'s daily Q&A column where the team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Alex Ziebart will be your host today.

Today is a day of, apparently, quick questions and quick answers. Most of the questions asked were fairly straightforward and not particularly involved. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing is really up to you, but it is what it is: simple. I planned to embed a cartoon at the top of this video, but the aspect ratio made it gigantic if I used our standard width, so there's a link instead.

whalt asked...

"Any idea if prior season PvP weapons will ever be available from honor/arena points and not require an arena rating like the old Glad weapons were back in BC?"
