Two Bosses Enter: Altairus vs. Eregos

In Two Bosses Enter, WoW Insider's series of fantasy death matches, the bosses of World of Warcraft face off in the squared circle. Your vote determines who wins and claims the season title.

"What!?" I hear you ask, trembling with rage. "Eregos!? He was a Wrath of the Lich King boss!" He sure was. Not only was he a Wrath boss, he was the winner of the first season of Wrath of the Lich King's Two Bosses Enter, long before our previous wild card, Scourgelord Tyrannus, was even in the game.

"Uggghhh!" I hear you curse, trembling with only slightly less rage than before. "We've already had a Wrath boss wild card! You are just the worst!" Well, perhaps this bit of information will please you: There are no more Wrath bosses amidst the remaining wild cards. In fact, neither of them have appeared in Two Bosses Enter before at all. They could be anything. Anything.

Who wins: Altairus or Eregos?
Altairus3475 (39.0%)
Eregos5444 (61.0%)


In last week's matchup, we saw Grim Batol's Erudax clash with Throne of Tides' Lady Naz'jar. There was a clear winner throughout the voting process, though it wasn't nearly the landslide that was Ozruk's win at the beginning of the tournament weeks ago.

Two Bosses Enter: Ozruk and Asaad kick off Cataclysm season one

In Two Bosses Enter, WoW Insider's series of fantasy death matches, the bosses of World of Warcraft face off in the squared circle. Your vote determines who wins and claims the season title.

No, ladies and gentlemen, you are not hallucinating. Due to popular demand Two Bosses Enter is making its comeback today, pitting boss against boss to separate the best from the rest. Every Monday we list the rules and abilities, then you vote for the winner. As each winning boss moves on, we create the new match up and the battle continues until only one boss is left standing.

In this first season of the Cataclysm world tour, there are a few details of the format you should know about.
  • Not every boss is included in this season of Two Bosses Enter. We've chosen 16 participants. If your favorites are missing from the roster, let us know in the comments and we'll try to include them next season.
  • Of those 16 participants, you only know 12 of them. There are four wild cards in the roster, and you won't know who they are until the week they enter the ring for the first time.
  • We've returned to a purely poll-based system of determining winners. However, particularly creative comments about the encounter will be highlighted when the winner is announced the following week.
  • You can see this season's tournament ladder right here.


Now, on to the matchup: Ozruk versus Asaad! Ready? Fight!

One Boss Leaves: Illidan vs Kel'Thuzad wrap up


Well, well, well, who doesn't love a surprise ending? Despite rampant and on going accusations that I have fixed this deathmatch series in Illidan's favor since the beginning (which is laughable because I only took over the feature a few months ago), it looks like Scourge of the Outland was, say it with me now, "not prepared."

Kel'Thuzad, the Archlich of the Plaguelands, trusted lieutenant of Arthas, final boss of Naxxramas and of pre-BC WoW, laid the smack down on all the haters. Two bosses may have entered, but only one has left. Final results below.



That wraps up this series we started all the way back in June with 32 bosses. Each pair entered a neutral arena and you got to vote who walked away the victor. Whether based on abilities, lore or random poll clicking, you chose the ultimate winner.

When Wrath of the Lich King launches, we'll be bringing about another round of Two Bosses Enter with a mix of all new bosses and some returning favorites. Until then, thanks to everyone who participated and made this a fun event for everyone involved.

Special thanks the reader Ian for the pointing us to the pic of Kel'Thuzad above. Kel's publicist would be proud.

One Boss Leaves: Illidan vs C'Thun wrap up


The last two of the Final Four have entered the Arena for a raid boss deathmatch and only one has left alive. This was one of the most anticipated fights in the series as the bane of the Outlands, Illidan Stormrage faced the Old God of Ahn'Qiraj, C'Thun. The debate over who would be victorious raged but in the end, Illidan walked out the winner.

While some readers voted based on powers available to each opponent ("shear ftw!", "no one survives the eye beam of death!"), others cast their lot based on lore ("c'thun is an old god and undefeatable", "illidan is clever and prepared"). Whatever the reason, it was clear from the voting results seen below that C'Thun was not prepared.

Up next, the final battle of the series. The end boss of pre-2.4 Burning Crusade, Illidan Stormrage vs the end boss of pre-BC WoW, Kel'thuzad. Which boss will leave the arena alive? Which boss will reign supreme? Which boss will be sharding his purplez for greenz when the Wrath expansion launches? Cast your vote in the final installment of Two Bosses Enter!

One Boss Leaves: Sapphiron vs Kel'thuzad wrap up


Last week the first showdown of the Final Four went head-to-head in a neutral Arena. Did the undead Blue dragon Sapphiron overcome his Naxxrammas neighbor, the Archlich of the Plaugelands Kel'thuzad? Or did Kel'thuzad overwhelm his opponent in the battle of the undead bosses?

Though both bosses have heavy frost based powers, they also both have heavy frost resistance. That leaves their remaining abilities of which Kel'thuzad's Shadow Fissure was considered by commenters to be Sapphiron's downfall. The master claims victory over his guard.

The Archlich moves on to the final battle of the series next week to face off against the winner of tonight's titanic battle between the notorious scourge of the Outlands, Illidan Stormrage and possibly the most difficult boss in the game, the old god, C'thun. With only two weeks to go before we crown a winner, who will be the last boss to leave?

One Boss Leaves: Princess Huhuran vs C'thun wrap up


Last week, Princess Huhuran faced off against her Ahn'Qiraj boss, C'thun. Unfortunately, the Old God was too much for his faithful lieutenant and she fell to his eye beam of death. There was some debate on whether she was too big to be swallowed (where she could actually damage him in what passes for his stomach.) But despite some well written comments in favor of Huhuran, the votes have decided that C'thun emerges the winner of this round.

The Final Four are now set to face off as we get closer to determining who is the baddest boss in all of WoW. Next week, Sapphiron, the skeletal frost wyrm enters the arena against Kel'Thuzad, the Archlich of the Plaugelands for an undead deathmatch (un-deathmatch? undeadmatch?). In two weeks, we'll have what is probably the most anticipated fight of the series: Illidan vs C'thun. And the week after that we'll have the final showdown to see which boss will reign supreme on Two Bosses Enter.

One Boss Leaves: Illidan vs Twin Emperors wrap up


Last week, Illidan Stormrage the Betrayer, entered the arena against double threat of Ahn'Qiraj, the Twin Emperors. Did Illidan's Shear decimate the Qiraji brothers or did the Lord of the Outlands fall to the siblings' superior numbers?

Reader Dierle summed it up well: [Illidan would] use his normal elf form to slice up the melee vulnerable twin, and his giant demon caster form to blast apart the magic vulnerable twin. Even if they DID get allowed to use their proximity heal, Illidan could throw down his warglaives and use his fire elementals to keep them separated. That would make it game over for the Twin Emperors.

Illidan moves on to the Final Four. His opponent will be determined when the voting opens tomorrow in the death match of Ahn'Qiraj bosses: Princess Huhuran vs. C'thun.

One Boss Leaves: Ragnaros vs. Kel'Thuzad wrap up


Last week the Firelord of Molten Core, Ragnaros entered the Arena to face down the Archlich of the Plagueland, Kel'Thuzad. Did Ragnaros' Magma Blast burn the competition into a crisp or did the lethal combination of Shadow Fissure and frost attacks send the Elemental Lord to Blackrock Mountain in defeat?

This was a close one, but Kel'Thuzad's dark and cold arsenal overwhelms Ragnaros' fiery bag of tricks. The lieutenant of the Old Gods could not escape Kel's Shadow Fissure. And even if he could, Kel's multiple shadow and frost attacks would overwhelm Rag's limited fire abilities.

The Archlich moves on to the Final Four to face off against Sapphiron in the battle of the Undead Shadow/Frost bosses. Tomorrow, the infamous Illidan Stormrage goes head-to-head with The Twin Emperors of Ahn'Qiraj. And the winner of that epic battle will face off the winner of next week's Princess Huhuran/C'thun deathmatch. With only a few weeks left, we will soon see who will be the winner of Two Bosses Enter.

One Boss Leaves: Sapphiron vs. Hakkar wrap up


Last week, the undead frost wyrm of Northrend, Sapphiron squared off against the Troll god of Zul'Gurub, Hakkar the Soulflayer in a neutral arena to see who is the top boss. Did the Blue Dragon freeze out the competition or did the Faceless One slither into victory?

Though Hakkar has a mean damage/healing combo and an earlier Enrage timer, the votes confirm that Sapphiron's superior dps output and own healing & Enrage abilities would allow him to triumph over the Blood God. There was some debate about Hakkar's abilty to mind control the undead, but in the end only one boss leaves the arena.

Sapphiron moves on to the final four where he will face off against the winner of our next Two Bosses Enter showdown. Who will win when the Firelord of Molten Core, Ragnaros goes up against Kel'Thuzad, the Archlich of the Plaguelands? Voting starts tomorrow.
