The OverAchiever: The incredible Glory of the Hero


VERONICA: So what made you decide to be a cop?
LEO: Uh, well, it's the same old tired story. I was sent here by the agency to do a strip-o-gram for Inga, an armed robbery call came in, I figured I was in uniform anyway, so what the hell.
-- Veronica Mars, "Silence of the Lamb"

Sooner or later I'm going to start running out of B-movie titles for this series, but that day is not today. We're all set with Halls of Lightning, so let's head to Halls of Stone to continue amassing achievements for Glory of the Hero. Again, if you've missed any of our previous installments, you can catch 'em here:
HALLS OF STONE

The achievements here are somewhat more difficult than their counterparts in Halls of Lightning, and demand significantly more effort from your tank and DPS in particular.

One Boss Leaves: General Bjarngrim commands the field


Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW.com's series of fantasy death matches. This season's bosses come from the five-man instances of Wrath of the Lich King.

Well folks, we've had some tight battles lately -- and this wasn't one of them. In a rather predictable display of superiority, the Hall of Lightning's General Bjarngrim outclassed Sjonnir the Ironshaper from the Halls of Stone in this week's Two Bosses Enter, One Boss Leaves.

Loyal Two Bosses fan Siaperas is always good for a fair recounting of the battle."If I knew nothing else about them, I would wage my bet on General Bjarngrim based on how Loken assigned these men," he wrote. "Loken would want somebody who could handle himself but have good managerial skills to oversee an operation like the Forge of Wills. However, he would want to protect himself with some of his most dangerous servants. I'm not saying that Bjarngrim is just muscle and Sjonnir is all brain -- they're both very intelligent and powerful opponents -- but in Loken's eyes, I suspect he sees Bjarngrim as the more dangerous opponent in a fight. And I would agree.

"I do not think this would be so one-sided as Bjarngrim winning without Sjonnir getting his licks in. The adds would bring some nice flavor, but between Whirlwind and Chain Lightning, they're not going to be much help. What's going to win the day for Bjarngrim is his ability to think on his feet, to put the most hurt on his opponents. Sjonnir puts too much reliance on his minions. He'll be able to kite Bjarngrim around a little and buy himself time, but still he won't do too much between Bjanrgrim's Spell Reflect, Intercept and Pummel. In the end, Sjonnir just can't deliver the same amount of hurt to Bjarngrim as he will be receiving, and Bjarngrim wins."

Two Bosses Enter: General Bjarngrim vs. Sjonnir the Ironshaper


Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW.com's series of fantasy death matches. This season's bosses come from the five-man instances of Wrath of the Lich King.

This week's electrically charged boss battle is a real shocker: General Bjarngrim from the Halls of Lightning versus Sjonnir the Ironshaper of the Halls of Stone. There'll be adds and sparks galore in this deathmatch between two Iron Vrykul.

The ground rules:
  • Assume that these foes share similar levels, health pools and a comparative overall damage output.
  • This match takes place in neutral territory.
  • Both bosses will get their usual adds, but Brann Bronzebeard is out of the picture.
  • Don't get caught up in game mechanics and what actual players might do in each encounter.
Focus on the three S's: style, story and scale.
