Two Bosses Enter: Echo of Baine vs. Peroth'arn

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

With a resounding roar of the crowd and the spectacular boom of the fireworks overhead, Season 3 of Two Bosses Enter has begun! Our first matchup mixes up the past and the future in one fell swoop by bringing two combatants from two edges of time into the same arena. From the bleak future of End Time comes the coalesced fear, anger, and sorrow of tauren chieftain Baine Bloodhoof, a powerful entity lingering on in an Azeroth obliterated by Deathwing. Plucked from the past is Peroth'arn, a satyr guard of the Well of Eternity, placed in the majestic palace courtyard to ward off invaders of the Well rituals. Both of these combatants have their work cut out for them in this matchup.

Since many bosses are being designed these days with area of effect abilities and environmental obstacles that must be overcome in order to defeat the encounter, I want to stress the rules a little bit on Two Bosses Enter -- environmental abilities and cool stuff are fair game and always have been fair game. The arena can be whatever you want it to be. For instance, Echo of Baine has a very cool ability with which he destroys platforms floating in lava. From here on out, the mages of Dalaran employed by the great Tirion Fordring on his Board of Tournament Creation and Trusts will now magically transform the arena into whatever the combatants could reasonably ask for. Remember this when discussing the outcome, readers.

Who wins? Echo of Baine vs. Peroth'arn
Echo of Baine (End Time)2078 (65.2%)
Peroth'arn (Well of Eternity)1107 (34.8%)

One Boss Leaves: C'Thun vs. Mother Shahraz wrap-up

Our last Two Bosses Enter deathmatch was simply a no-contest: C'Thun defeated Mother Shahraz with little difficulty, coming away the winner with a healthy 86% of the vote. This should come as no surprise to anyone who's had a chance to try the encounter for themselves, as C'Thun is a tricky customer and a standard boss would have little clue as to how to handle him.

With this competition complete and Mother Shahraz leaving our arena in disgrace, I'm happy to inform you that we've finished our first round of fights! From here on we'll be pitting contenders we've seen before against one another and getting ever closer to learning who the ultimate World of Warcraft boss may be. Check out our current brackets (though note that they may get shifted around) and come back later today to catch the next round of Two Bosses Enter!

Two bosses will enter... but only one will get to leave! Every week at WoW Insider, we pit two of the most interesting bosses in the World of Warcraft against one another in a fantasy deathmatch -- in the end to emerge with a single boss of bosses, victorious above all others. And the best part? You get to tell us who walks away the winner and who doesn't get to leave our arena at all. Today we're considering a fight between the Black Temple's Teron Gorefiend and Gruul the Dragonkiller. Curious as to what might happen if these two met up? Keep reading and we'll discuss what each of these bosses can do and what might happen if they met up.
