Siege of Orgrimmar's third wing is open for business!
There have been a lot of disparaging reports from players regarding the LFR difficulty being too high for the previous wing, but Flex is certainly doing well. My guild cleared Galakras, Iron Juggernaut and the Kor’kron Dark Shaman in one night after an initial struggle on Galakras, but what a fun event it was!
Nostalgia levels were high as the encounter reminded us greatly of the introductory battle to Mount Hyjal from The Burning Crusade. Iron Juggernaut is a rather fun encounter too, with a fantastic boss model that’s also a mount obtainable from Heroic Garrosh Hellscream.
As for the Kor’kron Dark Shaman…ugh. What a mess of void zones, poison streams, killer slimes and elementals. As a tank, kiting the bosses around the enclosure for the duration of the encounter was less than pleasant. However, as an Alliance player, killing the orcs in the various buildings within Orgrimmar was rather satisfying.
What’s your favorite boss fight so far this tier, and what do you think of the LFR difficulty debate?
I’ve spoken to many players who’ve found themselves stuck in a frustrating LFR fiasco that’s lasted anywhere from two to five hours! New fights need to be learned but not everyone has the patience or the time. Personally, I stay out of LFR when a raid is new. How about you?
