Forge of Souls Impressions
So it took me a good few days to find some time to test the new 5-man introduced in the latest PTR build. Yep, I am talking about the Forge of Souls, the first wing of the Frozen Halls, which is the composite name of all 3 5-mans in the Icecrown Citadel. Story-wise it is the first section of the Frozen Halls you are going to enter, so I am going to spend a little time talking about the story behind those three dungeons.
Yep, after the break :D
Oh, and let me tell you something. Instance full of creepy flying skulls that seem to be laughing at you while floating around playfully is one of the creepiest things I have ever seen in the game.

Pit of Saron Impressions
So after much struggle and not a single WoW reinstall, I finally managed to get my PTR Client up and working. Eager to test the Pit of Saron, I transferred my
(who is actually a tank, so his Ret gear isn't that great), I went to the place, got a group together in a few mere instants... and could not enter. Apparently having done so many phasing quests in Icecrown, I was not able to see the instance portals. Which I fixed by simply copying a pre-made character, paladin tank as well, and, oh wonders - I was able to enter the instance soon after my first failure!
So this blog is going to be about my first impressions of the place. A word of caution before we start - I was not able to fight the final boss, Scourgelord Tyrannus. He was just not there. Kind people in the LFG channel politely informed me that he should be there, so I guess I had just encountered a bug. I will try again later and update the blog with impressions of the fight against him as well.

Strategist: Trial of the Grand Crusader
So this is the last one of the Trial of the Crusader Strategists. Really. This time.
I am going to use this introductory paragraph to explain why the Grand Crusader is different - in general - and then dive into the specific details of each fight.
First, you start Trial of the Grand Crusader with 50 "unsuccessful attempts". Every time you wipe - or every time a boss resets, you lose 1 attempt. When you lose all 50, all bosses despawn and you can't do anything until the next reset. There are two reward systems, to promote better performance. The items that drop off bosses of higher level than the normal version of the raid - they are essentially the same items, with buffed stats. And then there is the Tribute Chest. As I understand it, the Tribute Chest will always contain 2 Trophies/Regalias (for 10/25 respectively) and a number of items. If you reach it with 25-44 attempts left, you get an extra Trophy/Regalia and an extra item. For 45-49 attempts left, you gain another one. And for a perfect run (50 attempts left), you get one unique mount and a very high level cloak.
Now that you are all familiar with the basic idea behind the Heroic raid mode, let's

Strategist: Onyxia 3.2.2
Why, hello there! You take your eyes away from the game for a little while and there it is - 5 years pass by. As
would say: "
5 years, you say? Well, you're certainly the bearer of wonderful news, aren't you? Next you're going to tell me that Onyxia is still alive and attacking the city.
" Well, what do you know - old Elling has a big surprise brewing up for him.
is in fact alive (kind of, but we don't mind) and back, ready to wreck raids once more!
And as you very well know, every time a new raid boss pops up, a new Strategist is spawned as well. Buckle up, break the piggy-bank with money for extra repair bills, stock up with flasks, and get ready for even MOAR DOTZ!

New Details on Cataclysm Dungeon
I realize I'm a
bit late on this, but I suppose it's better late than never, right?

website. The dungeon will be known as
The Abyssal Maw
and is expected to have an ocean-like setting. The updated page has been linked below.
You can also find the announcement in its full entirety after the break.

Strategist: Faction Champions
I think I've avoided this one long enough. The fight is chaotic and random, and different group compositions (for both the raid and the bosses) require different prioritizing. In other words - waiting more won't make the "strategy" any easier to write.
This being said, the term "strategy" is used very loosely. I won't give you a strategy - instead I will offer a short description of the strong and weak sides of each possible opponent, some way you can negate his or her weaknesses, and hopefully a tip as to how dangerous the specific miniboss is.
Read and find out what the
have in store!

Raider Apprentice - Addons
You ever found desktop so full of icons that you almost need to use a search engine to find the folder you need? Or your desk/working place literally hidden by mountains of papers, hole-punchers, sticky notes, staplers, folders, binders, pens and other office tools? Well, things like that can happen in WoW too, and I am an unfortunate victim of Addon addiction.

Worgen - E.D. With Attitude
They are fearless. They are many. They are entire dimensions from home.
I'm talking about worgen, a race of wolf-men creatures which somewhat contrast the nature-loving furbolg (read about those furries
). Worgen are extra-dimensional creatures, as best our undead friends can tell, which exist for the sole purpose of destroying anything and everything they encounter. They were thought to be tame, or at least tame enough to be controlled for the purposes of good, but the worgen secretly mutinied against their new found masters.
Despite differences between furbolg, worgen, and myself there's one thing we all share in common—
we're really hungry!
