    WTF? This Penguin...

    So there is a penguin that is the first comepeditor of rank 2 in Brawler's Guild on the PTR, as melee and DK, it's incredibly hard to beat this compeditor since once he's close to you, he'll instant kill you, he runs fast, you can't slow him, all you can do is direct attacks to knock him back and all I can do is Howling Blast and Icy Touch to hit him, as I can't go near him and hit him. Any suggestions?

    Heh, a penguin. Anyway, you might want to consider getting the Chilblains talent to help you with kiting.
    Have you had the dream again? A black goat with seven eyes that watches from the outside.

    Thank you Shyama for the awesome signature!

    He runs VERY fast so he's going to be incredibly difficult to kite, but he does knockback when he's hit by any direct damage. Easy for casters I'd imagine if they're not using DOTS, I'm not entirey sure how easily melee will be able to hit him before he's close enough to insta kill you.

    Can't wait to try this fight on my Rogue :/

    PTR is PTR for a reason, to test these things and see whether or not they're overtuned. This seems to be the case if it's capable of one-shotting then I fear melee won't be able to do it and they might just have to tune it down.

    The penguin does not care about your chilling attacks.

    Sounds like fun!

    edit: I seriously hope this stuff won't get nerfed before I actually get the chance to do it!

    So he's like the Tonberry King but on crack.
    A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.

    DKs, especially Frost DKs aren't strictly melee. You have an arsenal of ranged attacks, slower than a combination of spells and melee hits, but you do have some range attacks (god do I know as a Holy paladin).

    I hope they'll mix up the fights that makes a player think outside the box to down a boss like that. None of this race in and do it by the numbers deal. Making you judge what's hitting you and how to counter it while you bandage for the nth time. Would be better if the debuffs and more were random, too. So you never know how it'll be the next time.

    A thinking game.
    From the #1 Cata review on Amazon.com: "Blizzard's greatest misstep was blaming players instead of admitting their mistakes. They've convinced half of the population that the other half are unskilled whiners, causing a permanent rift in the community."
    Blizzard's blame game in action: Deleting 6,100+ of Kevyne's posts and threads from the WoW forums.

    I foresee it will eventually turn into a training dummy like the rest of the mobs in the game, since difficulty isn't part of the equation anymore.

    I believe DBM and the like took care of turning that into one of those "button sequence" games in which you just repeat the sequence in order.
    About as random as playing the same guitar hero song over and over.

    Go fight a Pandaren elite as if it were a training dummy and come back to report your success.

    Doesn't even have to be an elite. The normal rares can hit for over a million damage if you're not paying attention or have slow reflexes.

    Unless they changed it, the OHKO attack is not instant and is very easy for melee.

    this rant/QQ/whine or whatever you want to call it (i'm not saying anything) proves it.

    Did they remove death coil from frost or change it that dramatically? seems like a nice gap filler. Also: raise dead and army, for as long as it helps.

    By the way...isn't it stunnable or anything?
