Now that I think about it, didn't Blood Legion come within seconds of the enrage on 'normal' Heroic? I know when we killed it on heroic we essentially killed it AT the enrage after all the optimizations we could make (we had US#5 H25 kill). Now take into account the likely need for an additional healer and the addition of Defiled Ground and you have what certainly looks like an impossible encounter currently.
because with the current gear and how the encounter is tuned it's impossible to kill in heroic elite mode. plus it doesn't award any extra points on wowprogress, so why bother. there will be enough time to farm the gear once the encounter is killable
We would have killed it with Heroic Elite if it just were possible, atm it's not. Other bosses in that boss fight gives you some kind of buff. Asani gives you 25% haste, The healing dude ( don't remember his name atm) giving you huge healing buff when you sit on the the pool. And Kaolan gives you absolutely nothing. It just stacks the damage buff too much. It is not possible to out heal that damage atm. Sejta said we gonna try couple of trys next reset, but i really doubt that we can bring them down.
Because most everyone who has already killed Sha of Fear spent ~70 hours raiding that week, not to mention going super hardcore on the other two instances. Needless to say, it was a mentally brutal tier especially considering Imperial Vizier and the length of Sha of Fear attempts. I doubt the boss is impossible at the moment but it really doesn't seem worth the time investment.
Why doesn't wowprogress track Elite Protectors? They did fine tracking Ulduar hard modes.
