    Favourite MoP boss Mechanic

    Does what it says on the tin, what's your favourite MoP raid boss mechanic so far? It may be an ability, or a string of abilities all tied together by something.

    I'm still loving the dance on Will of the Emperor, although the final phase of Blade Lord with his Tornado dodging mechanic was pretty fun. Hell, I just love anything to do with movement

    Fire away!

    Dodging tornadoes is awesome and will never get old.

    I really like how they are making movement a major part of raiding this expansion. I guess with the new talent system, they can build encounters knowing people have access to mobility increasing abilities.

    I enjoyed feng and will as a tank, extra buttons are always fun in a fight.

    I liked the day/night synergy in Tsulong.

    I really like the Sha of Fear mechanics, such a great fight. I enjoy The Spirit Kings and Elegon from Vaults, as well as Blade Lord and Imperial Vizier from HoF.
    Man, I've got bags under my eyes... BAGS OF MONEY!

    Elegon is one of my favorite fights so far. I find blade lord very boring, not quite as boring as will of the emperor but quite close. The floor on Elegon is one of my favorite mechanics in WoW, right after the adds on heroic nef knocking people off the platforms .

    I have bets every week with my mate when we run MSV LFR.

    How many people to fail on the floor. Closest gets 1k gold.

    Heroic Zor'lok, the double attenuation in the last phase is so much fun.

    I just made a macro, "/yell THIS IS SPARTA!" and hit it every time someone fails in LFR, it's seen a lot of use...

    Honestly, as a tank, the very first boss. All the swapping between tanks keeps the fight fresh every week for me, as it is never the exact same fight twice. For tanks at any rate.

    Elegon probably has the best mechanic, Blade Lord is annoying with any higher than 300ms, getting taken by tornadoes 5 yards away is just horrible.

    elagon sparks affli warlock aand any other boss where i can somehow cheat dps or skip boss mechanic by some of my spells like blade lord tornados demonic circle+gateway at start of last phase and i am at boss within first 10 secs D

    Heroic Zor'lok's Attenuation is the only mechanic that made me smile this tier.

    Elegon is a fantastic fight and it's just strange how it's not the final boss considering Will is so boring with just killing adds the entire time. Personally I would have found Elegon as the last boss to be epic. Plus it has the chance at an amazing looking mount. Why wouldn't you make it the last guy? They put so much work into the fight, only to have the complete opposite for Will.

    Elegon is just boring and a gear check. Not sure why so many like that fight. Spirit Kings would have been the best choice for being end boss fight in MSV. Being tuned a little harder in normal mode and using the worst combination on heroic and it would have been wonderful.

    The orbs on queen are really fun to heal for, with people with the debuffs needing to come out for heals, and planning for orb explosions that are close to each other.

    As a healer, I'd say Tsulong. As someone who likes to see other people die, I'd say Zor'lok's Attenuation.

    This sums it up very well. Attenuation in the last phase is probably my favourite.
