So.....Ra-Den....Is obviously the Thunder "god"...If they follow the obvious Mortal Kombat reference here. Which would also make sense since you would have to beat the King to fight the God.
So judging from some of the mechanics there are a few clear things that could be "elite" mode, but hopefully blizzard makes it clear what is required.

Soothing Mist:"Healing them for a minor amount every 0.5 sec, until you take any other action."
Jade Serpent Statue: "The statue will also begin casting Soothing Mist on your target. healing for 50% as much as yours. "
[What's half of minor?]
"Statue casts Soothing Mist at a nearby ally for toddler healing."
Maybe it is some kind of Lei Shen's true form a la last phase of Ragnaros, but as a separate encounter now. This also somehow should be tied to promised reveal of "dark origins" of mogu. It is pretty obvious that mogu are not natural living creatures with bronze unmoving hair and all. I'm pretty sure they're entirely created race in some kind of machine like WoTE.
Oh lol, msv was only a setback for garajal.
I wasn't expecting him to actually come back after he said he would when we kill him the first time.
Can Dinomancers be the new class in the next expansion?
To keep Ra-Den from being bugged to shit as some said i hope Blizzard ask some top guilds for some secret testing before he/she/it is released and being HORRIBLY bugged
9 Legendaries and counting. CC ring, Ghoul Ring, AMS cloak, Aggramars Stride, Frost belt, HB Helm, Sindy pants, Kil'jaeden's Burning Wish, Blood bracers.
A hydra called Megaera - hilarious! Hercules, anyone?
This raid is looking epic so far, hopefully Blizzard won't let us down.
"We don't care what people say, we know the truth. Enough is enough with this horse s***. I am not a freak, I was born with my free gun. Don't tell me I'm less than my freedom."
Shell Block - The turtle hides in his shell at low health, gaining immunity to all damage. While in this state, the turtle can be kicked across the room by players, applying Shell Concussion to any creatures it hits along the way.
F yea mario style ;D
I'm pumped, the encounters are really inspired. Megaera looks insane (my vote for the cockblock of the raid, though council looks like it could be a pretty big gear-check), Durumu and Primordus look ridiculously fun. Lei-Shen looks like a worthy end-tier boss.
Overall, ToT sounds as good as they said it'd be. I can't wait.
I guess the testing on ra-den will be done on live, the first guilds who will reach him are those who would have to test it on the ptr anyway.
It wouldn't be the first time that Blizzard hotfixes encounters while the top guilds are still whiping on it.
