Well to be fair, so far we've had two heroic only bosses: Algalon and Sinestra. Both were really buggy when the first guilds came across them.
Ra Den the thunder beaver, obv.
Your comments are duly noted and ignored.
I punch a hobo every time someone says 'it's not a rotation it's a priority list lol'.
I'm really looking forward to this "Ra-Den". And also, i want to see Lei Shen Heroic. This patch is one of the best patches we had in years. Also Dinomancers.... how the fuck can someone hate this patch???
Ponies are for little girls, deal with it.
all the fight looks VERY VERY GOOD
13 bosses mean loot itemizations any news about raid loot table?? Mr Chaud??
i wonder if Ra-den drops any special trinket like shard of woe XD

Ra-den sounds like a very Kombat intensive fight. Mortal Kombat I say!
I wasnt too pumped for this raid until I saw this with the information about the bosses. Now I think I might have to re-sub just to do it. Seems pretty damn epic.
if ra-den is in fact the keeper of storms we might actually see some naga in the fight.
i think they shouldnt release the dungeon finder for ra-den, would seem a little more fun
I wonder if Lei Shen will have an elite mode based on which conduits you choose to disable.
I am going with Plot Twist!!! Ra-Den is a Panderan and is the secret mastermind behind the Mogu.
Well, this looks like a Troll raid with some Mogu at the end. About time! Cataclysm had me worried with only having 5-mans.
As for Ra-Den, Raijin, also called Raiden, is a thunder god in Japanese mythology. We already knew that this guy was thunder-affiliated, but still, it tells you where his name came from - as well as every other character called "Raiden".
I like the idea of heroic-only endbosses, even if I never get to see them - hell, I've never seen Sinestra, or Ragnaros' heroic-only phase, but I still like how they were implemented. They're a great way to ensure that just getting to the encounter is a great feeling, as well as making sure that killing them at all is a great achievement. My last experience with that boss model was back when Ulduar was current, and getting to Algalon was awesome - even if I'm not 100% that the time limit was necessary.

If you're at all wondering, I think the hydra is a Troll thing because of Gahz'ranka and all that.

Either way. I'm looking forward to finding out who this Ra-den guy is and checking up on WoWprogress to see which guild is able to beat him first.
[Edit] Which reminds me. I thought Lei Shen was called The Thunder King because whenever he hurled his axe, it made a sound like crashing Thunder. But according to the dungeon journal, he is able to wield the power of electricity.
I'm sure it'll make for some interesting mechanics in the fight, but, come on! The name wasn't literal, guys!
