I actually like the fight.
I think you're exaggerating a little bit. Although it is quite a cool fight and the art is very nice in the room I dont think its the most epic looking fight in WoW ever, Kiljaedens room was pretty amazing looking and I am not sure fighting on top of the frozen throne can ever be totally matched in how cool that was.
As far as the fight itself goes -- its actually very well done, and well designed for a normal end boss. I'm not sure if the damage was so low because of the scaling to ilvl 517 but all the big damage spikes at least up until 30% which is where we got was controllable in some way. I say up the damage on everything ESPECIALLY tank damage, tanks could literally keep themselves with little effort (any class)
Great boss though!
Gear was indeed scaled to 517 for this fight, not 502. Probably because it's assumed that by the time you get to him you'll have a few upgrades.
http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/z...?s=5300&e=5750 -- that's the log from when my group killed him from a healing standpoint. Damage wasn't too bad. The closest fight I could find that matched the HPS was my H Will kill this week (176k raid hps) whereas this was 175k. Looking at the graph though, you can see it just comes in spikes due to the spread/collapse nature of the fight. For that reason alone, the damage should probably be increased a bit so that mistakes are more deadly (i.e. if you mess up the stacking for Overcharge, the stun really isn't that big a deal) and there's something to actually heal in-between the times the raid is stacked.
After pushing this fight into p3 and wiping it for more practice, I can also say that this fight is very cool. Looking forward to t15.
At first I thought Lei-Shen's room was the 13th bosses room, but obviously not after watching the streams. So, I wonder how we'll get into Raden's room? For Algalon you opened to the door with the sigils, and for Sinestra, Cho'gall broke part of the floor...
looks like it will be a lag-fest for people with sub-par pc's. other than that, amazing looking fight
