    Ordos - The Mother of Boss Fights

    The new super boss of WoW; Ordos, is going to be a momumental challenge for the most elite of hardcore raids groups to take down. As the Oondasta of patch 5.4, this world boss not only has an aresnal of downright nasty attacks, and a hard enrage timer of 5 minutes, but also can only be accessed after all players in the raid have achieved attunment through obtaing one of the legendary cloaks through the Wrathion epic-arc on any of their account characters first (in other words, it can only be fought after the adventurers get the cloak at the climax of the MoP storyline). Said boss is encountered on Timeless Isle, the new open-world sandbox zone to be added along with the SoO update.

    Some solid facts about Ordos:

    1. Raids will be few and far between because of the strict entry requirement, as well as the fact that because Timeless Isle is filled with hard elite mobs and is PvP intensive, getting to him is even more difficult. (interestingly though, fellow players are allowed to help kill you during this fight through the use of this).

    2. With his enormous tank, highly regenerative healing, and absolutely devastating abilities, very few challengers will be able to live long enough to bring him down before his soul-crushing wipe takes place.

    3. Boss is strictly designed for max-level, elite raiding guilds with toons equipped with the best gear available (meaning several runs through the SoO raid on 25m Heroic for ultimate gear ups, enchanting rings for maxing out stats, etc). Boss can't be used to gear up lower level toons.

    Other than fighting this outrageously, insanely uber-powerful boss after spending hundreds of hours of work just to get to him and have gear to survive with, what's the point? As it turns out, this boss drops unique, named gear that is almost as powerful as the 25m Heroic SoO gear, (so basically a bunch of collector's items). At first, this seems pointless, but upon closer examination reveals that the item's secondary stats such as crticial strike and master have been switched. So if your willing to sacrifice about 100-200 armor points for a boost in the stats that are most helpful for you, you may want to look into that.

    So all in all, it looks like were going to see more server lag again as huge raid parties battle it out at the summit of Timeless isle, only to die because a bunch of griefers use the Censor of Agony to turn upon their healers and kill them; or because those huge groups of raiders didn't know how to organize their specs correctly.


    So what's you opinion on Ordos? Is he to ridiculously powerful? A purposeless fight? A new way of measuring a guild's skill level?

    nice model you got their ordos
    You're a fine example of how gamer communities have become infested with endlessly whining and bitching, arrogant, opinionated, unreasonable, all the way immature, completely delusional, tendentially psychotic, insulting individuals one really doesn't want to be linked with. And playing with you guys is certainly no fun at all. I don't know where this kind of folks spawns from. Must be a nest somewhere ...
    A fine summarization of the community

    Like every new world boss this xpac, it'll just be done with multiple raid groups and zerged. Sha used to get 60+ people on it, oon still gets up to 80 people on it. Ordos will be no different. Especially seeing as you only need the cloak on one character on your bnet account then any alt can kill it.

    This. Also I doubt groups taking on Ordos will be "few and far between", Almost everyone I know is waiting for 5.4 to upgrade their cloaks to legendary allowing them to take him on (not to mention alts on their accounts).

    To be fair, this expansions legendary isn't difficult to get, it's not exclusive at all, I doubt Ordos groups will be rare at all.

    So it requires elite raiders... but then anyone with the cloak can join in on faction tap? Sounds like that will work out well....

    Besides you saying it has a 5 minute enrage timer and "uber hard" you didn't actually give us a reason why it's hard besides saying its mega uber hard...

    Sounds like a bad porno

    Sounds like it's time to get 1-2 druid friends and simultaneously cyclone all of the tanks in the raid you want to wipe.

    The legendary cloak requirement isn't all that bad, farming the timeless coins will easily be finished on Day 1 of patch 5.4

    The boss will get nerfed after a month of whining.

    A) He has about the same amount of health as Oondasta, more or less. Taking him down before his hard enrage is NOT an issue.

    B) His million damage shared-AoE attack is about 40k damage per hit on a 40 man raid.

    C) His fiery orbs will most likely not cause any major problem due to the sheer amount of ppl around, unless they persist through the entire fight.

    The only problem I forsee is that living-bomb type spell that explodes allies. There is always that one person who fucks up simple mechanics in a big raid.

    Most of your so-called "facts" really arent facts at all. The PvP is only enabled on PvP realms, where you would have to deal with the opposite faction coming in for a kill anyway. Elites are found in bushels on the Isle of Giants, some of which can easily wipe a group (Big T-rexes adding in another AoE interupt).

    A challenging fight, yes. It is, however, a fight that can be done as long as the players are competent- 5 minute enrage timer for his health, using a 40 man group, is very easy unless you have a full group of 450 ilvl alts.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.
