    Garrosh heroic only phase

    Garrosh has a Heroic only phase in the burning Stormwind Harbor.

    Thoughts? Did you see this coming?

    It's pretty standard fare, yeah. Sha of Fear had his own Heroic-only phase, as did Ragnaros, so it's not unusual at all. I kind of figured that might be what the SW harbor files were for.

    That's kinda odd honestly, not too long ago they posted that the SW Burning was from a vision you saw on the Timeless Isle during a quest.

    "Patch 5.4 - Visions of Time: Hidden Threads
    Patch 5.4 adds a quest line on the Timeless Isle that involves working for Kairoz of the Keepers of Time. He is on the Timeless Isle because the Bronze Dragonflight is not as powerful as it once was, only being able to catch furtive glimpses through time. He has created an hourglass that will allow for a window into the timeways, but you must collect 50 x Epoch Stones to make it usable.

    After collecting the stones, you embark on a series of weekly quests to use the Vision of Time in different locations to calibrate the Vision of Time. Kairoz eventually will reveal that there is a traitor among the Bronze Dragonflight.

    As the hourglass grows more powerful, he will send you to the Siege of Orgrimmar to look at one of the most devastating timeways you can find, which is the scene you see below. This uses the damaged Stormwind Harbor area we posted a few weeks ago."

    He doesn't' say that it's the only use for those files, and it's cool that it's relevant outside of the "Hidden Threads" chain. It means that the Heroic raiders get "closer" to that timeway coming to pass, I assume, and get a little extra "heroic" feeling by truly preventing it.

    Maybe at the end of 5.4, there could be some damage done to Stormwind, but we kill Garrosh in time before he caused too much damage. The vision could be the extent of damage that would have been done.

    Will be interesting to see what story there is revolving it.

    Yeah sure, why not.

    I'm pretty sure that, no matter how you see the damaged Stormwind, it's a vision no matter what - heroic encounter or weekly quest.

    From the start I assumed that Shawind Harbor was for Heroic Garrosh.

    Good, they shouldn't be able to that easily.

    Wouldnt it be fun that the reason Stormwind is covered in Sha influence is because of a bomb he had constructed? The exact same thing he killed an officer over in Stonetalon mountains, because it killed innocents. Only now, Garrosh is too far out of reach for redemption.

    Wasnt this confirmed to be a timewalkers vision? What could come to pass if Garrosh isnt stopped? I'm not convinced this is a heroic Garrosh phase.

    On HC Garrosh looks to me to be the hardest fight I'm ever going to see in this game. Seriously, it's going to be insane.
