Currently trying to experiences all classes at 100. Count so far: 6.
Ahead of the Curve: Imperator's Fall 1/29/15 with a friendly casual guild.
Blood Legion 13/14 H, We now have a race !!
Quick question is the order of the paragons the same for US and EU? If not that might explain why the long delay with blood legion.
Heroic Garrosh, just like Heroic Lei Shen will be VERY tight on the DPS. I foresee not getting a kill this week because not enough gear. I don't think the Berserk timer itself is the issue, just that spending too much time in any of the phases can be lethal, especially if you go over 50 Energy before reaching last phase(Empowered MC is REALLY annoying to deal with on normal, let alone HC).
I just hope Blizz has tuned it like Ragnaros/Lich King was; Massive DPS/Gear check.
What happens with gear checks is they arbitrarily stretch out the time it takes to kill the boss and then it dies the next reset someone gets to him.
Without gear checks everything would be downed the first week.
And top guilds had to use BL AND 5 Healers to reach that! When we arrived to Lei Shen heroic, we reached the 65%/4th Thunderstruck without BL and we even had 1 more healer than top guilds.
The Berserks should be like Lich King 25HC(albeit, not with such a high DPS requirement that you needed weekly/monthly nerfs). Lei Shen Heroic "berserk" was just that healers couldn't keep up with Winds damage anymore. I don't even know if Sha of Fear had a berserk timer on Heroic, since you were 99.9% more likely to wipe from being overwhelmed by Adds.

Atramedes post-post-post-post-post-post hotfix, anyone :P? The one where you'd stand in the doorway and dps him, then run when he flew up and just run forever, then come back and dps him for a little while untill he flew up again and repeat untill dead. If there had been no enrage timer or gong-soft enrage mechanic, this would have made the boss incredibly easy (not that it wasn't already).
