Plus, you're going to be going in there with heroic dungeon gear if you're a hardcore raid. They have to make it somewhat easy on you, they need a point where they can say "OK this is the first boss of the instance, we can ramp up from this."
What the fuck is wrong with the incinerate animation? Please don't tell me it's intended to be like that
That being said, there is a little more going on in this fight than meets the eye, but it's not a particularly robust encounter. It's a healer check, but they've said they're nerfing the damage he does.

Both bosses got wrecked handily by experienced guilds on beta. Besides, we really only need to be concerned about the later fights in the tier.
Should've known though, this is MMO-C where people take everything you say literally.
I find it funny myself how people base boss difficulty on the the earliest of ptr tests.
gruul was as far as I made it in TBC so look forward to seeing him quite a bit. it was really mind-blowing how a raid group could clear him one week and then have people shattering each other without giving it a second thought the next. boy did I want that cyclone war kilt... at least my last chance at the token went to a fellow enhancement shaman.
Has the warlock rotation always been that complex?
