    Not sure but I hear they are suppossed to be push overs that can in fact be affected by types of CC.

    Here's a comment from someone on the PTR:

    "The encounter is very much like the "arena event boss" back in Magister's Terrace.

    You face different enemies, each representing one class: a resto druid, a shadow priest, a holy priest, a hunter, a holy paladin, a rogue, a death-knight, a warrior, a warlock and an elemental shaman.

    They play quite well actually, like using Dispersion when under fire or using Heroism and can't be tanked (as I said, like back in Magister's Terrace).
    They can be crowd controlled but all spells only have their PVP durations and diminishing returns against them.

    After focusing them down one by one they died easily and a chest spawned that did not contain loot.

    Boss is very easy and looks unfinished."


    cc does work, though subject to diminishing returns, mobs are untankable... think priestess delrissa in mgt

    So... it is a raid PVE encounter like Arena PVP... Prepare for QQ-fests once it is under hardmode.

    I heard resil did not work in pve anymore, since some tanks tried it, and were crit once they took off some def rating gear and subbed in resil rating gear.

    Quitting the fail that WoW has become when Aion comes out. No point to play hardcore when any idiot can have the same gear as you.

    No coz when dimishing totaly runs out you will still need someone with high stam and avodiance to keep those before they kill raid. Atleast thats my opinion dunno for how much do they hitt for etc etc.

    Yeah. I was watching attempts on hard modes and non-tanks are RIPPED TO SHREDS. The normal mode looks pretty peezy, but the hard mode seems serious. Probably want to learn it with tanks on normal mode anyways to get in the habit of having the tanks hold them and everyone else kite when targeted, so that you won't blow all your first week attempts on faction champs.

    I thought the point was that they aren't tankable (as in 'arena-style' / MT)

    They aren't tankable, all the mobs have no aggro table.

    This fight is a pushover in normal, enjoy your free loots.

    Haha. Yeah. I thought about using that, but figured I would be a bit more original... Or, to tell the truth, I was too lazy to go to lmgtfy.com for someone else. :P

    Where did you watch attempts on Hard Modes because, to the best of my knowledge they never allowed testing on Hard Modes and none of the servers have opened up the Heroic Difficulty yet?
