    Halfus Wyrmbreaker spawn cycle, Al'akir 25 HC Video, The Daily Blink

    Things aren't getting better and community managers literally disappeared from the surface of the Earth. The good news is that at this rate, I'll probably be desperate enough to post pictures of naked gnomes by the end of the week (don't worry, as far as I know everyone will be back to work today).

    Halfus Wyrmbreaker spawn cycle
    Ever since the release of Cataclysm, people have been posting on the Raids & Dungeons forums each week to ask what the spawns are for Halfus Wyrmbreaker. Our lovely and awesome Simca eventually started Theory: Halfus is not random to see if we can predict the encounters for the upcoming weeks.

    The answer is yes, the add rotation is fully known and verified and unless Blizzard hotfixes something, you should now be able to plan your raids accordingly. (The naming scheme is the one from the original post, that's why the week # aren't in the right order)

    Al'akir Heroic World 2nd Kill by Paragon Video
    Paragon released a video of their world 2nd kill of Al'akir in 25-man Heroic Mode! Hopefully this one will make people slightly less angry than the Nefarian videos.

    Another comic from The Daily Blink!

    Well, ain't that fun? Halfus seems to be predictable.
    Btw, that Daily Blink is awesome. :P

    You really need to separate 25man from 10man ...

    It explains EVERYTHING!

    Really enjoying the Daily Blink!

    Hooo, Daily Blink's creator didn't think too much about Paragon's kill of H.Nefarian either, eh?

    Why? Not even Blizzard separates them anymore. Same lockouts. Granted, the difficulty aint necessarily the same, but who cares?

    being honest. 10man is way harder than 25man (for al'akir, before anyone gets on my junk). paragon themselves even stated it. i think it's quite generous that they're being put in the same grouping.

    What are you smoking? They clearly stated that 25-man is/was a lot harder because of area scaling. They couldn't even keep the whole raid on the platform in p1.

    That can't be right for Halfus, we had Slate, Nether, Storm last week. In fact we haven't seen Whelps yet.

    lol what are you talking about? they stated that 25 HC is harder than 10 HC
    "Didn't we have some fun...though? Remember when the platform was sliding into the fire pit and I said 'Goodbye' and you were like 'No way' and then I was all 'We pretended we were going to murder you'......that was great"

    Why does the Halfus prediction thing go to March in both directions? Did I miss something?

    10m Akir is easier since theres more space thus easier to spread out, less raid damage...

    His list seems to be wrong, somehow. Simca's actual list in the forum has Slate, Nether and Storm last week, correctly.
    Hey, remember when I dropped my keys and you thought the phone was ringing?

    Can you say that with a straight face while knowing that Method "exploited" twin dragons with grounding totem and that pretty much every top guild glitched Atramedes in some way? I'm not supporting Paragon's way of killing Nefarian either, but this way of flagging Paragon as CHeaTaHz while glorifying Method looks ignorant.

    Huh ... I could be wrong because Simca wasn't around to double check, but I'm not sure what the problem is. You're on US Realms, you had Slate/Nether/Storm last week.

    snip snip for picture
    I think the confusion lies in the dates. You have those listed as April when it should've been January 25th to Feburary 1st.

    Unless I'm missing something...which I think I am.

    OH, I see the rotation you've set up. I'm a moron.
