    Well done to these guys. Impressive indeed. My Horde casual guild still struggles with H-Aggrammar lol.

    I can't wait to try this.....on the expansion after BFA.

    Those guys at the olympics, so easy! It's just practice! You could do it too...

    Yes, let's not forget them. Hard to forget because it was impressive, just as this is impressive. So I'm sure you won't forget this, either.

    Looking forward to seeing your videos, being this is so easy. And BTW, it's not. You have to invent brand new strategies to deal with the mechanics that were designed for 10+ people. It takes creativity and a ton of patience.

    Excellent execution on both those kills. Yeah, I'm sure on paper with high gear it is "easy" as some of these fools keep saying. But the actual execution is wonderful to see. Grats keep it up.

    What was the tank strat for Aggramar Foe Breakers? I see it is the DK I think I have a general idea, outside great gear, but I'm still curious how to survive so "easily" lol.

    Over geared or not, dealing with those mechanics with only 5 people is very impressive. Ignore the haters and jealous people, what you guys did is very impressive, well done.

    I used VB, rune tap (with talent ring), Diima's trinket and Ironbark from druid for the second slice each time, as well as IBF when it was up. Used talent ring and belt as legendaries, though belt is pretty useless since you won't really get to use the extra VBs, would definitely have used shoulders if I had them. It was very important that my stacks dropped before taking the technique as taking a slash with 16 stacks is pretty scary. Was around 965 ilvl so not amazing gear but more than enough. Honestly Argus was much harder to tank, as the healer wasn't always around to taunt and let me drop stacks since she also had to deal with soulbombs.

    Well, you know what they say. "Those who can't do, teach." And can't forget its addendum. "Those who can't do or teach, critique."

    You mean with Naxx gear and TBC talents?

    Considering Onyxia in Vanilla didn't even have an enrage, was not tuned for 40 people, and that these guys didn't need the talents of the next expansion to defeat these two (Aggramar and Argus), this is much more impressive

    Yeah, I figured Argus was a real pain as well. I was just wondering how much it takes to not die on a second FB and as I assumed it is a decent amount.

    Great stuff to watch. Congrats

    The “not impressive” comments are grating and annoying because they’re snot-nosed brats, that’s how they are.

    It isnt hard though... aggramar's difficulty comes from sustained heals something that isn't a issue in such a small group and actively becomes easier.

    Argus on heroic is a dps check. It just seems weird for this to be on the front page is isn't even as difficult as a normal mythic kill if your above 970.

    We just know how the game works... saying this is impressive when it doesn't hold a candle to 10 people carrying another 10 buyers seems just weird..

    And, 5-manning current expansion content.

    Bring back Lich King herioc boss mechanics. 3d.

    Then again, we was 5 manning 3d back at the end of ICC..... so, I get it.

    How is five manning something that's tuned for 10 people suppose to be impressive?
    I do content tuned for 30 people with a 10 man group all the time.
