    So it's similar Yogg-Saron and Deathwing fights, as we receive a lot of help from powerful beings. Cool.

    Looks like a cool fight, but lol at Khaz'goroth's ability. Blizz just loves to rub that salt...

    Moreover, I don't see any soaking mechanics, but this fight I feel will be very long... and this is just heroic!

    i fucking called this YEARS ago, i said if we ever faced off against sargeras (back when he wast he big bad of the WoW universe before the retcon of the void lords and all that), that we would be empowered by the pantheon and have their aid as we are in no way capable of fighting a being of such cosmic power and i said it would basically be a yogg-saron style encounter with multiple phases, dunno if i'm happy or sad about the fact i was right in some way regarding this outcome.

    retired march 2013 RIP - returned january 2016, purely because paladins finally get Ashbringer!

    ....Argus is going to kill us?

    ...KILL US!?! INSTANTLY?! Hell, Sargeras dooms us anyway? This war ends in a STALEMATE?!

    ...Not even the Lich King, nor Deathwing were this close.

    How? Theres no soaking mechanic in phase 4, and phase 4 is the only phase with the tree of life. Plus it has limited charges based on raid size.

    He'll never be a boss, he can't be defeated, he's that powerful. Instead, Sargeras is "defeated" when Illidan sacrifices himself, they're imprisoned there and basically he'll never be a threat again.
