As we delve deeper into the Bastion of Twilight, each boss is more powerful than the last. While Halfus Wymbreaker and the dragon twins aren’t the easiest raid bosses by far, theAscendant Council and Cho’gall are on another level of difficulty. They’re not only more complicated, but simply more punishing as well. You’re going to use your full spectrum of abilities on these fights.

The Ascendant Council encounter emphasizes the importance of good positioning and healing on the move, while Cho’gall will stress both your AoE and single-target healing throughout the fight. Holy paladins have several abilities that are uniquely suited to each encounter, and knowing how to use those spells will be crucial to healing effectively.

As warriors, we’ve been grappling with hit and expertise for years now. Why, you may ask, are they suddenly less viable for tanks than they were during Wrath? Well, believe it or not, hit and expertise have become less compelling for tanks entirely because of two big quality of life changes for tanks: the removal of parry hasting and taunt miss chance.

Detailing the shift

As GC himself points out, tanks working on new content will almost always make the trade-off between threat and survivability in favor of survivability. Tank deaths are often the end of an attempt on a boss, while in most cases, a loss of threat can be compensated for by taunting or threat drop abilities. It’s hard to fault a tank for wanting to make the healer’s job easier, especially now that mana is once again an issue in raid tanking and Vengeance exists to make threat less of an issue as time goes by.

Collect the four heads of Za’brox and Beeble’phod.

We’re about to launch the attack upon the Twilight Gate, but there is one last loose end to tie up: Za’brox and Beeble’phod, the disciples of Cho’gall.

Would you go back in there and kill them?

WoW Quest: Fire the Cannon

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Slay Lord Cannon.

Description

My arch-nemesis, Lord Cannon, has foolishly decided to throw his allegiance to the Twilight’s Hammer.

In the past, we’ve coexisted with a shaky truce, but his change of heart leaves me little choice but to put an end to him. Or, I should say, if you want the information that you seek from the dead dwarf, you’re going to kill Lord Cannon for me.

Seek him at Cannon’s Inferno to the southeast.

WoW Achievement Guide: Noblegarden 2011

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Achievements

by Allison Robert

 

Noblegarden will run this year from Sunday, April 24 (this Sunday) through Sunday, May 1. If you’ve never done Noblegarden before or only done its pre-2009 version, be aware thatNoble Gardener (the holiday’s meta) is part of the year-long What A Long, Strange Trip It’s Been achievement rewarding the 310% speed Violet Proto-Drake.

As far as we know, there are no major updates to the holiday this year, although I’m sure a few minor details have changed, given Deathwing’s effect on the local landscape. As with years past, I’ve updated and clarified our guide to the holiday’s achievements so you can hit the ground running, and I’ll be around as Noblegarden goes live to update the article as necessary.

WoW Quest: Fight Like a Wildhammer

   Posted by: free-wow-guide   in WoW Quest Guide

Collect 10 Kegs of Thundermar Ale from the Thundermar Ruins. Careful – it’s got some kick!

Description

S’not a boast to say that we Thundermars brew the finest ale in the Eastern Kingdoms. It’s 220 proof. Yeah, you heard me!

As folks fled from the south to the town center, they were forced to leave behind their ale.

<Blundy pauses, allowing the gravity of the situation to soak in.>

GET IT BACK! That stuff’ll turn even the stringiest of warriors into a whirlin’ dervish of mouth-foaming destruction. Get them kegs! S’our only hope!

Recover 6 Vermillion Eggs.

Description

Look… I know you have no reason to be fond of me, just as I’m not terribly fond of you, but I need any help I can get.

Our eggs are being stolen by these Twilight invaders. I have no doubt that they want to take them back to Grim Batol to experiment on and pervert. I will NOT let that happen.

If you truly do want to help us, stop them! Recover the eggs. Bring them back to me.

Peer into the Eye of Twilight for Low Shaman Blundy.

Description

I’ll be honest, <name>. That thing gives me the willy-willies. But seein’ as you went to all the trouble of bringin’ it here, I s’pose we ought to put it to use.

You first.

Peer into the eye and ask it to show you inside Cho’gall’s Bastion of Twilight. We’ll find out what that fat two-headed bugger is up to, and use it against him.
