Best boss mechanics?
Return to board index
What does the community think was the best boss mechanics in WoW history (can be from MoP raids)? Do not name a boss, just name one ability/spell/other that made it entertaining to deal with. Also if you have any boss mechanics you think would work well and should be added, what are they? Sorry for bad english :P
Slow-enrages for example
Dark Fissure on the Faceless boss in Throne of Tides
Defile on LK
Slime thingy on Festergut or Rotface or Professor Putricide
Basically things that grow and grow until you can't avoid standing in it, causing a soft enrage.
Oh I forgot to mention, my favourite mechanic would be the light spectrum on the durumuu encounter
All the mechanics on alysrazor were pretty cool. (Tanks doing tons of damage, dps flying around, etc.)
Ill start with that anything RNG related is a 0/10 for me. such as transition phases for Lei Shen.
I really like the gauntlet in Thorim, i'd like to see more of that.
Black holes in Algalon
Frost bombs in syndragosa
Shield in Feng Heroic
Dodging in Will of emp
Buffs in Primordius
Dark Animus adds are very unique, i like that
Raid wide buffs in Twin Emps are really cool
Decapitate is also cool in Lei Shen
i like fights like iron qon, where you have several different phases that each has different abilties.
though some of them are kinda the same yet have a different effect (like his throw spear).
and in the end you have too deal with all abilties at the same time for a short while and prioritize which too remove first quickly (though this is HC only).
same note i like Lei Shen his multi phase fight were certain abilities stay/some change/others get deactivated and certain abilities power up. makes for a crazy fun fight, especially on heroic.
back in the old onyxia days. you had to dodge the breath and controlling the whelps were just god awful. also the cracks in the ground that shat lava out were just annoying. thing about old world mechanics tho is that the boss battles were not hard from a mechanical pov but were hard in terms of raid organization, now u have hte lfr organize the raid for you
so pick ur poison tell me what you're doing: hard raid organization, easy mechanics, or hard mechanics and easy raid organization
