2013/05/17 at 11:08 AM
In addition to the new Brawler's Guild bosses coming with Ranks 9 and 10 in Patch 5.3, there are twelve special bosses which each require players doing something creative to unlock.
First, players must find a special item, such as
The Bear and the Lady Fair

A Tale of Romance and Chivalry
Once at the Brawler's Guild, you will then fight the boss associated with the item, in quests like
The Bear and the Lady Fair

Users participating in Battlefield: Barrens can purchase

And why did the mists suddenly disappear? I must have answers! In my travels, I met an old scholar, an expert on the last emperor. Please, seek out Seer Hao Pham Roo. Last we spoke, he was planning to retrace the emperor's steps by scaling Mount Neverest... but he was far too old to attempt such a climb.
