Just wondering how hard the new 5 man is.
Has anyone tanked this on normal?
And heroic?
I want to know how hard it's gonna be for me to get the trinket I've been drooling over for days. :P

This is what I heard (didn't check it out myself):

- You need to complete it on normal (finish a quest) to unlock heroic mode.
- You need solid crowd control as the groups are big.
- 80% of the mobs in there are casters.

- The bosses are relatively easy, except for Kael'thas who is slightly more difficult due to damage output and the fact that's is a mobility fight.

Nothing too shocking so far, I think once you have the place under control it's just smooth sailing (read: farm mode).

Just wondering, what kind of gear is needed to complete it on heroic? Is it just like a normal heroic and it can be done by people in blues, or is it a lot harder than usual heroics and requires quite some good gear?
Also, any fearing mobs? I hate fearing mobs :/

I've done it twice now on normal, haven't had time for the heroic yet.

There are a lot of casters there, so you might want some CC for the heroic at least.
It is definately the hardest 5man I've tried, can imagine it being nerfed a bit actually before going live.
You just gotta complete it once on normal to unlock heroic.
The 3rd boss in there is the only mob that fears, but it's untankable anyway. The boss (priest) has 4 random adds, can be any class. I don't think any of them have aggrotables.
Oh, and bring a priest or druid healer, Kael does a lot of AoE damage if the group isnt careful.

There are loads of casters, and mostly in big groups I was able to aoe tank them in the gear Im wearing now( some pre kara blues, kara epics, bit of badge gear), but on heroic I say CC will be nescessary, unless you really outgear it. The trash Imo is a lot harder than the bosses them selves. (ye my spelling is bad atm, too tired to think straight).

Edit, ye it seems like the hardest 5 man Ive witnessed in game. also on the priest boss I tanked 4 of the adds so I think they have an aggro table.

not able to get onto the test realm so I ask a few questions;

Line of sight pullable areas?

bets on a 16.5k pally aoe-ing this stuff?

Really need the CC (ie priestess boss) or are people being over dramatic?

You can LoS pull in most places, but the mages hit fairly hard, and there are a few packs you have to do in plain view.

I did this with 17k buffed on normal, maybe I got a bad impression as my healer did seem slow at healing me, no cc used.

we used no CC what's so ever on the priestess boss, due to not having any, I tanked 4 of the adds while a ret paladin picked her up.

The third boss was terrible.
I got charged by the warrior, before I was near enough to throw my shield.
One second later all my buffs were dispelled by the priest, the rogue used a shadowstep? + stun combo on me. Just after this stun expired i got sheeped by the mage -.-
For the rest of the figth I had no mana, no buffs and no aggro (they are all immune to taunt by the way).

I'll also admit the instance is the hardest 5man I've personally have done myself, the first 2 bosses were very big letdowns they were both weak and easy to kill... i mean the trash was harder then them thats sort of sad.

i didn't get to continue any farther than that though because the group disbanded.

Normal: Easy. Bosses are nothing. Walked through it.

Heroic: Pretty easy. Second to last boss is really the only difficult part, CC is useful here as the ads don't really follow aggro tables. Kael has a few extra tricks up his sleeve for heroic as well.

Also, my shield broke. Fel Barrier was in my bags, so I put that on. Now, the human female is bugged. Our weapons and shield are abnormally large on PTR. But this? LOLKITE:

Invis:

does the PTR not allow addons, or do you roll without major UI mods?

i am yet to find someone who rolls with all of the functionality mods like me, (Omen, DBM, etc) yet dispenses with all of the UI appearance mods and uses the default.
better to tank in hell than DPS in heaven
