    Thank you for the clarifications! It sounds like designing a world boss wouldn't be too hard:
    1) It shouldn't drop loot - you kill it just for the accomplishment
    2) Anyone who assists gets credit -...

    Does the whale-shark count? I remember downing him fairly early on, but we had a 40 man raid and fought near a graveyard so people could keep jumping back in. There was also some giant demon that...

    A few tips for running this on ten man with two tanks:

    1) The Shannox tank can kite him when Riplimb is returning the spear to get extra time to drop the stacks.
    2) I usually tank Riplimb, but...

    My bad, I had thought that Taunts (Hand of Reckoning) and Fixates (Righteous Defense) had different mechanics. But then again, I haven't read up on them since the Gormok fight :)

    I find decision making to be more interesting and hence, more fun, than simply using something on cooldown. Having said that, this change to WoG will have little effect on my priorities. I'll still...

    It's not a bug - they simply chose not put resources into upgrading a zone that is all but dead to high level characters. There was a blue post on it a few weeks ago.
