What's that? We've already killed another boss?

Elerethe is definitely not an easy fight. Her heroic version alone comes with a ton of complex mechanics and precise movement requirements, putting her amongst the toughest encounters in Heroic Nightmare.

The mechanic requires some immense burst and precise positioning, as a single mistake from any amount of players can cause the fight to slowly spiral out of control.

Obviously, we got this kill (and our Heroic clear as well) amongst a ton of changes for the raid t...

If you haven't been living under a rock, boat, or pile of demon corpses, then you'll know that Legion is live! We've already been hitting the expansion hard leveling, racking up some of the first level 110's on our server (congrats to Sunnymuffin for server first 110 and winner of the best-dude award)!

This short post is just a reminder of our raid expectations come the release of Emerald Nightmare on September 20th. They're stickied up on the Raid Discussion board, but I'll go ahead and post them again here for duplicity:
