Blizzplanet Preview: PTR 5.4 – Siege of Orgrimmar – Kor’Kron Dark Shamans

WoWScrnShot_062413_195947

The Dark Shamans encounter in the Siege of Orgrimmar 10-players Normal Raid testing took place yesterday. These two bosses and their mounts can be found inside the Grommash Hold. However, fighting inside the Grommash Hold is not recommended at all.

The two wolves: Darkfang and Bloodclaw die pretty fast. Focus fire on them while the tanks build aggro on the bosses. That encounter felt really hard with the Wavebinder Kardris summoning tornadoes and oozes. Healers have to really spam heals and be on their toes ready to run out of the way of the tornadoes if they wish to survive.

The storm places a dot that last a bit over 20 seconds in which time the healers need to constantly spam heals on the raid. Three healers might be needed for this encounter.

For my first three attempts, the raid wiped as soon as the tornadoes covered the entire area. I kept wondering if some kiting might be needed to reduce the amount of tornadoes slaughtering raid players. The area around the Grommash Hold has no obstacles preventing players from kiting.

Something fans might have overlooked is that these two Siege of Orgrimmar bosses were actually Shaman trainers. Haromm was located at Stonard in Swamp of Sorrows. Kardris Dreamseeker was found in Orgrimmar at the Valley of Wisdom next to the campfire.

Disclaimer: My main is a Holy Paladin. In PTR I use a shadow priest for the mind vision spell (used in some videos for close ups). I don’t know Shadow Priest rotations and whatnot. Please, focus on the bosses and their abilities before commenting about how horrible the shadow priest is. Thank you.
