Got adds? This week's Two Bosses Enter has minions a-plenty. Welcome to the ring Ichoron of Violet Hold and Ionar of the Halls of Lightning – and all their summoned minions.
The usual rules apply: assume that the opponents share similar levels, health pools and damage output. Take note that these bosses will face off neutral territory; there'll be no magic prison wall switches to throw in this battle. Both bosses will be allowed to summon their minions in their usual manner. Focus your debate on the three S's: Style, Story and Scale. Don't get caught up in game mechanics and what players might do in each encounter. Consider the flavor each villainous gladiator brings to bear, then cast your vote for who you think would come out on top.
Water can hold any form, take any shape... overcome any obstacle.
Ichoron is a water revenant imprisoned in the Violet Hold in Dalaran. She begins the fight with a damage-reducing shield with 35 charges. Once those charges have been removed, she forms a Protective Bubble and spawns smaller elementals around the area that move slowly toward her. Any elemental that reaches her without being killed will heal a portion of her health. For their own part, the elementals erupt for damage and knockback when killed.

Ionar is a lightning revenant and the third boss encountered in the Halls of Lightning. He periodically disperses into smaller Sparks of Ionar during battle, which crawl inexorably toward opponents and increase the range of his lightning effect.

The usual rules apply: assume that the opponents share similar levels, health pools and damage output, and that they are fighting in neutral territory (no Violet Hold wall switches, got it?). Both bosses get the advantage of their minions. Vote for the spirit of the battle as set forth above.
Last week's friendly LOLcat reminder not to indulge in weaksauce yowls of "My group's cats faceroll these bosses while we're AFK BIO" seemed to keep the comments in spirit and in focus ... Meow. Can you come up with a convincing scenario in the comments that will sway fellow readers to vote for your boss of choice?
