This last wing is home only to Imperator Mar'gok, and, like all other LFR wings, you'll need an ilvl of 615 to queue up. Need a helping hand taking Mar'gok out? There are some great guid...

Blizzard released a preview of tier 17 armor sets tonight in advance of the grand opening of Highmaul. The paladin set is displayed above and you can see the rest of them over on Battle.net.
