Our last Two Bosses Enter deathmatch was simply a no-contest: C'Thun defeated Mother Shahraz with little difficulty, coming away the winner with a healthy 86% of the vote. This should come as no surprise to anyone who's had a chance to try the encounter for themselves, as C'Thun is a tricky custome...

I admit it, I am never going to raid Naxxramas. C'Thun? Broodlord? These are fights I doubt I will ever see. That's not to say that I don't play a lot, I do. I have 10 characters, ranging from 70 to 1, and I admit an addiction to character creation. But I am not a raider. My mage has average...

Forlex on Draka realm sends in this shot of a instant before a first encounter with C'thun, the final boss of Ahn'Qiraj. A great first glimpse of a nasty boss (sure, you'd think a giant eyeball would be immensely vulnerable, but no!), a single calm moment before a raid's worth of players rushes in...

My guild has been trying the C'Thun encounter for nearly 4 weeks. We can clear all the other AQ40 bosses with little effort, but C'Thun still eludes us. For me personally, this is not a big deal. Our guild is what I would call hardcore-lite, as we only raid four nights a week and have loose attendan...

Last Sunday my guild wiped a couple times while clearing out what remained of AQ40, then went ahead and wiped on C'Thun more times than I care to admit. 2 repair bots were used, plus all my armor was broken at the end of the raid. Repair cost? About 35 gold. I used 20 major mana pots, a stack of hea...

Interestingly enough, the day of the first world C'thun kill is exactly a year to the day of the first Ragnaros kill.  This must make one wonder, due to the timing of revisions to the C'thun encounter - has this all, in fact, been orchestrated by Blizzard?[Thanks, spencer]

Only hours after Blizzard made additional changes to the C'thun encounter, European guild Nihilum (Magtheridon realm) seems to have managed to kill C'thun.   Forum post with details here, and screenshots and loot are listed on their website.  Congrats, members of Nihilum for this impr...

Another C'thun hotfix (which should be live world-wide) has fixed a bug that was causing Giant Eye Tentacles to spawn during C'thun's weakened state in stage 2.  (If there are already tentacles spawned, they will not despawn - but you shouldn't see any new ones.)  Also, the time between te...

Two of the most difficult bosses in Ahn'Qiraj - C'thun and Ouro, neither of whom have yet been defeated - have both been hotfixed to make the encounters (presumably!) less difficult.  With major PVE raiding guilds on the verge of giving up on the buggy C'thun encounter (see Death and Taxes and...

No, C'Thun has not been killed yet, but there are already rumors floating around as to what he might drop. Sure, there's no proof of any of this, but news of this nature seems to inevitably leak early - from Nefarian's loot tables to every set of patch notes. Casters will immediately be drawn to a...

While most of us have heard of C'Thun at this point (if you haven't, he's the last boss in Ahn'Qiraj's 40-player raid instance), precious few have actually seen him.  And so far, no one has defeated him - meaning the race is on, as guilds across the world strive to be the first one to take him...

I usually don't play with sound on - most of the in-game music I've heard time and time again, and usually I'll have a DVD or MP3s playing in the background instead.   But my first runs through Ahn'Qiraj, I turned the sound on to see what it was like - and it did not disappoint.  Most...
