One Boss Leaves: Eck pwns the ick


Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW Insider's series of fantasy death matches. This season's duelists hail from the five-man instances of Wrath of the Lich King.

It was kangaroo vs. 'shroom as Eck the Ferocious took on Amanitar in this week's Two Bosses Enter, One Boss Leaves deathmatch. The little Gorloc bounded to a fairly tight victory.

Reade Rhoz offered up a dissenting opinion on how this matchup would go down: "My vote goes to Amanitar, because his tactics seemingly counter all of Eck's strengths. Eck deals poison damage, and as a giant mushroom, Amanitar is likely to be highly resilient to poison. Eck jumps around, Amanitar entangles. Meanwhile, while Eck is rooted to the group, Amanitar's fungal friends are spouting up all over the place, damaging Eck. Since neither of these bosses are notable for their intelligence, by the time Eck realizes that the spores are ripping his body apart from the inside out, it'll likely be too late. Coupled with a powerful Poison Bolt Volley from Amanitar, and it looks like the Gorloc doesn't have much of a chance."

Vote later today in the next matchup of this season's Two Bosses Enter ... One Boss Leaves.
