Two Bosses Enter: Moragg vs. Lavanthor


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.

This week's boss matchup pulls two prisoners from The Violet Hold: Moragg vs. Lavanthor. Let's take a look at the eye-popping action to find out whose bark is worse than his bite.

The usual rules apply: assume that the opponents share similar levels, health pools and damage output, and that they are fighting right there in the prison. Let's keep the 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.

Moragg, a demonic floating eye, is one of the prisoners in The Violet Hold. Moragg has a few spell tricks up his sleeve (although certainly not as many as he has tentacles).

Corrosive Saliva
Optic Link
Ray of Pain
Ray of Suffering

The great beast Lavanthor, also imprisoned in The Violet Hold, may look familiar to old-school raiders: yep, he's a Core Hound. As such, his tactics are basic: bark fire, bite hard.

Cauterizing Flames
Flame Breath
Lava Burn

The smackdown
Remember: no group-tactic or game-mechanic nitpicking. Vote for the spirit of the battle as set forth above. Set aside differences in opponents' health pools, game level and actual damage output, and size up these villains based on their fighting style.

It's not just who wins -- it's why. What's your reasoning behind who ends up victorious? Post your comments -- let's come up with what goes down!
