Two Bosses Enter ... but only One Boss Leaves, in WoW.com's series of fantasy death matches. Welcome to Round Two of the five-man Wrath of the Lich King season. Grab a seat, and let's get ready to rumble!
Gortok Palehoof and his menagerie of stuffed death came alive on Lavanthor in this week's Two Bosses Enter Thunderdome. The puppy barked up just 29% of the reader vote under Palehoof and Company's onslaught. Rai calls it for the winning team:
Rai: Both Gortok and Lavanthor are essentially fighting for their freedom, as that's the situation they are faced with when you fight them in their respective instances. This might be an important point.
As long as Lavanthor is stronger than each individual minion of Gortok, he should have no problem killing them in any order, until Gortok himself enters the fray. By this point, Lavanthor will be injured. Lavanthor would create some more distance between the pair, and the battle would become a fire-spittin', spear-throwin' ranged showdown.
Assuming the spears aren't fireproof, with some careful aim (who am I kidding? lava spat all over the place), a lot of them might not even reach Lavanthor. However, Gortok would have been using Withering Roar this entire time, so Lavanthor's health is getting lower and lower ...
A stray spear works around the lava and hits Lavanthor between the eyes. The puppy is down, but it's very close. If Gortok is lucky, he won't die from his burn injuries.
