The Daily Grind: What's your favorite boss mechanic?
The Daily Grind What's your favorite boss mechanic
It seems to me that it's got to be tough for MMO developers to constantly come up with new boss fight mechanics. I mean, consider how many games and bosses have been made by now, and yet players still expect something they've never seen before. That's got to be daunting.

I'd love to hear about your favorite boss fight mechanic today. Let's go beyond the red circles of doom and dig deep, people!
