A Totally Serious Guide to Firelands

I think I’ve mentioned before that for the most part my newly returned WoW guildies skipped the last half of Cataclysm. With that in mind this weekend we’ve got a handful of max-level folks going to Firelands for the very first time. It sounds… warm!

Ellyndrial isn’t able to make it but as a former Firelands raid leader he did manage to post some boss tactics for our noob group, and I felt I should share them today on a sunny silly Friday. Have a great weekend!


Ellyndrial’s Guide to Firelands Boss Fights


Dude with dogs
– Keep the dogs away from the boss, sometimes they try to eat someone.

Spider whatsit
– Kill all the spiders, some people kill the boss, or more likely fall down the holes.

Gatekeeper something or other that stands in front of a gate
– Literally no idea.

Firebird with flying moonkin and rolling balls
– Don’t stand in the fire. Seriously, stop standing in the fire. Also, kill the balls. Also some people fly and get rings of doom and hooray.

– Steering is hard.

Dude who drops the sweet fire-cat druid staff that all the hunters always steal
– Everyone stands in when he’s a scorpion, everyone spreads out when he’s a cat, repeat.

Ragnaros has LEGS?!
– Sort of complicated, but mostly don’t get hit by the hammer and don’t get hit by the fire. Unless it’s your job.

(PS: You can find Elly on the Cat Context podcast or his blog That Angry Dwarf.)

  1. “Ragnaros has LEGS?!”


    The other thing I’d add here is “Do NOT let ANY adds touch the hammer!”

    Also maybe “ZOMG METEORS,” like my DBM always says.
