There is a radio station that I listen to most mornings here in SD. Every Tuesday they do this bit known as the Mt. Rushmore list. Today they had the list be about movie villains. They each do their own list then they poll callers. The 4 movie villains that made Mt. Rushmore were: Hannibal Lecter, Dark Knight’s Joker, Darth Vader and Freddie Kruger.
I thought I would do this a little different. I was curious who people would list for their Mt. Rushmore of WoW villains. Now I am not talking about raid bosses, but the 5 man bosses or just quest mobs. Post your replies in the comments and put a little blurb as to why.
Here are mine in no particular order:
Prince Valanar in the Last Rites quest in Borean Tundra.
I think this stands out for me because I just re-did this quest on my DK. This quest shows up as a 3 person quest. Slice and I couldn’t pull it off 2 manning it. I remember with all my other toons having to either group up (Millea was in a group of 5) or have a guildie pop over on their 80 and help me kill it. Hell, I remember having someone’s 80 die as we tried to 2 man it. Frankly I think Valanar was easier in ICC.
Priestess Delrissa in Heroic Magister’s Terrace
Now I have never done this boss at the appropriate level, but she is a BITCH even at 80. Slice and I have been farming HMGT for the pet and mount (and rep for him) and at first we went in as a Ret Pally and an Aff Lock. Wipes are not fun as level 80. Now that he has gone back to a prot offspec we have an easier time 2 manning this place. Even then this fight causes problems. I can only imagine what it was like at 70.
Arazzius the Cruel in the Cruel’s Intentions Quest in Hellfire Peninsula
While this isn’t exactly a really hard quest, it is still a pain in the ass. This guy hits like a truck and is tough enough to where (unless you are a tank) you will really want to group up to kill him. On all of my toons I only needed 1 or 2 others to help (depending on their level) in order to get him down. Still a PITA.
Shade of Arugal in Hour of the Worg quest in Grizzly Hills.
HATE, HATE, HATE this quest. Even at 80 I have a hard time soloing this on my casters. Since I have only ever leveled up casters (yes druid was leveled boomkin) I don’t know how cake this fight is as a tank or an armored class. I just know I had a hell of a time attempting to solo this fight. Even with the NPC’s help (or lack thereof) I think I wipe at least once or twice each time I try to do this quest. I was in GH the other day on fail mage and there was a level 80 shadow priest trying to find someone to help her complete that quest. At least now I know I am not alone in hating that quest.
Honorable mention: The storm giant quest in ZD. I only completed that quest once. I will NEVER do that quest again.
So what are your top 4 WoW villains?
