The world opens bit by bit, and this week we can finally enter the Emerald Nightmare normal and heroic. World bosses have started populating the Broken Isles as well, and more will come the following weeks. How prepared are you?
Some of you have probably raced through world bosses and the entire new raid already. Maybe you’ve even had done it all on the Beta previously. In any case, the Emerald Nightmare was new to me and my whole raid raced through Normal difficulty yesterday to try out our new recruits. We will continue with Heroic this week too.
Prepping for the raid, I started making some personal notes on each boss to help me remember important mechanics. It started out simple, with a few more notes than the dungeon journal. Then of course, because I am me, it became a little bit more excessive in detail. So I thought to myself, since I won’t do a full-blown encounter guide (there are already so many good ones out there), I can at least release my personal notes on the bosses.
They’re not done yet, but I suspect I can polish it up through this week and then release the notes next week. I usually write a little about the mechanics I find difficult myself for one reason or another. But since we only blasted through Normal so far, I have seen little of the mechanics as everything dies too fast on that difficulty. But we will do heroics tonight and the rest of the week, so I can continue my work on them then.
On a different note, if you don’t follow me on twitter you might not know, but a nightmare of my own happened a few days ago. My family’s dog took ill and he had to be put down. He was like a furry little brother I’ve known for more than half of my life, and getting that call from my father with the news was like a gut punch. I’m not going to explain the depths of my grief in detail, I just wanted to notify you that although I still work on my blog and Patreon, I will likely do so rather distractedly for awhile. I hope you can understand.
