    It's hard to draw conclusions, but I smell another C'thun-like nerf.

    I honestly think something is a bit fishy with their Saffron Kill. I mean, the boss has an AoE DBZ attack that hits everyone who isn't icelocked for 86000 damage or something thereabouts, and the icelock does 600 damage a second for a bunch of time or until that AoE attack of doom hits. So they mean to say that they found a way to keep everyone alive, and got everyone to freeze, AND got some way to keep anyone with lower HP alive through the DOT of the Icelock... hmm

    OMG Blizz plz nurf this boss he iz 2 hard 4 most grps unless they hav beter gear than this qwest givs how iz that fare WTF iz rong with u guyz plz lrn2play ur own game!!1!1

    Oh sorry, thought this was a Valthalak or Baron 45 thread. :p

    Anyway, I was suprised at how quickly they took out Sapphiron as well, considering how long it took for them (or anyone) to beat the Four Horsemen. That said, I've read that Sapph has now been killed by 3 or 4 guilds, so perhaps the encounter is a little too easy, or the "trick" to beating him was too obvious.

    Well the trick to beating him isn't tough to figure out... (Get everyone Icelocked or they croak, I guess Paladins could shield instead) Actually... Paladins shielding would explain how they kept people up through the Icelock. Well I guess the Horde will not be beating this encounter till BC.

    What about a flask of petrification? Don't those function the same as class immunity spells?

    I assumed you just had to get out of one freeze in which case the flask would work.

    It seems that Sapp is a resist check encounter. Tigole stated that he thought Sapp would be down the same night 4 horsemen went down and the third kill went to a EU Horde guild.

    Paladin Blessing of Protection is only against melee attacks so it wouldn't do any good against Sapp's frost attacks. Unless you meant the paladin Divine Shielding and healing but i don't see how they alone can heal the rest of the raid

    Divine shield + 8/9 Tier 3 + 5-6 paladins = healing

    It was edited down to hide their fight, which makes me even more displeased.

    Big guilds are usually protective of their strats. Some of them even try to sell them.
