MWIW: PTR 3.3 The Forge of Souls & Pit of Saron + NEW LFG review (Semi-Spoilers!!!)

So, as I updated in my short update post over the weekend… I hit the PTR to check out 3.3 the release of the Icecrown Citadel.

I made the following characters on the PVE Server on the PTR, so if your playing on the PTR please feel free to message me and maybe we can run some stuff together!!!

Giggidee (Rogue), Giggilocks (Warlock), Giggadin (Pally), Giggi (Druid)

The ususally 2 DPS, 1 Tank, and 1 Healer.

First let me talk about the new LFG system or other wise known as the “Dungeon Finder” system.  First off, I just want to say that I REALLY like how this systems works.  I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, but when I fired it up I was really impressed… basically you choose what dungeon (s) that you want to do… you can choose specific ones or you can go random.  You mark off that you want to do in the group… heal, dps, tank… and then you wait in que… after a short min this box pops up and check marks that they have found classes to fulfill each roll, and you random group is teleported directly to the instance. NEAT!!!

Next… MAJOR SPOILER ALERT!!! I ran 2 of the 3 new 5-man dungeons; The Forge of Souls and Pit of Saron.  They were very exciting and there is a great story as you follow Jaina (or Sylvannas) through the dungeon… there is a chain quest that is very important in order to progress through 3 of the new dungeons… as well as get attuned to go into 10/25-mans.

The Forge of Souls

2 bosses, relatively short

Bronjahm – first boss, named after “James Brown,” this guy has the title of <keep of souls> or <godfather of souls> something like that. Very funny. A basic tank a spank, nothing too serious.

Devourer of Souls – the second boss, he looks like a big head (kind like that boss in Hellfire)… big things to worry about are the circles he summons on the floor… they hurt… there are adds too but I ignore them.

At the end Jaina will open a portal to the next instance!!!

Pit of Saron

3 bosses, also pretty short… but longer than the first

Forgemaster Garfrost – a huge giant is the first boss… basic tank and spank… he runs back and forth between different percentages to get a new weapon.. kind of like the guy in Deadmines before you get on the boat… just a bigger scale.

Krick and Ick – an abomination type boss with a gnome riding on him… watch out of the acid he spills on the ground (green)… mondo damage! also watch out of random AOE explosions that the gnome on the top of him creates.

Scourgelord Tyrannus – Darth Tyrannus? hahaha the last boss… pretty simple… turn and burn.. he spawns adds… he can be a pain in the ass as he didn’t seem to have an aggro table when we fought him… he ran all over the place…

Didn’t get a chance to do  Halls of Refelction but hopefully soon… if you log on a look me up we can run it together!!!
