[WoW] Blackrock Foundry – TL;DR Bossfights – Part I

THIS IS PART ONE. YOU CAN FIND THE OTHER BOSSES HERE.

Blackrock Foundry opened its doors for us today and everyone who wants to participate in this new story ark is eager to kill some Iron Horde. There are already a lot of guides out there that help you to make your way through the enemy lines, but most of the time they focus on things that do not matter to you, your role or the fight at all, as long as you do not enter it on mythic.

I will try to focus on the important things in each fight and give you a short guide what and what not to do. Remember that his will probably only work for normal and heroic. Those who want to go mythic need to check their stuff out themselves 😉

Normally I prepare these kind of notes only for myself, but why not share it with you? If you find anything missing, please write it in the comments!
