Can Paladin bubbles or iceblock cheese portions of this?     Particularly in regards to a paladin tank bubbling to avoid/remove the tank debuffs but also possibly the charge victim iceblocking or bubbling solo?

Not 100% sure on this. Will double check and give an answer.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong but it seems you could boil down the optimal tank strategy to "taunt when Ursoc uses Overwhelm or Rend Flesh." You don't even need to look at your debuff if the rotation Ursoc uses is correct in this guide. The only downside to boiling it down that way is one of the tanks will take a few extra melee hits with 2 stacks of Overwhelm.

You're probably right. I'm super tired for having to take over these guides at the last minute due to some issues with our writer. I'll go through that part again tomorrow once I'm rested :P

Looks like this has now been updated by Damien. Thanks again for pointing it out!

Can confirm bubbles work on the bleed at least. Was able to solo tank long enough for the other tank to be b-res'd several times.

Hello guys, this boss is not just hard for tanks. Healers must be really good to keep the raid members alive. BTW our tanks, they move before the boss start casting Miasma. This is my guild killed on Heroic. I hope it will help you.

I'm sure it will help someone, so thanks for the comment and well done on the kill :)

Hi there,

Is there any place on this website where people share how they use their spells and change their talents to best adapt to a given boss?

I remember there was such a thing on SoO, and it would avoid 50 wipes to find a pro-tip that others had already discovered the hard way.

Thanks!

You can always ask on the class forums for more boss-specific advice - players there can give you a hand :)

      In this article, we're taking a look at content worth finishing before Battle for Azeroth goes live.
      Ahead of the Curve: Argus the Unmaker & Cutting Edge: Argus the Unmaker
      Both achievements will be removed once the pre-patch goes live. If you don't have the achievement yet, the first round of Mythic Argus nerfs has already been deployed to live servers, so defeating Argus on Mythic difficulty should be easier now. 
      The Chosen Achievement
      The achievement will become unobtainable in Battle for Azeroth.
      Placeholder for tweet 1008845805501837316 A Challenging Look (Mage Tower Artifact Apppearance)
      Blizzard confirmed that the Mage Tower will be permanently up at some point before Battle for Azeroth goes live, but they did not clarify if they meant the pre-patch or the actual expansion. Given how Azerite traits no longer work on 8.0 PTR, it's safe to assume we're going to see an announcement regarding the permanent Mage Tower in the coming days.
      Field Medic Achievement
      First Aid will be removed in Battle for Azeroth and all achievements related to the Profession will become Feats of Strength.
      Brawler's Guild Removal
      Brawler's Guild will be on hiatus with the release of BfA, but it's very likely that we'll see it return later on in Patch 8.1 or 8.1.5. Don't forget to get the Brawler's Burly Basilisk mount!
      Strand of Ancients Removal
      The battleground will be removed in Battle for Azeroth. Achievements will turn into Feats of Strength (Master of Strand of the Ancients).
      Kirin Tor Summoning Crystal Mount
      Violet Spellwing will not be available soon. Finish the "Blood of a Titan" quest by looting Blood of the Unmaker from Argus on Heroic difficulty or higher.
      Legion Mythic Difficulty Mounts
      As is tradition, the drop rate of Mythic difficulty raid mounts will be reduced to 1% when Battle for Azeroth goes live. Legion only introduced two Mythic mounts to the game:
      Gul'dan (Fiendish Hellfire Core) Argus (Shackled Ur'zul)

      With Battle for Azeroth just two months away, Blizzard has updated the old Legion login screen with a new one in this week's Beta Build 26871.
      The background is comprised of a sunlit sky and birds flying over the walls of Lordaeron, while in the forefront, we see various artifacts that solidify Battle for Azeroth's main theme -- the upcoming faction conflict.
      The main title music has been previewed earlier and you can listen to the whole track below.
      Blizzard (Source)
      With every expansion, our musical mages reach deep down into their souls and summon a tableau of sound to accompany your next adventure. Building upon a variety of musical themes from World of Warcraft over the years, composer Glenn Stafford has infused his magic into the new main title for Battle for Azeroth, “Before the Storm.” Sit back, relax, and let the music carry you into the heart of Azeroth.
      “Before the Storm” was composed and arranged by Glenn Stafford; features additional music by Neal Acree, Sam Cardon, Clint Bajakian, and David Arkenstone; and includes classic World of Warcraft themes by Jason Hayes.

      A short batch today as Battle for Azeroth approaches, focusing on Antorus Mythic. It's all about the final boss, Argus the Unmaker, nerfing his health and two abilities.
      June 19 (source)
      Antorus, The Burning Throne Sargeras' Rage and Fear damage reduced by 15%. Argus' health reduced by 3% in Mythic Difficulty.
