Rise up, heroes of the Horde and Alliance — part 4 of the Elemental invasion is now live as part of the continuing Pre-Cataclysm events in World of Warcraft.
Your capital cities are burning and rumbling, cultists are wreaking havoc, and new mini-bosses are ready to be slain, and even reward pretty 251 loot in the process. Open up two bosses at a time by defending Orgrimmar and Thunderbluff, or Ironforge and Stormwind. Then click on a portal to get transported to your boss of choice. You’ll see no trash – just a straight-forward boss fight with a few mobs thrown in. Be ready to fight when you queue. WoW head has a good walkthrough of the event, but if you prefer no spoilers, just head on to the capital city of your choice and jump into the fray.
I’ve so far worked my way to the Fire and Earth bosses — Grand Ambassador Flamelash and Crown Princess Theradras. Apparently the Thunderbluff event is a bit buggy on my server, so the Water and Air bosses have not yet opened up. But hopefully they will soon!
Mind your timing — the events seem to happen about every 3 hours, with portals to the mini-bosses only remaining open for 30 minutes. Good luck, and have fun.
