Ok, so a while back we were fighting against the blue dragonflight. Then we got a little sidetracked with the whole fight for Azeroth’s survival against the Lich King and everything.
But you know what? let’s take a break from all that dumb stuff, because Malygos is trying to eat all the world’s magic. Magic that we might need to shoot Arthas with Arcane Missles or something. So let’s kill us a Dragon Aspect!
Degree of Difficulty: Medium
The trash is very simple and only really serves as filler to extend the length of the raid. It’s just a bunch of mobs to kill. There is one section where several raid members will need to fight on hovering discs which is fairly annoying, but not exactly raid threatening.
Malygos is the only boss, and he’s an interesting one. Phase One is a fairly simple tank and spank, interrupted only briefly by a Vortex attack that draws everyone in and drops them and Power Sparks that need to be stopped or else will increase his damage. Phase two is the aforementioned floating discs section, in which some melee DPS need to pull off Maly and chase down the Nexus Lords floating around him.
The final phase starts when Malygos collapses the platform and the Red Dragonflight picks you up. Then it’s a vehicle section. So…yay. I guess? Keep your raid spread ou to avoid being nuked by AoE, have the healers keep healing and everybody else fire off some spells. It’s not a difficult section.
Killing mobs in this raid grants you reputation with either the Alliance Vanguard, or whatever faction’s tabard you are currently wearing. A key is no longer required to start the instance. Malygos will drop an Azure Drake (25 man) or Blue Drake (10 Man).
Recommended for Levels: 80
There’s no reason…not to run it, I guess? Especially if you want a shot at one of those drakes. Current gear vastly over-levels the content, and with only a few trash mobs and one boss the raid does not take long.
Plus, current storylines reference the events in the Eye of Eternity fairly often, so it’s worth seeing if you’re interested in the Lore aspect. Otherwise, as with so many other old raids, there isn’t really a concrete reason to kill this particular Dragon Aspect right now.
