     400 cheeses? Hell there must be more cheeses than that in the world.

    If I remember correctly (I cannot seem to find my copy of the magazine..) but it was referring to the date that had the most botters banned, not that there were that many up to that point.

    FYI, I am not trying to be a jerk, just wanted to clear some points up that might be confusing to some, and I also saw you left out the total running cost.

    That's the statistic which really impressed me.

    A single 5-man boss getting that many kills! I know he's one of the nastier 5-man boss, but even so... Loken really isn't that difficult for any half decent player, even on heroic.

    Simple Strategy 1: All stand in a tightish group in front of the boss. Mark the tank with a triangle. When Loken does his nova thing, the tank runs away and everyone else follows the big floating triangle. After the nova, tank heads back to the boss and everyone follows.

    That wasn't so hard was it? There's an ever simpler strategy that works if you have a decent AoE healer and competent DPS:

    Simple strategy 2: All stand in tightish group in front of the boss. Healer spams AoE heals.  DPS like crazy. No one moves, no matter what. Kill the boss before the healer notices how hard his job is.

    (note - strategy 2 doesn't require raid gear, just the right healer class (priest/shammie) and competence).

    Pretty much a core concept of all encounters in wow. Dont stand in the "Blank"  : insert - fire, acid, lava, nova, flame breath, tail swipe, lightning ball, tornado of saws etc.

    Moving is a very difficult concept for some people.
