Number of bosses

- The page states there are 5 bosses in the zone, but 6 are listed.


  • [1], judging from the screenshot, she's an archer, and you have to kill a sporebat to get some kind of buff. but thats pure speculation User:CrazyJack/Sig 02:51, 28 March 2007 (EDT)

When to Start?

Retrieve the Earthen Signet from Gruul the Dragonkiller. Retrieve the Blazing Signet from Nightbane in Karazhan.

Do we take this as a big hint from Blizzard that Nightbane, Gruul and the start of Serpentshrine is at a roughly equal difficulty, at least gearwise?

No. Hydross (first boss in SSC) is far beyond the difficulty of Gruul, let alone Nightbane. Nightbane can be done with only some Karazhan loot, Gruul generally would require a larger amount of Karazhan + Maulgar loot while Hydross requires that you have almost every item you could want from Karazhan and some Gruul's Lair loot - plus you need tanks with resist gear sorted. The gear requirements in SSC as well as the difficulty is on an entirely different level from Gruul's Lair and Karazhan. It makes sense since Karazhan, Gruul's Lair and Magtheridon's Lair are tier 4 instances while SSC and The Eye are tier 5 instances. SakkuraBalnazzar 20:27, 30 April 2007 (EDT)

Good answer - perhaps worth moving into the article itself? KelvinFrost 10:57, 8 May 2007 (EDT)


a Map of this place would be awesome... User:CrazyJack/Sig 10:26, 18 June 2007 (UTC)

Magtheridon after this?

That doesn't appear correct at all, and hence I removed it. Magtheridon drops Tier 4, SSC is all Tier 5. Stillfresh 03:24, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Pack 1 Alt Strat?

Why in the world would you kill the sporebats first? They have more health than either of the two, far more dangerous and un-CCable casters. Nevertheless, I have not edited the comment, hoping the author instead elaborates. Stillfresh 14:24, 21 June 2007 (UTC)

Boiling water

I think it'll be beneficial to get a "how to boil water" bit in this article. as the machines that regulate that are showing as "locked" by default. User:CrazyJack/Sig 05:45, 22 June 2007 (UTC)

Extra Damage from Tidewalker?

On the main SSC page it says, "Note: Morogrim Tidewalker does not deal extra damage if Lurker is killed prior to him. Patch 2.1.2".

However, I've been unable to find anything to that effect in any of the 2.1.3, 2.1.2, or 2.1.0 notes. Can anyone cite a source on this, or should it be removed?

Boss nerfs are rarely ever detailed in the patches. However, I've never seen any reports of such a bug, and I monitor the bug and raid forums. I have removed it. Stillfresh 22:45, 28 December 2007 (UTC)

Lady Vashj?

Someone noted this at the top already but it seems to have been overlooked. Every boss in SSC except Lady Vashj has a short description along with a synopsis of the trash mobs... Seems weird that the last boss only has a few link at the top of the page. A "for tactics concerning Lady Vashj" link or something seems necessary at the bottom unless a reason for omitting it has already been discussed.
