Upgrading Your WoW Account: Firelands Part 5
Buy WoW Account: Part 5 of the Firelands
With one last boss in the Firelands proper, you are well on your way to taking on Ragnaros in his fiery throne. The last boss before the gate opens is Shannox. Technically, he can be the first boss if you wish it, but it is just easier to save him for last because he spawns when you kill enough mobs in the Firelands. You will hear hints on his appearance every few mobs you kill with the sound of hunting horns getting louder and louder. Eventually, he will spawn and make snide comments about hunting down the intruders. From here on, he will spawn from the gate into Ragnaros’ domain and patrol the Firelands in a clockwise pattern.

Make sure to clear out the all the mobs in the area where you wish to engage him so as not to add to the difficulty of the encounter. Shannox has two (2) guard dogs that patrol around with him and aid him in combat. This is one of the three fights that can be incredibly difficult to solo. Rageface, one of the dogs, is capable of stun locking and continuously damaging a target player indefinitely, with its damage getting stronger and stronger as time passes. Without dealing any damage to Rageface, the dog will not let go and you will watch yourself suffer a slow and agonizing wipe.
In order to deal with this, you HAVE to take down both the dogs as FAST as possible. If you don’t, wiping will be your inevitable fate. If you simply can’t dish out enough dps to kill them immediately, you can ask a friend, who doesn’t mind getting locked out of the Firelands for his or her own run, to help you. Shannox also throws down some traps that can also stun you forever, but those are easily avoidable so long as you are observant on the bear traps on the ground.

Shannox, himself, however, is not a problem. As I said earlier, avoid the traps and destroy his face at your leisure. He doesn’t drop anything of great import other than transmog and other vendor items, as well as improving your WoW account value. The next boss, Baelroc, has the possibility of being much harder than him, however.
