where Oondasta ?

General
Post Limit:
Hello everyone. waited all day and did not see the boss. whether it will do and when?
I think it's meant to be in another island, not the main daily one, but it's not going to be a pick up group boss from what I've heard. Pretty sure fansites have guides about everything regarding the patch.

(Also, this isn't really a support issue but they'll likely move it in the morning :p)
Didn't spawn on our realm yet.

Spawns on Isle of Giants(not thunder), at least it did on the ptr.

i know!

Isle of Giants - it is here and waiting for him. it is not.
Who's seen it all?
Given it's the 'rare' boss like Galleon I doubt it has a daily respawn.
wherever....
I believe he's only available once the entire Isle of Thunder has been unlocked, though that part of me brain's gone all foggy. I might've read it wrong, but your guess is as good as mine. Nalak on the other hand I think spawns in Kun-Lai if you wanna go after him though.
It is possible to trickjump your way to the parts of the island which aren't unlocked yet but I doubt that is legal, in which case I never did it.

Edit: with trickjump I just mean trying to jump over the mountains without falling down and trying to get on leveled parts of the mountains which allows you to jump over the wall.
This has been discussed to death but they can't really tune 40man world bosses to heroic raiders when most heroic raid guilds are 10man. More likely 300 People will just zerg him with because the chain lightning thing only hits 20.

At least on PTR Oondasta was on the Isle of Giants as was said on post 3, I don't know if it's been changed though. Or if its spawn is tied to unlocking (which could be as well).

Sure, but it's tap to faction. The guilds can just work together since the loot isn't like a normal or heroic raid boss. Not sure about the zerging, they seem very confident that he won't be just zergable but I don't know why.

It is, every world boss is tap to faction.

I recall a blue post about oondasta being tuned for HC content raiders, not sure untill I have a kill on live :p

and to answer the OP, he spawns in the middle of the isle and is meant to be this tiers "galleon"

Oondasta is somewhat rare indeed, so do not expect to see him around every time you visit the Isle of Giants ;-)
Problem is that EU servers restart every morning at 05:00 these days, so if he did actually spawn he was removed again with the restarts and a new spawn cycle started.
Nelle your achievement points too much bro..wow that's much,19140..omg.
I was wondering about it myself. He's not supposed to be 'free loot' boss, so why is he still not appearing? It's not like every single fresh 90 is going to zerg him, and graveyard rushing would only result in tons of devilsaurs eating people alive - in addition to chain lightning of death.

Hell, even his loot table isn't all that impressive for the supposed difficulty. So, what gives?

no, he is the galleon of 5.2 farly rare - and even harder to kill - blue posts have said it was simular to a hc 5.2 encounter, the fact you can out number it (say bring 500 people) will make it slightly easier but not a great deal so, the tank mechanic is nice - want to see this in future raid XD

the 'free loot' sha 5.2 boss will spawn i think once the isle of thunder is in stage 2-3 and lie chen has been killed.

I'd like to have an elite world boss not a rare world boss
he is in the middle of the Isle of giants, just north from Zouchin village. Seen and killed him twice, was lagtastic and very painful. He seems to spawn every couple of days, so not actually that rare, just takes alot of people to zerg him down, or one raid group of very organised people.

Agreed, this is an amazing fight of epic proportions and really tiny arms. We definitely want players to have more chances to experience it. The epicness should be about fighting it, not about finding when it spawns, even though that can also be somewhat fun as long as the timer is not so long that it gets frustrating.

You should be able to find Mr. “Tiny Hands” Oondasta a bit more often now.

Please just don't nerf it instantly :)
