Welcome to the Icecrown Restaurant!

If there was such a thing as the Icecrown Restaurant, your head chef would be none other than Sindragosa, who serves up for your raid a Mystic Buffet, with a side order of RNG.

Seriously, who the fuck thought this achievement in its current state would be a good idea? There's way too many variables and having even one of these fall out of line by a fraction of a second will cause you miss the train on the achievement and have to endure nine minutes of hell all over again.

Let's look at all the things that can go wrong:

You can have your tanks get Ice Tombed, a Taunt resist, among a host of potential RNG issues. Not to mention that every member of your raid needs to be absolutely perfect at all times, which are extremely lofty expectations to set for a gimmick achievement - and often the tanks can do everything correctly and still fail the achievement.

I wouldn't mind it so much if the rest of the fight was actually enjoyable and wasn't absolute hell to do. Oh, and they replaced Sindragosa's voice actor with someone that has some talent at voice acting.
