The Throne of Tides is the first on the instances that will be located in the Vashj’ir underwater zone, and one of the first two that you are likely to explore in Cataclysm. It is a gorgeous example of what Blizzard can create for five player content and what we should all hope to see more of. Join us as Byron "Messiah" Mudry walks you through what you should expect to see in this instance when World of Warcraft Cataclysm launches.

The trash creatures (enemies in an instance that are not the boss) are varied and challenging.  While most of the groups can be handled without any form of crowd control (CC), it can be helpful. Of special note are the large naga guardians, that drop poison puddles that tick for a lot of damage (get out fast!), and the nagas capable of healing. The naga healers are especially nasty as they can heal a significant amount and if the group does not focus on them will stay up for a long time.
