I removed the line "some guilds use druids to tank" because really, a tank is better tanking and a walock may get a +60 shadow resistance bonus. Also, i dont think you can handle bugs with just one tank.

Sirence: I'm planning on changing the strategy section to include the 3 major options for tanking the emps.

2 Warriors, non-moving
2 Warriors, backing away from Vek'Lor
2 Warriors, 2 Warlocks

if no objections, I will be doing the re-write sometime next week (6/19-24)

There are two ways to tank them with warlocks, depending whether warrior or warlock gets initial aggro on the caster emp after teleport. So you'll have 4 total options. --Itinerant 15:15, 19 June 2006 (EDT)

Is it worth adding any info RE: Thunderfury on this fight? --Morbid-o 15:03, 12 July 2006 (EDT)

It says for Vek'lor: "Arcane Burst - 4000 arcane damage AoE counterattack whenever a player is within melee range. " Is this a correct information ? From all what I know the arcane burst is the punishment for melee damage on the caster, not for standing in melee range.--Thundor 05:58, 11 August 2006 (EDT)

No, it's triggered merely by standing in melee range. No melee damage is necessary to trigger the attack. Eorl 02:54, 18 September 2006 (EDT)

Do mortal strikes on the sword twin work to reduce healing? On the page it says they heal for 30K; does this mean that they heal 60K per heal (because they both heal the other twin)? Or is it 30K total?

This question is interesting only in a theoretical sense. If the Emps ever get within heal range of one another, it's pretty much a guaranteed wipe, because you will not have enough time to bring them down before they Enrage, MS up or no. Eorl 02:54, 18 September 2006 (EDT)
We have had successful attempts where they have healed a few % with mediocre gear. Given the speed of the quickest kills (6+ minutes to spare), it's easily possible to damage through a short heal. As for how it can happens, a bad AE knockback on a warrior combined with a very slow warlock will potentially bring Vek'lor too close. --Suction 22:25, 7 December 2006 (EST)

When Emperor Vek'nilash (melee) is hit by magic damage (e.g. effect of Perdition Blade's Fire effect), does he punish the whole Raid by sending the magic damage to everyone in the Raid? Has Emperor Vek'lor a similar effect? --Wulf4096 2006-11-18 23:13 UTC

Hitting Vek'nilash with magic (or Vek'lor with melee) has no effect at all. --Suction 22:25, 7 December 2006 (EST)


anybody else notice how monstrously effeminate these two are? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Diegoamerez (talkcontr). 04:52, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

They share the same skeletons (animations) as male Night elves you know. --Adys 04:50, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

More Lore

This article could use more lore, who on earth are they? Timb0h (talk) 11:57, 16 May 2008 (UTC)

They're the twin rulers of the Qiraji Empire. And... That's really about it. We can't add lore that doesn't exist. -- Dark T Zeratul (talk)

Always Rulers?

Are the Aqir immortal, and if so, were the Twin Emperors always the rulers of Ahn'qiraj? Like during the times post-Black Empire to now?  sawpog46 19:08,6/21/2016

There doesn't seem to be any evidence the aqir are immortal. However, we don't know what the lifespan of aqir are at all, unfortunately. I would think as insectoids, it is unlikely they are immortal. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 24 Jun 2016 4:40 PM Pacific

Expand history of Aqir

I wonder if Blizzard Entertainment will ever expand upon the history of the Aqir. Anyways, thanks for the reply.  {{SUBST:User:sawpog46/Sig|01:28,8/1/2016}}

They may do some in World of Warcraft: Chronicle Volume 2. --Gengar orange 22x22Beware the sneaky smile! Fandyllic (talk · contr) 2 Aug 2016 4:49 PM Pacific
