Crusaders' Coliseum Q & A

Blizzard has released a slightly less than comprehensive Q & A about the new Crusaders' Coliseum instances to be released in patch 3.2. Feel free to check out the questions and their respective answers here.

One of the more interesting pieces of information shared is the magic number for tribute run attempts. According to the development team, heroic raiders will be capped at 50 attempts per reset to reach the post instance loot cache. The less of those "wipes" used, the better the loot. It is an interesting system, especially in light of the new instance reset delay feature as guilds will need to choose between using attempt number 20 to try to push past boss number 3 or allowing the instance to reset and starting at boss 1 with a fresh 50.

Unfortunately, the Q & A fails to address one of the most confusing elements of the instance which the developers have alluded to on the forums. Supposedly, different bosses will be introduced to the Coliseum on different weeks. Thus far, the community has been left in the dark as to how this will work and what it means for progress focused raiders. Here's hoping things get cleared up before 3.2 drops later this week.
