    I'll probably attempt to make a guide video for every boss when I can. Did get to record all the normal boss kills so far, but will take some time to edit it all. I know that normal tactics are different to mythic, but I'm just wanting to give any people who'd be new or haven't done the bosses before a quick look...rather than the boss guides that take like 10 minute per boss. <- Gruul

    Here is a map of Oregorger's room which shows in simple terms which way he will run ... bare in mind each time he hits a pink spot he stops looks around then makes a choice to go one of the two possible ways along the short wall or around a part of the outside square which is 3 corners in one roll.

    As you can see collision points exist on each of the corners of the inner square....therefore the only time he goes along more than 1 wall before stopping is around the outside areas. If you are generally the type of person who gets run over a lot lack speed boosts etc then hang around the centre that way you have plenty of time to see him coming and he will only run along the one wall before stopping.
