Stormstout Brewery Normal / Heroic Quick-Read Tactics: Ook-Ook, Hoptallus and Yan-Zhu the Uncasked

by on September 25, 2012

If you thought the Wolpertinger was slightly silly, the new Mists Of Pandaria instance Stormstout Brewery is going to blow your mind. Chem Stormstout’s beloved brewery has been overrun by critters. It’s your job to get in there and sort it out. During the process, you’ll fight a drunken monkey called Ook-Ook, Hoptallus (a giant rabbit-thing) and Yan-Zhu the Uncasked (a monster made entirely of beer). If that all sounds a bit too much, don’t worry. MMO Melting Pot has your back. Our quick-read strategies give you exactly what you need to conquer the Stormstout Brewery: no big walls of text, just the facts, formatted for easy copy-paste to your party chat!

If there’s someone in your group who isn’t certain about the tactics, click in the text box below each boss to auto-select a single line of tactics. We’ve checked them to make sure they’ll fit in a single line of party chat. Then CTRL+C to copy it, go back into WoW, start Party Chat, and CTRL+V to paste all the tactics your group needs!

(On a Mac, that’s Command-C and Command-V)
