Ozumat

7,749,000hp
About:
This fight is a phased defensive fight. You have to ward off waves of attackers for 5 minutes until Neptulon becomes enraged and kills Ozumat (my speculation)
Loot:
At the end of the fight, there will be a cache, such as the one in Ulduar's Hodir fight. The contents of the Cache are as yet unknown, but speculation suggests it will contain a loot table of around 7 I279 Blue quality items

The boss fights do currently have strategy notes on them; but at this point this guide is merely a preview of what to expect from loot, health pools, abilities etc. Once cataclysm goes live I will revise this from a Preview to an Actual guide, and also eventually do a sister guide for the heroic encounter.

As usual I encourage any discussion and suggestions in the comment, as I will usually add them in should I deem it conducive.

As a bonus, with permission from Cynical Brit I have a Cataclysm Beta video walk-through.
