I LOVE Putricide. My guild wondered how I keep damage up as a ret pally on that fight, but everyone is busy watching their own screen and never saw my secret until I got targeted by the orange ooze during a phase transition one night. I was watching tht timer and the green ooze's positioning and ran right up to the green target and stood there. The whole raid started screaming for me to keep kiting and run, everyone started to panic, and then they all started laughing and cheering when the green ooze exploded and threw me completely across the room, right next to the professor, and just in time to refresh my DoT stack on the boss and get back into the fray.You always try to do cool things like that, but when they go off exactly like you saw them in your head, you feel like a damn superhero.Also, don't forget that Sindragosa is outside. When you get pulled in, Ghost Wolf out to range and you'll get an extra second or so for another SS before you have to run out and then another second once you're out to drop an extra lightning bolt before she casts.

So you're saying that you soak up a good amount of unnecessary damage just to add a small amount to your own dps? Why are you happy about making a fight harder for other people in your raid?

It's about knowing your healers, Wat. I run with the same people every week, and I have a good buddy as my raid healer. He knows I like to do certain things and he knows how to handle certain things. Jumping into green oozes to explode towards Putricide is one of the things I try to do (rarely does it work out perfectly).If you are familiar with your healers and vice versa, taking trivial amounts of damage to pile on the hurt is perfectly acceptable.

I don't think you quite understand the fight, he wasn't taking ANY unecessary damage.The orange ooze will hurt you over time even if you are running away, and by getting hit by the green explosion he was taking damage away from the rest of the raid. This explosion does a set amount of damage and splits it between all of the targets in range, so it helps to have as many people as possible get hit in order for it not to one-shot anyone.

Thank you , Imnick.Wat: Maybe learn a fight's mechanics before telling someone they're doing it wrong.
