Jan 28th 2010 12:22PM Wow! Someone actually using the Looking for Raid Group option. And I thought those people were a myth.
Jan 28th 2010 11:55AM You have to wonder if Blizz adds these froggers just for the lulz.
Jan 28th 2010 9:54AM Rotface, how I hate thee. Our ten man group was progressing right along until hit him. So many wipes. We started with me tanking the ooze as pally tank, but I could never get the sweet spot of kiting him so that I wasn't within what seems like a ridiculous 20 yard melee range but not too far that the ooze was cutting the corners and aoe bombing the group. And if a small ooze spawned in a wrong spot, and avengers shield was on cool-down i was out of luck, trying to get it off healers etc.
Our Hunter stepped up, and volunteered to kite the ooze. The difference was instantly noticeable. Once she got the distance, speed and everything, we got some good attempts. As a hunter, she had so many more tools for kiting, dealing with the few, small adds spawning in bad spots, and keeping up threat. The only thing we are needing to work on is keeping her up through the large slime pools, and I am sure we will get rotface down this week.
IMO, DK Tanks are probably the best kiters for ooze's closely followed by hunters. Just my opinion of course.
Jan 21st 2010 10:18AM Our 10-man was working on Festergut, and after getting the strategy down, we got him down to 3% and 2% several times before wiping to the harsh enrage timer which instantly kills everyone in the group. I suggest that myself, a pally tank, the other pally tank, and the pally healer to pop our bubbles to see if we can extend the fight just a little bit longer. We also tweak a few things with the dps, and go again.
This time we get him to 1.5% before he enrages. I am the only pally to get my bubble up in time. Everyone else dies, and I sit there and whittle away at the rest of his health by myself with whatever DOTs are left on him, and he goes down with 2 sec left on my bubble. We all start hooting and hollering over vent.
Of course, I had to take a SS and do some dancing before I got to rezzing everyone. You've got to relish the moment. ;-) There are some times that it's really great to be a pally.
