Firelands trash and Beth’Tilac thoughts

ok…Firelands…lots of trash >< ARGHH!!

Ok enough /wristing about trash.

Some thoughts about the trash.

1.) Some of the packs wander so be careful when engaging, don't facepull extra ones.
2.) The Molten Lords seem to have a major armor debuff so your tanks will want to swap. The Lords also have a knockback, so be careful you are not booted off a ledge or into more trash.
3.) The firenaga looking things. The Cauterizers – their spell to heal can be interrupted – do so.
4.) The Hellhounds also have a nasty debuff, watch out for it. It can stack and ticks 10k a sec. I think our tank got to 10 stacks..so 100k a sec…yeah not fun. Heading to Beth’tilac..CC what you can. Some of the mobs were immune but with the changes to CC, experiment! FOR SCIENCE! :)
-Note on the last major pack before the boss – it will be a Drone fighting a bunch of Hell hounds. CC what you can of the Hellhounds. Also there is a spinner off the left..kill him as he will target not only your raid but also break your CC as he is trying to fight the Hellhounds as well. You cannot fight a war of attrition with this group, if you kill one and wipe, it will respawn.
5.) The Surgers or were they chargers? They obviously charge, ranged and healers don't clump up. His charge target and anyone near it takes lots of damage.
6.) The scorpions in the big area, not bad just picked em all up and burned them down.
7.) Forgot to note, to summon Shannox, you will need to kill a certain amount of trash. Appears one of each type. When we killed a charger, molten lord, some naga, and some scorpions. A game message said the Huntsman Horn is heard off in the distance or something.

Well besides trash…Firelands is quite nice looking. I cannot wait to head back in.

Last night we did manage to get a recipe drop! :) The Plate tanking gloves (grats Arv!) But Boo on Blizzard for making them random drops…./sigh.

Anyways back to Beth'Tilac.

SR went in and we put some good attempts in. Besides the initial seeing the fight for the 1st time and some silly mistakes, good progress was made.

1.) If you can taunt spinners, do so. It will allow the spec ops team to get to the top faster, and will make spinners stop spitting on people.
2.) Slowing down the Spiderling is a nice. Also make sure you kill adds efficiently.
3.) Spec ops team – watch out and don't fall down in error or don't forget to jump down as well!
4.) Having a central stack point is nice, helps out the healers on the bottom a lot. DPS and tanks don't deviate too much from it if possible. (Actually makes CH useful :P)
5.) Call out when jumping up. The spec ops healer doesn't want to miss their tank going up. Likewise…don't go up before the tank! XD
6.) Like Magmaw and Cho'gall, add management is key in p1 it appears, you can easily get overrun if you cannot kill effectively and efficiently.
7.) This Fight does seem to favor ranged. :( Poor Melee.

    When the spinners come down they will hold aggro on whomever was pew pewing on them. They do have a melee, but it isn’t that bad (even on a clothie) so just kill them where you stand.

    We run with 2 hunters and a lock, all of our pets were being sent to the Drone when it came out. The hunters were taking care of the little spiders so once the Spinners were dead I switched to the Drone and just tried to focus fire him down. If the first one isn’t dead before the next one comes out, then the tank will usually die. OR the drone will climb up to the boss and cause problems up on the web.

      lol that was funny the one time it happened. I was all like ‘Arv wtf are you doing with a drone up here?? Are ya trying to tank both parts at once???’

    Also, there is a spider and it is bad. Then there’s more spiders that are bad, this is aside from the big spider that is bad–that you should look out for. Sometimes the spiders will kill people, don’t let this happen!! You need to react and kill the spiders first, be quick! If you have enough hunters anything is possible, shaman help too, sometimes other classes are important. You can use heroism to kill spiders, but only do this if necessary and you have at least 3 death knights. Mostly, just kill spiders and you’ll be okay. It’s really not as hard as it seems once you figure out how to kill the spiders and sometimes the drones right away. Don’t forget the big spider!

      LMAO trout!

      • June 29, 2011 at 4:01 pm

        wtf is heroism?

        • June 29, 2011 at 4:03 pm

          Heroism: acting like a hero. Basically using your awesome skills to get crap killed. Be the hero, don’t let others be the hero instead! This means you lose, and no one wants to be the loser of the raid. Use your inner heroism and anything is possible. Even killing the big spider, if you don’t get the killing blow it’s because you weren’t using your heroism.

          • June 29, 2011 at 4:05 pm

            Only use your heroism if there are at least 3 death knights because death knights need to be reminded they aren’t heroes, even if they are called a hero class, that’s bullshit and they need to know this.

    As the Alpha Leader for the away team fighting Charlotte up top, I’ll give a couple of observations:

    - The away team (1 tank, 1 healer and least 1 dps, preferrably a ranged) needs to get up top as soon as possible, to keep Charlotte from AOE’ing the raid below too long. Try to time the tank and healer going up at the same time, if possible. If not, save CDs for her AOE blast at the top.
    - She will periodically send meteors to create holes in the web. They will appear at first as lava pools, then a meteor will hit the spot, creating a hole to the ground level. Avoid falling through these holes until it’s time to jump back down.
    - When she beings to emote that her shell is begining to sparkle, it’s time to GTFO! Jump down one of the holes created by the meteors or the large hole in the middle of the web.
    - Assist with the Bravo team in downing any remaining adds.
    - This phase will happen three times, after the third jump down to the ground floor, Charlotte will come down permanently and start phase 2.

      Arv, they need the ranged to kill adds before they reach the Drone. Good luck getting them to give us a ranged up top.

        It was preferred, not required lol =P

        See I tried to get Slice to let me go up top and the melee down below just taunt the spinners down, but nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

        The only reason why I suggested ranged is depending on when the dps goes up, they could be either too far from the boss or surrounded by meteor holes. I know Vysh had this issue a couple times last night.

    • June 29, 2011 at 4:07 pm

      I already said all this.

    • June 29, 2011 at 4:22 pm

      I love the episode of Family Guy where Charlotte had Tourette’s and wrote WHORE in her web for everyone to see.

      Slice is under contract with SR.

    • June 29, 2011 at 4:29 pm
