Black and Blue – ouch ouch ouch!
First time into the raid known as Blackwing Descent…I would say not the smoothest of runs but still fun and educational.
The 1st 2 bosses are going to be:
Magmaw (to the left) and Omnitron Def. System. (to the right)
Magmaw, as many others have noted is a heavy raid damage fight. However, the real issue is the managing of the spot points and the adds that spawn. We put some attempts in, but the adds in the end was the mechanic that got us in the end.
The Def System, I have to say is a lot more fun. Or at least a very colorful fight. Even more mechanics to keep you on your feet. Observations to note – dont DPS that shield down to far, so the tank with that add does not inadvertantly blow it up lol. Run away from slimes, pull them out of their buff zones, place them in debuff zones. I am not too worried about this fight, the Magmaw fight has me more worried.
Anyone have any hint/tricks for the adds in Magmaw’s fight? And is there a proper cooldown order for the tank to handle mangle easier?
Our setup was:
1 prot pally
1 ret pally
1 fury war
1 aff lock (can’t stop the dots!)
x2 Survival Hunters
1 resto druid
1 resto shaman
1 Holy priest (me)
For all the Magmaw fights – I do admit I got a little trigger happy with the PoH but when he was finally on the ground and chained, I was not gasping for mana. Where we had a mana issue was with our boomchicken at times, and when I would panic and spam ><)
We had two gathering points for the ranged and the healers, when he would cast flame pillar we would move to other spot, hunters were placing frost traps in between the two gathering points. Boomchicken would typhoon at the right moment.
I don't think it was the healing as, the dmg he causes is very healable, and once we get used to the fight I bet could even 2 heal this. DPS appears ok? But I am not 100% sure on that.
