Getting tea-bagged by a blind dragon…..


*cough* Anyways…1st real night of putting attempts against the Draconic Ray Charles of Azeroth.

15 attempts in all, with the closest attempt being 13% or so. πŸ™‚ (Not bad at all!)

Overall I would say we did ok, it was the small silly mistakes which caused the kill to slip from our grasp. Unfortunately, with Atramedes, a silly mistake usually means you are dead.

Some of the blaring ones that come to mind.

In the ground phase – the gong has to be hit at the right time when he is attempting to cast Searing Flame. One second to late and its a wipe. Remember its a 2 second cast. Also when Sonic Break target gets picked all need to have better awareness about who is getting targeted. (Remember target RUN TO THE RIGHT!)

In the air phase – Don’t stop moving. Stopping = death. Need to get better to annouce when they need the gong assistance. Also if the designated gong striker dies….we need to better aware of who needs to pick it up if they go down.

Oh well, he will die next time. I am sure of it!! πŸ™‚

Why is it that the annoying dragons seem to give people issues. (Sindy I am looking at you!)

But to those who have downed him? Is it better to have more ranged for this fight. My thoughts afterwards make it seem it favors ranged in this one at time. In the air, melee cannot do much. Also from what I could tell the silly dragon would not always target the raid member with the highest sound? Is this a bug?

Also if you have not read…check up on the notes from what has been found out about 4.1. πŸ™‚

      We happily got Ray Charles down after about 6 wipes or so.. using a pretty unorthodox strat. As far as melee vs ranged goes.. we had 2 fury warriors, 1 rogue, 1 ret pala, a mage and a spriest. While i dont doubt having more ranged would be nice just go with what youv’e got.

        Hmm. similar setup to ours. only 2 ranged in our comp as well.

        Curious as to what your strat was? How was it unorthodox?

          How we did it basically calls for 2 1/2 man healing it. Dragon tanked in the middle, melee on one side ranged+ 2x healers on the other. Other healer (me as a restoshaman) on the far side just behind the melee. I was on the gongs. Ground phase, use ghost wolf to get out to the gongs for searing whatsit. Air phase, wait until someone gets targetted and just before it reaches them hit the gong, go into ghost wolf and run around the edge of the room, as the flame gets close hopefully get a holy shield for body and soul then run run run and hope that ground phase restarts before it catches you. Potential to use life grip here but chances are you’ll be pulled into a sound pulsey thingy.

          I guess it’s not thaaat unconvential with the exception that you wouldn’t normally use a healer to do the gongs as it puts you out of range of the ranged group and sometimes melee putting the onous on the other 2 healers. However i found that ghost wolf for the kiting was completely invaluable.

          Also, and i’m guessing when we go in their tonight i’ll notice it, but as far as i could see there wasn’t a cast bar before the searing whatsit. So I hit it the second it started to cast, resulting in a decent amount of raid dmg.. healable though.

          Tbh with about 5 or 10 percent health left we still had 2 gongs available so we must ahve been doign something tonight.

          Hopefulyl get Chimaeron down tonight, really wish i had an addon that allowed grid to set say a cap of 15k on everyones health… although that’d mean i wouldn’t be able to see one of the tanks properly.

            Cool thanks for outlining your strat. Very similar to ours. except we had a hunter and a ehnhancement shaman on gongs. Guess it just comes down to practice lol. Thanks again Eulogy.

            Ahh Chim the evil he is. I know with Vuhdo (which I cannot say anything bad about) automatically has the under 10% warning on it. I do think there is a way to show the lowlife warning for Grid…under the debuffs you can can config grid to make it show who has the under 10k.

              Whooot got him down after 4 attempts πŸ˜€ Thought it was pretty easy tbh.

              Thanks for your tips on it though. I ended up getting a grid status plugin that just shows the (a) debuff that dispears when a person gets healed above 10k.

              Nefarian….. here we come!

              • February 25, 2011 at 4:10 pm

                Awesome Grats Eulogy! Kick nef’s arse!

      I think you are wrong πŸ˜› pretty sure we got him under 20%, that was the attempt, you, dro, and roor were dead.

      • February 24, 2011 at 5:04 pm

        Was it really that low?


        Oh well! πŸ™‚

    Hi, long time no talk πŸ™‚

    Anyway, we found that liberal use of life grip in the air phase allowed us to only need one gong each time, thus giving us more ‘oops’ gongs throughout the fight. And it is a legit reason for you to yoink your teammates around 😑

    I don’t think more ranged really helps, not a lot of dps happens air phase anyway.

    And on the targetting, we noticed that too, it is not the highest sound person that gets it… not sure why.

    Good luck!

      SLO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Missed ya!

      >< I forgot about lifegrip. there were times I would use it and other times…I forgot lol. I will try to remember it more!.

      Aye the targeting is weird indeed.

      • February 24, 2011 at 5:57 pm

        Life grip messes me up when it is used on me.

        Don’t get me wrong, I understand why it was used, and the need for it. I just get all messed up when I am beating the flame and the next minute I am on the other side of the room running into a pile of fire.

        • February 24, 2011 at 6:22 pm

          lol indeed. I guess I shold make a macro for it as well. Warning people they are getting gripped.

            Ha, yes, our priest is very good about giving a warning in vent before he hits it, but it helps a ton, when done right =)
