aoe tanking the Phoenix-Hawk Hatchlings

Postby Brute » Tue Oct 02, 2007 8:49 am

Ok so I'm having major issues doing this...

They silence, so I can't cast as often as I'd like.

They knock back, so until I get myself situated in a corner (which can take a while because of repeated knockbacks) I can't keep them still or keep them in my consecrate.

There's a bunch of them, so I can't just taunt them all off the warrior at once and then go hide in a corner on the pull... I was told I needed to pull and the warriors could taunt the falconers off of me, which seemed like a good idea until the shield only hit 3 and healers drew agro almost right off the bat.

Its also hard to taunt because i'm in a corner and can't really see the raid very well.

If anyone has experience doing this or would just like to say "L2Play nub" or anything else, please feel free.

Hang around in the corner and have the pull initiated by having a hunter misdirect to you. You will get the initiation aggro and also aggro from the targets that were hit. Time your consecration right and judge the distance and how much time you have left before they hit you and then smash spam consecration and holy shield.

You will be able to tank them easily if you are in that corner.

The initiated aggro gives you the first tick on consec on every single mob... enough to hold it over any heals.

We have our warrior mt shoot the humanoids and I throw a Consc. down in the doorway to the hallway.

He runs back to the group, beating on his humanoids and as the hatchlings run through the Consc they aggro onto me. I stand in the corner against the wall and have a healer dispel me with another healer farther back dispelling him. I consc/holy shield mash with Ret aura up. Then we aoe them down.

I tab around and make sure they're all on me. Any strays I taunt.


It took me a few times before I got it down and stopped killing over-zealous warlocks :-P

Awesome, thanks. That's a great idea and I should've thought of it. I should have no issues tomorrow with that (at least not that I can think of).

Did it for the first time last week when we decided to go after Void Reaver since we didn't have a good group for Vashj. Like Kay, I threw down a consecrate in the doorway to Al'ar's room when the pull happened and hit holy shield as I ducked into the corner next to it. The hawks piled onto me like clockwork and I just spammed my HS and consecrate keys. They died without issue to seed/flamestrike/blizzard spam, and there was much rejoicing.

I didn't have issues holding aggro on them, but I was wearing my threat gear (4/5 T4 and the T5 legs, among others) and had nearly 500 spell damage. The healers didn't seem to have any difficulty keeping me up. For the silences, I had a priest whose only duty on those pulls was spamming dispel on me.

I stand in the first dorway (not into Al'ar's room but the one to the hall before that). The raid is behind me and a hunter MD's the humanoids to a warrior who is also behind me.

I drop a concecrate in the doorway, back up and to the right agianst the wall. All healers are on the opposite side to avoid the silence. Spam concecrate, HS and be spam cleansed to avoid the silence.

We do it the same way, works like a charm unless the healers suddenly decide to go afk before the pull :evil:

...but going to the left is better than the right! :P

I usually stand in Al'Ar room doorway, wait for hunter to MD pull the belf to other tank, pop a consecration and run to the corner. I have a paladin or priest chaindispelling me tho.
Redoubt and Blessing of Sanctuary greatly help there.

I'll put on a shield with a spike for this. Also, a slow trap in front of the doorway will keep them in my initial consecration a little longer for an extra tick of damage as they come through. Other then that, pretty much as above.

Heh, I do this a little differently. I throw down consecration at the doorway like most, but then I let them kick me down the hall into the previous room. I back into a corner while the raid kills the two humanoids, then they open up on the birds. We've just had far too many pulls where someone decided they would stand too close to the door and get punted out into Al'ars room, subsequently pulling the other pack.

I actually just pull the whole thing. Stand out far enough into Al'ars room and prox the whole pack. Lay down a concecrate at the door and then make sure my back is turned towards the corner of the hall way. As the pack comes through they kick me back into the corner, the warriors peel off the two mobs and the raid kills the two guys while I aoe in the back for a while. Works perfectly every time.

I drop a concentrate on the floor a few seconds before they enter, then I run around the corner and get my back to the wall. Then I spam the Concentrate and Holy Shield buttons just hoping to get one of them in during a break in the silences.

Like Alienor, but I make sure one Pala is cleansing my silence alot. Raid kills my current target and there is no way noone can get aggro away from me. :)
