How Fast Does Sath Run?

Postby Lowgrus » Thu Feb 05, 2009 6:13 pm

Probably just a silly idea but hell we're paladins and are a master of the nifty little tricks. Prob could work better for 25 man, not that its really hard, but 10 man possibly to not sure. Let me know why this wouldn't work by all means so I can be like oh wow I am stupid.

-Pali tank pulls
-Dps druid in bear form gets second threat by quite a bit
-Druid runs far opposite side of room

- I bubble
- Sarth goes running in complete opposite side of room giving X amount of time to just kill the drakes without worrying about healing on tank/ or tank dieing or taking any damage.
- I dont reseal or do anything other than sit there and look pretty until druid is like OMG this mofo is going to eat me
- I reseal and be ready to posisiton him as he comes back. Hopefully shadron down at least by this point?

Is this incredibly impossible or would like this be like wow your an idiot worthy? More viable option in 25 man man, but could signifigantly make 10 man alot easier. Especially from a healing perspective.

Well, he's a fat ass so he runs pretty slow. I'm not sure it would gain you anything though. Your healers arent going to add significant amount of dps so would basically just be standing around waiting for someone to take damage. Also I am not certain but I think if sarth is going to breath and no one is tanking he will just breath the closest person which could be bad.

Try it and let us know what happens lol.

I doubt you can dps down a few drakes in 5-10 seconds ;p

It'd be really cool if he breathed on the raid while running to the bear.

Well I think it would be more than 5-10 seconds. You'd just have to get shadron down as that's when the raid starts to take significant damage.

Not sure if he'd breath the whole raid. As a matter of fact I think i've seen him like when someone fucks up in the beginning and we're running to the enterance to save our repair bills. Like he'll keep person highest on aggro targeted and cast flame breath and it has a range on it i think.

Someone else test it imo.

Same run speed as a player if not higher.

When we wipe i generally run to the exit, if i can't bubble even with PoJ he still keeps in my melee range.

You're suggesting having a tail swiping, 75k breathing dragon running across the raid, in the middle of sarth3d :O? And making this process actually take longer than 5 seconds? And then having him turn around and go back a bit later?

Assuming you manage to do this at a time when it's actually useful to have healing suddenly switch to a different tank but is not a flamewall, how do you make it take longer than 5seconds? Shadron takes maybe a minute and a half to kill at best? more realistically two? I don't think there are any raid bosses that move that would take more than 15s to get across that tiny island, and sartharion judging by our last WWS takes around 3 seconds to move from pull position to the corner closest to the entrance.

Do you mean like off that little island? Like all the way up to where the drakes normally sit? If so, NO it doesnt work, he pyros anyone not on the main island in the middle basically.

On that kiting strategy I don't think that in the heat of battle you would find a positioning where your raid is not in danger of being insta-gibbed by a random breath.

Btw he also pyrobuffets everyone after ~15 mins. into the fight regardless of position. don't ask, just noticed yesterday.

Aah - so you can't tank and kill the drakes off the island either then eh.

even if you could get enough time to kill the drakes by kiting, wouldn't ge aggro a healer after a couple of seconds?
