Rotface ooze spawn rate bug??

Postby Tankforyou » Sat May 15, 2010 8:08 am

Hello,

My guild took out Rotface-25 two weeks in a row when we merged with a 10 man guild and started da 25s. Our dps increasingly goes up and based on our Festergut-25 kill we were our highest yet this week (153,000 dps on Festergut-25)

We get to Rotface and it owned us. The slimes were coming out and merging at a silly fast rate. On one attempt we had a Big Ooze get to 5 and explode and then 4 seconds later another 5 stack went boom. They JUST after that there were 3 small oozes around. So this means we had 13 small oozes either merged or unmerged about 3-4 minutes into the fight. We never even got close to 6 minutes on the fight.

We check the Blizzards known bug forum and found nothing. It was NOT set to hard mode as none of us have gotten there

Any thoughts?
-Regards
Tankforyou

Do you have a log you can link to?

Also, consider the issue could be people randomly cleansing the debuff into little oozes. Any way you do this fight, the cleansing needs to be controlled.

Look for shammie totems here as a great culprit.

Even though we have been successful on this fight a few times, I may try the method to get the achievemnet next time. You should probably consider it as you have the DPS for it.

That's actually got a much simpler reason most likely. If a big ooze is casting it's explosion, and another little ooze merges with it while it's doing so, it's explosion cast time will reset and you'll get a second explosion warning. There'll only be a single explosion, but you'll get warnings as if there were two. That only needs 2 little oozes at once when the big ooze is at 4 stacks, and is because of that actually likely to happen once Rotface starts using his mutating infection ability at his fastest speed, which he's definitely doing at 4 minutes in.

Thanks Chicken....
That actually explains alot.
We went back in and killed it the next night. Seems we got a case of the overconfident....

Appreciate your help

Yeah. Except it's another layer of difficulty to deal with in Heroic. Just kite the big ooze.
