Deathbringer's Will and boss mechanics

Postby fudomyou » Wed May 05, 2010 10:52 am

A while ago, there were bugs about the Deathbringer's Will transformations, which would prevent Gunship jumping and Blood Queen biting. I think they got rid of the Gunship bugs with Deathbringer's Will, but what about Blood Queen? We've been having issues getting our bites off lately, of the "I'm spamming 1 and nothing's coming out" variety, so is it best to force our DPS to take off the trinket for the fight, and/or make a macro that cancels DBW's transformations?

Thanks in advance.

I'd be interested in this as well. We had the same problem happen last night but we weren't sure what had happened and just assumed a normal bug. I checked her armory, and sure enough, she has Deathbringer's Will.

I've never had a problem biting with the proc up on my feral druid. But, hey, it's blizzard, that could be related to some kind of "form within a form" bug that corrects the DBW shapeshift bug. For all I know, they'll fix it for everyone else, and cats will have to shift out of form to bite.

Our rogue was standing right in front of his bite target last night and couldn't bite, despite mashing the bite button. He, too, has Deathbringer's Will.

I think it's safe to assume that people shape-shifted by DBW are unable to bite.

Tell them to make a macro to cancelaura the buffs (and not put this macro on a bar hidden when they need to bite someone).

I was under the impression the bloodqueen issue was long fixed (gunhship one definitely is).

Personally, I don't think I've had a proc up while biting because of the way the timers work out.

Stal has it ... But I've had the same bug, with neither of my trinkets proccing a transformation ... It might be like your bar problem with Putput.

Just throwing my 2c out there.

AFAIK, there's several things that make bits not work. Shapeshift(anything, forms, Noggenfoggers, DBW), and the fact there's apparently a deadzone in which you can't bite.
