Hadronox woes...

Postby Brutalicus » Wed Dec 03, 2008 3:33 pm

Longtime reader, first time poster here....
I was in this instance with a pretty stacked group last night, had no problem besting the initial timed pulls and the first boss, but we got to Hadronox and killed the mobs before him and waited for him to web the doors...
and waited...
and waited...
And he didn't web them. Has anyone else encountered a similar bug?

Did this instance last night.

Me
Disc Priest
S Priest
Ret Pally
Warlock

Everything was easy until the last boss. Our group was all blue geared except me. I have a mix of blue/badge/Naxx10/Naxx25 gear. The poison was what killed us over and over. Finally I told the ret pally that when the venomspitters show up, he stops DPS and does nothing but cleanse poison. Even then we barely downed the boss because our DPS was low. One thing I was wondering after the fight...we had two priests...can the venomspitters be shackled???

To be fair, you should be helping to cleanse the poison too.

The venomancers are fully CC-able by anti-undead measures. Forget shackle really, just make sure they are focused on and preferably stun-locked to death as soon as they reach the platform.

Go figure, I've never bothered avoiding Pound. Instead I just tell the wife when it's casting so she has a big heal ready to land just after Pound does. Even sucking up Pound, Anub Arak's melee damage output doesn't seem like a problem. The hardest part of the encounter is the third wave of additional MOBS.

Maybe next time I'll actually avoid Pound to see if doing so actually helps. I suppose it may help if I didn't have my healer sitting next to me, and if she didn't have such excellent mana regeneration.

I must be a good tank then I find this really easy I think it was my 3rd heroic I placed my foot in. The only problem I have is on the last boss and his pound. Ive run everywhere it always hits me. So now I just stand in place and pop a CD or 2 lol

I'm terrible at the whole "avoid pound" thing...

I tend to get hit by it at least once a fight... honestly - for the first 3 or so runs I didn't even know you could avoid... still haven't had problems with this instance...

only time I had a problem was when I had a priest healer in FULL s3/s4 gear... including offset pieces...

he had like 12-13k mana... and 0 regen, basically told him his gear was terrible for PVE at 70... why would it be good at 80?

other than that... have had 0 problems with this boss... none at all :)

The pound is extremely easy to avoid. Get the TJH addon, and a raid warning when he does it. When he does just run straight through him, and you are safe. When he has pounded, he will turn around, so then you can just position him again.

I really enjoy this fight though, it one of the better 5-man boss fights IMO

FINALLY got the last boss down after 5 wipes in a row.
What a royal a$$hat.

First 5 wipes it was:
Pallytank, Hunter, 2 mages & Pally healer.

That was 5 wipes in a row. Just couldn't keep the heals up.

Pally left, we got a disc priest.
Got it first go.

And no, the priest wasnt better geared, the reverse. pally had 21k mana buffed, priest 16k.

AoE heals ftw.

Also be careful on not turning ama'barak around. Just run through. Due to lag players' location are not what you see on screen. Especially melee dps staying behind but even ranged can be caught. At least ask everybody to spread out and not trying to AOE bugs during Pound.

Depending on the group makeup this fight can be easy or pretty hard. Its usually the poison stacks that cause my wipes on him. The pally healer usually cleanses and we win. The holy priest has a very hard time if you dont have any other pallys....tanking and cleansing can be too hard for mana and holding onto all targets.

Little surprised you did better with a priest than a healadin.

to answer the question posted a while ago lol...yes they can be shackled...they are undead. but its not worth it really (unless you can get tards to not hit them when they are being shackled). if you have a ret pally you can both hammer of justice/holy wrath to stun them...you can also fear them. (turn evil)

i will stun one, fear the other and hope that someone else can pick up the slack with stunning/cleansing...venomancers are definitely the challenge of the encounter and should be a priority.

I heard that when the skirmishers before the 1st boss do their focus target thing, it is always on the player farthest from them. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

It's not hard proof, but I can say with 98% certainty that our Hunter was further away from the skirmisher than our Priest was when he got fixated.

I was of course, busy trying to not die to that stupid enrage and a bad avoidance streak, so, yeah.

Skirmisher aggroed a rogue while we had both a healer and a mage at max range, rogue was at my side.

Their fixate is random.
