Netherspite

Postby brockb1 » Wed Sep 05, 2007 3:17 pm

I am having trouble off tanking netherspite, specifically after he phazes back in and before the beams activate he is running at a caster and wtf pwning them. My main tank thinks it is because my aggro is much lower than his causing him to aggro someone else, I think if that was the case netherspite would just aggro the highest threat, not a lock who is 4th or 5th. I read that after the phaze out netherspite clears all aggro, dont know if this is acurate or not. Anyone have any ideas?

All DPS should be stopped until a tank picks him up, and they shouldn’t go full bore till the beams start. They shouldn’t even be near him, he has a normal threat list until the beams show back up. This has nothing to do with your threat; just a mechanic of the fight.

BTW he is a demon or ghot, but pretty sure he is a demon, you can use Exorcism on him :)

It's really easy to pick him up before anyone aggro's him. Just be the first to run back in after the banish phase and throw ur shield or exorcism (he's a ghost btw :)).

If you have a mod that tells you when the phases end, it makes life a little easier.

Netherspite is a demon for the record. Altho idk why a dead dragon is supposed to be a demon :?

So that paladins would have an easier time tanking him, of course.

Why not have him pick him up at the start of each portal phase then?

A few seconds before he unbanishes himself, i run in and drop a consecrate, then have dps stop until the beams start. Unless i'm on the red beam, i stand in between 2 beams and when they fire up i tend to burn through all my mana then top myself off from a few seconds of green.

I've no idea if he actually clears aggro or not, it seems likely, but it's probably jumping onto a lock because they throw a dot on and it's the first thing that ticks, tell them to stop it and use consecrate.

For some reason I forget why, we have a tank and healer stay behind during each banish phase, the tank is the one picking him up next, makes things alot easier.

Does it really matter if he's a Demon or Undead? Exorcism will work either way. :lol:
