Having trouble with Curator

Postby Kanpachi » Sat Mar 22, 2008 8:46 pm

I recently went into Kara with my guild as a new tank. I tanked Attumen and Moroes without much trouble, however I could not stay alive during the Curator encounter. I can keep aggro fine, but I just can't seem to stay up for the fight. I've been working on getting gear, and I'm pretty sure my gear is close to top-notch for pre-kara, but can someone make some suggestions on what I need to do? My armory page is in my signature.

You're crittable, you're crushable, and you have really low hp.


That, and read the stickies.

The ones in the gear forum. Like really read them. Well.

i'd suggest pimping out all your gear with the best gems (12 stam, 8 Defense, etc) and getting stam chants on your shield, boots, bracers. it will be expensive but its really worth the investment. also get as many glyphs as you can (head one from KoT rep, aldor/scryer shoulder one)

also try to get the Devilshark cape from reg SV, or if u cant get that to drop, get the one from BM or even the crafted BoE one (forget what its called).

libram of repentance from badges is a must, you could be using it until BT.

finally, invest in some crafted epics, such as:
Bracers of the Green Fortress
Oathkeeper's Helm
Boots of the Protector

Sorry but I am gonna be a bit harsh. Seeing tanks whitout a single enchant on any piece of gear is just about the worst thing I can see. Your gear is not bad, but not enchanting it IS BAD imo. Sure it costs but if you take tanking seriously then you should at least invest some resourses into it. Its a good chunk of stats you are missing by not doing so.

Ya, your gear isn't even really good enough to do heroics. Barely good enough for normal 5-mans. The fact that you lived through Attumen and Moroes is really a testament to your healers.

You're revered with KoT. Get your head enchant.
Run more Steamvaults for the Devilshark Cape and CE revered neck. Use the crafted cloak for now.
Put, at the very least, a +10 stam Armor kit on your BP
Enchant your bracers
Enchant your Gavel and Shield
+10 stam to your gloves, and remove that awful +6 str gem.
Clefthide Leg armor for your legs
+10 stam armor kit for your boots
There's lots of good quest trinkets you can get.

That's probably 1300+ more HP, and WAY more importantly, you'll be uncritable. Being under 490 def is absolutely inexcusable, and you'll take way more damage. As stated before, your first badge purchase should be the Libram.

You really need to run more 5-mans to get your gear up to snuff. Read the stickies (especially the failsafe uncrushability guide, that's awesome.) Good luck!

Simply, Curator is supposed to be a gear check before you move on.

Curator is no gear check for tanks. Tanking Curator is far easier than tanking Netherspite, Prince or Illhoof.

Yes... but you must kill Curator before you can kill those bosses. Thus, if you cannot tank Curator you will not be able to kill the other bosses, mainly because you can't get to them. :P

So where's the check to your gear there? It's simply a non optional boss like moroes.

He means it's a gear check for the DPS.

More specifically, it's a test to make sure that the DPS is wearing at least quest blues, knows how to properly output damage, and can target flares.

If you can tell us what was going wrong (multiple flares up, etc.), we can certainly offer suggestions. If you were dying after the fight had gone on for a while, it's likely the healers just ran out of gas.

Ya curator is really really easy for the tank its more about the rest of the raid being up to the task.

As was said, it's mainly a DPS check. If your DPS cannot kill the flares quick enough you won't succeed. Granted, it's not really that "hard" but it does ensure your DPS isn't loaded up in greens.

You are also not crittable or crushable and your gear has proper gems and enchants...

I didn't have any issues tanking Curator at all on Saturday on my paladin's first run through Kara. Hell of a lot easier than Nightbane. The pants and belt my toon is wearing in Armory are new since then. However, I was not crittable or crushable and also had ridiculous flare dps (Curator was at 50% before the evocate). The rest of my gear is either quest or 5-man gear, with the badge libram.

Curator is a DPS gear check and a little bit of a healing gear check. It is not generally a tanking gear check.

Curator is pretty much an overall raid check, if 1 part is lacking, everyone fails.

Not having enchants or not gemming properly is no excuse, if you want to tank, put the effort in basically.
