Thats good to hear, saves me trying on my next run tomorrow.

But you can bubble immediately after the sheep ends and before the Pyro reaches you so that you take no dmg from it and can cast a heal out to someone that may not be fully topped off.

Btw, what's with all the Kara bugs lately? Last night after winning the Chess event there was no loot or badges in the chest... ugh.

That same thing happened to us. The shades were about a bajillion yards away, and ALL OF THEM, including the ones right before the ethereals came. we were all like "WTF who pulled" and immediately blamed the mage, and then rofled for like 5 mins

So on last week's run my SoB backlash broke myself from being sheeped. So instead of dispelling the other's sheep I just continued dps, which actually stopped him from drinking. I think Aran potted as his mana had a sudden 10% jump and he then casts his mass AoE Pyroblast/Fireball early. 30 secs later Aran decided to sheep us all again for another drinking session.

I think next time i do Aran I'll bubble out of his sheep on purpose to disrupt his drinking and see if the same happens again.

Shaman + searing totem = no drinkin' for Aran. We use this a lot, mainly because it's funny. Snake trap will disrupt him, too (and they count as spell targets, so the hunters use them all fight long. Room full of snakes!)

In a 3-4 hour clear, your raid will likely have enough DPS to kill Aran before he can drink anyway, even if you interrupt nothing.
better to tank in hell than DPS in heaven

The day I hit 70 I offtanked a kara pug for a guild that could start SSC if they felt like it, I ended up judging wisdom and offhealing most the of the raid due to the nicely geared prot pally. During chess I was stuck with moving grunts out of the way, 2nd time i changed peices i fell through the floor and landed in Curator's hall; had a big lolfest about that. Of course the nice boots dropped and they couldnt ML them to me, took 5 days for a GM to send em over. I've ran kara dozens of times on my lock and rogue and have never seen that.

There is a partial answer below he is untankable dont even try pallys usually put on healing gear warriors go into dps dual weild mode. You shouldn't have anything resembling a normal tank as really there is no point your 150dps of your tank is a waste.

You need melee to stop him going after the clothies if you spell lock him and on melee he hits for like 500-1K or something the healers just heal who he targets they should know that.

This is the one fight everyone gets to go max dps :)

As a pally in healing gear I usually focus on keeping the mage(s) alive because they usually have the least HP and 1 error into a blizzard or 3 targets from Aran in a row and they will die.

Edit: I should also say very very infrequently we have had him for some reason move to melee a caster you or the other tank can taunt him while he is in melee frame of mind even if you are in your healing gear he will hit you for peanuts.

My favorite recent kara bug was when my pawn in chess died, I was exited into midair in Curator's room (instead of the platform in the chess room). Fell to the ground and had to run all the way back....

Weird bugs in Kara lately.

Opera error

Postby Pillar » Mon Apr 21, 2008 2:04 pm

i had the chess/curator bug too. i missed out on 2 badges and a healing piece i couldve used for OH.

but recently, we were doing Opera. it was Oz. we lost 3 dps due to them not doing what was told. thought it would be a wipe- had MT, OT, 2 dps, and 2 healers.

i had the lion and toto as the OT. we killed the strawman, the lion, killed the tin man, and as i said to NOT focus on tito (at this point he had about 10-15% left due to being in consecrate and HS damage for a LONG fight), the 2 dps take him down in 2 seconds. we all look at dorothy and wait for the enrage... and it never happens. we proceed to kill her and kill the crone, shocked that we were still alive, and sitting there thinking it was one massively long fight...

You probably won't get any loot replaced, but each person who was in the raid can open a ticket and get the badges. It takes about 4-6 days. I was able to get mine when I got teleported to mid-air in Curator's room during the Chess event and then was locked out of the room and not able to get badges.

When loot actually drops that you're not able to get, you can also petition to get that transferred. The person who received the item due to the bug needs to open the ticket to make the request. I got an item in a raid I shouldn't have and opened a ticket - the item was later transferred to the proper person. I also got a tanking ring for my paladin that a warlock accidentally got in a regular instance when he misread it. He opened the ticket and I received it in the mail a few days later from Blizzard.
