Bug on Eredar Twins?

Postby Joanadark » Sun Sep 07, 2008 12:55 pm

For some reason, I frequently have problem with Lady Sacrolash continuing to attack me when confounded rather than switching to the other tank like she normally does.
Because I am stunned, this often results in me taking strings of crushing blows, as you can see from the screenshot.
Multiple paladin tanks we've used on this encounter have had a problem with the exact same thing occuring, whereas the warriors and druids never seem to have it happen, and thus have an easier job surviving.


Any thoughts?

p.s. dont comment on my ui, I just completely rebuilt it from the ground up since taking that screenshot. I'm preparing to start filming kill movies for tanking all the sunwell bosses, and naturally want to have a pro-looking and clean ui.

It's happened a couple of times to our warrior tank. Generally just confound, then hit, then switch though.

It's a common occurrence to get confunding + 2 melee hits.

That's why you need 22-23k HP to outhealth the confunding.

Depending on how many attempts we see on these gals every week, I'll see it at least once on our warrior tanks.

It happens and class has nothing to do with it. It's fairly uncommon though and you have to be really unlucky to have it happen to you more than once in an evening in my experience.

A bit off topic but you shouldn't use flask of blinding light here and certainly not hex shrunken head, threat is very easy here.

This happens due to the same reason Brutallus doesn't activate Ardent Defender. Sadly, there's really no good way around it except to maybe make her do Shadow Nova after every confound (so she never melee's right after).

this fight is farm status. The blinding Light is left over from the prior elements of sunwell.

And I wasnt using Hex Shrunken Head, it was just on my bars. I run with PvP Trinket and Commendation for this fight.

I've only ever taken one melee hit during a Confound, but we've had nights where our bear is just continually getting raped by Confound+Crush combos. Luck of the draw I guess.

Poo poo on the aggro flask IMO, moar hps!

That said, if you need threat so bad to have to go Blinding Light, it's time to spec 40/21!

eww players who zoom out a billion lightyears. =P

personal preference. I like my perspective from my character to be a little bit more.... intimate.

Its all about camera control.
