[25N/H] Does Righteous Defense work on Faction Champs?

Postby Nardic » Wed Oct 14, 2009 9:02 pm

just like the title says, I'm curious, so i can justify to my guild staying prot for this encounter if it's viable. I had someone tell me that a tanks "challenge" will work, but not his taunt. Which would mean that RD should work?

RD and HoR do not work.

I personally stay prot for this fight (as my 2ndary spec is also prot), but I know a lot of people switch to proly or ret for this fight.

That doesn't even make sense.

Taunts only work on pets in heroic mode.

And RD is a taunt, not a "challenge" as you put it.

erhm... maybe something is wrong ... but my hor and rd DOES work on FAction champion.
I open the encounter with HoR on 1 of the malee, and it CLEARLY takes aggro on me, then i stun and then i JoJ. Dimishing returns apply, but they works...
Furthermore, i will post the result of applying Hor... it deals damage as intended.

Both 10 & 25 man normal modes allow usage of every form of taunt which puts their attention on you for the duration of the taunt, after expiring they return to their "normal" aggro table.

In both 10 & 25 man heroic modes all npc's besides the pets are immune to all forms of taunt.

It takes them a couple of seconds to fixate on someone. We start with a bear running in, and they'll nuke him for a few seconds before anything exciting happens. I usually throw Hysteria at one of our melee 2 seconds into the pull, and that alone generates enough threat that I get 2-3 champs on me right away.

See if you can get RD to work mid-fight on a champ that has just changed target, just to remove the random element. It most likely won't work, but let us know if it does :)

Again, the fixate effect from taunting will work on every mob in the normal mode version of the fight. On heroic mode, it will only work on pets.

And the fixate is the only part of the taunt that can be relied upon in normal mode.
