  • Baron Geddon - Tweak

    I'd like to propose a "tweak" to the Baron Gehennas strategy we "almost" won with.

    The MT does not have time to run away from the fire pulses. Those do HUGE (2,000-2,500) damage for each pulse. FR will mitigate that by 30-50%, but fire resist potions will disappear in one or two pulses. Trying to run out, and then back before he moves (thus screwing up EVERYONE's positioning) is not practical.

    What WOULD help is for the priests to be on a bubble rotation for the MT. Each time the pulses are starting, priest A would bubble the MT, then priest B, etc. Even though one bubble would not last long (maybe only one pulse), a quick rotation (2-3 sec apart) would be huge! Rotating the responsibility would avoid the cooldown issue. The damage absorption from the bubble would greatly reduce the fire damage result and lighten the healing load.

    I think this is worth a try.

    Definitely sounds like a good idea. Also if and when Gehennas comes towards the main raid and one of the Tanks go to pick him up the raid needs to do a few things

    1: Hit Esc and stop doing everything until damage in is called

    2: Do NOT move away, if you do #1 then the Tank will get Gehennas away in enough time that you won't have to worry about taking damage.

    3: Shift heals to the new tank until MT has aggro again, if you do #2 then you will have no problems with being out of range.

      Don't you get "weakened spirit" from priest bubbles. Can't take one for 30seconds. 15seconds if it's fully improved?

            Heck, I'm such a noob, THINK it's Geddon but I had Gehennas in my head. He's next after Garr...big fire pulses AOE for monster damage.

              The MT can avoid some of the pulses by side stepping.

              Running back takes too long and then pulls Geddon to the group when he unroots.

              However sidestepping is faster and you can avoid many of the ticks.

              Also, because of weakened soul you can only be shielded once every 30 seconds (edit: is it 15 seconds now?)

              Rogues/dps warriors need to be stepping out of the pulsing, the main tank can sidestep out, then back in. Healing should only be focused on the MT during this fight, no one else should be taking damage.

              Geddon has a slow aggro build. It needs to be MT only until 97% and wands/autoshot only until 85% at most. After that you can unload your damage.
