Guild First: Maiden of Virtue

We were: Gongniu (Warrior MT), Amellea (Druid OT), Tatia (Paladin MH), Zynnia (Priest OTH), Ireena (Shadow Priest), Fynriss (BM Hunter), Sibiy (BM Hunter), Krullwyn (BM Hunter), Raouen (MM Hunter), and Daegothh (Mage). We made quick work of the Maiden. I think it just took us a couple of attempts to figure out what she was doing. Unfortunately she dropped clothie DPS armor and a shaman totem.

We moved onto the Opera. We’re bad bad raiders.. only a few of us had skimmed the descriptions of the events so we were unprepared. The hunters were -sure- we would get the Big Bad Wolf.. so we read the description of that event to the group. Unfortunately we got Oz instead. I was the only one who seemed to remember reading about Oz.. and even that was very vague. It was chaos.. death followed.

On our way back in I auto-followed on one of the hunters and ALT-TAB’d out to read the event description from WowWiki to the group. The rest of the attempts each got a little bit better. I think we managed to down Dorothie once but didn’t get much further than that.

Learnings:
– All the mobs seem to be immune to polymorph and ice traps.
– Roar and Tito are Beasts. Scare Beast works on Roar (as long as all the hunters put it back on their bars). They’re both immune to Hibernate.
– Strawman gets a 3 sec stun from fire spells. The mage spammed Scorch (Rank 1) on him and was able to pretty much immobilize him (until the mage was eaten by Tito).
– After about a minute TinHead rusts up and is uber-easy for the tank to kite.

Thoughts:
Main tank needs to pickup and keep good aggro on TinHead.
I think we need to have one of the hunters target and get good aggro on Roar.. that way he’ll run back to that hunter everytime. Then the hunter can “Scare Beast” and keep him controlled.Two of the hunters will then need to trade off “Scare Beast”s. It has a 20 second duration and a 30 second cooldown. Two hunters ought to be able to keep Roar constantly feared.
After he pops up, we need the off-tank to pick up Tito.
The mage needs to keep spamming Scorch on Strawman.. but occasionally the main tank needs to taunt him.
Burn down Dorothie first. Random water bolts need to be stopped.

Hopefully next time we’ll get it.

  • The only person that needs to worry about Strawman is the mage. He can either Scorch or Fireball or both. As long as he’s chain-casting those spells, it will keep him stunned. In my runs, whichever mage is “tanking” him, is usually the one to deal about 100% of the damage to him. Let the tanks worry about the rest of the chaos that is going on.

  • Gratz on puching Maiden in the face!

    What “Boss Mods” are you using for addon. I know you did a post back i think you list it but i can’t remember which one it was. Are you using Deadly Boss Mods or BigWigs? I recently downloaded both of those.

    I’m using BigWigs. I haven’t tried out DBM.. so I really don’t know what else it offers.

    Usually when we get to a new boss I’m so geeked about it I just end up focusing on the healing buttons and completely miss the messages from the boss mod. I’m trying to get better ;)
