Last night I had the opportunity to run Uld-25 on my Warlock, Lilac, with our shiny new guild Alliance**. We went into an already-started Uld-25 and made a bunch of attempts on Razorscale. I had to leave early (recorded TNB Ep 47 with Honor of Honor’s Code)(it should be available for download on Tue/Wed) but even before I left we were having problems.
Questions (for all of you who know): In Uld-25 Razorscale, do you have your tanks pull all the adds together so you can AOE one big pack down.. or do you tank them in 2-3 separate groups?
When Razorscale lands, do you have your tanks pull the adds to under Razorscale so AOE can continue and include the adds and Razorscale?
Is there some reason you shouldn’t?
I believe that as long as you pull the very tall Sentinal guys out.. and single-target them down.. that your best bet (as long as healing can keep up) would be to pull all the rest of the adds into one big mosh pit of baddies for AOEing AND I think that having that mosh pit right under Razorscale would mean that when Razorscale is down your DPS can AOE the add packs down AND hit Razorscale at the same time.
BUT I wasn’t running the raid.. so my opinion isn’t all that important. In fact since it seemed like someone from the other guild was running the raid I kind totally kept my opinion to myself.***
I again observed a Doomguard just kind of standing around in the blue flame clouds. I reminded the warlock who summoned the Doomguard that the pet needed to be on passive and he said it -was- on Passive.. so not sure what was going on there. Since I was rocking the Destro build I skipped summoning my Doomguard. The Imp didn’t seem to have that same problem.
For last night I tried out my Deep Destruction build (0/13/58) and used Rain of Fire for my AOE. At the end of the night I think I came out as #1 or #2 warlock in the run. That said, warlocks were -WAY- behind rogues and Deathknights. It’s not a bad spec.. but my fingers definately don’t remember what to do with it. Everytime I have to remind myself which button to push next. I think in the end I came in at ~2.5k dps.. which is higher than the 1.9k from last week’s Uld-10.. but much lower than where I want to be.
At the very least I hope the other casters and healers got good use out of the Replenishment I was dishing.
**We have setup a guild alliance with the Guild Art of War. They’re an “East Coast” guild.. I’m a West Coast gal. Alot of the runs we’re setting up start -WAY- before I get home. We’ll see how that works out.
***It’s weird to run with another established group. They don’t know me.. I don’t get their jokes.. and I keep feeling like they think I’m that Country Bumpkin Cousin their parents foisted off on them for a trip to the movies. I don’t love them.. and I’m not finding their quirks “endearing”. Maybe I’m just crochety in my old age.
