Re: LF some help with Interrupts. :<

I'm not sure what the interrupt issue is then. You should have the ret on one side, and the feral on the other (and if it is one of those whiny hobag ferals who won't spec into 10s skull bash 'because it's a dps loss' then they should be sat, or yelled at until they do. god forbid they have to inter...

Re: LF some help with Interrupts. :<

Pet family doesn't matter much. Initiates usually die with time to spare if your raid's dps is up to par. You could, say, dismiss your interrupt pet before the tornadoes spawn and pop out your dps pet for the burn phases, but that sounds like a lot of effort for minimal gain, especially if your tank...

Re: Regarding people having trouble on Solix

I think my only advice to people trying to tame Solix would be to never let him get LOSed around a corner... if daze drops while you can't shoot him BAM he's in your face like a creepycrawly facehugger. and learning to mouse-turn, like others have said. a properly executed jumpshot is usually accomp...

Re: Hotfix - A Nicer Molten Front

Sadly the distracting shot/taunt thing doesn't help much against the guys you don't have the liberty of dpsing first (like Kirix). Spent about 15 minutes helping a guildmate tame Kirix, only to have it interrupted by griefing alliance railing into it and running away. Bad enough there was a rogue sa...

Re: Best strat for Skarr/Karkin ?

Prismatic Elixirs work great for Kirix if you want to tame in a hurry/can't be arsed to rock jump and evade bug it. You'll live at least another tick of his aura, which is should be enough to finish the tame with a little haste (I usually run around with 8-10%) or some pvp gear if you roll with that.

Re: Green firespider question

When they're spawned, they pat around the north half of Widow's Clutch (the spider part of it, not where the druids are).

Those broodlings and the ones that spawn from the dead druid (which is only near the Forlorn Spire anyhow) are different GUIDs, so you can tell them apart.

Re: Skarr and Karkin Taming Challenges

So after testing things out on Karkin a bit, I have concluded these things. 1) He will cast Fieroclast Barrage in response to any Tame Beast cast, unless he is prevented from casting when you initiate your cast. Silence and Interrupt works to this effect, and I assume if you use a pet for a Stun it ...

Re: Whats new in 4.2, Your list of it all *11:35pm 6/11/11*

The spawnpoint for Solix actually appears on the north side of the ramp leading to Deth. I couldn't park my pet at his spawnpoint because he'd despawn by the time I got outside, but roughly 10y north of the gray dot is where Solix spawns according to the outside map. http://i154.photobucket.com/albu...

Re: New and Improved Skarr

He still spawns in the NE spot, it's kind of isolated. Also, if you use the slipstream to jump to the island, you get an incredible 2 minute buff that increases your attack speed and haste by 100%, or lets you jump once for a nice height. You can abuse this buff to run down some of those stepping st...

Re: Hey Wain/Noah, how about some hunter Feats of Strength?.

Paladins and Warlocks actually have their own FoSs for their mount quests (before they got taken out), so a class-specific FoS would not be without precedent.

I don't see them putting them in for pets, but for Rhokdelar and Benediction... yeah, I could see it.
