Screenie of Chro tamed in 4.0.3a PTR?

Unread post by PorrasouxRex » Fri Nov 19, 2010 8:26 pm

Would help alot to know if he'll be tameable in the update or not. Don't want to force my guild to help me into BWL or AQ40 if some of the raid bosses are un-touched.

He is tamable, dude on the ptr had it in Stormwind. Razorgore is still glitched, and you need a GM to skip the boss encounter to progress in, but it is available.

can you skip almost all the bosses to get to him or do you need a actual raid group?

You need at least three people (who know what they're doing) to get as far as Chromaggus. I've yet to see anyone manage to duo it.

I know you need atleast three people- because of the dragon boss with the eggs and all [one MC's and it's easier to have two guards] but outside of that, and since it is glitching, isn't it possible to two man it as a hunter? I mean tank pets, even non BM can handle ZG/AQ/etc, and people were able to solo Onyxia. So wouldn't it just take some micromanagement of a healer, hunter and pet?

If you don't have a mana user you might possibly be able to survive long enough to down Vaelastrasz, but I wouldn't put my money on it. Even at 80, keep in mind that this is a fight tuned for 40 people with unlimited resources and has a 45s tank killer mechanic. I've seen wipes even when 6-manning it due to the Burning Adrenaline. Also, the Essence of the Red buff isn't granting any extra focus, so hunters don't get the unlimited resources benefit. :(

At level 85, Wain's hunter and my Death Knight tank were able to duo it, but it was hard going. A lot of running about and throwing D&D over at the controller's feet. You could probably hunter pet tank it, but you'd need to be a master at micro management so you didn't inadvertantly kill the boss.

Other than that, it was pretty simple to two man the place, some stupid pulls asside.

Yeah but, is this before or after the change; and was the tank a pet or not? I mean worse comes to worse you FD in a corner and let the pet bite it to see if it can solo it, a bit of food and TLC with a rez later and the pet will love you once more/forgive the sin of letting it bite it for an experiment.

Sides if BM don't have to worry; TBW-> unload, Fervor -> unload, Steady spam, rinse and repeat.

So someone needs to go see if it's possible now, grab a healer hybrid vict- er, volunteer and head to BWL!


And Moonlost; I wasn't talking about the MC room, we were on about the rest of BWL/The red dragon after MC boss :p

My boyfriend and I 2 manned up to chromaggus on live.. his alt DK (tank, self healed with CD's), and my hunter. took us a 70g repair bill (and quite a few deaths) and an hour, but do-able without a solid healer. (ICC 25 geared obviously) was challenging yet fun, HOPING that we can keep the lockout come next week!

EDIT: forgot to mention that i did the controlling on the first boss while he just took all the adds, and when the fight was over his adds kept respawning BUT after we died and came back in they had cleared out :? died at least once on all but Ebonroc and flamegor (I think thats his name).

If you tame Chromaggus, does that count as him being killed? It would be easier to tame him if we didn't have to do BWL twice (my other friend, a hunter, will def want him).

Hehe, but they'll be fixing the fight up eventually, best to be prepared. :P

Vael would be the only other fight that could give an issue. (By the way, the speech before the Vael fight still gives me chills. Get up little red wyrm!) But again, Wain and I were able to take him down happily enough with his hunter, using a shale spider, and my DK tank. I died just a few seconds before he did. With two hunters doing awesome DPS, should be cake. And the rest of the place was no hassle at all.

The third boss posed no worries and you can skip the next few if you're willing to stick closely to walls and/or clear out some trash.

I believe it does ount as killing him. But that's okay. I thougth of a way around that. :)

Clear BWL with your hunters at the same time. Once you get to Chromaggus, have Hunter One leave and hop on another high level alt, or if you don't have one, make up a Death knight. Invite this new Death knight to the raid, kick Hunter One of the raid, then have Hunter Two tame Chromaggus. Once he's done, swap spots with Hunter One running into BWL, which should still be saved up to chromaggus, and Hunter Two hopping on an alt high enough leveled to be able to form a raid with.

When I cleared up to Chromaggus this week, Razorgore despawned during the fight, rendering us unable to progress or even to escape. We were utterly stuck. One of our guildies put in a ticket and, fortunately, GMs responded very quickly (perhaps within one or two minutes). While most tickets get stuck in line, it would seem that a certain few, like those relating to being stuck on Razorgore, get responded to and fixed very quickly.

HOWEVER, the fix to this particular bug also prevented us from being able to fight Nefarian. We didn't really care since we were only there to get to Chromaggus, but it made us feel special knowing that a GM broke a raid just for us! :P

My questions are...

Can Chromaggus be tamed by a L.80 hunter in emblem gear (not quite ICC gear) if he is able to get to him thanks to his guildies?

And... if that one boss bugs out (glitches) how do you continue on? Do you have to ticket a GM and wait for a response and then go back in? Is there a way around it? Does it bug out every run? Any clue if it will be fixed on Live?

I was hoping to get Chromaggus right after I tamed Gezz... probably within 1-3 days after the initial patch... but I don't want to drag my guild into BWL if me being a L.80 non-ICCed geared hunter will hinder me from nabbing him.

Opinions? Any suggestions other than to wait til L.85, because I don't want to. :P

I need more hunters, IMO.

The only possible way around Razorgore that I can think of is to just let everyone die. But like I said, the GMs responded to our ticket within minutes of putting it in.

*'Course, even if we did try to die, I'm not 100% sure that would've fixed our particular bug.

I believe you do need to ticket a GM to get past Chromaggus. Alas this'll probably take a few days. I'd actually get that out of the way asap and extend the raid lock so you can get in there and tame as soon as you can.

As for the tame itself, you should be fine. He shouldn't do too much damage to a level 80.

If you're really worried, grab a trash core hound for ancient hysteria to speed up the tame :)

@Moonlost: There has been some noise about raid locks getting discarded when 4.0.3a hits - I recall reading a blue linked via MMO-C saying that might happen. That's not to say you shouldn't prepare a raid lock, just giving you a heads up it might disappear...
