Did you hear? Shackling is now back in fashion!!!
There is lots of undead things in ICC and the new Instances – and shackling as crowd control has made a little bit of a come back.
In Halls of Reflection I shackle the Hunter Mob, the Tortured Rifleman so he stops shooting at us with his ice shot and iceblocking us.
In ICC 10 man, when doing several trash farming runs – ( a girl has to get her rep somehow when she isn’t guaranteed a spot in a raid – so honoured now!) and the 10 man Icc runs I’ve managed to do full runs on we were shackling the Spiders to reduce the webs immobilizing people, they also have a tendency to stand back away from the rest of the trash so easier to keep separate from the Aoe. I’ve not done the pull on 25 – as I was only in for the last 2 bosses on a 25 so I am not sure how finicky a well geared 25 group is on those pulls.
In Pit of Saron the two pulls straight after Krick and Ick ( the second boss) are the hardest to heal in any fight/instance I have done so far. Ymirjar Flamebearers doing a magic fire debuff, and the Ymirjar Wrathbringers casting blight – a disease – so it’s heal – dispel, cleanse, heal ect.
After that are two pulls with Wrathbone Coldwraith’s – and Melee always fail at getting out of the frost circle. I was doing Pit of Saron the other day with a DK tank who asked me ( as healer) to shackle one of the Coldwraiths. Which made it so much easier to heal that pull. Less circle failing.
