Gurtogg Bloodboil – and Shadow Priesting

Got pulled into a raid again last night…
I could have said no. I should have said no. I have stopped raiding. I dont want to. I am currently Disliking 25 mans for a variety of reasons. But I said Yes.. It Peeves me off that all these people are not available for learning fights ( hence why I got called in ) /end rant

But now back to Gurtogg Bloodboil – Its a complicated fight, Boss killers has a Strat Bloodboil Strat

I guess we did our own variation which we worked out when we got there.. We didnt use the lines as we relied on markings in the three groups and placement so that you knew you had to be infront of ‘Moon’ group. Then you had to be back ect ect..

We tried a couple of times before calling it – the fight requires three groups to co-ordinate moving back and forth on a line to swap being the furtherest away from him to get the bloodboil debuff during phase 1 we got that bit right. It just got a bit messy after that .. we made to it the beginning of phase 1 again, but Bloodboil was in the wrong spot so our lines were a mess and we all died again…

But its a start…
I didnt feel like my DPS was restricted a whole lot, being that Shadow priests needs to worry about range. When we were the furtherest group I was out of range for Mindflay, but thats only for 10 seconds so it didnt bother me

I got Felraged the first time – and the second time.. Must have been the agro from the Ve / VT / Its supposed to be a random target
As per Bosskillers if you get selected…
Fel Rage
Places this 30 second debuff on a seemingly random raid member every 90 seconds, and on Gurtogg himself. Gives the following effects:

– increases armour by 15,000 (not applicable to Gurtogg)
– increases health by 30,000 (not applicable to Gurtogg)
– increases healing done by 100%
– increases damage done by 300%
– decreases cost of spells and abilities by 50%
– increases size by 100%

My shadow Word pain was ticking for over 3k Boooyyyyeah!

Now I think I remembered to sheild during fel rage- it didnt help. It’s benifit doesn’t seem to be increased by the felrage and I would image inner fire also.. ( which is a shame.. ) and you need alot of healing no matter what your class to take the damage
I was getting hit for 8k Damage each swipe he took at me – and yeah I didnt survive…

But as a shadow Priest Forget any cast sequences because of the movements in phase 1 – watch your threat – keep sheild up to reduce aoe damage. stam up – be mindful of the spells you cast and that it is more important that you move then getting that spell off. You need to be quick or you get double debuffs

    As the tank I had completely the oppositte reaction when I got picked was a wonderful feeing watching my health top 35K (or 39K :P) my amour hit the cap, and him still miss 61% of his attacks, its a lot easier when this hits a plate user ,for a cloth user th best I can sugges is pray :P.

    😛 be a tank, was really enjoying laughing at him, vent went very loud when I got it and the RL was yelling “heal the rage target” and the healers were basically saying they could go afk (I blew my pocket watch for fun:P).

    Yea definitly a fight to stare at that threat meter… We usually wait until the first fel enrange to dps at all, then I still have to be careful with ve.

    Our shadowform (15% reduced physical) is pretty nice for this fight, I’ve only been the tank twice but never died. I’ve gotta say you’re healers aren’t on their game if they couldn’t keep you up…. a mage would have zero chance if they can’t keep you up.

    Unless you were throwin shadow word deaths xD

    it was supposed to be a random target!- not me! twice.! and I was only standing in for that raid..
    I did check my healing logs and I wasn’t getting much…. but from 2ndnins comment it would seem that any class with a decent dodge rating would be alot easier to heal 🙂
