Yogg is dead for the Second week in a row, and on the Tenth attempt for the week. My main role in this fight is a Dispeller I need to get the diseases, and Magic effects off people asap. I have said that using Decursive, and that clicking on those little boxes makes me feel like I am hitting Gophers on the head. Right clicking Cure Disease, Left clicking Dispel Magic.
The most obvious affect of spending alot of time dispelling is that DPS Suffers. So I expect to be a lot lower on the charts. Another downside of dispelling is the Mana cost – I have a 20/0/51 Spec for this fight to help in the reduction of Mana costs
3/3 Absolution, and 2/3 Mental Agility goes a long way to making my Dispels a lot more mana efficient – Meaning I can DPS more, and Dispel more because I have lower casting costs. I had to put 1 point in Unbreakable Will to get the 15 points required for Absolution and Mental Agility. Or I would have rathered 3/3 Mental Agility. I had to keep 51 points for Shadow so I could still use Dispersion. I’ve done some reading of Forums, and there doesn’t seem to be alot of stuff about who should be dispelling, bar ” anyone who can” I approached our DPS lead because Mana was a serious issue of mine, and he agreed to let me try out the Spec, and I used it for Both our Yogg kills. To show it works here is a parse of the Log for our attempts.
To be honest I dislike staring at boxes, Should I have to like it ? I like that I had a problem, ( mana) had an idea of solving it ( a more mana efficient dispel spec) and was given the freedom to try a solution – and I feel proud that it works.I think the results speak for themselves.
However – there are alot of variables in the fight – The less Tentacles that are up = the less things there are to dispel. Attempt 6 had me doing 127 dispels at 39.4 % of all dispels but the sucessfull kill fight, I was top dispeller again, but with only 39 dispels, and 41.1% The more Dps on the Tentacles the less there are of them. So I hope as the fight gets easier there will be less demand for dispelling because DPS will be better – so less mana used, and more time I can spend Dpsing so I can get back my duel spec.
I also dislike the idea that anyone who can dispel should. Because that anyone can be 7 people, healers, dps, tanks, and if 7 people stop what they are doing, to cleanse one thing, then thats a waste of concentration. It seems to be now assumed that I will be the main dispeler in Yogg, and as much as I hate staring at boxes, it makes more sence to let me – so that 6 other people can concentrate primarily on their task – Gimp one person, not 7.
