[MoP] LFR antics revisited

Ok has anyone had an LFR where Garalon hasn't cast crush?

Once someone said it just happens and there isn't anything to prevent it.

LOL, isn't crush just about a one shot in reg?

Crush does like 150k damage in reg...not a one-shot by any stretch, what it really does is puts mad stress on healers' mana. Especially since unnecessary Crushes are usually acompanied by a stack of Fury.

I've had LFR instances where he only has cast it a handful (2-3). I've also seen the same person trigger it 5+ times.

If we lose this freedom of ours, history will record with the greatest astonishment, those who had the most to lose, did the least to prevent its happening.

In LFR, if done right you can get no crushes.

If pheromones never get passed and no one ever ends up underneath him, he won't cast Crush.

That is an insanely competent LFR group (comparatively) if that happens though.

Well every LFR Garalon I've seen has had 20+ crushes.

near the end it lightens up as the fail noobs are dead by then.

The one and only time i did LFR on Garalon, we one shot it. I carried the pheromones the whole time. I was a resto shaman keeping myself the whole time too. We didn't wipe and only had a couple deaths. This was a complete PUG LFR and no premade groups.

Like a boss.

I did the exact same thing on my resto shaman this week, and idiot DK stole it from the tank and stood in the middle putting puddles so I just turned into a ghost wolf took the debuff and kited Garalon until he died.

Some noobness:

- Guardians: nobody tanks them they petrify everybody, luckilly they despawn but time wasted..
- Feng: Tanks never use their abilities, melee won't move from epicenter, ranged won't move with arcane thingie, both neve move with wildfire.
- Garajal: Usually involves nobody going into spirit world, he ends up killing tanks.
- Kings: get owned by flanking or leave pools of goo in middle or leave binding arrow victims trapped.
- Elegon: the fall boss
- Will of Emperor: too many adds or they get tanked too close.

(pardon the names I forget)
1st boss HoF: pretty much nothing, I think only staying in pheromone pool kills you.
2nd boss: the distracted guy that runs away and be one shotted by special attack usually takes a couple with him that ran after him.
3rd boss, The Legs! the Pheromones! the Crush!
4th boss: Can even be one tanked with all adds up, I rarely seen a wipe here.
5th boss: pretty much easy fight, even with some dead for standing in pools, mutated players don't know what to do.
6th boss: Only thing that kills here is the long fear at phase 3, easily dispelable or totem or racial.

(camel) ToES
1st Boss, another easy fight, even if you don't dispel buffs or move from the lightning attack
2nd Boss: The raid wiper: healers won't heal during day, on night people with too many stacks, dumb tanks making him breath on whole raid (where the raid of light is)
3rd Boss: Add management, focus 1 add, burn, all adds die, the usually one shot non tanks.
4th Boss, fears, standing outside wall, DPS needs to go kill adds, get back to the wall on fear, continue DPSing, if you get pulled away, kill the add, pick up globes (or he heals back) after getting back you are fear immune and can dps adds remaining..

Profit

I did my first MoP LRF last night. Most of it seemed pretty straightforward, but there were a couple times I didn't know wtf was going on.

I try to scan through the dungeon journal notes, and I look for any RED "!" next to it, since thats usually important. But sometimes there is a lot of info in there, and its easy to get overwhelmed reading it all. I ususally just ended up focusing whoever the top DPS was, and sticking on their ass the whole time.

I did fall to my death on elegon though

I fell my first time too. We'll both get called noobs but at least know you're not alone.

Last night was the first night I had done the Garalon raid. The main lesson I learned... switch to Destro upon entry. There were so many low hp mobs that by the time I got my seed spread in each of them and popped, they were dead. And I probably only had my dots spread on 5-8 of them (less than half) by that time. I was down in 8th or 9th on the DPS charts (when I was 1st in the previous two LFRs). I need to singe all their little wings next time.

how NOT to tank Garalon
Thankfully... this was a one-shot because of some amazing healers. This isn't my screenshot... a guildmate emailed it to me with a "remember this one?" note. There were lots of "crushes". Don't blame the 2 main tanks, either... dps kept grabbing pheromones, and running full-speed across the map... the straight edges on the map (far left corner) were when I could "leap of faith" one of the crazies, grab the pheromones... and then calmly lay down some pools... but LoF has a CD... /sigh.

That looks like something I would do after multiple wipes, and the fact I have only gotten 1 piece of gear since the release of MoP on my warrior. I hate this new loot system.

I had my first tier piece drop for me last night. Gloves. Win. Looked them up online and found out that my gemmed Spelltwister gloves that I'm currently using actually put out more dps than the no socket tier gloves. So now they just ride around with me in my bag waiting for a companion. Fail.

Had a lapse in judgement today in LFR. On the Stone Guardians I decided to pop all cd's and trinket about 5 seconds in on my fury warrior. I figured I am only ilvl 460 and the tank seems competent what could go wrong. I went splat pretty quick after spiking up to 115k dps and pulling aggro. Tank brezed me and after the fight asked me what had happened. I told him what I did he laughed and said that was my one time he would let me pull aggro

haha... at least he was cool about it.

Last week we had a similar thing happen with Polluxx... gave him a quick rundown of the fight (on Normal) but totally forgot to ask him to give a solid 5-count for the paladin pulling the pair of dogs. He didn't go splat, but it was very close (i swear his health bar disappeared for a second)... all three healers were on him with our expensive heals, lol.

Mcbrain was going splat quite often.

I love new tanks on these kind of fight, tank runs to Spirit Kings and pulls the boss to get one shotted (guilty) or the tank that yells with all his power "I WILL TANK GARALON" just to pull him and "tank" him in the middle of the room, many wtfs were had.

9 mins 34 seconds Garalon kill.... it took like 4 mins 15 people left alive to do it.., I was on my ele shaman (of course top DPS), I had to heal myself so many times..

First MSV wing was amazing though... 15 people above 50K all the time, I was competing with some i490 hunter, giving him a run for his money... barely beat him on Feng by .1%

LOL I remember that. I have an ability that gives me 100% parry for a few seconds. That and your heals kept me alive!

I had the same thing with Immer the first time we did LFR Spirit kings.

I had one of those moments back in cata during firelands. First boss pull went a little like this.
Raid lead: 3...2...1 pulling.
Cptbeatstix: I GOT THIS!!!
RL: Beatstix wait!
Me: BEATSTIX SMASH!!!!!!
--Cptbeatstix has died--
RL: Damn't someone brez him
Me: That was totally worth it.
I might actually have this on video, but I may have deleted those. I was known for ripping aggro when I popped CD's. Back when single minded fury was OP.
