**A note on dates. Dates are pretty important, but we have no idea how Silvermoon reckons time, so I’ve used the WoWWiki Unofficial Timeline dates for most of it. As such, all years are measured with the beginning of the First War as “Year 0” even though that makes fuckall sense for Blood Elves. You […]

Prince Malchezzar – WTF?
comment 3 Written by on March 16, 2008 – 12:03 am

So Totally Karazhan WTF has completed its third weekend raid, pull to Prince in 3 hours and 3 minutes, due to some… interesting… experiences on the last fight. Namely the misdirect totally not working – see the graphic, hunter pulls, hunter has aggro, dies, wipes raid. Very peculiar.

The Roster:

  • Protection Paladin
  • Feral Druid
  • Holy priest (x2)
  • Rogue (x2)
  • Enhancement Shaman (yours truly)
  • Elemental Shaman (our loot trashcan for the week)
  • Boomkin
  • BM Hunter

Curator in 2:05 (NEW RECORD MATTICUS!), Aran in 2:13, Prince in 5:32 on the final attempt. This week’s loot trashcan was an elemental shaman, so I took up my axe and mace and went to town – just like old times. It was *really weird* to be hitting things. For some reason the mental shift between resto and elemental is not as huge as the mental shift between resto and enhancement, and I was definitely rusty. But it was fun, if a little slower overall than last week, and everyone got 22 badges and some good loot!

  1. This was definitely a very weird run re aggro. The main difference between this last run and the one of the week before was that I swapped out my Hourglass of the Unraveller for Romulo’s Poison Vial. While the latter is mostly ‘meh’ in many regards, it’s is the single highest +hit trinket there is in the game, and that had the effect of putting me past the hunter hit cap. This meant that I missed -nothing-. Everything hit. Raid buffed, with a crit percentage in the 30s, it’s easy to spike up in threat gen without blowing trinkets and the like – in fact, I ran most of the raid in mana-save mode (ie. Aspect of the Viper instead of Hawk).

    We also speculated that being as far away as I was (300-350ms ping at the best of times), the server may have jumbled up some, being a busy day, exacerbating the threat gen spikes.


  2. I’m seeing a huge spike in Annalira’s threat generation as her gear approaches the spell hit cap and she starts to really get some spellcrit gear, so I know how you feel.

    And hey – we did get the bastard, just took a try or two!

  3. I’ve had that misdirect bug crop up a time or three. It’s very annoying, and seems to strike at random; I haven’t been able to find any correlation with my latency or similar.
