The morning of the all hands summon to the Blasted Lands, Aely went for a walk. The late fall air was clear and cool, and leaves crunched under their feet in the less-traveled parts of the streets. She and Roger took the long way around Old Town, south through Tanner Circle and down Bulwarks, across […]

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.
