Attumen Soloed!

Logged into Fae tonight after a little time on my Night Elf Death Knight, Soupdragon, to notice a couple of friends in Tempest Keep, Dan got us both spots and lucky for me, I grabbed the tier 5 chest and shoulders giving me the 2 set finally! That is 15% of your damage heals your pet. So I fiddled around a little with my soloing gear, to be using 2 pieces of tier 5 and 2 pieces of tier 7 (5% extra pet damage). Anyway, after trying back on Jaedia without tier 5, I decided to pop back to Attumen, in Karazhan, and test the new 2 set and my God it makes a difference. Instead of panicking if my pet gets low on health I just need to nuke a little harder. Used foods and 2x level 80 stamina scrolls (on both me and my turtle), overall my pet had 25k health and the only wipes were me playing around with the trash packs before Attumen.

A tip for the trash, prioritise killing Stable Hands first because they damage your pet the most, then Chargers because they’re annoying to you, then the rest, and always make sure you pull back to avoid overpulls. Attumen himself is pretty much tank and spank, keep up Mend Pet, nuke down Midnight obviously Misdirecting occasionally, don’t want to overaggro, then onto Attumen, all the time ensuring Mend Pet is up and I highly recommend getting 2 pieces of tier 5 if you can. Time for me to go back to MGT HC, after failing miserably at the second boss yesterday, and test it out some more methinks.

Faction Champions

New boss up yesterday in Crusader’s Colosseum, The Faction Champions. The fight is basically one big arena. I can’t remember exactly which NPCs we had, though there was a priest, a resto druid, an enhancement shaman, a hunter and a warlock, definitely. In my opinion, it’s such a messy fight, just like arena, but bigger and with more repair bills. Now I don’t mind wiping, I don’t mind repair bills.. but putting arena into a raid?! I hated the fight personally, I do my best to avoid PvP and then they put it into PvE :<

There really aren’t any tactics except for PvP diminishing returns apply, so they eventually become immune to Crowd Control. Frost Traps are always nice, taking down the totems, and focus nuking the healers, then the NPC causing the highest threat to the raid. Scare Beast worked on the hunter pet.. but honest to God, there aren’t really any useful tactics. Whilst I hated the fight, I’m sure others don’t. It did remind me too much of the boss before Kael2 in Magister’s Terrace though..
