Discovering Uldum - navigating skills

Discovery: Uldum

1

When it seems like things are getting a little mundane with all that raiding, farming and Archaeology; spare a thought for those other famous explorers like Marco Polo and Captain Cook.

Uldum has got to be my all-time favourite discovery in Cata, so it’s only fitting that it ended up being the subject of our EPIC photo op.

Good work Coolidge on your EPIC navigating skills :)

 

Rare Elite – Garr

Not bad. Our 2nd Group rare in 2 days!
Just 2 more and our Group Rare collection will be complete.

We tackled this familiar foe with 5 people using 3 ranged DPS to avoid his Massive Eruption – which deals Fire damage to nearby enemies. Although you can pull him without his adds they did have a certain affinity for Fae’s pet :P Thank goodness for Feign :)

His other 2 abilities:

  • Magma Shackles – Reduces the movement speed of nearby enemies by 60% for 10 sec.
  • Antimagic Pulse – Dispels magic on nearby enemies, removing 1 beneficial spell effect.

…didn’t pose much of a problem.

Like the others, you can’t kite too far from when you pull him as he will reset. We managed to keep him close to the tree towards the middle of his pathing route and managed to rotate him around the tree as the adds patrolled past. The fight itself took ~20mins due to his location I suspect, higher level and all that.

Rare Elite – Mobus

Here’s our 2nd Group Rare kill taken in the Abyssal Depths of Vashj’ir. The kill itself took ~12mins with five level 80′s.

Mobus has 4 abilities:

  • Algae clouds which can be easily moved out of once he has targeted someone;
  • Ram which had our tank using a CD for every cleave;
  • Wake basically our DPS kept to one side of him for the duration; and
  • Enrage which he will do towards the end.

We actually used 2 healers but could probably have used one as long as everyone watched out for his abilities. All in all, I had to hymn once and fiend in addition to 3 innervates :P That’s DPS/healing though.
