I’d seen this rare around early in the expansion, watching a group of Alliance try and take this massive beast down with a group of about 8 at the time. They had a lot of trouble with his abilities. Today I managed to spot this rare again with Coolidge on my back (literally) and I knew it would be a feat to kill him as a duo. Having experienced his abilities first hand we sent a few calls out gaining a DPS from the Guild to help. Being Christmas Day, attendance online was pretty sketchy. Our little band of three soon became four and with a couple more attempts we knew we needed 1 more to take him down. Before we knew it word had spread around and we had a small raid of seven.
Julak-Doom has three abilities:
- Black Breath – which creates a puddle of dark ooze that deals Shadow damage to all enemies in the area and has a 60yd range.
- Dark whispers – invade the target’s mind, forcing them to do the bidding of Julak-Doom. Removed when damaged below 90% health.
- Massive Shockwave – has an unlimited range and stomps the ground, emitting a massive shockwave that deals Physical damage to targets in a cone in front of the caster and knocks them down.
That’s where the extra numbers are needed. It was hard enough when one of us was MC’ed but in a group of three, two will get MC’ed instead. So with our last attempt with seven, the fight proved to be a non-issue and was over in ~4 minutes.
Four down, one group rare to go. Xariona, I’m coming for you next.
