Making the World of Warcraft more trivial, one post at a time…

FesterFallWe had one look at Festergut last week after downing Saurfang for the first time. Nobody was hugely confident that we'd get him down this week – but, on the third attempt, down he went.

As with everyone, I suspect, getting the spores right was our biggest issue. An unnecessary run from the melee pack nearly cost us the final attempt, and some sluggish DPS movement wiped us the try before. 

But actually – I kinda enjoyed the fight. Trees seem well-suited to being in the melee pack, as Wild Growth really comes into its own in that situation. Co-ordinating the healing when one of the tanks reached 7 or 8 stacks of Gastric Bloat was the trick, though, making sure I was rolling HoTs on the tank about to taunt as well as Nourishing the existing tank.

Good fun. Here's the team. Makes me sad I'll probably miss next week's raid. πŸ™

  • Woohoo! Congrats! πŸ™‚

  • Wild Growth is awesome in this situation. I set Fester as my focus target and splash wild growth around him. That makes sense – he’s always in the exact center of the melee group so everyone will be in range of WG. (Yes, I discovered a few months ago that you can splash WG around a hostile target and woo hoo does that help a lot for bosses with big hit boxes!)

  • big gratz! keep it going πŸ™‚

  • I did not know that. I’d always just splashed around the tank, but this works better. Thanks for the pointer. πŸ™‚

  • Thanks!

  • Thanks, your thistle-ness. πŸ™‚
