Seriously, this guy sucks. Go respec frostfire or something.
I PvP as Frost and was in the middle of tagging horde flags when my queue popped. I had no idea this guy was immune to frost, so I just spammed Fireball in my Frost spec. No deaths, topped DPS, and I was the only one hitting the boss.
I’m fairly confident this guy can be soloed as anything other than a Frost Mage or Frost DK.
nah, you’ll still need to handle adds. His damage reduction buff during the adds phase would take too long otherwise.
This is also awesome for DKs, who can’t even respec. Instead they just have to deal with having 1 less disease up.
As someone with a DW Frost DK offspec, I feel for you as well. BLOODY HELL.
This pissed me off royally. Spent the entire fight running around spamming Arcane Explosion… Also had melee dps chasing my Squirtle around trying to kill him…
Very irritating. I thought we were over mechanics like this?
I laid down a flamestrike and spammed arcane explosion, only to watch the tank do more damage than me. He laughed and simply said to spam FFB on the boss. Feels bad, man.
Tanking this guy as a frost DK also sucks.
WHY, BLIZZARD, WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY
must… resist… snark about frost dk tanks…
BLizz hates Frost mages…there I said it.
I’m starting to believe this more and more.
Spammed fire AoE (forget the name…huuurrrrr) for the adds and threw out some frostfire bolts. It sucked. I did horrid dps.
Next time around, played as Arcane… that was a much more tollerable experience.
Pretty much what I did. I felt useless the entire time. This is the reason why Bashertin refuses to do any of the midsummer crap.
It was the last thing I needed for the meta. And I gots it! WOOT!
as a frostfire mage, i certainly had the ability to hit him, but the increased amount of mobs kept me to busy to do anything to him. on my second run on him of the night, our group wiped twice. : (
As Fire-based Frostfire, Tab-Living Bomb tends to be ineffective, since adds die before the blast goes off. I’d probably just stay on the boss, and keep flamestrike up or something like that.
I was amused when I called out my Mirror Images. Like my husband’s squishy, they just stood around, but they did cast Fireblast when it was off cooldown!
Yeah, I went arcane on my mage for that fight.
I’m not looking forward to respec my secondary spec into Arcane or Fire. In fact, I’ll probably not do it at all. I’d very much just do it on a different character altogether; it’s not like my mage needs anything from this guy anyway.
What. The. Heck. This is such a stupid and outdated mechanic.
I have no non-frost spec
/threaten Blizzard with wrath of Frosty Doom
Now that I think about it:
Although it very well may be an “outdated” mechanic, it seems to make sense that someone named “The Lord of Frost” would actually be immune to such attacks.
If the Vault bosses aren’t immune to their respective attacks, then Ahune shouldn’t be, from a design standpoint. I don’t normally say this, but Fuck Lore, I want my lewts.
Are they ALL frost lords?
I would have no problem with this if the mechanic was universal. But no! Any bosses who might be arcane/nature/fire based have no immunities, “arcane go lawlblast” and yes, once more the frosties are left holding the lonely, cold, shaft.
P.S. First time posting, Lotsa love Krizzly, on Steampanku, as well.
Vault bosses set the standard here. Holy damn.
And yeah, I should probably post more on steampanku =/
Rune of Razorice: Fail
Icy Touch: Fail
Frost Strike: Fail
Howling Blast: Fail
Tank as Frost DK: Fail.
Only having to fight this guy once per day instead of 5 times: EPIC
Yes. The new dungeon finder system for holiday bosses make this so much better. Not only do you only have to queue once to get your daily chance, but you can queue MORE THAN 5 times if you want a particular drop from him but can’t seem to get to drop.
