View Full Version : Putricide Alternative Strategy Videos?

I've been seeing references to an alternative Putricide strategy, ie, the one where you bunch up near the green ooze. Despite having read some descriptions, i cant quite visualize it or see into the important details that make this happen.

I would appreciate some links to good videos employing this tactic. Also, i'm mainly asking about this for our 25man raid. We did good but sort of ran into the enrage timer at 8%. We can kill him with the traditional method i'm sure, but if this alternative is easier i'd love to give it a go. Can this strat also be safely employed on 10man too, or is it not worth it?

It can be done on 10 man. It's just bunching on on the green. This is a vid of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mE755MLGVVs

It's also the preferred tactic for 25 heroic, you can check our video here.

Yea man, our guild got our first kill with the whole swapping sides strat but we never did that again. Staying on the "green side" is such a better strat.

If it helps, here's a video of one of our earlier heroic 25 kills. You can see where I drop the gas bombs in p2 also (by the door kinda), so have your tank do something similar. You don't want them dropping near where the green ooze spawns. In phase 2, I keep the boss a few yards further towards the middle instead of directly on top of where the green spawns, since the ranged on the wall wanted me to leave them more room to avoid the malleable goo. For normal, you can just stack directly on top of where it spawns (like I do in p1).
