Possible hotpatch to Gluth's Zombie Chow behavior?
My guild has had success with the Gluth fight over the past 3 weeks. Our first two weeks fighting him, we one-shotted him each time. Last night, however, we were unable to get him down below 25% despite several attempts.
Our raid leader is a mage who has kited the Zombies for each of the 3 weeks. He says he noticed a change in the zombie's behavior this week - they were much more difficult to kite and keep off the healers. The healers would go OOM healing themselves from zombie attacks, and at Devistate, a tank would get smooshed while at the 5% health.
We've had so little trouble with the fight the weeks of 12/9 and 12/16; but then we get repeatedly stumped this week. Has anyone else noticed a change in the Gluth fight - specifically in the behavior of the Zombies?
Our raiders are the same from previous weeks, and everyone's in the same role. I'm wondering if the fight got hotpatched to correct some behavior of the zombies. That, or perhaps our healer's upgrades have starting to produce larger heals and more aggro.
Any other mage kiting tips?
