Heroic 10 Man Northrend Beasts (post ur strat)
I'm looking for strategies for 10 man heroic northrend beasts and what kind of classes and spec of classes that have been working for your guild also the timers for each phase. Also what's the the min dps you found required to get the bosses down in time
thanks appreciate any help and I'm sure plenty will read any help u can offer :)
1 pally tank, 2 healers, 7 dps. Insane?
Here is the strat the my guild did to get him down:
1 - Pally Tank (yes 1 pally tank)
1 - Holy Priest
1 - Resto Druid
1 - Feral DPS
1 - Assassination Rogue
1 - Arms Warrior
1 - Ret Pally
1 - Fire Mage
1 - Ele Shaman
1 - Destro Lock
- Have the priest cast Guardian Spirit whenever its up (Glyphed for it)
- Use Divine Protection after Gormok whenever its up
- Have a druid or DK in the raid for phase 1
- Melee stay out of Slime Pool!!!
We start the fight with me engaging Gormok and having the shaman blow bloodlust to get a good head start on the fight. I know alot of other guilds who save the bloodlust for Icehowl, but since we only have 1 tank, we felt this was the best option to get through the impales as quickly as possible.
As soon as the first snobold comes up, ranged dps switches to nuke them down. Its very important to do this since they can be really annoying and can kill healers quickly if not dealt with.
Now I am constantly getting stacks of Impale and at one point I get 6 stacks on me. Now if you have a priest in the raid you can have them cast guardian spirit on the tank to help in case of death. Yes Pallys have Ardent Defender, but another backup for this kinda of fight is nice. Also if guardian spirit is not used and your priest is glyphed for it, they can use it again later in the fight (1 min). After the 6th impale, the feral druid (or a DPS DK in frost presence) goes bear, hits barkskin, and then taunts, so the pally tank can bubble, then immediately taunt back.
As Dreadscale moves into the arena, burn the remaining snobolds up before you engage. Now for our strat we burn Acidmaw first! With this strat Dreadscale enrages, but not enough to really be a problem as long as your healers are on the ball. The tank grabs Dreadscale and moves him over to Acidmaw. Lay a Consecration next to both worms, and make sure they are faced away from the raid. Now Acidmaw will do a knockback so make sure your faced close to the wall, and have your healers keep as many hots on you as possible, as you may go out of range for a few seconds. If anyone in the raid gets hit with the poison, have them move to the main tank from the side. then move back and get into position to dps. If you have melee for this fight, they will have to stay back after the slime pool is down around the worms. Once acidmaw is down, kite Dreadscale around the room and burn him down.
Icehowl comes into the room, and if you have made it this far with everyone up, then you should be good to go! Have the tank pick him up as soon as he comes in and then start to nuke him. We like to keep him as close to the wall as possible to allow the rest of the raid to spread out inside the arena. After he does his first charge and is stunned, we have the dps use a speed pot and nuke him down.
I am going to post a link to a video that i made of this exact fight and how it all went down. Okay first and foremost, I am a clicker, and I have a very elaborate UI (some say full, messy, whatever) but it all works for me.
I am not saying this is the way to do it, I am just saying its A way, and something I think hasn't been done yet (to my knowledge).
