hey guys, one strat to do this guy, not sure if its on the site, is to take him to the left or right and MT him between the 2 scrap piles. what this does is force the adds to have to come from the other side of the room and is so much easier to control them and dps them down. Just something my guild uses and works very well. Cider, feel free to try it out and put a strat on your page =P
My guild does the same.
Any information out yet on XT 002's hard mode abilities? I know you guys got some new footage coming soon, but im hoping to try hard mode with my 10 man on tuesday night and dont really want to go in blind.

It is definitly true that if you tank him between 2 scrap piles against one of the side walls, you will only get adds from the far 2 scrap piles. Works both in 25 and in 10. Have run both 10 and 25 that way 3 or 4 times, and have yet to see an add from the 2 piles we are in between. Also makes it easier to line up the raid in a straight line behind him, gravity bombs run out of the line right, the other bomb runs out left. Easy peasy.
Hard mode, didnt tried it before, but i heared it aint that hard on this boss.
Still puging most as i just made a guild to progress more in ulduar.
Still killed 6 bosses with pug and almost the 7th, wich aint bad.
Ulduar is getting easier if you have all people naxx 25/EoE25 geared. it will be smoot and a fun raid to do
After the first hotfixes, it was impossible and no one managed to kill it.
After the first nerf it was doable but tough and required co-ordination.
Right now though, it's very easy, on par with or even easier than Thorim and Hodir hard modes.
Has anyone noticed that with the patch they fixed this fight so that you can't tank XT to the side to only get 2 piles of adds?
If also seems like there are a ton more bombs as well, and it really caught us off guard. Took like 5 attempts to reajust our strategy.
Don't get your raid adjusted to cheesing a boss, simple as that. That was an obvious bug and really should not have been used by any one.
Is there a new link to a video where he is tanked on the side?
we are goign back in again tonight on 10 man after a few week break. Is he still bugged ?? do a shit load of adds still come.
The last time we did it, we ended up tanking him in the middle, as the left and right tank between the piles didnt stop adds from coming out of the nearest scrap piles.
You can now tank XT close to one scrap heap and no adds will spawn from that one. Of course, this info is only useful if you don't mind "cheesing" the boss with "an obvious bug".
