My guild has been getting successfully to phase3 on the 25man version of the fight for a while now. However we seem to hit a wall there.
As far as I can tell our dps simply drops too low. This is because of the movement involved, which will obviously slow dps down a bit. However our main problem, since we run a melee heavy raid, seem to be the Choking Gas Bombs. As soon as they spawn alot of our melee are eating the first tick, and getting the -75% hit debuff. They are not dying to it, but they always seem to get the debuff.
I've looked everywhere, but I can't for the life of me figure out exactly how these vials work. The only thing I know is that they spawn in melee range, and never in front of the boss. Some people say the always spawn directly behind him, and others say that they spawn in a "cone" at his back.
But here's what I want to know. Are they targeted? And by that I mean, do they spawn at someones feet, or are they just spawned in his general melee range.
And seeing as I am not always in melee range of the boss, I've not been able to find out for myself. Do they apply the debuff as soon as they spawn, as I've been told by the people getting hit, or is it simply a case of my melee doing the ol' tunnel vision?
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Can you please go over there please? Thank you very much.
