Recently killed this punk and thought I'd share for those of you who are maybe thinking of working on him. Before each dark vial phase there is a chance Maloriak will cast release aberrations, if he did we'd just let it go (which he did both times this attempt) and we'd just AoE down those 3 with the slimes. 6 Abberations is much easier to deal with than 9.
Very interesting idea, makes it way easier for the offtank and frees up another slot for 25s. There's always a 'release aberrations' cast for us, just make sure that only one person interrupts the first storm - the other cast will follow right after that and if two people try interrupting it's most likely the second one will interrupt the release cast.
But one thing comes to my mind, aren't some aoe damaging casts are capped like aoe healing spells to six targets? Further targets will reduce their effectiveness per target? And tabbing for all the multidotting classes becomes worse.
Our group was working on this last night. However, our first three adds only seemed to spawn every few attempts. Is anyone able to confirm or refute that using a spell school lockout interrupt on the first Arcane Storm will prevent him from casting before Dark Phase?
