High Astromancer Solarian

Our first guild shake out vs. Solarian took place and I can say we can easily down this mage, but alas ….. we finally made it on the 7th attempt.  The only cause of our deaths/wipes in the first 6 attempts was…. the bomb.  Yep, because most of our guild lives around the world (Australia, USA, South America), there are lag issues from time to time. 

How do you like my Ashtongue Broken disguise?

When Solarian targets one raid member who has >400 ms lag, even the shouting and screaming on Ventrilo will not get the laggy raider to get away from the rest of the group fast enough.  My latency hovers around 300-400ms and Solarian’s room gives EVERYONE lower fps (too large a room or too many spell effects ?).  My fps went from 30 to 19 just by coming into Solarian’s chamber.

I have to tell you, there is a feature in the Deadly Boss Mod (DBM) addon that works wonders for letting YOU know that YOU are the BOMB and to run away from the rest of the clustered up raiders.  See the advanced options and click every item in the list (something like 6 or 7 options), one of which is something like “Play sound when Solarian casts Wrath on you“.  Very handy feature.

Had wipes because someone didn’t move fast enough and many raiders died from Solarian’s wrath debuff.

I don’t have any combat stats for the Solarian kill because I had to restart my computer and of course forgot to enter “/combatlog” to capture the data.  Here is the ‘almost killed Solarian‘ attempt.

Party members were:

  • Warrior
  • Warrior
  • Warrior
  • Rogue
  • Shaman (me)

Buffs were:

  • Windfury Totem (duH! look at all the warriors in my group)
  • Strength of Earth Totem
  • Healing Stream Totem
  • Searing Totem

I did pop bloodlust/heroism in the first 10 seconds so we could get more dps in, but I don’t think it made too much difference in the end.

Check out the top dps on this attempt!  Hurray for 1626 dps!

Combat stats addons

Combat stats include things like damage taken, damage given, crits, healing done, ranking %, how-you-died and raid wide accuracy.  These are also my major concerns to combat stat addons.  That and the fact that people cannot seem to understand tact and showmanship go hand-in-hand when spamming your top ranking spot and the other lower ranking spots in dungeon instance run.  /groan
