Brief Event Overview & Strategy

This event involves Wither and Decay bosses, oozes that target players, and types of Withering debuffs which hamper performance.

Follow MA calls, as focus our DPS against Wither or Decay depending on which incarnation it is.  Transitions can be their regular names Wither and Decay or:
[ Wither/Decay ], Fearing the Next Transition
[ Wither/Decay ], Prepared to Die

Withering debuffs are one of the main mechanics in this event.  Which debuff you get has something to do with your distance in relation to x/y boss and/or in the case of tanks and Withering Physicality debuff, whether you're currently tanking Wither boss (highest aggro).  Other factors are also in play which can alter these mechanics (details in sub-section Withering Debuffs).

It's possible to have more than one debuff at a time.  All debuffs persist through death.  Debuffs increase in intensity over short periods (ranks 1 through 10).

When a GREEN form boss dies, all your debuffs are removed.

Three types of Withering debuffs appear to be in play for this event:

Withering Physicality   - Bad for tanks (take more damage)
   - Lands on you when tanking Wither boss (highest aggro).
   
Withering Limbs   - Bad for DPS (do less damage)
   - Lands on you when in close proximity to Wither boss.
   
Withering Life   - Bad at higher ranks, DD + DoT scales up (X = 92k DD + 92k DoT, 18s)
   - Lands on you when far away from Wither boss.  This can change, details in sub-section Withering Debuffs
   

So, as you can see above, handling which debuff you have/get is a balancing act.  For example, as a DPS, you cannot solely just range DPS the entire time, because at a distance, you'll get Withering Life, DD+DoT; that scales up and will kill you.  In close range, you'll get Withering Limbs, that reduces your DPS by 100% in short order.  If you're part of the Wither MTO, once you tank Wither, you'll get Withering Physicality debuff and in about 45s-60s, you'll die from melee damage.

Tanks:
  • Withering Physicality III or IV above, do not be tanking either boss.  Call for tank swap.
  • Paladins - Purification AA, can remove a debuff, but it'll immediately return at the same rank.

Oozes:

When targeted by an ooze (Vomit aura), run north immediately, and let the ooze catch you there before returning to the raid.  When the ooze catches you, it turns big and remains stationary.  Anyone in the ooze gets hit by an aura AE.  You must react fast to this emote, as the ooze pops almost immediately when you're targeted.

Ooze notes:
- Try not to hang out at the north campfire unless you're emoted.
- Don't stand in oozes (we have a trigger to help with this, 3rd person view helps too).
- Oozes can path weird and get stuck.
* Rez'ing:  /corpse your target before you rez, to avoid rezzing someone into an ooze aura DD.


Withering Debuffs

Spell Details:
  • Withering Physicality/Limbs last 5 minutes.
  • Withering Life lasts 18s, refreshes though based on proximity check.
  • Withering debuffs spell rank increases every 15s.  If 20 min event timer exceeded, rank increases reduced to 5s intervals.

Withering Physicality   [ I - X ]   - Increase Hit Damage Taken by 5% (rank I) to 2560% (rank X)
         - Targets current tank on Wither (highest aggro).
         
         - Example on 3rd person: Overeasy's bones are brittle.
         - Example on 1st person: Your bones are brittle.
         - Example off: Your bones are no longer brittle.
         
         - Emote 1st person: Wither tells you, 'Wither will splinter and brittle your bones! I'll laugh in pure joy at the sound of your groans!'[/i]
         
Withering Limbs   [ I - X ]   -  Decrease Spell & Hit Damage by 10% (rank I) to 100% (rank X)
         - Targets players close to Wither boss.
         
         - Example on 3rd person: Evilash's muscles atrophy.
         - Example on 1st person: Your muscles atrophy.
         - Example off: You regain your musculature.
         
         - Emote1: Wither says 'Not enough piggies nearby to make a full eight? I'll have to speed up their atrophying fate!'
         - Emote2: Wither says 'Wither spies eight little piggies nearby. Little piggies' limbs will atrophy!'
         
         Notes:
         Emote1 above suggests periodical check for eight players nearby, else Limbs scaling interval increases.
         
         
Withering Life   [ I - X ]   - 1k DD + 1k DoT (rank I) to 92k DD + 92k DoT (rank X)
         - Targets players far away from Wither boss.
         
         - Example on 3rd person: Mulila ages prematurely.
         - Example on 1st person: You age prematurely.
         - Example off: You regain your youth.
         
         - Emote1: Wither says 'Off in the distance, Wither spies innocent youths. Age will take you early, young fools.'
         - Emote2: Wither says 'No youths in the distance to feel their lives wither? The close ones will do just as well, if not better!'
         
         Notes:
         Emote2 above suggests periodical checks for x players distance
         to Wither boss.  If player threshold not met, reverse the mechanic
         and target players with Life debuff that are close to Wither boss.

Under the Flag & Key Requirements section, you have it as "Mirror Fragment of Anashit Sul is not required", but it is listed as the keyword to enter the instance.

Wither and Decay Defeated!  Nice work everyone!  Bit of a rough run, but we'll have adjusts for next week to smooth things out.

Keep an eye on this thread for updates and adjusts before our next run.

Just a side note before I forget:
- This raid is buggy when you wipe, tanks need to zone out/back in instead of just laying around in hover mode waiting for a rez. Ae taunt and Ageless enmity will not work if you do not zone, which are two very important abilities in this particular raid -
- Unflinching attention WILL NOT give you highest agro. Stop relying solely on this ability for tank swaps as once it fades, wither will go right back to the previous tank and screw thier timer and more than likely kill them -
- this raid relys on adept and responsive tanks - Check my Warrior post out Here For tips or just ask me in game.
- On a swap call, Pop flash of anger, ageless enmity then phantom agressor. If ageless is down hit AE taunt, If both of those are down hit warlords grasp and hope a taunt is successful before grasp fades. If you didn't get a taunt in before grasp faded, pop Unflinching before grasp fades and hope taunt will be successful! While grasp/unflinching are on use all agro abilities ~ Use the hate meter/Target window to see who is top agro to know when you have true agro, or Don't.

I wonder if it would be better to range Decay and melee/stay close to Wither. If he increases the level of his debuffs when he doesn't have enough in range. Or when melee are on Decay, have casters/priests keep close to Wither to get the Limbs debuff and keep it from leveling up.

I noticed a couple of times on the latest raid that the slime would be triggered when I was not near it, but I think my pet might have been. One was aimed at me while I was calling someone back, and I finished casting, then ran to campfire, and it went to where I was calling and triggered. The second one followed me to campfire but triggered before reaching me. Both times seemed shorter than the usual time it takes to auto-trigger.

It could be, but I'm not sure.  What I do know though, from making the same mistake myself a few weeks ago, is that delaying after being emoted to finish a cast is a sure fire way to fail the emote.  There seems to be a very small window to react, certainly less than six seconds and definately less than 10-12 seconds of normal warning usually associated with emotes of this nature.

Updated the strategy post related to the ooze emote:

When targeted by an ooze (Vomit aura), run north immediately, and let the ooze catch you there before returning to the raid.  When the ooze catches you, it turns big and remains stationary.  Anyone in the ooze gets hit by an aura AE.  You must react fast to this emote, as the ooze pops almost immediately when you're targeted.


Updated ooze trigger action instructions.

Optimized the triggers.

Last night we tried dpsing Decay first then Wither.  It appeared we got both to 50% initially MUCH faster.  Can help us in getting event done prior to timer elapsing.

Getting better. excellent job on dropping them before timer was up.

Tanks - good job on the tank swap chain. very appreciated.

I changed the trigger for the vomits to show when next vomit is coming, and to give a 3 second warning to back away from Decay.

Thanks Raccoo.  I changed decay to boss, and giving the trigger a try for our next run.

We have to be careful, when we're doing the one /ach where we need x people to stay near each boss, we wouldn't want them backing away.  Unless of course they were actually ooze targeted (which is a different emote).  Anyway, just mentioning it here, as others may be reading it as well, so a reminder to all!
