HoTs and DoTs: A Restoration Druid and Shadow Priest

Snobolds Get their Revenge (and they Haven’t Forgotten about the Candles)

Wednesday night after maintenance/patching I headed over to the Argent Tournament ground (by flight path, not on my Magic Carpet, but that’s another story) with my guild to kill the first, and only, boss in the new Trial of the Crusader/Colosseum raid.

Remember those candles you had to “collect” by killing Kobolds/Snobolds in the mines near Goldshire? Well the Snobolds haven’t forgotten either.

I had done very little prepping (ok, I’ll admit, none) on the Northrend Beasts encounter because I tend to enjoy content more if I experience it first hand with no preconceptions. But I was told going in “DPS the adds first, people with poison and fire have to move towards each other and run away from the person he targets and stuns”. Well the advice was more or less sound. Still didn’t prepare me when an angry Snobold Vassel jumped on my back and attacked me!

The Snobolds are back and they're angry

The Northrend Beasts encounter has three phases – a different beast form for each.

You’ll start out fighting against Gormok the Impaler in phase one and his Snobolds. The Snobolds will jump on a player’s back and slow/daze and interupt them from casting. They won’t let go until they are dead. And surprise, they like to grief the healers first and foremost. Perhaps they keep track of all those Devout Candles we burn in prayers.

The second phase consists of killing a pair of giant Jormungar. This is the hardest part of the encounter I think. Lathere tells me you’re meant to use a ranged DPS class to “tank” one of the worms, but we just had 2 of our normal tanks handle it.

In the second phase each worm will periodically spit and cover several people with poison or several people with fire. The only thing that can remove the poison (which freezes you in place, thus effectively removing you from the fight altogether, after about 15 seconds) is a player with the fire (which damages everyone around them). The worms don’t spit at the same time which is what makes it tricky.

In the third phase you’ll fight Icehowl, a giant snowy gorilla. He likes to target a player and charge them. The first time this happened I watched a guildie get stunned and then trampled which was pretty damn amusing to watch. Then people started experimenting with their survival talents and racial abilities and, unfortunately, nobody else died in the same manner.

The video below is a capture from our first Northrend Beasts kill, our third attempt at the encounter, and it’s pretty long because I think only about 10 people are still alive by the time we reach Icehowl. (If the video proportions are out-of-wack click on the video below and watch it at WeGame – seems to playback better.)

BTW, aside from those first 5 or 10 candles which I lifted, I paid for all the rest. I swear!

  2. Sweet blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News. Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News? I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there! Thanks

  3. Hello! I know this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask. Does building a well-established blog such as yours take a lot of work? I’m completely new to operating a blog however I do write in my diary every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

It does well as the focal point of a pot and can stay colourful all winter, running to seed in early spring. Ornamental kale is similar, but with shaggier leaves. Both thrive in reasonably well-drained soil or in pots, in sun or light shade. [url=]cheap oakleys[/url]
