View Full Version : Stratholme Boosting with a mage or warrior?

08-27-2008, 01:36 PM
Hey, I am currently boosting in SM-Cath with my mage, boosting 4 guys. It seems to work OK, and they are in their 37s now.

Planning ahead, I was wondering how hard it will be to boost in Stratholme? Anyone have experience with this?

My mage is non-raid geared: 900+ dmg, 8k hp, (heroics and KZ mostly) and can 4-pull Cathedral as long as I am paying attention :)

Also, I have a 70 warrior in non-heroic gear, should I use him instead?

Thanks for your help!

I was able to boost with my Mage all the way through ZF with out any problems.
I did enough damage in ZF that I didn't get hexed.

But Strat is where the line was drawn, the mobs just killed me regardless of how small the pull was.
My shammies couldn't' heal me fast enough, and I have pretty good gear (all epics, two pices of the new badge loot and s3&s4).

Im straight questing now, with RAF it's working out pretty good.

if you have one or more healers in your team... take the warrior.
spec him fury - (depending on your gear fury with some points in protection - something like this: http://www.wowhead.com/?talent=LVZVVhVgxRVu0o0xx0h ).

Don't push your Chars with a Mage or a Warrior if you couldn't debuff the illness/poison.
I would only push in Strath if I have a Prot-Pala.

I prefer pushing in Scholomance with my mage.
3-4 mobs in a group, sheepable Humans, ...
