Also dropped Thaddius on first try too :)
They are in the Abomination wing, I think there was a write up on it.. let me see if I can find.

Grobbulus hard - Very Hard, this fight is not a multiboxing fun fight. He will constantly place a disease debuff on a random person in the party giving them 7 seconds to run away from the raid before it goes off. It does quite a bit of damage but most importantly leaves a poison field on the ground that starts out small and then expands so it's crucial you run to the correct spots to drop this off. It can happen where your characters keep getting called and you need to be able to individually control them and run them away, while still maintaing decent DPS in order to drop the boss before it gets out of hand. This fight will definitely not be easy for most, and you may have to drop a few characters if it just isn't working out too well.

gratz!! What did you do for Thaddius, put them around the platform and not stack/run or actually run all 4 of them on charge changes? Either way, both fights are pretty crazy to multibox so big props to you :)

I've done Grobbulus quite some times now. Key is to keep dps up. The rate at which the injections come are -TIME- based and not HP based like most are lead to believe.

The higher the dps, the faster the kill, the easier it is to multibox.

Ending his life in under 5 minutes will make it easy, somewhere around 6 minutes into the fight things start getting a bit complicated and after seven minutes all hell breaks loose. (My fastest kill is 2 minutes and 45 seconds with four of my shamans present now and he's piss easy then. :P )

Here's a tip tho, have DBM installed on all characters and a "/cast [target=player] Cure Disease" on all four (not broadcasted). When one gets the injection, run immidiatly and when far enough away, quickly cure the injection and run back. This will minimixe the time your injected shaman will be away from the raid and will help in DPS but also in the case of getting two injections or more in a row. Which this trick I've had as much as 10 injections in a row without breaking a sweat upto around 4-5 minutes into the fight.

Thaddius 10 man, have everyone in the raid spread out 10 yards, don't bother combining charges, just tank and spank him while spread out. We kill him this way with 3-4 minutes left before enrage. Any group should be able to kill him ten man this way. And you'll get the achievement too. :>

Here's links to armory for references, for those who want to check it out:

My main also has the red proto drake now, going to work on getting it on my alts too. :p I usually do heroics with friends and guildies so not always bring all 4. ;(

My guild is working on S2d now and Malygos. We haven't tried Malygos much yet tho, we're semi casual and usually only raid 2/3 evenings a week, which is often just enough to do the other 10 mans. :/ But with focus follow on drakes I should be able to handle myself there as well.

Did my first naxx 10 last night as a singel boxer but i know the fights from the good old 40 man naxx..

Now i went in with my elemental shaman with 1760 spell damage 18% critt and 200 in mana regen and 36 hit rating (LOL).. I only got pvp gear so my hit is quite lacking since im waiting to buy the WG head with hit to cover the pvp limit better.

I actually came out first and second each try on patchwerk even if i ran oom and the others were fully pve geared. I only managed 2200 dps and i pretty much ran OOM in the end so i had to wait for lightning bolts! :(

what numbers are others seeing on patch etc?

01-27-2009, 10:05 AM
2200sp (self buffed), 13% hit (capped), 40% or so crit, 250ish haste (exact stats= http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-sheet.xml?r=Outland&n=Caniika )

I do around 3800dps on patch average-ish

Rotation (magma totem range from boss): Magma Totem, Flame Shock, Lburst, Lb's until Lburst cd, Lb's until 1-2 sec before Lburst cd -> start at beginning

Chain Lightning isn't viable anymore on single target, with the Lightning Bolt glyph LB > CL on single target now.

Is magma totem better than wrath on fights like patchwerk? Don't the other casters get pissy if you don't drop it? They really need to fix that, it sucks having to choose between the two :(
