View Full Version : Black Knight Phase 2

How the hell do I keep the army of dead aggro on my pally? I have tried stopping all dps and trying to gather them up with consecrate, holy wrath, ect.. without success. they keep running to my alts and exploding. My setup is pally 3 mages and druid healer. Nothing I can do will keep the army of dead aggro on my tank.

I was never able to do it. I keep several of them on the paladin - I thought it was chain lightning causing the aggro on my shaman, but when I switched to lightning bolt only I still got the aggro.

Ultimately I spread the shaman out about 15 yards and just dealt with a few of the ghouls beating on my shaman, and healing when necessary. I also thunderstormed them away a few times.

I try to get the black knight down as low as possible, then I run back and make my shaman follow while I finish off the black knight. All the ghouls start to explode, so I just run away with the whole group. At that point I heal everyone to full because phase 3 is even worse - I save bloodlust and all my cooldowns for this phase.

Ultimately, I don't have a fool proof method for this guy, my final kill definitely had some luck involved. I'm in mostly furious pvp gear on the shaman, and my dps without healing the tank and without bloodlust/etc. is 2.6-3k depending on RNG. I imagine I'm pulling only 2k during these phases because of how much I have to heal my tank (she is much less geared than the shaman).

I'm sure there is a better method, because if you just try to burn through phase 2 with all your cooldowns, you will get your ass kicked in phase 3 unless you somehow have a decent amount of mana left (I sure didn't).

You might have to use an AOE strategy with that group. I tried it with my mixed group with little success, but with three mages you might be ok to do it.

You can kill the ghouls before they explode from what I have read.

Try hugging the tank with your group when the army of the dead are being brought up.
Get the consecrate down and the holy wrath, then when it looks like the tank has aggro back them up and blast away.
