Magmaw 25Heroic.. DK? Who Needs A DK When You Have A Fire Mage ?!?

Yep, as the title says – You dont need a Death Knight for Kiting the parasites on Magmaw 25 Heroic !

Our resident Fire Mage took on the hefty task of kiting the adds throughout the encounter, and it has to be said he did a damn good job of it, blinking and dodging the ignition fire on the ground.  We all know Mages are aggro machines so keeping and gaining aggro on the Parasites was pretty much a breeze for him. Lots of Blast Wave, Flamestrike spam and then Blink if the adds got too close.

Again we used the ‘stacking up on melee’ strategy with just 6 ppl standing out which consisted of Myself, The Mage, 3 x Hunters and a Resto Shaman. With at least 6 ppl standing out you are guaranteed the Pillar of Flame will spawn ‘outside’ rather than on the melee.

We downed him on our 2nd attempt, and as the bubbling disc priest of the raid looking after the kiter i have to say it was a lot easier keeping the Mage up than the DK we used the previous time lol !

Now, the bad news… Not expecting the Mage kiting to actually work out – none of us were prepared with FRAPS or WOL !  /epic fail.   We will be fully prepared next time tho !!

So next time someone in your raid says Magmaw 25 heroic isnt doable without a Frost DK – you can send them here !!

Ciao for now 🙂
