Welcome to Kurn’s Q&A! This week seems to be focused on heroic Putricide and the Unbound Plague. And no wonder people are searching for information on those. The heroic Professor Putricide encounter is one of the more difficult ones I’ve encountered this expansion, primarily because you need to heal a lot of damage, do a lot of damage and avoid a lot of damage. It kind of sucks that way, but I think you really feel good about yourself when you get ‘er done.
1) “unbound plague third phase?”
Oh yes. Indeed. It’ll spawn somewhere in phase 3, probably about 30 seconds in or so. And it’s NASTY, trying to pass that off, while dodging goo, slime puddles and OH, doing damage to the boss or healing the LIVING CRAP OUT OF THE RAID.
2) “parry haste” “heroic saurfang”
Nope! Check out this site for a confirmed list of who has parry haste enabled or disabled.
What you’re probably witnessing and thinking is a parry haste is his Frenzy. He’ll Frenzy at about 25%.
3) “avr in 3.3.5”
Gone! Or, at least, broken. Say bye to pretty pictures on the ground and amazing radiuses like those for Unbound Plague!
4) “can you pass unbound plague while bubbled?”
I know you can GET Unbound Plague while bubbled. So when it comes to passing it, I would presume so.
5) “does divinity work on judge of light”
Not the way you think it does. Check out my experiment here.
6) “how to see unbound plague without avre”
With great difficulty? ;)
No, seriously, there’s an animation for it. It’s a black, swirling cloud that you can see pretty clearly in this TankSpot video.
Note that this probably requires you to turn up your particle density. I play with my particle density all the way down and don’t see this at *all*.
7) “ignoring unbound plague”
You don’t exactly want to ignore it, because it will kill you if you do. After about 10 seconds, pass it off to someone. Do not take it back, due to the fact that you’ll have a debuff on you that will cause more damage if you get the plague again. In a 25-man scenario, though, it’s easy to go through several attempts without ever picking up the plague. There are just a lot of other targets available. It’s probably the one heroic mode that might actually be easier on 25-man than on 10-man, although 10-man still gives you plenty of room to maneuver. Maybe we’ll call it even.
8) “seal of light vs. seal of wisdom and icc 3.3.3”
9) “tightening waistband vs lonely noble holy”
Given the 10-man regular version of Tightening Waistband, the 10-man heroic version of Tightening Waistband and the Belt of the Lonely Noble, the choice is clear: 10m-heroic TW has more haste. If you’re more of a FoL paladin already at 676 haste, go for the Belt of the Lonely Noble for the extra crit and loss of mp5. Of course, Belt of the Lonely Noble is BOE and is a solid piece anyways.
10) “will bubble remove emerald vigor”
This is actually a wonderful question. Emerald Vigor and Twisted Nightmares are technically *debuffs*. I don’t tend to bubble during the Dreamwalker encounter, though. I think I might have done so once and I’m pretty sure I would have noticed if I lost my stacks. So I’ll say no, it won’t. But take that with a grain of salt.
