25-man Strategy

Gluth is one of the more difficult encounters in the instance from an execution standpoint. You will want two tanks and a paladin (any spec though protection is best).

The main tank should run up the pipe first, pick up Gluth and drag him all the way to the far door so as to avoid the Zombie Chow. Warriors are ideal as they can berserker rage to avoid Gluth's terrifying roar. The two tanks should taunt Gluth off each other every 15 seconds to mitigate the effects of mortal wound.

Zombie Chows will spawn constantly in the back of the room near the pipe from the grates. The ranged DPS and healers should stack up on each other ~30 yards from Gluth to aid the Paladin in kiting the zombies. The Paladin should drop consecration on the stacked raid as often as possible while kiting the zombies around the back of the room in order to gain aggro on the Zombie Chow who should make straight for the healers. The Paladin cannot kite the zombies alone however, you will need assistance in slowing the adds:

  • Hunters can slow by using frost traps as often as possible
  • Mages can root using Frost Nova, or slow with Cone of Cold, or Improved Blizzard
  • Warlocks can stun with Shadowfury
  • Warriors can slow with Piercing Howl or Thunderclap, and can stun with Shockwave (if prot)
  • Paladins can stun with Holy Wrath
  • Shamans can drop Earthbind Totem

Given that most of the above abilities have a coolown, it will probably be necessary to use a combination of methods. The Paladin will need a dedicated healer.

As soon as Gluth casts Decimate, you will have a few seconds to heal the current tank before Gluth kills him. All of the zombies in the room will stop attacking and make straight for Gluth, the entire raid MUST slow, root, snare, stun and above all kill all of them before they reach Gluth. Use whatever AoE abilities you have.

Keep this up for a few decimates and Gluth should be dead.
