The "max FR" gear rule seems to be falling into disuse. The BA is random and will knock out your healers so in essence you are on a timer vs Vael. In our guild the ranged ignore the FR gear (except for non-sacrificial changes) and just go for all-out dps; i understand other guilds do too. --Sabelaide 04:37, 25 October 2006 (EDT)

In our guild we have rogues in a group its 1 priest that spams Prayer of Healing, this means that rogues dont have to use any FR at all --  D ♠ T ♣ C ♦ I ♥ WP 11:37, 13 January 2007 (EST)


Mindcontrolling the Spellbinders to get the +83 Fireresist Buff has been declared an exploit by at least one GM: [1]

Somebody posted that screenshot on the forums and by : "blue" Community managers it's been labelled as "not an exploit" and using game mechanics, the technique is actually encouraged. That 1 GM must have been a Rooky. Its nothing to worry about. why on earth else would they put a +83 FR buff on a mob with a 1 hour cooldown in the first place? i wouldnt be suprised it the buff shouldnt stack with auras though.

In fact I've read about some change in 1.11 where blizzard makes this buff vanish upon leaving blackrock spire (i.e. "zoning"). Can't say if its a hoax, though.--Thundor 09:28, 26 April 2006 (EDT)
Disconfirmed. It still stays through zoning as of 6th of August 2006, so no such change has been made yet. --Asherett 21:35, 7 August 2006 (EDT)

Is Vaelastrasz the Corruped immune to fire? Shouldn't this be stated explicitly? Would be interesting to see more mob resist information throughtout. GLOCK [2] is a nice resource for this. --Asherett 21:41, 7 August 2006 (EDT)

Incorrect Information Removed

I removed the part about the Fire Buff not working as of 1.12, it most certainly continues to persist after exiting the instance.

I also adjusted the amount given to reflect the fact the actual value of the buff depends on the level of the Spellbinder that casts it.


Weren't chain cleaves removed in a recent patch? Or was Vaelastrasz exempt from this? -- Dark T Zeratul 06:34, 4 September 2007 (UTC)
