Raids and Instances MC Boss # 5 - Baron Geddon
Posted by tweetie on Sunday, August 28, 2005 (11:18:36) (568 reads)


What does Baron Geddon do?

  • Flame Melee - the flame based melee attack is fairly weak.
  • Point blank area affect (PBAOE) - this is a pulsing effect that increases the damage to you the longer you are in it. The first pulse hits for about 200, the last for over 2000. It looks like a warlock doing hellfire.
  • Ignite Mana (Magic) - a debuff that is cast on players that will remove 400 mana and 400 life per tick so long as the person with the debuff has mana. This effect is useless on rogues and warriors but must be dispelled on everyone else immediately. It can be dispelled by Paladins or Priests.
  • Living Bomb - Any player in the raid can become a living bomb. After 10 seconds, the player will explode taking 3000+ damage, and sending them airborn which will also cause a lot of damage to the player. Anyone in a radius of the explosion will also take 3000+ damage. If you have the bomb you must run towards the outer walls. This allows you to get away from the rest of the raid so you don't kill them, and puts a ceiling over your head to minimise the fall damage. If you do not move out of the way, this has the ability to cause a wipe, as you blow up your raid party. You will know you are the bomb by the swirling affect around your body. Alerts will also pop up on your screen in raid and tells.

Positioning & Pull

  • The raid forms a big circle around the centre of Garr's room, and Baron gets pulled into here.
  • You will be positioned according to group. Stay with your group (unless you are the bomb).
  • The MT takes up position in the centre of the room. A campfire will be setup to indicate the point.
  • A hunter pulls Baron Geddon into the room using their pet.

The Fight

  • After a hunter pulls Baron Geddon into the room, the MT engages immediately. The MT will keep Baron Geddon in the middle of the room, with the rest of the raid around him.
  • Full DPS is called after the MT has established aggro.
  • Melee can go in to damage Baron Geddon, however they must immediately move out of the way when he begins to pulsate.
  • Baron Geddon's aggro table is reset immediately after he pulsates, so it's important for the MT to use a ranged shot to keep Baron Geddon's attention.
  • Pallies and (priests without pallies in their group) must dispell the Ignite Mana debuff straight away from their groups.
  • When a player has the bomb, they must run away from the group, towards the outer walls. See damage minimising techniques below.
  • When Baron Geddon hits about 5%, he will try to do a "Final server for Ragnaros" and do a high damage blast wave. The idea is to burn him down incredibly fast before he does this.
  • If/when the MT becomes the bomb, he remains in place. All melee must move away from him. Priests needs to shield the MT and cast renew. Druids must cast rejuvenate. All healers must constantly heal the MT during this period to keep him alive.

From a class point of view

Druids
  • Druids should be healing the MT as main priority.
  • Heal your group if the MT's health is stable.
  • If you see a party member with the bomb, cast Rejuvenate on them.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
  • Cast Rejuvenate on yourself.
  • Change into cat form, as this will minimise the fall damage.
Hunters
  • Hunters are part of the DPS group.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
  • Hope a priest casts shield on you.
Mages
  • Mages are part of the DPS group.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
  • Cast Fire Ward and Slow fall.
  • If you are a frost specced mage, you can Ice Block. This will remove the living bomb effect from you.
  • Use Cold Snap and then Ice Block if you get the bomb a second time.
Paladins
  • Should have Fire Resist Aura up.
  • Immediately dispell all mana users in your group. This is your main job.
  • You will also need to heal the MT when you are not dispelling.
  • There will be approximately 2 out of combat rezzers assigned. Healers and then casters get priority on rezzing when needed. Watch for any living bombs.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Divine shield will remove the bomb effect from you.
  • If you get it a second time, run to the outer wall, and cast Blessing of Protection on yourself. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
Priests
  • Healing the MT is a priority for all Priests, as healers may get the bomb and be taken out of commission. If you have time, you can heal your party members.
  • Dispel Ignite mana the second you get it.
  • If you see someone with the living bomb in your party, hit them with PW:Shield and Renew.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
  • Shield yourself.
  • Also cast renew onto yourself.
  • Cast levitate to avoid the fall damage.
Rogues
  • Rogues are part of the DPS group.
  • Avoid the PBAOE.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Avoid the MT at all costs.
  • Safe fall will minize your fall damage.
Warlocks
  • Warlocks are part of the DPS group.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Stay away from the OOC rezzers.
  • Hope a priest casts Shield on you.
Warriors
  • If you are not MT, you will be DPS.
  • Avoid the PBAOE.

Surviving the bomb:

  • Run to the outer wall. Avoid the MT at all costs.
  • Your HP alone is enough to help you survive.
