I’m finally done with all normal dungeons tanked =)
I tried Halls of Lightning on lvl 78 with Gorilla on 77, with a group at the same level. It didn’t work out too well. The first boss is truly the hardest and he hits very hard. This time around we skipped all the CC on the first boss and I just tanked all three, we killed the adds first and then the boss himself. He still hits quite hard so be wary.
The second boss was a pure pushover with our group, we pulled the adds away from him, and kited them a bit and killed them. They explode if they are too close to each other or something according to the healer who was the only one that had been there before.
The third boss was just irrirating. Tank and spank, and then he turns into all these small blobs all the time that you just run away from. Wasn’t even threatening those blobs.
The last boss was interesting, but easy. All you had to do was run in and stand close (you can stand so you can shoot him), and then he does a very short range AoE that you run out from (disengage). I moved my pet out, it was only 5 yards away, and still didn’t get hit. And even so, with the -75% AoE damage to it, I doubt anything horrible would happen if it just continues to stand there building threat.
There’s one thing in the instance that can be tricky. There’s a hallway with statues that come to life. Since they come from all directions it’s hard to get aggro on them all. One side your pet can take, use misdirection on those behind you. And try to stay back from the next section, or you will get feared into that and you will have yet another 1 or even 2 packs on you. I know, because it happened to us 😉 The druid popped bear and helped me tank them, and they were never really that threatening, just hard to control, that’s all.
Feels so nice to have completed them all. Now on to heroics and raids. =)
