As I mentioned at the end of my previous blog, our ten man got the Nausea, Heartburn, Indigestion achievement this week. I was a bit worried going into it, but we ended up getting it on our second try! Probably would have one shot it if not for a string of bad luck. This being the case, I was a bit dumb and didn’t get any of the important parts recorded… sorry! Anyway… you probably want to know how we did it!
In our setup we had two tanks and two healers. I’m not entirely convinced you can’t do this with three healers, but I guess it depends on your DPS. In our setup it was me and a holy priest… I also think a disc priest would be amazing on this fight, but any good healer should work!
Most people’s strategy for Professor Putricide involves a lot of running back and forth across the room depending on what color slime will be dropping out next. When we do this fight normally that is what we do, however for the achievement we chose to camp under the green faucet. When the green slime came out, we assumed we would probably get hit. The most important thing to remember here is to stack with your backs facing towards the wall! The reason for this is that when the green slime explodes, you will all fly in generally the same direction. If someone is facing a different direction, and flies off alone, you most likely won’t have time to re-stack on that person before the slime reaches them if they are chosen as the next target. All and all this really wasn’t that bad. Sometimes the slime didn’t even explode… and when it did, the raid was all pre-hotted and the damage was very bearable.
When the orange slime spawns you are already at nearly max distance since you are on the green side. You will still need to kite, those suckers go FAST!! Us druids can kitty-form and dash, rogues can sprint, engineers can blow their rocket boots, priests could spec into body and soul, you can enchant minor run speed… etc, etc, etc… you get the idea Any speed increase helps! Also, although the abomination was not slowing the ooze at all, he was DPSing these orange ones so they would die faster!
Other than this, all the same basics of the fight apply. Avoid flasks, avoid flying ooze, don’t stand in green puddles, etc. If you reach phase three, it is identical to the non-achievement version of the fight.
Good luck everyone!
