Ok, I'll admit it, Tortos has always been my worst fight. It seems like all I do is run from turtles. Well now we're doing heroic progression again after missing people for a few weeks and I need to step it up because we're not moving on til he dies tonight. Here are the logs for last night, can any of my fellow locks with a better grasp on this fight give me some pointers?

my armory:

http://us.battle.net...n/Skýrge/simple

Some changes I think I should make (correct me if I'm wrong):

1. Save GoServ:FG for 1st bats, was force of habit to use it on the pull.

2.After double HoG on the opener, hold off till turtles are under boss then HoG,HoG,Meta,Doom all 3.

We're not getting past the first bats, will my damage pick up as the fight goes on? I've had a top 60 ranking on Iron Qon, http://www.worldoflo...3320#Skýrge��so I know I'm capable of real damage, I think I'm just kind of running amok with all the chaos of this fight. (Sorry for the epeen, but if I have to show a bad one why not a good one too? Posted Image )

Just FYI on some early pulls I had some major lag, including a full DC, I would say the last 6 or 7 pulls are pretty legit.

P.S. Where is the best spot for portal? I'm currently putting it near the left wall but after using it to escape I was having some range issues on turtles.

I guess it would help to give you our bats strat as well. Our OT is kiting them around the middle of the room while we try to AoE them down.

Before I say anything, is anyone specifically on slow duty for the whirling turtles?

We have a new mage who filled in and was rolling frost to keep them slowed, not sure if she's permanent or not.

I ask because you say all it seems you do is run from turtles. I go Affliction on this fight because if you want something done right, you gotta do it yourself. I've got the turtles moving at the speed of a sloth on Nyquil. I recommend giving it a shot and see how your raid adapts to the very managable speed the turtles move with the Curse of Exhaustion glyph. The trick is, when the turtles are making their way through Tortos, to use SB:CoEx on Tortos at that moment. That will hit all the turtles with your 70%, 15 second slow. Thing to remember is that SB:CoEx is on a separate CD from your non-SB version. If they spread out you can weave that in. You can also Drain Soul on a bat that's about to keel over for a full Soul Shard boost.

If healers are getting disrupted constantly by the turtles and can't heal the tank (thus making getting past the 1st bats a pain), then this may be a solution for you.

Also, your group doesn't seem to be, but our group lusts before the 1st set of turtles come out so that we can get them down super fast so we're ready to kick the breath. That will also help you get the other 2 turtles down fast, giving you the option of kicking one of the turtles through the bats when they're all grouped up. The bats will take increased damage from the debuff of the kicked turtle, which gives you a huge advantage.

Don't forget to have a stun rotation on the bats going as well. Weave in Capacitor Totems, Shockwave and Shadowfury whenever possible. It appears that you've got your pally tank on the bats, but I think the monk may be a better choice. Does the disorient from Flame Breath affect them? If so, that will give you an insane amount of disruption and damage mitigation. Goes without being said too, but make sure your raid continues to refresh their shields.

Thanks Omaric. Our Monk was originally on bats, they just wanted to try switching it up and see if it was any easier. I bet they switch back tonight. I will try to give affliciton a shot, seems like I'm using it a bit more recently Posted Image , anything for progression i guess. Bummer, I was finally getting good at Demo. On that note, would glyph of shadowflame (i think thats it, the 70% move debuff one) have enough uptime?

As affliction , if they're kiting the bats just use imp gosup (switches targets faster) and use SB:SoC on one of the bats each round , to prevent getting aggro just put the portal near the middle on both ends , as close as you can. have your healers use the portal if they somehow manage to get "healing aggro".

If you do manage to get corruption up on all those bats being kited your dps will skyrocket , from that point on just dot tortos + turtles , you'll have 4 shards 24/7 =p

If one of your tanks is monk as you mentioned I highly suggest kiting the bats and ignoring them. Great place holders for crit doom's, SB:SOC, F&B Immolates.. for unlimited resources regardless of spec. As mentioned, Afflictions glyphed CoEx is superior to all slows and really makes things a lot easier for your raid. You should lust at the start IMO to ensure the first wave of whirlturtles are down in a timely fashion for first breath. I also personally sacrifice opening burst and don't blow Darksoul until a few seconds before first wave comes out so that I have extra dps where it matters on that first wave.

I've never used teleport in this fight, just never seemed needed.

If you do continue to kill bats each wave, make sure you get a stun off on the bats before stomps so that your bat tank doesn't get gibbed while stunned.

Many thanks to Omaric, Khaos and Soulzar. Unfortunately we had to pug a hunter and his 80k dps was too small for us to carry.Omaric, I did like the fight much better as affliction, and all of your advice is well received. Soul you are right, with the bats properly slowed porting was not an issue and Khaos that gateway idea is great, will be using that for our healers.

I do demo.. With UVL's you can get your crit dots on the Crystals/Bats/Boss.. And your imps go UP UP UP

Immo/C. Swarm/HoG or Chaos Wave (Bats Dead)

The imps you get are retarded high with crits all around.. i don't bother with doom on crystals unless it's just like.. NO WHERE ELSE FOR CRIT DOOM.. you get it like 40 seconds or something

Againnnnnnn... use the demonic gateway if someone gets aggro , works perfectly!

Hun it's not the issue with him getting aggro.. HE is too stupid to click abilities to stop himself from dying.. he's getting treat over tanks and resto druids.. (only idea is he's haloing or something) I was more venting about him, not the fight.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      Guide:
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)

      Hello,
      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
       If you are interested, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Hi I'm looking for an active raid guild. I am not a hardcore raider but would like to continue with normal/ heroic progression. 
      I'm looking for raid time around 6pm PST / 9pm EST start. Will consider faction change for the right fit. 

      9/9 Normal 9/9 Heroic - Multiple kills

      Hey guys,
      I'm new to playing affliction lock and ranged DPS in general really. Can someone help me see why my DPS isn't where it should be? I've changed my stats around and have been playing with my legendaries and rotation but I can't seem to improve. If someone has some ideas it would be much appreciated.

      Maximum Effort is a new guild on Cenarion circle (A). I was the raid leader for my guild for a long time and we built up a strong raid team. Due to do some dis-agreements between me and the guild leader I was forced to leave. But luckly enough a lot of my team followed me! We're working to build a guild focused around team work and group progression. We love doing mythics, raids, talking and theory crafting about the game!
      We have a very strong-core raid group, capable of clearing heroic and doing some mythic but we're just missing a few people to round it out!
      Raid nights.. Tue/wed 6-830pm server (9:30-11:30 est) Off night Monday 6-830pm server (9-11:30 est)
      Looking for.. -Any and all dps specs
      - Non pally or holy priest healer!
      All raid mats and needs are covered by guild, we run personal look just for the ease of it.
      My btag is Hethrus#1504 if you have questions or wish to try out!
