My first assignment for folks regarding this fight is this:

Go do Wintergrasp and Strand of the Ancients a few times to get used to the siege vehicles. Some of their abilities / targeting mechanisms are very similar to the vehicles we're using in this fight.

Hope folks have at least had a chance to visit either Wintergrasp or Strand of the Ancients and get a sense of the vehicles we'll be using in this fight.

I need volunteers for the five jobs.

Siege Engine Driver (2)

Demolisher Driver (2)

Chopper Driver (2)

Siege Engine Passenger / Gunner (2)

Demolisher Passenger / Gunner (2)

Eventually, for achievements, everyone will want to be able to do every job. But for now, and focusing on hard modes, I want people to find one role in which they are most comfortable.

Haven't heard boo from anyone as to roles they'd prefer to do in this fight. Please let me know.

Here is the excellent Strat Fu page. Please read it closely as you decide what role you would like.

Though the UI says it was hard mode, this is actually normal mode, despite their getting the achievements. Watch on HD -- very informative.

I think I can wear maybe 4 ilev 213 items from various sets. I assume the people driving vehicles should be the people with highest ilev gear, to get the best vehicle stats. Maybe it doesn't really matter. I have no idea. I don't care what I do. I support whatever lets us get past this fight as quickly as possible.

Given the ilev mechanics, it seems the fastest way to do the hard modes with this fight would be to farm the rest of the instance. But maybe .. eh .. guess we'll see.

Just a follow up on the ilevel / vehicle stats conversion. It has some weirdnesses:

1) your character must be wearing a shirt. Yes, that's weird.
2) Trinkets and offhand frills do not count (that means an i213 1hander is better than a i200 staff)\

EDIT: Zy, my naxx never seemed as epic. Probably lacked enough Frenchies.

I crafted all the ilevel 213 Icebane pieces for myself. I can craft for our platewearers as well.

From reading the strat, I would assume that Demolisher passengers are melee DPS. If this is correct, then that would imply Zyger and myself, or Soj and Arroll using secondary specs.

Edit: We can add Zandar or Ned (is secondary spec is Feral) to that list.

no, jordi -- spec is irrelevant here, except when you're flying up on the leviathan's back, or if you're a healer and in the chopper running around healing people -- neither of which is necessary for a normal-mode win.

your role is determined by the vehicle / seat you're in, like Ley-Guardian Eregos in Oculus.

Oh, sorry. Sleepiness fart.

I plan to do passengers (in a full raid, which we do not yet have) as 2 dps and 2 healers.

Each time we, uh, mount him, we'll send 1 healer and 1 dps.

Since I haven't had anyone at all volunteer for any positions, I don't know who's doing what yet.

I'll volunteer to be the healer who gets launched onto FL's back, so that makes me a demolisher passenger.
