Why do you have to beat the enrage?
I mean he still won't kill you.
The fact that a few people in this thread are under the impression that Fury Ward is actually absorbing real hits from Chim is just sad.
Just want to clarify a few things regarding the absorb mechanics of Chim.
The shield does not absorb the difference between current health and 10000, but in fact its the difference between current health and 1. After all, the latter difference is the damage you are supposed to take should you not have a shield on.
With that said, the so called bug actually came from the order in which damage is calculated. When the boss dishes out a hit, it first checks the player's health. If health is below 10k then the damage is dealt as normal without finkle's mixture. Same applies if health is greater than the actual hit. But if health is less than the hit but above 10k, then it first uses finkle's mixture to absorb the surplus, effectively reducing the hit down to current health minus 1. Only after this reduction does the system then checks for any absorption effects from the player. If no absorption effects, the damage is dealt, ie, the player takes current health minus 1 as damage. If there is an absorption effect, then the damage will become absorbed. Double hits just counts as 1 hit after another and follows the same rule.
So for example if you have 12000 hp, and put on a shield that can absorb 75k, When the boss does a hit, the system first uses finkle's mixture to reduce to hit down to 11999 damage. And then since you have a shield, that damage becomes absorbed, and your shield can absorb 63001 more damage.
Update from before. I've gained 2 levels and a few quest/dungeon items.
I assume it'd be easy enough to solo Kael currently, yes?

I'm not trying downgrade his accomplishment, I just feel that so many people throw around the 'world first' tag on everything they do these days.
This game THRIVES on personal and group accomplishments. Being the first to do it is a big deal to LOTS of players. Just because you don't have an interest in it doesn't mean others don't.
You might be into achieves, and another player might be into collecting all the pets. Others might be into soloing content first, or making gladiator.
My point is, if you're the first to do it, brag your butt off. You deserve it!
Did you even read my post?
Managed to solo LK 10 normal last night. Felt pretty good, expecially because I had tried quite a few specs to do it. Destruction was terrible, ended up swapping to demo with soul link/harvest life and 2/5 tier 5 (thank god I saved them pieces). Wiped like 15-18 times with that spec because I either got picked up by a valkyr, then I remembered I could ofcourse use my teleport to avoid the falling and after that I found out our threat drop changes into a taunt... I really should go through my spellbook more often.
Some more wipes caused by necrotic plague (stacks of 10-12) raping me coming off dieing ghouls. Then found out I could flap my wings to knock them back just before they die, learn 2 play issue I guess.
So that was my first ICC 10 normal solo run, sucks that I needed help to do Valithria but oh well. Next week ill do ICC 10 heroic. Is recording with fraps high enough quality for such things?
2x two handed mace as loot, bitch please. Having some serious fun soloing old content !
