    AQ40- Viscidus

    Any enhancement shaman out there able to break him when hes been frozen? I'm trying to farm the new pets and its impossible as ele so i'm thinking about speccing enhancement and grabbing a couple cheap daggers if anyone else has done it.

    I cant say for sure but ive heard of people used to break him back in 4.3 with sum super fast daggers and stacking haste but apparently in 5.1 hes been nerfed to make it easier to solo so yes I think it wud be pretty easy for you to do as enhancement nowadays

    Enhancement? Easily. When it comes time to Shatter, pop Wolves, BL, 2x WF, and melee the crap outta him.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    No need. He freezes on timer or maybe on % now. NOT from frost attacks.

    I think there was a hot fix today or the other day. I know when 5.1 came out on Tuesday, I attempted it and I couldn't do it. We could barely do it with 2 people as well. It actually took quite a few tries. But I jumped in with someone today and he was a joke. So the hotfix must have fixed him. Which leads me to believe solo is very much possible now.

    And is it true that you don't need anything frost to freeze him anymore? That sure wasn't the case on Tuesday when I tried. Must be the hotfix then.

    You can pull this off as Elemental solo, now, barely. It still relies on number of melee hits, though I'm not sure how frost damage was changed (I was using Frostbrand Weapon, Frost Shock, and Unleash Elements just in case). Once he freezes, pop your Earth Elemental and keep auto-attacking. You'll have just enough hits between the two of you to shatter him.

    It took me forever but that was because I tried it with my Fire Elemental first, and that was a mistake; the FET has a few spells he uses, and spells don't contribute to shatter; he unfroze then.

    Regardless, I was Elemental and pulled it off last night solo, which is the point.

    As Elemental:
    Use a fast weapon (1.6 worked for me)
    Frostbrand / Frost shock on CD
    once he's frozen, pop EM+Bl+Earth Elemental

    Worked for me.
    Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
    Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.


    Never assume an ogre's stupid, that's when they'll get you.

    Actually, I did, I got the mindbender and the viscidus globule, though Veklor didn't drop his for me this week.

    Which is good, because that Viscidus fight is incredibly annoying and until I get my monk to 90 and geared, I don't want o keep swapping my offspec around, since half the time I end up healing here and there (I'm often the swing healer if we want to go to three heals in our 10-man).

    Actually he freezes on frost attacks.

    At the OP, as enhancement this guy is incredibly easy. I just went in with a normal enh setup with elemental force enchant on both weapons, no frostbrand. Spcced Unleashed Fury and saved it for when he froze for the extra auto attacks from windfury. Didn't bother trying as elemental since it seems to be more trouble than its worth

    Just did this guy tonight. Wow what a joke it was. Frostbrand/Frostshock and he was frozen in the first 30 seconds. Emps on the other hand......

  16. #16
    whole place is jokes. viscidus is really not hard at all. Dps him down to 1 health put frostbrand on weapon spam frost shock on cd. when he freeze just auto attack with fast weapon 1.6 speed is plenty, as ele i only use earth elemental and didnt even need to lust.

    emps just do work on the caster guy until the melee guy comes over lust fire ele ascendance spiritwalker grace (cuz melee guy knocks you around) and make sure u hit melee guy once so u can get loot. you only need like 40k dps to out damage the heals. took under a minute for the fight.

    you actually only need about 16k dps to beat the enrage timer after the last nerf. tho it's a 10min enrage iirc

    Actually he's not. I did him 4 times. 3 out of 4 (dk) I didn't use any frost oil/enchant/attack and he freezes perfectly fine. Go and try before you post something you didn't try/know.

    Done it on monk/warrior/shaman so far and he's never frozen without being hit. My friend has done it on a shadowpriest and he just wouldn't freeze until he started spamming him with mind spike. So unless something changed through the night, your talking shit. So don't post crap when the other 99% of posts both here, wowhead and everywhere else agree that he still needs hit by frost.

    Edit: Since you seemed so adamant that you were right and everyone else was wrong I went and did a little test and can thoroughly say, you're full of shit. I've just spent the last 15 minutes auto-attacking Viscidus using no abilities other then Death Strike to stay alive and he didnt even try to freeze once.

    Here's two SS's of both the chat and his hp (and me dead eventually) along with the time in the top right corner. You can see not once in the entire 15 minute duration did he even try to freeze up.





    So next time, go and try properly before you post and and claim people are wrong.

    I was able to kill him with Val'anyr with Frostbrand. When he freezes over, just pop BL + Fire Elemental and auto hit him, like shooting fish in a barrel
