    i woudl advise against this because it can bug out where you are stuck in the floor and get chain dc'd ...i had to spam spacebar at log on just to get out of it...but it lagged so hard i ended up in Lei Shen's Room.

    Gastropod gauntlet is awesome. The only people who would want to skip are those who die in it every time. And they die because they are terrible.

    No they die because it's boring as fuck and not fun at all. It's not awesome. It's shitty trash that can kill you if you don't put your full attention on it.

    The Snail gauntlet makes me lol. I enjoy it. Don't blame Blizzard on this.
    Blizzard do not destroy Jaina Proudmoore's character. Make her who she once was, not full of rage and vengeance.,If you are curious about me or about my writing aspirations, feel free to pst me. Paladin-Sorcerer at your service! http://us.battle.net/wow/en/characte...htsongg/simple

    I can confirm that this trick has been hotfixed. SWIM used this method all last night, but today you get teleported before you can reach the edge of the waterfall.

    Hotfixed for Europe at least, you get ported back.

    I know I shouldn't be sad about it, but I am really. Would have been nice if Blizzard could compensate in reducing the ridiculous amount of thrash, but ah well.

    Hardly, honestly. I want to skip it cause I don't particulalry enjoy watching another moron die and wasting time ressing them. That thrash takes forever with LFR.

    However, on our regular runs it can be quite fun. Pull snail, pull 2 spiders, and put on your best trollface.

    That trash is really not a big deal, and it does provide an opportunity to get another beer.

    No, they die because they are terrible. Gastropod is easy to avoid. If your attention is lacking don't queue for LFR or raid period.

    So wasting your real raids time is a-ok but having to "rez morons" in LFR bothers you?

    I expect things to be remedial in LFR. in reg raids you can screw around on the bench and be sat for someone who doesn't waste time.

    The snail doesn't follow "rules" that any trash mob I can remember in 3-4 years does. Is there some other trash mob that just "eats" you?

    In general, people are not expecting to die instantly when a mob comes within 1-2 yards of them. Yes, it's easy to avoid. However, people are not used to having to avoid proximity with mobs in WoW.

    When did you attempt this? Cause a few days ago, we skipped it. Think it was last Wednesday. We did get ported, but then we figured out, that we could kinda run into the wall, druids could use Displacer Beast and our Lock got past with the wall trick. Then we just summoned the rest. But not sure if it's been completely fixed though.

    Yes, there's usually about 4 hours of waiting--maybe 3 if you're lucky. Has to take another 4 hours to clear, unless you decide to do the last boss, where the 10-12 hour estimate begins to sound about right.

    I don't think this trash is worth skipping particularly with an exploit. Mind you, if I could skip the bridge boss, I'd be all for that. It boggles the mind, it defies common sense, that they haven't nerfed that yet. The trash here is particularly awful and they deserve all the hate they get for it. IF they are going to have all this trash the very least they could do is up the trash drop rate for bosses past the first one.

    Skipping Ji-Kun trash is an awesome trick... if you don't mind having half of your raid disconnect and not be able to log back in.

    AQ40 slime trash. They can also just "eat" you (which is also 1-shot for melee).

    As I said, we did it less than a week ago. If it's been fixed in the mean time, then w/e. Avoiding death isn't hard, as long as you open your eyes and don't pull everything at the same time tbh.

  17. #77
    So... it has been fixed for sure?

    This thread popped up last Tuesday and we were able to skip just fine when we got to him that night.
