    Korven killing players not in front of him during Vicious Assault?

    Any idea why this is happening or how to prevent it? I have a feeling it might have to do with me being 3rd on threat (which I usually am). I am also about ~220 degrees from any tank (well out of cone range).

    Take a look at this replay: http://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/...=8&view=replay at ~3:30 in. I'm literally in the middle of all the other melee but I just die to Vicious Assault.

    Very puzzled

    Very strange, did he actually turn and face you?

    This is probably just another one of the myriad of bugs that exists in this encounter.

    This happens to us all the time, but when we were progressing on it I was never able to find anyone with this problem. One thing we believe is that he turns around to cast amber on Hisek and might hit people if assault is going off when you push hisek to 50. That wouldn't explain all our deaths, though.

    Pretty sure it happens when you are in his hit box, at least that's what we figured it was since it never happened any other way.

    If you stand too far into the middle of his hit box, the cleave hits you. You need to be on the outside half of his hitbox behind him. As a rogue, he will cleave you if you use KSp or ShS while he's doing it. Same goes for Kaz'tik.

    This is what I've noticed as well. We'd have 1-2 melee just die because he turns around for a split second and gets the cleave off.

    He doesn't cast it during assault. The only way to die from it is if you're standing in the cleave or if you're getting knocked in front of him by the aim. Both are avoidable and has nothing to do with glitches or rng. Unless it's a really new bug I've never seen anything like it in my many wipes on him.

    He sometimes turns his back for some reasons right after casting shield slam and kills melee. No idea why that happens tho even with a taunt on his face.

    We were having this problem with one of our healers constantly getting gibbed by Korven right around when he was landing on Heroic. Found out he was standing slightly near Korven's path to the tanks and would get cleaved right as he ran by despite looking like he was out of melee range. We had him change his positioning and it stopped happening.

    Actually that's exactly what happened.

    17:50:40.696 Korven the Prime begins casting Vicious Assault
    17:50:41.174 Korven the Prime gains Vicious Assault from Korven the Prime
    17:50:41.174 Korven the Prime casts Vicious Assault
    17:50:42.273 Baaloo is afflicted by Vicious Assault from Korven the Prime
    17:50:42.808 Korven the Prime casts Encase in Amber on Hisek the Swarmkeeper
    17:50:42.808 Korven the Prime creates Amber with Encase in Amber
    17:50:42.808 Korven the Prime summons Amber (Korven the Prime) with Encase in Amber
    17:50:43.100 Hisek the Swarmkeeper gains Encase in Amber from Korven the Prime
    17:50:43.181 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Zaturn Parry
    17:50:43.181 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Cric Dodge
    17:50:43.387 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Impëtus 129237 (A: 16828)
    17:50:43.477 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Hydrö 551171 (A: 161083)
    17:50:43.538 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Lolaan 766997 (O: 155526)
    17:50:43.538 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Timbersaw 486136 (A: 243597)
    17:50:43.538 Korven the Prime Vicious Assault Furyguy 499778 (A: 243597)

    The reason only 1 melee died is everyone else either avoided it or can take that hit.

    its because your in his hit box we had a bad feral who always got hit by it and either stood in front or to close the boss and would die stand back and you wont die

    it's when he casts other spells. turns and kills someone, not related to his hitbox, he just actually turns. this week I got to experience something completely new:

    Xaril the Poisoned Mind Tenderizing Strikes Keine 729489 (A: 30526) (O: 75371)

    that's his melee atk that leaves the victim to take higher damage from other mobs. however, I am a holy paladin and was standing on the outer ring. the amber pool just spawned, ran out of it but ran sideways. xaril was tanked in the middle. didn't taunt (don't even have it keybound). plus, he also didn't move at all. he just used that ability on range on me and 1 shotted me.
    bug free encounter.

    Looking at your logs, that's not so much a bug as... you died before anyone attacked him.
    Of course a healer is going to have initial threat, that's not very surprising. Welcome to the wonderful world of tanks not attacking them while they jump down .

    Yeah, I've gotten killed more than once from Xaril spawning right on top of me for an instagib. Xaril generally jumps down somewhere among the ranged. If it happens to be on you and you're the highest threat-producing healer in your raid it's RIP for you.

    Happened to us at least 4-5 times during prog, Melee who were max hit-box would just get one-shot. Very frustrating bug that still hasn't been fixed - and thanks for confirming it with logs :]

    Anyone found a work around for this? Every single attempt our DK and MW monk get hit by it despite being in the same stack as everyone else. It is without question a bug with the encounter, just need it to stop happening.
