Accidentally posted this in the WOW raids and dungeons forum 1st but anyway...
Could anyone explain how this ability is meant to work especially with regards to how often or where kel'thuzad can use it?
I understand that when he casts it on a player it will chain TO any player close to the original target as well as FROM any player near to the original target who was also affected by it. I didn't realise he could cast the spell on a 2nd target that was over 30 yards away from the original target at the exact same time.
What basically happened was that kel'thuzad cast frost blast on the melee and because the boss moved a bit (due to tank knockback I think) 5 melee got hit as they lost their spreading a little bit. At the same time as all the melee got frost blast 1 of our hunters also got it even though he was nowhere near the melee... i'd estimate he was 30-40 yards away. All the melee survived but our hunter died (probably because the healers got overwhelmed with so many getting frost tombed at the same time). We tank kel'thuzad at the throne where he becomes active while me and the other hunter who died were on the far side of the green circle that is in the middle of the room so the frost blast deinitely shouldn't have been able to chain over to him
The most annoying thing is that we were on for immortal at the time and this frost blast death was our only death on that naxx clearance (the 4th time we've failed with 1 death now)... We really aren't getting any luck with this and losing it to what seems a bug or something very unusual is quite painful especially when it's been the only achievement we've needed for our black proto drakes for at least a month now.
I must admit that I thought Kel'thuzad did frost blast on 2 completely seperate targets every time he cast it but people in guild said this wasn't the case and that he should only do it on 1 target (unless it chains to another player).
Here's wht I could find in the wws log: (I edited names ofc)
0:00'30.595 A is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724120
0:00'30.595 B is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724121
0:00'30.595 C is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724122
0:00'30.595 D is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724123
0:00'30.595 E is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724124
0:00'30.595 F is afflicted by Frost Blast. #724125
All of the above are melee except A who is the hunter and was at least 25-30 yards away from all the other players in the log when he got hit with the frostblast.
