    Rotface ooze kiting help

    So, our guild have been making some progress on icc, and weve come to Rotface. We got a Warrior tanking the boss, and a paladin tanking the Ooze. However at 60 - 50 % we always wipe. Reason: We dont got enough space. And on top of that the ooze wierdly seem to reset aggro and attack healers sometimes.

    You guys got any tips? Thanks!

    Use a hunter to kite the ooze.

    If you're a paladin kiting the ooze, easy. When the ooze is about to form, drop a consecrate. Soon as it forms, bop it with a Shield of the righteous and start kiting it.

    Use your avenger's shield to get it on cooldown and thwap an exorcism down. That should hold aggro from any healer aside from a Paladin with righteous fury on. It's about 20k in threat, which no healer will pull no matter how hard they heal.

    Just get a hunter to MD the ooze to the kiter and make sure the kiter kites along the side side of the room.
    And the green slime that comes doesnt hurt the kiter (if it's a tank) so it doesnt matter if he runs through, no big deal.

    Easy done, i'm doing it myself when we're on him.

    We've had some pretty bad people trying to kite the oozes and I always end up having to do it

    Your paladin was probably being bad and not using exorcism, dropping a consecrate, or hitting it as it spawned, and trying to hold aggro with just avenger's shield, like one of ours tried to do. Get him to know all his abilities

    On tenmans I tank and here is how I keep aggro. When i get a big ooze I taunt it. Then run along the putter edge. Do not get to far away or it cuts through the raid. Standing in the green crap isn't an issue for a tank. I can freedom myself if nessisary. If a healer gets high on threat, taunt again. You can literaly only taunt them and never lose aggro. I never use con or exo and I'm never close enough to judge. Occasionaly I throw my shield at it out of boredom.

    i kite it as a DK, im and engineer, so i kite it around the outside where the green puddles spawn. if need be i use my AMS and engineer boots to run through the poison while just spamming icy touch on it. making sure not to get hit by it, doing so will get me one shot.

    when someone gets the disease they find me and get cleansed somewhere between me and the ooze, not to close as the tick from the ooze might kill them and spawn another ooze.

    also incase of emergency i have a few paladins with me macro'd to HoF for the sticky ooze. rinse repeat, done. I kite because once during a wipe our hunter died i took over and did better than he did. that and my tank gear is too bad to tank the boss lol.

    I'm the Paladin tank for our guild, and i also kite the Ooze on Rotface. It's not incredibly difficult provided your raiders do as asked and don't drop it in a weird place.

    Running out of space, i'm not sure how you mean. You're basically kiting it around the circle on the floor and calling out when it's exploding and the missiles are up in the air. You should NEVER EVER EVER get hit by the big ooze. You SHOULD NOT be tanking it. It NEEDS to be kited simply because even on 258+ gear (as well as several ICC25 pieces), it'll still hit me for 38k if it catches up with me. It's worth running through the ooze puddles if you're kiting it, simply because you don't want to get hit by it, and at the same time, you don't want to be bringing it near the raid. The 4K ticks (before absorbs) every 1-2 seconds are way better than the 38k hits every 3 seconds.

    You want a healer assigned to healing the offtank/kiter as well as the person with the infection. As time goes on, the infection gets faster and faster and starts to hurt a lot more. It's not the easiest fight, but it's also not that difficult in comparison to something like Putricide.

    What kind of Healers? Restoration Shamans? If yes, tell them to not use Healing Stream Totems.
    We figured this out in our 10man group in the first week when Plagueworks were open. Our Shaman _always_ aggroed the oozes, so we tried to find out why.. it was his stupid totem.
    If it's not a Shaman, then just do what Shakatoss said; have a Hunter MD the ooze/s.

    Re: Rotface ooze kiting help

    My guild's last Rotface kill had a Druid tank kiting the Oozes, quite literally all he did was fairy fire and taunt, and we still managed to one-shot it, and I wouldn't call the druid tank to be the most well geared and skilled.

    Simply a matter of the tank paying attention to where the big ooze is (And any rogue big oozes that get formed near the raid) and using their ranged abilities on it whenever possible. Paladin tanks definately have the advantage here, but it's really more about situational awareness and the rest of the raid handling their oozes properly.
