PostSubject: Firebrand and Stormcaller Boss 2   Tue Apr 10, 2012 11:02 pm

Group Composition:
    2 Tanks
    2 Healers
    4 DPS


Attacks (Firebrand):
    Frontal cone AOE
    Fire Debuff
    Ranged
    Missile Launch


Attacks (Stormcaller):
    AOE pulse
    Damage debuff
    Ranged
    Lightning Pillar

Mechanics:
    Bosses can not be respositioned
    Adds will spawn to the right and left with a shield over them, players need to get under the shield and kill the adds
    Don't stand in red circles
    Yellow beam needs to be cleansed to fall off

Story Mode Strategy:


    To begin split the Ops into two groups, each containing 1 tank, 1 healer, 2 dps. These groups are assigned left and right sides. Firebrand is on the left, Stormcaller on the right.

    Both tanks need to be faced away from the raid, they both have frontal cleave effects with a good range.

    Both groups DPS the target on their assigned side. At the start of the fight Firebrand will shoot rockets at the raid causing initial AOE damage, be ready.

    Periodically through the fight Stormcaller will cast "Double Destruction" (4 seconds) which puts a debuff on the current target. The debuff causes all damage from Stormcaller to be doubled. Initially we had planned a tank swap for this phase. With more discussion with other raiders we discovered that the debuff has 2 parts. It will hit 2 people closest to Stormcaller, if there are not two people in range it will hit the same person twice. IF it hits the same person twice they will be launched in to the air and take severe damage.

    To combat this, position the DPS (or one DPS and one Heals) on Stormcaller but to the side (not in front of him). When he begins casting the two move in front of Stormcaller and the tank steps back. Once the debuff is on them, the tank moves forward again (and they move around the side) to continue where he left off. In this way there is no need for a tank swap.

    NOTE: You must be in front of Stormcaller to receive the debuff, it is not the two closest people period, the effect is in a cone between his front cannons.

    Firebrand will also debuff his tank causing extra damage - this might require a tank swap at higher difficulties, but in Story mode can be healed through if the tank makes use of his cooldowns.

    Stormcaller will drop lightning pillars on random people in the raid, make sure to move away from the lightning radius. Firebrand will also periodically continue to put red circles on the ground and drop rockets, don't stand in the red circles.

    TIP: Firebrand doesn't put red circles on himself or Stormcaller, so melee should be safe as long as they're fighting on top of the bosses.


    Firebrand has a third rocket mechanic, he will place a yellow beam and reticle on a person, this needs to be cleansed and that person can them safely move out of the area. Firebrand will target this area with rockets shortly after the beam appears.

    Three times through the fight there will be a prompt "Activating Defensive Systems" - at this point adds will spawn beneath shield generators to the left and right of the field. DO NOT attack the shield generators (no AOE either). Each group should take cover beneath their respective shield and kill the adds while missiles are dropping from the sky.

    NOTE: The tank on Stormcaller will NOT be able to take cover, Stormcaller will be dropping lightning pylons the whole time the missile volley is happening and the tank will need to position them away from the rest of the group.


    When one of the bosses dies the other will enrage, so they need to be killed closely together.

Quick Recap:
    Split into 2 groups, each group takes a side (left/right)
    Face Firebrand into the wall (or away from the raid)
    Don't stand in red circles
    Tank gets out of the way when Stormcaller is casting debuff
    Kill adds and stand under shield when it spawns
