Last week, we failed miserably in our first encounter with Chimaeron, hehe.
The success of the Chimaeron fight will rely heavily on how good your healing team is. While some say the fight is healing intensive, I beg to differ.
‘Healing intensive’ would mean healers pushing their limits and exhausting their mana. I personally find it a fight where healers have to control themselves from overhealing to be able to efficiently heal this fight. Or else they will run out of mana.
I do agree, however, that the Chimaeron fight is definitely a healer’s fight. It’s actually a very simple fight but a lot will depend on everyone’s reaction time, especially the healers.
Chimaeron raid composition: 2 tanks, 3 melee, 2 range, 3 healers.
Having a druid would be a WIN, but if you don’t have a druid available, make sure you have atleast 2 healers who have HoT/AoE healing capabilities.
1. While the Bile-O-Tron is ONLINE, the raid should stay spread out, atleast 6 yards apart. Only keep raid members above 10,000HP, except the tank which should be healed normally.
2. While the Bile-O-Tron is OFFLINE, the raid should all move and stack on top of each other. Top off raid members during this time. Best time to cast AoE heals.
3. Tanks should taunt off each other every three stacks. The off-tank should taunt when Chimaeron casts Double Attack and the main tank should taunt back after.
4. At 20%, the boss must be burned quickly as possible because healing is severely reduced. (In fact, I suggest that healers barely heal at all during this phase. Better to help DPS Chimaeron down.)
