Getting through the Plagueworks of Icecrown Citadel in "World of Warcraft" can be very easy if you follow this Rotface strategy. Rotface is quite a simple fight, and this strategy will make it even easier. As long as everyone in the raid is not awful, this Rotface strategy will turn this boss into a free loot.
- Raid positioning. This Rotface strategy requires everyone except the off-tank to be in the center of the room. Everyone besides the tank should be behind the boss as usual. The off-tank needs to stay off to the outskirts of the room to make add management easier. The reason the raid stays in the middle for this Rotface strategy is because sections of the room will occasionally flood, leaving the middle where Rotface is tanked as the only safe zone.
- Slime spray. Slime spray is a move Rotface will cast on a random raid member. It has a cast time, so it is easy to see when he is using it. It is a channeled damage spell that will completely destroy your raid if they stay in it. Simply have everyone move out of the direction he is casting. Be sure to get back in position after it is done. Following this part of the Rotface strategy will keep your raid damage to a minimal level.
- Add control. During the fight, Rotface will cast a spell called mutated infection on a raid member. When this spell expires, a small ooze add will spawn from the infected player and stay aggroed on them. The player with the add should keep the add around the off-tank. Eventually, Rotface will cast this spell again and another small ooze will spawn. The two small oozes will merge together into a big ooze. This ooze can be taunted, so they off-tank should pick it up. This ooze hits like a truck, so the off-tank should just kite it. Each additional small ooze that merges with the big ooze will add a stacking debuff called unstable ooze. When this reaches five stacks, the big ooze freezes and explodes. Everyone in the raid will need to spread out because the explosion sends ooze bolts flying throughout the room. Getting hit by one hurts a lot. After the explosion, get back on the boss.
This Rotface strategy is extremely easy to execute. Following this Rotface strategy will allow you to advance further into Plagueworks for better loot.
