Too much AoE

We ran Zul'Farrak last night, again. I think I've been through three or four times now, and I still don't quite know how to play it. It's interesting how different the game play is when you play solo versus when you are playing with a lot of other people - my AoE is a bit too potent until the mobs have been reduced to about half their life, but I'm not really inclined to sit on my hands for half the fight. Clearly I'm missing something, which I'm sure will turn up eventually. The up side, of course, is that I can just ask my guild.

Hey David -

ZF can be a tough dungeon to figure out. I think it took me a number of trips to understand it fully. When you say that your AoE pulls aggro, it's usually best not to AoE elite mobs for exactly that reason. Your tank would definitely have his hands full trying to keep the mobs from ganking you, not to mention that you're probably gonna go OOM before the fight is done. Try targeting each mob individually and using your weapon of choice (frostbolt/fireball/arcane missiles/shadowbolt) to burn them down.

For non-elite mobs though, you should be able to get them with AoE before they get you. Just be sure to let your group know and asking for a shield from a priest can be helpful too.

Good luck to you and thanks for the link!
