Hey folks,

Figured I'd share this little tip with anyone who's been having trouble killing the Prophet of Vodal at the end of the Athiss flashpoint. You could say it's a bug, but if you have someone initially pull the prophet from on top of the statues that line the walls of the room, he will stay focused on you and only you..not attacking anyone else in the party (except for the fire spawn and maybe his curse here and there). I am a Powertech BH, and kept spamming Neural Dart on him..not sure if it make a difference in the aggro, but he stayed focused on me during the entire fight. Here is a screenshot to give an idea:

Happy hunting!

This boss isn't difficult at all. Why would you need to exploit it?

If they are having trouble with it, they deserve to wipe until they learn the encounter.

U could even stand on the ground between those things.. if u are a tank with Tauntskill u wont lose aggro. IF everyone avoids the fire ( thats the tricky part if the WoW ppl keep saying "NO! i wont move or i might miss the moment he uncloaks and loss DPS Z****!!" <-- yes ive seens those) this wont be much trouble. Just alot of work for the healer to keep an eye on those with the Dot.

Id like to add: i enjoy doing flashpoints around the lvl they are suppost to be played.. 7-8 or even 10+ lvl for those, take all the fun and wont help anyone,,,

And you deserve to have your forum account suspended for being an arrogant fool.

Good day to you.

What?

You walk into an encounter not understanding it, you should either adjust on the fly and beat it, or wipe and try again with better understanding. I'm not being arrogant at all.

Example:

Raid boss debuff applies to someone, nobody knows what it does. They let it expire and it blows up half the raid and they wipe. Next pull they know to move out of the raid for the expiration and kill the boss easily.

I agree with above.

People need to learn the flashpoints even if its by trial and error.

Often times I am with a group doing this and the members have never done it so I simply stop them and explain how each fight works and have yet to wipe.

^This.

This happened to me last night. First attempt: wipe. Second attempt: win! And we all became better and smarter players for it.
