Festergut: what does that icon mean?

January 17, 2010 at 3:09 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Now that the second wing of Icecrown Citadel is open, players have the chance to fight three new bosses: Festergut, Rotface and Professor Putricide.  This post provides an identification guide for the icons in your debuff bar during the Festergut fight.  If you are interested in a strategy guide for the Festergut fight, I highly recommend the one written by Dethkrik at StratFu.

Gas Spore

If you have this, you have 12 seconds to stand near party members to apply the Inoculated buff.  If you aren’t tanking, this is the only icon you need to worry about.  You really really need to worry about it.  When you have this, there will also be a spore over your head.

Blighted Spores

Inflicts ~2k shadow damage every 1 sec.  Healers need to heal the group through this.

Inoculated

Decreases shadow damage taken by 25%. Stacks up to 3.  Needed to survive Pungent Blight, which does ~50k damage every ~120 seconds.

Gastric Bloat

Increases damage dealt by 10%.   Only the tank gets this, but if it stacks to 10 the raid wipes.  After a tank switch, it is important to watch your aggro carefully.
