[BUG?] Lady Death Whisper likes me!

Post Limit:
Ever since patch 4.0 Lady Death Whisper has decided to Mind Control me every cast, every week. Is there anyone else that have found themselves in a position to transcend others, Elevated to heights beyond their ken?

Youre obviously the weakest mind - she chooses you because you are putty in her hands...
I've had a similar experience with Halion HM. Everytime I'm upstairs in p3 I get picked for the debuff, without fail. Three weeks now it's happened.
I think it's just bad RNG.

Been noticing this a lot tho. H LK -- for some reason picks on one or two people more than anyone else in the raid sending many Shadow Traps and Defiles at the same people.

In a raid of 25, and LK casting maybe 10 Shadow traps? The odds of getting 2 aren't astronomical. But those number start to skyrocket at 3 and 4 times -- which is often the case.

It doesn't change the encounter any. Just seems odd.

Happened for two weeks straight with a feral druid in our guild during p1 (normal mode though). It seems to have fixed itself.
I should probably play lotto if it's RNG, Heh.. I'm 12 for 12 Mind controls over the last 5 weeks.

Something tells me she prefers to target low threat players, and ends up targeting the Same 3 players for the rest of the fight due to all threat being dropped (most of the time it's me + the hunters because they have feign death, sometimes our new undergeared warlock is the target due to his threat being lower then others). So because I do the least damage of anyone else in the raid, I end up MC'd the first time and then my threat is wiped and I'm screwed from there on.
While I cannot claim I know the exact formula - in most cases, historically, the random debuffs in raid encounters usually aren't random. They are usually threat based, but appear random.

For example; on the Anub'arak encounter during Phase 2, the spikes would chase whoever is currently highest on their threat table. It was a separate thread table from Anub'arak and I'm not exactly sure how you built aggro on it, but it was definitely threat based.

I can only assume the mind controls on Lady Deathwhisper are also threat based.



Are you focusing more on damaging the mana shield than damaging adds?

We only have 1 wave of adds in phase1, I throw mabye 1 chainlightning during them. Sometimes a fire nova if we get them bunched up fast enough.
