Viscidus still unsoloable for most classes

Title says it all, Viscidus still needs frost damage to be killed. And since he drops a new pet, I assume this is an oversight?

Add him to the list.
I'm starting to question what kind of people actually test this stuff before it's released.

Your fellow players on the PTR.
I could kill him before.

Want to kill him, get a frost damage chant on your weapon.

And the Emperors still auto heal through all damage and are pretty much unkiteable.

Pretty sure Blizzard didn't look this through enough.
~200 frost hits he will be frozen and you will clearly see a frost trap-like thing around him. When he is frozen, you need to hit him ~75 times with melee attacks in 15 seconds.

That was before the patch... whatever they did had to have made this ridiculously easier.

For anyone other than DK's ... this has to be a joke. Most classes are out dpsing their heals now anyways. DK's are SoL ... Cant melee the melee one, because my damage is based on diseases he is immune to, cant dps the caster one, because my big damage are all melee... Effed no matter what. lol

icy touch x2, deathcoil, retarget, blood strikex2,scourge strikex2, retarget, horn... is like 10k tops... just sad my dps is totally reliant on combining magic and melee.
Anyone tried Lady Vashj yet?

Not sure those work for a feral.

Solo'd them last night prior the patch.

As a mage, keeping nethe-rtempest up is all you need to zero out the heals. From there just pop your cool-downs (as silly as it seems) and nuke it.

i'm not a mage and I'm not sure exactly how you are preventing their heals....
We tested it, but it's a matter of if they listened or not. Add to that, most of the world pets are missing. One player even found some, started battling, then watched as they all mass despawned.

Pure types have it so easy. Rogue can do the same with wound poison ranged to make sure one emp has the debuff, back against a wall, and just blow cooldowns and murder the melee one.

they do, just takes forever to get 200 stacks. but the smashing him after is easy enough.
wow they removed the knockback... lol what a joke.
Frost Oil is limited to 165 and lower weapons. So late BC, early Wrath items but nothing recent.
