Imperial Vizier Zor'lok aggro issues

Anyone else having problems with his threat? In our attempts last night, sometimes everything would work fine, but most of the time on at least one of the platforms his aggro would go insane. And by that I mean for anywhere from 3-15 seconds after everyone had moved on to his new platform (so out of the gas) he would spin around in circles and cycle his target 1-2 times per second, attacking players at random. We had quite a few good attempts ruined by this, where he would just 1-2 shot a random dps or healer. Taunt has no effect when he does this, and if you click on him, he shows a yellow ~100% threat. When he stops, it will turn grey and drop to the single / low double digit percentages.

For reference, when transitioning between platforms we had a lock gate to port the tank and healers to the other side (both sides of the gate were in the clouds), and made sure he was always the first one in to melee range, followed by the rest of the raid.

When he's on the platforms he doesn't move so he will melee the closest target to him even if they have 0 threat. Similar issues are found in rooting adds on Elegon and Will.

Just make sure people dont touch him until the melee are hitting him. It's not a dps race.

It's your warlocks gate that is causing the problems. The gate puts a temporary "fade" type threat modifier on people that travel through it. If your tank is using the gateway, he won't be able to hold threat on the boss until it expires.

That doesn't really explain it though. Like I said, our tank is always the first one in to melee range so he stops channeling then he just stands there. In one of the many times he did this last night, the player he targeted and 2 shotted was a druid healer standing towards the back of the platform. He also randomly hit / (sometimes killed) the hunter and the warlock a couple times, although his favorite person seemed to be me. I had my finger on the "die by the sword" button for the rest of the night when transitioning because of that.

That explains it! We'll just have to fire the Warlock now. (j/k)

Thanks!
