Will of the Emp Magnitize

We're working on H Will and I keep getting bounced between the bosses. It's happening almost every attempt, I've tried Shadowmelding when they come out (I'm healing with a priest and he's fading when they come out). Also I try to stand towards the back well away from where the bosses when they come out. Any advice?

Don't heal with HoTs for like 3 seconds before or after the big guys come out.

Tried that. Got yanked all the way across the freaking room.

Unless you're out-threating your tanks, there's really no way to get Magnetized other than being the closest person to either boss when they spawn.

I don't understand how you're consistently having this happen to you.

Neither do we. It happened to our mage once. He was nowhere near the boss and he hadn't touched the boss at all.

So much irony. My healing partner's computer crashed just as the second set of Rages came out so I was popping cooldowns and healing like crazy. Of course there were no pink beams of frustration that attempt. Everything went flawlessly lol

So despite two more pulls where I got bounced around well after the tanks had picked up the bosses and pulled them towards the back of the room and another pull where they yanked my partner out of his Fade to bounce him around as well things came together tonight and I'm happy to report we got H Will down for the first time. The last four pulls there was no yanking, I have no idea what changed or why it stopped.

Gratz. Would imagine your tanks started taunting quicker.

I've had this several times as well on normal will. The shaman I heal with hasn't mentioned it. For me, it occurs about 5-10 seconds after the bosses come out, tanks have already taunted and are moving the bosses to their positions. I get bounced to one 4-5 times trying to run away (my tank is right next to him retaunting away>>)and then finally he gives up.

I was absolutely not the closest person to the boss when they entered nor in a few of those attempts had I even healed the tank closest to that boss yet.

It seems completely random to me, occurring about 5% of our pulls.

Yep, this. Our tanks always pick the bosses up immediately, it's well after they start moving them that I get bounced around. It rarely happened on normal but it occurred during at least half of our pulls last night.

Oh well, I was posting with a bit of desperation last night just in case anyone had useful advice. I guess I'll just hope it doesn't happen next week.

This has happened to me too. Happened as shadow once, happened as disc once.

It happens to my druid every so often. HoTs have been ongoing of course because of the aura. But since it's still very early in the fight, there usually isn't a problem.
