This whole combo is mainly built around a really broken interaction with Saved by the Light
Thaderyl, the paladin of Auchindoun, had a weird bug happen to him in Korthia when he was AFK in the sanctuary. He kept having Saved by the Light proc on him while at full health! Multiple times, even when he had the debuff on him that should prevent that.
I tested for a few minutes and managed to get to the bottom of what caused the bug. It is that Saved by the Light
tries to get cast onto the target with your Beacon of Light
, but if it is unable to get cast on the target, it applies to you instead! Ignoring the debuff "cooldown."
Well how do we manage to make it unable to get cast on the target? Out-ranging it won't work. However, any scenario where you can't have your heals interact with the target, but Beacon is still active, works. Such as in Korthia when you are in the Sanctuary and the target is outside fighting.
Or in my case, when Ipanic was in a duel with my Beacon on him, which caused every instance where he should receive the Saved by the Light
to instead be granted to me!
To manage to survive 10-15 Horde in Durotar over a longer period of time we had to get a massive amount of procs. First plan was to aggro a lot of lowbie mobs, but their miss chance is too high so it wasn't that viable.
Instead we tested with both Soully (BM hunter) and Zoutchy (Fury Warrior). Both classes have a lot of fast hits or pets to help proc Saved by the Light
We also ended up getting Zoutchy the Crate of Kidnapped Puppies
(spawns a lot of pets) as well as the Timeless Isle brews (Thick Pi'jiu Brew
) to spawn Pandarens.
This, along with the earlier trick of using Gently Squeezed Toad
s with a lot of leech (as our main healing) ended up working really well... We are even resilient to Mind Control unlike the first Raid Boss Paladin video
