The one thing I truly miss from days gone by is my Battle Chicken and the Gnomish Death Ray.I recall when I was level 60 and my little brother was a level 40 something warrior thinking he could take my mage on, if she had no gear on and I didn't attack him with spells.After a while, I called out my chicken. His reaction was pricelessAfter that, I promised no more chicken.He wanted another shot, so after getting me down to around 60% I cast my Death Ray...Thankfully it didn't kill me, but it one shotted him. Again, his reaction of was priceless.I honestly can't tell you how many times, both the chicken and the death ray were extremely fun, and USEFUL to use back in vanilla, and to some degree in Classic.Wish they hadn't forgotten about things like this in Retail.

Judging from Rico's image there, this is sure to get hotfixed soon
This should totally be fixed. But I hope they don't nerf the group functionality of the chicken.An easy fix would be to stop cooldown recovery for the battle chicken while the character is offline.That way the buffs can still stack in a group scenario but you cannot exploit it by getting 10 Stacks over 200 Minutes of preparation.
Hey, thats you! :) Thank you for an informative article.
Honestly, I would love to see this banned in raids, maybe then guilds would stop forcing raiders to have engineering, and give people a chance to be creative with other professions, like enchants on rings for example!
That screenshot, holy #$%^. 50% haste? How does that stack with haste potion and bloodlust? What is this witchcraft?
That's hilarious but now the secret is out... it'll be fixed soon enough.
Nerf this, that is ridiculous.
Needs to be fixed to not stack, then it should be fine.
And so it continues, players optimizing the fun out of everything. Please continue to wonder why classic is dying.
Love the scientific trials covering most (all?) possibilities, along with the perfectly basic explanation of it all. Great work!
Hi, Simonize!Thank you very much for your work and for this research especially.Now I wonder if there is a way to use Chicken in a boss fights. I mean, you don't want to cast it in battle, coz you'd like to switch a trinket (but as a rogue you may spend Vanish for that, right?).And 5 min duration is short enough to use it on a trash pack before the boss, coz you waste your buff setting up tactics and so on. You may log out with the buff on, but it's not a real solution.So it would be perfect to trigger Chicken on any "fixed fight", just like you may do before pulling Hydross.Do anyone knows the way to summon something "hostile"? May be, some toy or quest item? For example, Mr. Pinchy can do this sometimes, but it's too rare and unreliable.And, if there's no such a "hack", is summoning in combat without replacing the trinket still worth it (considering the fight is short enough)?
Sorry for the sinister reply and the delayed response. Basically what i meant was you do not need to use the trinket in the fight. this is how you utilize the buff without wearing the trinket in the actual fight.1- Wear the trinket and pull the last trash pack before the fight as a tank.2- use the trinket before the last mob dies while tanking it.3- enjoy the buff and put back your tanking/dps trinket.
