Heroic Ozruk = Hunters' Bane...Or Is He

Greetings Fellow Hunters!

By now, I'm sure most of you have had the unfortunate experience of fighting Ozruk in Heroic Stonecore. Just the other day, our guild made our first encounter with him. I was bitching and whining that there was nothing I could do to avoid Paralyze. This fight should be easy, one where hunters shine since we don't have to move at all. Just stand still and spam the rotation. I enjoy watching the tank jump around ping-ponging between the walls. However, Blizzard doesn't want you to just burn him down. Enter Ozruk's spell arsenal. Especially, his Paralyze ability, which is the most frustrating part of the fight since it is not breakable by any of our abilities. We must rely on someone to free us from our state or suffer the 50k damage when the spell expires. There is nothing worse that being stopped mid-rotation and then having your health pool halved. But, fear not! I have found the answer. It turns out you can imbibe during the fight.

That's right, the [Sulfuron Slammer]. Just before the Paralyze, make a toast to Ozruk and drink up. Upon drinking the Sulfuron Slammer, you receive a DoT of 4HP per second for 5 seconds. Just enough time to break the Paralyze yourself. Vanilla WoW to the rescue. I was rolling on the floor laughing at this most basic of solutions. I was like, "4HP per second?! How could anyone endure such a crippling DoT? I mean, my base health is only 106,000." I assume this will work for everyone. The only catch is that it makes you drunk. I mean "Drunk" like you smeared Vaseline all over your monitor drunk.

This is a wonderful exploit that will likely be short lived as it's popularity increases. So, start farming and stay thirsty my friends.

EDIT: I just realized that I forgot to tell your where to get his miraculous beverage. You purchase it from Plugger Spazzring in the Grim Guzzler Bar in BRD. You can use Direbrew's Remote for a quicker trip.
