the mechanics on that fight are so bonkers it's both fun and infuriating in lfr.
basically one of his mechanics is this cloud he drops that if you touch it, it more or less one shots you, and a maze will be in it your group needs to navigate through while also attacking.
i swear my lfr group wiped 5 times before the tank left and our new tank was a bear druid and was like "i got this, just follow me through the cloud" and we did it super easily. --- http://i.imgur.com/FKvo0sE.jpg http://gurn.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/eek-a-mouse.jpg http://i.imgur.com/mmsHVBv.jpg

Yeah, I had to do the same for my LFR group. Took me a couple tries to get it right, though, DBM kept moving the mark I kept putting on my head. --- Believe in yourself. Not you, that believes in me. Not me, that believes in you. Believe in you that believes in yourself. - Kamina, TTGL

It's an easy but fairly interesting mechanic if everyone's in the maze to begin with.
The big graphical issue is that if you're not in the maze, the billowing eyesore clouds make it effectively invisible and so without proper markings it becomes stupidly difficult to find it. What tends to wind up happening in LFR is everyone's scattered all over the platform when Durumu starts the maze phase and because there's no obvious "stand here to not die" bubble like there usually is for similar mechanics, people don't move until the beam and maze actually start, at which point it's too late and half the raid dies.
I think they could have solved the whole issue without needing to nerf Eyesore damage--just either tone down the eyesore maze so it's 2D like Venoxis' poison maze, or else put a light beam or something on the maze start point so people know where they're supposed to be going. --- Posts look awkward without a signature underneath

Umm... there is.
When Durumu starts pre-casting disintegration beam, the safe side of the beam gets marked with little light-purple squiggles. --- Believe in yourself. Not you, that believes in me. Not me, that believes in you. Believe in you that believes in yourself. - Kamina, TTGL

The mechanics are fine, it just has tremendously poorly chosen visuals on the maze. --- When Hollywood runs out of Indians, only the Indians will know.

Dark purple fog concealing a dark purple maze doesn't work so well. --- Believe in yourself. Not you, that believes in me. Not me, that believes in you. Believe in you that believes in yourself. - Kamina, TTGL

Once you understand how it works it's not hard at all, and overall I really like the unique design. GJ blizzard.

Tell your LFR to turn down Particle Density in Graphics to Low. It makes a world of difference in seeing the purple sparks that indicate the safe-zone spawn. --- ~*~ www.pbfcomics.com ~*~

so basically it's a color problem? --- http://i.imgur.com/FKvo0sE.jpg http://gurn.files.wordpress.com/2009/02/eek-a-mouse.jpg http://i.imgur.com/mmsHVBv.jpg

I love Blizzard raid mechanics.
