ZA timed event.

Since ZA first came out, there were alot of questions about the timed event. Here is all of the info on it so far.

 

http://www.wowwiki.com/Zul%27Aman_timed_event

 

 

Overview

 

Enter the instance and talk to Harrison Jones to start the event and open the doors. You will now have 20 minutes to defeat the first animal-boss of your choosing. Any of the loa spirit bosses will do and there is no required order, but two of them will add extra time to the timer.

 

* Killing Nalorakk (bear) will add 15 minutes to your timer.

* Killing Akil'zon (eagle) will add 10 minutes to your timer.

* Other bosses will not grant additional time.

 

Therefore you have exactly 45 minutes to kill the first four bosses, which is a challenging task! Guilds that are doing Serpentshrine Cavern and The Eye will likely get three bosses down within 45 minutes, whereas guilds doing Hyjal and Black Temple content are the only ones likely to get all four. Karazhan / Tier 4 equipped raids should be able to get at least the first two chests, until they gear up with Zul'Aman and heroic badge equipment. Note that you must kill the boss before the timer expires. Unlike the Baron timed quest, engaging a boss before the timer expires is not sufficient.

 

The loot from the event is dependent on the number of hostages you rescue. All loot is from the Zul'Aman timed event loot table (see below).

 

* First hostage will give a random piece of armor (iLvl 128).

* Second hostage will give a random weapon (iLvl 132).

* Third hostage will give a random ring (iLvl 141).

* Fourth hostage will always give the [Amani War Bear].

 

Strategy

 

A key facet of the timed event is handling the packs quickly. You should chain-pull every pack, and have different healers conserve mana and rotate drinking. After each boss, leave one person behind to loot the chest while the rest move on. If someone needs an item from a chest, have them run back.

 

The recommended boss order for this strategy is Eagle -> Bear -> Dragonhawk -> Lynx. The reason is because after you've killed the Bear boss you're standing at the start of the Dragonhawk packs, and after the Dragonhawk boss you are practically staring at the entrance to the Lynx boss. While it might be possible to also do a more traditional Bear -> Eagle -> Dragonhawk -> Lynx order, you lose valuable time traversing back and forth. The raid members should also equip their [Riding Crop] for faster travel.

 

However, if your group is just not good enough and still has problems with the first 2 Bosses, stay with the classic order: Bear, Eagle. This will make sure you get at least one, maybe two chests, because depending on your DPS, the Bosses might not die fast enough.

 

The following would be a typical timed event:

 

* 20:00 Head towards Eagle boss.

* 19:00 Start the gauntlet. AoE the eagles as soon as they arrive. DOT the Amani'shi Warriors.

* 16:30 Pull the Amani'shi Tempest as soon as possible to stop spawns.

* 15:30 Pull Akil'Zon.

* 12:15 Akil'zon dead. You gain 10 min on the timer.

* 22:15 Move to the bear boss.

* 19:00 Skip two out of three Amani Bear packs. Hug the left wall. Chain pull.

* 14:30 Pull Nalorakk. All out dps.

* 11:30 Nalorakk dies. You gain 15 min on timer.

* 26:30 Head to the Dragonhawk boss. Take the left path, avoid the bird packs to the right. Stun/root all Scouts.

* 19:30 Pull Jan'Alai.

* 19:00 Don't kill one of the Amani'shi Hatchers and let the remaining one hatch some eggs.

* 16:00 Aim for having the boss at 40% when the third set of Hatchers arrive.

* 14:30 Jan'alai dies. No bonus time. Go towards Lynx boss.

* 13:30 AoE the Amani Lynx Cubs.

* 11:30 Amani Lynx packs: Single target dmg on one, after that AoE.

* 08:00 Let your mage spellsteal the Amani'shi Flame Caster for some extra dps.

* 03:30 Pull Halazzi. If everything went well, you have 3 min to kill him.

* 00:30 Enjoy your bear mount.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm BEAR!

 

I would actually like to get a group together for this simply because the Amani Bear is awesome beyond words. Of course, it would have to be composed of our most geared raiders, and done at a time where we can have all these people online. I don't expect that we'll get the fourth chest the first time, but it's definitely a realistic goal to achieve. What kind of group would be needed do you think? Swapping people during the event is obviously out of the question, so we need to have the key classes for each of the bosses in the raid from the start. Not to mention the requirement for tanks that can pump out quick threat due to the necessity of super-high dps. Off the top of my head, I'm thinking the following for a sweet group setup. Of course, changes can be made.

 

MT - Feral Druid

OT - Prot Paladin

4 Casters - Combination of 3 AoE and a Shadow Priest

1 Melee - Rogue/Fury Warrior

3 Healers

 

DUDE we should totally get this together some time!!

I'm with you RH, I know it can be done, but I think for the first couple of times, flasks and food buffs will be required.

I think we have some people in this guild that will kill people if they don't get it. Personally I say we let people use FPP on it, and I garantee there will be some dreamrolls used.

Yesterday I put together a ZA group that was BARELY off from getting the 3rd timed chest. We decided to go Eagle-->Bear-->Lynx (mainly because Dragonhawk is annoying as hell). We were about 2 or 3 minutes off.

The FP Group that I ran with a couple weeks ago did an excellent job. Despite the fact that the group makeup was less than "perfect". You guys definitely have the ability to accomplish this.

 

Here is my take on the strategy:

 

Make up:

2 Healers - I prefer Shaman/Priest.

2 Tanks - Feral Druid / Prot Pally (On DPS race fights, the druid can DPS while still specced to tank. And on hard hitting (healing intensive) bosses, the druid can tank while the pally wears healing gear and helps out.)

1 Warlock

1 Mage

1 Shadowpriest

1 Hunter

1 Melee

1 Optional (This should depend on your group. If your AOE is week, bring another AOE Caster, if not bring another melee who can shell otu some serious DPS. Normally, I would choose a warlock)

 

Boss Order:

Eagle - Bear - Dragon Hawk - Lynx.

 

Notes:

It's possible for some guilds with weaker healers, that they may choose to take a 3rd healer. I don't think this should be the case for you guys, as the healing in the raid I attended was simply top-notch, even at 3am.

 

The biggest key to completing the timed event, I think, is not looting the chests. They don't despawn, so come back for them later. Don't bother wasting the 2+ minutes it will take you to listen to the NPC talk, and finally open the chest. Kill the boss, loot him, and click the need/greed/pass button the "grouploot box" as you run to the next pull. A lot of valuable time can be made up by donig so.

 

It's an absolute requirement that you chain pull everything, and skip any packs that you don't absolutely need to pull. Don't expect to keep a full mana bar. Consumables are a must.

 

 

Anyway, you guys can totally do it.

 

 

*Edit* Also, if you need an s:priest and don't have one (or a good one :P ) handy, shoot me a tell. I am always down to run ZA, but rarely get saved to the Vind runs because Santero leads them, and 2 S:priests isn't always a good plan.
