Taunt Immune Boss List

Post  Ihlos on Tue May 12, 2009 3:58 pm

This thread will be for the collection of data regarding which bosses are immune to taunt and which are not.

-Post information regarding any boss you have information on, whether it be positive (the boss is not immune) or negative (the boss is immune).
-Post if you think any information here is incorrect.
-Post if a boss has adds, and you know if they are immune or not.
-Post any bosses from any of the expansions, since we don't limit our discussion to new or old content.
-Post the difficulty or raid size just in case its different (eg. Heroic, 10 Man)

I'll keep this first post updated with your responses, inserting bosses into their respective categories.

I'll start us off: I'm about 95% sure that Grand widow faerlina (10) is immune but the adds are not.

As a sidenote, she was not immune pre-patch. I sacrificed my pet on enrages a few times in the beginning of Naxxramas.

Adding those two together, we can only assume that's what's happened to pretty much all bosses. =/

I do think its likely that most bosses are now taunt immune, which sucks. However the way they worded the comment leads me to believe that they individually make the decision for each boss, even if they decide 'immune' each time.

It may be that only current content bosses will be immune, since no one cares if illidan can be pet tanked. Over time faerlina may become old enough content and have the stipulation removed.

That kind of stuff is what I hope to find out with this thread, so others can know in advance and not waste time and effort with ill informed strategies.

This may be a noob question but are the mechanics for pet taunts the same as the mechanics for player taunts?

I have tanked almost every boss in the game on my druid and know which ones are immune to taunt. However, if the mechanics of my taunt are different than the mechanics of a pet taunt my information won't be useful. Laughing

when it works, the pet taunt does work like a player taunt in that it can be used at range and it puts the pets threat above the highest threat on the list.

Lady Deathwhisper: Requires a taunt every ~30 seconds. Not sure if she is taunt immune though. You could use a pet for the hardmode though as an OT.

Saurfang: Seems to glitch with pets, it appears he is immune to growl or something. Not sure about the adds on the other gunship.
