Heigan the unclean - Naxx bug spot

Hi there,

I am reporting a bug spot between zone1 and zone2 where players can standstill to kill boss without moving or dancing at both phase 1 and 2

To define the zone1,2,3,4 is when you facing the boss, divide the slimes bursts area into 4 zones. More specifically, the very left one is called zone 1, then zone 2, zone 3 and zone 4 from left to right.

I cannot link or share photo, if you need more info, I am more than happy to provide.

This is not a bug - this is just the way it is. If you watch this video from 11 years ago https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW2fpZf1Y80 at the 1m46s mark you can see the safe spot exists there as well.

That is an original vanilla wow video showing the same saftey spots are there in actual vanilla as well.

If they knew about it in 2006 I suspect they would’ve fixed it.

It completely breaks the fight.

They should fix this. Ectoplasmic Distiller was FIXED. Allowing this is beyond stupid.


We did issue a hotfix earlier in the week that should have resolved a well known “safe spot” on Heigan’s dance floor.

If you have personally witnessed any successful usage of a safe spot during this current lockout (since Tuesday AM on 12/8), please feel free to email any screenshots or other specifics you have of this occurring to aggrend@blizzard.com and we’ll take a look. Be sure to include the specific date and time you encountered the issue, as well!

We’d ask that you not post such information here however, as to not further publicize a potential new exploit while we are investigating.

Again, if you experienced a safe spot in Heigan’s room prior to 12/8, the issue you experienced is likely resolved. If you have more recent examples of safespotting the Heigan dance, shoot us an email with details!

Thank you!

It hits for about ~4k with sometimes an addtionnal ~2k (not always, not sure how this one happens). Also consider people that pre-pot with nature protection potions.

doesnt it say its unresistable damage though?
would potions still work?

It cannot be resisted with nature resist but it can be ABSORBED by protection potions. I tried it and it works, everyone should pre-pot with at least a normal nature protection.

nice, ok cool thanks, i closed my thread because i realized that yes it can tick once, i rewatched some old videos and maybe ticks twice if you are further away because in a forum someone said the further you are the more damage you take but im not 100% sure on that
