I wanted to share something which my guild discovered a few weeks ago, and which we have been able to tune into a very effective tool for dealing with the trash-mobs, and grinding rep in ICC 10/25.Great Rogue+Warlock trick for the Deathbound Wards in ICC 10/25 (the BIG skeletons)
Once your Rogue can identify the locations of the traps, you can have a Warlock bring out his Eye of Kilrogg
. The traps are fairly small, and so if the Rogue can describe the location of the traps fairly well, the Warlock can sweep the area with his (or her) Eye of Kilrogg. Once the trap pops, you will notice that the Eye slows down significantly, and then a voice will state that you have been noticed. Cast Eye of Kilrogg again to switch back to controlling your Warlock.
The Deathbound Ward will begin lumbering about, and can be pulled by your Tank and taken down by your team, all by himself. I have not yet had any difficulty at all with this trick aggroing the Nerubians and other skeletons, standing in the middle of the room. This also allows a group with slightly lower cumulative DPS than is considered the "norm" for ICC 10/25, to do the job.
Some individuals would rather skip the Deathbound Wards, saying that Rogues can disarm the traps. But? If you want to build rep, Deathbound Wards are worth 75 rep with the Ashen Verdict. Nothing to sneeze at. (And your entire party will be that much
closer to some VERY sexy rings!)
Frankly, I don't think most Warlocks make enough use of Eye of Kilrogg. I often use it in both PvP and PvE to scout an area without subjecting myself to danger.

you don't really need the rogue to scout the traps, just go for a run around with your eye.
That's actually how I discovered this trick... Since, I knew that my Eye of Kilrogg wouldn't typically aggro mobs, I wanted to see what I could see. And then, I popped a trap.
Thing is, I've yet to see a trap. Can you tell me what I should be looking for? Are you using anything like, say, Detect Invisibility?
rogues can use flares
to mark locations (or the current seasonal event items work well too)
We'll try that. Thanks.
just right-click the "eye of kilrogg" buff from your buff frame to drop the eye.
Hitting the spellbar button I have set for Eye of Killrog is easier and faster. One press to start it, one to stop it. There's no casting time to cancel it. It just cancels.
make sure your rogue IS disarming the gas traps after saurfang. i don't know why but people die more on that than frogger O.o
Also good to know. But first, we've got to take down Marrowgar.
