[Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

Romulo and Julianne

Romulo and Julianne is an event in the Opera House in Karazhan. This event requires at least 1 person on the stage to start. If you fail to have a player on the stage to talk to the old lady, you will be stuck outside the stage door. If this happens, the event will be stuck, unable to reset.

Romulo (Phase 2)
190,000 Health, ?? Mana

Deadly Swathe: Physical. Strikes at nearby enemies in front of the caster, inflicting weapon damage plus 300 (Affects up to 3 targets).

Daring: Holy. Increases the Physical damage dealt by the caster by 35% and the caster's attack speed by 35% for 8 sec.

Phase 1
At first all you'll have to deal with is Julianne. All of her spells can be interrupted and you should as many as possible. It's more important, however, to interrupt her heal over everything else. She is immune to silence, but not most interrupts. At the beginning of the fight, have a mage cast detect magic on her to see when she buffs herself. When she buffs her self, make sure to dispel it as fast as you can. If you have a mage, they can spellsteal her buff and add to your raids DPS at the same time.

Try to kill her in one of the corners of the stage for Phase 3 positioning.

Phase 2

After you kill Julianee, her lover, Romulo, will appear. Have a mage throw up detect magic again. Romulo is a pretty easy tank and spank. Have the tank bring him over to the opposite side you killed Julianne and face his back to a wall. Facing his back to a wall lets your rogues keep DPSing even after being knocked back. Every time he buffs himself, dispel or spellsteal it as soon as possible. Also, have your warriors and rogues using disarm and Riposte as much as possible.

Phase 3

After Romulo drops, both Julianne and Romulo will come back alive with full health and all thier abilities. All of the same tactics will work against all of their abilities. At this time, have a mage throw up another detect magic on both of them. Have all dispellers on carefull watch for both of the buffs and get them dispelled as quickly as you can.

At this time, you can do either two things...
a) focus fire Romulo or Julianne to 10-15% then focus fire the other down to 10-15%
b) split your raid in half and bring them both to 10-15% at the same time.

The second option is probably easier since you can divide your raid into players that can interrupt and ranged. Those that can interrupt should stick to Julianne like glue and make sure that she doesn't get a heal off on herself or Romulo. The ranged will have an easier time DPSing Romulo because they can completely avoid his cleave and knock back. We're only bringing them to 10-15% because of their last ability. They both have the ability to rez if not killed within 10 seconds of each other. This will almost ensure a wipe. When you get both of the lovers down to 10-15%, bring them both down together. Be extra sure to interrupt any heals that Julianne is casting or you might kill them at uneven times.

Our Role:
In this fight, we have a basic DPS role. Remember to watch agro and especially watch agro upon changing phases where one of them could get free and knock you dead. If your raid is light on dispellers, it might be ideal to bring out your felhunter and use devour magic on either of them. Also, when your raid is at Phase 3, you can DoT up both targets to help bring them both down at the same time.

Re: [Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

Felhunters are by far and large the best dispellers in this fight, so unless your raid seriously needs the HP the Imp provides, or needs extra DPS and you got a Felguard or a specced Imp at your disposal, I'd advise to use Felhunter.

Jul all too often tries to heal directly after self-buffing her. Due to serverlag, it can easily happen that the selfbuff can't be taken off fast enough - but a Felhunter dispels at the time the buff happens on the server, not on the client.

So he's a definite advantage over a "normal" dispeller here.

Nice guide, thanks for the info.

KnThrak, I'm assuming you leave your devour on auto, and just send your felhunter to attack the mob? Do you need to worry about it geting hit and healing it often?

Yep, you have the Felhunter on auto-devour and it will be removed as soon as its cast.

Re: [Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

A huge thankyou to Minidevil of the guild White Eagles (server unsure) for shooting me through an email and letting me know of their videos of Karazhan bosses! I'm always interested in the fights from a Warlock's perspective!

There normally of our 1st or 2nd downs so not the best of kills, but each are from my point of view (full aff lock) and arnt to bad.

Re: [Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

Does Romulo still cleave behind him? I haven't been to KZ in a while, but last time I was there I couldn't sic my Felhunter on him because he would have killed it.

Also useful is putting Julianne as your focus (assuming you have 3rd party unit frames, so you can actually see your focus) and helping stop her heals with Spell Lock.

Re: [Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

I'm not sure about warrior skills and i dont know if it is a skill or an item, but when your tank take's romulo try to disarm him when he gets the damage buff. Putting melee on julian to interrupt her heals and also do alot of damage is nice since she is wearing cloth.
All casters/hunters onto romulo to take away the cleave aspect of the fight. the melee should be able to kill julian at the same pace the casters can kill romulo, this fight is rather comical, if you play with sound that is

Re: [Karazhan] Romulo and Julianne

Summon Felhunter and put Devour Magic on auto! Don't forget and you can enjoy the fight.
Spell lock manual.

Goal: kill them simultanisly with DPS

Put your Felhunter on Julliane.
If she start casting press Spell Lock.

Same for Romulo.

If they are togheter on stage?

You focus on female.
Watch (your Felhunter,) Julliane and Romulo's health.
Hold back till both almost dead.
Finish them off.
Is it a fear? A fear of madness! Is it a fear for fear itself? I think I'm gonna get deranged. Then the night comes. Never enough then the night comes.
