World of Warcraft: Fight Malygos on Drakes in Phase 1/2 Exploit

There is a little nasty exploit which allows you to use Drakes from Phase 3 in Phase 1 & 2, which will make the 6 min Achievement much easier.

It was tested in Malygos 10-man instance, but probably works in 25 instance too. So far, it seems to only work with Mages and Rogues, as they are the only ones who can get out of combat and while remaining invisible. Maybe it will work with Shadowmeld too, but is untested.

Dugi's Ultimate World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP and Leveling Guide This little exploit can give you pretty nice dps increase in Phase 1 to get quickly into Phase 2 and saves pretty much time and you can also heal up your group this way.

Notice: You can't attack the adds while on drake! But Healing still works

Dugi's Ultimate World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King PvP and Leveling Guide In order to for this exploit to work, you need to get into Phase 3 at least and must be a Mage or Rogue. And just before the platform shatters Rogues/Mages use their Vanish/Invisibility and remain in stealth/invisible until the rest of your group is mounted. Then all other (except Mages and Rogues) immediately dismount from their Drakes and fall into the void and die. On the same time, the Rogues/Mages run far away on the outer parts of the instance so that Malygos won't agro them. It's important that they don't enter combat at any price, otherwise they will die too.

When Malygos resets, the Mages/Rogues will remain on their drakes and can use them in Phase 1 (and party in Phase 2 too, for healing for example, but you can't attack the adds while on drake)

Update: There are also reports, that there is another way to accomplish this, by dying in Phase 1 or 2 and waiting in front of the Eye of Eternity Portal and enter it before the platform is shattered (1-5 seconds before). This however wasn't confirmed yet.

Update 2: There is another way, to keep the drakes for phase 1 & 2
Have the paladins cast Divine Intervention on raid members who can't vanish or go invisible. All they have to do is to immediately drop Divine Intervention. They will leave combat and stay out of it, which allows them to keep the drakes for the next try. - Thanks to QdlatY for sharing this!

if you have paladins, you can ask them to cast DI on any player before platform is shattered. Person with DI MUST drop DI immediatelly, but will remain out of combat and get this drake. We tested it ;-)
