Since the smaller Oozes will heal the Champion if they touch him (and in large numbers can even bring the Champion back to full health); the general strategy for defeating the Golden Ooze is to aggro and pull the Champion AWAY from the smaller oozes. While at the same time knocking back/pulling the smaller Oozes AWAY from the Champion. As such melee minions, pets and/or phantasms are not recommended for the fight, since the Champion might start attacking them and stay in place, giving the small Oozes time to walk up and heal the Champion. It helps to have a tag and pick a general direction in which to pull the Champion, either clockwise/counterclockwise, just keep in mind the distance/position of the small Oozes relative to the Champion.





Event start
Speelunkk: Good home here. Start, grow. New beginning, oh yes.
Speelunkk: Oooh. So big. Something good here? Yes. Must look.
Sage Essher: Is the ooze still out there? Can anyone hear me?
Speelunkk: Oh! Heard something. Over here.
Speelunkk: Something shiny down tunnel!
Sage Essher: Oh, there you are. I feared I might spend eternity here.
Speelunkk: What would trap such shiny, pretty person?
Sage Essher: An ooze ambushed me. I may not survive another of its attacks. I wonder if you might have better luck?
Speelunkk: No worries! Will smash ooze and free pretty, floaty thing.
Speelunkk: Something shiny down tunnel!
Sage Essher: Defeat those oozelings before the big one has a chance to heal.
Event completion
Speelunkk: No fear. Nasty ooze is all gone now.
Sage Essher: Thank you, little one. I'm in your debt.
Speelunkk: You can come live with me, now.
Sage Essher: Oh... I'm grateful to you, but I have an important mission.
Sage Essher: I've lost too much time. I need to reach the pylon.
Sage Essher: I must summon the enchanted armor to help protect Tarir.
Speelunkk: (sigh) Such an important floaty person.


Sometimes Auran the Golden Ooze is credited with saying line "Defeat those oozelings before the big one has a chance to heal", instead of Sage Essher.
