General tactics (All fights):
Ideally you are wanting the Second Wind
talent, along with Avatar
, as it has the highest overall damage boost. (There are some fights where Bloodbath
is better - But it will be stated further into this post on the "Fight-Specific Tactics" part).
You should also be making sure to, of course, have Mass Spell Reflection
(As the other two Tier 5 talents can't affect you), and at least two Potion of Brawler's Might
Pre-potting with Potion of Brawler's Might
is the best idea (Hence owning two per fight) and then using the next one as soon as it's ready, alongside all of your DPS cooldowns.
Most other benefits are negligible until higher up fights or your gear is lower than average (I'm working with full 463 or better gear - As that's what I had until reaching Rank 7).
Fight-Specific tactics (Goredome):
As with Bruce, this fight is low-threat damage and damage requirement wise.
However, also like Bruce, it requires quick response times and awareness.
The only threat in this fight is his Lumbering Charge ability, which places a red circle as a "target" on the floor, and has a 1-second cast time. When this cast is complete he will charge at the center of the red circle and upon reaching it, instantly kill all targets within the circle.
So the best idea for this fight is to make sure you have Glyph of Enraged Speed
and Heroic Leap
ready as a backup. Just cast Berserker Rage
to boost your run speed and get out of that circle as soon as you see it appear.
If you can avoid the circle, you shouldn't run even the slightest risk of death.
