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 (Kirrawk):
During this fight, Kirrawk will repeatedly cast Lightning Bolt, which is of no threat whatsoever - The main threats are Storm Cloud, and the twisters he will summon.
Storm Cloud should be interrupted as a priority, to hugely reduce the incoming damage.
The bigger threat is the twisters that are summoned, as that can't be interrupted (It's instant - So stuns won't work either).
If you get hit by the twisters, you will get launched into the air and he will channel Lightning Flurry at you, which will kill you before you land. However if you can place Kirrawk between you and the twister, he will be launched instead, and won't cast Lightning Flurry.
But if, due to a mistake, lag, call it what you will, you get hit by a twister, you can use Charge
to get back down quickly, and interrupt the Lightning Flurry cast, so Double Time
is the best choice, so you will always have a charge available, because he doesn't summon the twister that often.
Yet another low-threat fight for our class, thanks to Charge
, and so the main threat is not putting out enough damage, or failing to interrupt Storm Cloud.
