Tier and Such... Ramblings

2 posts in this topic

Have you lost that Loving Feeling?

How is 6.1 treating you and your Tier bonuses?

As Holy, that 2pc is feeling really nice. As predicted by most of the world wide interwebz, it crushed any attempt the 20% buff to Clarity of Purpose had to be a starter in our lineup as we work our way through Blackrock Foundry. 4pc Holy has its limited place on fights like Gruul and Kromog for PoH, otherwise it is seeing a jump in hasted Heal on other encounters. All in all, I would have rather seen Clarity of Purpose be relevant but the gap is slowly closing on Discipline. Enough for the narrow minded Raid Leaders' Red-Headed Step-Healer, let’s see how your older, wiser, stronger sibling is doing.

Now Discipline, how can I put a positive spin on this. Even with the 10% nerf implemented to PWS, it is still worth it to cut short the 2pc bonus mid channel, if will overheal, and cast that new, weaker, PWS! Does that sell you?! Let me try again. The Discipline 4pc will reduce the cost of our old SoO favorite, outside of /AFK-Atonement, ..Spirit Shell. Prayer of Healing does so well combined with Empowered Archangel, you couldn't wait to see your old friend and hope its reruns would play on in perpetuity in your rotation. Be honest, did you approach Gruul with renewed vigor like I did. Placing that point into Spirit Shell with a sense of pride or even a Rite of Passage for Discipline to take it back, place it in your arsenal, and Just Win.

"Please wipe, please wipe", I whispered. I didn't line up Archangel after the 3rd tank swap and I spent the next 2 Inferno slices holding AA to get back in sync, that had to be it. OK, here we go, second chance. NO, I don't know how the tank died.

Well, Gruul died, so did Kromog, and the rest of the bosses we thought Spirit Shell would have a chance on. Along with their deaths, so died Discipline's dreams of adding another button to our PWS rotation this patch. Swap back to your Mythic Highmaul gear or Blackrock Foundry Cache loot; sit all but 2 of your 5 tier pieces. Blizzard be damned if we are giving up the 2pc though! You never know how many times during trash your tanks will need the full channel of Penance, and think of all the time/mana your saving building Evangelism. Yea, you show those tier pieces who’s boss of our button mashing and that coveted spot in your Equipment Manager “Raid.”

"Anyone have a Tome to give me? I need Power Infusion back. Maverick told me Spirit Shell has lost that loving feeling, it’s Gone, Gone, Gone...."

Remember, Holy got the PWS nerf too, so there's that. And I wouldn't say Discipline would be the older, as it used to be a lost puppy trying to find its place in the world :)

 

I feel the pain of not having talent choices, and it is very undesirable.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids.

      We currently raid Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:00-22:00 server time. We run social/alt raids during off days in which all ranks of the guild are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is also welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with a 3 days a week schedule that you are expected to attend. However we understand things can come up but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.

      To join into our current main raids
      - 865 ilvl
      - 25 traits at the very least.
      - Experience on 4 or more bosses in EN Mythic.
      You will receive a response within 3 days but probably within 1. The trial process will last 2 weeks, sometimes longer. During the trial period you will not have loot priority over raiders however you may of course still roll.
