Timewalking Dungeons

4 posts in this topic

Gear scale accordingly in Timewalking dungeons to the item level of the expansion, so I was wondering if I used the inv_weapon_glave_01.jpgWarglaive of Azzinoth in BC expansions and inv_axe_113.jpgShadowmourne in WotlK dungeons, will it be better than current gear?

 

If I went back to BC and WotlK dungeons to farm gear, that the gear I get there won't be scaled down and will become BiS gear.

 

If this is true, does anyone have the BiS lists for BC and WotlK?

 

Also, if I use stave_2h_tarecgosa_e_01stagefinal.jpgDragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest in BC and WotlK dungeons, will it also be OP?

They only scale down, not up. So Warglaives would be useless in WotLK+, Shadowmourne in Cata+, and Dragonwrath in MoP+. But you could use Dragonwrath in BC or WotLK and have it own face.

 

 

From what I've seen the weapon damage is being scaled to roughly (with in a few DPS) of current weapons scaled down, at least that is what it was doing for me and my bow. The PROC from the old weapons is what is OP. If you're a hunter, you're screwed since the proc was free ammo...a proc that was made useless when ammo was removed.

 

The other procs though are very good.

 

For farming the gear...I don't know if it will do much good. I think it is all fairly normalized. Even if the gear from then WAS BiS for Timewalking, Timewalking is so easy I don't see it doing any good. But if you want to try it out, go for it.

So I finally got stave_2h_tarecgosa_e_01stagefinal.jpgDragonwrath, Tarecgosa's Rest last week (YEAH!!!), and attempted to take it on a test drive in the TW dungeons, got NO procs. Checked the forums and saw that Fangs of the Father is also not working.

I know this is a necro thread, but it was on the first page of a google search concerning Timewalking BiS.

While it is correct that they do not scale up, it is incorrect to say they are useless, at least for Shadowmourne.  Shadowmourne is still BiS for Cata TW because of the sockets, procs, and the ilvl that cata TW is scaled down to.  It is slightly lower ilvl, and as such, DPS stat on the weapon, but its other features still make it BiS.

No idea for Glaives, and the other examples don't apply as there are no MoP TW (yet) and the stat squish didn't effect its content.

      Our guild <Do it For Practice> is looking for a possible merge. We have been clearing content since release but hit a roadblock lately. We easily have the capacity to clear hard content, but we are just lacking a serious amount of players. This leads to other players leaving because of lack of players and the vicious cycle continues.
      The people in our guild are all extremely friendly and willing to help each other out. This is what kept our guild alive for this long, the base core is really strong. Having to pug players for mythic raids has just become a real big issue because it leads to a lot of time lost while all we want to do is just progress through hard content.
      Currently we are basically in need of a big amount of dps players, could make room for a tank and some healers if necessary.  The people we do have are all extremely geared. The average item level of our raiders is 880.
      The only way I see this problem solved is by simply merging with another guild that is experiencing the same kind of issues.
      We are an 18+ guild, most of us are 20+.
      We are open to many ideas, just talk to me about it.
      Prefer if you add me on real id, Matthijs #2267 or otherwise in-game, Cabony.
      Thank you for reading.

      Hello guys, Do it For Practice is recruiting on Stormscale EU, Horde side.
      We killed Nythendra, Ursoc and Elrethe on mythic and trials of valor heroic odyn and guarm.  Our next goals are the dragons and eye mythic.
      The current raiding days are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 7-11 server time. Besides normal raids we also have regular mythic+ groups going.
      The age requirement is 18+. Most of us are 20+ currently, I am 26 myself.
      We use the RC Lootcouncil addon for our loot distribution, so we can gear our players as well as possible and let the least amount of loot go to waste. We strive by the philosophy of making the entire guild stronger as a whole, not just some players. This is so we can have the strongest group possible to continue progressing trough mythic content.
      I am sure the players we currently have are more than capable of clearing most mythic content currently out. We just need some more players to help us in achieving our goals.
      We are currently looking for some dps in the form of, but not limited to: Shadow Priests, A Hunter,  WW Monk, Warlock or Warrior. Having more than one playable spec is extremely valuable here!
      Please be at least 865+ before you apply, we are past the point of progressing trough easy content. You need to be able to hold your own. However we do have a social rank, if your friends wish to join us as well!
      Interested?

      Hey everyone. I'm worried that my time invested in BM is for not. However, with the changes coming to MM, my thoughts are that BM may still be a viable raiding spec. I enjoy BM because of its freedom of movement.  A dead hunter does no damage, and that my motto. With that being said, I want to be sure I'm maximising my damage output. I'm currently waiting on some drops, namely trinkets, which I've been incredibly unlucky with, but other than that, I'm geming for mastery, and enchanting agi where needed. Currently, in raids, with flasks and potions, I've been ranging in dps from about 265-310, depending on the fight.  Given my gear, I feel like I should be doing more. I'm unsure if I'm hitting a ceiling with BM, or if it is something I'm doing wrong. I've been following the standard rotation posted on icy-veins, and even under normalized conditions on training dummies (no flasks etc...), under 2-3 min rotations, I've been peaking at around 270k dps. Any thoughts on this?
       
      Here is a link to my armory.

      Hey guys, had a sick lootday today... I ended up getting 3 upgrades having a hard time to decide which two to use.
       
      I've got:
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=139330/heightened-senses ilvl 880
      http://www.wowhead.com/item=137419/chrono-shard ilvl 880
      and http://www.wowhead.com/item=138222/vial-of-nightmare-fog ilvl 885

      I've read that Chrono Shard has weak procc chance, but the stats are as right as they get..

      But then again the procc heal from Nightmare is amazing.

      Any suggestions or calculations out there?

      Thanks!
