Returning player 6.@

3 posts in this topic

Hey Guys & Gals,


I am a returning player, after leaving at the first patch of MoP. I am just needing some advice and help with gearing up to begin some raiding. I have hit a very stagnant spot, I have absoloutely no idea what i am doing. I have never hit the capped level before, or raided, so i am very new to 'End game content'. I have read and re-read the  guides to my class as well.


I have an iLvl of 665 sub/combat rogue. I am not benefiting from heroics anymore and the gear i am finding from drops are not as good anymore. And i feel as though i am pestering my guild mates with questions all the time. I got some help with doing pvp and have managed to get a couple of purple gear and weapons. But i am still dying and taking damage alot. I want to be able to survive longer, while hitting with decent damage. The quests i have i cannot do, because i need to get into the raids or i am not a good ilvl.


Can anyone help me with understanding end game content, and how to better gear myself. So i am ready for legion. And able to raid and get the most out of the content?

While it's not the most interesting thing to be doing, it sounds like LFR would be a good start. It would also be worth going to Zangarra in Talador and starting your legendary quest. If I had to give you a straight list of things to do, here:

  1. Go to Zangarra in Talador and pick up the legendary quest. There are a few steps to this, you'll need to go and do Skyreach (Normal or Heroic), then 3 Heroic dungeons. There's a final heroic dungeon before you advance to the "raid" stage.
  2. The raid stage requires you to collect stuff from Highmaul first. I'd suggest to venture into LFR first to get a feel for your class. You'll be collecting Abrogator Stones from the raid for the legendary quest, as well as getting gear.
  3. Once you've cleared Highmaul LFR, it will be worth you doing Blackrock Foundry LFR. You won't get on to this step of the legendary quest for a while, but the gear might still be worth it.
  4. As you get more gear and you feel happier with your class, I'd suggest clearing Mythic dungeons. They are more difficult than heroics and have the potential to drop some pretty high item level loot.
  5. Make sure you go in to your garrison (level 3) and start the shipyard quests. You'll be taken to Tanaan Jungle and you can farm more gear here, as well as complete dailies for Apexis Crystals. 
  6. Hellfire Citadel LFR is next, so get yourself into that for some loot.
  7. Once your item level is a bit higher, you can try getting into a Normal Hellfire Citadel run. You don't need to clear the raid in a day, just getting a feel for the bosses at the start is a good way to go about it.
  8. A guild will always help, so try find one that's got slightly lower progress that you can learn a bit more in.
  9. PvP is also a good way to boost your item level, since the gear still works perfectly in PvE.

Hopefully some of this helped a bit.

1. Gear

If you only have the time, do Tanaan Jungle dailies for Apexis crystals. You can buy the baleful tokens and 695 upgrade tokens.

You can also do Kazzak (The World Boss) weekly and spend a bonus roll trying to get 705 gear.


If the PvP Bonus event is on (Next week is the battleground event) getting ilvl 700 is easy obtainable in a day if your faction is doing good.


Once you hit 670 you are at the minimum ilvl for Mythic dungeons, but 695 is recommended.


Each Mythic dungeon boss has a chance to drop the 715 Heirloom Trinkets which is a nice upgrade.


2. Legendary

A great way to quickly progress through the Legendary quest line is to:

1. Hand in Apexis Crystals to complete the catch-up quests in Tanaan Jungle.

2, 20-25 Max level followers to do the Garrison Missions that reward the collectibles

3. Level 1 Shipyard. (YES LEVEL 1, upgrading your shipyard causes the missions that are spawned to have increased difficulty, unless you are willing to spend lots of Garrison Resources buying the equipment to counter the mission threads).

4. Queue LFR.


You can basically complete the Highmaul and Blackrock Foundary sections in 4 weeks. You can upgrade your shipyard to level 3 once you completed these sections.

Hellfire Citadel normally takes about 3-5 weeks to collect all 33 Tomes of Choas. (Its longer since it doesn't have any catch-up mechanics)

      About: I've decided to make a guide on Leveling Heirlooms since I did not find any quick guides for it. This is my first guide, so please feel free to give some constructive feedback   What are Heirlooms: Heirlooms are items whose stats scale with your character's level, reducing the need to replace gear whose stats are becoming too low for your level.  
      Heirloom Collections Tab: A new Heirloom system has been introduced in 6.1, adding all your heirlooms to your Collections, where they can be easily accessed without having to mail the heirlooms to other characters. Already earned heirlooms will be added to the collection once you have logged in with the character that has the heirlooms in their bank/bag. Any newly purchased heirlooms will automatically be added to your collection. To use a heirloom, simply find and click on it in the Heirlooms tab, and it will be placed in your inventory, and then equip it. You can also recreate the same heirloom if you want to dual-wield it, or have two trinkets or rings of the same type.
        Categories: Heirlooms can be divided into the following 4 categories, based on what stats they give:    Strength-Haste - Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more haste than crit. These pieces were the tanking pieces, but the Parry/Dodge stats were changed in 6.0  
      Strength-Crit  - Gear for Melee damage dealers that requires more crit than haste.
      Agility - Gear for Melee+Ranged damage dealers
      Intellect - Gear for Spell-caster Damage Dealers and Healers
      There are also subcategories for armor types, like Cloth, Leather, Mail and Plate.
      There are also subcategories for slots, like Chest, Shoulder, Leggings, Weapons etc
      How to buy Leveling Heirlooms:   Heirlooms can be brought with the following 4 currencies: Gold (g) Darkmoon Prize Ticket (DPT) Champion's Seals (CS)   From these vendors: Alliance: Krom Stoutarm Horde: Estelle Gendry Guild Vendors: (A) Shay Pressler / (H) Goram  
      Head, Shoulder, Chest, Cloak and Pants pieces cost 500 gold / 50 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 25 Champion's Seals One-handed weapons (except the fist weapons) cost 650 gold / 50 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 25 Champion's Seals  Two-handed weapons cost 750 gold / 75 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 40 Champion's Seals Off-hand weapons cost 500 gold / 50 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 25 Champion's Seals Trinkets cost 700 gold / 70 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 35 Champion's Seals The New Neck pieces cost 700 gold   Once you have brought a new heirloom, it's starting level range will be from level 1 to 60, meaning it will stop to scale up once you have reached level 60. This level cap can be increased twice by upgrading the piece with these tokens.    Armor (1-90): Ancient Heirloom Armor Casing costs 100 gold / 100 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 55 Champion's Seals / 2000 Honor Armor (1-100): Timeworn Heirloom Armor Casing costs 2000 gold Weapon (1-90): Ancient Heirloom Scabbard costs 1200 gold / 120 Darkmoon Prize Tickets / 65 Champion's Seals / 2400 Honor Weapon (1-100): Timeworn Heirloom Scabbard costs 5000 gold   List of Heirlooms per Category   Strength-Haste Plate (Warrior / Paladin / Death Knights) Head: Burnished Helm of Might Shoulders:Burnished Pauldrons of Might Chest: Burnished Breastplate of Might  Back: Ripped Sandstorm Cloak Leggings: Burnished Legplates of Might Ring: Dread Pirate Ring Weapon: Bloodsoaked Skullforge Reaver Shield: Flamescarred Draconian Deflector

      Howdy, everybody! So with the release of Legion, I thought I'd make a more updated guide to the basics of the warrior class in World of Warcraft. I did this because my old guide was about 2 years old and was made when MoP was still current! Crazy, I know. But nonetheless, I made the guide so that I could help new warriors learn the fundamentals of their class. It covers stuff such as the resource that the Warrior uses, how it's generated, what is common among the specializations,  the benefits of choosing different races for your warrior (takes up the majority of the video's time), and much more! And if this video is able to help even one person out there learn and understand the warrior a little better, it will have been worth making. The video is about 20 minutes long, so grab a drink and/or snack and enjoy the video!  :D

      I finally grew a pair and took my Disc priest into some pugs and decided to write some notes on my experience.
      First observation was that Leap of faith comes in a lot more useful than it should. Because so many mobs now drop "shite" on the floor, not just bosses, and because there are so many people who seem completely oblivious to that purple / green / swirly thing they are standing in, you find yourself pulling them out of it a lot. As my main is a ret pally, it is sad to say that it is predominantly Melee dps who are the culprits for this one, and the overwhelming majority seem to be Demon hunters (not sure if this indicates that a larger number of idiots are playing DH class or or if I just experienced an unbalanced number of them on the day)
      Atonement healing: Atonement healing is a great mechanic, but it only works if you plan well in advance. Discipline priests are not and never have been reactive healers, they have always been pro-active, and nothing has changed, now however instead of making sure your bubbles are refreshed, you are now making sure that your atonement is refreshed, so that you can spam your DPS rotation to keep those green numbers flowing. It is not worth keeping atonement up on everyone unless the entire group is taking aoe damage. As long as the tank is doing their job, the only people who should require attention are the tank themselves and the Melee dps who stray into cleave damage or damage pools. If you try to keep atonement up on everyone all the time you will have mana problems, as Plea gets more expensive the more people are buffed.
      Shadow mend: Shadow mend is your panic button. for those times when that Melee DPS just wont get out of the damaging pool, or stands in cleave damage, and their health takes a sharp drop, provided you have planned ahead, you should be able to throw in a couple of shadow mends whilst your DOT ticks keep everyone else topped up via atonement. Remembering of course that for as long as you are in combat, Shadowmend also applies a dot on your target, which can be countered with atonement healing but it is worth keeping an eye on them just in case they continue to take high damage for whatever reason. Your healing priorities are still Tank > Yourself > DPS (or Yourself > tank > dps if you are so enclined) so if you are having to spam shadow mend and bubble on a DPS (thus preventing you from atonement healing everyone else) sooner or later your mana will run out and you will just have to let natural selection run its course.
      Pain supression: to be honest I didn't need to use this often in dungeons, most tanks are pretty self sufficient in mitigating damage themselves, so its worth keeping it bound to a convenient key as a "just in case" buff, which based on my experience so far, is more likely to be needed by a melee dps than a tank. until the raids go live anyway. 
      Overall, Disc healing pugs was a challenge, and quite frantic at times, and you do take some schtick for pulling idiots out of danger but better than than taking if for letting them die. This was certainly one of the most fun healer specs ive ever played, and once i have more experience and better gear, i can imagine it will be even more so.
