Bonereapers Hook Hidden Appearance

20 posts in this topic

There's a lot of theory on what you require to get this, but i can tell you what i had when i unlocked it.

AK 7, Artifact rank 22.

Using the 
"enter proving grounds, start, leave, apoc on broken isles acherus dummies. back into proving grounds, repeat method." 

Edit : It has been reported by other users on these forums that you do not need to leave the proving grounds, and that the book can drop in there.

So you can start up the TANK bronze Proving groounds - death grip the target over, festering to 8 wounds, pop apocalypse. Check the true/false macro. If false, yield to the panda and restart it. This method allows you to stand within range to continously restart the PG as needed. You choose the TANK option as the bronze dps target cannot be death gripped.

 

*****I will update this further later today!


Allows you to get a lot more casts of apocalypse per hour. My total farming time to get his appearance was about 4 hours.

I Used a macro to check hidden achievement 2000/2000 summoned ghouls which was NOT completed.

To the best of my knowledge, the book/ghoul required only comes from Apocalypse, not AotD.

My conclusion is, literally any time after you get AK 6 you have a random chance of getting the book/npc to spawn whenever Apocalypse is cast.

I used a weak aura that sounded a horn and presented a banner to advise of the book drop, but even without that, the NPC will chat in your default chat window. and even if you don't read the book, 
you can run the macro "is quest complete id etc" 
If it comes up "true" you can literally go to putricide and go down the trap door.

Hope this is of help to some.

 

(if people want the same macros\weak aura setup, I will add them to this post tomorrow)

Cheers, Timmo

Macro's and Add-ons I used:

1. Tells you true or false, not if the book has dropped, but more so if you are eligible to go down the trap door in putricides lab. It will only change to true after the book drops, not when it drops.

#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44188))

2. Check to see if you have raised over 2000 Ghouls minimum, only posting this as someone asked me for it, because i had not completed 2000/2000 when my book dropped. 
It will read as "false" 2000/2000 until you reach it, then change to 
"true" 2000/2000

/run print(GetStatistic(11231))

3. Using Weak Auras - this is the one that goes mental when the book actually drops. So most likely what you all are chasing. You need to have Weakauras2 add on already and you can just enter the import string required. it will sound a air horn and pop up on your screen "AYYYYYY LMAO BOIS" - lol i did not make this weak aura and you can change the text and colour if you wish.

that is both genius and painful at the same time XD

great suggestion and mini guide though, for those who really want the appearance, this does seem like most expeditious method.

Going in and out of the proving grounds made my head want to explode.

But, it really was the most efficient way.

Some people have even made macros to enter and leave PG. I didn't bother with that though.

Glad to be of any help!

But - that part about AotD

To the best of my knowledge, the book/ghoul required only comes from Apocalypse, not AotD.

I got mine by spamming Apoc, not AotD, and we have no confirmation of the book dropping from an AotD cast. (atleast according to my research)

There are also reports that you can just keep using apoc on the bronze dps challenge in proving grounds and keep resetting it and that the book can even drop in there. (originally to be thought only to have chance to drop in the Broken Isles, hence the entering PG and exiting to Acherus dummies as it counts as Broken isles)

I cannot personally confirm this though.

Got mine with the following

AR rank 6
AoD Menagarie Glyph
Enter proven grounds
Bronze tank challenge
Death grip add
Hit below macro  (returns true / false reading if you've hit the 2000 ghoul mark)

Quote

#showtooltip
/cast Apocalypse
/script print(IsQuestFlaggedCompleted(44188))


Once summoned, if FALSE
Click on NPC , select YIELD
Reclick NPC commend Bronze Tank Challenge 
Repeat as Above.

Got mine after an hour. 
No need to leave the proven grounds.

This method will likely be better. Doing it myself I found the loading times (albeit i was installing at the time) where pretty murderous. I just need to put in a movie or something and get ready to grind away. It's been awhile since i hardcore focused on something so i need to get back into the swing of things. OG maplestory up, and farm same thing for 18 hours XD

Yeah, I should have stated you can stand next to the NPC in proven grounds and Death Grip the mob to you so you don't actually have to move at all during this process.  Once burnt into muscle memory after about 10 mins, it becomes ever so quick to rinse repeat, much more so than leaving and re-entering etc.

blood one was one of the first to be found

it drops from the withered training scenario in the big chest at the end, the lowest recorded score was 570 on drop, they aren't sure if it requires defeating all 6 bosses ( i was wondering if time limit but that seems to have no impact) or just plain RNG. so yeah, every 3 days you get a shot with the withered training

i completed it, killed all enemies had a score over 700 something, had 48 withered when i finished, and it didn't drop, so i think its more min score + RNG kinda deal.

I got mine after killing everything but the room with all the mana dudes with 600+ score, and I absolutely love the axe! I want the all the alternative skins for it, but idk a good way to get 1k HKs as blood. Idk if it makes a difference, but the run I got it, I did it as blood.

I can confirm that you dont need to click the book. You just need to spawn it. Made a macro to spam apocalypse over the night and spawned the book got mad that i missed the spawn but went to icc anyways and got the hook.

the 1k kill is actually easier than you may think because i do believe (i could be wrong) that honorable kills count, ie as long as you tag them and you die you get cred. so with the bonus bg going on this week its actually an amazing time to get the red one

It's possible to get the blood one from nightfallen cache - that's where I got mine.

Sorry to hijack this thread to mention something else about the blood dk hidden appearance, but there seems to be a bug - I only have 88 honor kills (according to armory), but I got the 1k honor kills skin unlocked, somehow. The 200 wq and 100 dungeons one was easy, you should get that just by playing the game.

      Hello there! Which artifact and spec you recomended me to choose on leveling 100-100?
      Thx!
    • By Demonicka
      Which is better an 865 relic with Firestorm: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191740-firestorm#related:improved-by or an 865 relic with Earthen Attunement: http://www.wowdb.com/spells/191598-earthen-attunement?artifactRank=1

    • By Pandacho
      Updated for Legion patch 7.1
      Frequently Asked Questions:
      Q: Where are all my glyphs?
      A: Major glyphs (playstyle affecting) are gone. The remaining ones (former Minor) are purely cosmetic now and only affect the appearance of spells.
      New glyphs are consumable that are being applied directly to a spell in your spellbook.
      Q: Where are all the Elemental shields?
      A: Water shield was removed completely, Earth shield is a PvP talent now, Lightning shield is an Ench spec talent.
      Q: Where are my Elementals?
      A: They were removed from the resto spec together with the Primal Elementalist talent.
      Q: Seriously? What else has gone?
      A: Spirit has gone. Now you have a standard mana pool and a standard mana regen (44000 mp5) both in and out of combat. Some other healing classes have a talent or an artifact trait for increased mana regen, resto shamans - do not.
      You can’t see Spell Power in your Character Info or on your weapon - it was merged with the Intellect. So for math purposes, Int=SP. If you want to see detailed attributes, use an addon, for example DejaCharacterStats
      Damaging abilities: Fire Elemental, Searing totem, Elemental Blast, Frost Shock have gone.
      Our damaging abilities now are Flame Shock, Lava Burst, Lightning Bolt and Chain Lightning.
      Ghost wolf speed boost: the glyph has gone. You have a Class Hall Champion Reghar Earthfury boosting your wolf form speed in the outdoor world.
      Q: Where is the Totemic Projection, I want to move my totems around?
      A: The talent has gone. All the healing totems now spawn at your feet and remain there, all the utility totems has a targeting reticle so you can place them anywhere in range.
      Q: What professions should I choose for my shaman?
      A: Professions don’t affect directly your gameplay so choose whatever suits your playstyle.
      I'd suggest Enchanting/Alchemy/Jewelcrafting or Alchemy/Herbalism (if you are comfortable with gathering) for the raiders and Alchemy/Engineering for those who aim for Mythic+ content.
      Q: What is the stats priority for a resto shaman?
      A: Intellect>Mastery>Haste>Crit>Versatility
      In-depth explanations and math are done by Gardiff (Mythic resto shaman on Kil’jaeden-US) - a theorycrafter and the Resto Shaman Secondary Stat Simulator developer. The SIM and walls of text are here and here.
      Q: But why not to prioritize Crit, Resurgence is still the only regen mechanic outside of base regen?
      A: It is, but it is garbage, in-depth explanation is here:
      Q: What are the right talents for solo playing/Mythic+/raiding?
      A: You can find different talent builds below in this post.
      Q: How should I fill the Artifact for the best performance in raids?
      A: Resto shaman Artifact Calculator
      1) Right path up to the Gold Trait
      2) Left path up to the Gold Trait (yes, Tidal Pools it’s not a great gain but leaving it out doesn’t help either)
      3) Jump to the third Gold Trait through either side (right or left) - they both are not a great gain for the raids, leave Refreshing Currents for the very end.
      I would suggest to go through the left side for 2 reasons:
      - the Sense of Urgency affects our raid healing even not being used to its fullness in every fight, while Servant of the Queen doesn't affect our healing at all.
      - While Ghost in the Myst was firstly considered as a mostly PvP talent, it helps a lot to mitigate damage from certain boss abilities and is not restricted to a cooldown like Astral Shift or to usage of a specific spell like Caress of the Tidemother.
      Q: May / should I level as a resto? I hate dps spec / afraid to lose artifact power.
      A: Resto spec is a viable spec for leveling while definitely not great. The main concern here is that you kill mobs slower than any dps spec, the advantage is that you are literally unkillable in any situation.
      Don’t worry about the Artifact: no matter which one you will choose on lvl 100, you will get the Artifact quests for the remaining specs on lvl 102.
      Don’t worry about losing artifact power during leveling: almost all of it is stored in consumable items so just respec to resto before using them.
      Don’t worry about upgrading your offspec Artifact during leveling: first 13 traits on every artifact are very cheap, their cost starts to jump in geometric progression only from the 14th trait.
      Spending AP for the first 13 traits of your offspec artifact for easier leveling wouldn’t hold back your main weapon even for 1 day.
      Q: I’m new to resto, what are all these HPM, QA, TW abbreviations?
      A: The most frequently used abbreviations are:
       
      Talent Builds:
      Soloing content in resto spec:
      The main idea of a talent build for solo playing is to maximise your dps relying on passive/instant healing, while keeping mobs away as long as possible.
      Tier 1: Torrent (increases your instant heal)
      Tier 2: Gust of Wind or Graceful Spirit. I personally would prefer GS for the additional passive increase of movement speed in Ghost Wolf form.
      Tier 31: Earthgrab Totem to keep your enemies away
      Tier 4: Ancestral Guidance to convert your damage into healing
      Tier 5: Earthen Shield Totem: redirects a part of every attack against you and allies to itself.
      Tier 6: Echo of the Elements: double HST, Riptide and Lava Burst - extremely useful.
      Tier 7: Doesn't matter: nothing here will affect your solo experience.
       
      Mythic+ (+2- +7):
      Tier 1: Torrent.
      Torrent pretty much turns Riptide into a full power instant heal and pair nicely with EotE.
      Tier 2: Graceful Spirit - most of low Mythic+ are being run for 3 chests so it's good to have an additional constant speed boost.
      Tier 3: Lightning Surge Totem.
      Tier 4: Ancestral Guidance.
      Tier 5: Earthen Shield Totem or Ancestral Vigor.
      I personally prefer AV because M+ are all about fast moving forward so you'll find the group constantly run out of your shield.
      Tier 6:: Echo of the Elements.
      EotE has two advantages: double Riptide and HST for healing and double Lava Burst for dps. Unlike in raids, both Riptide and HST receive back the 2nd charge while we are moving between packs.
      Tier 7: Ascendance.
      You rarely can make a good use of CH in 5-man and having another healing CD leaves you more time to dps :)
      For really low M+ (+2 - +5) run with a highly experienced group you may actually use even Wellspring. It's good when you dps most of time rather than heal so hitting an AoE heal button once in a while will leave you more time to dps.
       
      Mythic+ (+8- +10....):
      Tier 1: Undulation
      Undulation is fully utilized in here because of constant need in heavy single target healing.
      Tier 2: Wind Rush Totem or Graceful Spirit. Take WRT if a group speed boost is needed during the encounter, otherwise GS.
      Tier 3: Lightning Surge Totem
      Tier 4: Crashing Waves for the best synergy with Undulation
      Tier 5: Earthen Shield Totem or Ancestral Vigor.
      I personally prefer AV because M+ are all about fast moving forward so may find the group constantly run out of your shield but for +10 with certain affixes you may need EST mitigation as well.
      Tier 6:: Echo of the Elements.
      Tier 7: Ascendance
       
      Raid:
      These are generally preferred talents, though there are fights where some tweaking would give a better performance especially when progressing.
      Tier 1: Torrent (increases your instant heal)
      You may want to use Unleash Life paired with Chain Heals on Ursoc or Undulation on Dragons. 
      Tier 2: Wind Rush Totem or Graceful Spirit. Take WRT if a raid speed boost is needed during the encounter, otherwise GS. Frankly, I didn't find WRT any particular use in raids except of fast moving out from Ambush in Elerethe encounter.
      Tier 3: Lightning Surge Totem is pretty useful on trash.
      Tier 4: Crashing Waves or Ancestral Guidance.
      Crashing Waves if you go with Undulation in Tier 1, otherwise AG - its synergy with CBT is just awesome.
      Tier 5:  Ancestral Vigor for most of the fights because people tend to move a lot and constantly leave your Earthen Shield Totem area.
      Earthen Shield Totem may be worth considering on fights like Ursoc or Dragons where at least half of the raid stacked during high damage.
      Ancestral Protection Totem - I didn't find it useful on any fight so far.
      Tier 6: Cloudburst Totem. Not really debatable best talent in this tier for most of fights - saves a lot of mana accumulating not only your healing but overhealing too and releasing the stored power to actually injured targets.
      Bottomless Depths are useless because 1) Resurgence returns a miserable amount of mana and 2) Proccing Resurgence is our very last concern when raid drops below 60%.
      Echo of the Elements should be considered for the fights with constant movement where it's hard to maintain full amount of CBT and charge the totem properly.
      Tier 7: High Tide for most fights.
      The concerns we had before Legion went live about mana management are gone - resto shamans are in a really good place right now mana wise. There's no particular problem with spamming CH when needed so High Tide is still a good to go talent.
      Ascendance may be nice for fights where you can't make a good use of CH (heavy ST damage) or when you raid is short of healing CDs.
      Wellspring underperforms in raids. It just does less healing than High Tide or Ascendance.
       
      What trinkets are our BiS?
      It's hard to say really because of this new implemented system where every item may be upgraded to somewhat between 840-895 ilvl and to have (or not) a socket.
      A more or less general agreement for now (Emerald Nightmare) is that Vial of Nightmare Fog and Heightened Senses are very good. 
      Chrono Shard and An'she's Infusion of Light with Mastery are worth considering same as Unstable Arcanocrystal. Horn of Cenarius is considered a bad choice and it's better not to use Cocoon of Enforced Solitude if you have something with good secondaries.
      Crafted trinkets (both with mana saving and crit) are worth considering if you don't mind the price and didn't have any luck with raid drops.

      Greetings everyone!
      I'm new to this site and abbreviations in general when it comes to WoW, since it was 4 years ago since I played WoW. I've played for some time now as an Arms Warrior and finally found out that "Helgar" gives you the quest for the hidden Arms artifact, when you've reached "AK3".
      Source: http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/2066048-Has-anybody-unlocked-the-The-Arcanite-Bladebreaker?p=42932558&viewfull=1#post42932558
      Now what I am wondering is, what does "AK3" mean and how do I obtain it? Thank you for your time,
