Calling all 14/14 boomkins

4 posts in this topic

So I have contributed to most of the fights throughout SoO as a boomkin. I feel strong on almost every fight (besides galakras, can't seem to get a solid strat down) and am the lowest geared person in my comp.


Here is my armory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/arthas/Bobkin/simple

I still have some reforging to do to when I get home that will gain me like 2% crit, but for the most part that is it.


So boomkins, help me lol. I am not pulling decent numbers at all on Garrosh. My group is 13/14 and tried like 20 pulls on Garrosh last night. I am the switcher who has to switch to the weapons and am also in charge of knocking the adds back into the fire. With the position my tank puts the adds in, I run have to run out of the group to do it and then sprint back so the weapon gets placed where we need it. I wish I ran logs last night but I forgot to. My burst is fine, but by the time we wipe i'll be sitting around 140k when I can usually sustain over 200k. I don't multi dot the adds because I dont want to waste the Natures Grace uptime and because our group just kills them so fast (blade storm, hunter, destro lock, and mage). So by the time I can switch to the adds, it is not worth the GCD's to dot them becaue they will die to fast.


If any boomkins out there have done downed Garrosh, please help. I don't want to bring my group down on this fight.

Some logs would help. I would personally use the jc gems on crit over the intellect and use HotW talent over Dream although I dont know if that would be a massive difference in dps. Im sure someone that is better than myself will post soon though.

As a stand point to Renee about us boomkin sour aoe is garbage compared to other classes. That being said this is mostly a single target fight for us. Your priority is the weapon wolf rider and garrosh, don't worry about the other adds only thing to do to them is typhoon when iron star rolls past! I felt discouraged looking at damage meters at a whole but looking at logs I was either top or second on damage done to garrosh him self, don't get discouraged at over all meters on a lot of the SoO fights there's a lot of to much aoe fight when. Under 3 adds we are strong asset to group whe. Fights like this come along you need to know your role your great to help the whole raid other than just damage and real raid leader would know this and not be up set I think te first 3 full clear I was switching talents and trinkets each fight almost. But I've been sticking with INC/DOC most fights. I do te recording for my 10 man raid grp and I had to reinstall Bandi cam before out first garrosh kill so I didn't get to record it due to forgetting to change the start stop key bind -_- but I have mostly all other fights on my channel

Here is the log report from our first Garrosh kill. There was like 11 total attempts, actually more but I forgot to run logs for the first like 1 or 2 hours. We ended up killing it with like one person alive. We had 3 melee so they tunnel adds and Garrosh, I basically was on weapon/garrosh duty. I wasn't last on damage to Garrosh but I caught myself doing a couple things wrong during the fight so I knew it wouldn't be great. I am still learning boomkin tbh. I have only been raiding on my boomy for about 3 weeks in a progression fashion. I played him for fun back in cata and last tier but never got serious enough with him. So I am still learning a lot about it. Also just got my meta for this raid night so I did see a big difference from before. I still am rolling with INC/HoTW. I would like to use DOC but I just keep messing it up more than anything because I get trigger happy with my SS procs. Practice makes perfect I guess though. 


Also, how and when do I use FoN? I know that since I have my meta and amp trinket, that they are good for single target fights. I just don't know when to use them appropriately. AND....is the solar opener my go to thing now that I have meta? Or should I still stick with a lunar opener? 


Thanks for the help guys.

      Cleared Heroic and Normal Emerald Nightmare in the first week of it's release.
      Classes Needed:
      Balance Druid
      Shadow Priest
      Always looking for exceptional DPS of any class.

      About Us: 
      We are a guild, made up of former members of <Red Shift> and <Casually Addicted>, on Bleeding Hollow (PvP Server on a Chicago Datacenter) that have a common goal and will do what is necessary to achieve it. We are Shifty Casuals.
      We are a group of professional adults, who believe success in raiding doesn't correlate to number in days/hours you spend raiding. We are starting a fresh page within our guild history and sticking to a 3 day a week raid schedule.
      We don't tolerate elitism, bigotry, misogyny or any of the like. We enjoy our calm, adult environment and have no qualms with protecting it.
      We do loot council which is fair and distributes loot for the progression of the raid as a whole and not an individual player. No favoritism, no loot drama.
      We have our sights set on top 100 US for Legion and are looking for like-minded individuals to join our ranks.

      Raid Days and Times (All times in EST as that is our server time):
      · Tuesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Wednesday 8:45pm-11:45pm
      · Thursday 8:45pm-11:45pm

      Who We Want:
      Since we are reforming and building for the expansion now is a great time to get in on the ground floor and clear content with us, while prepping for the new expansion. These are some key traits that we are looking for:
      · Someone who understands that 3 nights a week raiding means that you need to bring your A-game each and every night. Attendance is expected to be near 100%. By committing to raid, you are committing yourself to our raiding schedule.
      · The ability to perform under pressure. We only recruit impressive players, and spots are always competitive.
      · Extensive class knowledge of your class. (IE: Alpha/beta testing, keeping up with theorycrafting, properly gemmed/enchanted, always be up to date on the intricacies of your class (not solely your spec(s)) and on the utility of the entire raid group.)
      · A computer that can handle 20-30 man raiding and the ability to communicate via VOIP when needed. You must have a working headset and mic, and you must be prepared to use them. We will not read chat during boss fights. Inability to give a vocal response will not be tolerated as it directly hinders progression.
      · Tough skin. We're always looking to improve ourselves as should you. Constructive criticism is encouraged, but flaming and insulting is not tolerated whatsoever.

      If you have what it takes to be a part of this great team and community, feel free to apply at our website http://shiftycasuals.wowlaunch.com/.  If you have questions about the application process, contact any of the officers for additional information.

      Hi, Does anyone of you know how much haste is enough for demon blades to proc properly ? I'm actually at 20% (crit 40% mast 20%) I can switch to 50% crit but I will have 6% haste. 
      There is now a debate whether the proc chance of demon blades during GCD is actually a buff or a nerf, if anyone could bring opinion on that too it would be great.
      thank you.

      ABOUT US
      We are a very social guild LFM for progression/semi-casual raiding and leveling. 
      When we say "semi-casual," we mean that we raid two days for three hours, can laugh about a wipe but are still serious about progression. We plan to do Normal raids (not for long) before going on to Heroic and Mythic.
      New players and all levels welcomed. We are VERY new player and new role friendly and have a few new players in the raid group already. We will work with you and get you trained up. So don't worry! 
      We do have some PvPers and an experienced RBG leader so PvP isn't out of the question.
      We're almost always on Discord and we joke around a lot. Some jokes aren't appropriate so keep that in mind. (Recommended 18+)
      Currently we are using the EPGP system (http://wowwiki.wikia.com/wiki/EPGP). The addon EPGP (DKP Reloaded), EPGP Lootmaster, DBM, and GTFO are required to be downloaded and kept up-to-date on raid nights.
      Fridays & Sundays 8pm - 11pm PST. (10pm - 1am Server Time.) NOTE: Flasks, foods, potions, and enchants will be provided for raiders on a first-come first-serve basis. People who contribute to the guild bank will also have preference. Guild repairs provided on raid nights. Trials will be provided with the aforementioned items if we can spare them after the main raiders. CURRENT PROGRESSION
