All of our Balance guides have been made pointless.
Icy Veins is well known for really in-depth and well written guides, but when it comes to Boomkins, they have all been outdone by this very detailed, some would say flawless instruction. The trick is, it seems, to have one of their own teach them directly:
Owl see, owl do indeed. You'd better believe those little ones will be owning the DPS charts in Emerald Nightmare and beyond, at least until that awkward teenage stage when they'll all rebel and switch to feral DPS instead.
I don't really like my class changes to my mains. I've decided that I am going to do a last minute re roll as a caster / rdps and get into the raiding scene in Legion. I initially thought about a hunter or a mage, but there are already a million of those out there, which means it may be harder to get into a guild as a hunter or a mage because most guilds likely already have a few on there raid teams. After a little bit of reading about Legion class changes and looking at a few different class/spec rotations on Icy Veins, the balance druid started to peak my interest. Which brings me to my question: Are balance druids (boomkins) good in raiding? Are they sought after (are guilds always recruiting them)? Or are there a million of them so there will never be openings for that class in most guilds. Basically are they a viable raiding spec. What is their role in a raid? Are they a pretty simple class to learn or is there a high learning curve?
Anyone who has raided around balance/boomkin druids or even has or does raid as one, could you please give me some info. Thank you!
So guys I will now teach you how to get the title "The Proven Assailant" from proving grounds. To get the title you have to do 30+ endless waves and this is incredibly easy, especially if you have the legendary ring. I really encourage everybody to get it who cares about achievements/titles since it really requires no effort. If you already have this title just ignore this guide.
So you're probably thinking, fury or arms? The best spec is currently arms, since fury is really bad with low crit chance (not much enrage uptime etc).
15 talent: Double Time. Double charge is simply the best since you normally don’t use charges regularly and it’s nice to use two right away if you need it.
30 talent: irrelevant
45 talent: Sudden Death. Best single target and proving grounds is mostly single target. You’re normally
60 talent: Shockwave. Really useful for stunning the banana adds in the perfect place and sweeping strikes execute them.
75 talent: irrelevant
90 talent: Bladestorm. You might ask: Why not avatar? Simply because bladestorm destroys everything(try it out) and you can have it for almost every wave. Another big plus is you can take the Amber bubbles without getting stunned. This talent is a must!
100 talent: Ravager. Not reallyt hat crazy but I feel this talent is best, compared to the other poor alternatives.
“Well I have full mythic HFC, I will just go in and rape everything”. Yerh you can do but you’re just gonna make things so much harder for yourself.
To get the best gear for proving grounds you need to have every piece of equipment as close to 600 as possible EXCEPT for trinkets and legendary ring.
So yerh uneqiup that mythic weapon and put on a 630 weapon or something lower. Weapon scaling is insane and therefore only makes it harder. BiS drops from skyreach normal but you do not need to farm this to just get the title.
If you’re having trouble getting 600 item lvl gear I recommend using heirloom gear(fully upgraded). Heirloom gear is 605 item lvl, which is pretty much the best you can get without putting too much effort into farming gear.
Good trinkets are Alchemy trinket and on use stats(clarity, scabbard, double sided coin).
For consumables simply use greater strength flask and critical food buff. You can also use Mecha-Blast Rocket, which do insane damage. Use these if you’re having trouble
So yerh I could explain in text what to do on each wave, but that’s gonna take quite a while. If you are curious about what to do on each wave, simply watch the video above. I can quickly recap what waves you need to be alert on:
Wave 1: easy
Wave 2: Normal(kill healer and interrupt):
Wave 3: BLADESTORM!!!
Wave 4: Hard(use the amber bubbles to kill the adds)
Wave 5: Easy(use CDS’ to kill the big guy when shield is down)
Wave 6: Place a ravager in the middle and kill the big dudes:
Wave 7: Bladestorm!
Wave 8: Kill healer
Wave 9: Hard( Kill banana dude and use amber bubble)
Wave 10: USE CDS and ring when shield is off. Easy
Hi guys, so as the title says I'm back on WoW after a bit of time away and I was lucky enough to find an openraid group soon after starting back that helped me get the HC Archi kill.
A quick look at Recount showed me second to last on the meters so I was hoping some of the more experienced boomies here might have some advice based on my logs? I know ilvl difference was a factor in the run but I do feel like I could do with improving in general.
(P.S. I know there's a similar thread up right now but I didn't wanna go hijacking somebody else's thread)
Hey so ive noticed in my logs that my dps is really low in the grey percentile so i was just looking at some people to take a look at my logs and gear to give help on what i can improve.
