Brawler's Guild: Dippy (Rank 2) (WoD 6.0.3)

42 comments

Dippy is your first Brawler's Guild Rank 2 opponent. The fight against him is very simple, but requires perfect execution and, as is the case with many Brawler's Guild fights, the slightest mistake will cause you to die. Before we delve further into the explanations, we advise you to first watch this very short video, which shows how the fight with Dippy goes.

1. Abilities and Strategy↑top

Dippy has only one ability called Peck Icon Peck. This ability has a 1-second cast time and will only hit you if you are still in melee range when the cast finishes. The damage it deals is so high that getting hit by it will kill you. Dippy also has a melee attack that will kill you if you get hit by it.

Whenever Dippy takes damage, he gets knocked back. You need to use this mechanic to keep Dippy at large. What matters is the frequency at which you damage him, so prefer spell and abilities that have a short cast time.

For ranged classes, the fight is very simple. These players need to use instant-cast spells or spells with a very short cast time to prevent Dippy from getting close to them.

For melee classes, things are more complicated. You need to use ranged abilities, however inefficient they may be. Beating the 2-minute enrage timer will probably require the use of all your offensive cooldowns. You should also try and stun Dippy as often as possible and deal as much damage as you can (in melee range) while he is stunned.

In this fight, you should use all your offensive cooldowns as soon as the fight begins.

2. Generic Advice↑top

  • Do not panic. It does not matter if you mess up your rotation, but you need to stick to the strategy.
  • If you are in for a long Brawler's Guild session, you may want to use a flask.
  • Prepot! Use a Potion of Brawler's Might Icon Potion of Brawler's Might, a Potion of Brawler's Cunning Icon Potion of Brawler's Cunning, or a Potion of Brawler's Deftness Icon Potion of Brawler's Deftness right before Dippy appears, depending on what your main statistic is.
  • When the 60-second cooldown on your potion is over, you can use the same potion again or you can use a Brawler's Healing Potion Icon Brawler's Healing Potion if you need healing.
  • Group up with other players so that you benefit from each other's buffs.
