Feng the Accursed Shroud of Reversal Timings (Lighting Fists)

3 posts in this topic

So in my raid group, I am the one with the Shroud of Reversal and I was wonder how to get Lighting Fists captured perfectly. On normal, I have a 50% success rate, but we are doing heroics now and I wanted to find a way to get 100% success rate.

What I have been doing is waiting for Feng to do his Lighting Lash, then pop my Shroud ASAP. The timing works out that the other tank will get stunned when I am channeling it.

The thing is though, am I suppose to channel it on the other tank while he is stunned? I am sorta confused on the mechanics behind how to capture the stun.

Basically, you want the other tank to get hit by the lightning (damage and stun) while you are channeling Shroud on him.

What has been working for me these past few weeks is to start chanelling Shroud on my OT as soon as Feng starts to cast Lightning Fist.

Our causes of failure were always one of these 2 things: Either the tank moved out of it and didn't get it, or he stood his back to the wall and the lightning didn't hit him for whatever reason (if the lightning doesnt have a clear path behind the tank it acts kinda funny sometimes).

As long as the boss is not facing a wall and your other tank doesn't move, you should be good to get 100% catches.

One last thing, if ever he doesn't get hit by hit, it is possible for him to run back into the lightning while you still are chanelling, it moves slowly enough for him to catch up and get hit.

Easiest way to get a 100% success rate is learn to recognize the boss's movement when he is about to cast fists, and then channal as he is winding up for the cast. You can see him wind up over his right shoulder, then slam forward where the lightning comes from. If you want to study the animation, use the WoWHead model viewer for Feng and look at the animation for "Slam" - he uses this animation, although it happens a bit slower than the WoWHead one (since he casts while his hands are raised). See the 0:43 second mark in this video:

Also, on heroic I'd suggest assigning a mobile ranged to be the person you channel on, not the other tank. They pre-position ahead of the boss and can much more easily soak the stun vs having one of the tanks do it.

      Just throwing this shower thought out there because why not.
      Would it be possible with reasonable amount of resources and time that you have available, to create couple of generic general gameplay/map guides for Heroes of the Storm? There are already a couple for other games, although mostly pretty old ones. Things like general guidelines for tanking, healing and stutter stepping as well as map guides of what heroes are which priority and how the maps play out? You already have some maps covered at the "map specific advice", but as the "new hero guide format" cuts the map specific advice part off, would adding such thing be possible. Not that I would be desperately in need of one, but if I had to guess, a lot of people would be glad to get them available.

      Since shield block doesn't do donkey dick for most of the tank buster mechanics and the boss auto attacks hit like a wet noodle, is it even worth gearing haste at all? Wouldn't I be better off going for only mastery/versatility?

      I have now, 4 trinkets that I am conflicted on using as they all seem to have decent stats and usages/passives. I am mainly tanking mythic dungeons, although our guild does normal EN but I have no problem there.
       
      What do you think would be the best 2 to use in general?
       
      I have the following:

      Hello,
      I recently switched from DK Tank to Paladin Tank (Similar stat prios) and I was wondering how much haste should I aim for and is Versatility more important than Haste like AskMrRobot says? 
      I raid twice a week but I mainly do M+ Content and I seem to be stuck at M+7 so if you have any advice there I will gladly take it. 
      Here's a link to my Paladin. http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/eonar/Stenbock/simple
      I am in my raid spec currently and I switch my lvl 100 talent to Last Defender when I do M+.
       
      Any help is appreciated. :)

      I'm curious just how married to Versatility as the primary stat are we as Vengeance? 
      I ask because I've noticed a marked upswing in my own success once I just started focusing on Haste and Mastery, in that order. Granted, what I've done so far tops out at Mythic 5mans (as of this writing nothing higher has been made available). Quicker CDs on some key abilities, Mastery affecting Demon Spikes + Attack Power+Damage/Healing from Soul Cleave, and the fact that it takes a lot of Versatility to move the needle, it FEELS better. I'm just curious if this is the kind of stat prioritization you see the benefit of once you get into the Heroic and Mythic and Mythic+ levels of content?
