Hey Guys & Gals,

 

I am a returning player, after leaving at the first patch of MoP. I am just needing some advice and help with gearing up to begin some raiding. I have hit a very stagnant spot, I have absoloutely no idea what i am doing. I have never hit the capped level before, or raided, so i am very new to 'End game content'. I have read and re-read the  guides to my class as well.

 

I have an iLvl of 665 sub/combat rogue. I am not benefiting from heroics anymore and the gear i am finding from drops are not as good anymore. And i feel as though i am pestering my guild mates with questions all the time. I got some help with doing pvp and have managed to get a couple of purple gear and weapons. But i am still dying and taking damage alot. I want to be able to survive longer, while hitting with decent damage. The quests i have i cannot do, because i need to get into the raids or i am not a good ilvl.

 

Can anyone help me with understanding end game content, and how to better gear myself. So i am ready for legion. And able to raid and get the most out of the content?

While it's not the most interesting thing to be doing, it sounds like LFR would be a good start. It would also be worth going to Zangarra in Talador and starting your legendary quest. If I had to give you a straight list of things to do, here:

  1. Go to Zangarra in Talador and pick up the legendary quest. There are a few steps to this, you'll need to go and do Skyreach (Normal or Heroic), then 3 Heroic dungeons. There's a final heroic dungeon before you advance to the "raid" stage.
  2. The raid stage requires you to collect stuff from Highmaul first. I'd suggest to venture into LFR first to get a feel for your class. You'll be collecting Abrogator Stones from the raid for the legendary quest, as well as getting gear.
  3. Once you've cleared Highmaul LFR, it will be worth you doing Blackrock Foundry LFR. You won't get on to this step of the legendary quest for a while, but the gear might still be worth it.
  4. As you get more gear and you feel happier with your class, I'd suggest clearing Mythic dungeons. They are more difficult than heroics and have the potential to drop some pretty high item level loot.
  5. Make sure you go in to your garrison (level 3) and start the shipyard quests. You'll be taken to Tanaan Jungle and you can farm more gear here, as well as complete dailies for Apexis Crystals. 
  6. Hellfire Citadel LFR is next, so get yourself into that for some loot.
  7. Once your item level is a bit higher, you can try getting into a Normal Hellfire Citadel run. You don't need to clear the raid in a day, just getting a feel for the bosses at the start is a good way to go about it.
  8. A guild will always help, so try find one that's got slightly lower progress that you can learn a bit more in.
  9. PvP is also a good way to boost your item level, since the gear still works perfectly in PvE.

Hopefully some of this helped a bit.

1. Gear

If you only have the time, do Tanaan Jungle dailies for Apexis crystals. You can buy the baleful tokens and 695 upgrade tokens.

You can also do Kazzak (The World Boss) weekly and spend a bonus roll trying to get 705 gear.

 

If the PvP Bonus event is on (Next week is the battleground event) getting ilvl 700 is easy obtainable in a day if your faction is doing good.

 

Once you hit 670 you are at the minimum ilvl for Mythic dungeons, but 695 is recommended.

 

Each Mythic dungeon boss has a chance to drop the 715 Heirloom Trinkets which is a nice upgrade.

 

2. Legendary

A great way to quickly progress through the Legendary quest line is to:

1. Hand in Apexis Crystals to complete the catch-up quests in Tanaan Jungle.

2, 20-25 Max level followers to do the Garrison Missions that reward the collectibles

3. Level 1 Shipyard. (YES LEVEL 1, upgrading your shipyard causes the missions that are spawned to have increased difficulty, unless you are willing to spend lots of Garrison Resources buying the equipment to counter the mission threads).

4. Queue LFR.

 

You can basically complete the Highmaul and Blackrock Foundary sections in 4 weeks. You can upgrade your shipyard to level 3 once you completed these sections.

Hellfire Citadel normally takes about 3-5 weeks to collect all 33 Tomes of Choas. (Its longer since it doesn't have any catch-up mechanics)

      Looking for some advice about how to improve my DPS - I should be doing better than this I feel (using stomp build). My guild only raided NH HC and I got to the point where new gear was out-doing the 2pc 895 tier 19 set I had, which is why I'm not using 2pc tier 19 atm. If this was the wrong choice and I'm better dropping my ilevel to go back to it please let me know. I have most BM Leggos so again if I'm using the wrong combo please advise me. I would like to tweak my stats but not sure what gear would do me better than what I have. Any help you can give me would be so much appreciated.

      Hi ya'll - My Mission is to a make EVERYONE comfortable in PvP and have FUN knowing they're playing their class well, and are able to help contribute to the team. This should decrease the amount of griefers, salty dogs, ragers, and quitters in PvP throughout arena / bgs!! It's my goal <3
      Pushing towards that I wanted to share a PvP Guide I've put together breaking down talents, honor talents, and how to do the rotation for Elemental Shaman. I hope it helps you guys and gives you an edge in PvP. I'll be putting together some more to help break more pieces of PVP.
      Elemental shaman are at the BEST place they've been in for PATCHES!! So it's a great time to push rating and try some different comps out!! 
      My top 3v3 comps:
      1) Boom + Ele + MW/Hpal
      2) Destro + Ele + Heals
      3) Sub + Ele + HPriest
      4) Ele + War + Rdruid
      5) Spriest + Ele + Heals
      My top 2v2 comps - anything other than these is kind too hard to handle with how often there are melee in 2v2.
      1) MW + Ele
      2) Rogue + Ele
      3) Ele + Rdruid
      4) Ele + Hpriest
      Let me know what works for you and what doesnt!!
      The future guides will include
      1) Arena Guide - dealing with positioning, when to do damage, communicating , and key addons that will help you
      2) Battleground Guide - what specs work for each map, little tips and tricks per map type, and how to communicate with your teammates well
      3) UI - reviewing how different UI setups can REALLY enhance your pvp gameplay
      4) Keybinds and Macros - Trying to call out the little changes you can make that can make a big difference, and things you may not be thinking about for Macros/keybinds that could blow your mind.

      Hello fellow hunters!
      I have more or less played hunter exclusively since Ulduar, and I've always done pretty decent, doing respectable DPS, using my utility to it's fullest and generally been a good raider. In Legion however, I felt as if that changed, and nothing ever "clicked" - I feel like I've done poorly the entire expansion so far, so much that I even quit for a while.
      Well, now my pretty casual guild has started progressing in mythic, and even though we've managed the three first cakewalk bosses, I want to do better at the harder ones, so I'm reaching out to you guys for help. To be honest, I have no idea where to start to better myself. I really suck at handling an/or interpreting logs, but I can tell I don't do really well from the rankings... mostly gray numbers. Also, my live DPS is pretty much 200k lower than my simmed (using Raidbots quicksim feature).
      Below, I will link the logs from our progress run in mythic last night, some wipes, but two kills (Demonic Inquisition and Harjatan). Hopefully you can gleam something I'm doing wrong from them - if not I can probably get some logs from our raid tomorrow. I'll also post a link to my armory, if that helps. Raidbots doesn't seem to function properly at the moment, the connection to armory fails all the time which means I can't post any sims. I will try and edit this post with some sims later on, if possible. :P
      Logs from last night:

      My armory:

      I don't expect you guys to do wonders, but any help is appreciated!

      1st edit:
       
      Also, forgot to mention that I guess I'm willing to swap to BM if needed, but I really hate pets with a passion since the Deathwing fights, and having my pet swimming between the platforms, preventing me from using Kill Command...

      Hey guys,
      Before you start any transmog farm ensure you have the following addons:
      https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/lootappraiser
      https://mods.curse.com/addons/wow/tradeskill-master
      The farm i will be doing is located in the vanilla blackwing lair raid,
      This can be done with only a few characters as you require 2 things:
      - A way to drop combat such as invisibility or feign death
      - Magical damage such as arcane explosion for mages or hunter trap 
      the best option is still to use mage and even better would be a nightelf mage as you would have shadowmeld and invisibility.
      A detailed video on any information you may need.

      Thanks for your time and i hope you get some nice stuff.
