Returning player 6.@

3 posts in this topic

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)

      "For AoE there are two options. The first of these is Loramus Thalipedes' Sacrifice, further increasing the power of  Fel Rush for each subsequent target you charge through, though recent changes have diminished how powerful this is. 7.2 has extended this to apply with the first target hit, but are still unremarkable."
      This may sound stupid but I was hoping someone could just help me clarify this last sentence of this section. "7.2 has extended this to apply with the first target hit, but are still unremarkable." I'm a bit confused as to what this means. Is this sentence saying that the damage is "unremarkable" in a good way? Or bad way? I've just received the legendary boots and am trying to see if they're a good choice in fights with a lot of adds. 
      Thank you for your time.

      Hi, boys and girls!
      I recently played Evo-Shaman again (Brian Kiblers version basically), after having a lot of fun (and frustration) at the beginning of Whispers of the old Gods with an Evo-Deck and trying the Jade version in Mean Streets of Gadgetzan. But all the time I played it, it felt like I had a lot of bad luck with Evolve. Always getting something worse than I had before. So now I tried to prove myself wrong by doing some math (or counting). And I want to share my results with you! Enjoy!
       
      First off the five different classes:
      Bomb : possibly gamewinning. Overwhelming stats and/or powerful abilities. The best you can get for this price (e.g. Succubus, Savannah Highmane, Aya Blackpaw, Cairne Bloodhoof)
      Better : better stats than before (e.g. 2/3 from evolving a Totem) or a some kind of useful effect (e.g. Deathrattle) (e.g. Kindly Grandmother, Ornery Direhorn, Argent Commander)
      Mediocre : underwhelming stats or a downside / probably useless effect. (e.g. Scavenging Hyena, Frozen Crusher, Cabal Shadow Priest)
      Bad : worse than before. Terrible stats compared to other cards of the same cost (e.g. Grimestreet Outfitter, Nerubian Prophet)
      Awful : cards that can make you loose the game, are entirely useless in most situations or have extremly bad stats (e.g. Doomsayer, Ancient Watcher, Big-Time Racketeer)
       
      And some important things to considerate:
      cards are evaluated like if you are ahead or equal to your opponent (e.g. Abomination is Aweful)
      cards with useful effects are evaluated compared to an every day situation with a somewhat aggressive Evolution-Shaman-Deck. Likewise minions like The Voraxx are Bad, because you will not be able to use there ability.
      Minions with one Health are most of the time Bad
      Minions are compared to other minions you can get. Likewise nearly any 6-drop is better than the 2/2 from Doppelgangster but getting a Fight Promoter is still bad.
      Minions are partly evaluated like you would evolve them at the end of your turn and/or after you played them (so with not much mana left), as you most of the time would do. Likewise minions with triggered abilities like Gadgetzan Auctioneer are most of the time Bad.
      Of course Battlecries doesn't matter at all.
      Jades can get pretty much any manacost, so they fit everywhere.
      Aya Blackpaw is evaluated like if you get her while playing other Jade-cards in your deck (as you normally do in Evo-Shaman) otherwise she is mediocre.
      Finally some cards are very debatable and fit more in between classes, so you might come up with different results sometimes (e.g. Nat Pagle)

      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII III - 23
      Bad IIIII IIIII IIIII IIIII - 20
      Awful IIIII (e.g. Abomination, Bomb Squad) [6,94%] - 5
       
      Charge: 2 (2,8% chance) (Doomguard and Leeroy Jenkins)
      Taunt: 11 (15,3% chance)
       
      5-Mana (Doppelgangster) (5/5 vanilla is mediocre)→
      Bomb IIIII (e.g. Kabal Trafficker) - 5
      Better IIIII IIIII IIIII II - 17
      Mediocre IIIII IIIII IIIII IIII - 19
      Bad IIIII IIIII - 10

      Bad IIIII IIIII I -11
      Awful I (Baron Geddon) [3,22%] - 1
       
      Charge: 0 (0% chance)
      Taunt: 4 (12,9% chance)
       
      Summary:
      It seems that you can get a lot of good stuff (mainly 2/3s and 3/2s) from evolving 1-Mana-minions like your totems and Primalfin-Murlocs. The danger of getting Doomsayer seems pretty low (1,3%).
      Evolving 2-Mana-Minions seems pretty good too. You get a decent chance of getting real big bombs and high-value-cards, but there is also some pretty bad stuff. Also you have to evolve your valuable totems (these are your 2-Mana-Minions most of the time).
      Evolving 3-, 4-, 5- and 6-Mana-minions are pretty much 50/50. They got a lot of awesome stuff, but also some pretty bad results.
      Especially the 5-Mana Evolve is important, since you will often get three 6-drops from one 5-drop (Doppelgangster), so getting a bunch of 4/5s is still awesome.
      Jades will probably turn into something similar or worse most of the time.

      Playing my BM hunter, feel like I should be doing better than 7-800k dps with my ilevel. Links to my logs from tonight (several failed attempts at 4th boss before we called it), ToS heroic. Also links to my armoury and wowprogress. If anyone can see something obvious I'm doing wrong please let me know. I did try MM but can't get on with it.
      TY in advance xxx
