Heading into Nighthold tonight for the first time

5 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

Heading into Nighthold for the first time tonight and now sure how to spec.

ST?

AOE?
MoC or Volley? Is Stampede worth taking?

 

Help please.

Check out the guide for each of the bosses. My advice is bring tomes and lots of them! 

Many of the fights have a lot of AoE but if you want to pad the heck out of the meters on Skorpyron run with volley. Rest of them are mostly single target with a bit of AoE, other than ones like High Botanist (splits into 3).

Stampede is still not worth taking because most fights have a lot of single target. 

I ran with the same old raid set up as usual, didn't swap out to way of the cobra thought as almost every fight has periodic adds that need to be cleaved. 

I managed to get 10/10N and 5/10H last night and going back in tonight to work on more. Very fun and enjoyable (although on some bosses wayyy too easy) raid!

We did the first 5 bosses hc and I ran the MM icy veins ST spec for all of them. The only one I felt I really suffered on was the first scorpion boss. Definitely worth running volley on that fight, maybe even piercing and explosive although I have not tried that aoe spec really yet. 

 

Another boss you could run aoe would be Aluriel the Spellblade (or something like that). She has 3 different add phases so lots of aoe potential there.

 

Those were the only two fights out of the first 5 bosses that my ST spec ended up outside the top 5 dps. Hope that info helps!

I did this with a guild I'm trialing with, and I don't remember what I did.  Last night,  I joined another guild group I run with for practice and did like 490k with a BM volley, and I'm still adjusting to the changes (I'm really getting tired of having to change my rotations every couple of months....).  Krosus was a different matter.  I tried MM with Piercing shot, but that wasn't really satisfactory (I'm sure I wasn't always casting it during vulnerable) and ended up going back to BM with MoC.

      Hi
      I am currently looking for people to pop into my streams and see if I can improve my dps rotation and all around wow play. Any feedback is appreciated

      I usually sim my characters to get the best possible results. I enjoy the process quite a lot and since I reached 120, I wanted to find out the best build of the spec. (Note, I didn't want to find out what to play, but rather how my own build fares in comarison.) I rarely mind a 1-2% difference. If it goes above 2%, I really mind a change. What this thread is about is mainly to bring something in the attention of those who help making the class guides, especially the talent choices. To my surprise, I was awed to find out that certain talents outperform previous "Standard" choices in the endgame, probably due to the stat squish.

      The Frost go-to build (top dps) would probably be along the lines of <Icy Talons / Cold Heart - Runic Attenuation - Frozen Pulse - Gathering Storm - Breath of Sindragosa>. What I found out primarily was that after the removal of legendaries, Cold Heart severely underperforms at most given situations resulting in a major dps drop due to the low mastery. Gathering Storm also suffers from the same problem and most of the times, Frostwyrm's Fury is better overall. The biggest surprise of them all, however, was that Inexorable Assault overperforms quite a lot, and is the first reason why I made the topic. I then started simming with the above in mind and I came across a build that some would not consider on par with top dog builds around the meta, which is the use of Horn of Winter which overperforms both its other two options when using the Breath build. Talent Sim can be seen here. Another intresting thing, which I loved, was that the 2nd best build uses Obliteration as a lvl 100 talent and no other build surpassed it (Other than the first one, obviously). So, I encourage frost players out there to give their other, less common talents a try. To the class guide author(s), I believe that the two "underdog" talents will earn their spot in the class guides.

      Thank you for your time reading this.

      So I've got these two specific items. The ACI is one of the most used trinkets on shadow priest, but compared to the Infernal, it has a low ilvl. The effect of Infernal stacks every second, and since critical strike is now the bis stat for shadow priest,  which one of the trinkets would you pick? 🙂
       
      Thanks in advance! 🙂

      Hi all,
      Im not sure where to post this but im hoping someone can help or at least point me in the right direction.
      TL;DR - My DPS is awful and i want to increase it
      I played fire & frost spec back in cata upto 85 and have recently got back into WoW again and finally realised what people talk about when they play "end game" i wish id known about raiding sooner!
      However, My DPS isnt great at all im eq 959 ilvl but my DPS comes out as low as 8-900 sometimes or i can hold a steady 1.1-1.2M. Simc comes out around 1.7M (obviously in a perfect world) but i still feel im doing something wrong.
      Ive watched videos, read forums and im sure my rotation is right. Im using Flask, Food and Runes and Pre-potting. I have some logs here of garothi.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/XRqCaL6jFVpW9MnG#fight=5&type=summary&source=23&view=events
      and this is my Raider.io - https://raider.io/characters/eu/twisting-nether/Buksh
      Not sure if ive posted this in the right place OR if ive given enough info to help. but anything would be hugely appreciated.
