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 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.

      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.

      I'm not entirely sure what I am doing wrong that is getting me this result, but I am getting about a 30k dps difference on training dummy when I use a defile, clawing shadows, shadow infusion build than when I use the recommended talents. I left the rest of my talents unchanged and I have yet to see where the dps difference is coming from (arbiter or clawing shadows), but I'm very confused as to how this could happen.

      Defile damage breakdown, Arbiter damage breakdown
      I felt like I had a harder time keeping my disease up and using coldheart on cooldown (or rather whenever at max stacks) with the arbiter build. Am I missing some key thing or do I just need to git gud? Thanks in advance for any help.

      I'm sure this is a popular topic so I apologize if this is the 1 millionth time you've seen this.
      I haven't played a level capped character since probably Wrath of the Lich King.  Friends are sucking me back in and I'm thinking about picking up Warrior.  I used to love tanking as a warrior but unfortunately (or fortunately) it looks like all the tank slots are filled.  Basically my question is, is rolling Warrior a wise choice?  Are they fun to play?  Pretty sure id pick Fury as my DPS spec but I don't know how it or arms plays now. I want to be competitive on the meters against my guildmates but I don't think we're going to be super hardcore.
      I suppose this is "living the dream" but i want to be near the top of the DPS charts while having fun doing it. Is the warrior for me? Other classes I was looking at were Shadow Priest, Hunter, or Death Knight.
      I guess I should also mention that I haven't played in a LONG time so ill probably be doing things like world pvp, BGs, 5-mans, ect.  I'm not an Arena type of person.

      Hello!
       
      I was recently asked to start playing enhance for my guild. So nothing else to do than grabbing the good ol' hammers and start swinging. I've read the guides here on IV, watched a few videos on Youtube and been on and off on the enhance discord.  I thought I got the hang of it, felt pretty comfortabel doing a few bosses but when I skimmed through  our loggs from a few of the bosses I noticed that my preformance is more or less  garbage.
      I decided to test my luck here. I was hoping that someone could analyze my loggs and give me a few pointers on what and what not to do.
      I would also appreciate  a few tips and trix about how to start analyzing my preformance myself so I dont have to turn back here as soon as the RNG gods are not with me.
      Here is the log I was refering to:

      And here is my armoy: 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/stormreaver/blu
       
      In advance I apologize for any misspelling and other nonsense that might confuse you. I should point out that English is not my main language.
      If you need any other basic information in order to help me just give me a shout and I will comply.
       
      Thanks!
