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.

      I dont know what im doing wrong, ive have the right talents, and doing my rotation in order, and yet i am doing horrible dps. 
      I am currently using the rotation stated on icy-veins.
      ive been out dpssed by other warlocks from my guild, pugs and in lfr (i know, but still) and i dont know what i am doing wrong. 
      this is the profile of a guildie, who does a ton more dps than me. https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/stormrage/hulabaloo
      If someone has some advice, it's greatly appreciated..
