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 am following the rotation given in the class page on here. My parses are terrible for my ilvl and I don't understand what i am doing wrong and why my dps isn't higher. i havent been using firestarter because i feel like the boss is only above 90% for 5 seconds. Been using RoP for most fights because i have T21 4p.

      Hiya!
      Can someone tell me what i'm doing wrong with my frostmage, since it feels like I'm underperforming compared to other guys with the same ilvl.
      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/pMdCBwHG6mQb712z This is a normal pug run I did yesterday.
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/draenor/blastgasm link to my armory.
       
      Edit: Will add a bit more info now since I was in a hurry when i wrote this.
       
      I know i dont have the optimal legendaries. Only got 2 to drop on my mage. The gloves and the waist. During this normal run i probably had the wrong talent setup for some fights (arctic gale on tichondrius etc.). The question is, what can i improve? Do i need to get Better legendaries or is My rotation slightly off?

      Hi guys! 
      https://worldofwarcraft.com/en-gb/character/chamber-of-aspects/erthol   So this is my mistweaver monk here. Now I have actually managed to start raiding and do normals every week. However I have a huuuuge problem, specifically that my hps is really, really low. A good example I think would be this Aggramar fight: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/jKcxbLXrQ9pknDva#fight=27&type=healing   You can see how the other monk had much higher hps than me. I do understand my leggos are subpar, but meh, bad luck one could say. What I don't understand is what I'm doing wrong. I try to use renewing mist on cd, use Vivify. I know I haven't used Effuse too much, but that's because I was trying out fistweawing. Anyways, all my other logs are basically the same. I have way too high overhealing as well. Any help would be great, because I'm lost, I love the monk, I love the style, but somehow can't get it to work as I would like it to. Please help meeeeee! Thanks for the feedback.

      Anybody got any experience/tips or tactics they use as a fire mage ( or other specs that have any knowledge that may be able to apply in generality )
