Sha of Pride:

  • you should grip the big add spawning in the back of the room to your group
  • Use spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, if on prison duty
  • plenty of magic damage to soak with spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell

Galakras:

Iron Juggernaut:

Dark Shamans:

  • Slowing green adds: Use inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Death and Decay for additional slow/damage
  • You can try to spread your diseases to the adds altough it is kind of risky. Use spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell and be quick wink.png
  • If still having problems with the adds spell_frost_wisp.jpgChilblains can be chosen (ideal for frost, for unholy only if you manage to spread your diseases, see point above). But this reduces your mobility by not having spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance, and you have to move a lot on this fight

Nazgrim:

  • ability_deathknight_asphixiate.jpgAsphyxiate is very useful for stunning adds, although you lose some of your mobility
  • ability_deathknight_aoedeathgrip.jpgGorefiend's Grasp is useful for quickly grouping the adds for AoE, or ability_deathknight_remorselesswinters2.Remorseless Winter for stunning. Especially towards the end, since there will be more adds present

Malkorok:

Spoils of Pandaria:

Thok:

Siegecrafter Blackfuse:

  • spell_shadow_antimagicshell.jpgAnti-Magic Shell will be your friend. You will get a lot of runic power by soaking the unavoidable ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverload and prevent a lot of damage. Also useful if you have troubles dodging ability_siege_engineer_purification_beamMatter Purification Beam on the conveyor belt. Also keep in mind both glyphs. inv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Anti-Magic Shell helps in soaking ability_siege_engineer_overload.jpgOverloadinv_glyph_majordeathknight.jpgGlyph of Regenerative Magic should be useful, if you need AMS on the belt.
  • Being on the belt, it is much easier to just run (instead of jump) into the tubes at the end of the belt. spell_shadow_demonicempathy.jpgDeath's Advance should give you enough flexibility
  • Taking spell_shadow_contagion.jpgUnholy Blight as a talent choice is advisable, especially if being on belt business due to more frequent disease applications needed

/edit: Oh, thought you would copy that and replace the spells with nice links. wink.png

Since you just linked it, I edited in the spells myself and corrected some typos smile.png

Thanks for editing. I don't have the time to copy/paste/edit for all the threads, so I decided that for T16, I'd just link to the contributions. It's better than eventually falling behind and not being motivated anymore to keep things updated.

Malkorok

 

Pop army pre-pull and when the Ancient Miasma is applied, immediately Death Pact to get a great boost to the shield right from the start.

and some blackfuse tips added

 

 

Just putting in that, using spell_holy_consumemagic.jpgDark Simulacrum on Wavebinder Kardris in the Dark Shaman encounter will steal spell_frost_frostshock.jpgFroststorm Bolt. This scales with frost DK mastery and can crit in excess of 1m damage easily. Using the glyph is recommended to lower the CD.

Sorry for the delay, but I finally managed to find some time to update the opening thread (got married recently tongue.png)

For DPS and Tanking.

 

Iron Juggernaut (HC):

- You can use Anti-Magic Zone on the Shock Pulse to reduce damage taken to raid. Preferably used on the first.

- You can use Anti-Magic Shell with glyph to compleetly soak a Shock Pulse

- Recommended to use Lichborne + Anit Magic Shell (glyphed) on last Shock Pulse to quickly heal yourself and run back to the boss. (Only works if you don't use Anti-Magic Zone)

 

Kor'kron Dark Shaman (HC):

-You can use Anti-Magic Zone to further reduce the damage taken from Falling Ash.

 

Malkorok (HC) 10-man:

- Soak the puddles with AMS up for instant full runic power, use Anti-Magic Shell glyph.

 

Thok (HC):

- Help out the tank on the 5th stack of the Frost breath with Anti-Magic Zone to reduce the damage taken from the breath right before freezing.

- If you're tanking you can compleetly soak a Poison/Fire/Frost breath with Anti-Magic Shell (Must be using the anti-magic shell glyph) you'll be able to cheese a stack of the tank debuff and sometimes even resetting the stacks if timed perfectly.

- When the tank gets frozen use Howling Blast/Death Coil to get him out faster.

 

Siegecrafter HC:

-Use AMZ during the empowered magnet phase to reduce dmg taken, preferably ontop of the tanks/melee to help out the healers.

-Use AMZ to reduce the damage taken from the shockpulse from the Shredder.

 

Klaxxi HC:

- Aim can be soaked compleetly with Purgatory, make sure to have a pet sac and healthstone ready to heal you back up.

-AMZ is extreemly usefull to help reduce damage taken by the fiery edge debuff.

-Anti Magic Shell will absorb a whole fiery edge debuff if you shift presence to blood together with Shifting presence glyph and anti magic shell glyph.

 

 

Garrosh Normal:

-The Whirling Corruption can be compleetly soaked with AMS if you're using the glyph and shit pressence.

      Anyone already done the math on this?  Does it make it more beneficial to have Let It Go x3 (Frost, Arcane, Frost) and sacrifice iLVL on the artifact weapon or to have 3 other (not as effective) relics but with a higher iLVL. 
      Example:
      Let It Go (865, 885, 850)
      Other Relics (Ice Age 895, Obsidian Lance 895, Ice Age 900)

      A little bit of info about us:
      We are a group of friends and serious raiders on EU Twisting Nether looking to recruit skilled like-minded players into our roster for Mythic Legion raids and onwards.

      Our loot system for Mythic is RC Loot Council.
      What we expect from you:
      - We are a raiding guild with only a 9 hour per week schedule so you are expected to attend and be ON TIME! However we understand things can come up sometimes but please let us know.
      - Be able to speak and understand the English language and not be afraid to communicate with other members during raids.
      - Actively doing dungeons/world quests to improve your gear and artifact weapon.
      - Have a strong understanding of the current raid tier and be able to play your class to it's potential.
      - Always come to raids prepared(i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
      - Have a computer that can handle 20 man raiding and a good, stable internet connection.

      Hello,
      First of all, sorry for my english. :)
      I know there are tons of the same topics, but they didn’t help me much.
      I want start to play Legion and i can’t decide which one DK or Druid. My main is usualy tank but, I want to play also like decent dps. I think UDK/BD both are on same lvl ?
      I like both GD and BDK, I don’t know how they stand right now I know GD got some nerf and BDK buff.
      But in general is still GB best tank and what about BDK is he decent or crappy.
      Also there is one big question – 7.3 I read about GD T21 and have very bad set bonus.
      What do you think about DK bonuses. When bone shield is consumed the cooldown of DRW is reduced by 3s, 4p When DRW fades, rune regeneration is increased by 15% for 10 sec. I know it’s just PTR but still.
      I will be glad for every opinion.
      Thanks

      Hello DKs. (I dunno why it does this annoying thing with the background)
      I have been playing around with different WeakAuras for a few weeks now and i finally found something that works really well for me personally in PvP.
      Both BGs and arena.

      I have a small screen to work with, so i would try to fit as much info in as i could, on as little space as possible, without having any info there that i didnt need.

      I also found out... With all the pressure and fast thinking happening in pvp, you dont have time to look all over your screen to see important CDs or hp points or whatever.
      So again, i've found a way to track everything i need to know, without moving my eyes to the edges of the screen.

      I am by no means any expert on WA and my designs are pretty basic, for some they might look abit cluttered, but everything that i link here, is quite easy to change.
      Deletes single groups u dont want, or change colours/sounds anyway u like it.

      I really hope you people enjoy what i have made and i hope some of you can use it for yourself.
      It's the first time i ever do post stuff like this... Now, i'll explain what the different auras do:
      ---------------------------------

      https://pastebin.com/h0sVPDgC
      Asphyxiate stun:
      Pretty basic. It will show a stun icon, with a small timer underneath.
      If you dont like the timer, u can delete the group and u can even change the texture to a progress texture, then the bar would deplete as the stun timer went on.
      I do prefer the timer underneath cause of diminishing returns, it often doesnt stun the full 5 sec.

      https://pastebin.com/ZqX24uCV
      CC and Disruption cooldowns:
      Mind freeze (interrupt) and Death grip on the same height
      Asphyxiate and Gnaw (ghoul stun) on the same height.
      These icon will only if the given ability is on cooldown. It will not if it is ready
      Often times there are so many icons on your screen counting down, so i made this to quickly find out what CC is ready.

      https://pastebin.com/Z1tQtqXY
      Apocalypse - Dark Transformation - Soul Reaper cooldowns:
      I put these in the same group, cause they are what i use basically everytime they are of CD (if im in range of my target ofc)
      They contribute to the very important sustained damage of unholy and it was important for me to track them close to each other.
      They will both bounce in and yellow text will appear when an ability is ready - Something i made so i never miss or forget one of these as i am focusing my target.

      https://pastebin.com/kvehS4qi
      Festering wound tracker:
      Obviously one of the most important things to keep track of for unholy.
      I've tried with different icons and progress bars, but fact is that, even though they look prettier and more neath, they aren't as practical.
      So i made a simple, yet very effective tracker for it.

      A flashing purple wheel appears if you are in combat and no wound is active on your target.
      It bounces and turns red if there are 1-2 stack active, cause this is where you should apply more debuff before detonating.
      Standard purple colour will appear with 3-5 stacks, cause with this amount you are free to detonate your wounds and not having to reapply new ones or worring about there being to many. (Because you are obvioulsy free to Festering strike if you are at like 3 stacks)
      It will flash purple/white when there are 6-8 stacks, cause here you need to detanote and not reapply anymore festering strikes, atleast until it reaches below six.

      https://pastebin.com/deeYe8T2
      Offensive burst/go for kill/swap target cooldowns:
      I didnt put "Blighted rune weapon" in with the other sustain damage CDs because i feel even though it is good for sustained damage, it does not need to be used of cd.
      It works very well if you want to surprise swap to a different targets.
      There are stacks for BRW and timer for your gargoyle - Again, a very simple but very effective design, that tells you everything you need to know. These will also disappear when they are ready.

      https://pastebin.com/6NsWPd0R
      Scourge of worlds proc:
      Very, very important debuff to track. Changes your priority alot of times in your rotation for the next 5-6 secs.
      Even though it could work with the normal icon and the design is cool, it is again. Not practical for pvp, cause u need ONLY to see useful info.
      So i made it very simple with a standard timer, so u never miss the debuff and it doesnt clutter your screen.

      https://pastebin.com/BUkZmUMp
      Sudden doom proc:
      These can ofcourse be changed to any texture you might like better.
      1 bar appears with 1 proc - 2 bars appears with 2 procs.
      Again for practical use - Minimize the amount of numbers and bars on your screen with this.

      https://pastebin.com/WBTRpnEZ
      Virulent plague:
      I sometimes forget to reapply this in stressed situations. I made this aura to make sure it never happens.
      A white flashing icon shows when it is not active, a simple sound plays when it runs out and a white bar shows the progress.

      Really hope you guys enjoy it and will give me some feedback!
      I love playing around with WeakAuras and just as i have had alot of help from others designs i really hope someone can use mine.
