Calling all 14/14 boomkins

4 posts in this topic

So I have contributed to most of the fights throughout SoO as a boomkin. I feel strong on almost every fight (besides galakras, can't seem to get a solid strat down) and am the lowest geared person in my comp.

 

Here is my armory link http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/arthas/Bobkin/simple

I still have some reforging to do to when I get home that will gain me like 2% crit, but for the most part that is it.

 

So boomkins, help me lol. I am not pulling decent numbers at all on Garrosh. My group is 13/14 and tried like 20 pulls on Garrosh last night. I am the switcher who has to switch to the weapons and am also in charge of knocking the adds back into the fire. With the position my tank puts the adds in, I run have to run out of the group to do it and then sprint back so the weapon gets placed where we need it. I wish I ran logs last night but I forgot to. My burst is fine, but by the time we wipe i'll be sitting around 140k when I can usually sustain over 200k. I don't multi dot the adds because I dont want to waste the Natures Grace uptime and because our group just kills them so fast (blade storm, hunter, destro lock, and mage). So by the time I can switch to the adds, it is not worth the GCD's to dot them becaue they will die to fast.

 

If any boomkins out there have done downed Garrosh, please help. I don't want to bring my group down on this fight.

Some logs would help. I would personally use the jc gems on crit over the intellect and use HotW talent over Dream although I dont know if that would be a massive difference in dps. Im sure someone that is better than myself will post soon though.

As a stand point to Renee about us boomkin sour aoe is garbage compared to other classes. That being said this is mostly a single target fight for us. Your priority is the weapon wolf rider and garrosh, don't worry about the other adds only thing to do to them is typhoon when iron star rolls past! I felt discouraged looking at damage meters at a whole but looking at logs I was either top or second on damage done to garrosh him self, don't get discouraged at over all meters on a lot of the SoO fights there's a lot of to much aoe fight when. Under 3 adds we are strong asset to group whe. Fights like this come along you need to know your role your great to help the whole raid other than just damage and real raid leader would know this and not be up set I think te first 3 full clear I was switching talents and trinkets each fight almost. But I've been sticking with INC/DOC most fights. I do te recording for my 10 man raid grp and I had to reinstall Bandi cam before out first garrosh kill so I didn't get to record it due to forgetting to change the start stop key bind -_- but I have mostly all other fights on my channel

Here is the log report from our first Garrosh kill. There was like 11 total attempts, actually more but I forgot to run logs for the first like 1 or 2 hours. We ended up killing it with like one person alive. We had 3 melee so they tunnel adds and Garrosh, I basically was on weapon/garrosh duty. I wasn't last on damage to Garrosh but I caught myself doing a couple things wrong during the fight so I knew it wouldn't be great. I am still learning boomkin tbh. I have only been raiding on my boomy for about 3 weeks in a progression fashion. I played him for fun back in cata and last tier but never got serious enough with him. So I am still learning a lot about it. Also just got my meta for this raid night so I did see a big difference from before. I still am rolling with INC/HoTW. I would like to use DOC but I just keep messing it up more than anything because I get trigger happy with my SS procs. Practice makes perfect I guess though. 

 

Also, how and when do I use FoN? I know that since I have my meta and amp trinket, that they are good for single target fights. I just don't know when to use them appropriately. AND....is the solar opener my go to thing now that I have meta? Or should I still stick with a lunar opener? 

 

Thanks for the help guys.

      So, I was just wondering out of curiosity if there was a way to change the weakauras trackers for sunfire and moonfire to be based on an absolute value of the maximum time sun/moonfire lasts for rather than being based on a percentage of how long the DoT has been active on the target. Basically, doing it the normal way, if you have Nature's Balance (which you should) then using solar wrath or lunar strike will extend the duration of sunfire/moonfire, respectively. However, basically all this does to the tracker is make it decrease slightly slower each time. For the sake of convenience I'm just going to refer to it as a bar because that's what I use. I want it so that when the DoT is at its maximum possible duration, the bar is completely full, and then decrease from there. That way, it's less confusing.

      All applications will be reviewed and considered however if you are playing a class/spec combination we need then your chances of joining will be higher.
      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. We will offer a sociable and fun raiding environment while maintaining a strong desire for progression. Our Discord is very active and we encourage all members to chat and play together not only for raids. The guild formed late March 2016 and fully cleared 13/13 Mythic Hellfire Citadel pre nerf shortly after. We've since been improving our world ranking every tier.
      We currently raid 3 days per week on Mythic: Wednesday, Sunday and Tuesday 19:15-22:15 server time. While it is not a lot we try to make the most out of our time. We run optional heroic/normal/alt/previous tier raids during off days in which raiders are welcome to come to. Our members also play other games outside raid times together where anyone is welcome to join(LoL, Dota, HotS, Overwatch etc.).
      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.
      - Exorsus Raid Tools, Weakauras2 and RC Loot Council addons installed. We may ask you to install others.
