16 Prot Paladins Vs. Jaina Normal

Recommended Posts

RxUB4XB.jpg
 

Jaina hasn't even been a boss for more than a week yet and the shenanigans kills have already started! Rextroy and as many Protection Paladins as he could find have ventured into Dazar'alor and of the 30 that started the trek, only 16 remained in the end to face down lady Proudmoore. With an average ilevel of 385, they actually took a fair amount of time (15-ish wipes) to take her down/force her to bail.

This fight was a real pain, especially the last phase. Probably took us about 15 wipes or more. We started off as 30 protection paladins, but people left and we ended up with a solid group of 16 people. The more paladins you have, the more your healing will be. But it is also harder to coordinate everyone. We also had an average of 385 ilvl. Fun thing is, this boss doesn't appear to have any real "berserk" or atleast it is a really long timer. We had some attempts that were 22 minutes long.

Tactics: Phase 1 (0:00) This phase is really chill when you get the hang of it. Make sure you use your ballista to quickly get rid of the Kul'tiran boats. And drop your chilling stacks by walking into fire. Also don't forget to throw the bombardments overboard. The NPCs that spawn here isnt an issue for a full tank group, so we pretty much ignored them.

Phase 2 (4:08) At 60% health, you get into phase 2. Make sure you avoid all the frozen orb or you get stunned. And rush to find Jaina. You have to move out of your raid group and drop the arcane bombardments on the munition so the ice shatters. This causes you to be able to kill them for your group. Make sure you stay in the fire that spawns as long as possible to delay the time until you get frozen solid. Also make sure you avoid Glacial Ray at all cost, it truely hurts!

Phase 3 (8:05) At 30% health, you get into phase 3. Save your CDs and hero for this phase, you need to burn down the wall and free Nathanos quickly before the ice reaches you. The water elemental aint too bad, just make sure you avoid standing near allies if you get the Heart of Frost debuff!

Phase 4 (9:25) The last phase is definitely the hardest. You got no good way to get rid of the chilling debuff here, aswell as her images will keep spawning fairly often. Our strat here was to make sure we had Divine Shield ready as a panic button for ourselves, aswell as Spellwarding to delay the application of the Ice Block. Our prio target was Ice Block - Image - Jaina. We stacked up to maximize cleave damage. The most dangerous time was when both Jaina and her prismatic images would use Glacial Ray at the same time and at the location we had a bunch of people stacked up frozen. This would lead to a wipe a fair amount of times.

Stacking up also let us easily free eachother by cleave, but as stated it did have some risks of a lot of people being slain by AOE effects. You could also have a strat of splitting up more and leting the Ice Block duration fall off (and keep the ones inside Ice Block healed up).

It was overall a really interesting boss and really pleasant that it didn't have any hard enrage timer. Might not been possible if that was the case!

Probably the engineering gizmo added in 8.1. I think they used to have it in earlier expansions as well, but was absent recently.

      N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth is a new item discovered on 8.3 PTR which transforms you into a Servant of N'Zoth and lets you kill members of your own faction in Kul Tiras and Zandalar if you're into PvP and have War Mode on.
      To receive N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth, you must first turn on War Mode and defeat 10 members of the opposing faction without dying. The subsequent quest provides you with N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth and the goal is to slay 10 members of your own faction without dying to receive the Servant of N'Zoth achievement which comes with the Servant of N'Zoth title and the quest also rewards the N'lyeth, Sliver of N'Zoth toy. Other rewards are currently unknown.

      We've encountered the Talon's Vengeance faction in Legion and used Ivory Feather to collect Marks of Prey and on the Timeless Isle we used Censer of Eternal Agony to collect Bloody Coins from players back in Mists of Pandaria, so the concept isn't exactly new.

      It will be easier to acquire Nazjatar Essences in Patch 8.3 on alts. Blizzard added new Bind to Account reputation tokens which increase your rep gain with the Nazjatar factions by 250 up to Exalted.
      Mechagon already comes with a reputation-increasing item in the form of Rustbolt Resistance Insignia and instead of making Essences account-wide, Blizzard decided to implement new reputation tokens purchasable from the Nazjatar faction quartermasters. They cost 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increase your reputation with the factions by 250 each. You can buy them if you're main has reached Revered with the respective Nazjatar reputation.
      Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Speaker Utia for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with Waveblade Ankoan by 250 up to Exalted. Waveswept Abyssal Conch can be purchased from Atolia Seapearl for 20 Prismatic Manapearls and increases your reputation with the Unshackled by 250 up to Exalted. Additionally, Blizzard reduced reputation requirements from 8.2 vendor-sold Essences and you can find more details here.

      Finally Deathwing's size is getting the appropriate number of pixels to represent him as he was meant to be! We have two new AI upscaled videos to share today, starting with the into to Cataclysm, aka the Deathwing blows everything up show. There's also the ill-fated Starcraft: Ghost 3rd person shooter that was cancelled, but not before we got a pretty solid cinematic out of it, featuring the Overming, a whole lot of marines and zerg and, ofc course, Nova.

      Black Dragonscale Backpack is a cosmetic item sold by Wrathion in Patch 8.3. The cloak is actually a Wrathion-themed backpack that can be used for transmog.
      The backpack is very similar to the Vulpera Heritage Rucksack, used in the Vulpera Heritage Armor in Visions of N'Zoth.

      When you unlock Horrific Visions in the upcoming content update, you can talk to Wrathion who sells various items for Coalesced Visions and Corrupted Mementos including:
      Vessel of Horrific Visions for 10,000 Coalesced Visions; Gouged Eye of N'Zoth for 25,000 Corrupted Mementos; Black Dragonscale Backpack (new) for 40,000 Corrupted Mementos; Wicked Swarmer for 100,000 Corrupted Mementos. Related 8.3 Build 32805 News

      Veteran of the Fourth War is a new spell intended for the second generation of Death Knights created in Patch 8.3. The flavor spell is in place to reflect the end of the Battle for Azeroth War Campaign in front of the Gates of Orgrimmar ([error]). It works exactly as Veteran of the Third War for existing Death Knights.
      Players who pre-ordered Shadowlands will be able to create Allied Race and Pandaren Death Knights in Visions of N'Zoth. There will be a new intro with Bolvar and Blizzard has updated their eye glow multiple times on 8.3 PTR to bring it more in line with the Lich King's eyes.
