Solo Shriekwing Through 2-Hour Berserk

Recommended Posts


Rextroy is back after a long hiatus with possibly the most painful solo he's done so far. He soloed Shriekwing after 2 hours of Berserk.


Shriekwing has been on my "potential" todo list for a while, but I only committed to doing this after the 9.0.5 buff to Fodder to the Flame (DH Necrolord) since it now gives you a lot of potential ranged healing.

Why would we need ranged healing? well because the way to solo this boss is through a horrifying kite, lasting hours.

The main ability of Shriekwing, Exsanguinating Bite Exsanguinating Bite, surprisingly has a 20 yards range. Which means it can be avoided. And the Berserk Berserk, will only increase physical damage, not magic damage or movement speed.

Shriekwing got some ranged magic damage (wave of blood) but it won't do much without the benefit of berserk. The blood that spawns on the ground will also disappear after a certain period. By kiting correctly, we can avoid all physical damage taken except the Descend that happens after Echolocation is cast on you. This ability hurts quite a bit, thats the reason we need moderately good healing at range, to survive.

List of important talents, conduits and soulbinds

  • Abyssal Strike (lower CD on Infernal Strike)
  • Infernal Armor (Immolation Aura reduces dmg taken against physical, VS Descend)
  • Soul Barrier (Demonic could work too if timed well, but I prefer Soul Barrier for this)
  • Last Resort (Important second chance talent)

Felfire Haste (Infernal Strike movement speed boost conduit).

Plague Deviser Merileth gives us 2 important soulbinds, Ooz's Frictionless Coating and Ultimate form, both which help our survival. I got some movement speed items to help (I wish I had even more speed stat however)

Originally I had one survival trinket, Sanguine Vintage Sanguine Vintage, but decided to go with double DPS trinkets instead. It made it more dangerous for me and harder to survive, but better for my sanity since equipping 2 DPS trinkets would lower the solo timer from 3.5 hours to 2.5 hours. The DPS trinkets I ended up going with was Dreadfire Vessel Dreadfire Vessel and Skulker's Wing Skulker's Wing (I wanted to try Gluttonous Spike but didn't manage to obtain it).

It is during his Earsplitting Shriek that you have a small window of opportunity to use both Fleshcraft and Skulker's Wing. The cooldown of Earsplitting is 45 seconds, which makes it line up great with skulker.

I also used Bandages, Shadowcore Oil, Healing pots and the legendary I ultimately went with was Spirit of the Darkness Flame (for more healing).

The hardest part of the encounter is the constant focus required, you also need to be mindful of the boss pathing. You need to make sure you move so he won't cut you off. Even with Infernal Strike you might not be able to outrange the bite if you use it wrongly. I had a few wipes because I landed just within 20 yards range so his bite would successfully hit me. I also wiped because the boss can decide to melee hit you before casting the bite (if your Infernal Strike makes you fly in front of the boss he might hit you) This was made even worse when I used double DPS trinkets, since any additional dmg taken would be harder to recover.

Here's a short video of the Shriekwing solo.

      We have some extremely fast Castle Nathria Mythic clears coming out of the Raid Masters speedrun tournament that's being held over the weekend, with the current fastest clear coming in at only 1 hour and 15 minutes!
      The event's finals are coming up today at 20:00 CEST, but the World record was set back during the qualifiers, as xD just burned through and took down all the bosses:

      There may be more records coming our way today as Pieces, xD, Sloth, SPEL, endeavør, Pescorus, Pepelands, Intrepid Fox Imminent and FlashPoint KTB compete for the $10,000 prize pool! Not all the top guild participated in the event, as most notably Complexity-Limit and Echo were a little too busy with the Race to World First preparations, as the big Sanctum of Domination progress race is coming on July 14th!
      And here's the tournament's trailer to see us out:

      Carbot has been a very reliable source of some truly very funny videos on pretty much everything Blizzard-related, with his unique style and a clear reverence and knowledge of the content parodied. He even made Blizzard a 30th anniversary video for this year's BlizzConline!

      Well, today we have a very different video on our hands, as he tries to show the evolution of WoW throughout the ages, at least from his perspective. It's... a painful one to watch, and in my opinion a little too pessimistic, but you can't deny the talent at play here as it will almost certainly tug at your heartstrings:
      While there definitely have been many changes to WoW over the years, and even the ones depicted towards the end of the video aren't that far from the truth, the nostalgic and pretty emotional feelings I get from the video are more about the players leaving, which I would argue is more a factor of, well, time. As old-school, original players (or ones from any period in the game really) change, grow and evolve, it's natural they will move away from the game and come back for shorter stints and so on, which isn't necessarily a factor of the game's state, and so I can't really agree with the ending section there (although I'm not exactly a fan of what's been happening with the monetization aspects either). The fanbase definitely isn't exactly at its most fan-like at the moment, but hopefully that can change, and we can stem the tide of toxicity that's been pretty heavily pushing in on WoW on all fronts.
      As for Carbot's video specifically, while I may not agree with the general message, this departure from his normal videos really is a great one, and you have to respect when funny, cartoony figures can pack such a major emotional punch, as regardless of how you may feel about WoW, you will most likely have felt something watching that video.
      The video also created a very large redit thread, with players expressing their reaction to it, which you can check out here.

      3 encrypted Patch 9.1 cinematics are currently present in the game files. These usually contain spoilers, so we will need to wait until June 29 to watch them.
      All combined, the cinematics have 7.46 minutes.
      interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_950and952_1920.avi is 2 minutes and 25 seconds long and has 69.09 MB. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_951_1920.avi is 3 minutes and 7 seconds long and has 88.32 MBs. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_953_1920.avi has 1 minute and 56 seconds and 54.67 MBs. There are also lower-resolution versions of the same cinematics present in the game files (1080p / 640p). What do you hope to see there?
