BrM Heroic SoO Help

8 posts in this topic

Hello all! My name is Brewmaster Karrotkake, and I need your help! 

My character can be found here

 

 

So my guild has been progressing slowly through Heroic SoO for the past 2-3 months, with me tanking alongside a blood DK. Over the course of this time I have tried many different builds, for the most part Mastery/Stamina.

 

I have recently made the decision to switch to Crit/Haste, based on the recommendation of some guides, websites etc, as well as some other monks on the server. One problem I am having however, is the amount of haste I should be using in order to get the most out of my character. I have seen the term "stack haste until comfortable" used a great deal, but where would be a good starting point? looking through different websites and guides I've seen haste from as low as 4500, to as high as 10-11k!.

 

So I ask you, good people of icy-veins, how do YOU build your Brewmaster monks? As for AskMrRobot, what stat weights do you personally use in order to push as much out of your character as possible? 

 

Any suggestions or tips would be greatly appreciated, and I thank you in advance for any help you may provide.

Hi There  ,

 

I use the Mr Robot crit build(link to my main monk in signature) and then i set the stamina weights to low. Stamina is completely useless for a BrM and gives us no benefit whatsoever.

 

As for the haste its is a comfort/practice thing. I know i can maintain a rotation and shuffle with 4500 haste. But i also know that im going to be tanking H Garrosh so i will probably need to be purifying more so will benefit from a little more haste.

 

IMO anything more than probably 6500 haste is too much for a BrM.

 

As for tips, if you could ling some warcraftlogs of you in action we can have a look and give some feedback.

 

Happy Killing :)

Hey Brewmonksta, thanks for the advice concerning haste, I've set the stamina weights low as you suggested, and have decided to go for roughly 5500, as it would allow for the extra purifying on certain fights. I've been meaning to set up WarcraftLogs for a while now, and I believe this gives me some reason for doing so. I shall set it up and start recording logs for this weeks raids, to see what areas I can improve in.

 

On another note, looking at your linked character, I can see that you are dual-wielding rather than using a 2h. Is this something I should also be looking into? I have access to any 1h agility weapon that drops at the moment, as my old main was the only rogue in the guild. 

 

Thanks again in advance!

The 1 Handers provide "more" dps due to the extra dancing steel enchant, more melee swings giving the potential to proc rppm trinkets more/faster.

 

Its not a Huge differerence but given equal ilvl and stat budgets for 1H vs 2H you would go for the 1 Handers. ie i wouldnt go down in ilvl just to get an extra enchant.

Oh, so I should hold on to my staff untill I get 2 one handers of a higher ilevel?

No - ill attempt to clarify.

 

Same ilvl and same/similar stats go for 1Handers.

 

DO NOT go down in ilvl just to use 1Handers.

 

Always take into account the stats that are o n the weapons and go for the weapons that give you the best overall increase to your stats/attackpower etc.

 

Example

The Immerseus staff has expertise and crit. Both stats are great for a BrM.

 

The Protectors fist weapons are hit Crit. Hit is good depending on the other gear you have to help reach caps. Crit is  desirable as BrM.

 

However the Iron Jugg Maces, paragons axes have more desirble BrM stats so in that situation i would go for 2 normal 1H of these instead of the normal staff from immerseus.

 

Given the choice between these I would therefore not switch from a normal immerseus staff to the fist weapons unless the fist weapons were of heroic/heroic wf quality.

The protectors fist weapons are hit crit, which is very desirable as long as you don't have too much hit elsewhere.

Good afternoon!

 

As already mentioned, I've personally found that if you favour going Crit, then 2x1h's works out a lot better in terms of stacking your elusive brew procs efficiently.

 

I personally switched to 2h when we hit heroics as I switched to a balance between mastery & crit. Haste I've never really ever forged for as you only really need as much so that your stagger will not fall off.

      Hi everyone,

      We are a guild that transferred from Alexstrasza to join the progression raiding scene as that server is very low population now. We are currently 8/8N and 4/8H uldir, and looking to move into heroics soon and mythic just after. 

      We do more than just raid, we love to do keys, transmog runs, and even some PvP. We have a large range of players from several walks of life and have a unique and fun atmosphere, we are friendly and love helping people. 

      We are looking for a few more members for our Sunday/Monday 5-8pm PST, and our tue/third 5-8pm PST. If anyone is interested in raid leading that will work too.

      We are primarily east coast based but have a plethora of players that are on at all times of day.

      Main needs for our raid team:
      ranged dps
      Healers
      Exceptional players

      Of course all players as welcome as we do other guild activities such as world PVP, keys, xmog and other social activities.

      So come join this very active guild and we hope to hear from you.

      If you would like more information please add my btag at Kaatra#5865.

      I look forward to hearing from all of you.

      Tank ABOUT US
      Now recruiting for BfA!
      Currently looking for a skilled and laid back Tank for the upcoming expansion.
      We're semi-casual in terms of the time we spend raiding, but are serious about progression, attendance, and performance.
      Booty Pirates is a close-knit late night guild that hangs out in Discord frequently. We enjoy joking around, playing alts, doing Mythic+, playing other games, or just hanging out. 
      Fun guild events are scheduled often!
      Overall, we're very social with guild members that actually talk to each other.
      (18+ required, we talk like pirates!)
      GOALS FOR BfA
      In Battle for Azeroth we plan to push Mythic more than we did previously in Legion, and not spend nearly as much time on Heroic. 
      This means we will jump into Mythic/Heroic weekends as soon as the majority of the Heroic gear is done. (Mythic Friday and Heroic Sunday, for example, until we phase Heroic out completely.) 
      SCHEDULE UNTIL ULDIR*
      Below are our events the beginning weeks of BfA! All events start at 10pm CT.
      Week 1
      August 13th (Mon) - BfA Weekday Leveling Party! August 17th (Fri) - Leveling up in BfA Drinking Party August 19th (Sun) - Leveling up in BfA Non-Drinking Party Week 2
      August 24th & 26th (Fri/Sun) - Mandatory Mythic 0 to prep for Tier 1 *Schedule subject to changes.
      JOINING THE BOOTY PIRATES CREW

      <Maniacal Degree> is looking to boost its raid forces (Mythic and Heroic) for the upcoming expansion. We are looking for talented players that can contribute to the success of raid teams of multiple skill levels - particularly those interested in Horde Mythic progression.
      Mythic progression raid team: Tue/Wed/Thurs 6:30-9:00 PM server (Pacific Standard Time)
      Heroic progression raid team: Sun/Mon 6:30-9:00 PM server (Pacific Standard Time)
      MD is a mature, inclusive Horde guild on the Proudmoore-US server, with both social and raiding components to meet all your guild needs! We are always looking for active adult players that want to enjoy a community guild based on the ideal of all-inclusiveness. No matter where you come from and what your opinions are, we hope you find a safe place in game through Maniacal Degree. We have a few rules that we ask guild members follow in order to succeed in the community environment, but other than that, we want you to come in, have fun, and act maniacal!
      We are always looking for skilled players that want to get into raiding at a competent level. Our leadership has set expectations to clear mythic-level content for our more hardcore players as Battle for Azeroth releases, while also cultivating raid teams in a more relaxed environment. 
      What we are looking for specifically in a raid member that is interested in progression:
      •    Players who have raided at a competitive level in current and previous expansions;
      •    Players that are new to raiding but are willing to work hard inside and outside of raid times to “catch up”;
      •    Players with experience should have logs to prove that they have raided previously and can perform in their roles well;
      •    People who would like to get back into raiding, but may not have relevant Legion experience to get into a current raiding guild;
      •    Players that know how to optimize their characters for raiding (stats, upgrades, raid roles, encounter research, consumables, etc.);
      •    Players that can perform multiple roles within the specializations of their character, as needed by raid demands and leadership requests;
      •    Players that are self-starters and can take an active approach in helping raid and guild leadership as needed.
      What we are looking for specifically in a guild member:
      •    Players who are active outside of raid times;
      •    Players who engage with raiding and non-raiding guildmates alike;
      •    Players who understand that Proudmoore-US is the game’s most diverse and inclusive server. The LGBTQ+ community is very active and established here, and guild members must respect and embrace the reputation and environment we cultivate both on the server and within the guild.
      Send me a message (Spaceghoul on Proudmoore-US, IsaacTx#1736) if you are interested in talking about joining our guild and/or our raid teams! Come browse our Discord as well: https://discord.gg/Eps7b2g
