Hello.
Do any of my fellow warlock-players have any tips on how to kill Nibbleh in Brawl'gar arena (rank4, boss 2)?

It was difficult for me but after a while i just brute-forced through it by just using Dserv, RoF as much as I could and hoped immolate and a couple of dark soul windows could kill it (use AD to have a couple windows where you can do this if you can kite for enough). I eventually killed it after hitting a soft enrage where i kited the entire room and I let him gain a few stacks to find the few spaces I didn't fill.

 

It was pretty apparent how bad the spec is on fights where you have to constantly move. Doomguard was my highest damage source by a wide margin and it took me a couple times compared to every other fight that was just trivial.

I ran Affli for Nibbleh, popping cooldowns with SB:Haunt and just running/channeling one tick of Drain Soul. Now I'm up to Meatball which is a complete brick wall for me. Can't kite him and he eventually two shots me, got no idea how to beat him.

i failed several times on Meatball because i didn't understand the fight properly. Basically, the purple domes heal you and they pop out when you deal damage to him. Just don't panic while you're getting hit for 30-50k because you have time to be healed by the purple. Eventually, once you hit 50 stacks, pop DS & Dark Bargain and chaos bolt him to death. Make collecting orbs the number 1 priority and don't worry about your rotation, just be active so they keep spawning.

 

For Nibbleh I ran to the back-right corner and dropped a demonic gateway to the back-left corner. Don't bother inching along; you can stand in the corner waiting and blow him up before sprinting to the next spot. It gets trickier when he drops the pools. I had done enough damage in the early stages to finish him off about the time he had done a full lap. I ended up doing something like 67% of the damage and pets did the rest

For Nibbleh, I was Destro ilvl 633 with Grimoire of Service and Kil'Jaeden's Cunning talents.. I also used Cataclysm.

 

Use the basic clockwise kiting strat.

 

Run to your starting corner and cast Rain of Fire on his spawn point while you run there. As soon as you get to your corner cast Cataclysm on his spawn location. It will land just half a second after he spawns. Now blow all dps cooldowns. Trinket, racial, brawler's INT potion, GoServ, Terroguard and Drums of Fury if you have em.. Hit him with 1 Conflagerate, 1 Incenerate, 1 Chaos bolt and then more Incenerates. Try to get an immolate off just as he reaches you.

 

As soon as he gets to you, Run for corner #2! Cast Conflagerate, Rain of Fire and 2nd Conflag if it is up as you're moving. Once you're in the corner burst him with more incenerates. When he reaches you pop Kil'Jaeden's Cunning and blast away at him with Incenerate and re-up Immolate as you run to Corner #3.

 

Once you are stopped at Corner 3, keep blasting him with incenerate and re-up immolate when needed. When he gets to you run to the next corner while casting Conflag and Rain of Fire in his path as you move.

 

From Corner 4 it is just rinse and repeat except scarier. Keep immolate up and spam incenerate, The fight gets a whole lot messier at this point with poison pools but he should be getting near Shadowburn by the time you get back to your starting corner.  Just keep up immolate and cast conflag/RoF for when you're moving. When Shadowburn does finally come up, don't blow them all immediately. 4 shadowburns aren't enough to kill him so you're better off using them strategically. Keep following the rules of casts only when stationary and instant casts only when moving. Kil'Jaeden's Cunning will come off cooldown will likely come off cooldown some time after Shadowburn becomes available but before he dies keep that in mind if you feel cornered and don't have any instant cast abilities ready.

 

tips:

- Keep your turns TIGHT. Don't let him make circles. You want that poison path to make 90 degree turns. Don't worry if he hits you he's a chump and you got a healthstone. Keep his lines close too. There should be only a small strip of ground between lines of poison.

- Terrorguard is important! I wouldn't even attempt it with him on cooldown. I think he ended up doing just under 300k damage.

- You may still end up having to do a few attempts because poison spawns can really screw up positioning.

 

On my kill, I actually had a ton of room left so I think even with less gear or less optimal poison pool placements if you stick to casting when stationary and instants while moving and really stacking all your cooldowns upfront when things are calmer you should be just as successful.

 

Any questions?

 

 

For Meatball, The orbs heal you. You want to Rain of Fire which will make him spawn tons of orbs. Keep circling him picking up orbs while he stands in rain of fire. Don't worry about dpsing him until you have as many orbs as you want. Once you have a ton of orbs blow your cooldowns and blast a few times then use Shadowfury to stun him and blow him up some more. He'll probably die before he gets out of stun. Orb buff only lasts 10 seconds so don't let it wear off while you burt him down.  It might take a few tries because he can get lucky and hit you while enraged even when you're doing the fight right. Just just to get a little distance on him and he should go down easy.

If you're an engineer all the fights are trivial once you've unlocked the nuke. I got stuck on meatball until I got fed up and just bombed him. Grabbed about 25 orbs at the start and then cast the Nukular and made sure he stayed in the blast. Killed in a single shot. If you're not an engineer then timing dark bargain when you start your burn is the way to go.

Died 4-5 times before I finally got this as 626  destruction. Flask up and eat. This macro saved me a lot of messing around at the start:
 

/use 14
/cast dark soul
/use Brawler's Draenic Intellect Potion
/tar Nibbleh
/cast summon terrorguard

Rain of fire and cata on his spawn point, pop macro, nuke like crazy. Rain of fire on your feet as you run to the next stopping position. Dropped him easily in the end.

I just ran to the middle, had my void taunting him, then made my void walk from corner to corner while i kept dpsing. (Destro spec)

 

I do have some trouble now with Meatball... got closest to killing him as Affliction so far, cause in destro I do not seem to cast enough and he goes raging on me everytime.

      *Affliction Lock - Orc, ilevel 885, 38 artifact traits*
      1600-1700 2's rating: with a Resto Shaman
      1800+ 3's rating: with a Resto Shaman/DH
      Pets: Fel Hunter (Permanent) then: Inferno stun / Fel hunter
       
      My question is how do you play with your lock in 2's vs 3's strategy?
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (1). Do you just outlast and wait for dampening? spread pressure, UA+Drain when you can, and try and outlast with:
       
      Talents: Writhe / Absolute / Howl / Siphon / Demon / Service / Phantom ?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      (2). OR do you try to set up burst windows? with some what spread pressure    (its hard to get dots on both healer/dps) but CC chain the healer and burst with UA + Drain on the DPS for a kill window? with:
       
      Talents: MG / Absolute / Howl / Siphone / Demon / Service / Phantom?
       
      Honor Talents: Relentless / Mind Quickness / Tongues or Weakness / Nether / Deaths Embrace / Amplify ?
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      For 3's I do the (1) for the spread pressure since its hard for the healer to maintain, but for 2's I keep trying (1) and (2), I just cant seem to find the right way to climb in 2's
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
      Any advice on talents/honor talents or play style for Affliction in 2's or 3's? or anything you try with your healers? I'm open for suggestions and talent changes
       
      thank you.

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 1/10M NH, 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo

      Introdution:
      <Turkeyism> is a (7/7M EN) (2/3M ToV) (3/10M NH) weekend raiding guild on Stormrage US. Our guild was originally formed in early 2013 as a 10man Heroic raid team with the goal to have fun and get as far as possible. After having defeated Heroic Garrosh in Siege of Ogrimmar and ending the Mists of Pandaria expansion ranked 19th on Stormrage, our team decided to push forward into Warlords of Draenor. With the introduction of Mythic in 6.0, our team set out to expand our roster, overcome new challenges, and defeat the final boss on Mythic, all while maintaining a fun atmosphere to raid in. We finished Warlords of Draenor ranking 14th on Stormrage and managed to get 27 of our raiders the Felsteel Annihilator mount from Mythic Archimonde. We are now currently raiding Mythic Nighthold and looking for additional players (870 ilvl+) who seek a challenge and want to have fun.
      Raid Times:
      Friday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      Saturday: 7:30pm – 11:30pm EST
      <Turkeyism> is a weekend raiding guild that raids two nights a week from 7:30 – 11:30pm EST on Friday and Saturdays.
      In Demand Classes:
      Paladin (Holy/ret)
      Druid (Balance)
      Priests (Shadow)
      Hunters (Marksmen/Beastmaster)
      Warlocks (Affliction/Demonology)
      Monks (Mistweaver/Windwalker)
      (We prefer the classes listed above but all exceptional applicants will be considered.)
      Guild Expectations:
      So as a guild there are a few things we expect our raiders and recruits to do/know.
      First, we expect our raiders/recruits to know their class fairly well. They should also have a good grasp of the encounters by either having first-hand experience, or by watching tutorials and kill videos online. Knowledge is power as the saying goes.
      Second, we expect players who wish to be part of the core raid team to understand that attendance and showing up on time to raid is important to the success of the guild. We understand when real life issues come up, however it isn’t fair to the other 19 players who showed up if you continuously miss raid because of “reasons”. This is why we want to make sure that our raiders/recruits understand that by joining our raid team, you are making a commitment to the rest of the group to show up every week. Ultimately, we are all individuals working together towards a common goal and our success or failure as a group depends upon people committing to the team.
      Third, we expect our raiders/recruits to be able to take criticism from others. If we notice that you could improve in any manner, we won’t hesitate to point it out. We won't ever attack others for making mistakes, but we will politely let them know of their blunders and how they could improve.
      Fourth, raiders/recruits should be willing to sit out for certain encounters. We know it isn’t the most fun thing to have to sit out on a boss fight, especially if there is loot or if you’ve worked hard getting to that encounter. However, not all fights are created equal and sometimes we have to ask players to sit out in order to have the best group composition to complete the encounter. Your willingness to sit out won’t be forgotten and we try to make sure that everyone gets a chance to kill the boss and get loot.
      Fifth, all recruits are expected to present WarcraftLogs in their applications. This will give us an idea of how you handle mechanics and how well you performed. We understand that your time is valuable and so is ours. By looking at your WarcraftLogs we can get an idea if you can perform within the required range were looking for before bringing you in to raid with us.
      Finally, our guild is made up of players in their early 20’s/mid-30’s and our chat can sometimes get spicy and very adult oriented. We can sometimes talk about off the wall stuff, some of which can get very “Rated R” very fast.
