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.



- 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.

      Q1: Why no Skull?
      A1: In the purest form of greedy control, the goal is to answer to everything and set up for the best turn 25+ match up. With so many board wipes, removal and heals, we usually have the time to draw a voidlord or two, cube them, copy the cube, and make a sandwich. 
      Q2: How do you win?
      A2: Fatigue plays a factor, but you'd be surprised how much damage 6 1/3s deal... wait no you wouldn't... its definitely 6.
      Q3: How do you sleep at night you monster?
      A3: I like to drink green tea an hour before bed and listen to piano with rain in the background. Link below.
      Q4: What do you do against Raza Priest or Exodia Mage?
      A4: Accept that combo decks will occasionally go off before I can beat them down. Usually their impatients is their undoing though.

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)

      The Sworn is recruiting DPS.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 4/9 Mythic TOS.  We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 9:05 PM until 12:05 AM Eastern.  Currently, our main goal is to push Mythis TOS progression versus clearing farmed content, please keep this in mind if you wish to join us.
      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, you can either reply to this thread and link your most recent combat logs for review or hit me up on battlenet, Violentnacho, recruiting officer (violentravi#1826.
      Thank you for your consideration
