Warlock Solo - Immerseus 10 Normal
Today we are taking a look at clever use of boss mechanics that allow warlocks to solo Immerseus.



Addon - BossesKilled
The BossesKilled addon is a nice addition to the Raid Finder and Flex Raid UI that quickly shows you how many bosses you have killed in each wing, without having to select each one to check. Clicking a button will select that wing and the buttons will highlight if you are queued for that wing.

Less extra gear than you do today for sure. (Source)

In Warlords of Draenor, are crafted items likely to be able to acquire the bonus stats/socket?
Considering that just so they can compete. (Source)

A little confused what tanks will gear for on normal items? Mastery/Haste?
Yes, and even crit and other stats. (Source)

I'm assuming gems and enchants will still have spirit options, even though we're paring down. Correct?
Gems, yes. Still debating exact enchanting mechanics. (Source)

you can literally double your dps from one pull to another with different trinket rng right now. Not fun.
That's all a problem with the pull though. Otherwise RNG variance evens out over the course of a fight. (Source)
We want to make the "line up all CDs do do 50% of your DPS in the first 10 sec" thing go away. (Source)
I feel like Stormlash, Skull Banner and Prepot are huge contributors. Would be ok with all of them disappearing.
Except for prepot, none of the CDs offend us alone. It's the synergistic effect that is out of control. (Source)
Yet rules about X not working while Y is active can also be annoying, so it's not a simple fix. (Source)
Sure it is! Just don't add so many cooldowns to the game! If you see two spells too similar on 1 class, axe one
That pitch would mean no Recklessness for Fury or GoaK for Ret. Think there would be no outrage? (Source)

Shouldn't DPS roles in raid be rewarded for following trinket procs? I default UI still and have no problems being in top 98%+
Yeah, totally. That's the point of having them proc. The pendulum just swung too far the other way. (Source)

and all trinkets/CDs on the pull is fun/interesting, not having anything proc in the opener is boring and lowers skillcap.
Again, disagree that it's skillful. It might be fun to see big numbers but it's frustrating when you don't get the big numbers. (Source)
We then get pressure to basically insure that you get the big numbers, at which point pulling them off isn't exciting any longer. (Source)
Fixing things like snapshotting and less "on the pull" emphasis can keep it exciting without failure being debilitating. (Source)

PvE
Possible to give pets 15% exp/remove "always behind" in pet AI? Causes many issues that this easily solves
We don't really want pets standing on top of tanks. (Source)

Not sure right person to ask, but will there be any change about asia's different lockout and ilvl things in WoD?
Our hope is Asia can use the same model now. It will support multiple raid lockouts, which the current system does. (Source)

So is 1 in 50 players having their guilds merge/disband acceptable casualties? A "courageous" idea
That argument is an easy one to swing around. There are players who liked downranking or spell components. (Source)
But sometimes the game needs to change for the good of the game as as whole, even if individual players don't agree. (Source)

I'm confused on how loot lockouts will work. do normal, heroic and mythic all share a loot lockout?
No. A loot lockout only applies to one difficulty level. Mythic works mostly like heroic today. (Source)

Cant you keep difficulties same as now, adding Mythic on top of it? People wont careas much at that level is all about progres
It is possible to have too many difficulty levels. Aren't you asking for a 7th? (Source)

But do you PREFER to let them decide that? It's often 1 person thinking for the group, w/o consulting them.
That seems like a social issue if you mistrust your guild or pug. (Source)
Even pugs need to have some teeth, or they are just back to LFR's level of no responsibility for anyone. (Source)

Misc
You overuse "depth" like players overuse "clunky."
I'm a former scientist, so I try to use words precisely. "Depth" to me means that there is more going on than first appears. (Source)
That's a useful feature of game design because it plays into easy to learn / difficult to master. (Source)
The problem with "clunky" is many players just use it to mean "I don't like this," which lacks precision. (Source)
Our original, internal use of clunky, which likely spilled out onto the forums, had a precise meaning. (Source)
We originally used "clunky" to mean something that was unintuitive and required extraneous steps to achieve. (Source)
An example could be old Berserker Rage for a tank -- stance dance out of Defensive, break the fear, stance dance back. (Source)

Yes, I agree, swing the nerfbat much much harder at removing cooldowns with dumb visuals :P
Thinking something like GoAK for Prot, wings for Ret, Divine Favor with a better visual for Holy. (Source)
I like it. Guardians should "guard" after all. Does that change Divine Favor mechanically for Holy at all?
I don't know. It was raw idea more than a design. (Source)

    The Immerseus solo is theoretically doable for any range class with a pet and able to avoid damage/heal themselves.
    I managed to get it down to around 40% in total before I lost concentration and fucked up on my Frost Mage (with only 548 ilvl)

    However, yes. I does take a very Very long time (took my about 90mins to get it down to 40mins)

    ps. The people that say pets take 90% less damage from aoe are correct. However, they take 90% less damage from Unavoidable aoe. They take 100% less damage from Avoidable aoe. As all the damage apart from the explosions when the boss remerges is avoidable then the pets take no damage at all apart from that 1 point where you can very easily heal them back up.

    So does anyone know his name so we can look him up? I wonder if I could attempt this on my warlock, I'd certainly do it over and over until I got everything Warforged I could use. But also... how did he solo the trash? Lol I don't know of 9 people who would waste their time to come clear it just to hearth out. /shrug

    Really? I'm impressed. I have a 552 hunter and a 560 warlock I'd love to try this on, free gear! Lol. But like my post above this, how'd you get past trash?

    As a mage you can simply rocket boost + invis past it. Hunter I'd say you could either use 2 invis pots and wait in the middle. With lock you can soulstone yourself. Jump down into the pool and get as close to the pack on the left as possible, put a gateway up to the middle between the trash pack and the 2 big guys. Jump, ress yourself when you pull, then do the same again to get past the big guys.

    In the solo video, at 3:15, he has an Hero/BL debuff? And I find rare that he don't have the Dark Intent buff up (or maybe I didn't saw it on his interface).

    When you get inside jump straight down to where those blobbs spawns instead of walking on the sides then use one invis pot to get past the first pack, go and stand between the first and the second pack then soulstone yourself and send a pet to pull the second pack use burning rush and run towards immersus, use dark bargain if you need it to get far enough so that you can ress without pulling anything. Now just keep soulstone up during boss tries so you don't have to do it again.

    You guys are acting like everyone is doing it. It's only few skilled and dedicated players doing it, not everyone in timeless gear. Besides it's Immerseus - first boss of the tier. It's not like he's supposed to be hard.

    Hehe awesome solo.
    ...and yeah, as people above said, it's hardly the first time people are soloing current-tier bosses (not to mention the warlock is in like full hc gear).

    Love the Dark Legacy comic too, funny and true. <3

    It is the first time. The only exception might have been Hydross.
    That being said, number-wise they aren't soloable. This is just an encounter having a mechanic allowing you to bypass completely any number requirement.

    This is true, but it was WELL after the raid opened if I remember right. Lest we forget, we were in ICC for like 20 years before the new xpac lol.

    Havent even read the comments - if anyone is crying "warlocks OP" ANY PET CLASS can do the same, also works on Ji Kun. Literally any pet class can do the exact same thing.
