    Why do you have to beat the enrage?

    I mean he still won't kill you.

    I was under the impression that he'd gain attack speed and use up absorb shield before able to reapply.

    The fact that a few people in this thread are under the impression that Fury Ward is actually absorbing real hits from Chim is just sad.

  4. #664
    Just want to clarify a few things regarding the absorb mechanics of Chim.

    The shield does not absorb the difference between current health and 10000, but in fact its the difference between current health and 1. After all, the latter difference is the damage you are supposed to take should you not have a shield on.

    With that said, the so called bug actually came from the order in which damage is calculated. When the boss dishes out a hit, it first checks the player's health. If health is below 10k then the damage is dealt as normal without finkle's mixture. Same applies if health is greater than the actual hit. But if health is less than the hit but above 10k, then it first uses finkle's mixture to absorb the surplus, effectively reducing the hit down to current health minus 1. Only after this reduction does the system then checks for any absorption effects from the player. If no absorption effects, the damage is dealt, ie, the player takes current health minus 1 as damage. If there is an absorption effect, then the damage will become absorbed. Double hits just counts as 1 hit after another and follows the same rule.

    So for example if you have 12000 hp, and put on a shield that can absorb 75k, When the boss does a hit, the system first uses finkle's mixture to reduce to hit down to 11999 damage. And then since you have a shield, that damage becomes absorbed, and your shield can absorb 63001 more damage.

    Update from before. I've gained 2 levels and a few quest/dungeon items.

    I assume it'd be easy enough to solo Kael currently, yes?

    I wouldn't say easy but should definitely be doable, for best bet pull kael and run out of his room and spread the advisors out from there all the way to the entrance so you don't get overwhelmed in P3.

    Congrats on the kill, but can we please refrain from calling stuff 'world first'? There are many other people that have gotten first solo kills on fights in here but don't throw around the 'world first' tag on it. This tag is starting to feel quite overused and obnoxious...

    Nothing obnoxious about it. He was the first Warlock to do it, he pioneered the strategy, so he should get credit for it.

    Congratulations, Kalen.

    I'm not trying downgrade his accomplishment, I just feel that so many people throw around the 'world first' tag on everything they do these days.

    And how do you know if you were even first doing it? Because you were first posting about it on a forum providing a screenshot or do you have to upload a video to YouTube as proof? It's a silly topic and I agree with you with there not being much point to brag about it.

    This game THRIVES on personal and group accomplishments. Being the first to do it is a big deal to LOTS of players. Just because you don't have an interest in it doesn't mean others don't.

    You might be into achieves, and another player might be into collecting all the pets. Others might be into soloing content first, or making gladiator.

    My point is, if you're the first to do it, brag your butt off. You deserve it!

    Managed to solo LK 10 normal last night. Felt pretty good, expecially because I had tried quite a few specs to do it. Destruction was terrible, ended up swapping to demo with soul link/harvest life and 2/5 tier 5 (thank god I saved them pieces). Wiped like 15-18 times with that spec because I either got picked up by a valkyr, then I remembered I could ofcourse use my teleport to avoid the falling and after that I found out our threat drop changes into a taunt... I really should go through my spellbook more often.

    Some more wipes caused by necrotic plague (stacks of 10-12) raping me coming off dieing ghouls. Then found out I could flap my wings to knock them back just before they die, learn 2 play issue I guess.

    So that was my first ICC 10 normal solo run, sucks that I needed help to do Valithria but oh well. Next week ill do ICC 10 heroic. Is recording with fraps high enough quality for such things?

    2x two handed mace as loot, bitch please. Having some serious fun soloing old content !

    You would have a much easier time as Affliction and letting your pet tank. He won't get targeted by Necrotic Plague so you can just make sure he's tanking whichever mob is infected by the Plague and it will spread around the mobs and never reach you (since you'll be stood at range). When a 1 stack plague is cast on you then you just run in with some cooldowns up, drop the plague, run out.

    You use Soulburn: Health Funnel to keep your pet alive and Drain Soul the boss as needed for shards.

    You shouldn't really get overwhelmed, you can equip staves.

    I've heard the staff can be buggy at times, not sure if it actually is or if people just fail to click the staff twice to get the buff. All I know is I haven't used the staff since 5.0 because I can just blow everything up faster if I use my higher end weapon.
