    I actually try him on H, but the ball is the same thing.
    I prefer to chose Dampen Harm on the 8th, 9th and 10th stacks since this CD is always up (Diffuse Magic works, obviously).
    Try to always stacks 10, and to just stack the ball on him about 1-2 secs before enrage since you'll gain time on berserk.
    You can survive to the enrage, really. You can keep your FB for this to help a lot.
    How I do it with Dampen Harm :
    First ball : 10 stacks = Guard at the beginning of the fight to have it for the 5th stack. Dampen Harm for 8th, 9th and 10th stacks.
    Second ball : 10 stacks = FB at 5 stacks and Dampen Harm for the 8th, 9th and 10th stacks.
    Third ball : 10 stacks if you have problems of dps = Dampen Harm when damages become high. (8th, 9th, 10th stacks if possible).
    Fourth ball : 10 stacks if you can = Dampen Harm for the 3 last, as ever, but no FB. More, you can kite the boss to squeeze dps and reduce enrage survival timer.
    Enrage : Immediatly use FB while he starts attacking, you should have 20 secs of survival which allow you to destroy the boss.
    Ball ticks for 450k at the 10th stack on Heroic, I don't remember on normal difficulty but it appears as something like 250/300k.

    Anyone had any luck with gluth 25?

    Just recently switched to my brewmaster late this teir. Did LK and ultraxion in 3-4 attempts each. 543 ilvl, no meta.

    So I went for LK 25man HC as a mistweaver. I was so wrong about many things, for example survival is so much harder than expected, unlike tanks, shamblings and LK can crit us, which means hits for ~250k or more and that's nasty with occasional silences and/or Soul Reaper. Even reaching the last phase wasn't as easy as expected so I went for a safe tactic during his mid phase, which is of course huge waste of DPS but at least I was able to hit the enrage and not dying before (LK was about 30% hp, still ridiculously high).

    Taking my gear in consider, I would say Reglitch might be able to hit 20% or slightly less IF he can DPS only LK and survive all the shamblings and haunting spirits (killing them is out of option, our AoE is pathetic and our cleave is simply not enough). In 5.4, it should be quite killable tho.

    Do you have a WoL for these attempts? One thing I'm noticing is you don't have a legendary meta gem, could see the tank one being very useful when you're being hit by so many adds.

    Still missing 4 Secrets of Empire for legendary meta gem so I hope I'll have it this week. Sadly, I don't have logs from these attempts but I can probably printscreen detailed Skada results (dmg done adds/lk percentage ratio, dmg taken, etc.) for you if you want to.

    Anyway, I find this particular encounter very enjoyable because the challenging aspect is mostly HPS/DPS rather than some annoying mechanism (Yogg 25, Thorim 25). I'll probably give it a shot with ilvl 600 cloak again and more importantly full crit reforge (btw. for raw damage int gems or crit gems?) and maybe even a bit more spirit (as I have 3,4% parry chance from boss with around 8k of spirit right now).

    Is there anywhere that is kept up to date with the current status of bosses which have been solo'd and those that haven't? (Specifically for BrM)

    I'm interested in seeing which are the more challenging.

    Yes. Monks tanking gear is the same as their DPS gear, just different stat priorities. You can use the same set for both DPS and Solo BrM but I've found it's better to have a second set in terms of reforging.

    An extension to that, what yields the highest DPS increase, is it crit or haste? (After going for hit/exp cap of course)

    It depends on your ilvl really.

    I don't tank raids, and only do LFR for gear so my ilvl's ~508. I was running a full BrM forged set for soloing, but many pieces were still 476/483ilvl and found it was better to use the 502+ gear in my WW set and have some pieces overlap... slowly I'm getting a T15 LFR BrM full set.

    Anyway, my BrM/WW hybrid gear sits ~7k haste with 30% crit and about 13% expertise. Even with Ascension, I feel my haste is too low when solo, but if I prioritize it over crit, then I end up ~8.5k haste as WW which is waaaay too much. Can never use FoF or Energizing brew without energy capping.

    So from my experience, I reckon Haste still has value over crit for soloing, but in terms of raw DPS, I think Crit trumps out haste, but if you're purely after DPS to push over a solo encounter, the you may aswell go WW. More haste as BrM give you more energy which is more survival combined with DPS.

    Yea I'd be inclined to go Monk over Feral. Purely because I don't like Resto or Balance playstyle. That being said, I don't like BrM as a Tank spec either, but I love it for solo.

    Question for all you Mistweaver's out there.... Are there any bosses that you can't solo as MW or WW that force you into BrM? Or for you BrM out there who don't have a WW offspec, how do you find dailies?

    I'm crying out for Tri-Spec at the moment. MW is my PvP spec of Choice, and I bounce between MW & WW in PvE (less so now with the change loot spec option). I do dailies as WW, and farm Isle of Giants as BrM, aswell as solo the harder raid content as BrM.

    Getting sick to death of re-speccing but can't decide if I should stick with a WW/MW setup, MW/BrM, or just PvP as WW, keep BrM as the offspec and let MW die.

    Not asking "What should I play" just looking for peoples experiences with soloing harder raid bosses as MW instead of BrM, and/or how those without a WW spec find the daily grind. I've just capped conquest and if I end up dumping MW, don't want want to waste the points!

    Cheers

    Depends on what kind of content you're looking at, but really hard bosses such as T11 heroics aren't doable as MW currently.

    Yea assumed as much, not looking to do Heroic content, but wouldn't mind pushing into Tier 11 since I didn't raid early Cata and never got the achievements for for anything pre Firelands.

  17. #777
    3/4 in BoT is doable, Magmaw is a joke, so is omnitron, maloriak is impossible, chimaeron/arty probably doable, not sure about nef.

    Good to know cheers.

  19. #779
    Magmaw and Omnitron is joke in decent gear but you can't do anything in DS for example as a MW (while Brm can do 8/8).

  20. #780
    Think I might just bite the bullet and go MW/BrM then. I only use WW for dailies and LFR when I can't be bothered healing... but I can just fitweave my way through that and top healing while doing middle of the road DPS in most groups!

    I haven't pushed any solo content past ICC yet, so probably safer to stick with BrM regardless.
