Does switching to my healer toon work? I mean invite someone just so my healer toon would get locked to 25 dreamwalker... or is it just better to get healing gears and mistweaver spec??
163 minutes 15 seconds - heroic faction champions 25. Don't EVER want to do it again.
Any tips for Ultraxion as BRM? I'm failing hard at it, my health drops too fast. Current ilvl is 533 with a mix of LFR and Timeless gear, no tanking gear or set bonuses. 4500 haste, 15% expertise and stacking crit.
I have no issues on a similarly geared Blood DK, especially with rotating cooldowns. As BRM do our cooldowns get reduced also, or did Blizzard neglect to update the fight?
Can one solo LK as MW? Or will they certainly hit the enrage timer? If that's the case how much of an ilvl does a WW monk need to solo it rather easily?
Oh, and does one still need to kill every single boss before LK to reach LK or not?
I know it's late, but soloed Firelands normal. Oneshotted everything, and killed ragna after wiping due to knockback into lava.
I don't know if this has already been done before, but I did Algalon 25 man as a WW, ilvl is 575 although no HWF weapons.
New day, new boss, done a long time ago by DKs, but when the strat consists in not only running around the boss for the eternity, the fight becomes quite insane.
I had serious doubts about the feasibility, and I had to push dps on the water of extremely high survival to squeeze enough dps.
Even with this, even with using EH out of the range of the adds (or the adds take damages instead of the boss = lack of dps) or just regarding tons of priorities, each try, whatever the crits or procs, during 50 attempts, each good attempt (only 10% of these) reached the enrage, always.
Now, I have 573 ilvl with a weapon 574, so it's obvious that monks closer from 580/581 will done this much easily, but still, what's a dps race if you don't have to push yourself beyond the limits ? Imo, it's the only way to progress, as far I know.
I wonder if monotarget dps of BrM monks should be increased ? Oh wait, the edge isn't enough deep, it's obvious !
Take it to the next level :
Also Yan-Zhu Challenge mode down (Stormstout Brewery). So this + the 3 last of Shado-Pan CM already soloed before, means that 3 Challenge Mode instances have been soloed by Monks (Niuzao, Brewery and Shado-Pan) !
20/33, who's the next, who's the next ?!
This encounter took 16 minutes and 7 seconds, and is a mix between survival (CD rota) + dps race + kiting + anticipation healing + timing... all the stuff we love :3
It's not really a matter of gear since the stats are extremely low (about 5000 crit, 1200 haste and 600 mastery for Yan-Zhu and Gu Cloudstrike so roughly 7k stat).
Now, regardless the fact it's mostly about survival skill, I would say that the mastery is the worst stat for BrM soloing (in most of the cases). Crit is the best in terms of both damages and survival (crit does approximately 3 times more dps than haste), even if haste is sometimes more valuable than crit, particurlarly in high motion situations (like Liu Flameheart).
About the gear, I use my raidgear, which already respects the main stat priority :
Hit + Exp (15%) > Crit > Haste > Mastery
However, it sometimes happen to find a boss where stats aren't the same. Don't take it as a general truth.
To resume :
* Dps need = Hit + Exp > Crit > Haste (mastery useless)
* Survival Need =
- On physical damages : Hit + Exp > Crit > Haste and Mastery (these two stats are bound so it depends of how comfortable you are with the shuffle timer + destag)
- On physical + magic damages : Hit + Exp > Crit and Haste (now, it's a question of numbers. Ex : on majordomo, at the moment when ilvl was around 500 for N, it was better to use haste) > Mastery
- On pure magic damages : Haste > Crit > Hit + Exp > Mastery (Like Lei Shi or Garalon [soloing version])
Now, there's no real numbers like 8456 crit, 7849 Haste and ... nope. Everything is a question of fluency depending on the player.
Hope the answer is relevant cuz you may ask about my gear which is... let's say a bit neglected. I'm not doing Harlan right now.
I've been doing Ulduar with 2-3 other people for a while now farming the mount, I've gotten the legendary having ran it so many times. I've since learned how to solo Thorim, who was otherwise a pain because of one person having to stay in the arena and another person go through the gauntlet. On the same run managed to solo Yogg-Saron 25 0 keepers. So from now on I can farm the mount all on my lonesome.
I'm looking to change my OS from Brew to Mist. I enjoy brew for being able to solo a lot of stuff for transmog and mounts that WW cant. can MW solo anything that WW can't?
If what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. Then I should be a god by now.
Cant specifically think of anything mistweaver can do that windwalker cant except maybe dreamwalker in icc which takes 10 times as long as ww. But besides mop raids I think windwalker can solo pretty much all raids if you are geared. Maybe not bot (havent tried it personally but the first boss would be a pain id imagine)
