Big Big Big thank you with your Guides my Group managed realmfirst
Great thread it really helps out people who want to get gold
Saw some videos some months ago where the party manages to interrupt the Rise! ability of Darkmaster Gandling.
It is an extremely great thing, because the boss takes half damage while he channels Rise!.
Can someone tell me how is that possible?
Three Nights it took us. In total 15 hours or so.
We one-shot both Gate of the Setting Sun and Shado-pan Monastery. All except for Stormstout (took us 5 hours to perfect ) were pretty easy once we figured out a long Cc-chain for the bigger trash packs.
Blood DK (me) - Boomkin - Warlock - Frost Mage - Holy Paladin.
It was ALL because of your guides. You, my sir. Are a god.

How do ppl manage to do shado pan in 12-15 min? Is there any trick? I though one might send one "scout" to cancel arrows while 2 sha mobs are still alive after the first boss. This way you could cancel the arrow rain and start the rp. Can anyone confirm? I have no idea where you could squeeze more time out.
Into the Sha of Doubt or sha of whatever room and kill him as normal. As you exit this door you have your tank pick up the two mobs while everyone else runs to the body and all click it at the same time, you will get the 4/4 achievemnt here. Mount up, run to the bridge (no need to kill the purple stuff on the floor), go into the water on the right, all the way around so you're just past the temple type building and kill the next pack. Get across the bridge but don't engage the final mobs and turn left, you should easily have enough time to kill this boss. I think we only failed once on this place due to some funky DC's from our Healer. on the actual kill he was still disconnecting and we got to the end boss with over 2 mins to kill him for gold.
We have the Brewery and Scarlet Monastery to go. For us, the hardest part of challenge mode is sadly the Invisibility Potion boss (and internet issues). Potions and us messing up from those have caused us the most wipes and delay progress. Take what are the "hardest" with a grain of salt. For us, Halls was our learning experience and very tough. We found Found Gate-Scolo-Siege,Shado-Jade-Halls-Mogu. Halls was brutal also b/c of the pack before and After the 2nd boss was pretty rough packs for our comp. Most haven't been bad (tho we have the 2 worst to go) since dps isnt the issue for our comp. We have a squishy feral tank (love him!) Challenge modes have kept this patch fun for me.
As of right now (6/9 golds down) we found mogushan palace to be the toughest run for us to snag gold on. Hell we only cleared the gold time by 8 seconds and we were flying. It was definitely a hair puller at the end.
From practicing stormstout, shado pan and monestary I believe they will be easier then Mogushan palace was.
EDIT: Just did shado-pan Gold and it was such a joke. We then went to do scarlet monestery...not so much of a joke. lol. So glad that one is overwith and we hit a Gold time.
Now just Stormstout Brewery is left for 9/9
Edit 2: Server best time for Stormstout Brewery :P
For me and the group i ran with the 2 most anoying ones were Scarlet monestary and Brewery. Many annoying mobs/pulls in SM (only had 4 sec left when we got the gold). Brewery was just annoying since we didn't have the best burst for last boss and i think we did it a bit wrong... took us 3 hours to get gold in there but in the end we had 1 min 2 sec to spare
videos were awesome and helped us get some golds, only problem was our comp which to be fair does play a big part but can be worked around
Any tips people have for Darkmaster would be greatly appreciated!

Yes you can just AE them as well.
Make sure you have the transformation pot, it adds a lot of DPS.
Flawless - Go casual or go home.
Some of those vids helped alot, when we finally decided to do this, so ty
Ran with a pretty bad group (healer/tank wise), with prot pally, holy pally, hunter, ret, mage. Still managed to do them all, most within 1-2 hours, one shot shado-pan monastery and temple of the jade serpent.
Mogushan Palace was fucking retarded though.
Been following this videos and getting my cm's, at 5/9 atm , cheers
Just have Scholo Niuzao (missed of four seconds and we are gonna redo it, we lost some time because our hunter died early at 3rd boss), SM and MSP, ATM I wanna finish SM or Scholo last, And the guys I am usually running with will probably take down Niuzao pretty easy mode, and MSP should probably go fine. we also noticed that we had the 5% health, damage and healing buff in Challenge modes (something we used to not have :P)
