    I want 5.5 to be here now so I can get my darn rank 11!

    Heck, I even want the PTR for 5.5 to be here now so I can practice on the fights to try and get server first.

    I'm sad 5.4 didn't have any new bosses, not even a card boss. However if I remember right, during the dev interviews they said their encounter team had something in store for the next patch that wasn't a raid. Hoping for some really fun stuff like hexos and ahooru and trex. Had so much fun with this little feature, but it's not very repeatable.

    I'd rather do this than dailies or timeless isle maybe they can incentivize it?

    I have a question about Big Badda Boom 1/4 rank 9.
    As a Rogue, I have really got some trouble beating this npc. I'm currently Assa, but it seems I can't really survive the last part where the small ones explode, anyone got a good idea to do this?
    I am using cloak, but I can't get all the small ones down before my cloak is off again.
    Be strong, Clarence! Be strong for mother!

    I just started giving this a proper go last night, as an ilvl522 Arms Warrior with not so great gear (timeless 3 stat 535 items, 502+8 weapon and cheap enchants), have to say it was all pretty easy and doable until I got to Hexos... I did beat it eventually but I don't know what sadistic, sick minded person came up with that fight. It was so much more difficult than anything before and the fight after it felt like a free kill after it.

    I don't know how many attempts it took me and I don't want to know. If blizzard want to make hard raid content they just need a raid boss where 3/10 people get sent into a room to do the hexos maze, slap on a dps/healing requirement! Looking forward to hitting rank 10 but not sure if I should give it a rest and fix my gear first, got the rank 8 robot boss next up.

    Problem is when you're in 520+ you are really trivializing most of the dps checks. The only real one left at that gear level is mingus diggs (bonus boss from archeology). Ahoo'ru usually gives people a few wipes getting used to teh orbs though.

    hexos raid fight with real dps requirement, maybe jumping as well, healing etc, added in would be awesome.

    My ilvl522 wasn't really 522 though due to the 3 stat items and a weak weapon, since posting I actually improved my gear while my ilvl went down a fair bit from properly itemised items. Playing as Arms too it doesn't really have any burst damage, I've seen other classes pull off the burst needed in weak gear but Arms can't even come close to a fraction of what they can do (ele shamans prime example) even if the Arms Warrior would eventually pass that player in a longer fight.

    So last night I aquired an ilvl540 weapon (bumped my ilvl back up) and finished off up to rank 10. The Robot was not an issue, but it was always survival where I was going to struggle. The Snake caused me big issues as it kept bugging out and stopping on its own accord, I also put on some lvl85 boots from my bank that didn't have runspeed on them, then with walk turned on I was moving at the right pace, it was just a matter of doing it until he didn't bug out, with new weapon the dps requirement was not an issue.

    Next boss I had an issue with was Ahoo'ru, I didn't realise that I had to get P1 over as fast as possible and wiped to enrage a few times before trying to get the angels out as fast as possible and cleave them down. I had 2 400k wipes from simply being too slow in phase 1 and then beat it easily with a fairly lucky placement of P1 angel orbs.


    I found Hexos was the most difficult, I also did it in gear that was only capable (simcraft) of about 120k dps in a raid, but with the new upgrades though Nibbler was extremely annoying it was just a matter of time, Ahoo'ru was a bloody hard fight (or atleast annoying), but I suppose once you learn it you could do it over and over no problem.

    Can't you just use feint?

    I think the explosion should count as AoE, not sure though.
    Too often, we are mistaken for druidic types. perhaps that's true for some shaman, but do not let yourself be plagued by the ignorant belief that we are always peaceful.
    Nothing about what I do is harmonious. I command the elements to my will. There is nothing offered in return. I would have it no other way.

    Well i finally defeated all the Brawler bosses as a fury warrior (including all the hard card bosses), and the four rare rank 8 bosses.
    Even though i was ilvl 540, the old rank 8 bosses did feel kind of like they had been nerfed.
    Disruptions laser hit boxes felt like they decreased (i had attempted him at least 100 times patch 5.2), and i killed him in 2 attempts.
    I have to say the ilvl jump from 500-540 from when i last stopped in brawlers guild (i was stuck on snake and archaelogy card boss) really made it a cake walk.
    All thats left is 3 cards from pet battle, heroic scenario and blingtron

    Finished my last fight tonight. In hindsight had I waited 'til tomorrow, I could have used a legendary cloak that would have shaved off a few seconds for killing Diggs.


    I hope they add in more content soon for 5.5. Overall the BG has been my favorite thing they've added to WoW since xmog. Some RNG factors need to be ironed out though. Random Nibbleh enrages weren't very fun.

    Out of curiosity - why do it on your dk?

    Anyway - for melee this boss is hell. You need to balance out moving backwards and avoid him getting buffed. Even a second he stands in green slime/puddle and you're dead. Remember to make quick turns in the corner so he won't get buffed. For me switching run/move helped a lot. Good luck

    Because it's fun! I'm at or past rank 9 on 3 characters now. It's a different challenge for each one, and it definitely helps you learn your class, which is helpful for alts.

    Tune your monitor's brightness up. Also hit v to see nameplates so the angels don't get lost in the sea of bright lights.

    I'd tinker with both and see what would be decent results.

    I recommend turning off flux if you use that. ( http://justgetflux.com/ Is what I am talking about. )

    I had similar issues as a rogue. If you haven't already, turn off all scrolling battle text for this fight. I found this to be a HUGE help.

    Second, I forget where it is located in options, but turn off the camera auto adjusting. This helped me in the alliance arena (not sure if you're horde/alliance).

    If you have any other addons that clutter your screen, get rid of them as well. You don't need fancy stuff for this fight, just have to be able to see clearly. Blizz could have helped a bit by not making the angels the exact same color as the orbs though -_-
