    Got hc spine to 40% on the 3rd plate (twice), dont have enough patience to keep going. 100% doable. 15-min enrage is a total non-issue, hell nothing about the numbers is an issue at all. the only issue are these god damn rolls that take 100% of my focus and cause me to make the most stupid mistakes, i wish there was a way to track them other than reading the chat... hell, just having working blizzard warnings would be enough.

    (oneshotted it on normal so i won't be tempted to give more attempts. at least I know that this strat has absolutely 0 RNG, i will add spine+madness normal to my 8hour "speedrun" as a consequence)

    isnt there a insta-kill debuff on heroic? is there a way to avoid it or are you jsut capable of taking the hit with CDs?

    you take the hit with cds.

    or you don't, because all your attention is on reading the fucking chat and you forget to cd.

    I'm happy to shout "left, right, left, right" for 15 minutes if that is what it takes
    On that note, I got beta access so if you need a hand with Jinrokh toss me a PM or a whisper on kazzak and I'll help you out, want to give Ji'kun a try myself

    Install a boss mod with sounds and you can listen to "5..4..3..5..4..3..2..5..4..5..4..3..2......" for 15min, I don't see the issue

    Mionee didn't speak about beta, this is live spine HC going down (With a bit more awareness)

    I believe the voice doesn't overlap, but it simply stop the voice when the old action stops.

    big wigs doesnt work

    and yeah this is on live. it's really doable if you have the patience though, I got to the 3rd plate on something like my third or fourth attempt , but 2 hours later i was still struggling with reading the chat and these fucking rolls. if you can find a way to make rolls more visible to you than 100px x 50 px on your screen, you should be fine, there really isn't much to the fight with our current dps/hps

    Try DBM instead perhaps?

    Use DBM for that fight used it back in the days when i killed normal. works like a charm as fnx said. 5 4 3 2 5 4 3 .. etc. when you hear the 1 its to late and the roll will happen for sure

    i killed it on normal to save myself the pain of wasting more time, and i will do speedruns later weeks, so im not coming back anyway

    might be wrong tho, maybe it is soloable. for now i'm not wandering in MSV tho
    Stone Guard can be soloed on beta done it yesterday, needed like 5 trys cause the dot recks hard

    Re: normal 10 spine of deathwing:

    I don't seem to be able to stop him from rolling on cooldown (which is almost constant) no matter where I stand (trying to stand right in the middle doesn't work either, he starts to roll immediately) or even if I move to other side (I thought that would cause him to straighten out? doesn't seem to be) which means I never have enough time to dps down the amalgamations to free up a plate.

    Would love some advice on what I'm doing wrong, I feel like it's the roll mechanism I'm doing wrong but not sure what exactly.

    You can't stop him from constantly trying to roll at all. Not sure what you mean by not having time to nuke the amalgations, they really don't have that high health.

    seems like they have about 5 mil health? I'll run it again and check. If I can't stop him from rolling constantly it seems there is a timing issue so that you kill a corruption at just the right time (presumably immediately after a roll?) in order to gain enough time to dps the amalgamation down? So far I've gotten like 1-2 globals to touch the amalgamation before it gets blown off, which just isn't enough time


    edit: double checked, they Amals have 4.7 mil hp; also, by timing death of a corruption as deathwing is casting his roll, I can gain enough time, maybe 5-7 seconds, to dps the amalgamation before the next roll, but it hasn't been enough time yet to get them to start their nuclear blast spell. Is this the basic process, though? I'm just not dps'ing them down fast enough in between rolls? Or am I missing something else?

    If you constantly keep moving the amalgations should never get blown off. That's the key to this fight and prolly the main reason it's so annoying; you can (almost) never stop moving back and forth between the left and right side of the spine. The only time you can stop moving is to get rid of the extra amalgations after a plate so you can gather the blood on a single one.

    much thanks, Kraeth. Got the 1st plate off and then got too excited and lost my timing. You are correct sir this is not a pleasant fight, but at least I understand the process now. Thanks again.

    You're very welcome, glad I could help. MoD is more or less a walk in the park after spine
