'I await the day when the claws of doom shall rise. Of a day when the earth shall open wide and the black, bottomless, yawning abyss engulfs the arrogant civilizations of Man. Chthonic retribution shall ascend amidst universal pandemonium and Those who slither and crawl shall rise again once more to inherit the earth.'When you walk among the Black Forest, you will see.
I got to Wave 6 in Gold my first try doing it. The banana tosser + healer is annoying because the healer doesn't move so I keep eating the -75% hit.
Could probably finish Gold next time I try it.

Haven't even finished gold yet, but I got to round 9 last time so I'll probably have it soon. I think I'll get really frustrated with the endless thing if there's a lot of those sha dudes ;_;
Any talent in particular that you guys think is extra helpful for this? Personally I think Disrupting Shout works wonderfully for when you have two healers close or if you're tunneling a mob and you see someone close but not close enough cast something. But yeah, I guess the other talents on that row are pretty useless for Proving Grounds
I finished silver as tank for the achievement, if that counts :P
Also got my title as tank
Most fun i've had in a long time tbh.
DD Wave 39, the last mob had 10% when I wiped and I left one berserker buff for the wave 10, because it was extremely close on wave 29. Probably gonna try to push to fifty when I get an 2h axe with decent stats instead my hit/crit sword -_-
Thanks for the tips, yeah I wasn't really using my big 3m CDs at all. Wanted to save it for a later wave.
Got to wave 39 in endless mode. I realized i didn't have the dps to beat the wave 40 sha so i just blew all cds on wave 39 but still didn't manage to kill the last mob before timer ran out T_T.
But i got another title i will never use .
I went there with my raid gear (so, legendary meta, non-optimized gear, etc) and I am currently at 9th wave on DPS (Arms) and 18th or 19th wave on Tank.
Great challenge, I found gold pretty easy as Arms (compared ton the tank one), but Infinity waves are not friendly at all.
The biggest issue of course lies in the fact that the wave 10 sha boss becomes more and more about getting lucky as you progress. For example to beat the wave 40 sha boss you just need to pray your trinkets proc just as his shield comes down and that all your slams crit during CS. I havent done it personally but the fact that i beat the wave 30 sha boss with around 2 seconds left gives me enough data to assume the above.

I got some questions on that:
What would be the optimal proving grounds gear?
How do sockets/gems get factored in?
What is with legendary procs (gem/cloak)?
What is with set bonuses?
Is a weapon with +500str sha socket worth it?
What buffs will work? (flask/food etc.)
What is with those drops from timeless isle, all those buff stuff. Does it work?
I Did the silver tank challenge as fury just so that I could get the achievement "You're doing it wrong". Took around 1h to master it as dps through timed shockwave, fear, stormbolt , spell reflect and disrupting shout usage.
DPS to Gold was a bit boring, took like 1h to clear from bronze to gold in a one rush. First fail was obviously on the last wave because the not-so-planned CD usage. On the next try I saved the berserker buffs so I could make it. Have to try the endless wave soon though!

Best way to do that one is on a WW monk. DT the tosser, win.

2) Seems to be the same as challenge mode...
3) Useless. But keep it on, as no other cloak is going to get you 3 bonus stats.
4) Wish I had some set bonuses to try that.
5) Since sockets don't seem to affected I would say yes. Should actually get mine out of the bank and see...
6) Any player buffs, flasks, and food. Anything you could use doing a heroic dungeon you can use here.
7) A lot of it specifically says works only on timeless isle, those that don't, not so sure.
Anyway, wiped on 10th wave (infinity) the first time I've reached it because I blew my cooldowns earlier and didn't expect such a single-target mid-boss. Since, I've tried to keep my cooldowns for this wave but doing waves 8 and 9 without Banner/Recklesness is hard.
Probably. Fury needs crit and gear is scaled down to 463. Since the warrior has no innate crit you are probably better up as arms.
I wonder if ele shamans can get to infinity level 100...
Well, you can get to wave 20+ as fury too, you can still reach 28% crit. But still, Arms is so much stronger there, so if you can, go Arms.
