Hi all, I don't think there's been any recent Heroic Blackfuse threads so I figure I'll make one.
We're 3 nights into Blackfuse H progression and ~110 wipes (not sure if that's normal for most other prog raiders, I've never gone this far in terms of 'current-tier' heroic progression), and while the rest of the raid is working to perfect their execution on the boss, I thought I should learn how to optimize my gameplay.
My Hunter, as of last night, was 576, specced Beast Mastery/Survival, but I'm using Beast Mastery for full-time belt duty due to being able to use Bestial Wrath on every belt. Here is last night's log: http://www.worldoflogs.com/reports/r...ba/details/11/
One obvious problem is that my stat priority leans to survival (crit => haste > mastery), but to be perfectly honest I never fell behind in DPS with that stat prio in BM. Will going for Haste/Mastery be more ideal just for the sake of the belts?
Another concern is about the pet. Since our strat is destroying Missile Turrets, Blackfuse is tanked on the other side of the belt so I do not benefit from our rogue/dk's attack speed aura. I've been using a serpent since we're adopting that strat, but the attack speed cooldown seems to be such a turn-off and the buff dissipates if I dismiss the pet before disengaging to belt. Should I stick to using a serpent or should I try something else like Tallstrider for -armor?
Last thing that bothers me is the ability to solo 2nd belt. First solo always goes without a problem since I have bloodlust and trinket procs there and use Rabid/Bestial Wrath, but the second one seems to be a hit or miss. Sometimes even with agi pot, Stampede Rapid Fire and troll Berserking I couldnt solo the 2nd in time. Is there something I could do to solo 2nd belt more reliably? so our windwalker monk (who's on perma belt after 1st/2nd belt) can shift more dps to the boss until I'm out of steam.
Thanks for any criticism/feedback in advance Any other concerns that I somehow overlooked is also welcome.
