    Holy shit, lol.

    That said, Sigryn isn't hard on any class - but it's a lot easier on Enhancement and Assassination due to the much better mobility. The cleave is mostly inconsequential, but it helps.

    Also, you being arrogant about it doesn't really help your argument, it just makes you look like a dick.
    The rest of this is okay though. Cleave helps but doesn't make or break the fight. It's a mechanics fight. More dps makes it shorter and so less opportunity to fuck up on repetition, but it's all about the mechanics.

    I beat the WW one the day it came out at 893 ilvl and tried the same challenge as BM at around 910 ilvl a few months later and still couldn't beat it. I did beat the surv and MM ones no issue though.

    I can probably beat it now but honestly, its a shit looking weapon and I'll never use it (just like the enhance, fire and arcane mage, elemental, and mistweaver weapons).

    Ret paladin was my 2nd one beat at round 897 ilvl.

    This is all subjective.
    Ret tower took me probably 100 or so attempts. It was alot. Though, I did start doing it as soon as it was available and my gear was low ilvl for much of my attempts. But still, it took quite a while for me to figure out the runes, the valkyrs, etc.

    But the prot tower took me literally 4 attempts. It was incredibly easy....for me.

    Its a matter of gear, luck, and skill. Its different for different people. I would say keep plugging away at it. You don't have much longer, you'll feel great when you beat it.

    If there's one thing I'm not, it's in control.

    It's not the easiest mechanics wise (IMO) but I was able to cheese it with 910ish iLV when it was relevant. Used fist instead of repent, saved it for sig and I went balls out AoE with divine hammer. If you have the latest tier, I can imagine how easy it would be to burst them down via judgement crits.

    Judged sig, Eye for an Eye during enrage, took them all to town. At a certain health percentage, many of the mechanics just seem to stop. I also had that cheat death legendary too during the time. I'm sure it helped.
    The wise wolf who's pride is her wisdom isn't so sharp as drunk.

    Don't know; Outlaw and Survival both seem easier and more controllable, albeit i've done them in better gear.

    Because they haven't tried the feral one.

    Mechanically it was the easiest for me because of Ret's kit and ability to Repentance Sigryn the entire time, but I had awful DPS and literally spent nine minutes on it lmao. As somebody had already mentioned above though, the main key to the challenge is learning the mechanics. You're pretty much ensured a victory if you know the mechanics and timings (which boss mods will hold your hand for); treat it like an actual raid boss, avoid stupid mistakes, and you'll win.

    Easily countered by the Ret toolkit? Sure i’ll give em that. Easiest? Hell no. After doing both Frost and Unholy DK (Xylem and Imp mother) a couple days ago on my alt I can say that Ret doesn’t have the easiest Mage Tower chellenge. Doesn’t mean it’s hard, but it’s still not the easiest.

    People exaggerate.

    I just did it today. I got it on attempt #7. I was familiar with the challenge after doing Assassination and Demo months ago.

    Imo, the difficulty of this challenge is the rng of abilities. My failed attempts were when seemingly every mechanic happened at once. If you prioritize your attention on the purple runes and valkyrs, (obviously have to deal with the npcs special moves), you will eventually win.

    With that said, the only challenge I had an easier time with was feral.

    I made this challenge with retri and arcane and it's very hard, far from easy. Fire mage was easier, for example. Expect few hundred tries.

    Here's my tips:

    1. Use DBM. It works reliably with some spells, not for all spells though.
    2. Use weakaura for valkyrs. That's the hardest part in this fight. Assign some loud sound. You have plenty of time to position yourself but only if you'll notice the warning immediately. It's also very hard to find a proper spot to stand on, so use some save if you have any doubt. Even after hundreds of tries I had may be 50% success rate for standing in the right place to avoid Valkyries. Thankfully with high enough gear (980 would be ideal) and good legendaries to survive and survival cooldown valkyr's damage is not fatal.
    3. Write macroses to repentance sygrin, kick caster, slow warrior, so you don't have to switch manually.
    4. Use AoE as much as possible. It doesn't matter which target you attack, they have shared health, but AoE is extremely effective.
    5. Don't forget about health orbs, collect them all.

    There's hardest part somewhere in the middle. Things go crazy and all abilities going at once. Survive it and it gets easier after that. After you killed first guy, it's pretty much win, but don't relax yet, there are few key mechanics still in place, keep executing them.

    Easiest? Havoc. It's not even funny how easy it is for DH. The ice wall is a non-mechanic, you always have beam and healing, you one-shot mobs on almost ANY gear lvl. You skip the sparkles phase by double dashing in a heart beat. At least on Ret you need to keep mechanics in mind.

    I beat this tower on my assassination rogue Monday night with only 877 ilvl with no legendaries my rogue is rynturai on Kil jaeden it is definitely the easiest tower my return pally was easier because u can just stun her when she tries to castblood of my father and wail on all 3
