    My shadow priest currently has an ilvl around 400 for extra challenge ^^
    Haven't done the cloak questline on her yet.

I honestly never struggle to keep them around which is why I find it weird that others are.
    They spawn randomly, with random colors and you're never guaranteed to get some nice chain of buffs going. Just like you can get several +sanity potions in a row, while another run will have them stuffed in some dark corner you don't normally go into.

    Well you can still try to pick them up and if you think they might run out at a dangerous point, click them off yourself before that happens.

    I didn't complete a lost area solo before i hit cloak 9 with much the same level of gear in balance druid spec (resto main).
    If you knew the candle was fire then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    Soo.. Spend a week to get most essences as rank 3 on your alts? What's the issue?

    Stormwind Week means Skip week as far as 3+ masked are concerned. Stormwind is just anti-fun.

    Hmm, right, Iris 3 in a week, Conflict and Strife r3 in a week, Breath R3 in a week, Lucid R3 in a week, yes, indeed. Blood of the Enemy R3 in a week absolutely possible if you're grinding battlegrounds non stop for 8 hours a day. Fun? Fucking hell no.

    Does clicking them off to avoid the bad side effects really work? oô
    That'd be kinda strange since they also get triggered when exiting the vision.

    Isn't this more of a "you'll still puke your guts out, but at least it won't happen during combat/inside -200sanity void zone"?

    And I ain't gettin much stronger than 472, remember, no titanforging.

    Ah, reading over Nymrohd's post again this interpretation makes sense.

    The remaining two cloak upgrades will cut down sanity loss by one third compared to now though, so at lvl 15 it will get significantly easier (no faceroll though, sure).
    It will become easy enough that I'll probably farm one vision per week for the free 470.

    Its now even more crystal clear that SW sucks massive balls. I probably can clear OG twice as fast as SW.

    Still not loving them. I'm haven't even tried a multi mask run as I have absolutely no compulsion to do so. Sure it's more challenging and I doff my call to those who've find it, but I really can't be bothered, I get no personal satisfaction and the extrinsic rewards are not interesting enough to make me want to run it at a higher level.

    I really wouldn't care if the cloak upgrades weren't tied to the system, I'm okay ignoring stuff that I don't like (case in point, not done a bg in months, haven't done arena in years) but the cloak upgrade is a bit too good to ignore (and no, that didn't contradict what I said - the rewards don't make me want to run it on a higher difficulty. But I will skeepwalk collecting the pages).

    I'd have quit at rank 12 if they hadn't nerfed how much the quests would need. Guess I'll do up to 15 now. Though I'll probably wait until it's org to get rank 15 as it's quicker.

    I did Orgrimmar 5masks solo as a mage, there are 2-3 good and easy skips there. Now gathering some coalescing visions to run SW a few runs in a row to do 5masks solo there as well. After I've gotten my Faceless title I guess it will become some boring routine.

    Attained by 0% of profiles. I don't think you'll need to worry that everyone and their mothers will be able to solo 5 mask clear very soon.
    just you wait, im clearing+5 with 1 orb unused now as a mage (hardly the best class compared to insanely overpowered meles). and the cloak upgrades will keep coming...
    None of us really changes over time. We only become more fully what we are.

    iris 2 does the same damage as iris 3.
    you 100% don't need rank 3 essences to do content. I mean *you* may, but you 100% don't need them

    No it doesn't avoid the effect but you can control when it happens.

    Well cloak upgrades makes a huge difference. Also corruptions.

    If the feature was only about mechanical skill, it would become boring quite fast for me. I appreciate the fact that I'm learning something every time I run a Vision.



    That's why I'm not worried about difficulty: gear doesn't completely trivialize the Visions. I've seen some of the best players in the world (Rogerbrown, Zmok) fail their 5 masks runs despite their gear and their skill. Things can go south pretty quickly.

    However, I wish Stormwind was less annoying: the corrupted areas are an unnecessary waste of time (having to click on 8 spread out items, yikes), the spawns in the Umbric zone put the player in combat (especially annoying with Leaden foot) and Alleria is a fucking bitch for melee players. So much downtime.
    Never understood this, but where does all the downtime on Alleria come from? On Thrall there is virtually zero, so I’m not debating that issue. With Alleria however, you can knock the bombs away, you can dodge darkened sky, and you can stay on her until almost the full cast of Void Eruption until you need to LoS. The Chains are really the only thing that causes downtime to a big extent.
    Also, if you have immunities or big damage reductions you can just take the hit from Eruption and then cancel your thing if you need to and get right back on damaging her.
    It just seems like people act like theirs 2 1/2 minutes in a 3 minute fight (not even that really) where you do nothing.

    You're conveniently forgetting the fact that she's ranged, you still need to avoid the eye, dodging Darkened Sky is harder than Thrall's frontal, kicking the bombs still takes time/doesn't always work perfectly and she can cast Polymorph through LoS after you try to position the eye. The only downtime on Thrall is when he starts with middle eruption and maybe 2 seconds of Hopelessness. Add Burning Bridge to that and it gets rather crowded.
