    Yeah, I thought he meant that you wait 2 minutes to reset some internal cooldown or something.

    Might just be me being unlucky, but I learned to never truly hug the pillars, always keep a distance. I.e. Line of sight her, but not being directly next to the pillar.. A bit more inconvenient, but a failed vision is a failed vision, even if it's Blizz' fault.

    Gift of the titan procs aren't guaranteed on kill while it's off cd. My 5 mask clear this week, I waited until the internal cd was finished before I started killing Rexxar, ended up killing all the boars and not getting it to proc once. Super annoying.

    I thought so too, then I began waiting out the gift of titan proc cd to be ready to pop, drop an orb infront of rexxar and pulled him in it, kill the first pigs til gift of the titan proc and then just go to town on him, quick memebeam to finish before gift proc runs out to clean up pigs if rexxar isn't dead by then.(Depends on gear and the amount of masks you put on)
    If you knew the candle was fire then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    It really depends so much on your class i guess, but have never really had any problems with him.

    As a fire mage i kill him in 7 seconds and thrall in about 15-20 so i think thrall is way harder.

    On my DH i also have no trouble with rexxar, can't kill him super fast, but still never really been close to dying or anything on him.

    On hunter it was easy enough as well, just aoe the boars down and you good.

    Those are the only classes i do 5 mask on so can't speak for the rest.

    I'd also like to say that you can avoid the boar attack by getting out of their line of sight in the small chambers they're in.

    It's not guaranteed. It's entirely possible to get no procs from boars or the bugs from corpses just before the hut. The chance is pretty high, but sometimes bad luck happens - and having zero procs makes Rexxar much more annoying to deal with.

    While we're on the topic of Rexxar, does anyone find the trash pack before his hut extremely hard? Not sanity damage but they just outright kill melt my health down on 5 masks. Like it's more dangerous than Rexxar himself.

    the eyes only do sanity drain if you look at them, so you should be good by just ignoring them and standing between the eyes and the boss.

    Shaw is sanity neutral apart from the passive drain and does no damage.

    It definitely helps a lot, but damage is still the only thing any of my characters have struggled with on 5mask for the past few weeks.

    5 masked it, not OP, just a matter of handling the mechanics. /shrug

    Well - he is still the only one I struggle on.

    Not everyone exposed to the new Corona Virus(SARS-CoV-2) will catch it, not everyone who catches it will develop the disease (COVID-19), not everyone who develops the disease will get sick, a small percentage of those who get sick will be very ill, and a small percentage of those who get very ill will die.

    To be honest... I've had the pillars fail to LoS Alleria's aoe explosion and instantly end my run, but I was on a ranged character (and I spam instant casts until I get the LoS error message). However, unless something is an easily repeatable bug that happens with regularity, it's not something to be concerned about. Regardless, if the eye goes into the pillar then readjust so the pillar is to your back: it'll only damage/drain you if you look at it and it has LoS on you. Can't do anything about evading bugs, which I've had happen a ton in Visions... same with combat bugs. If I gave up on working strats because of bugs, my cloak would be level 1.

    Pillar-humping is still an effective way for melee to have Alleria come to them if they find themselves struggling to keep reliable uptime on her and dealing with casts. I should still stress that it's not necessary, and I find it just as easy to killing Alleria 5mask on a melee as a ranged, even if I don't have immunities. Melee have the advantage of shorter duration interrupt CDs and being able to have full DPS on the move while dodging eyes/arrows, while ranged have the advantage of a little more DPS just before you have to LoS her explosion or make distance from her Chains abilitiy. I honestly find Visions much easier as melee than ranged, unless you're a pet class, as there's so much movement that needs to be done.

    In fact, what you should actually do is to DPS him slowly until he reaches 50% health. Why? Because he summons his boars at fixed intervals of his HP, up 50%, which is when all boars are out and he summons the fleshbeats rampage.

    DPS him slowly, focus the boars as they spawn, then nuke Rexxar once all four boars are dead. You should only ignore the boars and focus and nuke Rexxar outright if you get a Gift of the Titans proc from killing the first, maybe the second boar.
    It can be nuked, save drums for that particular fight and he's dead within 20seconds.

    The issue I have with Rexxar is just the amount of raw melee damage he does (on 5 masks). It's tricky because you're encouraged to take it slow for boars but you struggle to stay alive vs. his white hits if you're a squishy class with no sustain.

    Obviously if you have self healing or you're wearing plate it's a lot easier.

    Any tips?
    you literally have an entire city (SW) which is too powerful.

    In OG you have 1 single boss that needs attention and proper gameplay.

    I think we can all agree that you should just learn to play rexxar (it's not a nuke fest if you simply ST the boars if they spawn because then they spawn 1-1-2 so you really only have to burst DP one in that entire fight) instad of demanding unneccesary nerfs

    Mhm i could swear titan gift proccs are guaranteed when they are off cd. atleast whenever i wait also for example also in front of alleria and kill the lvl 1 rat i always get it.
