Re: Sha of Fear

1.) I'm always behind the boss, if I'm dpsing it. It takes 5 seconds to get in front of the boss & avoid fear then go back, correct. So why not use tiger's fury then and shred 100% of the time? 2.) So if it sucks, just pick another talent? /shrug. You're not really getting that much more of a benefi...

Re: @Stenhaldi

I'm not sure about you, but I can't come close to getting in a shred every 2 seconds with normal energy regen, so in theory there has to be a limit to the amount we can extend the rip for, even with the UV bug.

Re: Wind Lord Mel'Jarak

It really depends on your strat. For example, my guild now basically single targets the boss to 80% then starts aoe (1 of each add type cc'd), so we get 3 back to back recklessness and burn him from 75% to 0 in those 90 seconds. I wouldn't recommend NV there. On our first kill, we cc'ed 0/1/2 so had...

Technically, I'd say heroic Sha was the hardest, but if you mean of the various random things you have to do, we spent over an hour trying to get all 25 people to do the emperor dance correctly, haha.

Re: Problem with Shifting!

You know how your healing touch macro that never takes you out of catform sets AutoUnshift to 0, then back to 1? I think chances are your cvar is set to 0 now through a macro or addon. I'm not sure of the exact wording, but try typing "/console AutoUnshift 1" into your chat and see if it starts work...

Re: Garalon

As mentioned previously, Garalon legs are less an opportunity for you to maximize your personal dps, but rather a resource to be used to meet the enrage timer for the fight.

Re: Question Regarding DoC & Soul of the forest

Mr. Robot is wrong. Agility is king - every single gem socket you have should contain agility in some form. Some socket bonuses are small enough (eg 60 crit) to ignore and go straight agility. Always agility. Regarding the original question, go soul of the forest. I've tried incarnation on the fight...

Hotw for any progression fight, doubly so for Tsulong. Do 15 mil damage night phase then 20 mil healing day phase. That one talent literally brings more to the fight than an entire pure dps.

Re: About our top-tier talent... (again)

I still use HoTW on most of the fights out there, and I recommend you should too. When you're looking at a trial, unless his/her dps is ridiculously low, the things that stick out most in your head are the number of times they've done something stupid and it's far far easier to not do something stup...

Re: Experimental simulationcraft script

Ok, so heroic wind lord basically has 7 targets up the entire time you're aoeing. I use HoTW for the fight as hurricane is still ridiculous, and incarnation for this fight specifically (because of the 600% burst) but SoTF normally over FoN. Swipe vs rake: With 7 targets, it was really a tossup as to...

Hence, napkin math, heh. I also ignored the fact that swipe costs 10 more energy than rake, which balances out a lot of the rake drawbacks. On a fight like wind lord though where rake is definitely going to have time to tick, I think it's going to be better dps as long as you can track which adds ha...

Re: Experimental simulationcraft script

Any thoughts on optimizing AoE rotation especially with DoC? Currently most guides tell to keep Trash up, Swipe for Combopoints and spend them on SR upkeep, Rip or FB. These work with short burst AoE parts, but how does it work over a few minutes? Like on Wind Lord Mel'Jarak boss with quite tight e...

More specifically, a byproduct of world of logs finally recognizing heroic mode encounters. Previously it just lumped them all together, so 25N stone guards was basically all 25H logs.

Re: challenge modes

I'd recommend HoTW for challenge modes. There are just too many packs that are melee unfriendly and hurricane is just too ridiculous of an aoe to not use whenever you can. I've got no experience with respeccing on the fly, but there's really no reason to not keep HoTW running the entire time. You do...

It's hard to show with logs as the damage just keeps on ticking, as I said, and there is no "death" line for each charge that I could tell.

Re: Elegon The thing with energy charges is that any dots on them keep on ticking on the dead mob and still counts for damage until the next wave is spawned.

Re: Elegon

If you're progressing on this fight, HoTW is still king, especially for 10m. 1.) You pop it during the first phase 2 (maybe on 3rd wave of charges.) In 10m heroic, charges have 740k hp. That's roughly 4 wraths, so it'll take you about 7.5 seconds to kill a spark, meaning that you should be able to s...
