On July 14th here is the hot fix applied to Rageface: "Successful attacks on Rageface will now always be critical strikes while he is channeling Face Rage."Orka wrote:Was Rageface patched?
It's rough, but usually you can time it so it's not a huge dps loss. Typically in my raid on heroic Beth'tilac I'm told to tranq roughly around 20%. So knowing this I make sure to get a fully refreshed set of bleeds on the boss (using rake and then FB to make sure I deplete my energy) to get those ticking the entire time I'm tranqing and I'm regening some energy (granted I'm only 2/3 Furor so it will only go to 70 but I'm not sure I would get all the way to 100 while casting anyway). So at that point I'm only losing some melee swings and not much in the way of an opportunity cost for yellow attacks since most of the energy will be regening.Orka wrote:This is an interesting concern I was having about NI and Tranquility. Fights like Shannox and Beth'tilac imply very high raid damage acting as a soft enrage, where it's usually during the last few percents that healing gets really hard. During this critical period, should we focus on downing the boss as fast as possible, or should we stop dpsing and cast Tranquility? Is it worth dealing 0dps at this dramatic time?
But the heal itself can be pretty useful. I can easily get 200,000 healing done in the few seconds it takes to cast. May not seem like much to a 25 man raid, but it's useful.
Edit: I used to rage when having to brez/tranq because of 4T11, but that's gone now. So happy.
