Heroic BM, easy?

Postby Makaijin » Tue Jan 29, 2008 6:18 am

Last night, I ran heroic BM for the first time ever. I was always reluctant to try this as everyone says it's the hardest 5 man there is. After an heroic SP run, our fury warrior in the group suggested we do heroic BM. According to him it's the most easy 20 minute 3 badge run you can ever do. Everyone else was hesitant at first, but after some convincing by the warrior, we said "we're bored, lets try it!"

The tactic was, i tanked the elite and pickup adds with my consecrate. All dps proceeded to nuke the elite first, when it's down we would aoe down the adds. After the first boss, everyone asked if this was heroic at all. Long story short, after we cleared the place, our druid healer only drank 5 times, we had 35 mins remaining on our PW:F and GotW buffs with no wipe. Like the warrio said, an easy 3 badges.

What I would like to know is, was it recently nerfed, or was it this easy in the first place?

The issue with BM is that the whole group needs to be on the ball. If the healer fails, you die. If you fail, you lose aggro or die, if your dpsers fail, you get overwhelmed and die.

Basically, if anyone fails, you die.
If your group puts out enough dps to kill the rift lord while ignoring the adds, the better. Seems to be the easiest way. Usually I assign one of the dpsers to aoe them down while I hold them. Shaman and Fury warriors enjoy this a lot.

I can't really comment on the difficulty as I outgeared it when I did it for the first time.

However, we usually stick one dps to 'focus' on the adds, but I am tanking everything. Basically, I run it like it's normal and collect the goods. :D

Properly geared for BM heroic = t4ish, more is outgearing.

In theory, you need a good healer, good tank, and good DPS. That's all. You need 0 CC so you can abuse of dps warriors and such. I'd strongly recommend a melee demolition party.
