It's not really enough, but it's already an improvement from not being considered at all :P


And some nice MM and SV buffs. Will be interesting to see how it maths out.

I guess I will have to buy some more 496 shieldwall stuff after the patch when it is discounted, unless the new VP "consolation" gear GC mentioned providing to non-raiders is more attractive.

May be worth going for the higher ilevel Neutral rep valor gear from Shado-Pan Assault. (The non-raider gear is at Revered on the new faction, again, and only ilevel 496.)

Actually only a 4% buff (a 5 percentpoint buff) (1.2/1.25 = .96 or 1.25/1.2 = 1.04(1666...))

But that with the buffs to single spells should be good enough currently.

Also, yay for MM buffs, not sure SV needed them, though it could be prudent (from a design standpoint) to not have the 50/50 dps split spec be the top spec, when tuning raid encounters, and have the more hunterfocused spec be at least as good. (Though honestly I don't think SV really needed a buff, though it was lower than BM it was within the margin, MM did need a buff though)

You keep saying that, but unless raidbots is completely broken, which is completely possible since the two options are Top 100 and everyone, it simply isn't the case that shadow is not competitive especially when compared to some other specs, like all specs of hunter.

Did they completely nuke the 476s for gold? Wont get you to 480 but might help.

4% is a decent buff. There really aren't any specs that are so far out of line that more than that would be warranted. Player perspective exaggerates the differences.

Well that looks much better than a couple ptr-patches before.

Yeah. Live SPriest is showing consistently middle of the pack among casters on overall, and 3rd best caster on the top 100. And on the overall chart Warlocks and Arcane seem to be something of an outlier.

Noticed that in the 2 tries we had... I was supposed to kite, but he targetted 2 diffrent random players twice :( I think its just a matter of getting the chaos down to a manageable level and kill him after that ^^

Garalon throw the debuff at the first player to hit him, if memory serves. I'd suggest timing the pull yourself and slapping people that get the debuff first on the wrist.

It's not really reliable to say "first to hit him", I've found it tends to be the one closest to him as he throws it out. Had melee hitting legs after I pulled him first before, and they were a few steps closer than me and would get it. Thus I always pull and run in (rather close) to the purple circle till he tosses it out, and then just strafe to a further distance allowing my co-tank to be in the cleave.

Yeah, it's nearest person on the pull. Our Rogue kept getting it at first. Have the raid stand back until it goes out.

Thats what we tried, and failed horribly at.

Ok, that sounds a bit logical ^^ We`ll go and try that next time :) Thanks for the info :D

Right. Probably because we always were careful to stay *way* back before the puller was done.

We did that as well. We'd all stand at the base of the stairs, the first kiter would step out and pull (in our case it was a hunter), then wait for the first pheromone pool to form before moving (disengage). Yeah, you get one puddle near the center of the room but it made really easy to know who had it and avoid LFR syndrome.

Haven't been here for a while (moving places meant internetlessness) -- but we finally downed Garalon (10N), then got the Wind Lord Mel'jarak kill almost immediately afterwards.

Doesn't look like the random amber bug will be too bad as soon as everyone gets used to playing as a construct, though 5.2 will hit before we down Shek'zeer.

More a success than a frustration (I think). I finally got the trash loot stamina trinket from MVG. In the penultimate ID before the patch.

I guess this should have gone in the frustrations thread after all.
