it is amazing what you can do when you can solo the warbringers

Not only that, but I have more trade skill materials that I could ever use from the large loot bags.


I wish I could solo the warbringers.. sigh... kiting skills need work. (Hoping my lock will be able to do it).

Our warlocks just send in the Voidwalker and let it/him tank.

I've seen a lock do the portal dance as well to kite them.

Don't the Voidwalkers get stomped?... hunter pets sure do, either by the AOE or the Spirits.

I could solo the warbringers (before the fear change...I got a direhorn mount the day before they did it and i kind of stopped chasing them after that)

It would just take...About 40 minutes or more i think <.<

Scouts are still good enough for rep farming


Anyway

Nope!

Turn off Thunderstomp autocast on the pet.
Keep Mend Pet up on the pet.
When the Spirit spawns it may attack your pet once but heal aggro from Mend Pet will send it to you.
Lay down an Ice Trap and you're good to go as the spirit will usually despawn before it gets to you,especially if you're survival because of the root.

Also hunter pets take 90% reduced damage from the AoE, not sure how it is hurting yours.
We live in a society where people born on third base constantly try to steal second, yet we expect people born with two strikes against them to hit a homerun on the first pitch.

The Thunderstomp is the key thing since if the spirit gets caught in a stomp it'll rock your pet. Also if you're survival don't keep an ice trap near the scout as if the spirit gets rooted it may turn to your pet and kill it.

I was killing scouts in a mix of 450 PvP gear and a few 463 blues on my hunter in under 5 minutes. Now that I did one LFR lockout and got much better geared I can knock them down much much faster.

The issue I usually find is that the pet gets gibbed when I'm either running from the lava bombs, or dealing with the bugs. I'll admit I'm not great at kiting.

Also I don't see how it's worth it if turns into a 40-min fight, you could farm a lot of other stuff in that time.

So, do the voidwalkers fare better?

Scouts aren't the issue, but that's an interesting thought on Thunderstomp.

Still, 30 min + with a Warbringer doesn't seem worth it, too many hassles. Now if the Voidwalkers do better....

Spec Barrage for the bugs.

Goodbye BM.

They just nerfed the core talent:

Exotic Beasts now reduces the cooldown of your Pet Special Abilities by 1%, down from 30%.


And buffed the other specs:

Rabid now has a 1.5 min cooldown, down from 2 min.


Since SV was catching BM anyway, this will push it ahead for sure.

Warbringers have around 20m hp, for it to take 30mins you'd have to be doing 10k dps.
