How are you guys doing?


Kalecgos saved.

Just wore BT neck and some wore the cloak as far as special gear.

Obviously every one wore their stam gear and I followed suit and wore nearly max stam.

Someone apparently thinks the buff will go away after phase3

no source given, so who knows if it's true.

My point is that Blizzard wanted to increase the overall boss damage for the instance without increasing the "worst case" damage. Statements like their dislike of the current crushing blow mechanics and how they cause "unfair" instant deaths seem to support that. It doesn't change the fact that itemization should allow us to bring the overall damage down while bringing our effective health up. If anything, it allows them to put more avoidance on gear, since without that debuff avoidance tanks will be getting to the point where they take rediculously infrequent hits if they continue to itemize dodge. Which will make Black Temple very interesting after SPlat is on farm...

That brings up my major point of contention. If blizzard wants to apply this buff to everything and essentially negate 25% of my avoidance, go ahead. There are things I can do and gear I can change to get higher levels of avoidance, but that means that I'm going to have nearly two different sets of gear, one for mobs that beat the crap out of me in sunwell, and one for mobs in every other instance in the game that have reasonable attack tables.

It happens to fail the RD if you happen to click RD exactly while he's casting shadowbolts at someone else.

Holding aggro is hard since kalecgos does a decent DPS, you have to go "all out" in order to not get it stolen

Make sure you watch for Kalecgos to fall flat on his ass before you taunt. He's got enough health to soak a few of those knockdowns, but if you take a knockdown right after he turns to you it'll prevent you from doing anything to generate threat until taunt fades.

kalec makes a metric fuckton of threat. you pretty muvh have to go balls out on the demon to hold it.

and rd was working just fine for me all night, even targeting the demon.

The good news on the Kalec threat front though is that if you just stop building threat for about 3-5 seconds, he'll take the demon back... which gets to be very handy when suddenly you're down to one healer in the shadow realm.

fucks sake we spent 7 days of raids wiping on him. Ever since 2.4 went live.

Tanks dropping like a sack of shit !!

If only I could have read some of the stuff the guys from here had observed.

http://wowwebstats.com/ytcxnwpzovci5
http://wowwebstats.com/zapireb2xmk1s
http://wowwebstats.com/kplfgsmrehtha

we were having huge fights on offy chat thoughout 5 nights now due to healers simply unable to keep us up.

I respecced healing and put my old gear on to compensate for leaving guildmembers and insults going on cause obviously healers couldn't keep stuff alive - even as far as wanting to recruit 2 more warrior tanks because the hybrids die more often (warrior imp def stance + spellwarding > all blagh blagh)

Image


We had 3 guilds passing us now ruining our server 1st and reputation just due to us being so damn occupied discussing tactics, respeccing, regearing, guildkicking, arguing.

He dies tomorrow.

Actually if tanks arne't in full t6-ish gear, yes, the demon and dragon hit like fucking trucks. The first time we tried we didn't expect so much damage, all the tanks including myself basically dropped like leaves as soon as the demon was taunted.

With Ironshields and proper attention from healers, things are going quite better now.

It seems Sunwell Radiance no longer effects the blood elf trash packs; we were dodging them normally last night. The robots and Kalecgos are still benefitting from the hyper accuracy, unfortunately. I assume Brutallus and Felmyst are as well, but an offline tank prevented us from doing anything beyond Kalecgos last night.

Happy Happy Happy


Details:

I tanked with 150arcane resistance by 20.9k HP Buffed
I had this following avoidance:

Dodge: 25.6%
Parry: 17.9%
Block 25.1%

Ironshields every second => 22k armor, Once in the fight I had a fast switch with bubble and once the arcane resistances faded from 8stacks to 0. I also tanked the Enrage until 1% where I died but the Boss was already fucked up !!!!


I doned exactly same, tanked him with no Switches. I got my bracers too, but missed juggernaut legguards, some holy pala taked it :(
