Mmm wait, what are you saying, where's this "5% chance to miss taunts" coming from?

Eredar Twins. Sacrolash will crush you unless you are at 127.4% avoidance. I'm there now, 128% with scorpid/GoA, sitting at 24k health with an imp. Hopefully tanking them Sunday night.

Just be aware unless you're doing this reverse you won't get serpent sting/swarm/goa probably.

Be pretty crazy not to make it a priority in your strategy to get Scorpid Sting up if it actually works on a boss.

(By which I mean to imply that the reverse strat is better, not that you should suicide your hunters ;) )

Be pretty crazy to risk your hunters/shaman getting gibbed by shadow fiends.

The fight's positioning doesn't gel with the ability to keep those buffs up, or at least not most of them.

We are indeed learning this fight from the start in reverse order. Otherwise I'd have to gear a bit differently and most likely lose about 1200 health.

Reverse order is easier anyway imo

I think he's talking about http://www.wowhead.com/?spell=45769, which affects the boss's chance to hit, not the player's, so it shouldn't affect taunts at all.

Maintaining scorpid kills a hunter's dps. It's a debuff you can live without, most of the time. I typically ask our hunters to scorpid before a stomp on brut if they remember, but otherwise...

For Brut, that's fine because he doesn't crush...

Otherwise, few % to miss can help mitigation the shitloads of damage he does...

I agree, but we did it normal order first, and that's typically better if you're melee heavy to me.

Also helps if 15 people consistently do it one way if you're undergoing 'heavy recruitment.'

Is there any particular gearing or gemming needed to counteract this buff in order to be uncrushable again?


I'm not even allowed to go in till we kill illidan :(
