How're you guys handling Hero and burst on that fight?


We're heroing at the start at the moment since you can hero twice in that fight and we hero the next time after a return from the platforms with the buff. As for burst everyone tries to save one CD for the platforms at least.

For instance at the start I use Wings and Guardian for the Hero burn and save HA for cackle, if I'm not cackled first HA goes into DPSing the Sha/adds.

We're still playing with things, we have the fight mostly figured out, people just need to stop randomly going derp.


Mmkay. Sounds about like what we did, and we had a few sub-20% wipes, ourselves. We were holding all burst for Pagodas, though, unless you weren't Cackled at the start and had burn abilities that were on a 90s or less recharge. Trick we found was to make sure and hit Sha hard during Breath and, for me, Double Jeopardy to multi-DoT Sha and whichever add. Long Arm, also, seemed to really give me an edge on bouncing between adds and getting into safety cone before Breath.

Hmmmm.

Draenei Monks don't seem to use their weapon in their attack animations at all. D:

I thought all Monks used their weapon for the Jab attack?

I've been trying to do this myself.

Long Arm, also


Love Long Arm for this fight, more and more it's becoming my favorite Tier 1 Talent.

Yeah, I made the mistake of going back to PoJ early one this expansion, but the amount of movement has gotten me back to LAotL, now.

I use a macro to help with DubJep, for fights where I really want it. Press casts normally, use a modifier command to cast at focus. Works really great for moving between adds on opposite sides of the platform since you can't Judge the adds for LAotL.

Hm, first I've heard of this, could be interesting. It's by the same guy who does the fight scenes and choreography for RvB, which has gotten pretty good the last few seasons.

First thing I thought when I saw the hooded girl standing there at the start was Red Dorothy.

Video was cool, teen girls in short skirts always save the world. Loved the scythe gun.

It is. The last several seasons have deviated somewhat from what it originally was, as most such things do. It now has more of a plot, and is sometimes more serious, but it still has some pretty good humour, and some pretty great fight scenes at times.

So I just pugged a HoF and even though I was number two in DPS, I barely pulled 55k on recount which seems really low with my gear. Can someone check my gear and see if I'm doing something wrong?

Anyone still playing Guild Wars 2?

Add me: Christos de Soufre.3802 or Christia Dawnheart (on Blackgate)

Surprise, I play a Guardian. :)

I actually have a macro that lets me cast Judgment on whatever I have my mouse over instead of my actual target. Very useful for DubJep.

Wouldn't work for me. For some reason I pretty much have rightclick held down 100% of them time in combat.

Does seem a touch low, but the only thing I can find that might be causing that is you newest trinket; what did you have before picking up the Skullrender?

Haven't really touched it in months 'cause I got about twenty levels ahead of the wife and she's been slacking on getting caught up. LOL

And because she let a friend talk her into it, we foolishly rolled on a Euro server; can't friend/play NA can we?

I've considered that, but offensive mouseovers seem very twitchy and unreliable to me. I do that for taunts in tank specs, but that's about it.

55k over all, or on a specific fight?

Had the dragonling with hit/exp/haste cogs in them. Sick of getting gold from LFR MSV and Terrance and I'm not revered with Shado Pan (also not lucky with heroics).

Well we wiped on the first boss four times because no one can avoid the moving orbs from the second phase. I guess it's just that boss.

DPS is the least of the raids worries if they cant dodge attunements.

Funny, I spent about 45 mins wiping on that same boss last night, too, because people couldn't dodge Attenuate...Or even survive Force and Verve. LOL

But I was still putting up over 70k every wipe, usually being one of the last two to die. Only things I can think of are the trinket (which is better than the Dragonling), that there's a problem with your rotation, or that you're mishandling your CDs - none of which seem likely. What was your buff sheet like? Were you missing crit or AP?
