Yeah, it blows, even with the little self healing. Congrats to you though!

I would be willing to team up with you there Eostre. Drist#1903. It is phased so hopefully you're on it also.

I've tried this numerous times and just cant seem to get it. Have come pretty close but have ended up eating it every single time and just want to get this completed.

I just got him down. I'm assassination. I blew CDs at the beginning, opened with Cheap Shot. I used Shuriken Toss on the first set of adds and then just ignored the last. If you vanish the adds will run to the center. I only kept Recoup up during adds. So, I vanished, outran the Prince, waited for my CDs, then put him in at the edge of the arena, Cheap Shot (again), blew CDS, popped Evasion when the adds got to me, and that's basically it. It's still a pain in the rear, but it can be done if you just keep pressure on him. I have my four piece + Shadow Blades + Dispatch Spam while he's stunned and I'm behind him. Worked for me, but I wouldn't want to do it again. Shuriken Toss is key for this.

I just did this step this morning and it was pretty rough. Shuriken Toss while useful wasn't at least for me as key as I thought it would be. My first couple of attempts I tried to burn the oozes with shuriken toss but it just didn't seem to kill them quick enough. What seemed to work for me was to stay just outside of their melee range and spam fan of knives on them while keeping some energy pooled for mirrors. After I'd get most of the oozes and mirrors down that was my burn phase. Its tricky but doable. It reminded me of the challenge the cata rogue legendary mini bosses posed.

Oh yeah one other thing if you spot the Wrathion thats not translucent thats the real one hit that one and the copies go away. Its sometimes hard to spot so if that happens just spam fan of knives.

I remember doing the solo bosses for my Fangs, they didn't frustrate me anywhere near this bad, lol. Thanks for the tips, I'll try them out!

Though it took a couple of attempts (and yes I started getting frustrated), I was able to defeat him...... as sub; I pulled off enough damage to kill him off just before he did his first aoe phase.

I did not pull back to kite on this attempt, just used Defensive cds.

This quest is impossible for fury warriors who have no self healing.

Any tips you can give to a fury war doing this?

I have tried over 30+ times and the best i could manage was him down to 30% before the oozes spawned at the same time as the images.

I am using flasks, pots, the celestial token, and food buffs.

Is it just a matter of me having a low ilvl? was this intended to be completed with patch 5.4 ilvl garrosh gear? warriors are not that great at self healing as other classes.

Also I was not able to find any video regarding the melee challenge, any assistance would be appreciated.


Only tip I can offer is to do the Prot Challenge...Warriors, Fury especially, do not do enough self heals to beat the adds down. The Prot Challenge is even tough for Warriors because of Wrathions low health pool and no matter how fast you taunt, he still ends up taking a hit. However, the Prot Challenge is earsier than the DPS Challenge becuase if you take Second Wind, Deathwing does not have enough burst to take you out, unless you are standing in stuff and not interrupting.

Hope it helps!

Jay, you seem to be in the same progression as I am...Really think about taking the tank Challenge instead. You'll still get to choose the DPS cape.

Because Warriors have less than optimal self heals, as I mentioned above, take Second Wind. Deathwing doesn't have the burst to take you out, unless you're standing in stuff and missing interrupts.

Phase 2, put one of your longer duration banners in the line of fire to Wrathion to intercept the adds coming in to hit him. Use cooldowns like Shield Wall and Last Stand to survive intercepting the others. Bandage Wrathion when the opportunity presents itself. After 2 full phases, you should be good to go. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

I know this isnt the thread for the Tank Challenge...just trying to help a fellow warrior.

I'm fury but having same problem, adds are a huge problem. What I've been trying to do is stack avatar/bladestorm to burn adds when they first pop, but that screws me when they respawn.
