Blackwing Descent – Elevator Boss Stats

Bam !

Elevator Boss is indeed one of the hardest bosses that ppl just take for granted that they can faceroll when clearly they cant.

I guarantee there is at least 2 deaths per raid on the Ele Boss !

Numerous Guides to defeat this boss are available on various forums.  Beware of Elevator Boss in Hard Mode – aka the Life Gripping Priests – one minute youre running in one direction stepping off the elevator – the next- bam! youre on your way back up to the top.

Hardmode at its finest. 

There are various achievments assiciated with the boss – such as Nitro Boots + Cloak Parachute + Dodging the Life gripping Priest as well as hoping the Nitro Boots wont Leak and kill you on your way to Chimaerons room.

Oh the Joy – nice to see once again Blizz have a sence of humor.

ciao for now !

4.1 The Bugs, The DC’s and … ZG

Zul Gurub…what the heck is up with that place…  2 hours to complete the dungeon ….. really ?

346 ilvl required to get into either ZG or ZA and believe me for ZG you will need a degree in how to move out of bad, so so much bad that can kill you.   I consider myself to be a well geared disco priest who does know how to move but OMG…lost count of the number of times we wiped on Venoxis.   [it has since been hotfixed before anyone calls noob]

Lots of other wierd bugs with ground effect spells such as HW:Sanctuary, Efflorecence, Healing Rain and PW:Barrier.  Last night we were unable to overlap any of the healing circles nor cast them on an uneven surface.  The mages, hunters and druids were also experiencing similar ‘bugs’ with targeted spells such as treants.  My ticket to a GM was answered today and they are ‘ looking into it’ ….. GM’s are strange ppl… he even told me a ‘joke’ …..

Lots of DC’s too..which kindly reset an entire dungeon for us several times not to mention the DC at Halfus which kicked us all out of raid group and respawned all the trash !!!!!  /grrrrr

Anyway, enough blah from me for now, I will leave you with a screeny of one of our hunters stuck in the doorway to BWD….. [literally stuck in the skulls mouth]….

Ciao for now.

Chimaeron Heroic 25: DONE

/cheer

We slayed that 2 headed dragon thingy last night ! After a while of relentless practice and many coffees we finally downed him in almost flawless style.

The use of cooldowns such as Lay on Hands, and Guardian Spirit for the Tanks who are taking Double Strike is a must here ! or 1 shots will happen.  Also the much needed raid healing cooldowns like Divine Hymn, Tranquility & PW:Barrier for during Feud are priceless. Having me healing as Discipline [what else?] enabled me to bubble bot in the last phase.

One major key to sucess here has to be communication, knowledge and understanding.  If you dont have this – you are fighting blind.  Your tanks need to be able to tell the healers when they need extra healing, if they accidently have a stack or two of break etc… it all helps.

Anyway heres the video – Frapsed by our very own Mage ‘Peedyweedy’ [im the pink dot on the left]

After the shield nerf…

Well – thus far no U turn by Blizz on the PW:S mana increase…I hope they are thinking what they can do to fix the mess ! and stop our holy friends from bubble botting !

A more constructive fix for PW:S would be revert the mana cost and to not allow Weakened Soul to be active on any more than 5 targets at a time. This would stop the shield spam, keeping the spec viable for 5/10/25man and not nerfing the heck out of rapture. Also Strength of Soul talent becomes most useful – would make u use ur heals to reduce a WS on a target allowing u to put out another shield.

Other suggestions:

1: We cant spam shields – therefore remove Soul Warding talent completely.

2: Buff Rapture to maby 8%mana return [im shite at math so this is basically picking a figure from the sky that looks appealing!]

3: Grace application with PoH – this would be a wonderful change to support our raid healing ability without having to buff the PoH spell itself.

4: Auto DA procs from PoM

5: Divine Aegis – increase duration to 15secs and make them shinier

6: Inner Focus – keep this talent as is – but make the ‘next cast with IF an instant cast’ [imagine an insta cast PoH on high mobility encounters]

Anyway – ive been looking into talents….for the moment im going to drop Soul Warding – and move 2 points into veiled shadows for a 4min cd on shadowfiend…. most encounters you could push out 2 fiends easily within 4mins.

I think a lot of Disc priests will either respec Holy or – go back to PoH spam. For the cost of 1 PW:S you can cast [almost 2] PoH which will DA bubble upto 5 ppl ! kinda makes sence to PoH spam instead.

Im going to steer clear of respeccing my holy offspec to the bubble bot – quite frankly – although semi viable – its far from ideal and far from what Holy is all about – but the fact some ppl are doing it is a good thing – it will show Blizz just how messed up their nerf-fix’s are.

Hotfix Woes

Lifebound Alchemist Stone can no longer be disenchanted, ouch.

  • Im not an enchanter myself but im sure a lot of ppl were profiting from farming the mats for the stone and having their Alchemy/Enchanting buddy make then DE the stone for the crystal…. im so glad I had my enchants done before this hotfix.  The power torrent and peerless stats would have cost over 10k on my sever had I needed to buy the mats from the overpriced AH.

Wouldnt it be great if Blizz made it so we could have an enchanter DE our soulbound items via the trade window… kinda how we have gear enchanted….but disenchanted...yea not gonna happen is it..
