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 !

Disc @ 4.1 PTR Changes [aka Nerfs]

* Ouch * That Nerf hurt !
x Power Word: Barrier‘s cooldown has been increased to 3 minutes, up from 2, and its effect has been reduced to 25%, down from 30%. [O M G….. im lost for words….. ‘WTF’ dosent quite cut it to be honest]

/cry


Other Changes:

Inner Will and Inner Fire now last until canceled. [because it was SO hard to click the button every 30 minutes !]
It is now possible to remove Weakened Soul effects that were a result of another priest’s Power Word: Shield through Strength of Soul. [Handy if more that 1 Disc Priest in your Raid – or a bubble happy Holy Priest !]


…. ok so it is only ‘PTR’ and subject to several changes between now and release [thankfully] but come on Blizz – the Disc priest community are still sore over the PW:S mana increase and now you increase our Barrier’s cooldown !!?? Why ?!?

Many Disc Priests will be forced to respec to Holy who right now look to come to 4.1 in one piece and still playable.

Outraged – this has prompted me to download the current PTR and copy my beloved heartbroken Disc Priest to Brill EU….so ANY future change I can have a look at straight away. [waits for new spells and buffs !!]

Im sure Blizz [hopefully] reads the community forums and probably visits places like MMO – tbh the QQ is flooding everywhere so it isnt going to be hard for Blizz to miss it.


My 4.1 Wish List

  • Prayer of Healing to not only auto Proc Divine Aegis but to apply 1 x stack of Grace on each target.
  • Inner Focus – 45 sec cooldown -In addition to its current effects –  Make spells not only mana free but instant cast.
  • *New Spell* – Empowered Penance: A burst of Holy Energy fires at your target and the 4 nearest lowest Health targets healing all 5 targets for [no more than 10k] 20 sec cd.  To look like Penance – but only 1 burst not 3 and to only apply 1 stack of Grace per target.
  • More Divine Aegis auto procs to make good use of our ‘mastery’ and steer us further away from PW:S spamage.

Not asking for much ? …anyway – see you on Brill !

Ciao for now.

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.

How To [not] Holy – Chimaeron: Blackwing Descent

This encounter has made me enjoy Holy Spec [did I say that out loud !?!?] Its such a pig to heal – and way easier to respec Holy than try spamming as Disc.

We [my guild] have downed Chimaeron several times both in 10 & 25man.  Last night – we nuked him as a 25man team.

Some co-ordination with Lightwells/Healthstones/Tranquilitys/Divine Hymns and praying we sucessfully made it thru 3 Feud phases before hitting the final phase where Chimaeron has no way of being taunted and keeps the DPS screaming in panic if they happen to be top on aggro lol.

Kite more damnit !! damn warlocks – learn to DoT n Run.. anyway – Healers were throwing in some Smites, DoTs and Holy Fires… 100k left on the boss… im at about 9k health – In my infinate wisdom as i was pretty much OOM by this point I decided to hit Shadow Word: Death… and killed myself LOL…yea…not funny…dont do that – makes you look stoopid.  [im sure at some point youve all SW:D’d yourselves ?]

Anyway – Lightwell owns on Chimaeron encounter… heres a snapshot of my recount of healing done:

Not bad for mainspec Disco.

So..yea..another fail I can add to my ‘Inner Focus’ of  LOL section.

Ciao for now x
