Re: WoWzers!

Iirc, each dps needs to pull at least 7k to beat the enrage. Or so I was told. I've never actually been there in 25 man. Its something like 7500 actually for 25 man. If your top dps are only doing 8k its almost certainly not going to work. Certain classes like Elemental shaman will have trouble hit...

Re: WoWzers!

Gah, we're struggling with Fester 25 at the mo. The problem is a combination of occasional server lag, the odd noob not moving with the spore and DPS slacking. We've got him to 30% a couple of times and then all hell breaks loose but looking at the enrage timer I don't think the DPS is pushing hard ...

We used our 10 attempts last week without downing him on 10man but he's gonna be fun to get this week. 25man side we've got Rotgut and begun working on Fester. The DPS re...

Re: WoWzers!

Cat form DPS is really just about prioritising your spells. The Priority that I use is: Savage Roar > Mangle > Rake > Rip > Shred > Ferocious Bite Ideally you want to always want Savage Roar, Rake, Rip an Mangle up. I typically open with a Mangle + Rake which gives me a minimum of 3 Combo Points som...

Re: WoWzers!

FoS, do you do 10 or 25 man progression primarily? The Saurfang fight is really easy mechanics wise. Those marks just create trouble for the healers, and we can't let anyone die because Saurfang gets 5% health back from it. If 2 people go down, it's a wipe, not sure if you can save it if only one g...

One thing we found helps a lot is that you can preload people into a single demolisher (ie one demolisher holding 3 people) and just leave one motorcycle empty. This allows one demolisher to always be damaging FL and picking up Pyrite while the other one launches someone but still has someone to pi...

Re: WoWzers!

IMO, a simulator that tells you to go for a different stat rather then Hit should be ignored until you reach the point where you're capped. It's only a simualtion of the games mechanics not a real representation of them. Actually a mathematical simulation/calculator will be more accurate than your ...

Hit is always the first stat you cap for Raiding, regardless of what you play. Well while I am not certain of all classes I KNOW this is not true for feral druids, so the statement is not correct. Any of the druid simulators out there or spreadsheets will show that you get more dps by say gemming f...
