Taking a Break

Hi everyone! Sorry for the silence, but I’m on a break from tanking and mythic raiding right now. The short version is that real life has gotten pretty busy lately (in a good way, mostly). You can the longish version in this twitter thread:

I haven’t quit WoW, I’ve just been playing casually as an elemental shaman on Doomhammer. And I’ve been enjoying all that flexibility quite a lot!

Anyway, if you’re on the lookout for quick and easy guides, here are some alternatives:

Initial Battle for Azeroth Warrior and Demon Hunter Impressions

These are my rough notes. I haven’t had a whole lot of time for the beta, just a few hours spread across weekends (planning a wedding is a real time suck). I don’t really feel like spending much time polishing them up into formal responses (I’d rather spend that time on the BfA guides), but I’d like to put them somewhere at least in this preliminary form.

I finally got around to updating almost all the bosses (I haven’t seen mythic Argus yet) with details for mythic! This has been a rough winter and busy spring for me, so I’m sorry it took so long! Hope it’s still helpful. :)

The second classĀ around took a lot less time, but was still pretty difficult! Where the DH challenge tested my timingsĀ and burst damage management, the monk challenge tested my situational awareness and self healing.

Mage Tower Tank Challenge | Kruul | The Highlord’s Return – Vengeance DH

After a truly embarrassing number of wipesĀ (let’s just say it rivals the number of attempts I put into endgame bosses back when I was a competitive raider), I finally got this down. I’m not a particularly skilled player, but I am diligent. As long as you’re one of those things, you can do it too!

Despite the amount of sleep this robbedĀ from me, I really enjoyed the challenge. I had to play around with a lot of different combinations and figure out what worked for me, a player with bad reactions and dps but a lot of patience. Everyone has a different strategy for these, but here’s what ended up working for me.
