    • Defiler's End

      Valor upgrades definitely sped this one up, but we'd been making steady progress each night which made for a nice learning curve regardless. And I'm not going to complain about a little boost to get Archimonde down before the holidays wreak havoc on scheduling.


      Thanks to everyone for great play the last couple of months in particular, really picking up the overall level to close out the tier. Thanks especially to Shabadu and Heckbringer who were instrumental in getting us here, but sat out the big kill. After 11+ months of more or less continuous progression, looking forward to a leisurely farm schedule. Recruitment is pretty much frozen at this point, but exceptional applicants interested in joining for Legion should feel free to reach out, though we'll need to see who rerolls, leaves, returns, etc., going into the new expansion before taking any further steps.

      Final pull counts:

      • Archimonde - 157
      • Mannoroth - 175
      • Xhul'horac - 101
      • Velhari - 79
      • Zakuun - 29
      • Iskar - 4 (lol)
      • Socrethar - 30
      • Gorefiend - ~110
      • Kilrogg - 34
      • Council - 30
      • Kormrok - 39
      • Reaver - 37
      • Hellfire Assault - 31
      • Archimonde (Heroic) - 51
      • Blackhand (Mythic) - 339 [bit of context there - granted, lots of quick p1/transition wipes]

      12 down, one to go. Fun fight to progress on from start to finish, just making small adjustments and getting comfortable with the timings throughout. Now for fun times with the big guy.

      We're probably all set as far as recruitment goes at this late stage of the tier, but exceptional candidates are always welcome to apply.

    • Floor 2 (+Recruitment update)

      After Gorefiend, there wasn't really an specific single boss that felt like it merited a front-page update, but at this point, collectively the entire second floor of the Citadel seems like it does. Onwards to the roof, and Mannoroth. Time for the real challenge.

      With the arrival of fall and changing work/class schedules, we're looking to replace a mage and add one more ranged DPS to our lineup to give us some flexibility as we close out the tier.

      As usual, definitely felt like this should've been dead sooner, but I'll take it. Good to have the first major roadblock behind us, and now on to floor 2...

      Getting the ball rolling on Mythic - aka learning how to actually do the fights and their mechanics.

    • NEWS: Pros and Cons of Boosting Before Legion
      269663World of WarcraftMMOFeature With Legion on the horizon an agonizing question is on many player’s minds; should they use their level boost now or save it until the new expansion launches? A fairly new dilemma, players first faced this question in Warlords of Dreanor with a boost that instantly took a character of their choice to level 90. While it may seem like an easy choice to some, many found themselves totally flummoxed. Now, with one free level boost being given to every account, players face this perplexing decision again. With no redoes and the chance of a lot of potential regret, what is a World of Warcraft player to do? If you are one of the many struggling with this choice, here are some pros and cons of using your level 100 boost before Legion to help aid you in this mind-bending choice: Pros of Boosting Before Legion If you are considering boosting a character now, before Legion launches, there are plenty of good reasons why this option will pan out in your favor: Garrison Gold Gold is what makes World of Warcraft go around. Every player needs it, especially at the start of a new expansion. Leveling professions, repair costs, Auction House purchases, and more; gold is essential to start Legion off right. In Warlords of Draenor, the Garrison is a perpetual money tree. Even just completing missions with your Followers will line your pockets with easy gold. Boosting a character before Legion would give you one extra Garrison and the easy money that comes along with that. Just simply logging in on this freshly minted character once a day could help fill your pockets in preparation for the new expansion. Without a doubt, this potential source of income is an excellent reason to use your boost now, rather than later. Farming Potential Keeping with the theme of making gold, boosting your character before Legion definitely gives you extra farming potential. Whether it is pets from instances, Felblight, or just the standard herbs and ore; one more character able to complete these tasks can bring in a substantial amount of extra gold. Learn the Character If you are planning on boosting an unfamiliar character, boosting before Legion may be the best choice for you. No matter how similar the classes may seem, each plays in its own unique way. Boosting before the expansion can give you time to get to know your new character and become adept at playing it. Time to learn the ins and outs and intricacies of whichever class you choose.  This holds especially true if you are planning on making this freshly boosted character your new main. Assuming Legion keeps heading in the direction of Warlords, fights won’t be easy and knowing at least the very basics of your class will be essential. Even with the huge class changes incoming, a little getting to know you session could be a huge benefit. Cons of Boosting Before Legion Of course boosting before Legion isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There are some definite downfalls of taking this path: Buyer’s Remorse Even after you have thought, rethought, and thought again, you still might find that you just aren’t happy with your boost choice. Even if you pick what seems like the perfect race and class for you, it might not turn out to be as glorious as you had hoped. Just like when buying a new car, sometimes after you drive it home and the shine fades, you realize you may have made a mistake. Of course, buyer’s remorse could happen even after using your boost after Legion’s launch. However, the longer you have to think about the choice, the more likely you are to be making the right one. Remember, as things stand in game today, there is no re-dos in boosting; unless you want to spend some real life cash. Try Me System Helping to add to that buyer’s remorse is the new try-me system being added in Legion.  This new feature will allow a player to give the class of their choosing a try before they decide to use their boost on it. Details of this feature are still limited, however, from what we know it is slated to launch with the expansion or with a pre-patch leading up to it. While waiting may be difficult, this new system will prevent the player from making a mistake in which character they choose to boost and ensure the best possible results all around. With this brand new feature in mind, boosting before Legion becomes a risk that is questionable to take. Just a little waiting could save you a lot of regret. Class Changes Another excellent reason to consider waiting until after Legion to use your free level 100 boost is the upcoming class changes. No class is going to remain untouched and many classes will come out unrecognizable from what they were before. A great example of this is the Hunter who will have a specialization totally transformed from ranged to melee. While you can view the changes coming to your class well before Legion launches, you won’t know how it actually plays until the expansion arrives. You may find yourself very disappointed with the choice you have made after the various class changes. With a try-me feature before boosting also in the works, it seems prudent to wait things out, just in case. The Rundown Ultimately, there is no right answer here. There are pros and cons no matter what choice you decide to make. Each player needs to consider how the boost will work the best for them and proceed from there. While we can’t answer the difficult question of when to use your boost for you, hopefully the list above helps aid you in this difficult choice. No one likes post-boost regret.   View the full article
    • Concerning Mark of the Legion on Archimonde
      DBM can be configured to match bigwigs in assignment locations. neither currently assign soakers though. most often go to assigned spots of boss mod then use a diff aura just for assigning those who do NOT have debuffs to give them positions.   I think today I'll just add that second part to DBM too
    • Concerning Mark of the Legion on Archimonde
      I get a sense at this moment the best-enough solution is the legion mark helper addon unless one is the author of a special weakaura. I find most of them unreadable, making it hard to understand what they do so I'd better use a simple addon that has audio warnings on top anyway. If DBM did it in a complete way I might be able to use it though it might be an issue if a few players are on bigwigs without a strict policy to enforce dbm (it's not easy considering people are used to a whole tier to their own addon).
    • Concerning Mark of the Legion on Archimonde
      Auto assigning groups for soaking is not something DBM does. I've had many requests to add it so I probably will though. Right now it just assigns correct locations for debuffed players (which can also be changed by raid leader as well based on preference HOW they are assigned, to also be compatible with whatever strat you are using).
