    • Forum Rules (Updated 3/22/14)   07/14/10

      Welcome to the Elitist Jerks forums, a WoW discussion forum targeted towards topics regarding high-end raiding and analysis of game mechanics. We ask you to take a few minutes to read the following before making use of these forums.   First, a point of clarification. The name of these forums is not intended ironically; we have high standards for the discussion that occurs herein, and we're quite unapologetic about it. If you feel our rules are stupid or arbitrary, we don't really care. If you don't wish to follow them, you're welcome to return to the official Blizzard forums.   Following is a brief listing of our forum rules; note that it is by no means exhaustive, as in our experience people are quite innovative in finding new ways to be stupid. These are simply a set of guidelines to get you started in the right direction. If you follow them, you will generally do fine here; however, if you concoct some creative new form of stupidity, our moderators feel no need to restrain themselves in letting you know. All posters are to make an effort to communicate clearly. In particular, all posts should be made in a reasonable approximation of proper English. We realize that a significant number of you are not native speakers, and we do not expect perfection: merely effort. Please obey basic rules of capitalization and punctuation, avoid chatroom abbreviations ("lol", "imo", "u", and the like), and pay at least minimal attention to sentence and paragraph structure. This includes not starting a new paragraph for each sentence. All opinions should be stated as succinctly as possible. Do not make multiple consecutive posts; rather, multi-quote and include all your ideas in a single post. Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point. Do not break a single quoted reply into multiple blocks; doing so needlessly lengthens your post without aiding its readability. And don't provide unnecessary backstory: if it isn't relevant to the question you're asking or the point you're making, we don't need to know about it. All discussion should be both polite and civil. Trolling or flaming in any form is forbidden. Just because someone disagrees with you does not mean they are stupid or on drugs and their personal hygiene isn't really relevant to the discussion. Regardless of the merit (or lack thereof) of your argument, it should be made in a way that is neither insulting nor condescending. Whining in any form is forbidden. Blizzard is not incompetent or stupid and they are not intentionally screwing you over and neither is anyone else. If all you're going to do is complain, don't bother posting. Threads should be started if and only if there is some reasonable topic to discuss. If the issue you wish to discuss is covered in an existing thread, use it rather than creating a new one. If you are asking a simple question that you expect to have a simple answer, ask it in one of the "Simple Questions/Simple Answers" threads. But if you feel there is a topic of discussion not well-covered by existing threads, feel free to start a new thread to discuss it. Some sub-forums restrict new members from creating new topics unless they've made at least 10 approved posts, to prevent spamming or bad posts. If you really think it deserves a new thread before you have 10 posts, contact a moderator with your post content. Do not post unless you have something new and worthwhile to say. Do not bump, quote for truth, cross-post, or post only to say thanks. We don't want to hear your funny story about something that happened in your raid last night, your baseless speculation is unproductive, and your idea for a new ability really isn't that interesting. We don't care what gear you are hoping to get or just received. If you have an idea you'd like to share with the community, support it with analysis, testing, or both that indicates you've put some thought into it. (Note: Posting of a new untested spec falls under this rule, unless you have done the grunt work and have information to support your amazing new spec don't even bother posting it here.) Do not beg for hand-holding. These are forums for discussion and analysis, not for answering any question that you might happen to dream up. Search and read before posting--do not post a question unless you are fairly confident that the answer isn't widely known or easily attainable. In particular, we do not want to take a look at your armory or WWS to tell you what you're doing wrong and we're not interested in making your tough gear or spec decisions for you. We expect you to use the search function and also to read the first post as well as the last 5 pages of the thread you are posting in. Chances are your question has already been answered. Additionally, do not post asking for confirmation of a simulation result. If you think there is a problem with the Sim you are welcome to PM the author. All accounts must have a valid WoW profile. If you no longer play and have deleted all characters you used to have, you may select the "No WoW Account" option; otherwise, this information must be filled out for your main character. If you fail to observe this rule you'll be permanently banned from our forums. We do not permit anonymous posting. Do not sign your posts. People can see who you are from the profile printed to the left of each post, so signing your posts is redundant and simply takes up space. Similarly, you do not need to link your armory in your post, as if people wish to see it they can get it from your profile. Do not respond to terrible posts. Do not respond to a blatantly awful post (a post that is in clear violation of the rules) either in an attempt to moderate them or to answer a question they posed. Your post will just be warned/infracted and removed with the post you are replying to. If you feel that a post is in violation of these rules, please report it and the moderators will deal with it as we feel is appropriate. No Advertising. Do not make posts solely for the purpose of advertising your site/blog/twitch/etc. You may post such things if it's relevant and adds to discussion at hand. If you have information to share, share it here with a link back to your blog or whatever. Do not post "I have information, come to my site to get it". That will result in an immediate infraction and post removal. Also, we will remove any link to a site that violates a games TOS/EULA such as gold selling sites.

      If you violate a forum rule, you will receive an infraction. Most infractions are worth one point, although we reserve the right to give you more at any time if we feel you deserve them. If you accumulate too many infraction points, you will receive an automatic (usually temporary) ban which revokes your posting privileges, as follows: 3 Points - 1 Day 5 Points - 3 Days 8 Points - 1 Week 10 Points - 1 Month 15 Points - Permanent

      Familiarize yourself with The Banhammer, an archive of all infractions given by the moderators here; it will give you some examples of what not to do. Also feel free to take a gander over The Dung Heap, which will give you a good idea of what these forums would look like if we weren't such jerks.   Thank you for joining the discussion!
    • Site Maintenance (Updated 11-12-15)   10/01/15

      Site has been updated to IPS as of 12 November Known Issues So Far: Old wowhead "item" tags are depricated. They may be re-added to fix some issues with older guides, but for most part it's better to just use the modern wowhead.js which auto parses actual wowhead links automatically into tooltips/names. Just post wowhead links in guides and the js will do the rest. You don't need a special BB code for items. Old article links will be broken do to IPS 4 changing url path to remove some pointless "/_/" directory. The articles are still there and can be found in guides menu. You just may not be able to click links from any threads linking to them without editing out the "/_/" part of url. I'll fix most of this little by little when more important stuff is taken care of. External links/google search results may run into same problem. That will just rely on waiting for google to reindex new paths. After you login, you may be thrown to an error page saying page cannot be found if you logged in from the forum index. Harmless though. Just click "forums" and you'll get forum index since redirect after login is busted. The benefactors bar seems to hang/timeout sometimes.

  1. Gratz to the Kill. After I watched the video I was wondering why you did not use autoattacks in the Amber Contruct?
  2. You didnt solo the boss Shoot. You had a Rogue in your group for Attackspeed. While the Rogue died after 90seconds, it doesnt mean you solo'd the Boss. The reason you had a Rogue in your group was probably more dps so you could beat the enrage. Anyway, after watching your video it seems to be possible to solo w/o the help of some other class. When I watched your video I saw alot of rotation/priority mistakes & also alot of (failed) pet disbands. Overall atleast 4, which means you didnt do anything for atleast 20seconds. So there is alot of room for improved.
  3. Wish granted! Killed Champs 25H http://i.imgur.com/OuSJw6u.jpg / http://i.imgur.com/YksVr2H.jpg (Itemlvl 565). Started with all Cooldowns on the priest, followed by kiting all the melees. My targetprio was warrior>rogue>dk>shaman>the rest. Some tips: Specc Narrow Escape, specc Wyvern Sting, always have freedom or disengage ready when the dk grips, dispell everything.
  4. A tip/information for Alyrazor solo as SV Hunter: You NEED to crit with both Powershots both adds. If you dont get 4crits, just reset. You wont have a chance.
  5. For unknown reason I know how he did survive Infest and Plague :P He did not remove the staminabuff and refreshed it afterwards. To add something useful to this thread, I killed Iron Council 25man "normal" mode. Nothing special, really trivial.
  6. Halion 10H Champions 10H Edit: Killed Auriaya & Hodir 25man. Hodir 25 Auriaya 25man Video
  7. I killed various bosses from the list of unkilled bosses on the beta. Ofcourse they dont count, but I still list so some people can see which bosses are possible. Marrowgar 25H, Deathwhisper 25, Deathbringer 10H, Rotface 25, Rotface 25H, Putricide 10H, Princes 10, Lana'thel 10H. Lana'thel 25.
  8. Killed Razorgore again first try this week.
  9. You can also attack her while she casts Shadow Bolt. Its only a timewindow within 1second, but its enough for a chimera shot/mend pet. I tried to solo Blood Council in Icecrown Citadel but they hit my pet like a train. While i take myself 20-30k hits, my pet do take 60k. Prince Valanar's melee swing hits Yang for 66024 Physical. Prince Valanar's melee swing hits Yang for 66321 Physical. They even kill my pet through shell shield. I tried to kite them too, but my best try was 71%. Now to my question: Why do they hit pets that high? One idea would be to not allow a pet tanking Keleseth (the shadow lance guy) while it was current content but his damage is actually fine.
  10. You guide about Kilnara is not really good. But lets do constructive criticism. You dont try dodge her leash, which is not a good idea. Her actual cooldown on leash is only 10seconds, so if you get unlucky, can get 3leashes in 30seconds, which would kill you. Attack her only while she casts Shadow Bolt, while you have Intervene ready or while she is channeling Blood of Tears. Another criticism point would be the Adds. There is no need to kill her adds. Simply reset her adds with feign death. Overall you will save about 5-6minutes each kill and you take much less risk to die in p1. If you dont know what i mean with resetting her adds with feign death, you can watch my old video: Its 2man, yes, but its the same tactic i did use to kill her various times solo. P.S: That kill is pretty bad, it was one of our worst 2man kills :P About Kael'Thas: I killed Kaelthas in the last two weeks 8times (on various characters) and i did not have any problems.
  11. delete please, doublepost
  12. Extra note for Gluth (25man Version): He has a 7min 30seconds enrage timer. You'll need 19.000DpS.
  13. Killed Twins as Marksman with a cat. DpS was around 23,5k and my itemlevel is 399. Serpent Sting + Chimera Shot on Vek'lor (aka my focus aka the magic guy) & Widowtoxin, Steadyshot and Aimed Shots at Vel'nilash (aka my target aka the normal guy).
  14. Yes, XT Hardmode seems possible. I almost killed him. The damage done is not the problem, its more the damage taken. You also need luck with Searing Light. Sometimes you start the bandage and one second later you get the debuff which results in zero healing. Now you still can try to bandage only when you get Gravity Bomb but you get way more Searing Light debuff's. Dont stack stamina. More stamina results in more damage from Tandrum but your bandageheal stays the same. Check my Log here. One healcrit more and he would be dead. My comment to the overall soloing thing: I'd love it to have a forum where we can post world first kills/kills overall with videos and discuss things. Sure, this thread is nice and Durendil's Blog isnt bad too but you have actually no overview and you gain bans very fast (that is no criticism, your forum, your rules!)
