      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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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!

  1. I solo'd it in 25H on my first attempt, no challenge.. Did anyone find how to survive Valiona's blackout debuff in 25H?
  2. It remains an aspect of the game which they don't give a fuck. That doesn't surprise me at all.
  3. Maybe a new world first (legit kill, don't forget Durendil's one) : Ragnaros 25 hm before enrage. 16min10 to kill him, so I guess it was doable without new upgrades after all (I think 580 ilvl is needed). I was in bm spec because I have a better gear for this spec atm, but sv is a better choice for this fight.
  4. This. And that's why, in bm spec, we will keep spirit beast for almost all solo. His spirit mend can be use on himself, so in 70% of the cases it's a better cd-def than turtle/beetle shield (remember that his heal is more powerful if used on himself, and only 30sec cd). For bm solo, we'll keep spirit beast, but without cower. That's a huge nerf imo who can't be compensated by any species ability
  5. I don't like as much as you the Versatility talent. (for solo). Roar of sacrifice, we don't care about that, and bullheaded has 3min cd. Cower is just really huge, 45sec cd so op, and very useful for burst damage. And then, Versaitility = bm solo. If for some reason (dps/aoe for example) we have to switch in sv or mm, I don't think I will take this talent. I just want to know why Blizzard is removing this ability. I don't see any reason.
  6. I'm a little late but... Well.. fuck. Did Blizzard give us some reasons? I mean, atm new bosses are all immune to our taunt, so it doesn't matter I guess. But cower wtf? Gonna miss that ability.
  7. I agree, solo means solo, it means you are alone (and solo). If you want someone who helps you without dps the boss, just take a healer, much easier \o/
  8. I agree, but I wanted to do these solo without buff, as for raid solo. 20% stats with dps gear give me the same amount of stam as my stam gear. So, yeah sure that's enough -_-
  9. Xuen down with full stam (893k). You can solo with less stam but with more rez :p Do not forget to dispel Xuen's buff agility, when your pet is going to die, go as far as you can from Xuen, rez pet, fd. (you will not have enough deterrence to stay closed). Crackling Lightning won't kill you, keep moving to avoid Barrage. Spec bm for spirit mend, just to be safe.
  10. Just killed Beth'Tilac 25hm... first pull -_-
  11. Strat in description. I will make another video for Spine. I have another strat in mind which is by far easier and less random... if it works, I haven't tried yet.
  12. Maybe doable with a full bis gear (I mean full hm wf) and all raid buff
  13. Well... Ascendant Council 25 down... dat joke ! I did one try before to switch in 10H the last time, just for fun. Then, today I try one more time and... down. Too easy, don't even have to switch pet for multiple spirit mend, don't even need Juggernaut's trinket, I just used Glyph of Liberation. I waited for bl, that's why I killed him after 12min but... I think I could easily kill him without. Ascendant 10H and 25N were so easy that I will try Ascendant 25H next timer. I don't know if it is doable but... at least there will be a real challenge.
  14. Spine of Deathwing 25 down ! Not really hard but very intense because of grips. You can't kill Amalgam+tendon without at least one grip. I will update later with strat. Edit : Madness 4%, huge dps check Edit2 : And finally, thanks to Barrage, Madness of Deathwing 25 down ! Edit 3 : I think both of these kills are world first regardless of class
  15. Ascendant Council 10H down. First pull. No challenge. No comment.
