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 Do not quote huge blocks of text to add a short reply; instead, quote only what you need to to make your point.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

  4. I have a fairly detailed outline of how to handle the downstairs phase over at http://www.huntersoloing.com/ Heroic: In heroic when the boss reaches ~66.5% he will go into the heroic only phase 2 area; the dread expanse. All of your cooldowns are reset and you will not be able to move due to being the only person holding the "pure light"; normally this mechanic would just be passed around via extra action button; however by yourself you are forced to be stationary the whole time. This phase is a much larger damage check than the crossbowmen; and also much more difficult. In phase 1 you want to try to get the boss as close to ~66.5% as possible before getting teleported to fight the crossbowmen; nuke the crossbowmen down and then when you return ideally it should take 1 or 2 attacks to push the Sha of Fear into the next phase if you planned correctly. The purpose of this is to carry theFearless buff going into the dread expanse; you will get 10 - 15 seconds of attack time withFearless that can gain you a few extra % damage on the boss. When you get into the dread expanse the boss will slowly make his way towards you; send your pet to pick him up and squeeze as much damage in as possible; save stampede. Keep in mind that the boss willDread Thrash (attack 6x on every 4th attack) and if your pet isn't topped off it will one shot your pet so you may need to revive pet a few times.Shortly after he begins attacking he will do the first Submerge and become unattackable for a bit.Submerge always happens when the bosses energy reaches full. Every time the bossSubmerges he will create aDread Spawn that will make its way toward you; if it reaches you it will 1-shot you; so these have top priority over the boss. The amount ofDread Spawn will increase after he returns from eachSubmerge so the amount ofDread Spawn you'll get will look something like thisSubmerge1; 1 Dread Spawn 2nd Submerge 2 Spawn 3rd Submerge 2 Spawn 4th Submerge 3 Spawn.Ideally you can kill him before you have to deal with 3Dread Spawn because this regardless of your gear is near impossible due to RNG of the directions they come from. The three most important things to keep in mind in this phase are; 1. Maximizing DPS cooldowns and not wasting them based on theSubmerge timer. I pop my stampede/lust/dps potion after the 2ndSubmerge for two reasons; if I get two Dread Spawn that are coming from opposite directions its less likely one will reach me with extra cooldowns; additionally I know I'll have a full cycle of the boss being attackable and not waste any cooldowns before he submerges again. 2. Eyeballing theDread Spawn and making a good judgement of the relative distance between you and them; your goal is to always kill the closer one if they are coming from opposite directions to ensure they never reach you. Because of the way the room is set up it can often be confusing whichDread Spawn is actually further away. 3. Recognizing that because of howDread Thrash worksyour pet is almost inevitably going to die at some point; and losing it at a crucial point i.e. when twoDread Spawn are closing in on you; is most likely a wipe. Be pro-active with your pet's Last Stand ability; if it prevents a pet death at a crucial moment its better than never used at all if you were planning on banking it for later.

  6. I think originally I had reported 252 but I had missed a joint log where logs had been turned off due to a DC and then on; looking at logs added correctly it comes out to 302 attempts. Many thanks; it was a lot of fun and maybe the most wipes and the hardest boss I've ever solo'd aside from Feng when he was current content.

  8. Meh, I actually like your strategy a lot more; as you mentioned the precision of positioning is key and a lot more people can obtain that ilvl and probably utilize that strategy vs my strat; I would totally like to steal that for huntersoloing.com when I eventually publish a Ra-den guide if you don't mind.
