Nice guide Argent.Also:
Never seen Berubians, matey?Neither have I....
Nicely done on the Guide. love it!
Looks like we'll need the holy hand grenade for this one...
I'll just give my 2cents on how we do things in our guild :)Icehowl
I listed all the available cloaks (plus the one in the item itself) on the comments:http://www.wowhead.com/?item=47551Just in case anyone was curious like I was to the expertly vaguely worded "high level cloak" :DThey're not on Wowhead yet but the WoW Armory links work just fine.
I was not sure if it was 272 or 278 :P
Holy damn. Anub'arak Heroic Mode looks incredibly brutal.
A few things to be corrected. Some of this is 10-man specific, but still highly relevant:
Actually, I think it's a good idea to let the "Berubian" Burrowers... burrow in phase 3. This will reduce the amount of damage the OT has to take, but the OT will have to quickly pick them up if they come back up. Healers will need to keep an eye on the tanks, and the people who's been afflicted with Penetrating Cold, since that one ticks for 6k on 10-man. Wiping at 25k is never fun... >.<
You guyz don't switch the essence for dpsing when opposite colored Val'kyr shields? Can someone clarify this? We are losing a lot of time to change our essence.
Basically you have to choose wether you lose more dps by attacking a same color twin (ie 25 or 50% reduced damage) or by moving to get to the right color and then start dpsing the twin (ie you don't do any dps while you move + higher risk of being hit by wrong balls)
The best way to avoid the DPS loss is to tank the twins right next to the portal with the opposite color your DPS is using.So, if you're nuking the white twin and all your DPS are using the black color, tank her right next the white portal. The DPS can switch very quickly to white to nuke the dark shield or survive the AoE, then lose some time to walk towards the black portal again to resume DPS'ing.
The shield is a neutral colour in normal so you don't have to change colour. I assumed it was the same in heroic unless somebody knows differently?
Only need 2 tanks for Gormok. I've tanked him multiple times in ToGC 10 with each tank never going above 2 stacks.
