Heroic modes Tips and tricks For NORUSHEN HC.

Immerseus hc mode raid pve

Let's get this started. Heroic modes Tips and tricks For IMMERSEUS HC.

After many napkins (full of pseudo math), and taking the data from simcraft, i went to wowhead, and compiled the BiS gear list for 2 x 1hand,

Here it is :

And for a fast look to have while raiding here is the image of it.

So yesterday we managed to down the Heroic version of the Fallen protectors.

The tactics were the same except the kill order that now was Rook - Sun - He.

Also we promoted the cleave damage in-between HP plateus, meaning we focused Rook, and left the cloaks and abilites like RSK splash damage (dot) take away bits of the other's HP.

When i find out who recorded this fight i will post it here, also we did a few tries in Norushen HC and left him at 8%, so tonight there if everything goes well there should 1 or 2 new hc kills.


So yesterday we started heroic modes, bear in mind that 80% of the guild stopped playing and only returned 1-week after SoO was released, so only now, most of us are getting our legendary cloaks, still i think we have had an amazing progress for the lack of gear and time spawn. Here is our kill video on immerseus yesterday, Boomkin POV.

This is a clean fight without much to worry.

You will be mostly on boss. Always kill Totems and Banners first. Leg Sweep adds like the Arcweaver and the Shamans. Try and stun the Assassin with Fists of Fury. Do not touch if he's in defensive, kill adds. (Avoid using Chi Wave if you can. You DO NOT want Nazgrim gaining any rage during Def Stance.)
With the advent of Thunderforged and Warforged weapons, BiS lists are much less valuable a resource than before, because we would be advising a list of items that not even the best players would have a chance to complete. Instead, we now give you advice for choosing your trinkets, your set bonuses, and whatever else is important for your class.
  • Haromm's Talisman Icon Haromm's Talisman and Ticking Ebon Detonator Icon Ticking Ebon Detonator are your main trinkets for Tier 16. Assurance of Consequence Icon Assurance of Consequence is also viable, but it is not as good as the two aforementioned trinkets (other classes benefit from it a lot more than Windwalker Monks). Sigil of Rampage Icon Sigil of Rampage is not worth using because its cleave damage is reduced by Storm, Earth, and Fire Icon Storm, Earth, and Fire.
  • For your weapons, Hellscream's Cleaver Icon Hellscream's Cleaver is the best choice before Heroic Warforged items. After that, any upgrade in item level is worth taking.
  • Your Tier 15 set bonuses were not that great, so you will want to replace them as soon as you get higher item level gear. Both Tier 16 set bonuses are worth having, so you should aim at wearing 4 pieces of Tier 16 and 1 off-set item (preferably a warforged item).

This is a punishing fight for melees, but we can make it work, let's break it down then.

Talents that i use for this fight.

Tiger's Lust for mobillty on demand, getting out of oozes and what not.

Chi wave because of its healing/damage component and short cd already making it a part of my rotation.

Ring of piece because bosses are affected by disarms.

Diffuse magic well as a damage dealer your only source of harmful damage is mage and anything to mitigate it, is good.

Rushing Jade wind, due to it's low cd and because i like to send a clone to the oozes and do some AOE on them with this ability.

Now to the fight itself.

IMPORTANT:The Dark Shamans are susceptible to Grapple Weapon, which not only decreases their melee damage but also increases the performance of the monk who used it. It essentially becomes a DPS cooldown, increasing your damage dealt by 5% for 8 seconds on a 60 second cooldown.

  • If targeted for Ashen Wall or Foul Stream, always aim it away from your raid, and away from the kiting path of the bosses.
  • Touch of Karma during Geyser if you wish to stand in it, roll away if not.
  • Stoneskin as needed, and Diffuse Magic works well with Toxic Mist.
  • Kill the boss at all costs, range will kill the adds.

ATTENTION:One thing to note for all cloak users, if you aim near the adds at all during a cloak proc, you can get aggro and they will come to you and kill you if you do not notice that they aggro'd to you.

So you finished the first 4 bosses of Siege of Ogrimmar, and you are just of the harbour, and you are about to start the Galakras fight (cool looking mount might i add) so lets check this fight.

So beneficial talents for this fight are:

Tiger's Lust                  Diffuse Magic                 Invoque Xuen, The white Tiger
Tiger's Lust is just my personal favority movement talent not much to add.

Most, if not all of your cooldowns, must be used during seismic activity and before a pulse.

With the damage from activity and the pulse, you'll save yourself more times than you can count. 

Obviously don't pop them all for each activity and pulse, but only if you think it will save your life, or if healers need help. Also use Tiger's Lust when targeted by a cutter as well as roll, avoiding all tar.

I choose to use Xuen in this fight because it is a single target fight. But i am looking at and testing RJW as a single target dmg dealer, for the simple fact of the uptime it has in comparison to Xuen.

So you finished the first 4 bosses of Siege of Ogrimmar, and you are just of the harbour, and you are about to start the Galakras fight (cool looking mount might i add) so lets check this fight.

So beneficial talents for this fight are:

Tiger's Lust               Diffuse Magic         Rushing Jade Wind(Personal choice)
Tiger's Lust is just my personal favority movement talent not much to add.

Diffuse magic will save you well on the fire arrows it helps and on the prison add it also reduces dmg but it shines when galakras phase begins and you have all those fire orbs going around.

Rushing Jade Wind here is a what will make you top dps on this fight, i mean higher then locks at this point, but i will talk about it later.

So lets break down the fight. 

Your key spell and where you need to get good at in this fight is and clone targeting and choosing the adds with Storm, fire and earth.

What you are aiming for is the adds with the longest lifespawn or the ones that will last the longest, why, for higher uptime of you RSK dot, with RJW and combine that with fist of fury and the damage is insane.

Best targets for the clones are archers while you move around freely.

So the fourth boss, and he gives tokens YEY!!!!
Hate the trash on the room FYI.

So beneficial talents for this fight are:

Tiger's Lust               Diffuse Magic         Rushing Jade Wind(Personal choice)

Ok tiger's Lust is because of the movement one has to do during all the fight, be it prisons, stacking or going to and from the side-wall adds.

Diffuse magic will save you healers not gaining 5-pride, so you as a monk can dispell yourselve, therefore help the healers.

Rushing Jade Wind here is a personal choice because of the adds that spawn underneath you, and because you can guarentee a bigger uptime of damage on the adds with RJW then with Xuen.

Use (fortifying brew) and  (touch of Karma) to negate Sweeling Pride damage.

When big adds spawn leave a clone on the boss so you will deliver damage on two fronts, Big add and Boss.

And if you want to maximise damage on little adds when you run away put 2 clones on 2 adds and while you stick on boss RJW all the way and pad the meters.

(HC tactics for monk)

So, you killed Immerseus and The Fallen protectors, and you just went thru some trash, now you get to the Norushen fight, where you actually fight the an Amalgamation of corruption.

Let's see, a fight with adds that sometimes get clumped up, happens more at 25-man: Check
A phase where you need to kill 5adds : Check
Magic (shadow damage): Check

So talents for this fight are:

First boss in Siege of Ogrimmar, let's see this boss from a Windwalker monk point of view.
What can be done to improve your job and help the raid.

WindwalkerAllSwirlTranscendenceYou can port through the whirl beam
WindwalkerAllSha BoltTranscendenceYou can port out of the Sha Bolt's collapsing
towards the  center as P1 ends
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleDisableUse disable to slow and/or root the adds, but
they die so fast i'm not sure if is worth it
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleLeg SweepAdds are stunnable. Up to you if you want to
Leg sweep a group of 2 for 5 seconds, or maybe
try and ox wave 2 sets, but that seems error
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleTouch of DeathDo not forget to use Touch of Death on the
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleHealing SphereAwesomeHealing Spheres actually work on an NPC!
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleChi TorpedoTentativeChi Torpedo Heals the adds, but it's pretty
underwhelming unless you can cleave damage and
healing on a bunch
WindwalkerAllContaminated PuddleGlyph of Targeted ExpulsionDoes Not WorkGlyph of Targetted Expulsion sounds good,
but when the chi is pretty meaningless for a
WW/BrM, Healing Spheres just to more healing
than an Expel Harm, cut in 1/2. The only way
the glyph and EH would pull ahead would be
counting the damage as useful too,
which is a stretch, especially when other glyphs
are good.
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleFlying Serpent KickTentativeFSK Slow should work on the adds too
WindwalkerAllSha PuddleChi BurstMake sure chi burst is up to do a big healing
and damage cleave on adds at the start of
phase 2

Windwalker Monk Patch 5.4

In this post i will cover the windwalker monk, and its changes and mechanics, with the help from sources like ElitistJerks, and simcraft, because i guess we fell they are the more reliable ones.
