World of Warcraft
In this installment of our Mogushan Vaults video series, Shaidy goes over tips and tactics for the 1st heroic boss, The Stone Guard. If you would like help with the normal mode of this encounter you can find that here. You can find more tips for Mogushan Vaults in our Stone Guard Video and our Feng Video.
I hope that the information I’ve provided in the video below allows you to successfully gain those server first achievements. If you have any questions please feel free to ask questions in the comments! If for some reason you aren’t playing on launch day I’ll be powering to level 90 and streaming it all at twitch.tv/shaidyadvice
Let’s dive right in, shall we?
The spec we’ll be looking at is based roughly on this one: http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#kMH
At 15, we’re probably going to be taking Rolling Blood. While the other two talents could be useful in some situations, Rolling Blood turns you into a dot spreading machine, perfect for simplifying aoe threat scenarios.
We’ll start with something that looks like this: http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#dyje
A lot of the talents serve a dual nature, reflecting the nature of the paladin class itself, to protect itself as well as its allies so some of these talents will come down to pure preference depending on playstyle.
Here are the bones of the choices we’ll be working with: http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#lxVN
At the end of the day, subject to a little variations, a protection warrior’s talent specialization will probably look a little like this: http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#wyUi
NB: This has all changed with the removal of the 6% crit reduction for locks and non-prot warriors, this change relegates lock “tanking” to low level mobs or purely spell based bosses. If you are reading this and would like me to do a full on guide for the kind of tanking we can now do, please let me know in the comments. It’s going to be extremely situational in progression raiding so I won’t be doing too much on it unless I get some feedback!!!!
So today we’re going to start taking a look at the newly revised talent trees for the various tanking classes but we’ll start with the monk Brewmaster and the choices available to them. Keep in mind too that these choices are made with PvE tanking situations in mind.
This is the build that I would recommend: http://mop.wowhead.com/mists-of-pandaria-talent-calculator#n!jX
Not deep and philosophical musings about the nature about emotions and their purpose in our lives but that little red bar that lives under our little green bar that we seem to be spending an awful lot of time staring at (or different colors and numbers depending on your choice of UI modifications).
When I first started playing the warrior, I thought that it was the perfect system for warriors to use as a resource.
It made sense, you know? It fit the aesthetic of the warrior class where you gain the ability to perform more tasks the more angry you get…which is dictated by how often you hit things and how often you’re hit.
