THANK YOU SO MUCH!
"A Guide to Farming Vanilla Raids"... I gotta say that i would have used the word Classic instead of the word "Vanilla", it makes it sound really idiotic.Vanilla word should not be used in games in such manner that many do.Most of all... it just sounds stupid when ppl say "Remember in the vanilla times... blaa blaa". quite sure that nowdays ppl don't even know half of the words meanings used in games and rl, they just use em cause they think it sounds "cool".--------------------------------------------------------------------Anyways :) very nice guide to those that are new to the game and to those thta might have forgotten :)Even Blizzard uses the term "Vanilla WoW" from time to time though, I believe. And honestly, Vanilla is used so frequently that it has become a valid term to use.
Vanilla generally means without any additions. So the time before WoW where it hadn't been expanded, would be the "vanilla" portion.
... Vanilla WoW but no AQ20?Come on now!
For the clothies out there, more specifically the priests. I ran MC today and it wasn't bad at all. The worst part were the core hound packs between lucifron and magmadar. They have to be killed within 10 sec of each other or they pop back up with full health. I took out the very first one (mostly by accident), which left just enough space to aggro lucifron and not pull the other packs. Then I ran carefully through the middle of the other packs, and pulled magmadar to the wall behind him. He'll fear you, so you may want bring a pvp trinket. I got lucky and was feared as he died so it popped of almost immediately. That was the hardest part of the whole thing. Old ragnaros is pretty much a joke, just put your back up to the wall and tear him up.As for AQ40, the trash mobs(Anubisath Sentinel) in the front can reflect to different kinds of spell damage, and that sucked. If you die or run out then they all reset. The first time 2 mobs picked up the shadow immunity and it was a slow death as I tried inching back toward the entrance. I couldn't take down prophet skeram. I could dot him with instants but anything casted and channeled was interrupted. Then he spawns adds and stuff. After dying 5 times slowly I gave up. I'll have to look more into how it goes. Although on the bright side in the few trash mobs I managed to kill, 3 different mounts dropped. The red, blue, and green one.AQ20 is right there so I tried it. Took down lots of trash and Kurinnaxx easily. Then the next boss is General Rejaxx. The whole room is the event. The general will send one set of mobs at a time at you. I got down to the last one before the boss in my final attempt after 6 wipes. Mana was my issue. Popping all cds, SW:D glyph, everything I could think of. I'm not the best spriest, so if anyone else has tips I'm all ears.Haven't tried BWL yet, just wanted to leave some info for others from what I learned.
How could you not mention Ashkandi in the BWL part?
AQ40 all bosses except twins+cthun+viscidous ooze are not soloable or atleast pretty damn hard to solo as 385ilvl boomkin...MC=ezAQ20=ez
You may want to include a mention of Purification Potion for the curses in MC, it's fairly easy to make and I take a few every week on my runs.
Twin emperors isnt soloable, they heal when they are next to each other. :(then again i do aq40 for the hat really.. and to get the mounts to add for the acheivement
Don't double click the orb. When you click the orb you get a debuff making it so you can't use the orb anymore, and when you double click, you start mind controlling, then you try to mind control again cancelling your first one. You HAVE to single click the orb which can be annoying if there are adds there, but if you have friends they can keep them away from the orb easily. (Unless they fixed the double clicking thing)Oh I know about the double clicking issue, I've done it a few times. It brings up the channel bar for a moment and then stops.I mean the orb just plain not reacting at all. I spent a solid minute one attempt, my buddies frantically kiting Razorgore and the ever growing horde, trying to use the orb. I'd click it once, count to 5, click it again, rinse repeat, for a solid minute and not once did it ever even stutter the channel. Three attempts later, it's working fine and dandy with no issue.Oh and it sometimes liked to crap out halfway through, be on like the last 5 eggs and the orb won't register clicks anymore so, BAM, Razorgore dies, room explodes, have to start ALL over.Nope, this has changed since that video. It was in the same hotfix when they addressed people soloing firelands trash, so comment speculation is that Razorgore was a side effect of something they changed about how mobs reset.Didn't know about the hotfix, but even without it soloing him was hard as hell to start with since it mostly hinged on evading him slightly to keep his HP from hitting 0 and wiping you.
BWL is challenging to solo, I dualbox, (very poorly, no added software/hardware, just alt+tabbing,) with an 85 prot warrior and 85 holy priest. I've beaten Razorgore without too much trouble but can't dish out enough damage to kill Vaelastrasz in the time it takes for burning adrenaline to kill both characters. I highly recommend bringing a friend for these encounters.
such a pointless god damn guide,who doesn't know this crap anyway....tell me something idk percula w/e ur name is
ah and u just wasted ur time making this that u call a "guide" like hey kids 1+1 = 2 did u know? no mom i never knew,that's how i see this guide
Hey smart guy, you know you can just hit the edit button instead of double posting right?
Ebonroc or what-have-you, the first of the double loot piñatas in BWL, is - I am fairly certainly - not solo-able unless you can decurse yourself. Otherwise, when you get hit with the curse (every three seconds or something), he will heal for 25,000 every time he lands a hit on you.
The Twin Emperors CAN be soloed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgXIsd9xyZU
Nice review - ty for posting, as I am sure it will be a help to those looking back to finish out some old achieves and such. Would like to point out two teeny things regarding attuenment:1. It is not, in fact necessary to attune in order to 'enter' BWL. Thsoe who have done the attunement quest simply enter more easily. Those who have not, may enter via the portal inside of UBRS (exit the back of the room after Rend & Gyth, turn left, turn left again, walk through the glowing green portal)2. One enters MC by seaking to Lothos only if one HAS attuned. if not, one enters via the portal inside BRD, acrodd the bridge from the Forge. Options for getting there:- run the instance and turn right instead of going straight on to the palace wing- enter the garrison, jump out the window, walk the bridge to Insidious, jump down into the lava and swim for the forge & bridge.Happy hunting!
Ragnaros drops Tier 2 pants.*giggle* he does? :D
This guide is just wrong about Blackwing Lair.You have never needed attunement to get into BWL. You only need attunement to use the shortcut. You can walk through UBRs and use the raid portal to get in without doing any quests whatsoever.
