Text says Split Personality is only with the mask but the table shows it as the base Madness. Which one is it?
Split Personality + Haunting Shadows is a recipe for nasty surprises: Don't Move! Wait, get out of that purple circle! If you are in a narrow Stormwind alley, you could very well have to eat the disorient and hope you don't get clipped by Haunting Shadows
No leaden foot or scorched feet? Should be eaaaaaasy
Split P and H Shadows are just F'ing awful in the Mage's Quarter The Boundless Corruption mob will at best take 25% of you sanity in the fight and at worst with bad rng just outright drain you to death.....good luck trying to avoid fighting him too with him crawling all over the place
Gaming Gift of the Titans is the best way to deal with him. Just kill things around to fish for a proc and burst him while immune to the drain.
Such a breeze without leaden foot in SW.
It's interesting that everyone is happy to see Lead Foot gone. With Mask of the Pained, the Lost Areas are WAY worse this week if you're a class with limited mobility. Elemental shaman SUCKS this week.
While the affixes aren't great for this week (at least for Lost areas), they are LEAGUES better than Leaden Foot.
Thanks for the info :)
Lol just get a Gift proc before you pull the boundless corruption
Man, guess I am going to have to wait for another cycle for the 5-mask run on Stormwind. Madness: Haunting Shadows coupled with Madness: Split Personality is just not my combintation. Made two runs / attempts at it, and both times ended in the Mage Quarter at either the Boundless Corruption or at Magister Umbric. I am right on the edge of the minimum requirements called out in the guide on the iLevel (460 as of last night) but have all of the Research in place and my Cloak is now R15. So assuming it is just the ability to DPS them down, bad RNG, or just me ;-D At least it isn't like the expansion ends in two weeks.... I have time to finesse this.
Split personalty has a gap to escape though, I don't understand how people hate it so much? Your screen will que when its about to happen just stop and head for the gap, its usually left / right rarely is it behind you. If you're using the pained mask, I assume you have a basic understanding of a route to take, and you can survive what you pull. Not the end of the world to stop moving forward for a second to avoid 3 extra seconds of wasted time in a disorient (more if you have to turn to face the right way after).
I know this is going to be an unpopular opinion but... I really didn't mind Leaden Foot. The Lost combo this week is so much worse, at least you can play around Leaden Foot. Shadows+Split is so much worse, so much more punishing and so random.
I for once like Leaden Foot way more than Split Personality+Haunting Combo. Being shaman I can remove the slow from Leaden Foot for couple of seconds, which makes this Madness way bearable than said combo, which killed me this week so many times.
During Ogrimmar week, Split+Haunting is fine because both lost areas have wide open areas, but on sw, Both lost areas have way too many narrow spaces, and since Split personallity gap is random, there's a big chance it will be facing a wall and you'll be forced to just stay in there. Now add haunting shadows and burning bridge to that and you'll understand why some people are pissed. Being forced to just watch you character losing sanity for mechanics that sometimes just don't have a counter isn't fun at all.
