Helm would be just a stat upgrade not close to BIS stats

 

Chest-again stat upgrades, shit overall though

 

Relic-good AOE talent/overall Ilvl upgrade on artifict, but nythendra and double dragons relics better overall

Outlaw is my mainspec, it's good cleave, and good Single target. Sub is my offspec, and should do more single target DPS now after the hot fixes, and better AoE after ilvl 870. 

 

Fel relic is BiS for sub, shadow is decently good.

Neck and ring are decent for outlaw, okay for sub.

Legs are okay for sub.

Boots are okay for outlaw.

hood of darkened visions - bis right now. 

 

blackened portal stone necklace -  BIS right now 

 

twice warped azsharan signet - BIS  good upgrade.

Xavius - Heroic Boss Strategy Guide

 

Two main mechanics throughout the fight

  • Corruption 
    • 33% a big pool will spawn only you can see takes up a quarter of room, does massive damage
    • 66% a big pool will spawn along with multiple little pools 
    • 100% you become mind controlled.
  • Dream State (3 minute buff)
    • Half of the raid group will be placed in the dream state. Upon waking up all of your cooldowns will reset. If you die in the Dream state you will wake up. 
    • Dream state DPS go to 100 corruption, get a damage buff, get mind controlled but you will wake up.
    • Dream state Healer is set to dispel debuff off tanks when they call out for it

 

Three Phase fight

Phase 1

  • Two players will be targeted by a linked chain. And a line of  blades will cast in a line that intersects both players
  • Two adds will spawn fixating on two random players, dream state players need to run in to the mob to absorb the corruption
  •  HORROR ADD will spawn - dream state tank to pick up add. DPS add down - while he is up he casts corruption nova. Massive raid wide damage, nothing you can do to avoid mechanic, he needs to die fast.

We need to transition boss to Phase 2 prior to second add spawning.

 

All players - range 6

 

Phase 2

 

Tanks - Move boss to middle of the room at phase transition.

 

Inconceivable horror adds will spawn throughout the edges of the room, they will slowly walk toward the boss. Can be slowed, stunned, rooted, knocked back. When they reach the boss they will cause a raidwide aoe of damage as well as corruption to apply to players.

After the Inconceivable horror add dies, they will leave behind a pool. Dream state players need to stand to soak up pool. If it is not soaked another inconceivable horror add will spawn in it’s place.

 

Two players will be tethered together - need to run toward each other to break out of mechanic.



Tanks - new debuff blackening soul. Needs to be dispelled. Dream state healers need to dispel this. Taunt off each other at 6 stacks of the debuff.

 

Nightmare infusion - melee attacks of the boss do more nightmare corruption - have dream state tank start phase 3 tanking boss.

 

Phase 3

Everyone stack up under the boss.


We will bloodlust at start of phase 3 and tunnel the boss.

Boss Loot:

Please review this loot table in your dungeon journal and reply to this thread as to what pieces of gear off this boss are your best in slot gear and how it will be of an upgrade to your character. We will no longer be wasting our raid time waiting on people to determine if a gear item is an upgrade for their character or not. 

 

We have a guild website for these matters, you read the expectations. Use it.
