    I had a relatively easy time with the mythics, but last dungeon event I was ilvl 691, and now I'm ilevel711. A 711 Brewmaster can pretty much keep herself alive indefinitely regardless of receiving heals or not, so really the other members of the group were there just to speed things up. I ended up soloing both the first and last bosses of Iron Docks.

    The war mill upgrade chance is only for quest items. It doesn't do anything outside of questing.

    Technically it increase anything that is 'upgradable' in the sense of turning into a better color. So peeps with War Mills also have a better chance of getting purples from rare mobs/treasures in Tanaan.

    I ran three more mythic dungeons this morning. First time I did that since the last dungeon event back in July, and things definitely got rough. A few people quit over the course of those dungeons when they realized it wasn't going to be a faceroll like heroics. The second boss encounter of Iron Docks can really wreck groups if they're not careful about Sanguine Sphere. People also tend to mess up on the final boss fight, not realizing that attempting to run through Skulloc's cannon barrage almost guarantees death. We lost two of our DPS to that, and it was just me (arcane mage) plus the tank and healer. The healer said "Wipe?" and I responded with "Nah, we got this." Took about 3 or 4 more barrages, but we got him down.

    It's also typical that I got 2 warforged upgrades out of those mythic dungeons, with less than a week of gametime left. And my normal HFC cache gave me a heroic warforged item which ended up being a pretty good upgrade. I didn't expect that at all. My ilvl was bumped up from 701 to 704 because of all that.

    Oh God, 3 of us decided to dive into Mythic dungeon for the first time last night. Grabbed a pug mage and a tank. Took a while to find the tank, and while we're waiting the mage (drunk off his ass) suggested Iron Docks as an easier choice for our first go around. We had a few deaths early on, but the second boss really gave us trouble. That sphere was getting hit non-stop... until I let the mage die. Even then we took some trouble, and eventually when he bitched we kicked him and grabbed someone else. Things improved, though it was still pretty tough going.

    Any suggestions for the other 3 to run that won't suck?

    I'm pretty sure I broke the sanguine sphere in Iron Docks once or twice due to how arcane missiles works. I just loved the feeling of unleashing a full volley of them at her, followed by DBM saying "SANGUINE SPHERE - STOP ATTACKING" as I watch the first of my missiles hit her sphere. Ugh.
    slag mines and skyreach are pretty easy; auchindoun isn't terrible but the third boss is kind of a pain

    Just to add to that: Mythic Shadowmoon Burial Grounds isn't bad, although I heavily recommend not ignoring the adds on the second to last boss. And the 2 bats and 2 spiders right after that boss can wipe the group if you don't know what you're doing; they all have some sort of poisonous attack that kicks the shit out of you. Dust off those CC buttons.

    I haven't dared to try Upper Blackrock Spire or Grimrail Depot on mythic. I always dreaded UBRS on heroic mode, and I experienced a lot of wipes in Grimrail in the earlier days of WoD. I just have no desire to experience them in harder form.

    At what point do (significantly) better secondary stats outweigh item level? If I'm looking at 685 vs 691 and the 685 has my two best secondaries, while the 691's are crap, does the INT outweigh it? What about 685 vs 675? 10 ilvl seems like it'd be enough

  • LorahaloLorahalo Registered User regular
    It really depends on your spec. Some specs have way better stat weights to primaries than secondaries, while others are only slightly higher. What spec do you play?

    the answer is 'basically never.' For edge cases like ~5 ilvls and perfect stats vs terrible stats, you have to get into the scale factor weeds to really see.

    If it improved raid drops it would be seen as a mandatory building and would get changed I imagine. I didn't realize it improved Tanaan rare drops though.

    Raid and dungeon drops can be warforged, but the extra chance for it to happen that the Bunker provides only applies to quest rewards and world rare drops.

    RNG is RNG. If the Bunker actually did work on raid drops then it would indeed be a mandatory building and every would know. Your anecdote proves nothing.

    Items in raids and dungeons can warforge, but the War Mill doesn't affect the chance for it to happen. War Mill is quests and world rares only.

    You might not have read the war mill description?
    Abilities
    Doubles the chance for your quest rewards to get a rare or epic Bonus Upgrade, and increases the potency of the upgrade. Allows the collection of armor scraps from the orc clans of Draenor for armor transmogrification use.

    There's already a chance to upgrade quest items. And it isn't called "Warforged", it's just straight upgrades in quality.

    Warforging is a different thing entirely and isn't related to the war mill at all.

    Oh, hey, INT heirloom ring mission. Some shuffling around, okay 96% chance off you go. If you fail you better die in the process.

    One more tome until legendary ring and only two bosses left to get it from. Trying for LFR Assault tomorrow.

    socrethar is pretty much a joke on all difficulties

    on heroic he can trip you up slightly if you're used to having a single robot phase like on Normal, but once you do the transition it's no big deal to repeat it indefinitely until you kill him

    I'm just sad that we didn't get any real attempts in on Soc/Iskar cus we spent so long Gorefiend. Hopefully he'll die faster next week and we can get some more shit on.

    Anyone have a suggestion for a pve server to reroll on? I'm sick of playing on a pvp server. World pvp just doesn't interest me in wow...

    Undecided on horde or alliance, I can go either way. Will probably roll a dk just for the whole starts at 55 thing. That or use my 90 boost on a monk.

    Take a look at Kul Tiras with a level 1 alt, since you can run straight to a city right away and check out the chat there. It's not a super fantastic server by any means, but I enjoy it. We were merged with....another server but no major problems. Chat tends to be fairly lively during main gaming hours.

    I have an alt on Stormrage and that server is pretty much crowded all the time. Fun, though.

    I ended up on Horde Zul'jin based on a suggestion on here from someone that I don't think I've heard from since. I rolled a DK and he's 100 now. I'm pretty happy there. I, also, was sick of my pvp server and it's bullshit.

    Dealing with work all day and coming home to do a few things in game and getting relentlessly ganked by folks who play all day finally took its toll. What little enjoyment I may have gotten from actual world pvp (which basically doesn't exist anymore anyway thanks to flight and garrisons) is just not worth it.

    Months ago I would have suggested rolling on the Draenor realm where our sort-of PA guild is. Things have really wound down for us, though. It's looking like we're only going to have 4 people from my guild in tonight's raid, with the rest coming from OpenRaid invites and probably also PUGs. And my subscription is up tomorrow. We'll probably be back together when Legion comes out, though!

    Speaking of tonight's raid, if there are any tanks/healers interested in joining us for our attempts at normal Archimonde, here's our OpenRaid event. Feel free to sign up there!

    While I'm not opposed to Horde Zul-Jin, and it's been recommended to me before by someone else... You're the one that convinced me to roll on Emerald Dream alliance to begin with... so I'm hesitant to listen to you again...
