  • it’s crazy that people are still joining keys without knowing the added boss mechanics and what affixes do. they think it’s just a harder heroic...

  • The best thing about mythic plus is that if I get kicked, I know a new person can’t enter the dungeon so everyone else can’t finish with just 4 people anyways so we sort of all got kicked.

  • I agreed with mostly everything except when you said stay away from people who only do keys that give them score. Nobody is playing a game to waste time on something that wont progress them. 40 minutes just for something that doesnt benefit you makes 0 sense. + you won't be making friends in pug groups so it still doesnt matter to do them

  • Nobody is going to take mythic + serious, because M+ is not a rewarding loot distribution. I went from M+4 to M+13 without a single drop.

  • very informative and good video! allthought i do have a question: how do you deal with tyrannical weeks? for most part it feels like people refuse to do dungeons on tyrannical weeks, especielly when there is really nasty affixes like necrotic and bolstering. Is there a way to motivate people to do keys in despite of this? I was pushing a bit in BFA (only got to +19s done with pugs, didnt have a dedicated team) and even then for example most people werent too hyped about trying to push during tyrannical weeks. any advice or thoughts on this?

  • Just discovered this video and your channel and it all makes sense honestly, the acceptance of the bench is something a lot of newer players won’t understand and to a point that’s a good thing, nothing was worse in vanilla/tbc than sitting on the bench as my hunter unable to leave or log off and I just had to sit outside waiting to be called up, no playing alts nothing, the one thing I will never miss about vanilla

  • i agree on many points of this video, except the number 2... i mean u can do a dungeon u already did just for fun or to farm a piace of gear but apart from that i always try to do new staff but i only queque for dungeons if i know i can tank it, i would never try a key that i'm not 100% sure i can handle. The thing is that if u don't play dh rn u are not allowed to tank in pug and so if me and a dh has the same rio they will pick him and so his score will go higher and so they will keep taking him... it's very frustrating... Today i spent 2 hors in oribos trying to go into a 17 with 2 17s done and all the 16s... so fun :)

  • As funny as it might sound I think I make less mistake than I think I do, I am decently new to the game, I’ve only started playing since shadowlands launch, I am a healer main, and since I’m new, when every time someone dies I always think it’s my fault. I always apologizes. Until some of my guild member started telling me that it’s those people’s fault for prioritizing dps over dodging ability......

    Tim ChouTim ChouMåned siden
  • In "Damage matters" i notice you tried too much to explain it, I think a good way to say it is basicly: if the objective die faster, it won't be able to kill you. It literally happened to me yesterday doing DOE with the gnomes, after doing it with literally 3 groups and all of them failing on killing them until someone left (we couldn't stun the female gnome when casting the bombs), we finnally did it when I decide to use my last drums because none of us had hero, so instead of actually stop her casting we just killed her. So they cannot kill you if they're dead :)

  • Hi! I liked what you said about the damage and how it all matters. As a resto shaman, I feel as if I could be doing more damage but Im not certain how to approach it. Usually, I try to keep flame shock, lava burst, and chain lightning in the rotation as much possible. Any tips? Is there a significant difference in the potential damage output from different healer specs? Say, holy paladin vs resto shaman?

  • While I find this very helpful, none of this matters if your main source of keys is through dungeon finder and you can't really make progress. Just yesterday I spent 4 hours looking at dungeon finder and applying to almost all +10-11 groups without getting into any of them. I play meta dps and my score should be more than enough for average group leader (I avoided those elitist kind of groups since they are always a waste of time). And it wasn't even that I would get instant declined like last week, but there is so many dps players trying to find a group that unless you are super high ilvl or score, it's nearly impossible to even get in.

  • 8th rule, don't pull if you are not the tank. That said, I'm a tank and it is often frustrating having some players which think we can go faster and pull. When I wait a few seconds as a tank, this is with the intention to wait that a cd for a proper pull is coming up again. E.g pulling as a port pala out having my shield of avenger on cd is a very bad idea, especially in larger groups. same for other cds. 9th rule, please look around not pulling accidentally patrol groups that are not on the list. This often causes a wipe or one or more players need to use cds that are planned for another purpose. So, I think sometimes it's better to wipe than having cds for the next tyrannical boss. What do you think?

  • Very good video. Very educational. Thank you for taking the time to make this. It sure helped a lot. As a tank player, myself, having to take the second part of BFA off for business reasons, coming back to the game felt a bit overwhelming. It's videos and content like this that I like consuming to catch up to speed and also recommend to the people I start playing with to get them up to speed and see who is serious and who is not.

  • How often does releasing put you at a graveyard in mythic+? I mostly get spawned at a previous boss kill or the beginning of the dungeon (which sometimes would be too far away). I still very much enjoyed a video actually giving advice on improving!

    PhoenixianRosePhoenixianRose2 måneder siden
    • When I use the word "graveyard" I'm referring to wherever you respawn, whether its the beginning or where a boss dies. From what I can tell its mostly random, some bosses update your respawn and others don't. It takes a bit of knowledge to know where this is going to happen

  • Just came back to WoW after a long absence and Jesus what a mess the game is in. Tanks having to run from trash packs? Getting turned down for runs because of a score on a website even though I'm geared? The insane amount of daily and weekly garbage I have to do just to keep up? And the toxicity has gone off the bloody charts. The game has gone downhill in a major way. I play games to relax and have a good time, not to try and beat a timer and get yelled at constantly. I tank because I want to be the guy going toe to toe with the big ass monster, not so I can run for my life from trash mobs. And for the love of god just because something takes forever doesn't mean its fun. Torghast is torture, I'm in no danger at all but it takes hours to finish.

  • I am 1:20 into the video and you're already wrong. 70% of the time you should just release. Mythic+ timer doesn't wait for a rez. release and get your ass back to the group asap. Only -don't- if you are unsure the path will be clear. You also certainly -can- only play for score.
