    Challenge Modes

    Post by Babzy on Mon Feb 17, 2014 1:00 am

    Hey Guys,

    So i got a lot of interest from CM's this week. I was looking at starting to run some for guildies. If you are interested in doing CM's on a character send me an in game mail and/or leave a message here. I am going to create groups as optimized as possible so we can do things as efficiently as we can. Also, let me know if you have any gold experience before! The experience is irrelevant for the most part but it allows me to see who has at least had some practice on which CM's.

    Just a couple things of note

    1. NO Legendary Meta gems, legendary capes is fine because it has a gem slot, however don't be relying on the procs.

    2. You will need fully Enchanted and Reforged Gear, you may need to actually gem and reforge for some mitigation on tanks. For this reason I would suggest maybe an alternate set of challenge mode gear.

    3.Consumables will be 1. Flask, 2. Food 3. DPS Pots.
    Edit: Wow I forgot the invis pots (18 seconds pref) and the Restorative Ambers from Klaxxi vendora (this is more a healer only item)

    4. Check in the proving grounds if you are hit capped. this is huge, I started doing CM's and didn't realize I was 1%% under cap (lol).

    Other than that, remember I am only 1x 9/9 Experience, so I may(will) make mistakes too!. If we want full guild groups than maybe we can get some Banquets from the bank! (hint hint). I have a couple friends that can help as well.

    You also typically need invis pots too in order to avoid certain pulls - not all players are Rogues or Mages Babz Razz

    I've been waiting for a good opportunity to knock these out, so I'm game. I spent a few hours going for one of the golds when mop first released, and that constitutes my CM experience. Since we finally got H Garrosh down, I should have an easier time finding the time to get these done. I also have have a set of CM/PG gear and plenty of all of the consumables mentioned above.

    I don't have a set at the moment, but it wouldn't be hard for me to come up with one with all the DPS gear my monk has in his bank, though finding time to do some CMs again would be iffy. I have two golds, in Brewery and Setting Sun, but didn't bother doing any of the others.

    Thats not bad, SSB is one of the hardest. I don't know how good monks are for DPS in CM's but from what I do know they should be decent. Usually you want them to be Mistweaver/Brewmaster because they are super good at that Ilvl

    About 15 attempts at Scholomance gold is my experience. I'd be down though.

    Yeah, I did both of them in tank spec and would probably be best off doing that, I just meant that I had a bunch of extra gear that I could use for a CM set, since my tanking set has 0 tanking stuff in it.

    What time were you planning to do Mogu'Shan Palace tonight? I have a lot of work to get done, but want to get at least half-ready.

    On a (funny) related note:

    I had recently done some big tweaking on my gear that had me a little concerned about mana. During flex last night, I started having some real mana issues towards the end of most fights. So I started looking into making major adjustments to correct for that...

    until it hit me that I had re-forged out a Lot of spirit for the purposes of challenge modes. D'oh! I hope I can remember how I had things originally.

    So, I'd be interested in this as well. I've already done one 9/9, but have several other toons available or that can be available without about 1 hour of gemming and enchants. Feel free to ask if you see me on.

    I would be happy to help out on any future CMs. I had a lot of fun doing them. Or, if people would like to carry any of my sorry-alt-asses, that'd be great too.

    Are there some people who still need challenge modes? I'd like to complete them on my shitty mage and holy pally alts before they disappear. I'm not really prepared for them at the moment, but if there are others who need them I can get ready quickly. I'm 9/9 gold on my warlock.

    I'd go, but won't have time until about 2-3 weeks from now (finals, etc) lots of shit going on. I have near BiS for frost (but accidentally deleted one of them).

    I'm 9/9, almost full bis (minus engineering helm, prof perks, and boosted trinket), would love to do these, help people get their golds and gear, etc. Just let me know!

    I'm able to dedicate this Sat evening or all day Sunday for healing these if the demand is there.

    I am 4x9/9g willing to help out just to meet people. Elemental shaman, I have a prepared set - doing roughly 100-120k dps in any given run. I'm familiar with some time saving gimmicks on every run.
