SotR: Garrosh is Dead!

Final and I on our new mounts!

Final and I on our new mounts!

So I realize I have been severely lax in posting State of the Raider posts lately.  I realized this beyond a shadow of a doubt when we killed Garrosh this evening, and I came to notice that I have not posted a raider update since my first SoO post, where we killed up to General Nazgrim in our first week.

So now, time for the big long picture-post update!

We flew through the raid dungeon faster than I expected.  Then, we spent about two raid weeks working on Garrosh.  Finally, tonight, before our break even, we killed Garrosh!

Mistweaver Monk BiS 5.4

T16 - MonkIt is that time again – time for another Tier, another raid dungeon, and another BiS list.  Okie, okie, so it is past due time, but I have been BUSY!

Mistweaver Monk BiS – Siege of Orgrimmar

It is my second tier as a Mistweaver, and so I am once more putting together the list to plan my set.  This is to help me figure out where to spend extra rolls and EP in raids.

Bosses in Siege of Orgrimmar

First, a quick rundown of the bosses, and a glance at where the tier pieces drop.

Wing 1 – Vale of Eternal Sorrows

  • Immersius
  • The Fallen Protectors
  • Norushen
  • Sha of Pride – Tier (Chest)

Wing 2 – Gates of Retribution

  • Galakras
  • Iron Juggernaut
  • Kor’kron Dark Shaman
  • General Nazgrim – Tier (Hands)

Wing 3 – The Underhold

  • Malkorok
  • Spoils of Pandaria
  • Thok the Bloodthirsty – Tier (Head)

Wing 4 – Downfall

  • Siegecrafter Blackfuse – Tier (Shoulders)
  • Paragons of the Klaxxi – Tier (Legs)
  • Garrosh Hellscream

Tier 16 Set Bonuses – Mistweaver Monk

2-Piece: When Gift of the Serpent spheres heal a player, they gain an absorb for 45% of the amount healed.

4-Piece: When your Renewing Mist heals a target, you have a 4% chance to cast a Mist Wave healing bolt at a nearby low health friendly target.

Siege of Orgrimmar Drops

Next, here are all of the BiS items for the Mistweaver Monk this tier.  They are in order of best to worst.  This time around, I mostly just used Guild Ox.

Note: For some reason, even though I set the option, Guild Ox did not want to list the crafted items.  So I added those at the end of their respectful slot.

* – Denotes an item without Haste

# – Denotes an item without Spirit

We will start with the tier piece slots…

Head

Shoulders

Chest

Hands

Legs

Then, the rest of the armor…

Wrists

Waist

Feet

Jewelry and stuff…

Back

Neck

Rings

Trinkets

And lastly, weapons…

Main Hand

Off Hand

My BiS List

  • Head – TIER (Thok the Bloodthirsty)
  • √ Shoulders – TIER (Siegecrafter Blackfuse)
  • √ Chest – TIER (Sha of Pride)
  • √ Wrists – Bracers of Averted Fatality (Malkorok)
  • √ Hands – TIER (General Nazgrim)
  • Waist – Pennyroyal Belt (Leatherworking)
  • Legs – Pennyroyal Leggings (Leatherworking)
  • √ Feet – Saltwater Sandals (Immersius)
  • √ Back – Jina-Kang, Kindness of Chi-Ji (Legendary)
  • Neck – Rising New Moon Talisman (Ordos)
  • √ Ring 1 – Laser-Slice Signet (Iron Juggernaut)
  • Ring 2 – Seal of Sullen Fury (Malkorok)
  • √ Trinket 1 – Dysmorphic Samophlange of Discontinuity (Siegemaster Blackfuse)
  • Trinket 2 – Prismatic Prison of Pride (Sha of Pride)
  • Weapon – Horned Mace of the Old Ones (Garrosh Hellscream)
  • √ Off Hand – Purehearted Cricket Cage (The Fallen Protectors)

The trinket slot decision is tough without testing them all… and there are so many…  I might just stick with the two I have (Nazgrim’s Burnished Insignia and Dysmorphic Samophalnge of Discontinuity) for now.  I suppose it depends on how kind drops and bonus rolls are.  We shall see.

Consider this list a work in progress.

Using My Warforged Seals

My biggest question now is where to use my Warforged Seals.  I think my current priority bosses are:

  1. Ordos
  2. The Fallen Protectors
  3. Sha of Pride
  4. Malkorok
  5. Siegecrafter Blackfuse
  6. Thok the Bloodthirsty
  7. Garrosh Hellscream

This is also a work in progress, and subject to change.
