why is vial of desperation good on beryllia? The buff only lasts 3 seconds and there's more than 3 seconds between the end of her cast and the start of her torment cast. So you get zero benefit out of it lol
This is actually a fairly rough fortified week, which people can see by checking the stats.The hard part of timing keys this expansion is timing them. Grievous making your healer need mana plus spiteful meaning they can't drink slows you down heavily, especially as most dungeons seem to be on a rotation where the fear dude is late in the dungeon.
Of course, "allow your healer to drink more frequently" is made...uh...a bit harder (and slower) by Spiteful. So there's that. I'm also not sure how Spiteful does "nothing" to ToP- the platforms make you fight spiteful mobs a) in close quarters, and b) where you can't cc and run away. They can't NOT slow you down, unless I guess if the entire party is next to the portal and clicks it the moment the last mob dies, assuming there aren't any other spiteful spirits up?
Eles with guidance and SPriests are really nice this week.
Necrotic Wake can be a breeze .... Until you get into the Necropolis at the top. That is, IF you survive upto the 2nd boss :DMost of the trash is Necropolis is already crappy to begin with, just random damage to anyone in the group, a very LONG channeled stun that also does damage during the whole channeling cast and then there are some group wide nasty dot aoe damage. Lots of things need to be interrupted and on top of all that you don't really have much room to avoid Spiteful adds.This dungeon can be worst than Sanguine Depths this week for pugs. It's not bad for organized and experienced groups on Discord calling out interrupts / stuns etc..
Post advises people to stop following the meta in DoS of picking up all 4 powers before first boss, and instead just go straight to Arden with 2 powers. Any reasoning why? Perhaps those 2 powers in Ardenweald wing are the 2x DPS powers and those are the important ones?
