Patch 3.3 & You; PTR Updates!

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , , , , on November 18, 2009 by Camron

Patch 3.2 was a good one for Mutilate Rogues’ and Patch 3.3 looks like it will be too. Recent updates to the Patch notes appeared yesterday.

Deadly Poison: In addition to its existing effects, when a rogue applies Deadly Poison to a target which has already reached the maximum number of applications, this will also trigger the poison which the rogue is using on his or her other weapon.

Improved Poisons: Bonus chance to trigger Deadly Poison from this talent increased.

This means for Mutilate Rogues on a single target you should see more procs of Instant Poison. This should be another great DPS boost for us.

The change with improved poisons should also boost the Mutilate Spec DPS with multiple target boss fights. Although the percentage help is very small, anything to help rebuild stacks of Deadly poison on a target is welcome!

Keep it coming Blizz!

I haven’t posted in a week or so.  Not much has been going on in game but the main reason is I have been working hard on the new website. www.DPSforDummies.com Link in the sidebar.  The site just has a landing page right now but I hope to be able to have it up and running soon!

Edit; Site’s up and running.  Check it out!

Killing Time

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , on November 8, 2009 by Camron

Guild setup an EoE run for tonight. Not enough healers or DPS so we Pugged a few. Scheduled for 7:30 and we are now going on 8:30 and we still don’t have everyone in vent or even in the Instance. This is the reason we shouldn’t be Puggin. We make ourselves look bad to other guilds by not having these “Guild Runs” well planned out.

Edit: Shortly after 8:30 we got going. We wiped multiple times on phase 3 before calling it. Not gonna lie, I’m not very familiar with fight so I probably wasn’t helping the first couple times but got it towards the end by following simple directions. “Stay out of the static charges Dummy”. Those things must be noob-proof as we failed multiple times because people were spreading out to much. Called the raid at about 9:45 as we had multiple people who dropped. I certainly can’t blame them. Maybe another time!

My First Time with Ony

Soooo….I’m a bit behind here but I have never really had the urge to head into Ony’s Lair.  The guild put together a group to run tonight.  After three wipes we finally got her.  Nothing good as far as loot but it was definitely a learning experience.  And seeing 8k DPS on the charts doesn’t hurt my confidence either (Thanks to phase 2 for that).

For a Rogue there’s not much to this fight.  PHASE 1 – Tank and spank but stay on the side of Ony to avoid tail and talon swipe.  at 60% health you begin PHASE 2 – First Fan of Knives the group of whelps that come out.  Redirect aggro using Tricks of the Trade.  Also your are watching for “Deep Breath” and you must immediately move to a wall in her lair.  After first phase of whelps switch to Guardian Adds (move out of range of guardians during blast nova) until 40% health and then begins PHASE 3 – Another tank and spank with some fears thrown in.  It’s really nothing when everyone pays attention and does their job.

It was short and fun and now that I’ve got an idea of how the fight goes I’m not as worried about Puggin it for 25man.

Ooo! Piece of Candy…Mutilate Deeps Revisited

So I hadn’t posted about this since I picked it up but I got my Black Night’s Rondel a couple of weeks ago but I hadn’t bothered heading for the tacklin dummies to test out my Deeps.  Well I did a few nights ago and was mighty surprised at what I found.  I was hitting 4k and able to sustain it unbuffed!  This is all compared to the boost Mutilate got after the 3.2.2 patch.  Check the link to read my story before…

I’m still interested to hear what some of my fellow mutilate Rogue’s are doing as far as Unbuffed Sustainable DPS?  A noobs gotta compare himself with someone!

How many licks does it take….

to get to the center of WTF Blizzard was thinking when they made Tier 10 Rogue gear?!  My guess is Blizzard has a random armor generator, they take images of their favorite characters and NPC’s from the game along with pop culture icons.  The generator then spits out something and Blizzard says “PRINT IT”!

Case and Point;

Blog Tier 10

Insert 1 Loot Crazed Diver, The Road Warriors and one of those Green sludge things and this is what you get;

Rogue Tier 10

So when this Gear is released in Patch 3.3.  Go into options; Show Cloak, Do Not Show Helm and make sure to wear a tabard.  I’m old school Rogue, I don’t need all of this design crap.  Give me a Rogue with Black Sweats and a Defias Mask to wear and I’m good to go!

But here’s the good about Tier ten.  Set Bonuses, and they are some good ones!

  • Rogue T10 2P Bonus – Gives your melee finishing moves a 13% chance to add 3 combo points to your target.
  • Rogue T10 4P Bonus – Your Tricks of the Trade ability now grants you 15 energy instead of costing energy.

Hopefully you’re already using ToT everytime it’s available but if your not then you will be now.  More to come as the PTR continues!  O and my Rondel finally dropped off of the Black Knight so no more jousting for me!

Black Knight’s Rondel Drop Percentage

Posted in Gaming with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 5, 2009 by Camron

So after two full weeks of patch 3.2.2 I have yet to get my hands on the new dagger drop from H ToC. I have ran the instance 13 times and seen it drop once only to roll an epic 7 against and enhancement Shammy. I think there has been some similar frustration with the caster dagger in there. Anybody know the drop percentage of this thing?

But regardless it’s a new goal for me. So I will continue to run the instance nightly until I can get my hands on it.
