yeah Bloodboil is one of my fav fights, in the beginning i cast MD pull the boss to MT i run back to where raid is standing and just spam macro w/o going on any cooldowns making sure i dont get threat caped. i FD if i need to but i usually dont go over threat untill 1st enrange.
When enrage happens, and boss gets on someone i blow all cooldowns ( rappid fire + BW + trinket ) and open up w/o any fear. soon as rappid fire is down i FD then i continue DPS and wait till boss goes back on MT.
Then i walk back to raid and keep spamming std/auto macro and make sure i dont threat cap and i FD after that asap every time cooldowns up.
This week when i pulled agro, it was very late in to the fight, boss must have been around less then 25% this is after multiple FDs.
before every raid, I open up WowAceUpdater and make sure Omen is up to date so i know im using the latest Omen.
almost same situation last week.
What im doing sound about right?
like one SURE way i can prevent pulling agro on bloodboil is just to not DPS at my full potential.
please i'd like some more input on what other hunters are doing on this fight.
Is the priest class dead? No, I really don't think that at all. However I do see a significant shift away from it in WotLK.
I retired my warrior, I mite do the same with my priest. DK mite be the way to go.
But I sill love being a priest going from MT healing to raid healing on the fly and back(as needed). We are getting nerfed again and that's to bad. Then when are numbers drop we mite see a change, but it just mite be to late.
To change the subject a bit, I have been thinking about the best spec will be in Wrath. I want to do mutilate spec but I'm not sure exactly where to put the remaining 20 points. On the beta I've done 51/15/5. I picked up dual wield spec, precision and dagger spec in combat and then pretty much threw away 5 points in subt.
I have seen people talking about taking serrated blades in mutilate spec, but is that really preferable? Seems like you're throwing away points just to get it.
I'm been reading this thread for awhile and I may have missed some discussions on this because I'm not finding what I'm looking for, but since the patch is coming out before WotLK and our guild is still going to be raiding post-patch, what spec are rogues looking use? The best daggers I have are Malchazeen and Dirge. I haven't touched them since I got my spiteblade and never picked up any daggers along the way. I'm looking for a combat sword build I guess and haven't found one that I'm sold on. If someone could link a level 70 sword build, I'd appreciate it. Currently I have the blade of infamy and blade of savagery with BiS items outside of Sunwell loot.
