re: Raid Prep & Emerald Nightmare

0

As our first WoW raid will soon be upon us, I thought it would be a good idea to gather some info to help people prepare.

Basic stuff

Class guides can be found here and contain information regarding specs, talents, rotation, gear / stat priorities, etc...

Unlocking third relic slot - allows you to raise the ilvl of your artifact weapon considerably

Gear & gear enhancements

The gear you want to be in to begin raiding will be 840+ and with as optimal stats for your class/spec as you can manage, and you'll want your weapon to be 870 (3x 840 artifact relics).

Enchantments

There are three item slots that can be enchanted; cloaks (primary stats), rings (secondary stats), necks (procs).

Buying enchants straight from the AH seems to be the cheapest way of enchanting your gear right now if you don't have mats, as most people levelling enchanting do so on vellums and then sell them, flooding the market with enchants that are cheaper than their materials.

Further info: Legion Raid Prep & Consumables

Consumables

Flasks

Crafted by alchemists and persist through death. Unlike stims, they only last for an hour so it's a good idea to have at least a few. There are four types: Flask of the Whispered Pact, Flask of the Seventh Demon, Flask of the Countless Armies, Flask of Ten Thousand Scars.

Potions

Also crafted by alchemists. WoW's adrenals. You can only use one per fight. There are numerous potions but the relevant ones are Potion of Deadly Grace (DPS) and Unbending Potion (tanking). There's another DPS potion (Potion of the Old War) but it seems to be inferior to Deadly Grace.

Prepotting: using a potion immediately before pull causes the cooldown(1m) to begin as you aren't yet in combat, meaning you can use a second potion in the fight.

Food

Crafted by Cooking. Provides bonuses to secondary stats, in three tiers:

- Light Meals:gives 225 of a stat. Good for levelling, questing, dungeons & general purpose.

- Large meals: gives 300 of a stat. Good for difficult dungeons (Mythic+) and for raiding.

- Delicacies: gives 375 of a stat. The best, and most expensive. Good for progression.

Augment runes

Defiled Augment Runes increase your main attributes (Agi, int, str). These are not craftable but are obtained by doing dungeons when your role is in high demand. They can also be bought/sold on the Auction House.

Tome of the Tranquil Mind

Tome of the Tranquil Mind - this is your field respec.

Emerald Nightmare

Emerald Nightmare has 7 bosses and features multiple portals that take you to 'nightmare versions' of areas from World of Warcraft. With the exception of Nythendra, Cenarius and Xavius, the bosses can be killed in any order. Tactics and other info can be found here.
