Brushing up on Proving Grounds and Else

Arena of Annihilation

We are in a phase where every guild, that is still raiding, is progressing but not much else is happening. The wait for Blizzcon is excruciatingly long. No, in fact, it is longer than that. In the eve of boredom, what shall we do to endure this wait? Well, I for one, have been brushing up on my Proving Grounds skills. For you who don’t know, I transferred to Draenor EU and became horde Panda. On my new server, there was a Mistweaver who had a few more points than me in PG. Competitive as I am, I promptly broke that record (at wave 65). In the process, I broke the best Healer record on the server as well. Go figure. But I still have my eyes at wave 70!

After my PG session, I took a peek at my PG guide and noticed that it needed some brushing up. So I have been dusting it up and polished it a little, added some more information about gear choice, macros and such. Images have been updated and I have also proof-read the guide, since I am usually very lazy about such things and I figured… Well, I have to do it sometime! Below you can find the links. Notice that I have renamed “The Healing Guide” to “Preparation Guide” for the sake of clarity.

Youtube uploads – BRF and Crane Stance PG

For you who have missed it, I’ve uploaded some new videos on Youtube. My Heroic Gruul and Flamebender Ka’graz kill, with vids of me doing Proving Grounds completely in Crane stance. Just for the fun of it.

In a typical Misty Teahouse fashion, it’s sporadic and never in order. But they’re here now, so enjoy!

Proving Grounds Class Distribution

I saw on MMO Champion  a chart over class distribution in Proving Grounds. If you haven’t seen it, this is how it looks for healers:

PG Class dist

This is the class distribution over Proving Grounds Endless, “Any Endless Wave”; “10+ Endless Wave” and “20+ Endless Wave”. I just thought it fun to share the statistics, seeming how the percentage over Mistweavers is very low. It could indicate that Endless is really hard for Mistweavers and if you have done it, you’re really good!

The percentages are for 20+ waves:
Druid: 40.6%
Shaman: 25%
Paladin: 14.4%
Priest: 12.6%
Monk: 7.4%

So if a Druid says that he or she has done Endless, it is just wholly unimpressive. Try it as a Mistweaver :P

After a long journey of Beta Proving Grounds, I’ve finally finished the guide I’ve wanted to do for so long. It has taken it’s time and I’ve finished each difficulty more times than I can count. I’ve recorded videos, taken hundreds of photos to bit by bit nail a strategy that I think is the best.
