Hellfire Citadel – BiS List, Boss and Loot Progression

pits of mannorothMy raid-loving readers have all probably taking a sample of the new raid Hellfire Citadel. If you feel anything like me at this point, you’re quite elated with new content and very curious and interested in the new bosses and boss mechanics. As with any new raid, there’s always some standard questions, that I will try to answer in this post.

  • In which order can you progress bosses?
  • What is the Best in Slot list?
  • What’s up with new wonky item level progression?

Okay, the last question is maybe not-so-standard. Blizzard has recently decided that the deeper you go in a raid, the higher item level will the loot have.

Mistweaver Discussion – My Wish List

This post will be a bit more whimsical than my usual Mistweaver Discussion posts. Today I want to talk about my wish list for the Mistweaver spec. Features that I think would be awesome for the spec and some quality of life improvements. I recommend reading this post with a big cup of tea and a huge bar of chocolate. Though the chocolate is optional.

My wish list is not a please-change-how-mistweavers-fundamentally-work-otherwise-I-might-die kind of list. I actually think that Mistweavers are in a good spot right now. Sure, we have some weaknesses. Mainly being unable to burst up more than one target unless they are all stacked on you. We also have a problem with that most of our healing is active healing, or in other words we have to keep pushing buttons to make heals happen. As soon as we stop button-mashing, the healing will stop (as opposed to shields and HoTs). But that is part of Mistweavers weaknesses, and we have other strengths that compensate for that. It is good that we, or in fact all of the healers specs, have weaknesses when it comes to raiding. We are meant to work as a team, compensate each other and become better together. The team composition is more important than the single person. But on to the list!
