Staying Occupied After Clearing Mythic Hellfire Citadel

Jaybee Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 0 Comments

World of Warcraft is deep into the 6.2.3 patch and many mythic raiders are having a hard time staying engaged. The rush of putting in hard work and getting progression kills with your team is a feeling that can be hard to get from anything else. If you are the type of mythic raider that lives for throwing your entire …

World of Warcraft has reached the end of another expansion. For the past few months, more and more guilds have killed Mythic Archimonde and others have joined the ranks of guilds selling full Mythic HFC clears. My own guild has had Mythic Archimonde on farm since January and we started selling our own full clears a month ago. The sales …

Warrior Blurb: Execute and the Legendary Ring

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 0 Comments

Welcome to another Warrior blurb, where I either discuss or whine about something on my mind related to Warriors. This week I am going to discuss (or whine about) the legendary ring and its role in Warrior parsing – particularly Arms Warriors. Many people are probably saying that the ring greatly affects everyone’s DPS and ability to parse, and Warriors …

Warlords of Draenor has offered some of the best raiding experience in the game thus far. Not only were new raids released in a timely manner (most rapidly of any expansion I believe), but most of them were pretty hard. Now while certain fights were harder because of fun reasons (complexity, twitch reflexes, etc.), others were harder for not so fun …

Alright, if you read the first article of this series, you probably remember me saying that my articles were going to get more practical in terms of usable advice. Well, I fibbed … sort of. That is coming, but after finishing the guild section of my first article I felt I did not give that topic the attention that it …

Chasing the Bleeding Edge: Forming a Mentality for Improvement

Jaybee Mass Resurrection (Raids) 2 Comments

I’m writing this article as the introduction to a short series about becoming an elite Mythic raider. I don’t mean a Mythic raider that goes 4 or even 5/13 two months into HFC. I’m talking about the kind of raider that competes in a “top three guild” on their server. The kind of raider all high-end guild leaders want because of their …
