I don’t have the next crop of “Best of the WHU…” posts ready to go, so the next installment will have to wait until next week. Until then, here’s the next in the Brawler’s Guild series: Meatball is the last boss at Rank 7, and apparently Blizzard went temporarily soft. After running the unholy gauntlet [...]

Battletron is my favorite fight in Brawler’s Guild so far. Why? Because Dark Summoner is arguably a harder fight in terms of the mechanics. It’s about how you handle the mechanics themselves more than any enrage timer or dps quotient (though more dps always helps). Battletron, on the other hand, is very much a gear [...]

WHU-Lem Shake

Posted: by Arth in Videos

I’m so sorry and/or you’re welcome, depending on your opinion toward these. Enjoy!    

Well, it’s been quite a wait. After rifling through everything up to Dark Summoner, there was a long pause. Some of this was me hitting a wall: at 481 ilvl (at the time) I was nearing the limits of my skill with the bosses. Some of it was on Blizzard’s end: Brawler’s Guild was bugging [...]

So I recently dug around to try to find where hunters were with extreme soloing these days.  What encounters are possible, what fights have been done, etc. In doing so, I stumbled across a hunter named CaribaLd, who seems to be at or near the cutting edge of current hunter soloing.  He also documents his [...]

Rank 7 of the Brawler’s Guild is when &*%! gets real.  All three bosses (the fourth boss at Rank 7 is a deliberate joke boss) are very tough and very different.  There’s a huge dropoff on each boss in terms of the number of people that have killed them. GG Engineering is the first of [...]

Our continuing series on the Brawler’s Guild is nearing its end (though Rank 7 will take a bit longer than others).  Rank 6 has a lot of similar fights, but has some unique challenges that will make us dip into the hunter toolbox.     If you’re not in the Brawler’s Guild and don’t plan [...]

More Brawler’s Guild action, this time of Rank 5. Rank 5 has some truly interesting and difficult fights, like Millie Watt and the Leper Gnome Quintet.  I’m at the point where all the fights are hard enough that they need some explanation of strategy and approach in the videos. As always, if you have questions [...]

I don’t think Frost has anything queued up for today, and I want to keep the Brawler’s momentum going for those who are working on their own progression. Anyway…Brawler’s Guild, Rank 4.  All bosses and some analysis are in the video below. This rank felt like the transition between warm-up fights (Ranks 1-3) and legitimate [...]

Before this installment’s video, I want to discuss a few things I’ve seen: Burst vs. Healing MM gives us the best self-heals, which can be useful.  However, many of these fights’ mechanics are either one-shot mechanics where healing is irrelevant, or they’re things like gargantuan melee hits, where our self-heals won’t prolong our deaths for [...]

More Brawler’s Guild action, this time taking us through Rank 2. The fights aren’t designed to be terribly hard at this point, but there’s some mechanics that may require a little bit of focus.   Here’s the macro I reference: /cast Ancient Hysteria /cast Bestial Wrath /cast Rapid Fire /use Potion of Brawler’s Deftness /cast [...]

I love the Brawler’s Guild.  It’s like “mini-raiding” where it’s just you and your pet against an increasingly more difficult set of bosses.  If you don’t know what this is, you can read up on it by clicking here.  It’s pretty awesome, and I highly recommend it. Apparently the first rule of Brawler’s Guild is [...]

Today we have a very special treat for you from the Hunter Fuel album — over two years in the making and the song I’m most excited about — the secret hunter community project. Hunter’s Are Just Awesome is based on the awesome Discovery Channel Boom De Yada commercial, and many prominent hunter community members [...]

Here’s the second of the Hunter Fuel new hunter songs, and the first of the original songs — the hunter love song, ‘Til the Servers Shut Down. This song is all about the unique relationship between hunters and their pets. You can download a mp3 of ‘Til the Servers Shut Down here. If Google Drive [...]

This is the WHU contribution to Sharm’s Hunter Open Collab, in which Sharm sung the first half and left the second half open for others to contribute. You can download the mp3 of Balthazar’s Hunter Open Collab here. Alternate download [...]
