WtW Guide to Pre-Patch

In Legion, Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

With Pre-Patch being released on July 19th, I thought I’d write up a quick guide to what you need to know for the few weeks between 7.0 and Legion. Check out the FAQ and TL:DR guide plus all the changes from Warlords to Legions through my blogs posts: Spellbook Changes  |   Talent Changes Stat Priority **UPDATED: July 30** Whirling …

6.2.2 and Chi Ex vs Serenity

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

So since this is a very hot topic with lots of misinformation and opinion based “facts”, I thought I’d try to spell it out for everyone. There are 3 periods of time that you need to know about: Pre-Hellfire Citadel (6.2) Back in the “olden” days of Blackrock Foundry, it was widely known that Serenity was roughly 10% more damage, …

Sims 8.20 – Changes in 6.2.2

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

In case you missed it, Windwalker is getting some buffs, http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/19820046/. Monk Please note that tooltip description for the following Monk abilities will be inaccurate. This will be corrected in a future patch.     General         Blackout Kick now deals 10% more damage.         Rising Sun Kick now deals 10% more damage.         Tiger Palm now deals 20% more damage. …

CX for ST Sims 8.19

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

All of this theorycrafting is 100% meaningless with the 6.2.2 changes that were posted. So a few days ago I ran some simulations to figure out the best new APL and way to handle using Chi Explosion as Single Target. This assumes you have the t18 4pc and SDI trinket from Archimonde. This is an ongoing theorycrafting discussion but I’m …

Chi Ex for Single Target Sims 8.17

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

TL:DR at the bottom So since there has been much discussion about using Chi Explosion (CX) for all fights, even single target. I decided to run some sims to see if a new APL (action priority list) is needed to accommodate for this. Check here for the discussions. I used my own character, and assumed that the fight lasts 400s …

Chi Ex for Single Target?

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

There is reasonable discussion being had about the merits of using Chi Explosion on all fights, including single target. Although there is much more testing that is needed, there are some very good examples of people who are very successful with this, such as Raitank (Kazzak-EU) I am not ready to start advocating for everyone to switch as there is …

Hellfire Citadel BiS Gear

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

I’ve been asked by several people to develop a BiS list. I will divide it into a Serenity list and Chi Explosion list as the gearing is different. I’ll also include the bosses and the next best item(s). Trinkets will be discussed in a separate post. NOTE: The Tier items listed as #1 are BiS regardless of item level over …

Changes in 6.2

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

Back from vacation I am caught up with quests in-game as best I can be. I have yet to run more than a few bosses in HFC so my boss guides will come slowly. Now that 6.2 is released, there is very little that has changed for Windwalkers. Much has changed for other classes so it has shaken up the …

6.2; BiS, Stat Weights, Trinket Theorycrafting

In Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

Another brilliant update from Hinalover with more information on the eventual patch 6.2. http://www.chiburst.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=348&p=2651#p2651 Hina has developed a first draft of sorts for BiS Gear as well as stat weights for each lv100 talent. Currently it looks like we will want to stop stacking Multistrike after 40% as the value falls off quickly and by 43% it falls below Vers …

Its the Eye of the Tiger’s Brew

In Spotlights, Warlords of Draenor by Babylonius

So all Rocky references aside, Tigereye Brew is as close to the most important button for a Windwalker as there could be. How to use it is widely considered a main divider between the good and the great Windwalkers. What it does Tigereye Brew is a Windwalker cooldown that increased damage and healing done by 6% per stack. You can use …
