I received a lot of positive feedback from my first attempt at a narrated guide (thank you, everyone!), so I’ve been working through some of the other encounters that I’ve taken footage for and have started adding commentary to them as well. The next encounter that I decided to tackle was Heroic Magmaw, and you’ll find the video below. As I did with the Chimaeron guide, I realized after I’d finished recording that I forgot to mention a few things in the commentary so I’ve added a few notes additional notes below.
Just a friendly reminder that this video will be viewed best at one of the higher resolution, and probably a tad larger. Because of the way wordpress auto embeds, I’ve yet to find a way to embed the videos in a larger viewing size.
A few notes that I forgot to mention in the video (one of these times I’ll say everything I mean to say!)
- Tree of Life – I mentioned that I use ToL fairly early in the encounter, but then don’t talk about when I utilize it after that. The answer is pretty much every time it comes off of cooldown, as long as we aren’t in a head phase. There is constant damage in the fight, so you will generally always be able to maximize using it.
- Barkskin – Something that I forgot to mention is that using barkskin for as many of the lava spews as you can will really help mitigate a lot of damage.
- Power Word: Barrier – While not druid related, I meant to mention that while our disc priests bubble the ranged and healers, we do drop barriers on the melee for lava spew as often as we can. This is a little less important since the hotfixes went in, as the melee are no longer in a constant state of being barbequed, but the mitigation is still extremely helpful!
I hope that you found the video helpful! Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any feedback or questions!
