OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

OSRS – Nightmare Unique Loot Drop Guide

The Nightmare of Ashihama has some great unique loot drops, including an armor set and two formidable weapons.

Whilst out questing for OSRS Gold and glory, you may have come across the Nightmare of Ashihama. Often abbreviated to The Nightmare, this formidable creature found in the Sisterhood Sanctuary, and can drop a series of eye-catching pieces of loot. Before we take a look at what this loot is, you will need to make sure that you have gotten to a point where you can access Morytania. Apart from that, there are no extra requirements needed to fight The Nightmare.

As far as what The Nightmare is, the enemy described as a “large, otherworldly horror” that takes the life force from those who are asleep, which drained until there is no more. This is also said to be the cause of terrifying nightmares, making the name a particularly good fit. Yet, if you do decide to take her on, then you could end up getting one of the following drops.

The OSRS Nightmare Staff

The drop from the Nightmare is described as once belonging to the shamans of Ashihama, though the real name of it has now been lost in translation. If you do manage to get a hold of one, then you will be required to have level 65 Magic, as well as 50 hitpoints School RuneScapes in order to equip it.

What’s more, players are able to attach three different orbs to the staff to give them different abilities. By attaching a Volatile, Harmonised, or Eldritch orb to the staff, you will create a Runescape staff nightmare with a precursor of whichever orb you attached, for example, the Eldritch Nightmare and so on. It is a rare chance of dropping at 0.437%, but with its Magic attack and defense bonuses, its worth keeping an eye on.

Eldritch Orb

As mentioned above, there are three orbs that you can attach to the Nightmare Staff, and these orbs are dropped by The Nightmare also. The orbs are incredibly rare drops, with Eldritch coming in at 0.0972%.

If you do manage to get a hold of one and attach it to Old School Runescape Staff Nightmare, then you can use it to auto-cast offensive standard spells. You will need the same 50 Hitpoints as the staff does to wield but will also need 75 Magic skill to go with it. It can also be used for Ancient Magicks, so it can prove to be very valuable to you.

Harmonised Orb

The chances of a Harmonised Orb dropping is the same as the Eldritch Orb and can be used on The Nightmare Staff to make the Harmonised Nightmare. To wield this OSRS staff nightmare, you will need the same requirement stats as those with the Eldritch Orb. The difference between the two orb staffs is that the Harmonised Staff Nightmare cannot auto-cast Ancient Magicks.

What it does offer however is increased attack speed when casting from the standard OSRS spellbook without any delay. It can also be used in PvP world settings since it isn’t technically classed as a powered staff, which is good news if you ever find yourself in this situation.

Volatile Orb OSRS

The Volatile Orb has the same drop rate as the previous two, and once again has the same wielding requirements. It also works in a similar way of the Eldritch Orb, in that it can auto-cast offensive standard ancient spells and Ancient Magicks when combined to make the Volatile Nightmare Staff.

When this staff is created, it has a special attack known as Immolate. This takes 55% of special attack energy from the player who contributes 50% more accuracy to their range attacks. Naturally, this is going to create a pretty high and accurate amount of damage. Just how much magic damage is caused depends on where your Magic level is at, with a maximum possible hit of 80 when you reach level 99. This is increased to 89 if you find yourself on a Slayer task.

Inquisitor’s Armour Items

There are three Inquisitor’s armor drops that can come from The Nightmare. With the exception of the Inquisitor’s Mace, which we will discuss shortly, there is a 0.291% chance of you getting your hands on them.

Starting with the Great Helm, you will need 70 Strength and 30 Defence in order to equip it. Once you have done so, you will be able to increase your base damage and accuracy if you use crush attacks. This is boosted if you manage to get all of the pieces of the Inquisitor’s armor.

The Inquisitor’s Hauberk has the same requirement stats as the helm as part of the armor sets. By equipping it you will also see the same increases of damage dealt with accuracy, which stands at 0.5%, increasing to 2.5% when equipped with the other pieces of armor. Meanwhile, the final piece of the armor set is the Inquisitor’s Plateskirt. It’s worth mentioning that all these Inquisitor’s items count towards being a Zamorakian item when you are in the God Wars Dungeon.

Inquisitor’s Mace

Finally, there is a mace that can accompany that armor set you’ve just read about. Though it has a rarer drop rate at 0.146% compared to the armor items and Nightmare Staff, it can be a useful item to get a hold of.

Since the armor set has boosts that cater to the crush attack style, it comes in handy that the mace is a crush weapon. You will need 75 Attack in order to wield it, and thankfully doesn’t need any charges, nor does it degrade. As far as its combat stats go, it has a +95 crush bonus, as well as a +52 stab attack bonus. It also has a +89 Strength bonus, so it can prove to be a very effective weapon.

These are the unique drops that you can expect to see from The Nightmare. Each time you kill it there is a chance for you to roll two unique drop tables, which will contain one of each of the items and armor. So whilst you won’t have to fork out your OSRS Gold, you will need to defeat The Nightmare a few times to get the chance to earn all of the items on this list. Having said that, the bonuses with the armor and its overall look is very appealing, so if you are prepared to fight The Nightmare, then be sure to try and get as many of these items as you can.

How to Get PoE Uniques

And build your collection

PoE uniques are pieces of equipment that have unusual effects or different modifiers. Some character builds are based on these effects. They’re not supposed to be stronger than high leveled rare equipment, but they’re a popular PoE trade item. One factor that makes it so is their rarity since outside of some exceptions, they’re rather hard to farm.

Here we’ll be listing a few ways you can increase the chances of getting one. Then you can even sell them to get PoE currency from trading!

Play the Game

Generally, simply playing the game will give you PoE unique items. All kinds of enemies or destructible objects have a chance to drop a unique. It’s a small chance, but it’s there. It’s also random, so you don’t know which one you’re going to get.

The level of the item you can get depends on the level and rarity of the monsters you’re fighting. Say the item is level 40. Normal monsters in level 40+ maps will drop that, magic/rare/unique monsters in level 39 maps will drop it, and level 38 rare/unique monsters will drop it.

PoE Orbs of Chance

This PoE orb has a chance of transforming a PoE item into a Path of Exile unique form. For example, using it on a sword might give you a PoE unique sword. It will not turn into armor or another type of weapon. Since certain unique items are league-specific, you will need the relevant map mods to get those. The chances of this succeeding are quite low, so you might need a few tries to be successful.

Vaal Orbs

Some unique items ‘corrupted’ and Vaal Orbs give you a chance to get them. This is mostly for unique jewels and some equipment.

Prophecies

Some prophecies award you with unique items after fulfilling them. A majority of the ones that ask you to hunt down a certain enemy and defeat it will do so. There’s also “The Mysterious Gift” prophecy, which gives you a random unique when you trade in five others to a vendor.

Vendor Recipes

You can trade in some items to get a unique from a vendor. These PoE uniques are unavailable through other methods. They’re not included in the world drop pool and Orb of Chance or Vaal Orbs won’t result in these uniques. The level of the item received from this method depends on the lowest level of the items traded-in.

Divination Cards

Some of these items (such as the Tabula Rasa) are rewards from Divination Cards. Like the Vendor Recipe ones, these uniques can’t be found in other methods.

Event Competition Rewards

Some event competitions may award unique items to the winners. Note that not all events will have this kind of reward.

PoE Trade

Of course, you can just trade with other people for these items. However, prices may be a little high because of the difficulty of getting some specific ones.

And that’s all the sources of PoE uniques in the game. Have fun building up your collection of these items!

Raiding Can Wait: What to Do Before Blackwing Lair Drops in WoW Classic

Raiding Can Wait: What to Do Before Blackwing Lair Drops in WoW Classic

Contrary to what WoW’s PVE culture has become, there is more to WoW Classic than just raiding… and then eagerly waiting for the next raid to come. Fittingly enough, with Phase 3 inbound, WoW Classic will have Blackwing Lair soon. So, aside from raiding current dungeons and amassing WoW Classic Gold, what are other things can you do before the not-so-new content hits?

Here’s a list for that.

The Class Struggle

While Blackwing Lair is the content players are most excited about, there’s more to Phase 3 than that. In fact, there are other equally important things coming, and among them are class quests.

Aside from the fact that this will lead players to the Sunken Temple, it will also give them a chance to choose between three items. Each of them has pros and cons, so choose wisely. But don’t focus on just the dungeon or the item you will get from it. Rather, brush up on the quests as a whole so you can better prepare for them.

Dancing in the Moonlight

You can enter a raid any time, although there’s not much point doing so if you’ve already hit the lockout. Then other events aren’t exactly time-limited, but you don’t exactly have round-the-clock access to them. A good example of that is the Darkmoon Faire.

This regular event, which will give you the chance to buy items you won’t be able to find anywhere else, happens only once a month. Thankfully, it lasts a week, but it’s still easy to miss out on if you happen to be too busy with other content.

There are all sorts of trinkets for sale, and many of them give considerable boosts. And if you’re either a priest or a druid, the trinket Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon is a must-buy, as it grants a 2% chance of getting 100% mana regeneration after casting a spell. This effect lasts for 15 seconds. With how often these two classes cast spells because of their support role, it’s going to be quite the help.

Getting Ready

If you really can’t take raiding off your mind, here’s a good way to do something different but related to it: preparing consumables for it. While waiting for Blackwing Lair to arrive, start farming for these items now, so that you can just focus on raiding later on, and then do other things aside from farming once you got locked down.

If you’re a tank, there’s another raiding-related preparation you should be doing now: installing a threat meter. Because most bosses in Blackwing Lair can’t be taunted, you’re going to have to hold their aggro the old-fashioned way. If you don’t have a threat meter, this can get quite tricky.

Thankfully, there are lots of threat meters you can find online, and most of them are for free. It takes less than an hour to download and install a meter, so the hardest thing to do when it comes to installing them is opening your browser and hitting that download button.

Last but not least, get yourself the Onyxia Scale Cloak. Without it, you won’t be able to fight the black drake bosses in the raid, as they have the deadly ability called Shadowflame, which deals massive damage over time.

To get one, you have to turn over Onyxia’s head to Bolvar Fordragon. You’ll find him at the Stormwind Keep.

Don’t just slack off while you wait for the Blackwing Lair to drop; do the things we recommend. Trust us, you’ll be better off for it. So, which of these things are you going to do first? Let us know!

We’re All Crazy for Path of Exile Delirium Newest Expansion!

Fall into your exile’s delirium and nightmare in Path of Exile‘s newest league. Like with the other expansions, Delirium brings new mechanics, new PoE skills, items, and PoE orbs to the fold. More than that, there will be updates to the base game as well.

Here’s a look at all the interesting bits about the expansion.

Dive into Your Nightmare

Delirium’s core mechanic is the appearance of Mirrors of Delirium. Past it, you’ll encounter the world of Delirium. A thick fog covers this world, changing the appearance and behavior of existing enemies (including bosses) and adding new ones. The farther away you get from the mirror, the harder it will be to survive. However, that’s also where the greatest rewards can be found!

It lets you control how far you want the challenge to go. There is always the option to retreat and let the fog dissipate. The Mirrors are usually near the beginning of maps, allowing you to progress throughout the entirety of it through the fog. That means that bosses will have a double dose of difficulty thrown at you. Specifically, they’re deep within the fog, and they’re unpredictable due to its influence. Story bosses aren’t exempt from this rule.

With these new mechanics, the expansion also introduces Orbs of Delirium. Use these orbs on maps to increase their difficulty. Different kinds also increase the likelihood of you obtaining certain rewards. Mix and match to balance the challenge and what you can get from it. How deep will you go in your Delirium?

Everything New in This Expansion

Other than this exciting new mechanic, there are several new additions to the game.

PoE Skills

Two new skills are introduced, but there will be four new ones at launch. Also, there will be three new support gems as well. The two introduced skills are Blade Burst and Kinetic Bolt.

Blade Burst lets you detonate blades from your skills. It pairs well with skills such as Bladefall, Blade Vortex, and Ethereal Knives. Add in a ‘Cast on…’ support gem and watch your enemies fall. Also, the expansion finally lets you cast ‘Animate Weapon’ on the same kind of blades.

Kinetic Bolt is a mesmerizing wand attack that fires a bolt that zigzags as it flies. If you pair it with Barrage Support, you can watch the bolts weave through waves of enemies in artistic patterns.

Look forward to the rest, as these are promising new additions!

Unique Items

There are two PoE uniques to come, Algor Mortis and Perfidy.

The former is a pair of Carnal Mitts. Its effects focus on inflicting the Sap ailment on enemies affected by your chilling areas.  What’s more, it increases your Lightning Damage for those same enemies. It also adds 70 points to your Energy Shield, and increases the effects of non-damaging ailments.

The latter is a Glorious Plate that allows you to carry two different banners at the same time. Then it allows you to increase both of their stages by hitting enemies with melee. It has further enhancements for War and Dread Banners. Lastly, it also modifies Melee Damage and Maximum Life.

Cluster Jewels and Extending the Passive Skill Tree

This is perhaps the most interesting addition of the expansion. Enemies found in the fog of Delirium may drop these rare jewels that can expand your passive skill tree. That means more opportunities to customize your builds, and you can even chain them up to three times. Some of them will even give you a passive skill, from a pool of 280 new ones.

What’s even more interesting is that they are craftable! You can reroll the stats and modifiers of these jewels to suit your needs. Theory crafters and build enthusiasts will go crazy at all the new opportunities these jewels can provide.

A Mysterious Figure

While exploring the fog and destroying enemies, you might find some Simulacrum Splinters. Collecting 100 of these will let you open a portal to a Simulacrum. These are the endgame bosses of the league, so be prepared before you try challenging them.

They also seem to hold the mysteries of the fog. Will you brave your nightmares for victory, or fall prey to your fear before ever reaching the end?

Delirious with Excitement

The Delirium League is coming to the game on March 13th. Soon, you’ll be lost in the fog, gathering all these cool Path of Exile uniques, PoE items, and skills. As you wait until it gets released, you can continue to farm for PoE currency such as Chaos Orbs. Other than that, continue enjoying Path of Exile.

Have fun, before your nightmare awakens and delirium fills Wraeclast!

POE Delirium: Builds and Farming Methods

While Path of Exile: Delirium didn’t exactly make Wraeclast bigger, it definitely put new things in it—effectively changing the game forever. With the challenges it brought forth came fresh builds and ways of getting rich. Read up on what these are so that you can make the most of the league!

Crazy As It Sounds

In the POE Delirium league, exiles will find that there is a mirror of Delirium in every map. If they choose to enter it, the monsters in the area become stronger. It also causes the monsters to drop Simulacrum splinters.

Gather 300 Simulacrum splinters to form a Simulacrum, a map fragment that will open a portal that could lead to any of these six locations: Lunacy’s Watch, The Bridge Enraptured, The Syndrome Encampment, Hysteriagate, or Oriath Delusion. There, you’ll have the opportunity to get great rewards. Currently, the most sought-after are Cluster Jewels, which gives players further passive skill tree customization.

Built For the New Challenge

Aside from the enemies in PoE Delirium league being stronger than the usual ones, there are also loads of them. Unlike Metamorph league that had much focus on single-target boss killing, there’s now a return to dealing with hordes upon hordes of enemies that will Zerg rush you. This means PoE builds whose Rare and PoE Uniques are geared for multiple targets or AoE skills are making a comeback. Then again, it’s not like they ever disappeared in the first place anyway.

There are many POE build types that are specifically geared for the league that players can choose from. Most of them are Duelist ascendancy classes and Hierophants, but there are also from other classes.

More specific suggestions are as follows:

  • Cyclone Impale Champion – a spin-to-win melee build that deals good AoE damage on top of its survivability. A must-try for players with this particular class.
  • Lacerate Gladiator – another melee build, it’s as versatile as it is tough, as it’s been viable since Patch 3.8. Although it takes much time and requires Bladestorm to level up, it’s pretty much worth it once you switch to the Axe/Shield setup and get Lacerate.
  • Storm Brand Hierophant – an unorthodox AoE spellcaster build, it allows players to have some freedom to move and cast other spells while brands do the damage-dealing on their behalf.
  • Miner Builds – mechanics for mine skills fine-tuned for the better in Patch 3.9, thus renewing its popularity and viability. And in Path of Exile Delirium, it continues to enjoy the same love and efficiency. Common choices include the Ball Lightning Miner and the Toxic Rain Miner, which are either Saboteur or Trickster.
  • SRS Necromancer – last but definitely not least is the SRS Necromancer. While Necromancer builds are ever-popular and universal, this specific build has slightly more focus on offense than the usual balance between offense, defense, and utility.

Literally Insane Farming

Last, but definitely not least, once you have a solid build, Delirium is a great way to farm for POE Currency. They have lowered the chances of you getting killed in one shot by a monster, shortened its life, and increased the drop rate of monsters, especially when it comes to PoE orbs for your POE trade.

For farming sites, old ones like Blood Aqueduct and Harbor Bridge still work like a charm. There are also maps, which is a better way to farm PoE currency. However, they require more creativity and better gear. Maps like Beach and Glacier are the more recommended ones among the many that you can farm in.

There you have it–the Path of Exile mechanics, builds, and farming methods for Delirium. So, what are you waiting for? There’s no better time to start taking on this challenge league than right now!

A Simple Guide to WoW Classic’s Blackwing Lair Raid

A Simple Guide to WoW Classic’s Blackwing Lair Raid

Simple doesn’t mean short, though

WoW Classic Blackwing Lair Raid

WoW Classic’s The Blackwing Lair has eight bosses your group will have to defeat. Each of them has mechanics and attacks to keep track of and have coinciding measures against. There’s also the ‘Suppression Room’ which was the first raid gauntlet in the history of World of Warcraft. Everything you need to do in the raid is a delicate balance requiring teamwork, coordination, and communication to get through.

The rewards are numerous, from awesome pieces of gear to some amount of WoW Classic gold. There’s also the resulting camaraderie and undeniable feeling of accomplishment in completing such a difficult raid. Without further ado, here are the bosses, and how you can deal with them.

Razorgore the Untamed

The first hurdle of the raid isn’t too hard to defeat, as long as you know what you’re doing. What your group needs to do in order is:

  • Take control of the orb on the left side of the room
  • Use mind-controlled Razorgore to destroy eggs
  • Then defeat him

Of course, it isn’t that simple in practice. Rush to the Orb of Domination and nuke its guardian, making it available to use. Minions appear as you try to destroy eggs, requiring the rest of the group to split into four to cover more ground. Each group must have a good distribution of off-tanks, DPS, and healers. Then, when it’s time to defeat him, ranged attackers should run and hide behind a pillar near the mind-controlled orb. That way, they get to avoid the damage from his Fireball Volley, while still staying in range.

Melee attackers and tanks need a Free Action Potion, as Razorgore will stomp and disorient players in range. If you want to keep the damage up, the potion is necessary to continue the onslaught.

It is necessary to have your main tank take control of Razorgore, as once he breaks free of the mind control, he will target whoever controlled him last. Also, have at least two tanks with the most threats on him, since he is immune to taunts. Have them build up aggro, so he won’t go out of control once a Conflagration happens.

Vaelastrasz the Corrupt

You’ll want to defeat him as fast as you possibly can. The group will not survive a war of attrition against him. It’s a good thing a buff called ‘Essence of the Red’ applies to everybody in the room once the fight starts. The benefit it gives is unlimited resources. Spam all of your max level spell and abilities to defeat him as fast as possible.

The reason for that is the other buff that will apply to only one character, Burning Adrenaline. While it doubles the damage dealt and negates cast time, it reduces health every second until death. Upon death, they explode, dealing massive damage to whoever’s nearby. Anyone who gets it should still deal as much damage (or healing) as they can while moving away from the others. If you take too long, your main tank will get it, and they will die no matter what.

Since the boss is also immune to taunts, you need an off-tank to keep control of him. Fury WarriorsHeroic Strike is good for this if they’re the off-tank. Others with the same class should use Cleave instead to keep their threat down. At any rate, if the whole group has high enough DPS, Vaelastrasz should go down pretty quickly.

Broodlord Lashlayer

Broodlord Lashlayer waits at the end of the Suppression Room, which you’ll have to get through to fight him. Getting through the room is a dance of kiting and defeating Hatchers and Taskmasters, disabling pylons, and running to the next safe spot. It’s more complicated than that, but it’ll take too long to describe here.

Fighting the boss, everybody should be positioned with their backs against the wall, even the boss. That way, when he uses Blast Wave, nobody gets flying back into the Suppression Room. The other mechanic to watch out for is Knock Away, which targets your tank and reduces their threat by half. Again, off-tanks should have the second or third most threat. Keep the tanks alive and threatening, sustain the DPS, and you should have no trouble defeating him.

Firemaw, Ebonroc, and Flamegor

These three drakes have similar mechanics, though they have a different third mechanic. All three of them can cast Shadowflame, so an Onyxia Scale Cloak is required for these bosses. They also have the Wing Buffet ability, which reduces threat on your tanks.

Firemaw has the Flame Buffet ability, which casts a stacking debuff on whoever gets hit. Ebonroc gets the Shadow of Ebonroc ability that casts a rather un-dispellable debuff on your tank. The debuff heals him for 25,000 points for every melee hit. Flamegor has the Fire Nova ability, which can be interrupted by a hunter’s Tranquilizing Shot.

So, the scale cloak counters Shadowflame and having tanks time their taunts counters Wing Buffet. For Flame Buffet, have two cycling groups for everybody. As one group hides to wait out the debuff, the other goes in range to fight or heal. The drakes are taunt-able, so you can have your main tank hide to wait out the debuff while an off-tank taunts him.

The strategy for Ebonroc’s unique ability is to have an off-tank taunt him if the debuff lands on the main tank. The main can then taunt him back if the off gets it. The tactic for Flamegor is to have hunters interrupt his Fire Novas.

There is a position that lets healers be in the line of sight of the tanks yet hidden to avoid getting Flame Buffet stacks. If your group finds it, healers don’t have to move to do their job.

Chromaggus

As befitting the second to the last boss of the raid, Chromaggus has many mechanics your group has to manage and counter. First are his breath attacks. He has five, though he can only use two breaths for every instance of the raid.

They are:

  • Incinerate: deals high fire damage in a cone in front of him
  • Corrosive acid: inflicts a damage over time debuff and reduces armor for its duration
  • Frost Burn: deals low frost damage and reduces attack speed for a short time
  • Ignite Flesh: similar to Incinerate, but has lower damage that can stack
  • Time Lapse: Stuns targets for 6 seconds, leaving half their health and reducing threat permanently

They’re also color-coded as red, green, blue, black, and bronze in the same order. He’ll let out a breath every 30 seconds, so with about 5 to 10 seconds left of the cast, everyone should run and hide. The main tank should backpedal to keep aggro yet avoid the breath, and healers should keep healing them.

When you read through these breaths, you’ll notice that the last one is something you don’t want to get as a mechanic in your raid. Have potentially four back-up tanks to keep the aggro off of the squishier characters if you ever get it. Switch up the tanks and carefully manage threat so everyone can do their jobs.

The second mechanic to look out for is his debuffs. There are also five and they’re color-coded as well.

  • Brood Affliction Red deals fire damage every 3 seconds and heals Chromaggus if the character dies from it
  • Brood Affliction Green reduces healing by half and deals nature damage every 5 seconds
  • Brood Affliction Blue slows movement and casting speed, and drains health and mana
  • Brood Affliction Black doubles fire damage received
  • Brood Affliction Bronze stuns the afflicted every 4 seconds and can only be removed by using Hourglass Sand

Dispel the afflictions constantly. Since the debuffs are all different types, any class with a dispelling ability should use whatever they have. Anyone who gets all five gets morphed into a hostile Drakonid that can wipe the whole party. The morphed character can be killed, but the act will also heal the boss.

The next mechanic is frenzy. Emotes alert you of when he’ll start it, which is when hunters should use Tranquilizing Shot to stop. Have 3 or 4 hunters on that duty, as the bronze affliction’s stun might take effect at that moment.

The last is Chromaggus’ magic vulnerability. Throughout the fight, he’ll shimmer, and the chat would say “Chromaggus flinches as its skin shimmers”. After the emote, he’ll become intensely vulnerable to a certain school of magic. Magic classes should find out what it is, and use that school of magic for their next spells. Because of the vulnerability, even weaker spells deal good enough damage. In a situation where they don’t have that kind of spell, a wand that deals that kind of damage will do.

Keep all of these in mind while dealing damage, and defeat Chromaggus!

Nefarian, the Lord of Blackwing Lair

Now, you’re up against the final boss of the raid. Before you’re able to, you’ll have to defeat his minions first. They’ll come from two sides, and you can split your group to deal with them both. Mages can make up one group, as one side will have frost resistant dragon and worm kin. Have the rest of the DPS handle those, and have the mages handle the other side.

At some point, Nefarian will come down in his human form and cast Shadow Volleys. Drink a Shadow Protection Potion to counter those, and continue defeating the minions.

Soon, he’ll turn into his dragon form and the real fight begins. Wearing the Onyxia Scale Cloak will take care of the brunt of his version of Shadow Flame. Again, tanks have to keep aggro and keep to his sides. Position him facing the far end of the balcony. He inflicts a debuff on whoever’s closest which reduces healing. Dispel it immediately if on the tank. He can also cast fear in a circle around him, so Fearwards, Tremor Totems, or changing stances are important in the fight.

His most annoying ability is the Class Call. It has different effects depending on which class is called, and everybody must be prepared to deal with them when they come.

Here are the actions classes should do when their call arrives:

  • Druids should stay back
  • Hunters should switch or unequip their weapons
  • Mages can cast Ice Block, or Priests and Paladins have to be on the ball to dispel polymorphed allies
  • For Paladins’ call, everybody should stop attacks, as no threat will be generated at the time. If it is well established, cast Judgement of Wisdom on him and magic users can attack him with wands
  • Priests must stop healing with direct spells. They may use Renew and Power Word: Shield.
  • As for Rogues’ call, tanks should carefully reposition the boss to avoid the annihilation of the group’s Rogues
  • When Shamans’ call comes, have all DPS be on totem killing duty. Shamans should wait until the call ends to regenerate mana
  • Kill the Corrupted Infernals that will appear during Warlocks’ call
  • Everybody should watch their threat and healers intensify their healing on the tanks for the Warrior Call. When it’s over Warriors can go back to the stance they want

At 20% health, Nefarian will raise the minions you defeated at the beginning as Bone Constructs. Defeat them while managing the calls and debuffs. Alliance groups will have a bit of advantage as the constructs are considered undead. They’ll go down easily with enough preparation. When they’re done, everybody can go back for one final push to defeating Nefarian!

With that, your group has finished the raid. Enjoy the sweet loot and WoW Classic gold as rewards. Preparation is key, so make sure you know what you’re supposed to be doing. Don’t forget to have fun while doing the raid!

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

OSRS Mobile Resolution Guide

Old School Runescape (OSRS) mobile has introduced a brand new audience to the wonderful world of Gielinor. Because of the new platform switch, there may be players who have run into issues while playing the game. One issue, in particular, revolves around the resolution of the handheld device. With that in mind, here is a short guide to help you make the most of your experience on OSRS Mobile. Pay close attention and you will be slaying demons and racking up all the OSRS Gold you can get your hands on in no time at all!

Performance Fixes

If your game is running low on performance, then there are a few ways for you to rectify it. Some of these methods may sound utterly simplistic at first glance, but they are tried-and-tested ways of fixing key performance issues.

The first fix is a classic that many of will most likely have already tried when it comes to technology in general. This method involves turning your device on and off again. This technique may be greeted with a pained groan but it can actually help with your resolution. This is because it can help your device with slow data speeds, so it is definitely worth trying straight off the bat.

Another issue revolves around data and storage. Both of these need to be able to cater to your particular device. With that being said you need to make sure that your platform has enough storage space. Without the correct storage space, your game may lag midway. Even though the app itself clocks in at just under 100mb, the numbers can increase following updates. As far as data goes, you should try to find a WiFi connection wherever possible. OSRS Mobile uses up to 2mb of data on average per hour, so connecting to WiFi could help your performance woes and save the amount of data you are using.

Tablets vs. Mobile

When OSRS was announced for mobile platforms, it raised a lot of questions. One of those being what devices we would be able to use them on. Given that the game is over a decade-and-a-half old, many assumed it would run on any handheld device. This yet is not strictly true.

OSRS Mobile, as the name suggests, is focused on the mobile experience. When it comes to tablets, it may run into some issues where performance is concerned. That isn’t to say that it won’t run smoothly on a tablet, but there will be certain devices that it may not be streamlined enough on. For the time being, you should focus on keeping OSRS on your mobile and research if your tablet is capable of running it without issue.

Battery Performance

Battery life is something else you’ll need to keep an eye on to get the most out of your OSRS Mobile experience. This is something that the developers have outlined when it comes to the performance of the game on mobile. So there are a few settings you can tinker with to make the most of OSRS Mobile.

Firstly, you can increase the game’s runtime by reducing the brightness on your phone. It would also help your battery life, and game performance if you close any background apps you have running. If your resolution is suffering too, then try to avoid areas where you will find a lot of other players. This will also help your battery life from draining too much. Finally, you can also alter your FPS settings within the game. You can find this under Mobile Options where you will see a bar that says Limit FPS. You could choose to lower this to help your battery life and the performance of the game.

These few tips should help you with your resolution on OSRS Mobile. Many will have come across issues such as lagging, and battery performance. Others may have noticed screen res lowering throughout their experience with the popular handheld MMO. Now that you have a better idea of how the resolution can be optimized, you are ready to run the game. So get out there, traverse dungeons, and shower yourself in all the OSRS Gold you can find!

 

A Dummy’s Guide to Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2

A Dummy’s Guide to Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2

 

Chapter 2: Season 2 of Fortnite finally landed just as February is about to close. Season 1 was a bit of a drag, especially for players who game on Battle Royale Fortnite daily. It was hard to say what Epic Games had in store for us, but now that the cat’s finally out of the bag, we can dive straight into the goods. So what’s the theme for this new season? Will there be any changes in the map and added Fortnite items that can alter the way we play the game? Find out the answer to those questions and so much more!

New Seasons Means New Skins

Every new season in Epic Games Fortnite comes with high-quality Fortnite skins and new emotes that players can flaunt whenever they gain a victory. It’s only the start of Chapter 2: Season 2, so only a limited number of skins have currently been announced—but there should be more to follow during mid-season and some surprise twists that weren’t expected. Currently, here’s the line-up of skins that you can get through the Battle Pass immediately and/or by grinding until you’ve reached a certain level in the pass:

  • Gears Specialist Maya
  • Agent Peely
  • Meowscles
  • TNTina
  • Brutus
  • Skye
  • Midas
  • Deadpool

You can also earn the gold variants for these skins by leveling up while the season is still ongoing. Here are the levels that you need to reach before the season ends to acquire the skins:

Skin Level That You Need
Brutus (gold variant) Level 140
Meowscles (gold variant) Level 180
TNTina (gold variant) Level 220
Skye (gold variant) Level 260
Agent Peely (gold variant) Level 300

There are also back blings that you can collect should you purchase the Battle Pass. These accessories go together with the designated skins that we’ve just discussed. For example, the Banana Briefcase accessory goes well with Agent Peely. While the Feline Pack is meant for Meowscles. However, you don’t really have automatically pair these backpacks to the skins that they’re meant to go with. If you’d rather mix and match to create your own style, the option is also available.

What’s The Theme for This Season?

The theme for Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 revolves around spies, secret agents, and being able to create your own narrative with the choices that you make. The interface of the battle pass has been revamped into a headquarters for spies, with the background music sounding like something that came out of a James Bond movie.

During the introduction of the new season, you’ll be given a choice between the two competing factions to join:Ghost and Shadow. Whichever faction you choose will ultimately set the tone for the rest of the game as you’ll get to unlock different variants of the Battle Pass skins that we mentioned. Another highlight of Season 2 is that you can battle bosses within the game. Raiding some of the spy headquarters that can be found all around the map can reward you with the best weapons that the game can offer.

What We Didn’t Expect

If there’s one thing that we didn’t expect, it’s the collaboration between Fortnite and Marvel. Granted Epic Games has already teamed up with them in the past, specifically during the launch of the movie “Avengers: Endgame”. The collaboration between these two ended up being one of the best things to happen for Fortnite Battle Royale players as it brought Thanos to the game. Plus, players got to use the Infinity Gauntlet (at least for a while). This time, Deadpool will be an unlockable skin that players can use in-game!

Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 2 is just getting started, and with so many new Fortnite items and skins along the way, who knows what’ll pop up next? So, what’s your favorite thing about the new season so far? Let us know by leaving a comment below!
