But Bill, aren’t you excited about having a 30m HoT to your Valiant Strike no matter what you’re traited? That’s awesome! Or reducing your attack duration via Blade Brother SoW even further?
Also, by the way, the Thievery and Mischief boss “cleaves” or has a frontal AoE. The fight gets even more complex the larger you make the skirmish; you see four bosses at once that all need separating in the raid skirmish. Nasty horrible diseases and wounds appear (the kind that spread to everyone else if you don’t pot them). The Angmarim boss needs interrupts, and the female Brigand boss heals the others if they are within range. If your metric is number of mechanisms you have to deal with in a fight, the T&M boss fight is superior.
Layanor”s tip about using Crafted Relics to generate shards is the best I have heard yet. That had never occurred to me before and in my opinion makes the pursuit of some of the better ‘melded’ relics a much more viable proposition for alts. It also makes it more realistic to ‘meld’ those relics again when obtaining a new LI vs. feeling obligated to use a Relic Removal Scroll which would have to be purchased from the store! Spending less REAL cash = Tip of the Week goodness!
