I thought I would put together a little mini-guide for basically all dungeons and silver runs. It will be pretty basic stuff, with hopefully some new things you might learn or realize.
- If red is underneath you, GTFO as fast as possible. I know this sounds a little basic, but any damage you are taking is more stress for your healer. Even if you think you can get that last cast off before the telegraph “goes off”, move. In many instances it is just a quick dodge roll and Boom Shabam you are back in there rolling face.
- Utilize Moments of Opportunity. As much as you don’t want to bring that t4 interrupt, shave some precious time off of that 30 minute run by bringing it. Set up an interrupt rotation with your group. This is mainly for trash pulls.
Interrupt Number 1: Brings 3 interrupts (Warrior dps/Slinger) or 2 interrupts from one class and one from your healer
Interrupt Number 2: Tank (1 iA) + DPS2(2 iA)
Interrupt Number 3: Tank (2 iA) + DPS3(1 iA)
You will want to see who is running how many Intterupts before you start the run, but having a rotation and trusting people to get their interrupts off will really help you breeze through trash and on some case bosses.
Another bit of general advice. If you take damage and there is no debuff or subsequent telegraph following the ability aimed at you… Run to your healer. The guy/lady is working hard to keep your tank alive so don’t make their life a living hell by running away and making them chase you for heals (unless you are gonna get whalloped by more red obviously). Also it does not hurt to stand in line with your tank and healer so you get to soak up some of those big ticket heals.
Bring consumables. Always, always have at least 25 medishots on you along with primary stat food. They are cheap and will save your life and maximize your damage. I can not tell you how many times a medishot has saved my life when I have been on the other side of a gaping abyss of red thinking one more hit could take Klutchh six feet under.
Last thing. Keep active communication through every fight. “My interrupts are out” “I can get next interrupt with one help” “Interrupt, Interrupt, Interrupt! (big ticket casts)” “Group up for heals” etc. etc.
Hope some of this may help some of you who are about to get your feet wet in silvers. Enjoy the dred of putting your face in the dirt multiple times, cause once you get your first silver you will realize “Hey that wasn’t so bad”.
Do yo thing cupcakes.
