Tuesday, November 11th, marked the launch of the new expansion, The Altar of Malice!
Everyone at Aegis has been hard at work leveling and gearing up their characters for the new raids this expansion. We now have a level cap increase to 100 and a whole new set of requirements to be raid ready.
As a reminder, to get raid ready all you need to do are 3 basic things:
- Get new jewelry in all slots (earrings, rings, and wrists). This helps you reach the resists requirements. Running heroics and/or obtaining Mastercrafted jewelry is the best start here.
- Increase you total health pool. Running heroics is best way to do this as they all seem to be dropping armor with increase to max HP% as the default type among other nice things. Don't forget to fully gem the armor too (blue, green, etc.).
- Increase your physical mitigation. Yes, that's right, this is not just a stat for tanks to be only concerned about anymore. Lots of new raid-wide damage-over-time abilities will also include trauma (physical mitigation check). All new armor for every class has increased mitigation by huge amounts compared to some of their counter-parts in the Temple of Veeshan expansion. Bottom line, get new armor from heroics is the easiest to start here.
That's it. Those are the 3 basic things every raider will need to ensure they have met the requirements for on whatever boss they are about to engage. Right now we're recommending people get upwards of 800k hp and 130k resists self buffed. Expect those numbers to climb as we go deeper into the raids, so just aim as high as you can go is the best advice we can give right now.
With that out of the way, we are very happy to report during our first serious attempt at the new raid zones we have killed the first two bosses in Molten Pools! Everyone worked really hard to do this, so great job everyone. Let's keep pushing it forward!
