City of Angels

by on Jan.27, 2010, under General

I too finally picked up [item]Nibelung[/item].  There’s been a flurry of activity throughout the forums and DPS blogosphere about the stats for the Nibelung, so I won’t bore you too much.  I’ll try to touch on the main moonkin items:

  1. Many abilities proc Nibelung.  These include [item]Glyph of Starfall[/item], [spell]Earth and Moon[/spell], and [spell]Languish[/spell].  That means when Lunar Eclipse is active, you effectively have quadrupled your proc-rate for the Val’kyrs.  (The proc rate is 1%. This assumes you have 4pc T10).
  2. The val’kyrs currently do not enjoy the same AoE avoidance as hunter pets, treants, etc.  However, it seems just like pets, there are some fights in which they are immune to certain AoE damage.  (Festergut being an example).
  3. [item]Glyph of Starfall[/item] may be a wise replacement for [item]Glyph of Insect Swarm[/item].  I’m currently testing it out.  Starfall is great at forcing the Nibelung to proc.
  4. After about 7 minutes on a heroic training dummy, (about 3 million damage worth), the Val’kyrs were 8.2% of my damage.  My treants were about 3.6%.

There are some fights the Val’kyr get absolutely raped, so it’s handy to have a good MH/OH combination ready.  Blood Queen Lana’thel is one of those fights.

    Grats on the new staff :)

    On an off topic note; is the title of your post a reference to the lyrics of the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ song ‘Under the Bridge’?

    Or am I thinking way too much..

    It’s really not any specific reference. Los Angeles is the city of angels, but in this case, I was in a city (Ironforge), spawning angels from the staff.
