Brawler’s Guild

A while ago, Cool managed to farm his Blood-Soaked Invitation from one of the Alliance rares in Krasarang Wilds. After reaching Rank 7, he gave me his Brawler’s Pass so I could start fighting my way to Rank 4 – but not before earning me The First Rule of Brawler’s Guild.

However, I was feeling some trepidation about doing the fights. Having seen Coolidge and others doing some of them earlier, it seemed easy enough but being more of a healer than a shadow priest, I had my doubts about getting past the first fight, especially in front of an audience.

As Cool progressed through his ranks, I managed to get I’m Your Number One Fan and Bottle Service done.

So today I took the plunge and queued for the very first time. It’s no surprise that these are aimed at DPSers as it seems like a good way to test your situational skills and reaction times but I was intrigued about trying the first fight as Discipline. It didn’t end too well so I switched to Shadow and queued again.

Rank 1


I must say the fight went a lot better earning me the achievement – You Are Not Your $#*@! Legplates.

Bruce: All I had to do was sidestep to avoid his Chomp.

Vian the Volatile: A mogu who shoots fireballs and casts Fire Line which is easy to dodge.

Goredome: I couldn’t believe how easy this one was with his charge really easy to avoid.

Dungeon Master Vishas: One of my all-time favourite vanilla bosses, I just kept my dots up and ran when he cast Heated Pokers on himself.

Honestly, Rank 1 turned out to be a bit of a blur as I pretty much one-shot the bosses except for my false start on Bruce.

Rank 2


Dippy:  I heard this penguin was a bit of a tough one but I just kept dots on him and pretty much stayed on the move to avoid his Peck ability.


Kirrawk: I needed a practice run on this one but as long as I kept him between his Twisters and me, it was an easy fight – otherwise you’ll be knocked in the air and likely die from his Lightning Flurry (unless you heal/disperse). This fight made me squeal A LOT!

Fran and Riddoh: I gave this one a couple of tries opting to kill Riddoh first but his bomb damage got me in the end.

Not bad for a first day, if I don’t say so myself. All-in-all, these were a lot more enjoyable than I’d expected. Thx to Cool for being my constant cheerleader and supporter – letting me know what to expect for each fight beforehand – I think I need to mog a cheerleader set for him. Now I just need to get past this one and the next five so I can get my Clock’em pet :)

Good luck on those last few matches to get your pet! I stopped doing the Brawler’s Guild as soon as I got mine, but I should probably get back in there and fight my way to Rank 7 for the achievement.

Hiya Cym-Thanks for the info on this one. I’ve been thinking about going back for a second try, the first did not go well, lol!
Grats on your success’ :)

I finally bought an invite from the BMAH for 2k last week on my hunter. I’d been dubious about trying it on my Priest as like you I typically play Holy or Disc, I only use Shadow for the occasional daily. I was worried that I’d never be able to do enough DPS. What I didn’t know was that when You join the Brawlers guild all of your characters join so I can do it on my Hunter and obv still get the achievements on my Priest main and it’s way less scary!

Congrats on the rank! I know exactly how you feel with being a priest myself when I did this. I think I will probably end up finishing it on another character, I am stuck on Rank5 with the Yeti boss, can’t do enough DPS on my priesty :(

I think Dippy has been nerfed. He was much more difficult on the PTR.

I need to get back in there. I’m stuck on Mazhareen.

@Socco Interesting, I’ll have to try on some of my other toons.

    Thx all.

    Cool – that and pink pigtails to match.

    Arv – I might do the same, see how I go with rank 4 first :P

    Ay – Best of luck then.

    Soco – Yeah I heard about that. I love getting my achievements on my priest and will see how far I can get with her first.

    Kaitz – I’m wondering how far I will get. My set is not the best but so far so good. :)

    Zal – GL with the rest of yours.
