Posts tagged Brawler's Rank
It’s been a while since I defeated GG Engineering so today I took the last flask I had been saving to see if I could clear the rank within the hour.
Dark Summoner – Use the spotlight to stun the ghosts and DPS them ASAP. Each ghost killed removes the invulnerability shield around the Dark Summoner for ~15secs so save your CDs for that time. Just don’t get too close to the ghosts or you’ll get one-shot as their range is pretty far. Rinse, repeat.
Battletron – Stay at maximum range while saving your defensive CDs for the explosions. I also tried a few talent swaps to help out with any instant casts using From Darkness, Comes Light, Divine Insight and Desperate Prayer for some added insurance.
Meatball – This guy packs a punch when he’s MEATBALL MAD! so stack as many orbs as you can for the Strange Energy buff. I managed to get 44 stacks before I finished him off. I used Mindbender for that extra bit of OOMPH!
Completing Rank 7 gives the Brawlin’ and Shot Callin’ achievement as well as the Brawler title. You also gain access to a special VIP area as well as another fist weapon for a cost of 2175 Justice Points.

I was determined to defeat this duo since I’ll most likely be busy on the Timeless Isle tomorrow. Max and Bo would have to be the most difficult fight for this rank, much like Yikkan Izu from Rank 6. After getting a lot of close attempts and trying out different talents and glyphs, I ended up using Halo, Inner Sanctum and Psychic Scream.
In the end I died a couple of seconds after I had killed them but worse still – I wasn’t recording the attempt!! OMG! Just as well I recorded the others so I could show my basic strategy.
Phew, I’m so glad that one’s over although I’m so used to getting a shirt and a big sack of gold, it took a second to remember this wasn’t a challenge fight. :P
Now bring on the patch! I’m just a little disappointed that I didn’t get a chance to clean out my bags before tomorrow especially since I was just taking to Euphy about it earlier =/
Holy Crap! I was having a pretty difficult time on this Anzu look-alike but after a number of attempts here and there, I was in the mood to give him a solid attempt today.
Yikkan Izu – My main issues were missing/getting caught in his screech or being overrun by birds. Then when I managed to get him to 23%, 8% and then 2% (with a few dodgy attempts in between), I knew it was close but I was getting quite antsy because I missed his screech a couple of times. If I wasn’t bubbled, I didn’t fare so well but it also depended on how many birds were up at the time. To be sure I caught his first screech on the next attempt, I slowed my rotation down just waiting for his cast.
This boss can be feared and rooted so I used those to keep at range while silencing his first Disorienting Shriek. Just make sure you don’t get overrun by birds as this can happen very quickly if you’re not careful. Killing more than five will enrage him but he is still killable if you are on the ball.
Akama – This was an easy fight for a shadow priest. Roots and fears work like a charm so not much else to say for this one as I one-shot him.
Smash Hoofstomp – This was another one-shot fight, even with two gnomes sitting on his shoulders. I only killed one but noticed a considerable damage increase to Smash so to make the fight faster, I should have killed the second goblin too. Fear and roots also work.
Unguloxx – I didn’t think there was much to this boss until I realised he could hit you for about 30-60K in melee. Again just keep him at range with root and fear and you’ll have him in the bag.
Now on to rank 7… Eek!
