More Brawlers Shirts

Part two of my Brawlers Challenge series. This is more of a reference post as I defeat the final few.

Dippy and Doopy
Dippy-and-Doopy Strategy: Dippy moves a lot faster than Doopy so keep both of them dotted while taking Dippy out first. Snares don’t work but Psyfiend and Spectral Guise may be used.
Tuxedo-Like Shirt Rewards: Tuxedo-Like Shirt
Humongous Sack of Coins – 500G
50x Valor Points
Rank 5
 Mecha-Bruce
Mecha-Bruce Strategy: Bruce is back and he’s brought some major upgrades with him. This is very much a DPS race as he gets faster and stronger each time he upgrades.
Brucehide Jersey Rewards: Brucehide Jersey
Enormous Sack of Coins – 600G
50x Valor Points
Rank 6
 Blingtron 3000
Blingtron 3000 Strategy: Create a chain of smaller Blingtron 2000 bots from Blingtron 3000 to the Tesla Coil at the other end. Once the small bots are all connected via a circuit, activate the Tesla Coil at the other end of the pit (note this has a cast). This will stun Blingtron giving you a 900% damage increase.
Blingshirt Rewards: Last Season’s Shirt
Enormous Sack of Coins – 600G
50x Valor Points
Rank 6
 Ro-Shambo
Ro-Shambo Strategy: The fact he follows the Rock, Paper, Scissors order makes it a lot easier to anticipate his next move. However there’s no way to know this from the first time you go in as there’s a one in three chance he will start with rock. Once you understand this, you can defeat him pretty easily. Note that if you win the throw he gets stunned for a few seconds giving you a nice DPS increase. The adds are pretty easy to avoid but if you lose the throw you’ll be taking a lot more damage from him and the adds.
Paper Shirt Rewards: Paper Shirt
Overflowing Sack of Coins – 700G
50x Valor Points
Rank 7
The Bear and the Lady Fair
Bear and the Fair Strategy: Jump between the trampolines to receive Critical Bounce, a buff which causes your next spell to hit very hard so by jumping up to Augh’s platform on the third jump, you’ll have several seconds to DPS before being slapped off the platform. You can essentially ignore the bear by using fear, tendrils and spectral guise.
Gorgeous Blouse Rewards: Gorgeous Blouse
Overflowing Sack of Coins – 700G
50x Valor Points
Rank 7
 Mingus Diggs
Mingus Diggs Strategy: Mingus doesn’t take any damage until all four statues are dead. Each statue will give you a debuff which will build up very fast if you’re not careful. The trick is to stand in front of each statue to disable it. After 5secs that particular debuff will drop off.
Rewards: Digmaster’s Bodysleeve
Gigantic Sack of Coins – 900G
50x Valor Points
Rank 9
 Blind Hero
Blind Hero Strategy: He has 3 main abilities: Blind Strike, Swift Strike a 45º arc and Blind Cleave which damages everything within ~20 yards around him. The only thing you really need to watch is his charge. I used Mindbender and Spectral Guise to drop threat and stay at range. For a Rank 9 fight he’s easier than expected.
Sightless Mantle Rewards: Sightless Mantle
Gigantic Sack of Coins – 900G
50x Valor Points
Rank 9

Once you have defeated all of the bosses, you can expect another shirt Wraps of the Blood-Soaked Brawler and accompanying achievement Deck Your Collection.

A couple of months ago, I managed to defeat Blingtron 3000, one of twelve challenge fights in Brawler’s Guild. I admit it took a few attempts before I was able to complete the fight but it felt good to add another boss to the tally. Oh and Blizz, WTB virtual storage space for all these shirts.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve tried most of the remaining card fights just to see what the fights were like but after seeing The Bear and the Lady Fair, I was anxious to try it. It uses the same mechanic when farming your Shado-Pan Geyser Gun so I thought it would be fun… and it was… until I died a number of times.

Then last night I was making progress getting the boss to 26%, 12% and remaining consistently under 20% until I died at 2%!!! I was determined to keep trying until my flask wore off and by then it was late so I went to bed.

Today I was going to take a break from Brawlers (as I usually do) but I kept thinking about that 2%. It took several more attempts on my main computer before it happened. I had defeated the ‘lady’ trogg!

Now just five to go as well as my bottleneck boss on Rank 7.

Some of these names might seem familiar but many of the fights have new mechanics which are fun and interesting. Defeating each of the challengers will reward you with a unique shirt, varying amounts of gold and valour points.

Grandpa GrumpleFloot
Grandpa-Grumpledo Strategy: This fight was easy enough. He randomly Throws Luckydo(n’t) throughout the fight so avoid the red harmful luckydos and run into the blue ones if you need a health boost. After a while, he will also drop yellow luckydos which will start hopping after you (which is quite amusing to watch) so just keep moving or they will explode on contact.
Floot-Tooters shirt Rewards:
Floot-Tooter’s Tunic
Giant Sack of Coins – 400G
50x Valor PointsRank 4
Master Boom Boom
Master Boom Boom Strategy: He will throw dynamite around (which is easy to avoid) and have a couple of fuse phases (as seen in the image). You must run over each fuse to stomp them out otherwise the crate will explode and you’ll die.
Boomshirt Rewards:

Ty’thar
Ty'thar Strategy: You have to use your movement keys to avoid his swings as you keep an eye on his cast bar. If he swings left > move right (E), if he swings right > move left (Q) and if he slams hit the S key. Be ready to knock him out three times as you DPS him down although he will have less health each time he gets up. Note: if you knock him out while you are stunned i.e while you have dots on him, you will not get credit for the fight. Also, don’t get stunned more than twice or you’ll be challenging him again.
Undisputed Champion shirt Rewards:

Razorgrin
Razorgrin Strategy: Kind of an amusing fight for a shark that flops around the entire time. Just don’t let him touch you.
Sharkskin-tunic Rewards:
Sharkskin Tunic
Humongous Sack of Coins – 500G

Splat
Splat Strategy: This slime seems to move a lot faster than the original and the puddles of ooze are certainly new. Just don’t stand in them or you’ll be hurting. Fear and tendrils worked well with one use of my fiend when I wanted to get some range on them.
Ooze-shirt Rewards:
