Jademcian: Hunter Guide to Heroic Megaera

Jade heroic megaera

Jademcian at Jade’s Forest: People seemed surprised that I used Marksmanship for Megaera. This isn’t going to be the right choice for a lot of people. Survival is great AoE, and it’s great burst AoE, so if you are asked by your raid leader to blow up the wyrm adds then survival is a very strong choice. It’s also a very strong choice if you are misdirecting any wyrm waves to the wyrm tank, as it will apply all those ISS DoTs. However, I was not on wyrm waves, and our Brewmaster tank had no trouble picking them all up himself. I tossed out a few, especially towards the later spawns, but beyond that – I was straight tunnelling the heads.

Head damage is important. If you don’t hit a certain threshold, you will get an additional breath, and this additional breath will probably kill your tank. While it’s all well and good to have big numbers AoEing the adds, they are secondary to the actual boss itself. AoEing the adds is still important, but it is not the most important. For us, we had warlocks set to do the wyrms. They are exceptional at AoE, surpassing a survival hunter in most cases, and this AoE actually helps their single target (for the most part). As a result, my AoE was just extra fluff and unneeded.

There really isn’t too much to say about Megaera. Shoot the heads, make them die before the fourth breath, misdirect any loose wyrms to where they should be. . . . read full article
