How do challenge modes with gear work?

I am gonna level up my Priesty but I want that god damn challenge set for priest after being envious of your Rogue and frankly Paladin and Monk are both blah.

Getting motivated after seeing Zardar do it

I need invisibility pots obviously but do I need to reach a certain gear quota or does the gear all scale no matter what? Ask this because I am curious if I can just start out in all 463 gear and not really have to worry.

Thank ya :D

I think you need to be 463 and have cleared it on Heroic, but I'm unsure.

Any gear you have that is higher than Ilvl 463 will be reduced to 463.
The same does not apply in the other direction.
So before you go into challenge modes you want every slot to be ilvl 463 at least.

Another thing to note is that it's more beneficial if you were to have gear with stats that are better suited for your spec.

ie, be a fury warrior in all epic crit gear as opposed to all blue haste gear. etc.

Challenge modes are a real pain in the ****. Any help no matter how small is a must have. And expect to fail. A lot.

More gem sockets. Trinkets that are really good for their ilvl are awesome, too.

Yeah don't go in trying to get gold right off the bat or even bronze just go in take your time and learn the dg as a challenge mode and work your way to being faster

the group we cleared it on and the 2nd group we're doing it on now use our regular gear. If you want to tryhard you should use 463+ gear that have your best stats on it
gear is scaled down to 463 but gems and enchants still work.

get the belt that drops off of feng, doesnt matter which mode you can put 3 gems in that thing. also the prismatic socket you put into your sha touched works. the sha touched gems doesn't work though. also tier bonuses do not work.

darkmoon trinkets are also great.

none of it is needed though. my hunter is in s***tastic gear and is clearing gold w/ no problems on the timer (our tightest has been 11 seconds in SSB, which is honestly the normal)

also another thing is tanks should be using dps flasks and food (im sure thats not a problem seeing how you're a monk) and healers need to be help DPSing if there's nothing to heal
