If only they wound up for the attack and had a giant ass white 'swoop' animation in exactly where the attack is going to fall

If you thought that was being a **** then you ain't been around these parts long, being a **** would be telling you to use your ******* eyes.

Are you not using DBM? It tells you which way they swing, and the giant windups are hard to miss. I honestly thought you were making a joke or something about them being random

that and you were posting about getting into ToT and MSV is like almost 6 months old now

Lol, been here almost every day for the past year, so you must not be referring to me. I also explained why I answered the way I did.

The very first time I did the Emperors, I didn't notice the swooping animation, and instead relied on how the boss held the weapon to determine which was he was swinging...which is totally not what you would expect.

After that, I did notice the extremely blatant strike animation, the individual animations for each type of swing he can do and how best to position myself to avoid the current swing and how to not be out of position to avoid the next swing.

Just gotta practice it.

I really suck at it, but I've only done it as a Lock and Holy Pally. I look for the big swooping animation, but it always seems to come just a second too late for me to dodge if I'm not already booking it in the proper direction. I try going through his body every time, but that just gets me screwed by the stomp. I guess it doesn't help playing with a 60% snare, but even on my Holy Pally (+45% movement speed per swing) it's rare I don't get hit by at least one.

I imagine practicing wachting the actual weapon stances would help a lot. I've never seen DBM warnings for each swing, but that may be because I've only done it as ranged DPS/healer.
