The Dummy Foundry for parsing is now available on PTS. You can access the Dummy Foundry by clicking on the sparkling traps in Sanctum, Meridian and Tempest Bay (beside the portal). The dummies in there have raid buffs and debuffs on them to simulate parsing in an optimum raid setting.
For those of you who are keen on testing the upcoming changes for the individual callings, please follow these instructions.
1) Set your Dungeon Difficulty to Master and enter the Dummy Foundry.
2) Purchase the Raid gear box of your calling from the vendor in there. This will give you most of the items required for parsing, except a cape and trinket.
3) Exit the Dummy Foundry by clicking one of the traps behind the vendor. The blue one ports you to Sanctum, the yellow one to Tempest Bay, and the red one to Meridian.
4) Set your Dungeon Difficulty to Standard and enter the Dummy Foundry again.
5) Behind the trainers, there is a lever. Click on it and you will get full Conquest XP.
6) Buy the PA XP items from Fluffy 2 and max out Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the PA tree.
7) Exit the Dummy Foundry via one of the traps at the top right hand corner of the instance.
8) Set your Dungeon Difficulty to Expert and enter the Dummy Foundry again.
9) You can now start parsing on the level 62 raid-ready dummies in this instance.
10) Do the parses for about 4 mins.
Please ensure the following conditions are met for testing.
1) Max out T1 and T2 PA.
2) Full Conquest Buffs
3) NO Consumables of any kind. No whetstones/oilstones/vials etc. Use only Runes found in the gear box.
4) Level 60 Raid 1 Epic gear.
5) NO Trinkets. NO Cape. The gear box doesn't provide it.
6) For AE Parses, parse them on the 8 dummy stacks.
I would like ST and AE parses WITH and WITHOUT synergy crystals against the level 62 practice dummies found in the Expert Mode Dummy Foundry.
Please post your build and results, including the breakdown of the individual abilities in this thread.
Thank you for your time.
