Proving Grounds for Tank (5.4)



The Proving Grounds is a new solo challenge introduced in 5.4. There are three different types: tank, healer, and DPS. They consist of getting past different waves of mobs and have four difficulties: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Endless.

To get started, you’ll need to talk with an NPC in the Temple of the White Tiger in Kun-Lai Summit or class trainer. You then get queue'ed for a scenario and will be in the instance by yourself. Gear scales down to 463, and set bonuses don't work similar to challenge mods though legendary gems do seem to work (not sure about legendary cloaks). There is a npc for repairing, reforging, healthstones, and anything else you require. You get raid buffs, and the enemies you have get raid debuffs. Each wave has a timer, if you don't kill the enemies in time then the next wave will come. If you finish early you'll have some downtime. The final wave must be defeated to complete the challenge; you won't finish even if the timer reaches zero (actually gets stuck at 0:01).



If you fail from "dying", you'll be stunned and do an aoe that will kill all enemies, and regain all your health. You will have to start the challenge all over.



After entering the scenario, talk to the npc again to select your type of challenge. This guild will cover the tank Proving Grounds.



The tank Proving Grounds consists of protecting a npc who has a large health pool (1969k) and is added to your party. This is useful because things like blood worms, black ox statue, etc. will work on her. She stands in the middle surrounded by barricades (these seem to los her and mobs?). In addition, she will renewing mists you (and herself) which heals 70k a second. She also attacks with a ~500k chi burst, and does an aoe jade lightning which is about 100k/s to unlimited targets.





The Enemies:
Small/Larger usually only vary by HP and some damage difference.

Large Illusionary Ripper
HP: 5,691,000

Appears: Bronze Wave 1,
Just tank and spank. Somewhat large hp but low damage.

Small Illusionary Ripper

Usually appear in pairs but still easy tank and spank.

Large Illusionary Forager
HP: 3,667,000

They appear in groups and have a stacking dot that has a short duration but can stack quickly.

Small Illusionary Forager
HP: 2,445,000

Attacks: Stacking bleed that lasts 8s.
They spawn in groups.

Small Illusionary Flamecaller
HP: 3,161,000


Attacks: They start with Invoke Lava,which can be interrupted, that will spawn pools of lava in random areas around him. These do a stacking dot that does fire damage, and also increases damage taken by 2% per stack and lasts 5 seconds.. Affects enemies. Afterwards, they'll do fireball which can be interrupted.
Always start with Invoke Lava, and will only cast it once.

Large Illusionary Flamecaller
HP: 4,637,000

Large Illusionary Wind-Guard
HP: 8,341,000

Attacks: Melee and also does a move called Wing Blast which I believe can be dodged/parried. It can not be interrupted. It will knock back and reduce your threat on him so have a taunt ready.

Small Illusionary Wind-Guard
