For arcane, I kept using a 3 explosion>barrage rotation, using arcane missiles as they procced. This ensured that I I'd always have a stable mana supply which is crucial with that barrier talent. I think I only ended up using Evocation once.

This cycle, I got both Ret and BM done.

Goddammit, 14 minutes on the God-Queen to miss an interrupt by a second.

Also, I'm really, really starting to hate her knockbacking charge. A lot of quick deaths have been because she's knocked my ass away from a rune or interrupted a cast during the shield.

Fffffffffffff-

Get it down to just the God-Queen and the Runeseer. Poly the Queen, blow TW and pot, just start bursting that casting f*** down. I have it in the goddamn bag, I can feel it, I'm at near max health, I've been avoiding s***, I've been keeping that shield up, all of it. And then I'm so focused on bursting that I forget to actually interrupt the big oneshot cast and die.

The last few attempts I got after that just failed. Kinda bummed. This is the first time in a while I haven't completed any of the challenges in a go-round. And that's after spending a good chunk of gold on that crafted legendary since I didn't have the shielding ones for the mage.

I am sure you are already doing it, but just in case, have you been setting Runeseeker on focus while having a target Sigryn macro for casting polymorph to make sure you don't ever miss a cast?

Yeah, I have Counterspell set to target Runeseer targetlasttarget and Polymorph set to target Sigryn. The Jarl is the only one I don't have a macro for just because it's good to Slow both him and Sigryn.

It's for sure possible with the gear I have, I just have to not fail. Think I'm going to focus on the mage a little during this down-time, run some EN/NH/ToS to try for a legendary and then get some essence.

What ilevel and legendaries are you currently using, and which legendaries do you have access to?

Though if you are dying to the one shot but have everything else down, I imagine advice at this point is somewhat moot.

Still, you'll get it next time around =D

My most successful runs were using the crafted legendary shoulders and the pants that give you mana from AB. The reduced damage/bonus run speed/heal is nice. I first used Gravity Spiral, but I basically never used Evocation since the constant AB usage meant I never ran out of mana.

I'm at 930 ilvl, so I definitely overgear it. Will probably try and grab some normal Antorus gear since this alt's just geared out with LFR.

The Antorus gear, especially trinkets, should make a joke out of it. As with all of the challenges, if you have access to Prydaz, I would use it.

When I did it, I had Belovir's Final Stand or however it was spelled, the one which gives you a shield whenever you blink equal to 15% of your maximum health. The shield itself only lasts as long as Blink is on CD by design, but it still made it a quick walk to the point I barely had to snag orbs.

If you don't, then I can imagine it getting hectic at basically never missing an orb or waiting to pick it up right before it expires and shielding on CD.

Slipstream I found worked pretty good on attempts, but Shimmer with Belovir's is just too good. I did also have the Kilt, and I Barraged basically every time I had 4 Charges to make sure I always had the mana necessary for Counterspelling (I had a wipe attempt where I literally couldn't stop the cast because I mismanaged my mana and it was damn embarassing).

I'm so glad I had both Belovir and Prydaz for that challenge. I think I mentioned it earlier, but it took me 6 tries. ...5 of those were me blinking out of the arena.
