We started pulls on Domo late Tuesday. We studied three different strats … no leaps or scythes, cat ONRY, and the normal strat from regular mode. We started out with the cat mode strat. I ain’t gonna lie … I hate cat phase. When they nerfed Firelands and made it possible to stay in scorp for more than a dozen flame scythes, I cheered. Wait, ok, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, because I was still pissed that they nerfed the shit before we could finish it … and we *would* have finished it … but that’s a horse corpse that’s been kicked enough times.
Anyhow, we started with cat onry, and it was … meh. Playing to the gimmick part of the fight and using it with finesse is not really SR’s specialty. So we went to an adjusted normal strat and made improvement. Came back last night and fine-tuned it some more … having Cayle stay out in melee, and I think Vysh too for parts of it, although as the fight wore on he would get called in to help eat scythes and toward the end even Cayle was made to ‘stack up, bitches’. I believe the numbers we used, or tried to use, were something along the lines of 12, 7, 6, 7, 4 … I dunno. Slice called out the moves and we did what he said. This won’t work for everyone … you need some pretty decent dps and you need cooldowns to deal with the scythes. We have .. Divine Guardian, Aura Mastery, PW: Barrier, Tranquility … and then we also have two hunters so we have two snake traps, plus both of their pets and Lyssi’s felpuppy to help soak the damage.
Adoe immediately ran to trade chat after the raid to link his heroic Fandral’s Flamescythe and ask why it wasn’t turning his pet into a fire kitty. /facepalm … Well, he *is* a troll so I guess I should expect it. hehe
The kill put us at 3/7 heroic and moved us up to … I think 5th on the server?
So can we kill Beth now? I want to hear Arv bitch when she won’t drop his heroic chest. ^.^
