Nazgrim Defeated

April 22, 2014

After Juggernaut, we skipped ahead to General Nazgrim. We started out 3 healing it, but once we got the new mechanics and positioning down, people were mostly only dying to things they should be moving out of, so I switched to ret. Sometimes having things die faster is the answer. It only took a few pulls after that to get him.

Yes, I watched the last part of the fight from the floor. No, I didn’t stand in stuff … adds killed me. :p

I assume we are going back and doing Dark Shaman next. We practiced the 3 tank method last night in preparation. We generally just tank them together and deal with all of the mechanics, but that makes the fight seriously harder on heroic.

Juggs Deactivated

April 8, 2014

So … Iron Juggernaut. The damage on this fight on heroic is just stupid. I mean seriously stupid. Everything hits for 200-300k, and some of it is random damage that can’t be avoided. If you get hit by more than one thing at a time, you’re done for. I was one of the first to die on every. single. pull. Except this one …

To deal with the incredible amount of damage, we … gosh, I’m almost embarrassed to admit this, but apparently it’s a strategy that has worked for other raids, and hey, he’s dead so … yes, we 4 healed it. I don’t think we would have gotten through it without the extra cooldowns.

In other news … they finally got me. I don’t know why I even bothered to resist, it was inevitable. After raid I always stay in vent and chat. Kash and the tanks were all playing D3 together while I did quests in the Storm Peaks on Giska. They were having so much fun! So I figured, you know, I don’t have to buy the xpac to check out the loot changes. So I logged on. The witch doctor went out and promptly died to the first pack of mobs she saw. Yeah. But I decided the barbarian deserved a chance, too, so I dusted him off as well. The first two mobs he killed dropped upgrades! He is level 35 and was actually on the final quest, so he ended up killing Diablo and getting two legendary drops. Yeah … let’s just say Van logged on to collect his treasure goblin pet before I went to bed.

I blame Lyss! She told me the Crusader is voiced by the same actor as Lor’themar. She tempted me! Evil warlock, you just can’t trust them! :p

Heroic: Galakras

March 26, 2014

Good run last night. We one shot Heroic: Protectors and only wiped once on Immerseus, Norushen, and Sha. That left us plenty of time to pick up where we’d left off last week on Heroic: Galakras. This also took only two pulls.

The fight is not very different for me since I am staying on the ground the whole time. There’s just a lot more damage, although we kept that in check compared to last week. It makes a big difference when there isn’t an army of proto-drakes hurling globs of flame into the raid.

I tried to get everyone to stand still long enough for a screenshot. This was the best I could manage …

Well, the drake is there along with all 10 of us, so hey, it counts! So what if I got the backsides of half the raid, for most of them it’s their better side anyway. :p

So, Juggernaut. Remember how I complained about the movement in Heroic Sha? Um, yeah … I take that back. Eff Juggernaut. We made four pulls on him. We did get him to just over 50% though, even through our flailing, so I don’t think it will take us long. Just need to tweak positioning and cooldowns and we’ll survive.

Break Time

March 19, 2014

Man, how long has it been since we’ve had this kind of post here? It was long-standing tradition in SR … pre-MoP at least. Then pandas came along and people race-changed and/or swapped mains and Lyss, Arv and I were the only belfs left. Fortunately, that is NOT the case in That Guild, where half of the raid is Sin’dorei.

So, we’re on break Monday night between Garrosh pulls, and I dig through my bags for something to pass the time and click on Gokk’lok’s Shell. Schriko sees me, walks over, and uses his too.

Naked belfs, yay! BUT it doesn’t end there. Stickfigure gets in on the fun, dancing between us.

Having fun is definitely a big part of raiding for me. I’m lucky to have a guild that knows how to do that AND kill bosses at the same time. :)

Side note: DKs get a different colour of underwear? How did I not notice this before now?
