So, iron maidens….
What can I say about them that don’t involve more off colour words than urbandictionary.com?? If only they were as awesome as these ones? Maybe they are if you are into Orc girls….
Anyway last raid week was wipe fest on them. I missed Thursday and figured they would have killed them since we were close already, but I found out they hadn’t So when I got in there Monday I felt pretty good that we would have it. I cannot tell you how close we got.
This is the consistent view. One boss dead and the others almost there. I don’t believe we are really doing the third phase right in that we are sacrificing people for the penetrating shot, I think we should continue to do them as they really aren’t that hard, but having said that we are not far off.
People are getting a little stressed about the entire fight and frustrated with people dying but it gets harder each attempt to not make mistakes as you know people are getting angry. I know I am not one to generally fail on mechanics and even i stuffed up at one point because I ran the wrong way and straight onto bombs on one attempt. Then I had a death on a pentrating shot even though I had invised out of it, my cooldown got burnt – i watched myself go phased and then I died. It was all within a few seconds and even other people said they saw me go so I shouldn’t have died. I would suggest it was just a timing thing. No idea but it causes a problem.
Crooked then messaged me afterwards and asked why I wasn’t blinking when I had blood ritual and I had to ask myself the same thing. I just had not even considered it. I have become to used to using Ice Floesand casting when moving now that I very rarely use blink unless I have a long way to go. I admit to feeling particularly stupid on that front now. Thanks Crooky!!
I also decided to simcraft msyelf again as I noticed my DPS is still somewhat questionable. On heavy movement fights according to simcraft in my current gear I can do a maximum of 20k…on patchwerk fights I think it said 23k ( I will check when i get home). Either way I am exceeding those figures based on the fight – it just sucks to be down the bottom most of the time. I am seriously considering changing to fire next week to give that a belting in raid if they will allow it.
I am tightly crossing my fingers for a kill this week – which will be epic!
