Raiding: The struggle is real

Since we killed Heroic Argus, we have barely managed to scrape together a raid team.  We can get a group into the raid but we are super melee heavy and lacking on ranged, and also very few with crowd control to help on Aggramar.

What annoys me about this is that Blizzard have been going on and on and on about trying to make it so that you can take whatever class you want and “play what you want”.  Yet, they make boss fights which require you to have a specific class make up to actually complete it.  However I was discussing this with Drew and he said their defence will be that you just have to work out another strategy to kill it with your make up.  After mulling it over on something like Aggramar, we use the stunning method, but how can you do it another way?  If you keep the big adds up and healed though all the little ones being popped (or half to cover the lack of full CC), the big adds would kill you.  No idea to be honest…Either way it is annoying.

I have been enjoying he raids that we have been doing though either way but it will be interesting to see what happens in BfA and between now and then leading into BfA.  We haven’t had a chance to get to Coven as yet, which is disappointing, but we shall see.

However in our last raid I wanted to show you this lovely exchange:

I was laughing my butt off and could not have made that happen any more perfectly. Before I rolled the second time I had already told him to take the item, but I sort of fell like Blizzard are watching us and messing with our head.

I did get to take my mage into an alt run which I was pretty excited about and I got some good upgrades on her. My DPS wasn’t brilliant, but it was not as bad as I had thought – the bigger challenge was doing the fights as DPS when I generally do them as Guardian.  I was changing between frost and arcane depending on the fight and it was fun having my weapons and gear be able to switch without too much fuss.  The current format for talents and switching is awesome, but it has taken a lot of AP to be able to get both weapons to  useable level and I am not even entirely sure they are even really that great.

My fingers are crossed tightly that over the next couple of weeks we can get a group together to kill Coven and some more people online to do the bosses again.  We have only killed Argus once so it feels a little like we need it another couple of times, it isn’t on farm.

  1. Being that my guild is on Hiatus for Raiding until at least the BFA Pre-Patch – I’m going to see whether any of them would be interested in coming to raids with you guys (That is, If they’re allowed)

    1. I think it went pretty well the other night 🙂 I like seeing people work together especially when one group can’t make up one raid group. It would be interesting to see some of these smaller servers maybe have all the guilds just combine into like 4 or 5 super massive guilds. I would hate to manage that sort of mess, but from a raiding and events perspective it would be constantly busy.
