Oh you cheeky raid group!! I wassail recovering my from my near death flu, so was home on Wednesday to raid, I wasn’t going to as I wasn’t feeling 100% but it sucked me in. I ended up dropping at Zek because I was just exhausted. We cleared out the first bosses and I had a weapon drop that I was already carrying in my bags. Thanks RNGeebus. I did get a screenshot of dead Vectis since I missed that one originally.
Friday. Friday was amazing though. I was a few minutes late thanks to work/transport but I logged into discord with Jason saying he would be dropping people if we sucked and I was thinking maybe I should just sit out. I am so glad I asked to come anyway though.
We had someone, a priest…Rempart? who was helping with the strats so I can only assume they were someone we knew somehow. I like having other people in helping us. Our DPS has increased enough (including mine) that we were able to do the zerg strat as it is supposed to be done.
The lack of pre-potting was brought up by Laurie and I felt slightly guilty as this is one of the first weeks I actually had any pre-pots ready to go but as Ben said they are just too expensive. Need to spend more time herbing so I can make some more, but I just need so many mats on my mage it is ridiculous. I didn’t think it would be possible to make professions even worse than Legion but they managed it. I went through the stack of 20 pots I had during the night because I wanted to make sure I made up for my lack of DPS by using everything I could.
It took us a few goes after getting him to the second phase repeatedly before it all clicked in a very non-“Warsong” style (ie 90% of the raid dead, boss at 1% and a couple of poor buggers giving everything they had) but we did it!! Don’t laugh, that is actually our style. It is how we get most of our first kills, but I will say after that first one we do it much better the next week 🙂
We decided to take a picture away from the death hole incase someone happened to “accidentally” click it.
We headed to Mythrax next of course, he wasn’t much worse than normal imho. He hits harder and you take way more damage overall so you have to be much more careful but honestly it wasn’t that bad. The healers suffer the most in this one if the rest of us are being numpty.
I loved the advice of “everyone should take less damage” hehehh; honestly I thought the objective was to take as much as possible 🙂 Love my guild sometimes. It made me laugh. I wasn’t sure we would get this one as we kept getting to 30% and then being all dead; the first transition was a little rough but also bumping people out their balls of death was killing us because we were doing it badly.
As luck would have it though, after we stopped taking so much damage (which ironically is not represented well in the picture I took of the kill), the healers had more mana, we talked through the ball bumping better and would you believe it? We smooshed his face into the ground.
Can I just say how freaking happy I am it happened on Friday night!!! I was there for it 🙂 <happy dance>
I was relatively happy with my DPS, I was in the middle of the pack and doing pretty well (I thought). I was expecting boomies to be really bad when I started the xpac but they have made enough small changes that I am happy to stay as boomkin for a while longer. I definitely could get more out of her if my gear was better stat weighted, but I simply am not online enough to get all the gear opportunities. I might have to make a concerted effort to spend one day on the weekend to do some heroics, expeditions, world bosses etc.
Now we are left with G’huun then we will have cleared heroic again 🙂 I sort of don’t want them to do it on Wednesday, but I also don’t want them to spend the entire night wiping just so I can get the kill with them on Friday! I am allowed to be selfish, no laws against it in Azeroth!!
