Yeah, we were not flexing, we were fluxing, we started with the last wing on Saturday – we wiped – a lot. It was good. Yeah, I love wiping – it means I am raiding and doing what I love.
The trash before Blackfuse was horrific – I was told when I first went back to raiding that the trash was really hard – and I can’t dispute that. We almost wiped, but a couple of us survived and so I therefore say it was not a wipe, just a lot of the raid died.
Blackfuse – was a pain in the buttski more because the first couple of times people were dropping their shit all over the place, but you know some people haven’t seen the fights, weren’t on vents etc so I can forgive that – but next time….yeah next time I will spank them!!
Garrosh finally makes sense now, I asked what the catalyst was for movement and that cleared everything up. So I managed to do about 160k on the fight, given that is my 3rd time on him in Flex, I think that will only increase when i get better at it and know what I am going. On one of those attempts I actually had DPS at about 220 for a sustained period!! Woot!! (Thanks to the swanky meta gem I now have!)
We killed Garrosh and then decided to do Wing 1 – I got an upgrade to a trinket I already have which was pretty cool, but other than nothing else, I used my rolls a couple of times hoping for better leggings, but managed to score gold every time.
We smashed through wing 1 and survived one boss with 30 seconds left on enrage and Sha with a hunter attacking the boss whilst we were all buffing after a trash wipe, if we can survive those things we can survive anything.
I do wonder though if there is something that changes between flex and LFR – as I can do much better DPS in LFR on the same fights – I wonder is there more movement in Flex and so you lose some measure of DPS, or do the bosses take less damage in LFR then Flex? Not sure, I will investigate though as it sort of bums me out when I can see much higher numbers in LFR on the same fights.
It was a good night, I tried to talk a little more on vents so as to not freak out my raid leader again, but I was just enjoying my time in raid, I didn’t get any Titan runestones at all!!! All those boss fights we did and ZERO!!!! Devastated!!
