We raided like men gone mad 🙂
Yes I know there is a 25% buff at the moment, but I tell you what it kicked butt 🙂
We started just after 7.40pm, 9 manning with 2 healers. We figured we had been 9 manning the first 3 bosses well enough for a while we would just continue,, but honestly, we got all the way to Hagara with one down and we were doing it fast. We wiped once on Zonozz because the tank forgot the fight :0) it was ok though. At Hagara we had a guildie come in just to add an extra person, we smashed through Ultrax and Warmaster and buy 9:16pm we had cleared up to our usual spot.
We lost a guildie at that point, so were back down to 9, and we gave spine a couple of shots. Both were a little horrid, but given we haven’t raided in….god knows how long, I said two months, but others said one month…maybe I am just too addicted to the raiding 🙂 Anyway, we are hoping to get everyone online tonight and as I told the guys last night – Madness is not really any harder than in LFR – of course you need more dps (which we have in abundance) but there are no new tricks to learn or anything.
I was frost last night for the first time in a raid….and I was lowest on the DPS most of the night for overall. Here is our Ultrax fight. So, Depending on the night for fire it really isn’t that different…LOL…I need to change some stats around on my gear and some enchants but I think I need more haste. I am at the soft cap of 33.3% for crit so just need to switch some things around a little.
I really do enjoy frost though. I will leave it a couple more weeks so I get better at playing it before I make a decision to go back to fire. I was getting a little swamped with everything proccing together and wasn’t sure what to hit and freaking out basically. I think only time and practice will solve that problem.
Everyone was excited to be raiding again and were saying it as well. The team is a pretty happy bunch when we are kicking butt and playing well. Perhaps our solution is to just take a break every now and again to let people re-coup?
I will be honest, people were just playing better last night – with or without the increase. They were doing what they needed to on time and correctly…except for Zonozz…I just can’t get them to move with the ball bouncing in the ranged group…but when they are on point, we get shit done. I just wish they could do it all the time 🙂
