I hate DST. I detest it. Such a stupid convention. Anyway due to the stupidity of changing the time the Kiwis in the guild needed to change the raid night for the week until we in Aus caught up. So we raided Friday and Saturday instead. I tried to drag Zeirah along but she had already pugged normals for the week so I didn’t think it would be fair to drag her through our run 🙂
We smashed through normal though. Did we get all the way through? Am I remembering that badly? I died on Zul – to the point that just before I suicided off the edge Nelly said “Goodbye Mel!” – like seriously Nelly had time to notice me and say goodbye and one of you dispellers couldn’t save me in time! hurumpf. Unbelievable. Thankfully now when you die it dumps you into he middle of the platform so you can watch the action instead of just leaving you on the side. Mythrax gave us a few issues and G’huun was a one shot. No issues. The ball bouncers did their stuff and it went smoothly.
We logged on for Heroic on Saturday and we were down a heals so I suggested I could see if Zeirah was up for it. She was.
Heroic Taloc was easy enough, except for the fact that Nelly wasn’t around to do the laser beams so Ben was volunteered by Jason to do it. We get to the last one and Ben was saying ” yeah you should probably move soon, you will be ok for a”…..and then the laser comes through and hits a few people….ahahhaha It was hilarious. It was messy towards the end we had very few places left to stand I kept getting cut off from the raid and was out of range. But we ultimately got him down.
One of the worst nights on M.O.T.H.E.R. I have seen. We just couldn’t get it to happen – 50% of the attempts were caused by a bug in which she drops aggro and even without Aaron touching her, she turns and walks away from Brian. It is really annoying as she was walking straight through into the other room. I think Brian was getting frustrated by it because there is literally nothing you can do about it. In the end though he got her under control and our first group going through stopped letting a cast off one of the adds and we smashed it.
Fetid devourer went down without an issue. So far Jason hadn’t remembered any of the heroic mechanics so we were reminding him as the fight started which was funny and hectic. Almost like having to remind him before every pull to give us fortitude. I swear you would think people like having the extra buffs again, just leave the druids out – thanks again Blizz. I would like to be able to buff with Wild or Thorns even!!
Then Zek. What can I say. This guy is a twat. a twat monkey. a crab. GAHHHHH
I think we got him to 37% at the lowest point? We seemed to be doing much better with the eye beams but it is just such a high risk move having us grouped up. If one person has lag, is not paying attention or just slightly slower in moving they kill the entire raid. I even changed my spec to get the bounding backward option but was then too chicken to use it because what if it isn’t far enough back and I wipe the raid? Or what if I still need to move further backward and because it is backward I don’t turn my toon fast enough and run forward instead? Or what if it doesn’t send me backwards – if it is as bad as blink I could kill everyone. I chickened out (no pun intended) and just continued to run.
I watched quite a few videos and read strats and I couldn’t find one where anyone grouped up – to be fair – mythic groups require you spread out as the eye beam is instant cast so you don’t have time to move. But I figure it is just a safer option to not kill the entire raid, but maybe only kill one or two people. No idea. I hope they kill him on Wednesday even though it will kill me to not be there 🙂
