It would be fair to say there were a few mishaps yesterday. The major one was starting the raid on 25 when it should have been set to 10. Hmm, I thought the Morchok fight seemed to be taking a long time. BTW, our new perk of ‘The Quick and the Dead’ (esp. the when you’re dead part) is such an added convenience. After the rectification, we managed to clear up to Blackhorn, two-healing all but one of the bosses. Due to some connection issues and latency, our Blackhorn attempts were kind of messy. Our kill actually came with me going Shadow to add to the ranged DPS. It seemed to help some but it became really hairy when we lost a healer and I could see Zes was running on empty towards the end of the fight. So with a well timed Hymn of Hope followed by a Divine Hymn to help out, we managed to get the kill we needed. Phew!
Unfortunately today, we had an hour wait before we could zone in for the last two encounters. Not surprisingly, we were itching to get in there since we had a long overdue appointment on Madness; last week getting him to 2% and all. Thankfully a friend of ours logged in, meaning we could finally get under way. We managed to have a pretty smooth run for Spine moving onto Madness after a short intermission. Being down a tank, we were able to get one of our raiders to switch in theirs – Thanks Nok.
The most surprising thing was, the fight we had yet to master, ran like clockwork. It was so smooth, in fact, that we one-shot the last encounter of Dragon Soul. Finally making us 8/8!
Congrats all, now to start working on Heroics…
