A Change of Command

After picking up the quest yesterday, we decided to go ahead and try A Change of Command after all (although it helps when you’re in the correct building, right Cool?) :P

For a 93 elite, High Marshal Twinbraid is really just an endurance fight. As ranged, all I had to do was find a sweet spot between the sticks of dynamite placed in strategic parts of the room. It also took a while for him to set off all the explosives but even then, I didn’t really have to move at all.

Cannonball-Spin

Cool tanked and spanked most of his Cannonball Spins after we discovered they didn’t really do much damage but boy, his Chaingun was another story. Unfortunately, neither of these are interruptible but easily avoided, when needed.

After 30mins, we were still going strong getting him to ~50% as our tank/healer combo. That’s when a Shaman suddenly showed up and started DPS’ing the boss. When we got to ~10% (another 15mins later) something awful happened. Coolidge died resulting in me tanking the boss. Bugger! SO CLOSE!

Cannonball

On the second attempt, the Shaman asked if we wanted him to heal, Cool thought this was a good idea so we tried the fight again. Sure it would have taken longer but his DPS was pretty dodgy. Little did I know Twinbraid had a fourth ability called Sound the Alarm. Cool must have been really good at catching his cast the first time as we didn’t get any adds at all. However, this time we had about 10x 90 elite bodyguards (which were almost dead) when Cool had died again. We didn’t get to make much of a dent in him that time.

They say third time’s the charm right? I decided to DPS while the Shammie healed… eek, green gear! :P I must say, it was a lot faster with this combination though and he was dead in 15mins. Woot!

All up it took us 1hr to complete the quest but as we’ve shown, it is doable with three and I’m sure we could have done it, just the two of us, if it turned out that way. A big thanks to Sayberr for his help.

  2. As revenge for your slaughter of this noble Dwarf, shortly after we spoke last night I killed your Orc, Warlord Bloodhilt!

    The fight is slightly different for alliance but basically once you are standing in the right position you just beat him down for what seems like an hour and you win.

    • I was wondering how you went in the end. How many did you have in the group?

      • We had 6, 3 who needed it and 3 others who may have been forced into helping me!

        We had an accidental hunter pull at the start so no one was ready but we somehow managed to pull it together.

        25 achievement points! YAY!

        • Nice! I may try this when my Draenei is up there. Then again, maybe not. :P
