I have a feeling this is going to be a semi constant post
We had an interesting night on him tongiht, we have got phase 1 down – and the transition into phase 2 working quite well, we actually even managed phase 2 better than our previous attempts. We were gettingt he first raging spirit down and the second one was just a little slow, however the third one was not dying until after the second Valk almost.
I think people are too far spread out so when defile hits too many are getting caught in it, I also am wondering if the person who gets targetted orginally just keeps running around the other side of the platform from us if that would help them avoid being in it, but i didn’t manage to cop a defile last night at all to test my theory. We were doing rhe valk with 50% success, some we managed to get other we lost, on one Valk there was a defile patch between us and her….
Too many people are getting done by blue balls We are losing people over the edge all the time. Also a couple of attempts when the raging spirit I created turned around and one shotted me, that was pleasant. Then there was the other attempt with the raging spirit did his cone of death and killed me and another clothie, apparently standing to the side only works when the mob is still facing the side heeh
Was funny as hell though, we lost our tank at one point and we couldnt figure out why he was so hard to keep up…yep, helps if you repair your gear so the durability is above 0%!!!!!! LOL….Someone was a little keen
All in all, we had a mixed night, we did really wel on some attempts and really badly on others. We are getting the hang of it, but only raiding 2 hours doesn’t really get you the chance to push it…but I think we may have the second phase worked out very soon, just a little more control instead of insanity and we should be good
On a side note, I know it isn’t the best fight to test it, but I was hitting about 7.5k DPS, which is not huge I admit, but for someone in a mix of 10/25 man gear I reckon it isn’t too shabby I am sure if I was in a 25 man raid that would go up with the extra buffs, however I am impressed that i am doing that much DPS Considering I have put in some real effort to get my toon improved, I think it is really showing now
I am very tempted to try fire considering that is apparently giving arcane a run for its money now….and I love fire I wanna get my DPS up and will keep reading up and finding out what I can do. I
think having changing my specs slightly for the shielding bonus etc will help, I need to get into the habit of reapplying my shields though as most fights with aoe damage will give me a buff of course I have to balance that out with losing mana due to said shield!
