Of course, being new raid content, I just assumed that people would want to go in and have a look at the new stuff.
I was expecting all the raiders online bying for spots and instead we barely managed to scrape together enough people.
So, we trundled into the instance and after a quick explanation about staying out of the shite on the ground – we did all the trash – a few deaths as I think the damage was a little higher than anticpated which caused the healers some stress 🙂 A few people mentioned the swirly on the ground was a little difficult to see at times but not such an issue anyway 🙂
We get to Morchak and I give a quick overview and off we go – one shot. He was not difficult at all. I was quite proud of everyone with their communication. Stats aren’t uploaded yet so i can’t go over them as yet. I didn’t even tape it!!!! I just forgot completely about videoing 😦
I made a bad decision last night, to go to the ping pong boss – I honestly thought we could have done him. I am now thinking the slime boss may have been better.
Anyway, we really struggled on the ping pong dude – err…ZonnnoZz or something similar…(reminder – learn bosses names before posting). Boss facing the wrong way, ball going off everywhere but where the wanted it to go, tanks dying, dps dying, healers getting blown up etc etc it was all just nastiness.
Towards the end we were getting the hang of it, but in 10 man (not sure if 25 is different) the ball needs to be close to a group of people when someone gets eaten as it does 180000 damage over nearby people….that was causing us issues…how to get people close to the ball but close enough together without the wrong person getting hit – there really are only a few of us in a 10 man you know. I am not sure how close they need to be to the ball handler. It is definitely something we need to get sorted tonight as it the mechanic of the entire fight.
I wasn’t able to explain the fight properly either – I was having one of those nights where I would have been speaking better english if I was using pidgeon(sp?) english….I just couldn’t get the explanations out.
Overall though it was out first night and people I am sure were nervous and confused but we did well to get the first one down. We will get more done tonight I am sure 🙂
As a side note, I did also get my druid to 77 a couple of days ago; I will be much happier once she is 80 so I can start the cata quests on her!
