We tried to re-clear DS last night, I say tried as we managed to kill 2 bosses. Morchok and Yorsahj.
I was tanking – so I could attempt to get gear given we are now seeming to use me as tank, and although we didn’t wipe on Morchok it was damn close. I kept running out of cooldowns to pop to keep me alive and in the end I was healing myself almost more than I was tanking. I guess that’s the joy of having so much threat now after a certain period you never rally need to actually hit the mobs anymore.
We wiped 3 times on Zonozz, the timers for Psyhic drain were off, so I was hitting my cooldown when they had like 2 seconds to go, then it would go off about 15 seconds after the timer….or it would go off when the timer was saying it had 10 seconds to go. I was managing to stay alive mostly, however we were losing people early.
We also had someone else bouncing the ball, who had never done it before, and it was sort of happening…a little more practice for him and i think it will be fine. After the third wipe we decided to Yorsahj.
To be fair, most of us were also having weird lag issues, I hit a few of my spells and would have to wait 3-4 seconds for it to happen. Pulling Zonozz I hit avengers shield and nothing happened so I stopped running as I wasn’t sure I had actually hit it, the all of a sudden it was on.
Perhaps patch related? I don’t know – I should probably look into it.
I have barely been playing this last week, I have just been too tired in all honesty. I have been falling asleep on the couch after dinner at about 8pm. Not entirely sure why I am so tired, but I hope it passes soon 🙂
I had a minor meltdown last night, sucks to be a girl sometimes, anyway – i declined to raid as I just couldn’t handle my own lack of brain power last night, let alone dealing with 9 other people.
The guild got to Zon’ozz and couldn’t get passed him without me 🙂 Well I like to think it was me. Only because I bounce the ball and have done since we started learning the fight – being that I have cauterize as a fire mage it helps that I can take a hit 🙂 I would like to try it as frost as well because I have my ice shield. I tend to do most of the running with maybe one of the healers coming with me, so the damage can get quite high.
So I jumped online for him and Hagara – said basically nothing and just ensured they got through it because I would hate to think that me not raiding prevented them from getting through bosses. To be honest I am glad I did because our pally tank finally got gloves – something he has been waiting ages for and keeps missing out on.
We are hoping to have the full team on Sunday so perhaps we can actually kill Warmaster this week and move past the block of the attendance boss. Killing a new boss may give us a chance to recruit some more as well, propel us forward a little. We may even find spine dies quickly – fingers crossed 🙂
We finally got the warlord down tonight and if you can believe it, we one shot it.
We didn’t really have anything different tonight except a slightly better healer than usual and honestly it just melded perfectly. We had been doing a few attempts with 4 healers and everyone was thinking we should try that again but something was just screaming at me to do it with 3 healers.
So after much cheering we went to hagara and spent the rest of the night wiping on her, consistently under 50% and the last couple were 30%.
We were a little slow on the ice blocks unfortunately but we should have her this Thursday 🙂
All in all it was a positive night raiding and progress is always good for the morale of the guild.
