Wednesday raiding and no Thursday raiding thanks to SUCKY BLIZZ


You suck Blizz.  Right in the middle of raid time, oceanic servers.  We already copped a Tuesday - why can't the put it on peak time on US servers for once and let us at least raid!

It was certainly an interesting perspective looking at the Primordius and Dark Animus from Aza's point of view.  Primordius is still a boring fight for DPS.  Healer wise, it's more interesting as we actually have healing to do. Bish, Aza and Sev hadn't done Animus before and so we explained it to them and it sounded confusing at first but once you see it, it's easy.  The live anima were in slightly different positions but it was essentially the same.  We had a few messy starts but when we were getting the hang of it, we forgot to tell them to stop DPSing the huge anima golem and it died and it all went into the Dark Animus and poof we wiped!  The next attempt was fine.  Aza was REALLY bored - he said it was a really boring and stupid fight, and I can see why a DPSer would think it was boring - it's all about a systematic order, and not about pretty numbers.  As a healer it's interesting but I think next time it will be one of those fights we can substitute people in and out for so they can see it for themselves.  I killed Aza by dispelling him to early when he had low health which was probably a good thing coz he could go and watch TV whilst we killed it

So I was looking forward to 2 nights on Iron Qon.  Now we only have one night.  Which won't give us much opportunity to improve and if we don't get it this week, what's going to happen next week?  Extend?  I think if Iron Qon goes down, we will extend.  But we'll just have to wait and see.

  1. I also got to check my emails and youtube while I waited on that horrible fight. I thought Primordius was a waste...

    It didn't feel like an accomplishment at all, that's what annoys me the most.

    1. You really ARE a fast reader! Both those fights I have to do stuff but I can imagine if there was lots of standing around with no healing I would be bored too.

  2. FWIW, those of us on the East Coast are a bit annoyed at the West Coast timing for these downtimes as well. Tuesdays are all during the morning and into the afternoon, which means that I simply give up on WoW on Tuesdays.

  3. I'm not blizzards friend atm either, I was really looking forward to raiding tonight. We were doing some great attempts on our latest boss grr. Can you schedule another night? We're trying to but its looking unlikely since people are already committed to other stuff on the nights we dont raid.

    1. We probably won't have enough people as they organise other stuff now on our off days. Bummed for you too!

  4. Bleh! I feel like two nights would give us the kill but one night doesn't give us much time. Hopefully though!

  5. I was secretly happy they went down. Concur wanted me to heal for them and I didn't have the heart to say no (They gave me loot last time I went with them, so now I feel obligated! The absolute last thing I want to feel about WoW right now).

  6. For the dps, who thinks dark animus is boring , they are wrong. Have you ever tried playing ping pong with that teleport debuff(Matter swap). As soon as that debuff goes out, go to the furthest corner of the room and wait and see the look on their face when they get dispelled. Also if u get targeted and u have dispells, then its even better, as u get to choose who is the poor fellow getting teleported, just run away so that ur target is furthest away from you and dispell urself when 5 sec on debuff.
