We didn't get much interest in a second mythic day last week, but this week we managed to scrape just enough people to raid. I was happy. A whole do to work on council properly!
People tell you how easy it is, but it's never really easy till you do it.
We were having issues with a few things. Positioning was the big thing. Where do you put the ranged group that gets those bloodboil stacks and then we have to swap, and how far away do you put them?
Then there were the reaps. People were dying to reap. One of the problems was that one set of healers would be far away because it was their turn to get bloodboils and then the reap people were out of range.
Also, we hadn't quite worked out our cooldowns for Jubei'thos' multiple spinning copies. I was so busy trying to heal up people for reap that we didn't weren't using them for the spinning phase.
And then there were ghosts. I was hopeless at avoiding them, as I was smooched up against the wall but I wasn't the only one dying to ghosts.
So we changed it up a bit. We moved to the middle, which meant I could reach all the reaps. We saved our healer cooldowns for the mirror images, and then we ran into the corner when ghosts came, because apparently it's "safe" there. We had a 1% wipe where Kyxyn was on his own solo-ing Dia, but that didn't last as long as we hoped! But on our last attempt of the night we got our kill!
Poor Sars had been dragged along as the 5th healer. I might have forgottten to mention we were doing mythic (and he was surprised and shocked that he came) but he got his first mythic kill so that's good for Mondays. Just need to get him geared up now.
So our attendees were:
Tanks: Aimei, Kyxyn
Healers: Bish, Navi, Angry, Rag, Cptsars
DPS: Sev, Aza, Ctwin, Ultra, Reyuk, Danleet, Celaena, Sonuku, Nez, Lushen, Anghelz, Crooked, Peggysui
Now that we have the positioning right, it shouldn't take that long again to get the fight down. Though, I have to admit that it's a really good fight for druid healers. But mana was a bit of a commodity!
Well done Frostwolves and Onineko!
