Woot! Progression!

April 14, 2011

This will be short (surprise!) because I’m really tired. We had a great week of raiding! The last few weeks have been a little slow because we’ve been training up 5 new people on our team. Atramedes in particular has been troublesome, but after 12 attempts yesterday we finally got him down. It was like killing him for the first time all over again. I wanted to take another screenshot, LOL.

Today we killed Valiona and Theralion on the fourth or fifth attempt, so we are now officially 7/12! Hooray for progression! We also got some good attempts in on the Twilight Ascendant Council. Our phase transitions were excellent, but we had some low DPS in the final phase. We kept wiping consistently around 5%. If we can step it up just a little I think we’ll down them next week.

I’ve seen a lot of people complain about the trash right before the Ascendant Council, and I agree – the trash there is insane! The two giant guys aren’t bad, but the room full of randomly pathing elementals that you’re supposed to pull two at a time – making sure you get complementary pairs, of course – is just crazy. We never seemed to get the right number/combination of elementals, so our healing team went nuts trying to keep everyone alive. We are amazing, if I do say so myself. Our Disc Priest was doing well over 20k hps + absorbs, and I think our Shaman and I were doing around 15k hps. (And destroying our mana pools in the process…) Hopefully we get better at those pulls so it’s not quite as stressful.

    Congratulations!

    And as long as nobody’s dead at the end, it doesn’t matter how much mana you use. Imho.

      It’s a good thing the trash fights were pretty short, because I didn’t have a spare gcd available in which to hit Innervate. Someone would have died in that 1 second, I kid you not.

        Macro it, my friend!

        Macro it to what? Innervate is on the GCD, and Blizzard has changed it so that you can’t macro together two spells that are both on the GCD… They didn’t want people to have 1-button rotations anymore. And anyway, I wouldn’t want to be accidentally hitting it when I still have lots of mana available.

    Don’t bother pulling the wind/earth guys in pairs. Their mechanics are meh. But the water/fires…. ugh, nerf please. We had a healer putting out 15k hps and she couldn’t keep herself alive! Hah!

      That’s good to know about the wind/earth guys. It might make that trash easier if we can single pull some of the wind/earth elementals to give us some space for pulling pairs of water/fire guys, if that makes sense.
