Taken at the Moment of my Death
Our guild is now 10/13 heroic Throne of Thunder. The only bosses we have left to kill are H. Dark Animus, H. Lei Shen and Ra-Den. It would be nice if we could get them down before 5.4 drops, but there’s not a lot of time left. Also, these encounters are HARD.
Like, “Well, at least we’re wiping quickly” hard.
Last night Dark Animus went something like this:
OW! Ow ow ow! Why are they hitting so hard?! Oh god, why?!?!
SPLAT! Tank dead.
SPLAT SPLAT SPLAT! One healer and two DPS dead.
RUN AWAY! Try to brez someone but– SPLAT! Now I’m dead.
“This is a wipe guys.” NO, REALLY?!?!?
“You have wiped on Heroic Dark Animus at 1 min 4 sec. You have 20 wipes on this difficulty.”
…Thanks for rubbing it in, boss mod.
Beautiful Image of Death
In between wipes I was chatting with Prinnie from That Was an Accident! on Real ID and she reminded me to take some epic screenshots of fail to post for everyone to enjoy. I’m usually really terrible about remembering to hit Print Screen, especially when I’m in combat. (I mean, come on, I’m trying to keep everyone alive, hitting Print Screen is dangerous!) But there were a few moments (warning: understatement!) when death was inevitable and it really didn’t matter if I stopped to document our demise. Though I had to be quick, because the wipes happened so darn FAST.
My favourite is this one. I think it really gives a sense of what a clusterfuck last night was.
I’m taking melee hits of over a million. Also, I grabbed the shot just as I died. Xperl is showing me as dead but Healbot hasn’t quite got the memo yet.
We did improve over the course of the evening though. We’re hoping that if we get the first two minutes of the fight down the rest will be relatively easy. *fingers crossed*
