Fun & friendly guild with experienced members who are always happy to help. We have a couple of dedicated 10 man raid teams along with other organised events. All we ask is that you are polite and respectful of others.
We'd already made some progress on this boss a few weeks back, however with the addition of Mianah to our roster we decided to switch Malkarok as it gave us a better composition than we were previously trying to work with (3 rogues or 3 heals depending on set-up). It truth I thought we'd actually made some good progress on Spoils although it had been causing us some problems, mainly due to random individual mistakes, which ultimately lead to wipes. The DPS requirements also seemed pretty tight.
Coming back to the fight last week we were once again beset by the same issues and we spent a whole night wiping, although on a couple of occasions we did get excruciatingly close. Whilst extremely frustrating it did at least prove that if we were able to execute it properly we were more than capable of downing this boss. I certainly felt confident when we returned this week and almost from the start we we're making good headway. Unlike our normal mode kills it was Vipers side that was making quicker progress than Daarths, and more often than not those close calls we're because we simply didn't seem to have the necessary dps, which was surprising as both teams we're fairly evenly balanced. I had previously attributed this to having 2 rogues on our side which left meant if several sparks spawned in close succession then one would have to run out, thus resulting in a dps loss. In addition the fight isn't particularly melee friendly which lead to more than a few insta-deaths. With Mianah replacing Kza things should have been better although the reality was that we still seemed to be struggling. It wasn't until we'd wiped a few times and chatted about each others opening order that we realized that we we're dealing with a few extra sparks. Although there we're some jests in connection with this i'm still not entirely convinced it was a huge issue because on the kill we actually cleared the Mantid side with a good 45 secs spare. Either that or there was some reconsideration in box opening which made things easier.
With both teams making good time we set about tackling the second rooms. From a healing perspective i find this one easier because i don't have to deal with the constant damage from the Demolishers, or the need to run out and drop bombs ( Although this aspect was made much easier by having an extra ranged). The Mogu side went fairly smoothly if a little slower than normal. The only scary moment was when i ran in to a spark whilst on low health and died, but Daarth was quick in the rez and i was just able to pop a Tide to keep ppl up. Vipers side was once again back in the ascendance and having finished first sent Karogu and Mianah over to help. But we were pretty much done by the time they arrived, and so with about 7 secs left on the clock we were able to flip the switch and move up to 10/15 hc. Well done all.
P.s. Sorry if the report is a bit one sided. I can only really comment on what happened my side.
