Raid Report 29/01/13
Tanks: Slim and Doom
Healers: Sid, Slash, Arcahaz and Barks
Ranged: Zalid, Noheels, Ayumis and Aphaeas
Thanks to all of those who came and helped us out last night.
We went back to Garalon with an Awesome/Win collaboration and we didn't so too badly.
Our first attempt saw us hit the enrage timer at 19%, everything went perfectly, we just needed to boost out DPS.
The Archaz had some internet problems so we kicked him and Barks came and healed for us. Just so you know Akee, Barks is now a pro at kiting pheremones!
We had Barks, myself, Zalid and Ayumis kiting the pheremones, noheels and meki on the legs and slim tankign in his dps spec and gear.
We had a few very good attempts. We have this fight down to an absolute tee now but we need to push our DPS a shade harder. If we had a full healing team I would have considered using 2 healers and then we would have probably killed him, but with Barks learning the pheremone kiting we needed support from the third healer. It also meant that any silly mistakes were easily rectified as we had extra healing power.
Our final and best attempt saw him at 9% and our DPS was not the highest it had been all night, plus we lost a hunter early on, affecting his DPS, despite a ress. The healing team were absolutely spot on, the tanks knew exactly what they were doing and tactically we can't do any better. We simply need to push our DPS numbers that little bit harder. I found as the night went on my DPS got better as I managed to multi-dot more of the legs so I think with a bit of practice and perhaps some gear from MSV we will see this guy die very shortly.
As you all know I am now taking a week off. I may well make an appearence on Tuesday depending on work. If I do and we have our full healing team available I will consider two healing Garalon just to give us the extra DPS. We would then 5 kite the pheremones, only stacking to 15 so its less work for the two healers.
Good luck this week. I have no doubt that you will get everything cleared up to Garalon fairly quickly and there is no reason he shouldn't die this week.
