Raid 29th may.
Goffik, Firstcontact, Wyrmy, Barkhoof
Dreigaui, Belara, Hubitrix, Jecaa
on raid just for conclave: ultahen, dudutroll
on raid for alakir and chimeron: coot, bimble.
not on raid due to too many signups: isilindal, surprise
So we went for conclave of wind first, I wanted to give ultahne and dud a look at it -we did fine and 1-shot it which is always nice when you do that with new players.
Swapped bimble and coot in for those 2 so we had people who had already been working on alakir.
We were finally entering phase 3 regularly, which is a really nice change. We tried having hubi delay the death of the first add a few seconds and that seemed to make sure that feedback stacks never fell off.
Also I tried to emphasise a clean phase 1 and controlled phase2 - it massively helps out with phase 3 if you can get through the first parts of the fight without unnecessary damage.
We didn't seem to get very far in phase3 - so had a short break and came back with a 3-step plan for success.
I asked everyone to rebind their 'fly-down' key to soemthing very convenient
I asked everyone to watch Goffik as their reference point and not worry at all about dps
Finally we tried moving from the bottom of the boss to the top then back to the bottom after every 2 lighning clouds - doing this gave us much more space to work in, so we didnt have to be so tight to the clouds.
In the end the first time we tried this we got it down, with only 3 palyers left standing
Really nice to finally get the boss cleared, it's taken us a long time, but it feels all the sweeter for it.
After that we quickly went to Chimeron to finish him up which was a nice 1-shot.
Plan for tuesday is BoT. Plan for next week is to start working on Cho'gall - read up, check videos, ask team awesome.
