Went straight to rhyolith.
Picked up where we left off last week - had good steering and add management.
We were still poor at avoiding lava lines, and overall raid coordination.
Had an hour of wipes when we had him between 40 and 80% and we didnt seem to be making much progress.
We tried one attempt with me driving not just the boss, but the raid - calling raid movement, and lava line timing. When we did this we 1-shot it - went straight into phase 2, had a well timed tranquility and hymn to top everyone off, and we burned him down reasonably easy.
My dps numbers were awful, as almost all my attention was on either steering the boss, or managing the raid, but as long as the group got it down I dont really care
Had a quikc break then went to Baleroc.
Took us a while to get the basics, but our last attmpet got him to 30%.
Think we were close to the enrage timer (6 minutes) but I'm not too worried about that just yet.
I'm now convinced the crystals tick for 25 seconds, so we should be able to split the debuffs into 12/13 for our dps.
Since last night I've done a bit more reading, and there are many options to the fight - 1-tanking it for example, or stacking the 1st crystal stacks to a huge amount to help the healers out early on, but we can tweak things to suit us next time we're there.
Feedback on Baleroc (and rhyolith) welcome from everyone
Tuesday it'll be tier-11 stuff, and next thursday/sunday we'll go for whichever boss I think we have the best chance at.
Jecaa x1 (shiny sword, pewpew!)
