Leader's Report for Donkey 29/08/2010
Superb raid. I decided to implement a rotation system, like Team Epic have done for some time, and I think it worked well. 29 competent, geared raiders showed up, and instead of sending 4 people away, everyone missed one or two bosses and everyone got to raid. I'd welcome any thoughts about how that worked for you.
A fantastic guild first kill tonight, Saurfang Heroic. We're now 8/12 in ICC25 heroic, which is fantastic going. Next in our sights are Lady Deathwhisper and Professor Putricide.
Saurfang himself is certainly a difficult fight. Because of the rotation system I was able to stack us with ranged and healers, though there's no reason that the melee couldn't handle an add or two if that was all I had. We managed to restrict him to 6-7 marks, which is just about healable, and with a rather risky call to ignore the last wave of adds, we managed to kill him with a couple of seconds to spare before his beasts 1-shotted all the melee!
Everything else was smooth sailing, except for some failing on VDW at the end, but I'll put that down to fatigue.
Tomorrow's aim is to kill the Princes heroic, BQL heroic and VDW heroic. Depending on time, we may clear ICC25 or go to Ruby Sanctum for trinket farming.
Thanks everyone, a very enjoyable raid.
