We went to MSV for a warm-up and so our rogues could maybe get some daggers off the Stone Guard. 1 wipe due to a healer disconnect and us being rubbish.
Think Ross got a dagger from his bonus roll - grtz Ross!
Went from there to HoF for the first time.
Zorlok went down on our first attempt - the only thing that was an issue was the attenuation - we lost half the raid to it but by then the boss was down to 15% and we were well ahead of the enrage, so we 5-manned it (I say 'we' but I was the first to die).
Am hoping next time we can get it down more smoothly.
Tayak was a bit tougher - first attempt we got to the wind tunnel phase, but immediatley died. We tweaked things so our healers would have a chance of keeping us alive - holy pally and resto shaman not the best at healing on the run
After that we had a few silly wipes, but got it down on our 5th or 6th go - again with only 5 players alive - 5-man is the new 10-man!
I think LFR has been helpful in learning these fights - although the numbers are much tougher, the mechanics were nearly identical - in MSV LFR you didnt need to watch the mechanics at all so there wasn't much to be learned.
Overall very good - 2 new bosses down in 1 night. And we welcome Seffora to the raid team - we've had some great hunters raid with us in the past, and it's nice to have a new one, even if his Ventrilo-skills are lacking
on monday we'll be hitting GARALON and, if he dies, the next boss (the one with all the adds) so read up!
also - update your boss mods!
and - make sure you bring consumablessss
and - double check your loot table for first 2 bosses in MSV - then i'll know if it's worth going there again. Remember now we're in HoF we get better loot
finally - thanks for understanding when i ask you to sit-out. Having a larger roster is great as it means the raid team doenst miss a raid, but obviously I have to rotate folks in/out.
P.S. ICC/DS run this saturday, 7:30!
