Ok, a bit more info on last nights raid.
For the 3rd week running we were at the Lich King (last week the lag monster killed us).
Peeps who were on raid:
Tanks: Urumqi, Delarath, Thornstar
Healzorz: Vipera, Cenaria, Darieth, Fluffles, Barkhoof, Horseradish,
Pewpew: Leegund, Nova, Blackstorm, Redrothkin, Arashu, Dysec, Isilindal, Foosfighting, Petarch, Surprised, Klogician, Belimawr, Carpel, Mightybear, Selwyn, Jecaa (woo)
Thanks also to Oskrilth who stepped out when asked, and to Selwyn who relogged for us.
Despite having a few peeps who hadn't seen it before, we got stuck in - phase1 went much cleaner than last wek when connection problems prevented clean dispels. As usual, phase2 2was the sticking point - we spent about 90 minutes learning it and getting better at smacking the valkyrs and moving from defile.
Eventually we got into phase 3 with only a few dead peeps around, and from there took him down without too much fuss. Special mention to our healers, who on our kill were reduced from 6 to 3 for the majority of the fight due to a disconnect and a valkyr or two. Clearly only 3 healers are needed
A big thanks to everyone who came along last night - especially those of you who have cleared this content months before and had no reason to come back and help boost a few newer players through.
If you are one of the newer players who got boosted, don't expect this kind of thing to continue in Catacylsm - at least not until we're at the very end of the expansion cycle - get yourselves geared and prepared and you can see the content much earlier
Player of the night award goes to Urumqi. There were a number of people who let me know throughout the night that his threat generation was great. Not only that but he managed to stay alive when tanking, plus gave us much needed stunning on the valkyrs. Wish all warrior tanks i meet were as reliable!
Anyway, that's the last team uber raid I'll be running this expansion. I'll still be around to do some old world stuff and maybe some city raids, so keep an eye on forums and the calendar for info. Mainly I'll be off playing FM 2011.
Here's a screeny of the kill. GJ everyone!
