Leader's Report 13/02/2011
As above, but with Dan stepping in for Contagion in shift 1, and Darksen in shift 2.
Bosses Killed: Conclave of Wind, Al'Akir, Cho'Gall [GUILD FIRST]
Conclave and Al'Akir were the usual story; roflstomp Lolclave, a few wipes on Al'Akir but nothing serious. We were able to get onto Cho'Gall, the main business of the night, early.
Decided from the outset to 2-heal it, with the aim of forcing Phase 2 to start before we had to kill a fourth add. It is a really simply fight, and with tank cooldowns we were able to get through the tank damage for the most part. Had melee stay on the boss, as post-nerf Klog is able to solo interrupt Depravity on the adds. Killed them by the steps, and had ranged group up at max range from their corpses. Used Slash's AoE slows plus mad damage to deal with the adds.
After our first 1% wipe, I worked out that we could *just* force phase 2 after only killing two adds. So we did that; a third add spawned with the boss on 37%, and Klog simply offtanked it whilst we burned down the boss. Got him to 25%, and therefore phase 2, with 2 seconds left on Fester Blood's cast timer. The big add despawned, and into phase 2 we went. Some imba DPS and interrupts on the tentacles, and some rather desperate healing from two very OOM healers, and the boss did die. Tier shoulders for Slash, imba mace for Denika, helm for DE, early night.
As always, Cho'Gall is only possible with very fast reactions to Worship. In contrast to previous nights, everyone was right on it from the start, which is why we were successful. I'm declaring Cho'Gall as 'pretty easy, really', but ONLY if we maintain that level of reaction to Worship.
We're 11/12! IMHO, we have all 11 on farm now, raid comp. permitting. We should be working on Nefarian, with the aim to kill him within a couple of weeks. For now, it's loot farming time.
With that in mind, please make a post in this forum listing ONLY which bosses, excluding Nefarian, hold MS upgrades for you. That's all I want to know. Please note - this does NOT mean I'll always put you in for that boss, but it does mean I'll make sure we're not DEing an item which could have upgraded someone.
If you don't post a list, don't complain if I sit you out. If you do post a list, sitll don't complain, because I'll have put someone else in who can use it :-p
