raid 9th june, proper report, although coot did a good job
Goffik, Ulthane, Coot, Wyrmy, Barkhoof, Oskrilyth, Isilindal, Leegund, Bimble, Belara, Hubi, Jecaa.
stepped out due to many signups: Dreigau
We had 12 players, so i rotated 2 out fo reach boss. Here is who skipped which boss:
Halfus: Bimble, Hubi
V/T: Bimble, Belara
Ascendant Council: Isil, Leegund
Chogall: Barker, Oskrilyth
One shot on Halfus (as it should be), V/T (which we are coming to expect), Ascendant Council (which was a pleasant surprise - gj ulthane for the first time seeing it all, and i think the difference is phase3 healing, so gj healbots).
That took us just over an hour, so we had a lot of time to work on Chogall himself.
I decided that last time we were here we (me really) worried too much about P2 positioning. I wanted to go for P2 without moving tte boss at all - less worries for the tank and healers about moving, and the dps dont have to think at all (which suits us).
We had a couple of goes to get used to the tentacle spawns - by now our phase 1 was very smooth - our hunters are fantastic on those adds, and our interrupts were getting better each attempt.
Once we had a rough plan for tentacle interrupts we were getting him very close (5/6%). After our 'final' attempt of the night got him to 21k health, we decided to go for 1 more which turned out to be succesful - everything frrom dispels in P2 to shadow crash avoidance and tentacle duties went silky smooth.
In the end the small things that helped were:
-extra healing from leegund and ulthane, especially during shadows orders.
-having a clear tentacle interrupt rotation ready, and being flexible with it.
-having 2 healers that work together. there were lots of times when one healer would cover the other when mana was mismatched or a cooldown was used. nice play healers.

Isilindal, ulthane, Leegund.
- quick note about tier loot. If you win a main spec piece you are still legible to roll on a tier item that raid. It stops peopel 'saving' their loot spot if they think they might get tier gear
sunday will depend on signups - it'll either be BWD farm or alakir. Start researching tictacs on Nef please, and also if you see firstcontact, give him a poke
