Did they sneak in a Firelands nerf that I missed? Seriously, I don't mean to belittle our raid group, but we waltzed in last night, standing at 4/7 and left 6/7. We, what, three shot (?) Baleroc. (I just had to sit in "brain freeze" pose for five minutes to come up with his name. That's how much of an impression he made on me. To be fair, it's totally a healer fight, and pretty much a tank and spank for me except for the whole crystal shard dance).
Domo was a bit more of a challenge, but we got him down with 15 minutes to spare in our two hour raid night. Enough for a quick Jenkins attempt on Rag. Considering how much we struggled on the early bosses, this was a cake walk. I'm hesitant to feel happy about, because I'm sure someone is going to say... oh yeah, they hotfixed a nerf last week, or something.
Really, it was business as usual for us. We aren't gearing any faster than we have been. We've stuck to our two-hours per week schedule with very little deviation. If anything, many of us are spending less time in game what with chasing non-internet dragons (Skyrim) in our free time.
So what's up with these two fights? Are they just easier to learn? Did we just have a... shhh... "on" night (don't jinx it)?
Okay, I'll ask. How did you guys find the first three bosses (Shan, Beth, Rhy) of FL in comparison to the last three (Alys, Bale, Domo)?
I could fight Alys every day of the week (I'm the Starfoxer). Despite the relative ease with downing Domo, I thought it had interesting mechanics. I liked the idea of letting us dictate phase changes. Bale was a nice respite from all the running around and dealing with crap of the other fights.
On the flip side, we two shot Shannox and then were stuck on him for like a month. There were some minor strategy things we had to work out, but it was rough. Rhyolith wasn't so bad, but it can still be tricky. Beth causes us to shudder. Still. Just when you have her- unlucky spiderling spawn! Yaaay.
What did you think? First half of FL = annoying? Second half = fun? It's okay. 4.3 is almost here. We don't have to tell 4.2 if you dish. It can be our little secret.
