Mythic Star Augur Etraeus!

Mythic Star Augur Etraeus was a truly fun experience, such a good boss on mythic compared to how it is on heroic and normal. We had some of our best raids in a row while working on this boss. The focus was right where it needed to be, without it feeling tiresome and like we were getting stuck, even after we were getting into the high 10s of attempts. I think it took us 101 goes or something along those lines to get it down, with several VERY close calls before finally we killed it just as the etire raid blew up, in what has to be one of our most fun boss kills! xD Well done everyone and thank you for an excellent raid, and for all the fun times in NH! Next week we move onwards to ToS!

Mythic Tichondrius downed!

In what has to be one of our finest raids in NH, and on our second evening of even attempting Tichondrius, we smacked him hard and he fell over dropping some nice shinies for us :) Well done everyone and thank you very much for a truly awesome raid! xD All in all I don't think we spent more than one raid evening on him in total in terms of time, and the progression was nice and steady from start to finish. Onwards to Starbro next!

Mythic Botanist Dead

We managed to kill Mythic Botanist last night. After a few set-up pulls we clicked and got it to < 10%. Then after a few more practice tries we got it down, a very satisfying kill. Fifth Sin is now 6/10 mythic in NH, pretty good for our 2-raid per week efforts. Well done to everyone who contributed to progress on this boss, particularly good work on refining tactics from our tanks Gwaycia and Maelas. Next target will be mythic Tichondrius.

Mythic Spellblade down!

Tonight we were in the zone again, so in no time in only 3 goes we smacked her down and stole all her stuff! Well done on a focused start to the raid everyone! :) The kill has been in range for a while now, all it took was for us to be rested and rdy and to work out the last details towards the end of the fight.

This fight for us has been plagued by various bugs to do with the souls, they tend to knock the tanks through walls and get stuck in bushes and that sort of thing, also lots of fun line of sight and our of range issues, primarily for the healers but also to some degree for the ranged dps I think. Beyond that it is also a demanding fight in terms of possitioning, and the majority of our prgression on this fight was learning to do the frost debuffs flawlessly. It did not help that for some of raids where we spent time on this boss we were a tad low on ranged dps. All in all considering the extra challengs we faced due to this I'd say we did quite alright on this boss, it took us a litle bit longer than anticipated truth be told, but even spending time on a boss attempting it with a disfavourable setup can teach you things :)

It is also worth noting that in the same raidevening we got Botanist to the point where we are alread looking at the finnishing touches, so he should follow shortly as long as we don't run into any unforseen problems. Tichondrius is next on the menu following Botanist, and then ofc onwards to StarBro.

killpic and video to follow once they are uploaded.

Krosus mythic drowned in his own puddle!

Last night we spent about half the raid or so on this boss before we got it down. In total I believe we spent about 3 or 4 raids to kill it. Considering how many stories we've heard about this boss being a grind and how many guilds have given up on it or disbanded due to it we found it a surprisingly pleasant boss to do. Not that we were fearing anything that drastic, but we WERE expecting more of a grueling grind than what we found. Speaking for myself, and I believe the vast majority of the raiding team, we had a good time while progressing on this boss. Once we got found the right tactic for spreading to soak the adds it didn't take us long to down it. We do realise we that timing was likely on our side, with the recent 7.2 buffs obviously helping us out some. Even so for a boss that gave so many so much grief we found it surprisingly alright.

It it a boss that requires everyone to participate in the mechanics throughout the fight to get it down, picking up on this theme where trilliax left off. I was glad to see this went well, and I think we had the requirement and timing for healing and dps down fairly quickly, and other than a fair amount of wipes due to lag, bugs and personal mistakes we spent the majority of time working on the add soaking, trying various ways of dividing the raid. Once we found a way that worked for us the results were immidiate and then all that remained was the fine-tuning for one or two critical moments as well as the very end of the fight.

Other than finding the right way to deal with the adds our biggest issue was that damned corpserun, we wasted more time on that than we did attempting the boss until we got into the habit of ensuring we had a soulstone/CR/pylon for each and every wipe. That corpsrun can go fuck itself :P Later we got to see it some more while working on Spellblade, oh joy! We have since instituted the same ban on cliking that release button...
