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. Screenshot to follow. 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...

Mythic Guarm is dust.. or should I say foam? :P

We decided to just spend the last part of the raid tonight to get his boss out of the way, it's not been a focus for us to get it so we've just done it now when we had some time left over :)

Trilliax Mythic down! + Odyn Mythic swatted :P

It didn't take us long tonight to down Trilliax on mythic difficulty! As soon as we worked out who eats cakes when, it more or less fell over.

After that we headed over to ToV just for the sake of getting some of those bosses out of the way on mythic as well as we skipped them in favour of focusing on NH previously. Odyn went down pretty quick, and had we had the time for more than a couple of propper attempts on Guarm so would he have. ToV hasn't rly been a focus for us, but we might just head back there again at some point to finnish it off :) Mby even see if Helya is amenable to go down on us? :p


Well done everyone on the progression in Nighhold so far! Time to climb some of those walls now, we should be attempting Krosus most likely this coming week xD
