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

Chronomatic Anomaly Mythic down!

After much adjusting and testing of tactics we finally blasted down Chronomatic Anomaly on mythic difficulty in the Nighthold! Well done everyone, it was a team effort and all the more fun for it :) It took us a fair amount of wipes, and was certainly a fair step up for us comapred to Skorpyron. We hear good things about cake boss though xD

Heroic Nighthold Cleared! Skorpyron mythic killed!

Tonight's raid was another good one :) 2 progression kills, heroic Nighthold cleared and our first mythic kill on Skorpyron. Well done everyone!

We started out with downing Elisande in record time, went MUCH faster than it did previously (we assume in part due to her retuning). This was the second raid where we got to Gul'dan. We spent about an hour and a half working on him (8 pulls I believe), mainly just adjusting how to deal with phase 3.


WIth the time left we then went and stomped Skorpyron on mythic, who was quite frankly easier to kill than Gul'dan HC.
