We started the raid really late last night, in large part because our hunter has this strange obsession with doing things OUTSIDE. WTF, soccer? We only have one hunter in our raiding core right now, and he’s our only replen, so…yeah.
Needless to say that by the time he showed up, we were ready to go!
Thorim took a few tries. We ended up going for a 4/6 split-DK tank, pally healer, shaman and kitty down the gauntlet, everyone else in the arena. We threw the shaman and kitty down the hall to help control the Acolyte mods that gave us so much trouble before. That second mini boss can be a real bitch.
Poor Ky had been dragged in on his priest…as holy, so we were a lovely pair of nubs that night. It took a bit before we figured out positioning and stopped making Fail Angels. In the end we stood on the edge of the inner circle, and healed through the hammer’s damage on everything. For our final, successful attempt I sneakily went back disc, and all was right in my world. Honestly, Thorim himself is a chump. The trick is just getting to him!
And then…then it was time for Freya trash.
I…hate…Freya trash. We spent a lot of time wiping on it the when we first tried her, weeks ago. It was terrible, and spawned my saying “TRASH IS SRS BZNS”. My camera bobs on the foliage, so without even thinking, I scroll in closer. The problem with scrolling in closer is that it keeps me from seeing storm clouds…and what happens when I can’t see storm clouds?
I did a lot of cussing, mostly aimed at myself. So we clear the trash, leaving blood smears along the way, and…then it’s technically time to end the raid. Fuck that! We decide to give Freya at least one attempt, and Mach makes some flippant remark about just having to one shot her.
…so we did.
Was it pretty? Nooo. We lost both Macharious (tank) and Shamina (…do I have to tell you?) but a battle rez and an ankh fixed that. For once, I didn’t die. I stayed disc for it, if you were wondering. :D
It was a good night, all considering, and Lyr now has another pair of pants (running joke: she gets more pants as gear than anything else, I swear).
