Oh, I Remember This

Stands in Bad has recently added Nef to our list of Bosses We Are Chewing On (Cho’gall being the other).  The truth of the matter is that he’s going to take some time to down, and I’m okay with that.  We probably need more gear as well as practice–I’m not the only one still half in blues, thanks to the loot gods raining cloth and mail upon our heads.

Farming the earlier parts of the instance for gear to kill the end bosses?  Gee, this feels familiar!  It brings to mind walking uphill, both ways, in the snow…

It might not take that long, really–we’re already down to clearing farm content in one night, which is why we’re adding the previously ignored Throne to our list.  Sure, it’s only two bosses, but it might add some variety to our second day wipe nights.  We can focus on certain bosses based on our raid comp for the night, perhaps  (WTB 1x mage for Nef). 

I’m sure everyone is noting the stark contrast between Cata and Wrath raiding.  I for one enjoy it–the bar doesn’t seem to be set TOO high, we’re making steady progress while boss kills are still enough of a struggle that they mean something. 

Of course, ask me what I think after several more hours spent wiping on Nef because I apparently can’t kite.

    I’m definitely liking the new raid environment. My guild’s normally been getting a new boss every week or two, without hitting any Putricide-esque brick walls. Atramedes and Chimaeron are definitely going to take some effort, though.

    Andy, that’s about how we were too… until we reached… I think Atramedes, and Chimeron. Atra took a couple weeks. We killed Ascendant council the week after that, and then Chimeron took another couple weeks.. Cho’gall has been frustrating for us. Nef, at this point, is almost an lol moment. We’ve had bad luck with gear drops, like Amber said, so i’m hoping it’ll get easier as more people gear out.

    For the record, I strongly recommend killing Al’akir once and once only…. he drops random loot and whether or not he is even possible is very RNG… like everyone’s not so favorite faction champions in toc. P1… RNG nightmare… P2 actually controllable… P3 3D nightmare. And the fight is arranged so that you have to succeed at the P1 RNG dice rolling to even attempt the two phases that you have to learn instead of just be lucky. Nine solid hours of wiping for 2 malestrom crystals and an achievement. Never, never again.
