Ding Dong The Hag Is Dead!
Yay! Another thing to cross off the Bucket List!
For the past month, Team Bite Me has been a revolving door. Honeymoons, digging up dinosaurs, work schedules and ISP eating interwebs has been the bane of the group’s existance and only added to the frustration of the proverbial wall we were banging our heads against for the Heroic Hagara fight.
The credit for that kill goes to more than 10 people. It goes to about 15-20 people who had a hand in our attempts:
Crix, Reluu, Tsorb, Dannan, Freggos, Truffle, Nos, Gamma, Morgish, Me, Haemic, Mavros, Mack, Chronoz, Angband, Cali and Star. If I missed anyone I sorry! Let me know because this post is editable! 🙂
Even with the absences we were able to keep practicing, which did help. So, on to the recap!
Monday night. Not our normal raid night. This was our “make up” day from last Wednesday. We had to call it on Weds because Crix and Reluu ISP shit the bed. The majority of the group said they could make it.
And half the group ended up being jacked up anyway. Truffle was digging up dinosaur bones in Utah, Morg (I assume) was at work and it was Freggos’ turn for his internetz to fail. So we had 3 “fill ins”, 1 role switch and 1 toon switch. Granted, 2 of the fillins were guildies who had further heroic progress in other guilds so they don’t exactly qualify as “fill in” in the sense that we just pulled in any ole scrub to fill a spot. Not that Haemic is a scrub! He’s OP too! ❤
So our group comp was:
- Tank: Nos (Chronoz OT went LazerBoom in Truffle’s absence)
- Heals: Reluu, Tsorb, Mavros
- DPS: Glace (Haemic’s DK), Dannan, Gamma, Crix’s hunter Mathayos and me go meow
You know a hunter is super important on that fight with the strat we use. When the hunter is missing the strat goes boom. It’s a good thing Crix has an OP hunter too.
And having me as kitty was also super useful. That pain in the ass lightning phase where everyone takes a metric fuckton of damage? Ima bear! RAWR! Extra 37k health plus 4 pc tank CD? Oh yes. It was nice to feel useful, considering the rest of the fight I was pretty useless. Frost phase? gogo travel form with a mangle here and a rip there. DPS the boss phase? I was chasing the bitch more often than I was getting any real dps on her. Lightning phase? I WIN! Booya!
For a month we couldn’t get through one lightning or one frost phase. Sometimes we got through one with a few casualites. We never made it to the next phase after getting through one of either lightning or frost. Last night I don’t know what happened. All of a sudden, we get through frost, nobody’s dead!
We get through ice tombs. Next up lightning! Ima bear! RAWR! Gogo barkskin, SI and super OP 4pc frenzied regen! We lived! Wooo! pewpewpewpewpewpewpewpewpew. Ice tombs. Healer blocked! Get her out! Frost phase! 15%!
Me: ZOMG NOBODY DIE!
Frostfake on me. Travel form dance around watery entranchemnt. Frostflake on me. Travel form dance around watery entrenchment. Frostflake on me.. OH COME ON!!! We make it through! Everyone lived!
Crix: KILL THE BITCH!
WIN!!! Achievements roll. Reported for spam. Reluu rocking her first heroic piece! BIS healer ring! wooo!
At this point nobody paid any attention to the iceblock that just killed Mavros after Hag died. Oops! Sorry Mav! ❤
Can you tell I’m still all giddy and hyper and excited?? Weeeee!
