We spent some time last night bashing our faces against the Lich King again. I’m really not liking the mechanics of that fight. I get it, but I find, in phase 2, the combination of the big puddles of DEATH and the Val’Kyr Moving Company a tough combination to keep track of. I think the tip is everyone needs to move out of the center after the Val’Kyr picks someone up. We had way too many times when the puddle was situated directly in the middle of the platform. That isn’t so good..
What we DID do, though is get him down, once, to 42% (42!!). We were really close to the next transition, but we just broke down. It didn’t help that we lost a DPS pretty early on in phase 2. For those Val’Kyr you need every DPS able to help out. We’re planning on going back to the LK on Sunday and maybe, hopefully get him down. I think we are planning on trying out the hard modes once we do that.
No raid tonight for me. We’re recording TNB at the usual time, 8pm PST and we have Ophalie from The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon. You can join us in the chat room to listen and, well, chat. Hope to see you there!
