This is a follow-up from yesterday’s Ruby Sanctum post, of course. The run I had to bail on two nights ago didn’t get Halion down, so last night we got the band back together and tried again. And again.. And again.. And again (a few more times).. And.. KILLED HIM/HER/IT!!!!!
There was lots of gnashing of teeth and changes to some of the strategies and so on and so forth during our 5 or so wipes. But, in the end, we did it! It was not very difficult (although we lost a bunch of ppl in the Twilight realm to the beams when we were at about 2%) but it takes a LOT of coordination. Watching the % Twilight/Physical during Phase 3 is essential as is avoiding the beams in the Twilight realm during Phase 2 and 3. Handling the decursing and where you move (out of the raid!) when you get the curse is important too.
While I said it wasn’t difficult, realize that we are a 25man raid where most, if not all, of the people have been doing ICC over and over and over since it’s been out. We’ve got pretty good gear at this point. I’m not sure where RS is supposed to be on the difficulty scale compared to ICC. I think the coordination part was important and I actually enjoyed the mechanics of the fight there and if this is a taste of what we will see on the boss fights in Cataclysm, I’m excited!
Ok, just wanted to update you all on our success. I didn’t get any loot, but what I saw looked nice. A trinket dropped that had ArP and +AP on proc that my Hunter was crying over.. (Yes, I brought the Druid) I wonder if we are going to go do this in 10man tonight? If so, I’m gonna try to bring the hunter.. Just watch, boomkin loot will drop.. ;P
