Nurfed downs Garrosh on December 8th. Yep, that’s right. We managed to go through all 17 phases of the fight.
I have gotten numerous tells asking me why we took so long.
Well for starters, we, as a guild, love to celebrate. And celebrate early we do. We throw Christmas parties in November, before thanksgiving, because fuck it. yolo. We also love to take afk breaks in between pulls. I mean with the fight being roughly 53 mins long, so how can you blame someone for taking a leak, or 5? And when we say raid starts at 6 PST, that means you launch the game at 5:59. If there’s a 500+ queue, we’ll wait for you. I mean, that’s what I did (not the waiting part).
I have also gotten requests to explain the last phase since it is a heroic only feature and not everyone out there has seen it. I’ll try to be as accurate as possible using true and tangible facts.
When Garrosh hits 1% in the phase previous to the last, you immediately teleport to Stormwind. There’s some RP and the adds are still running around being kited but it’s short, like 30 secs. When you get there, you won’t be able battle res because you absolutely have to use them before that point, on more important things like weapon drops, embodied fear adds, etc. After that, it’s really straight forward. The boss heals a few %, then you have an alt kite a huge ball and make it clash into him when he’s at 100 energy. Dodge fire – this is where you can use whole room – stack, don’t stack, move while stacked, unstack, build stacks, Toshax, restack, prestack… and that’s it.
All in all, it’s good to be done. I would like to take the time and opportunity to thank everyone in guild for showing up for 8 hours every week so that we could finally get a kill. But more so, special commendations to the following people:
Setsuni, for always taunting adds to prevent them from running lose in the raid
Pelenthius, for most robust internet connection known to man
Phyxius, for 2nd most robust internet connection
Roidzillaz, for 3rd
Cohren, for kiting the adds on phase 3
Bill, for healing
Lazorz, for never fucking up anything on that fight
Notskot, for his off-the-charts dps
Aevd, for the same reason
Toshax, for always being in the right place at the right time for weapon drops
Scarlynn, for his precise timing on taking resses
And of course, Mappr, for carrying the raid and always excelling at engineers
So that’s it. We’ll probably be raiding 4 hours a week next expansion, so if you want an easy life and free loot, message Biffins.
