Last night, we made another stab at BoT. After only one attempt (amazingly easier with Nether Scion, Time Warden, and Whelps, rather than Shale, Time Warden, and Whelps) we downed Halfus in a single attempt. Granted, we had a bit of an issue with keeping the group together at first. A Ret Pally DC’d, and never came back, then our Guild Leader/Raid Leader had a power outage and couldn’t come back, and we ended up replacing both with more DPS. (dps Warrior switched to Tank so we wouldn’t have to pug a tank). With that done, we downed Halfus, with some amazing DPSers. A Shadow Priest hit 29k, a Hunter hit 27.5k, Enhance Shammy hit 27k, and the rest of our dps were still all over 15k, the top 5 being above 20k. However, we did have a low guy on the totem pole, the #7 DPS being a Warlock at 13k. Still, we downed Halfus easily, and then went ahead to Valiona and Theralion. We couldn’t manage to pull off that one, as a few people got pulled into the other dimension on one attempt, and another had some bad RNG placing a Shadow Breath attack turning to everyone right as we were on her tail. Half the team died there, including one of the healers (>.> Me).
Tonight, we make another stab, as we try weeknight raiding this time around, instead of weekend. We’ll see how it goes with more of our usual crew. (Greypaw, the raid leader, would have definitely done more DPS that that lock >.>)
