It would figure after ranting about the evils of Malygos pugs that I’d run into a great one 😛
I saw someone adverting in trade for a tank for the weekly after our 25 man raid. I waited a few minutes and finished up what I was doing on an alt and then hopped over to ask if they still needed me. Well, they did. 🙂
I wasn’t impressed by the raid leader’s full pvp gear on armory, but eh, some pvp geared people are still pretty good at dps. And I think every single person in the group asked who the tank was… despite me being invited as the tank and saying I was tank several times in response in raid. This wasn’t entirely encouraging either, but hey… I joined and I’m going to give it my best.
We got the last healer in raid as the raid leader suddenly realized he’d forgotten to ask about the key. I piped up and said not to worry, that I had it [My warrior had the quest from it in fact :D]. The last healer then asks who the tank is… What was said next gave me warm fuzzies.
“Odyyn is our hero, the tank and key holder”.
I knew which person to vigilance, having run with the particularly high threat hunter before [no, not you this time George]. And away we went!
We got a brief explanation of the fight and several people hadn’t done it before.
The first attempt went really well. We had the dps warrior dc during phase 2 outside the bubble during the breath… so problematic. Odyyn ended up on a platform since we only had like 2 melee and only one of them knew to hop on one. We dropped on drakes and several died right away but the rest of us took it to the enrage – with 300k left.
Sweet. As long as no one left, we’d probably get it second try.
Run back. Rebuff. Raid leader asked if anyone had questions and clarified a couple points for the people new to the fight who were confused about one thing or another.
And we proceeded to kill him 😀 We dropped on drakes with all 10 people up and no one died immediately. We had three people get decent stacks on the boss [and one of those was really high] and well… he died 😀
The raid leader thanked us for our patience and I have to admit I was surprised. I don’t see a lot of patient people with that fight. I also don’t see a lot of people willing to try to learn phase 3.
One of the dps spoke up and said that if we ever needed a dps, to feel free to friend her. She then added “Not that dps aren’t a dime a dozen”.
I replied, “Patient dps aren’t.”
