This Week in Raiding…

July 4th, 2009

After getting Mimiron down last week, our eyes quickly fixed on General Vezax.

But we know that we still have some issues with the Keepers, and they take a while to get down, so we might not really see him until we’ve been able to master those fights!

So we pushed through Flame Leviathan +1, XT-002, Kologarn and Auriaya in our first night.  We’ve been having issues with Thorim, and even thought we got Mimiron down last week, we never quite got Thorim.  Well, this week wasn’t looking much better…  Thorim’s disconnect roulette, combined with some other various connection issues presented too much for us, and we were forced to retreat to the Assembly of Iron and Ignis.

Wednesday night we went in with a plan:  Mimiron first.  Tired of dealing with Thorim, we wanted to see if we could get him down a second time… and we did!

In fact, we ONE-SHOTTED him!  Huzzah!

And more importantly, we got Thorim down!  It took us 3 or 4 tries, but we did it.  I think we’ve improved on some things, and I look forward to next week to see how we do again.

Took out the other keepers, and by the second half of Thursday night’s raid, we were face to face with General Vezax.  After his brutal and annoying no-pets-allowed trash, we were finally ready to give it a go!

And it was no where near as bad as I thought it would be… at least for me :)   I wouldn’t want to be a healer or even a true caster in that fight!  But we seemed to get pretty good after our first couple tries, and got him to 28% at our best.  I think if we speed up our trash-killing, we’ll be able to get him down next week… and then it’s on to YOGG!  Wow, I can’t believe we’re finally nearly the last boss!  I’m so excited, I hear that fight is quite fun.

Oh!  And happy July 4th to everyone in the U.S.A.!  Hope your holiday is great!
