As you all know, patch 3.2.0 dropped yesterday. Hydraxis had some extended maintenance, but it was up just in time to get our raids together. The plan was to take 2 10-man groups into the new Argent Colliseum.
Although my group didn’t get started until about an hour and a half into raid time, when we finally did go in, we were raring to go!
I’d briefly glanced over MMO Champion’s list of abilities for this fight, but I am horrible at putting a list of abilities into a coherent strategy. All I knew is “there are some knockbacks or poisons or something.”
None of us really knew what to expect, we didn’t know if we would have to fight all the “Beasts” at once, or if it was timed, or if we’d get a break between them.
And we were fine with that. More than fine, in fact!
Last night was one of those rare opportunities where something is so new, that there is no well-known strategy to use. Instead of reading the strat and evaluating ourselves on how well we can execute it, we had to be attentive to what happened in each attempt and develop and evolve our own strategy.
All ten of us participated in this process, adding suggestions and observations and asking plenty of questions.
It was one of those times where I remembered why I love playing this game, and how it really does help develop real world problem solving and teamwork skills. We had to learn and adapt how we played, and each attempt was nearly better than the last.
I hope everyone who is able to get a group together can give this a try! Don’t just wait for someone else to develop a strategy, use your own!
