Felmyst: 25% and Playoff Hockey
The raid night started off on the wrong foot. It was a late start because some of our raiders were delayed and couldn’t make it on time and one of our Shadow Priest was going to be an hour or more late. Looks like it was going to be a looong night.
Oh yea… the Philadelphia Flyers‘ playoff game was on, and they were down by one goal, so I can’t say I was paying attention 100% either… ^_^;
A Priest not showing up was bad news because this fight is dependant on our Priests being able to Mass Dispell the raid when Felmyst does a raid-wide debuff which puts a dot on you which ticks for 3000 Damage, and drains 1000 Mana. Ouch!
We were able to manage fine with three Priests by moving the Raid positions around a bit and continued on. We were making good progress, everyone is learning the fight, then our streak of bad luck continues. We were plagued with random disconnects and lag spikes. Then after about our fifth wipe, Felmyst did not respawn! >_< Why does Blizzard hate us so?
Flyers tied it up 3-3 on a goal by Briere and sends the game into overtime! w00t! ^_^
After standing around waiting for the putrid puking dragon to respawn, we decided to have everyone zone out of the instance and stay out for thirty minutes hoping that this may reset Felmyst for us.
Double overtime for the Flyers! Maybe we’ll get to see a shootout! O_O
Fast forward thirty to fourty-five minutes later… Yes! There she is flying around waiting to be killed. Ok ready check! Everyone is here right? Of course not… Fast forward ten more minutes… Alright! Everyone is here now, lets put in some more serious attempts.
Knuble scores the winning goal for the Flyers! Philadelphia Flyers leading the series over the Washington Capitals 3-1. ^_^
Oh yea, where was I… From then on, we had a great night of progression. We learned the fight. We know when to dispell, when to run, when to heal. We learned how to run away from her puking beam of death, we learned how to gather up all the skeletons, we learned how to avoid her clouds of death. We survived until her enraged timer.
Got her down to 25% by the time she hit the enrage timer on our best attempt of the night. When she hit her enrage timer, she one-shotted our Main Tank for 45k Damage, and turned to me and totally destroyed me.
Was that really necessary?
We did good. She’ll be dead by the next two raids.
