Ta'yak Learns the Force is Windier

article image In a surprise for the night, after a practice run on the Blade Lord which resulted in the boss getting to 10%. We realised that the warlocks teleport gateway could come in very useful (and in fact did) as well as the druids stampeding roar.

On the second attempt, the boss was moved nicely, everyone did their bit on the unseen strikes and finally after a windy journey to one end of the room and a teleport gateway to the other we saw the boss fall below that 10% mark and knew that he was going down.

Well done everyone.

It is with regret, however, that I have been informed that our second tank who has been coming with us to see some of the normal raids is taking a break from wow. We wish him all the best and thank him for his assistance.
Zor'lok Gets a Bit of Shining Force and Verve

article image After a few shaky attempts on the boss where folks were dying to the sonic rings of doom, including yours truly. We managed to get through the first 3 phases with nobody dead. Unfortunately yours truly died again!!! Not my night.

This was extremely bizarre though as we ended up with him down to 3% with a decent amount of time left before the enrage. The slight bizarre element of this and the snag that could have posed us a problem was that there was only the tank and a healer left.

Still, try they would and succeed they did. Zor'lok died and finally the force are progressing their way through the Heart of Fear.
Last Will and Testament of the Emperor

article image As the last time we were in Mogushan Vaults not many people rolled on the gear we decided to extend last weeks raid so that we just had the last boss to kill.

Interestingly enough, we had a practice attempt and after that we had a textbook kill. A guild achievement was earned and another feather in the cap for the Shining Force crew.

We read the last will and testament for the emperor and earned ourselves a 6/6 progress in the normal instance.

And now we move to Heart of Fear.
Elegon suffered an E.L.E.gon

article image We've been trying to master those damn pillars for a number of weeks now and finally we were in a position where we could make a few attempts with two healers only.

After a couple of wipes it was clear that tonight could be the night and then due to an unfortunate timing error, yours truly descended down the pit of despair. A quick release and run in and a fresh buff and setup and things started quite smoothly, the right number of adds, the draw powers were blocked up to 4 and then the boss dps'd down.

Then in the last phase it was a case of whatever you can do to keep alive to help the healers, do it. So healing rain, tranquility's etc everything from non-healers was thrown in to the mix and before we knew it, the boss was at 5%. A little push further and down he went, suffering his own Extinction Level Event.

Shining Force 5/6 in MSV Normal, Well done everyone.
Spirit Kings Taught a Lesson in Heraldry

article image After getting so close on Wednesday night after our first kill of Gara'jal we hoped that this would be the week where we progressed that bit further by having a second guild run for the week.

It was looking promising until a couple of last minute drop outs but things were not as bad as all that as one of our unwell members managed to drag himself out of bed to come along to the raid and brought his other half with him to make the numbers up.

We were certainly close on Wednesday as with the same tactics and a couple of practises on execution the Spirit Kings fell one by one to the swords and spells of the force.

Well done all
