Kills and Distractions
We’ve made some pretty decent progress in Firelands over the last couple of weeks, taking down Rhyolith, Alysrazor, and Baleroc. Our sights are set on Fandral and Ragnaros as we look to future kills and get distracted by the little things in between.
Rhyolith has become synonymous with Nascar and the Fast and the Furious in my guild (specifically Tokyo Drift). There’s a lot of right turns involved and sometimes, they just kind of let him drift in a direction to clip a volcano. Every kill since our first has been accompanied by “Driftin’!” in Vent. It’s… our thing now, I suppose.
How to Train Your DPS
Sadly, the DPS are about as easy to train as that giant, T-Rex looking dragon from How to Train Your Dragon. And we don’t get the benefit of dragon nip to make it easier. The biggest hang-up we had on Baleroc was training the DPS to monitor their own debuffs and stacks in order to tank the crystals. As we managed that, the healers had an easier time doing their own jobs and making with the big, pretty numbers for the tanks.
The Bird with the Worms
Last night was our first Alysrazor kill, after an apparent 13k wipe ending to Wednesday’s raid night (which I missed because I was at Kennywood, getting my ride on). Our kill was the flawless execution that we had been striving for the entire night, and it was great to see it all come together. Hopefully, we’ll be able to keep it together on subsequent raid nights.
Lately, I’ve been doing some world exploring and some alt leveling. These screenshots are a record of my recent distractions.
