Last weekend NZ Gamers raided Gruul’s Lair for effectively the first time. We managed to scrap together 23 decently geared characters, pug’d a 24th and ran with that. With a crisp and detailed set of instructions we let fly!
… and promptly ran away! It was our Mage-Tank’s first try at Krosh, and I dont envy him that responsbility. Several pulls later we down Krosh and Olim, then the Main Tank falls and we flee! A frustrating hour goes by, and people are starting to get antsy. Still, we persevere and in time it all clicks and we down the High King and his minions.
With 30 mins until the scheduled end of the raid, we decide to poke our head into Gruul’s Lair and see what he’s been eating. Again, our GL/RL gives some clear instructions and we hover our fingers over “1” and wait for the signal…
… which is apparently an undead priest jumping about. Rushed, we give it a shot anyways. Wipe. Second attempt goes much better, and we last until Growth 14, when we’re wiped with Gruul at 18%. Still, a success – its not a hard fight, you just have to be on your toes. Its likely much harder for the tanks and healers, but as I’m DPS I dont have to think, just move occasionally.
In other news, Tanarel gets a loan from the Bank and buys her Epic Flying Mount – WHOOSH! Flying around Netherstorm has never been so much fun. Now to pay back the loan before they take her house…
