This one is for you, Ron. 150 pulls for US 26 (World 125) with Hall of Fame. I honestly wasn’t sure if we would make it. We killed it in our 3rd good P3 pull. We optimized this fight more than any other fight in the history of this team. All our timings were on point, the burns were ahead at every phase, and our positioning was improving every night. We entered the gate room at an insane 35.5% on N’Zoth, meaning if we played clean we would assuredly get it, and on our last pull of the night we did just that.
Despite all the pressure we never added any extra days or time, and killed it inside our 9 hour per week schedule. I am so impressed with this team. Truly exemplifying that high-end raiding doesn’t have to mean high hours. What an amazing end to this expansion.
There are so many shoutouts I want to give. So many people cheered us on and gave us support.
@Kel for swapping to Sin on our literal last night to increase boss damage, after having done the entire...
We downed this in just 31 pulls for US 24. It was indeed shortly after Il'gynoth. We've hit an incredible stride and we are already feeling good on our first night of N'zoth progression. Really excited to see what kind of a finish we can have for the end of BfA! Insanely proud of the team to date. Hopefully you'll see another post in the beginning of March!
26 pulls for US 39. That includes the face pulls. Bit of a ridiculous boss. Once everyone finds their spot the boss kind of just dies. Bit underwhelming that you can do the fight like this but it is what it is. We're already almost to Phase 3 on Carapace. We're thirsty for the end of this raid. Carapace soon hopefully! See you then.
We've been going so hard we forgot to post any news for these bosses! Unfortunately the instance is a bit under-tuned, which is likely a result of Blizzard missing the mark on balance with Corruption. Thus we find ourselves in a sprint towards the finish line. We've been enjoying the journey though, while many others seem only fixated on the end. I'm not sure we expected to be this far in only 4 weeks, but it is what it is! We've been humming along (except for that one night on Xanesh). I suspect we'll be seeing an Il'gynoth post coming shortly, but in the meantime here are a bunch of kill shots (we forgot to take a couple).
Super proud of the team and how smooth progression has been. You all make raiding in WoW a breeze.
Phew! Azshara was truly a test of everything we had dealt with this tier. We killed her after 430 pulls to finish at US 266, but we got her just in time for the holidays! We had our fair share of internet issues, emergencies, and trying situations, but we persevered and stayed focused. Also, I am proud of everyone on the team for jumping in and out throughout the progression period. It is safe to say that everyone played a major part in honing our strategy and progressing the boss.
In typical end of tier fashion, some shoutouts!
@Dub for his consistent and strong strategy prep and in-raid calls. @Ralphh for stepping up and nailing down heal CDs throughout the tier. @Morose for looking for every opportunity to maximize his utility on Azshara and rally the team. @Abyssalbrew for continuing to drive our tank synergy. @Dobi, @Treefee, @Plka...
We are entering the home stretch! Za'qul definitely was a fun test, but it was frustrating at the same time. We had a super clean pull at the end of the night, and we killed it with plenty of time left. It took us a hair under 150 pulls, but we had a lot of people step up again on this boss. We are all extremely excited to start the deep progression that is Azshara.
We are still actively looking for Ranged DPS! Please keep an eye on our recruiting needs and come join an efficient team on a 2 night schedule!
