Team 8 has been chugging along steadily, enjoying a progression kill every session since the start of the tier. While Tarragrue is pretty forgettable, the powers you can use are kind of fun. Eye is a solid second boss with simple mechanical/number checks. The Nine was a bit underwhelming (heroic with one more dispel?) but it's a pretty cool theme for an encounter. I do think it could have been further into the instance allowing it to be a bit more formidable. If you're looking for a motivated and chill group to raid with we're recruiting!
We downed this in 44 pulls. Honestly it took us a bit longer than I think it should have, but you gotta have a boss that really wakes you up for progression and this was it. We've almost got Nerzhul down and I expect us to be on Painsmith this coming Monday, the first true hard boss this tier. Fortunately we're historically very good with execution/control fights so really looking forward to it!
Well, we forgot to take a screenshot of the Tarragrue cause that boss is a meme. We did remember the other two though. 1, 3, and 2 pulls respectively for Tarragrue, Eye, and The Nine. Honestly not much to say about these bosses as they were pretty easy. Additionally we spent about 22 pulls getting Sylvanas, with a sad 50.2% wipe on Monday. So narrowly missing AOTC on week 1, but we didn't add any time to get there, as usual. We're already cranking on Soulrender... so hopefully we'll see another news in a few days for that. In the meantime enjoy the videos!
Team 8 has now rounded out a great first tier in the Shadowlands. We managed to improve yet again and plan on continuing that trend! Besides the small blemish the SLG fight itself puts on the instance, we rather enjoyed Castle Nathria progression.
We broke into and finished the tier in the top 200 US bracket. We really gained some steam on Council of Blood and Sludgefist progression, keeping those bosses under 50 and 100 wipes respectively. I'm really proud of our team for continuing on a path to improvement as this is a catalyst for making progression rewarding.
Time for the shoutouts: @Purrtykitty and @Ralphh for spear-heading planning our cooldowns. Preparation is everything when it comes to not only healing cd's, but how we handle raid wide utility. Purrty put some serious time into combing through SLG and Denathrius logs.
@Abyssal for being a tireless assistant to the group. He does a little of everything...
