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...
While opinions vary on the fight, Mythic Stone Legion Generals is certainly a marathon of an encounter and will likely be remembered. Mythic SLG took Team 8 165 attempts for WR 497 on our 2 night, 8 hour raid schedule. We are excited to move on to Sire Denathrius and really enjoyed our first night of progression on him. We will be shifting gears back to recruiting during farm and we'd love to hear from talented players that are looking for a group that demonstrates camaraderie and efficiency. Hit us up!
Team 8 has been hustling along, knocking out Council of Blood and Mythic Sludgefist in 48 and 99 pulls respectively. Our communication is on the up and we really felt it on these bosses. Big thanks to everyone for showing up prepared. @Purrtykitty handled some extra call-outs on Council and @Abyssal played 21st man on Sludgefist; both of them were integral to our quick success. We are excited to begin work on Stone Legion Generals. Maybe it's not 'the worst boss of all time' after the hotfixes?
Team 8 has had an awesome week, netting 2 progression kills amongst all of our farm on the first night of raid. We demolished Lady Inerva in 12 pulls, totaling less than 43 minutes in progression! For our Thursday session we were able to spend the entire night on Council of Blood and made it to the 2nd gargoyle in the final phase. Big props to the team for being very prepared this week.
