    The first week of raids into Ulduar 25 man has now ended and progress has been good. In four nights we have managed to clear eight new bosses on previous nights and then a further two tonight. It certainly beats the monthly progress we were making in Sunwell!

    Firstly we made our way to Thorim and after several attempts - each making a little progress in each of the two required groups - we got him down. Cue obligatory non-kill shot as another boss disappears having vowed to help us later on.

    As you enter the arena, an alliance team are in a neverending battle with a jormungar, so we valiently jump in and kill the worm - only then realising our place we then quickly dispatch the allies and this is where the fun starts. The raid splits into two groups the first running a gauntlet to kill two mini-bosses (whose abilities elude me as I wasn't part of that group) in order to force Thorim to join in the festivities. Meanwhile the other group has to take on endless waves of angry mobs until the boss is ready dodging huge hammers and lightning charged poles. Very hectic indeed. Once thats done the boss is generally tank and spank with what I believe were tank debuffs - but meh, I am a hunter and shoot things.

    Rather than progress into Mimiron trash, which apparently takes some time, we pulled back to Ignis and upon killing him we ensured that we had been able to take down all optional bosses available up to our progress level.

    Having nailed the tactic last night on the ten man version, we knew exactly what we had to do and we did it. The boss is tanked while various golems are dealt with inside a scorched earth by off tanks. Once these golems are molten they are fed to water and obliterated by mages. Meanwhile the DPS are laying into the boss. The boss will ocassionally throw a raid member into a slag pot around his waste and cast flame jets, but it is all good.

    Next week more progress?
