    Eggs it always seems to come down to Eggs when dealing with the Black Dragons, this is mostly due to the fact that after Neltharion’s or should that be Deathwing’s insanity the others hunted down and destroyed them. Now though in the Obsidian Sanctum a new breed of ‘Twilight’ Dragons is being razed by the ebony giants under the watchful gaze of Sartharion and an army of dragonkin.

    Strangly enough the entrance to this Sanctum is right at the base of the Wyrmrest temple and not far about it Alexstrasza – the Life Binder and Deathwings most bitter enemy stands, why she does not take action is anyone’s guess, but hey that’s dragons for you. So once again it falls to the well equipped, highly motivated and experience mercenaries of both the Horde and Alliance to deal with this potential threat, which is probably for the best anyway.

    The question that must now be asked however is how many ways are there to kill a dragon.

    This part of the Obsidian Sanctum contains 4 mobs of interest. These are Sartharion (the raid boss himself) and 3 drakes, Vesperon, Shadron and Tenebron. Each has their own form of adds depending on how you engage. The drake mobs are known as 'Disciple of ...' respectively.

    Not much lore I am afraid, if you need a fix, go read up on the The Lich King or something.

    Having killed Sartharion with no drakes remaining and seeing how completely easy it was to avoid Flame Tsunamis, we decided to skip starting the fight with a single drake up and moved right to the pair and this makes the fight complicated in several ways.

    We did it in such a fashion that we only really worried about one dragon at a time, but the alertness of the raid must increase with the increased debuffs, void zones and having to portal to the twilight zone (no really) in order to kill eggs or disciples. As you can see from the skeletons in the screenshot it was no easy task but ultimately we found we were able to finish the second drake off with enough people to kill Sartharion.

    Why? We needed the challenge, that and the more drakes that remain the more loot you get as well as being of a higher quality. A third drake would provide a tasty mount but the fight difficulty would once again be increased, perhaps soon. Ok we admit it, we are achievement junkies and there was nothing funnier than seeing somewhere between 50 to 75 achievements spamming the poor folks who didn't make it in.

    Next up - who knows? I guess we start working on achievements and potentially that third drake until Blizzard share with us what they have been working on! We are quickly running out of content to satisfy our four night raiding schedule and we are only going to get it done faster.
