The Spine of Deathwing is the first of two confrontations with Deathwing in the Dragon Soul raid. The battle begins on The Skyfire as players leap onto the Destroyer's back, attempting to weaken his armor enough for their allies to attack, and ends when he is defeated and crashes into the Maelstrom. Spine was like a cute little puppy dog when he finally rolled over and died last night. We have our hundred plus attempts on this demanding and at most times frustrating fight but once again it shows practise makes perfect! We didn't have any of the desired tank classes so handling the bloods was challenging, I especially feel sorry for Keade spending four hours per night running in circles on the back of the spine while we progressed. But Druid / Death Knight tank setup can work! We had some very solid attempts from the start and it paid of at the end of the night to everyones big relief, and of course with some nice rewards to our raiders, well done all, Madness next!
