After a very fast first raid week where fights were generally won once working tactics were established we finally reached the fights where we know exactly what had to be done, but the execution had to be carried out perfectly. Needless to say, after an extraordinary amount of focus from Maligned’s raiders everything came together and we finally slapped the gnome down. The fight is broken down into four phases that all need to be dealt with differently with all raiders having to react to various boss abilities. This fight does seem to have a little bit of everything going on: mines on the ground, an explosion around the boss, an eye beam of sorted that must be avoided, hunter kiting, warlock tanking, missile strikes (I am guilty of failing to dodge more than once!). Generally a bucket load of raid and tank damage. The final phase is utter chaos with the majority of the abilities from the previous phases all being used against us and to top it all off, the components that made up the former phases all need to be killed within ten seconds of each other. I shudder to think what will happen once we press the inviting red button at the start of the fight – we will do it eventually I am sure, accidentally or otherwise.
