    I guess C'Thun 2.0 is more of an octopus than a slug, either way he has left a mess as all creatures with teeth for eyes do. I believe the kill was a horde first on Arathor and certainly well deserved. Here is the obligatory kill shot.

    So there we have it, what could be our last new boss kill for a few weeks until we endeavour to complete the four keeper hard modes and unlock Algalon. We spent quite some time carefully working through the various stages of this fight and I shall cover these after posting the full fight from Youtube.

    The first phase involves having the entire raid carefully rotating with a cloud and killing Guardians of Yogg-Saron on top of Sarah, unless we do it the other way. The kill actually shows our most hectic first phase that we experienced throughout our build up to the kill. At one point it looks so unmanageable that a wipe was called (hence my sharp exit to the door). But in true Maligned style we let slip the cows of war and let Yogg sort them out.

    Phase two involves killing various tentacles, preventing insanity and having the melee run off to fight other tentacles disguised as historical figures as fast as possible thus stunning the brain of Yogg-Saron. The guides recommend that this should take four cycles, although we have been consistently doing it in three.

    Phase three involves nuking a 30% Yogg-Saron while killing immortal guardians and turning away from the boss to prevent insanity. We reached phase three several times in a better state than this, but I guess practice makes perfect and everyone knew what their jobs were.

    The fight is now complete in its easiest mode and I have no doubts it will get bloody hard without any or all of the surrounding guardians helping us.

    This week we were obviously pushing to get Yogg-Saron down so skipped the optional bosses where convenient so on our way to the exit we also paid a visit to the Assembly of Iron and having worked out some hunter issues (including the amazing revelation that Black Arrow and traps share a cool down) we were able to take down Molgeim last with very little difficulty, an entertaining fight. This has now started the guild on the Algalon quest line but I expect that to take some time.

    Closer to the exit, we also took down Ignis to achieve the Shattered achievement as well as Razorscale where I completed my own personal achievement of not taking aggro and dying. Woo.

    What program are you using? FRAPS? Game Cam?
  13. Electronicus

    Electronicus Administrator Staff Member

    Yeah, Fraps.
    Raw data is fine I think the programs I use and the custom resolution make it more complicated.
    Will prob work on that a bit more.

    Got the new Vegas pro but have yet to work with it.

    Yup you could be onto something with the custom res. A friend of mine used to do a lot of very good quality wow movies using Fraps, the only thing I can really remember him saying about it is that he used to change his screen res from whatever it usually was down to 1024 (I think) when he Frapsed. He also used Vegas to process the vid if that helps at all :)

    Yeah, I am not gonna change my res but will do my best to work around it.
