I know it’s been awhile. It’s not you, it’s me.
For the last number of weeks my interest in WoW went on a serious decline largely due to my raid team smashing their faces into Heroic Spine of Deathwing. There are so many bloods, and the timing is all funky now that we are looking at the progressive nerfs that are coming out. (Something most of the strategies out there don’t tell you)
We spent probably a good 12 hours doing nothing but wiping on Heroic Spine. We were relieved when it finally went down on Thursday of last week, but it just made the desire to really punch Deathwing in the face even more palpable.
Rewind to Monday, we spent the evening trying to figure out how to time the platforms correctly, so we didn’t push tentacles too early, and making sure people don’t do dumb things. No Madness kill on Monday.
Our first attempt on Tuesday involved some getting some stupid out of our systems. Myself included. I got caught too close to a parasite spawn, and died. Despite all that, we got a really solid look at Phase 2, and our motivation returned.
That’s when it happened. We fixed the stupid, got the jitters out of our systems, and got our Heroic Madness of Deathwing kill. It wasn’t pretty at the end. In fact, it was my husband, who Ankh’d and popped an earth elemental at the very end, and some really clinch healing that got us the kill. (Here’s the logs from the kill)
I know CQ wasn’t the only guild stuck on those two encounters, and I’m going to change it up a bit. If you’re struggling with any encounters (heroic included) in Dragon Soul from a Hunter perspective, leave your questions in the comments, and I’ll get you the answers you are looking for.
