First Kill of Cho'gall (10n)!

First Kill of Cho'gall (10n)!

After scoring a full-on strike against Al’Akir in the Throne of the Four Winds, our team sped with all due haste to the Bastion of Twilight to stand before Cho’gall with a firm intention of bringing the night’s scalp-count of boss-level mobs to two. Seconds out, round two…

With the mechanics of the fight reminded to us all by our fools-will-not-be-suffered-gladly raid-leader we started making attempts on the many-eyed monster and fairly quickly found our stumbling block was the final phase of the fight, when the corruption stacks and the ‘lasers’ can play havoc if tentacles are not controlled properly.

Give it a few attempts though and we’ll generally find our way around most obstacles. Such was the case tonight. After a succession of wipes where healer mana gave out before the boss’ HP, continued adjustment brought us a victory where our healers had half-full mana bars, thanks to the revised DPS arrangement that placed most of the ranged DPS on the crucial tentacle tackling task. So successful were they in chopping down these irritating summons that the few melee left on perma-boss killing duty arrived at the end of the fight with the boss at their feet having never been hit once by the ‘laser of annoyance.’ That’s some pretty good tentacle management don’t you think?

With Cho’gall’s death came the “Defender of a Shattered World” achivement and corresponding title which some in the guild will be wearing proudly in days to come. It marks the end of our journey of exploration through the first tier of Cataclysm’s raiding content and frees us to begin a new exploration through the new content introduced in the recently released 4.2 patch. Firelands and Ragnaros, here we come!
