First Kill of Twilight Ascendant Council (10n)!

First Kill of Twilight Ascendant Council (10n)!

On the auspicious evening of the Thursday night raid, our team was missing two of its regular tanks, posing a problem since we only had one proper tank available. An offer was made – our pinch-hitting healer alt had a tank off-spec but the gear was a bit lacking… let’s call it around 165K HP with raid buffs. The suggestion was, if you can cope with the healing, then we might just have a raid.

Starting from the entrance, our regular proper tank took the brunt of the pulls to begin with so the learning curve for the noob-tank was as easy as possible and the scare-factor for the healers was minimised. It seemed to work. First Halfus went down and then Valiona and Theralion followed. Now we faced the unknown… the Twilight Ascendant Council.

Having not seen the fight before, it took us a few attempts to understand what we were supposed to be doing and a few more to actually pull off the techniques. Ultimately, the team overcame and the council died.

It was not the sternest test of ability to be completely fair but with the tank deficit that the healers were carrying, the challenge remained interesting and it was therefore still quite a satisfying victory when success was achieved. This FBK also brings us nicely to the end-point of each raid dungeon available prior to the imminent 4.2 content patch, with just the final boss of each instance to kill for completion. (“Just”!)

Once again though, compliments to the team and thanks for each member present on the night for working together to adapt to the challenge of the dungeon and to the handicap the team carried into the fight. To succeed in imperfect conditions is a demonstration of ability. Nicely done!
