Halona is an Alliance PVE raiding guild on the Silvermoon-EU realm. Practicing the ‘ZAT’ approach to raiding, they regularly recount their newest ‘First Boss Kills’ or ‘FBKs’ through posts like these. Read on to find out which encounter has just been defeated…

FBK - Blackwing Descent - Omnitron Defense System - 10n

Like Incan temples, Blackwing Descent combines stone steps and stone statues to fatigue and intimidate its visitors. Luckily, our fitness trainer Alith (hidden title: “Stairmaster”) had us working out all winter to ensure our readiness for just such evenings as tonight. We’d also attended a few “assertiveness” classes given by our fellow member Hetty (nickname: “Don Yogi” – due to his love of mixing picnics and violence) and were thus fully prepared to meet the challenge of fighting short stone statues after climbing tall stone stair-cases.

This however was just the beginning. Reaching the top, our team engaged a sole statue and fought with it. A short while later, a second statue joined in and they discovered that they needed to switch their DPS to the new target, less they do more harm to themselves than help. Throughout the fight other statues came into play although there were never more than two statues active at any one time. Each statue had a unique set of abilities that needed to be observed, learned and overcome.

Eventually, it simply became a question of “can we perform this dance without making an error for long enough to kill the ‘stonies’?” It took a chunk of the evening but we finally did it with some comfort thanks to the sterling work of the raid leader and the assistants.

The combination of a relaxed but focused attitude and a spirit of friendly cooperation ensured that the team pretty much eased themselves into the victory seat and got to watch more loot spill to the floor ready for our collection.

As the team wandered back towards the entrance (nee: the ‘exit’), they noticed the door opposite the entrance was now standing open Immediately behind it was an elevator waiting to take players down to a terrace far below. It was nearly dark by that point however and the Worgen members were starting to look a little bit fidgety so we agreed to come back another day to probe further into the ‘Descent’.
