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 - Dragon Soul - Warmaster Blackhorn - 10n

FBK - Dragon Soul - Warmaster Blackhorn - 10n

Warmaster Blackhorn, the sixth encounter of Dragon Soul, returns your raid team to an encounter that takes place upon a flying warship. The fight spans two phases. In the first, your ship will be under attack from twilight dragons, unwelcome Vrykul boarders and the odd goblin sapper. All will be attempting to cause damage that will render your ship broken. You must prevent this. It’s a basic dance to kill each attacker whilst sacrificially taking damage on behalf of the ship so that the vessel will survive into round two. At this point, the Warmaster appears and he’s a simple tank-and-spank affair with a periodic cone-AoE attack on the raid (avoidable) and a proportionally escalating damage output as players die.

The challenge lies all in the first phase where the amount of damage being taken will stretch your healers immensely and until the team can get a handle on the damage mitigation, you’ll wipe and wipe and wipe some more. Once you get it, the fight is breezy-easy.

Halona’s team took a few evenings to understand the mechanics and get the practice down but that all ‘came good’ this week with a reset-night smash-and-grab that brought a smile of relief to those healers faces. Now it’s just the Spine and the Madness of Deathwing standing between us and a successful clear of the instance. Onward team, onward!
