FBK - Dragon Soul - Hagara the Stormbinder - 10hc

Our most recent heroic Dragon Soul conquest occurred this Monday evening following almost 3 weeks of sporadic attempts. Strangely it was not a fight we found strategically difficult but it was one we found mechanically painful. Our only area of real pain was the buggy lightning chaining mechanic which seems to be one of the many unfixed Blizzard gremlins. If you stand next to a pillar and cannot get the lightning to chain to you at all, there’s something wrong. When it happens 3 out of 5 times, there’s something very wrong.

Finally though, we got our successful kill and so now we move on to the next heroic encounters; Zonozz, Warmaster Blackhorn, Spine and Madness. Oh joy!

Sometimes it’s the most simple of things you need to learn to do without error and these are the things that somehow become the hardest things to do correctly. Ultraxion is all about a button. One small tiny little button. When you get the “Fading Light” debuff, watch its duration countdown and at three seconds, press that baby button. It takes a bit of attention to be sharp for sometimes the countdown begins at three seconds. Don’t get caught napping or the raid will wipe.

Tonight, after numerous attempts, we finally managed to last the distance and achieve the heroic mode kill on Ultraxion. It’s all about the button pressing baby!

Dragon Soul heroic modes continue with this evening’s toppling of Yor’sahj the Unsleeping. Plenty of fun was had by all (naturally) and once the technique was understood and practiced, the kill was screened only by the “right amount” of practice attempts. Congratulations to all and onward we go. Really, we do.

To open our heroic Dragon Soul account, the newly strengthened team took on the heroic mode of the Morchok encounter and triumphed. Many deaths occurred across the evening but on balance, this was merely a good solid fight to adapt to and nothing too scary in the global heroic stakes. Nevertheless, it was demonstrative of a team showing good signs of adaptability and cooperation and thus prompts a hearty congratulation to all those present!

FBK - Dragon Soul - Madness of Deathwing - 10n

In truth, we’ve been killing both Spine of Deathwing and Madness of Deathwing since early February but for what was becoming almost a bad joke, every single occasion up until now found us a player short from our guild roster to make it a pure all-guild kill and as you know, guild rules state that it’s only a guild FBK when it’s a guild-only group. So you can blame the vaguaries of life for keeping our various members busy until now – what can we say though, it’s “Lambing Season”, there’s the Summer Olympic Games to prepare for, new babies have been born and important relationships were forged. Kinda puts the demands of a game on the back-burner doesn’t it and that’s as it should be.

Still, we got here finally and enjoyed a relatively quick run this evening showing why guilds still remain the best way to achieve success in games like this – the easy cooperation and organisation doesn’t exist in the world-of-PUGs at even a fraction of the same level. Tonight’s kill was both fun and fast and our future kills are likely to be likewise, at least until we test ourselves further on the heroic modes.

For now though, consider Cataclysm complete from the content perspective. It’s been brief and our opinions on it are for another update, so let’s just enjoy the moment and congratulate ourselves on a job well done!
