So the group was
Tanks: Hwired, Belinia (substituted for Roshii after)
Healers: Voe, Navimie, Gutsy
DPS: Lushnek, Azadelta, Fallnapart, Augment, Souglyy
I will admit, I was a bit nervous. I am so used to my group, which is quiet and laid back, that I wondered, what it would be like coming to the more intense group. The other group usually has a bit more drama in raid than mine, and I wondered if it would be different. Though in reality, the groups are split half half. I don't want people yelling at me for little mistakes. Usually in our group we laugh it off like when I tranq'd in purple on Yor'sahj or when Sev lost his mouse cursor and couldn't click the button for Ultraxion.
The first boss went smoothly, Voe was on Porkchop's side and me and Gutsy were on Morchok's side. At least the drops were good! We got Bone Link Fetish (Falln) and Mycosynth wristguards for me!
Then on to Yor'sahj where Voe said he wanted to DPS and I said no, Gutsy normally DPS's this fight, and it was just me and Voe. It was a little different to how we did it. They don't do group assignments like I do, it's a FFA heal. Which I didn't like because of the risk of me hotting someone who needs a heal. And then when they agreed to split the groups they gave me ALL the ranged. I said that you can't do that because in green phase, melee take NO damage but ranged take all the damage so I'll be doing all the healing, I wanted them split between us but Voe said it would be fine stop stressing! So, the first ooze phase had a blue and the second one was red/yellow/black and Voe wanted the bubble popped, even though I didn't think we needed it. Which meant for the NEXT phase where there was a blue again AND a green, there was no mana. So how can I heal all the bombed ranged with no mana? Bleh! I can't! So poor Souglyy, who was at the bottom of my heal window didn't get a heal because I had no mana for a heal. And she died. Voe snickered at me and said "Did you need a hand?" and I said "Well, YEAH I said I would need a hand in green phase!" ":P" he said to me. Well, that was annoying but at least we still killed it. Aza get his heroic Conquerer legs, and Gutsy picked up Scalpel of Unrelenting Agony. So onto Zon'ozz!
It took me a bit to get the hang of what they were saying. Aza runs around killing things - that was different to what Sev does. And rogues stay on the claw. That too was different to what I'd done, but didn't mean it wasn't better. I said Voe's not allowed to do ranged because he doesn't stand in the group. Besides, in our group, Gutsy did ranged. Voe got to stay on melee. I went out with Aza and Falln taking care of eyes after the black phase, and the three of us just had to time our CDs right for each black phase. It actually went rather well I thought. Our first go, all 3 of us blew our CDs on the first black phase. On the second go I dispelled Augment too early and blew people up. I was used to yelling to people to run out and Voe said too many people asking for dispels so I did the 3 second count dispel which I didn't think worked as well. On one attempt I thought we were supposed to wipe after someone died and I missed that so I did my usual kill everyone as fast as you can and dispelled a melee really early, not realising we were continuing. Roshii got a bit "Who dispelled!" cranky, and I said it was me. But maybe he held back from yelling at me coz I was his friend.
The discussion about techniques was a bit heated and Augment whispered me "Is it just me or is there a bit of tension about how to do it?"
I whispered him back and said "I think this is what they're normally like."
But back to Zon'ozz. On our 5th attempt we wiped so close... and I died just before I could tranq. So we reshuffled our CDs again and we got it on our 6th go. And you know what's crappy? We were all standing around his legs and I FRAPS'd it but I was facing the WRONG WAY and you can't see anything. What a crap video, who hired her to do these??
Conquerer Tier again! Gutsy got Conquerer gloves and Hwired picked up Indomitable Pride.
Then onto Hagara! I needed an explanation so that took a while and there was this diagram I had to look at with numbers 1-8 scattered around the lightning rods. Too confusing for me. Luckily, healers just had to stand in the middle so my job would have been easy. Cavendar was talking to me at work, and I told him what we were doing, and he told me that they tried doing that for 2 days and it wasn't working and in the end they ended up having everyone in the middle and 2 groups of 2, one on each side, doing all the rods on one side each. Well I haven't actually seen that phase so I can't say I know exactly what he's talking about, so I will see it tonight.
But now Frostwolves are 4/8! WOOOOO! Grats Frostwolves!
