Finished with Normal 25 Man ToC.
Ok guys, it is time now to face the harsh reality of just how easy normal mode ToC is compared to Heroic ToC.
You can read some about the changes over at World of Matticus, most fights sound a little rougher but I think most people will worry about Heroic Faction Champs. I dunno if we should worry as we have gotten the fight down pretty well giving 1v1 responsibility to control what we are not focus firing. We 2 shot it last night which was a decent improvement over previous weeks.
We downed Anub’arak last night to complete ToC 25 normal. The fight was fun though not terribly difficult (we 2 shot him after an initial pull screw up).
I passed on a bunch of gear yet again, I am just not willing to spend 10% or more of my DKP on minor upgrades when I don’t even know how Heroic ToC is going to go. If progression in Heroic seems slow maybe I will start spending some DKP again. I am still sitting at the #1 spot in DPS for many fights and rarely drop below 3rd although the DPS around me is starting to push up as they are getting upgrades. I dunno, maybe I will splurge a little if Death’s Verdict drops… depends if I score Wrathstone before then… I am just a sucker for Crit.
After finishing ToC we headed over to Ulduar to start working back to Yogg and on hard modes. We scored the speed kill on Ignis first attempt but then stumbled on XT hard at… yeah you can guess it… 1%… ugh. WTB a raid comp that allows me to not have to burn combo points on XT because I have to go find and kill sparks. Maybe some other ferals can chime in on how they handle the transition? I tried my best to make sure I had DoTs rolling before switching targets but that is hard when you know the healers are having a tough time keeping everyone alive. He enraged at 4% and at 1% everyone was eating dirt. I am sure we will get him the next time we try.
As we gear up in ToC you have to wonder how long Blizzard is going to leave the drakes in Ulduar. I guess they still want people to raid there so maybe that is why they are leaving the incentive.
Anyway, all in all another very fun night of raiding last night… I can’t wait to see the new boss in WG now.
