Sloppy. That’s the word for last night’s raid.
I missed the first night of heroic Naxx earlier this week when I wasn’t feeling well. They apparently got quite a few bosses down. So last night we started with Grobbulus. I normally stay on the adds and let one of our pally tanks do the MT but those two guys weren’t in the raid so I got MT duty. I think I did my part ok but we had several times where we got more than one add because the melee dps got ahead of the boss. And we had some injection clouds dropped in the middle of the room. Luckily our DPS was in high gear and he went down fast.
Gluth was almost a very easy one shot. He was being burned down so fast we were laughing. Then a DK accidentally hit army of the dead. That pulled Gluth off of me and out into the room. Every time I got him back, one of the zombies would taunt him back and he’d eat another add. He went from 10% to 60% and we wiped. The DK appologized profusely. We killed Gluth easily on the second attempt.
Our only kill of Thaddius on heroic was last week. We seemed to have forgotten everything we learned. I couldn’t make the jump. The priests would put levitate on everyone BUT me. Once on the platform people wouldn’t move fast enough when their charge changed. We wiped 4 times. Just when we thought we were going to have a much better attempt the server choked and half the raid disconnected, including me and the other tank. We gave up on Thaddius for the night.
We decided to hit the Plague wing since that was the only other wing still uncleared. All the trash pulls were near disasters. Some of that was my fault as I was tired and making mistakes. Some of it was people AFK. Some of it was DPS on the wrong targets. We one-shotted Noth but we turned an easy fight into a struggle. The two OT’s had trouble holding the adds. The DPS wouldn’t pause hitting the boss on the aggro dumps. We ended up with 6 people dead when the boss dropped. Sloppy.
Then it was dance time. Again, we had only defeated the boss once previously on heroic, not counting all the times we used the exploit safe spot before the patch. I MT’ed the first few attempts. I did fine staying out of the acid splashes but sometimes I got too close to the platform. On the last two attempts the Druid tank gave it a shot and he didn’t do any better. But the main problem was most of our healers couldn’t dance and then they couldn’t dispell the disease. Our best attempt was 25% when we finally gave up.
Sloppy. I’m not sure we are going to get the full clear of heroic Naxx this week. We have 5 bosses left and only one scheduled night. Maybe we’ll squeeze in an extra night like we did last week.
