We had our first night of attempts on Malygos last night and it went pretty well. I decided to play my priest and do some healing and let the other tanks have at it. The fight isn’t very easy on my vertigo any way with all the stars spinning around in the back ground and the vortex and all so I really didn’t mind letting the other tanks run.
Enough had been in the ten mans to where the first phase was fairly easy. It took 3 or 4 attempts before we got it down. I was healing the other healers and throwing Guardian Spirit on the MT after the first vortex as well as throwing him some heals as I could. I made a few quick macros and my job went pretty well.
Phase 2 was where everything fell apart. It was like we didn’t expect to get past phase 1, lol, so we had to wipe a few times on phase 2 before we even had a decent plan. Even after we got it planned out I kept getting nuked by the Scions on the discs. Part of it was running, keeping myself healed, healing one of the tanks, staying in the bubble and trying to throw a few heals on other random heals on other people was a lot to do. I was wishing I was running my tank at that point. But the Scions just seemed to be tracking me down and nuking me. The raid leader said they had a random aggro table but if so I was just unlucky. One of their arcane blasts hit me for 18K.
Needless to say, I didn’t care much for phase 2 and I only lived through it once. We really only had 3 good runs that had several people get into phase 3. The one I made it through we had about 15 people. I didn’t have a clue where the rest of the people went once we got on drakes and I found myself face to face with Maly and dead in a few seconds.
Our best attempt we got Maly to about 35% before we were all dead. Not really close since even if we had lived we wouldn’t have beat the enrage timer. But it was a fun night of attempts. I’m not sure if we will get him with just one more night of attempts or not. I guess it depends on how many guildies go run 10 mans to learn the fight. In a way it is kind of refreshing to have a fight that we don’t concur in one night. It brought back memories of all the painful butt whuppings Leo gave us in SSC. We can laugh at those nights now.
