Happy Fun Guyz have been making some serious headway (relative to how we play) in the WoW content.Â We have two 10-man raids running twice a week in Blackwing Descent and Bastion of Twilight.Â Both raids are currently working towards bringing down the second bosses and both are making headway.Â Tonight we just finished up doing Baradin Hold’s Argaloth, which is like Vault of Archavon, and then went on to down BWD’s first boss Magmaw quickly to give us a couple hours of attempts on Omnotron.Â The Omnotron encounter is ridiculous!Â There’s so much going on and it can be a bit random at times.Â Once you get a cool head and recognize that it’s just every mechanic you’ve done in raiding thrown into one boss fight you’re okay.Â Switching targets like musical chairs, not standing in some stuff and standing in others, add control, kiting… it’s all there.
After a few wipes we got into a rhythm and starting making huge headway.Â At that point we had one of our guildies have to leave and we brought in an undergeared member (shout out to Dragnous) because it was worth wiping more to learn the fight.Â Even with the undergeared player (And his first time with our group!) we got Omnotron down to seconds of being dead three times.Â At that point it was just a matter of luck whether we could kill him and it would have been a definite kill with just a few more items.
It was a lot of fun watching the fight click for people.Â Our interrupts were good, our communication was great, our healers (poor healers, such a tough ae damage fight) did great, and overall we ended the night on a very high note.Â There’s a marked difference between wiping and ending on a “blah” note and wiping yet walking away excited because you know you’ll rock in two nights later.
We’re coming for you Omnotron.
