Heroic: Alysrazor! (0)

August 25th, 2011 by , under World of Warcraft.


Heroic Alysrazor was a lesson in patience for us. Although there is relatively little change in the mechanics of the fight from normal mode, it really requires everyone to perform at 100% for the entire duration of the fight – this can be surprisingly difficult to achieve at times.  But we persevered, and after a close 6% wipe on our first day and were able to seal the deal and send this bird back to the grave in stunning fashion this night.

Well there isn’t much to say about this fight, after downing Heroic Beth’tilac last night we walked into the Firelands today expecting to begin progression attempts on Heroic Ryo’lith… well it turns out we began and finished our progression in one pull, leaving us feeling happy yet kind of cheated – much like you feel after paying for an expensive hooker in Vegas.

Ta-da!  After a few grueling weeks of working on our execution and pushing ourselves to the limit we finally downed the Black Widow. Last week we had a heartbreaking half a percent wipe at the end of our last raid night, but that only motivated us. When we again joined the battle this week, we were able to start the night off right, with a close sub-ten percent attempt.  After that it was only a matter of a cleaning up our minor mistakes and taking the venomous bitch down.
