After about a month of farming C'thun and completely ignoring Viscidus, we decided to invest the time and potions needed to drop him at least once before the patch. We called in the alt Mages, pointed the Nasbin signal at the sky, spent a couple days practicing the fight, and killed him on our 3rd serious attempt with potions.
Step 1: Flask entire raid
Step 2: Stack raid to your advantage
We got some crappy Paladin gloves.
Sort of a fun fight, I suppose. It's sad you have to use so many consumables to kill him. While we were practicing, before we used any potions, we could shatter him 3 times before every healer was completely spent on mana. And even then we had a handful of people dead for various reasons. When you use potions you shouldn't really lose anybody and the fight becomes rather easy. They make that big of a difference.

And that is Kel'thuzad's first 100% clear AQ40. Not sure why nobody else is working on this guy.......
This is how we get rich
This is how we play DotA.
