Dragon Soul - 2/8H

So far Dragon Soul is a pretty interesting zone - I like the fight mechanics (mostly) and we're making decent progress with our very limited raid times. The main reason I forgot to get kill shots for these bosses is that we're still cramming our heroic Firelands clear into an 8 hour per week raid schedule on top of doing heroic progression in Dragon Soul (thankfully, FL is history now!)

We decided not to exploit Hagara for an easy kill this week or last (and by 'decided' I mean we weren't aware of the bugs last week and lack the raid comp to do it this week), but I fully expect with our full schedule open to work on DS we'll be 4 or 5/8 very soon. In the meantime, here's a video of our Yor'sahj kill:

Heroic Ragnaros - Firelands Complete

Wow, what a relief. I wouldn't say it's the best fight they've ever put in, but I'd definitely say it's the most unforgiving encounter in a long time. Doing this in a semi-casual way (1-2 nights a week at 2-3 hours a night) it took roughly a month, with the total number of attempts with our final group setup right around 200.

Great job by our whole group in finally taking care of this thing. We had some heartbreaking wipes in the last few nights, several sub-5% and a flawless attempt with mysteriously hidden roots at 9%. Our kill attempt was basically perfect, which makes it all the more satisfying. Very much looking forward to 4.3 now and very glad to have a solid group to move forward with. Finally we have the semi-casual 10m group that is pro without having to raid 15-20 hours a week.

P.S. - We killed some other shit boss a while back and our warrior tank thinks he's good...

Heroic Baleroc - 6/7H

All things considered, not a horribly difficult fight, though I'd be happy if they left the rng elements of the first 6 on Rhyolith and saved the rest for Ragnaros. Having a great attempt fail because 1 healer has been tormented for the entire fight and getting decimation blade 4x in a row is not especially fun. Still, glad to have this down and be 6/7 - aside from our attendance/computer/lag issues we've basically done the first 6 in about 3 weeks of raiding, not bad for 2 1/2 nights a week.

Heroic Ragnaros is all that's left - going to take a slow and steady approach on him so as not to burn people out, but he will be dead before 4.3. Getting the first 6 on a nice clean farm night and some sweet mounts is the next priority - great job everyone for sticking out the frustrating parts and continuing to plow content! ^.^
