H Lord Jaraxxus Down!!!

jaraxxus

YEAH!!!!

Two shot Lord Jaraxxus on Heroic mode!

After perusing some World of Logs logs, we saw that most of the groups who downed him used 2 tanks, 2 heals. So we dropped to 2 heals and beat the snot out of him :)

Yours truly had Jaraxxus. I always feel special when I get to tank the boss (even when it’s because the MT takes the harder job, the adds). Instead of moving him around the outside like I do on 25 man, we just kept him in the center and I kited him just a little bit when necessary. This actually helped keep everything centrallized.

Firefighter (10 man) proved to be more of a challenge. We saw Phase 4, but were not very close to downing him. I was DPS and was certainly feeling my inexperience in ret quite keenly. We are also very short ranged DPS, which makes things in phase 3 exceptionally complicated.

I half expect to be left out of Firefighter next week because instead of the second tank in her DPS spec they should really grab another ranged. On the other hand, I know the guild wants to keep a constant roster on the 10 man, and my DPS isn’t too shabby. We’ll see…..

10 man H TOC, in which I wipe the raid

I came along on our guild’s progression-focused 10 man and had a blast again.

We cleared 10 man TOC quickly again and turned to H TOC. I was excited to see H Jaraxxus again but twas not to be, since beasts gave us problems this week.

I blame the first wipe on me – I turned the wrong way when Icehowl was sprinting at the wall and he smacked into me. /facepalm … it’s actually easier to get out of his way when he’s running at you (I did that just fine) than when he’s running at someone juuuuust next to you. I fail. Definitely taking speed pots next time and checking VERY closely to see which side of me his target is on.

Wiped quickly the second time on worms when 4 people with the paralytic toxin came too close to me (I always have the burning bile) and got royally owned by his frontal cone. /range for the win…

I would really love to see us give H TOC a serious try- we have beasts pretty much down, silly mistakes aside, we one shot them last week- but we are pretty focused on Ulduar and hard modes right now. Well, H toc will come….
