Raid Summary 12/6 - 12/7 2015
SOCRETHAR DOWN! 8/13 Heroic HFC
"You killed me once. It will not happen again!"
Sorry, Socrethar. We killed you twice. Now stay down.
This week's raid was grand: we absolutely plowed through our obligatory normal HFC Mannoroth/Archimonde kill, and absolutely rolled through the bosses of HFC Heroic up to Iskar, recording one-shot kills all the way through. Remember when Iron Reaver used to give us trouble? Yeah those days are over.
Iskar was our roadblock for the last few raids, but on Sunday we clicked into place and had what can be described as a textbook kill: nobody died, everybody did mechanics correctly, and it was butter. Huge props to GSRage for his mega-accurate and super helpful calls during the Eye of Anzu phase.
Then it was back to Socrethar. We tweaked a few things, died a few times, and then suddenly.... in true Icrontic fashion, it clicked. Boom. Done.
We had a couple of attempts on Fel Lord Zakuun and should have no problems downing him next week.
For next week we are going to repeat the current pattern: Normal Mannoroth/Archimonde for a quick ring upgrade, then on to Heroic HFC fresh. It seems like Iskar might be farm status soon, so we should be back plugging away at Zakuun sooner than not. Once we get one more Gorefiend kill, we'll probably be starting HFC at Iskar/Socrethar heroic in future raids.
See you next week!
