IRON MAIDENS HEROIC DOWN
Finally, after dozens of attempts, we have downed Iron Maidens on Heroic difficulty.
I have to admit, in my WoW raiding history, this was one of the more frustrating (yet strangely satisfying) raid encounters. I think the core problem is that the fight's length feels unbalanced compared to the rest of them. Grinding away at relatively easy parts of the fight for 15 minutes only to repeatedly wipe over and over again on the last phase (hitting a difficulty wall) was pretty intense. Every time we wiped, the idea of slogging through the first two phases of the fight again were very demoralizing.
Despite its shortcomings, the fight is definitely fun, mechanics-wise, and that's its saving grace.
Congrats Icrontic! This was a great kill
