Quick, go check.
No, really. DO EEET!
Great! Thanks for trusting me! 😀
Anyway, as you are now aware, The Zug Initiative has finally beaten the Log-In screen.
That’s right! Sindragosa is a pile of bones now.
It was a pretty big hurdle for us. We had issues with it a month or two ago… well, mostly phase 3/final ground phase. In our defence, we always seemed to have a slightly different lineup for whenever we made our attempts. And actually, last night was no different. We had two melee DPS that had never seen the fight and it was the first time I was doing it on my Death Knight (instead of my druid).
So, we did have a few hiccups in the first phases with our melee running away from the Blistering Cold thingy. I also ended up getting too many frost breath debuffs. 300% reduced movement speed is all sorts of awful. Fortunately, we ended up switching tanks after each air phase, which helped immensely.
Phase 3 still proved to be problematic. The group got fairly scattered after each ice tomb, some ice tombs hit too many people, and some were a bit too far away from the group. But each time we inched a little bit closer to Sindy’s demise. 15%. 13%. 10%. We said “one more time” about three or four times…it was hard to give up after getting that close.
But something clicked on the successful attempt. The healers did a phenomenal job of communicating when they needed to switch to tank healing. The other tank communicated to me that he couldn’t get rid of his stacks so I used my defensive cooldowns as timely as possible. We communicated to DPS positioning better (ie: not running too far, getting re-grouped up and not so scattered, etc). It all fell into place and everyone was on top of their situational awareness. We managed to lose only one DPS. It was fantastic to finally get that beast down!
Heck, we were so excited about overcoming this hurdle that we almost left Pacheco in a Frost tomb. Even she forgot she was still in one. 😛
Anyway, it’s over 12 hours after the fact and I’m still pretty damn stoked about it. And I’m looking forward to laying the smack down on Arthas!
