Vectis is a boss that has given us a lot of trouble over the last few raids. It is a DoT management boss that is more difficult with smaller raid sizes like ours. We have tried multiple tactics until we found one that worked best; stacking up and moving away from the Gestated player. Bad luck killed us a few times due to the DoTs stacking all on one person, but for our kill we managed it with very few casualties!
Congratulations everybody on beating a tough boss. Now to see what the later bosses in the raid have to offer!
Over our last couple of raid attempts we got a couple more bosses down!
First, on Tuesday 1tth's raid we managed to beat the Fetid Devourer on our first attempt! He's quite a simple boss, with adds to kill, breath to dodge, and tanks to not stand next to.
And then on our Tuesday 19th's raid we beat Zek'vos, Herald of N'zoth! This one took us a few attempts, and we struggled on our first night. We did better on our second night, getting to the later phases on our first attempt. Unfortunately we lost a few Lemmings due to a disconnect and instance server issues not letting them back into the raid. We thought we'd have another go and got the kill! Next time hopefully everybody will be there for it!
We had an excellent turnout for our traditional Fun Run event for the new raid.
Lots of fun was had getting to know the first couple of bosses of the raid. In fact, we got to know them so well we killed two of them!
Taloc is an interesting fight involving lots of blood & cudgels all taking place on an elevator. It took us a few attempts to get used to moving away from the cudgel attack while also trying to keep as much of the room clear of blood pools, but we quickly dispatched the boss. Even on our very first attempt we managed to get him down to below 1% before we wiped!
M.O.T.H.E.R. (don't ask me to repeat what it stands for) is a complicated fight that required a bit of pre-planning. After a few attempts of trial and error to see what worked, we finally got a pattern down to send people through the forcefields. Once we found a system that worked, we managed to defeat her!
Thanks to everybody who attended tonight! I don't think we expected to kill two bosses on our first excursion into the raid, so everybody can give themselves a pat on the back! Let's hope our success continues.
