We are still trucking along through hard modes, snagging a Maloriak kill last night. The fight in and of itself took us a little bit longer than I feel it should have – largely to spending the first two nights working on it with interrupt woes. Once that was shored up, we started doing much better.
A few things to note on the encounter – while there is a lot going on, I honestly can’t help but feel that the first 2/3 of the fight is all about interrupting the right shit at the right time. (This must be pretty hellish for Aussie guilds with high latency). We found that the best way to have your interupters deal with this is to get a mod that will let you white list/black list spells – ours favored a mod called Gnosis.
Of course, we are also pretty sure that our elemental shaman who ultimately took up the task of interrupting Arcane Storm now has a permanant twitch.
We also learned that it is, in fact, possible to get the kill 12 aberations achievement in heroic mode. Don’t ask!
I’m not 100% sure what our next heroic target will be, from the numbers it looks like many people have tackled Atramedes. We intend to peek at him tonight since he’s all we have left outside of Nef. I don’t know if he’ll end up being our next target – but what I do know is that going by the numbers it’s pretty much a toss up as to what people find “easier” :) Read the rest of this entry »
