After our successful week before, we continue our run into Mythic Hellfire Citadel by conquering the next boss in line: Kormrok!



This was an encounter that rewarding planning and set up.  Every time Kormrok leaps to a pool he will cover the room in damaging sludge except for the spots that are covered by raiders.  After getting some practice pulls during a previous raid night, we came back with a better set up to clear out a more advantageous area.  The last brick wall we had to bust through was rune handling, with some slight strategy changes to move them towards the center thanks to our ranged team we were able to repeat the more difficult part of the fight successfully.

Ultimately though, when it comes down to it, this is a quick fight about damage.  We situated ourselves to the minimum amount of healers and we hit the boss hard.  Shortly after entering the last phase, before the...

Following some roster fluctuations, Vortex finds all we needed to clear Hellfire Assault was 20 people!


(Hellfire Assault not pictured, though really it was just a chest.)

We have had some previous practice with Hellfire Assault, however I don't think anyone expected us to take it down in a single pull.  This encounter is one we "affectionately" refer to as a trash fight.  It places emphasis on knowing your priority targets and chewing through waves of enemies quickly and efficiently.  To cover the entire room, the raid splits into two equal groups and functions separately until part-way through the fight where both groups come together to handle a large set of incoming waves in the middle before breaking off again in a mad dash to complete the fight before you are overwhelmed with mobs.  The end is never clean (so far for us), but the only thing that matters is that the enemy retreats...

Vortex has toppled the Hellfire Citadel. In traditional fashion our team of adventurers have banded together to slay the twisted Eradar demon. Gul'dan in a last ditch effort pulled this fel leader from the Dark Portal in hopes stopping us once and for all. Vortex rallied and pulled off this kill with a clean execution of the multiphase fight.

On top of dealing with adds,fire and spires that sent our ranged team skyward, the team had to deal with shadow chains that bound us with a dark explosive energy as well as being the target of the linear Wrought Destruction waves. Finally we had to send small teams into the nether itself to stop the demons from pouring into the battlefield.

While it rained fel energy and infernals from the sky we just nearly pulled out the victory over this Demonlord once and for all. Good work Vortex. Onward to Mythic Mode.
