Continuing with our steady pace of new boss kills, I am happy to present our most recent accomplishment: beating Kilrogg Deadeye!  This was a fun fight to tackle with many things going on at once.  In our typical M.O. we pulled this one off at the end of the night after struggling to gain consistency in earlier parts of the fight.  Our killing pull was very well executed on everyone's parts.

Make no mistake however, this is a fight that relies on healers like no other.  The increased ...

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...
