We're back on track! With a recent Sisters of the Moon kill, we've just about cleared out half of the deadly Tomb of Sargeras!

This fight is quite a difficulty spike from the heroic variant with a single mechanical change. Each time a player triggers Astral Purge (the explosion from someone moving one side of the moon to the other), they give the entire raid an Astral Vulnerability debuff. This debuff increases the damage taken from Astral Purge by a large amount, and of course, the debuff stacks.

This requires everyone to be incredibly organized and aware of their positioning, because 7 or 8 players triggering the debuff at once can easily turn a perfect pull into a wipe. We assigned everyone markers to stand on, and made sure we were standing in the right spot whenever the moon crossed our paths. Of course, mechanics like the glaives, eclipses, and moon burns throw a major wrench into this plan, so the whole 1...

After a kill post hiatus, I'm proud to bring to you another totally legit picture taken immediately after our first Demonic Inquisition kill!

For this fight, the difference between the mythic and heroic versions is quite small but very impactful at the same time. On mythic difficulty, every time a player comes back out from Confessing in the underground realm, they spawn an add that will fixate and track down a player. Each time a new add spawns, they buff all of the preexisting adds, so it becomes incredibly important to have organized groups confessing down and coming back up. We had to utilize our tanks to make countdowns, waiting for fel squalls and other deadly mechanics, all to make sure the upper group can handle the amount of demons.

Additionally, as per usual, everything hits harder, dispels are more important than ever, and positioning is key. Players have to be incredibly careful of their torment me...

And another boss is down! After progressing on him a few nights previous, we walked in with a fresh reset and one-shot Harjatan!

This boss is a big check on output from healers/dps/tanks, and with a raid team like ours that excels at knocking things over, this boss was relatively simple. On Mythic difficulty, the boss has four piles of eggs laying around the encounter room. These eggs will periodically start to flash a color and begin to hatch. The color corresponds to the type of tadpole that will eventually come out of the egg if left unsmashed. So, tanks have to drag the boss all over the room in order to let the DPS smack the egg we least want to deal with! After that, it's simply a matter of mowing down all the adds, interrupting the healers, and dodging the painful, terrifying, and deadly puddles of..... water!
