Heroic work continues; Yorsahj flushed!
« on: December 21, 2011, 10:26:41 AM »
Following the oddity that was our first heroic Morchok kill, we were refreshed and decided to focus on Yor'sahj for our next heroic target. For this fight, Blizzard followed their traditional strategy of piling on more of the same - everything hit harder and instead of dealing with 3 potential abilities each ooze wave, we suddenly had to deal with 4 and the complicated interactions that flowed from that change. Suddenly, what was a pretty easy fight turned into a monster of an encounter as every role was stretched to the limit and we did our best to survive through incredible raid AoE damage and multiple waves of adds. We did all this while facing a boss with nearly 90 million health and a 10 minute enrage timer.


It took two nights of work, but we eventually pulled it off. Our healers are always awesome, but they deserve special credit for this fight for keeping us alive in the face of all that incoming damage. This fight also turned out to be an example of expert tuning by Blizzard - extremely challenging, but doable. We're thankful to see that given the ease of the regular modes of Dragon Soul and we're looking forward to future heroics!.
