After deciding to extend the raid lockout in order to maximize our chances at clearing the tier before Christmas, Vortex continued its strong showing in Legion by defeating Cenarius and Xavius with plenty of time left.

On Mythic, Cenarius is certainly the more difficult fight of the two. While Malfurion still helps us out by cleansing one of Cenarius' seeds, the corrupted demigod manages to wrestle control back after a short while, forcing us to deal with the previously cleansed add as the next wave is activating. Our strategy for this was the most popular one : throw everything at the boss to force his transition in phase two before the dreaded double twisted sisters (I'm sure you could name a band like that... wait), and then deal with the fallout. This involves tanking the dragon guardians in a corner of the room, where Balmagash and Blistor had the uninspiring but so important job of staying alive while not doing much else, while the rest of the raid is trying to push the boss to 35% in less than 2:45. After that, the fight requires dancing around the moving walls while you finish off the boss in an increasingly small area.

To a certain degree, Xavius is almost mechanically easier than his Normal and Heroic counterpart. The main new mechanic is that you get to pick who gets to enter the dream stage at four different stages. While it's sometimes a bit tricky to manage when combined with other abilities and particularly unforgiving when someone dies, the fact that on every single pull you can have the same dream groups sure makes planning the strategy a lot easier. Other than that, the fight is very similar to the other versions. After making changes to the dream groups and working out timings a bit better, our first P3 resulted in a very clean first kill for us.

With that, the Emerald Dream is saved and we'll turn our focus towards Trial of Valor where we certainly hope to achieve a couple Mythic kills before Nighthold opens in early 2017.
