Heellllllooooo Vortex. I have been elected as the officer to take care of our kill screens, and the all important post that you are reading right now.

Grong is the 2nd boss for the horde, while the alliance fights our Jadefire Masters. The basic mechanics of the fight is that Grong slowly gains rage throughout the fight, and does more damage depending on how much rage he has, if he gets full rage he does a Torment channel that does raid wide aoe, it pulses 4 times (one for each 25 rage) and puts a nasty dot for each pulse on to the raid. The way you counter this is with the most annoying part of this fight.

Mekkatorque thinks he's all clever and built Apetagonizer 3000 to cause Grong to gain more rage throughout the fight, while it apetagonizes Grong, it also spits out some pretty horrific voice lines. A simple interrupt order, and keeping Grong 15 yards from the bots prevents Grong from gaining any additiona...

Greetings, friends! With the launch Battle of Dazar'alor and the opening of Mythic, Vortex decided to take a break from our push through the Heroic version of the instance to give the first boss (Champion Frida) a try. This resulted in a quick 2-shot kill, and because so many top guilds are protecting their logs, the perception that we're also on the hunt for world firsts.

Frida (The boss in the Horde version of the raid) functions much as she does in Normal and Heroic, save that she will cast Prayer of the Fallen, necessitating that raiders be ready to avoid a bevy of damage and interrupt adds (Including Disciples that have already been killed!)

All in all a very fun encounter. Good work everyone!

While simultaneously battling the joys of updated addons and class changes with the launch of 8.1, Vortex took down Mythrax in his final form.

The fight changes in that Mythrax brings along his pal Xalzaix (Not to be confused with Xalilith), a Squidward-looking fellow who casts some of the same annoying beam abilities for which Mythrax was previously known to have a monopoly. Most of the changes involve stacking to place Xalzaix near the boss for cleaving in P1, and successfully managing Void Echoes in proper raid placement.

Great work, everyone! It's time to kill a slug!
