Last time I wrote one of these, I did it from the perspective of Auctioneer Yarley (highly recommended, I wouldn’t use anyone else… the rest of them are crooks).
This week though, I actually got to attend the weekly slashfest through Black Temple and had the satisfaction of abusing Supremus and Shade.
What made the experience all the more fun, was how quickly the Shade of Akama encounter is over, and the stunned silence where all the noobs (yah, me) nervously glance around, waiting for the other shoe to drop, while uniformly wondering, “that was a boss fight?”. I suppose I’m making light of everyone else’s coordination, but in the time it took to figure out what it was I was supposed to be sheeping, we were looking down at the loot-infested-still-smoking corpse, and wondering when phase 2 was going to start.
On the other hand, it’s nice to get a break from encounters that are drawn out, and right on the ragged edge. Tonight we one-shotted Naj’entus, Supremus, and Akama, but didn’t get to try any further because we spent the first half of the raid night doing progression on Azgalor, which isn’t nearly as much fun, since a wipe means drudging through the 8 waves of aoe again. Hopefully we’ll get a shot at Archimonde later this week… yeah, nice and easy… that’ll be fun.
