Krosus Kouldn't Kut It!

Mookaduka o posted Apr 18, 17

After many close pulls, and getting rid of our second left foot, we finally brought Krosus down this past week.  This brings us to the halfway mark in Nighthold, 5/10M!  Nice work on everyone learning the dance and handling the adds properly.  Also props to the healers for 3 healing the whole ordeal.

Tanks: Astaroth, Viperx

Healers: Faellx, Mortis, Nikyre

Melee: Dhays, Dkthemaximus, Intoodeep, Melisan, Mokogorken, Widdleton

Ranged: Ailylia, Darkerworg, Elycee, Exquizet, Farewell, Mookaduka, Naltharion, Rainashota, Torag

Up next on the list is Tichondrius.  He will certainly be a challenge for us, as we lack an ideal amount of Rogues for the encounter.  So we will have to plan around that fact.

The First of Firsts!

It's been awhile since I've made a post.  I can luckily back this post up with the hard work we've been putting in lately.  Weeks back we finally went back to Mythic Trial of Valor to take down Odyn and Guarm, and take them down we did!

Afterwards, we journeyed back to the Nighthold to take on Mythic Spellblade Aluriel.  No one else on the server had progressed on her until we started working on her.  We finally downed her this past week after our farm at the beginning of the second arcane phase!  Mark of Frost coordination and melee taunt-cheesing finally all lined up correctly and we were able to take her down.  This fight was not an effort by just 3-4 people.  This fight required everyone to execute many responsibilities correctly.  So props to everyone who was in on the kill!  This is our first realm first on the expansion.  Let's hope we can get some more in the future.

Next up is Krosus.  Once we nail the dance and the handling of the adds, Tichondrius will be next!

"Easy Three" Cleared!

Mookaduka o posted Mar 6, 17

Well once we finally got to sit down and enjoy an evening of purely Mythic progression, we made quick work of Chronomatic Anomaly and Trilliax!  Both of these kills spearhead us back to being tied for first in Nighthold progression.  I want to thank the tanks for holding out like badasses long enough for Torag's DoTs to wipe the last couple million HP off Anomaly on our kill.  Hopefully next week it goes smoother!

This next week, we turn our attention to Trial of Valor, as we will be making a quick return in hopes of finishing off Odyn (14% last week!) and slaying Helya's favored pet, Guarm.  Once we reach that point in progression, it will be a tough slog forward.  Keep pushing!  

We made quick progress this past Thursday.  After a couple good nights of Heroic Gul'dan progression, he finally met a swift death.  Thanks to everyone handling the Flames of Sargeras very well in the last phase, we were able to remain healthy during the end of the fight for a long time to secure the kill.

Up next, we took 20 players into Mythic Nighthold for a very quick and easy kill of Mythic Skorpyron.  He was very nice, and dropped some good items for us.  We didn't have too many problems with players getting knocked back into the walls....outside of the single time where only one crystal was up and 3/4 of the raid got thrown into a single corner.  Luckily we all lived through it!

Up next is a more formidable opponent; Chronomatic Anomaly.  We didn't go in with a solid gameplan on him initially last week, but this week we should hopefully be a lot more prepared.

Short post, but I thought I would make everyone aware of two adjustments that will be made to the DAWN Loot System for Nighthold due to what we want to try with Tier gear and constant comments from raid members.

1. Since we are funneling tier gear to raiders this tier, tier gear WILL NOT count towards your DAWN score.  You will simply get tier when it's your turn.  This is qualitatively-based off the potency of your tier bonus, whether it changes your build, your attendance, and your personal raid performance.

2. Due to popular demand, offspecs have been removed entirely from DAWN.  This means rolling on offspec gear will no longer affect your loot score.  However, if I ever catch players abusing this to obtain main spec loot without sacrificing their priority, they will be punished.  This could range from straight numerical punishments to that player's lootscore, to reimplementing an offspec score for that particular person so their offspec affects their score for a certain duration of time.

I am always open to comments on the DAWN Loot system.  So if you have any, please feel free to share them with me to make it a better loot system.
