There was a lot of excitement with the release of 6.2 this week and the new raid instance Hellfire Citadel (less excitement about dailies, rep grinds, and shipyards). We started off our week clearing normal, to familiarize ourselves with the mechanics for each fight. We then ended the week strong going 12/13 heroic and getting a 95% execution ranking on Heroic Mannoroth! We enter mythic progression this week with main swaps, new members, and having lost some members as they focus on stuff IRL, but our team feels stronger than ever. Let's make this week a good one.
He's finally dead! This probably has to be one of the most nail biting endings we've had to a boss, and Multi echoed the sentiments of many when he said, upon looking at Blackhand dead on the ground, "I'm shaking". The obvious MVP here is Kink, because...rogues too strong. An epic kill to end our raid progression through Blackrock Foundry, finishing in the top 100. Stay focused team, because Hellfire Citadel awaits!
Last Sunday we were able to kill this dude in about an hour of attempts and after reaching Phase 3 just a couple of times. Yesterday we came in for our farm night, and farm we did! Killing all 9/10 of our farm bosses (including the newly downed Blast Furnace), with time to spare. The rest of our raid week can now be spent pushing Mythic Blackhand. We're almost there team!
After a shameful amount of bomb deaths, hours of dc and connection issues, and several strat/comp changes we finally got the kill. Our last pull of the night, after 4 hours of tedious wipes, everything finally clicked and we ended up with one of the cleanest executions this boss has seen. Looking forward to a change of scenery as we progress onto Mythic Blast Furnace.
This is definitely a fast paced encounter, with lots of interesting positional challenges. After many obligatory trains to the face deaths, we got the movement down and were able to bring in the kill at the end of our raid week. Now onto Mythic Iron Maidens we go!
We've had another great week of progression for Reign in Power. After a frustrating Thursday night run of buggy attempts on Kromog, where stone breath just kept randomly going off even with tanks in melee (we even got 4 in a row once!) we came back Sunday night to get the kill. We were then able to make incredible progress on Operator Thogar, getting him to 38% in 15 attempts. Looks like we may have another kill under our belt soon!
Picking up where we left off Tuesday, we started out on Mythic Gruul. In just about an hour we had him down, leaving us with time to do heroic BRF to get extra loot. We are now poised to make Sunday a Mythic Kromog filled night of great progression. Let's keep this momentum going!
Continuing on with the success of our first half of raid on Tuesday, we went to try our hand at Mythic Flamebender, and left with yet another new kill for the week. To sweeten the deal we had just enough time for one attempt on Mythic Beastlord, and we were able to one-shot it and collect that loot!
Following a rough couple weeks of progression, Reign in Power certainly started making our comeback last night. In our first night of raiding for the week we decided to forgo our usual heroic clear and delve right into mythic progression, starting with this bad boy. With a new strat in hand, we got the kill, and guaranteed ourselves a repeatable kill in the coming farm weeks. And it looks like our change in positioning for Hans and Franz is paying off, as we trekked there after Oregorger, and immediately one-shot it. Keep up the good work team!
I'm not going to lie. These guys gave us more trouble than we expected. Even those of us who typically excel at mechanics were getting our faces smashed in the patterned stamper phases. However, we ended up changing positioning and just a couple attempts later we had it down. It was obvious that we were unintentionally making it more difficult for ourselves prior to that. We continue on into progression, humbled, eager to prove ourselves, and optimistic at what the next week holds for us.
