Got the chance to do a few hours of Lich King attempts with one of the 10-man groups from my guild last night and over the weekend. Can I just say OMG GET OUT OF THE DEFILE, PEOPLE.
That was our biggest problem – and I know there’s a somewhat random element to it (kind of reminded me of Malchezzar’s infernals in Kara, actually) but RUN AWAY RUN AWAY DO NOT STAND IN THE INKY BLACK DEATH!
The lowest we got him was about 30% but there was always some kind of unfortunate ending… someone getting defile and then getting grabbed by a valk, or that kind of thing. I have the feeling we can get him down soon, we just need a little luck!
It was a little frustrating as a Mutilate rogue (lacking uber aoe and having to target switch constantly) but I managed to do ok DPS. This seems like another fight that’s a little more friendly to ranged, unfortunately :\
more thoughts on this fight to come, I’m sure!
In other news I love the Guild’s new music video and you should totally watch it, even if you don’t normally watch the show <3
