Raid Day Wednesday


Today we spent about an hour practicing on Archimonde. We didn’t down him but we got fairly close. It does turn out that there is something I don’t like about Archimonde. His final phase is a bit of a clusterfuck.

This was somewhat true of Blackhand as well. The big problem with this is you can’t really practice it without reaching the phase. 6-7 minutes of going through the motions to practice another minute and a half of insanity.

Ultimately the fight is still more or less good. The addition of the fel beam is pretty cute and doesn’t take away from the fight. I just would have preferred some kind of epic transition in phase 4 rather than “let’s just make everything random.”

Is what it is, which I may have already said, but once the night gets this far along it becomes difficult to remember. As for the following, we then downed Socrethar and Iskar. I got some new boots out of the deal and rerolled 50 gold in total. Hooray, those tokens really rock. So handy.

Also, for some reason, I went and got some more candy from the headless horsemen. I’m not sure why I even bother. Even when I do eventually get the mount, if I do, it is going to end up like the legendary cloak where I’m not happy in the slightest. Such bad design.
