I’ve been raiding with my new team for a couple of weeks now. We are currently 5/10 mythic, which I am incredibly happy with.
Sunday last week we managed to get down Mythic Flamebender Ka’graz and Mythic Gruul on the same night, which was an awesome feeling. Wednesday just gone had a few people missing because of State of Origin so we just did a Heroic clear.
Last night was our first attempts at Mythic Kromog. What a fun fight that is! I was really happy because they asked one of the druid healers to go boomkin, so it meant I got to heal for the night. I didn’t realise just how much I had missed healing. The joy of being able to face whatever wall I want to was overwhelming. 😀 In all seriousness though, it’s a great fight to heal. It’s very well organised group which makes fights like this a lot easier to manage. Cooldowns are organised before the fight, and the healer lead is great at calling things on the fly so it feels a lot more controlled. I think I did alright healing last night, especially given at the moment my gear is multistrike priority for elemental, so gear is not at its best (though not terrible either).
The biggest difficulty at first was getting people out of the grabby hands fast enough to move in to the new mythic phase (the pillar phase). We had quite a few wipes because people weren’t getting out fast enough. but we got through that, and then it became working on getting all 3 pillars down before the phase ended. The little pop up pillars are a pain in the butt, and you find yourself running around so much that it’s hard to get a cast off, but there are some sweet spots if you’re lucky.
Our best attempt last night was 18% which was pretty good. I’m hoping we’ll get it next week because after that is Thogar and he gives me 4 BiS pieces!
