Wow, I look back at two posts ago and am boasting about how Magmadar was giving us troubles and we finally took him down. How quickly things evolve when you’re not paying attention.
Back on June 20th, The Republic guild was formed by fusing key members of both MTD and The Exiles. This was done in an effort to join hardcore raiding members together to more efficiently work through the Molten Core. All in all, this has been a great success. During our first MC run, we downed all eight bosses. The next week, we went 6 for 8 on Friday night and finished the last two the following Tuesday. This past Friday, we finished all eight bosses on Friday night and spawned Majordomo Executus who pwned us good. As late as it was that night (2:30am server time, we had been there 8 hours), we decided to call it a night and come back refreshed on Tuesday.
Finally, after a few wipes where mostly bad luck was involved, we took down Domo and brought up Ragnaros. First off, he’s huge. Seeing him come out was pretty fantastic and I took a bunch of screenshots, as I’m sure a lot of people do when they first see him. Anyhoo, after much strategizing and organization and practicing of techniques, we engaged him for the first time. All I have to say is ouch. That dude hurts. We got him to 82% before our tank died and everything went to hell. The second time was marginally more successful, bringing him down to 79%. The third and successive times were more clusterfucks than anything else. Taking this guy down will require some massive brainstorming and cohesive organization. However, I have no doubt The Republic will be pwning this dude in no time. One of the keys will be getting Domo down on the initial nights so we have a whole separate night to spend working on Rag. This should also clear up time to spend working on Onyxia and Blackwing Lair.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have work to do.
