I killed GARALON!!!!

#1ChocoboMog123Posted 2/6/2013 11:19:05 AM
Normal, obviously >_>

Man, for a fight that really tested the stupidity factor, that was actually really fun once we got it. Unlike Hagara and Sindragosa...
Initially, I had no real opinion about Garalon. But, as we wiped, I slowly drifted towards hating the fact that it's just one constant monotonous fight (even Yor'sahj had some variation). Then, we stopped wiping at 80%-60%, to hitting the enrage timer. Fixed a few things and two more pulls and we stomped him. <insert RAID joke>

Also, numerous top 50 normal MSV rankings. I might push for number 1 Demo Lock on normal Feng or Will, sometime, both are pretty reachable with my current gear. Feng might take some work, but Will is just a matter of me playing smarter.

Garalon is more of a DPS check really, especially with a standard 2 tanks 2/3 healers. After figuring out the fight, you figure out it's just a durability game. Healers figure out how to heal , DPS have to bring out numbers, and tanks... do their thing.


Wait till Amber Shaper, now THAT'S an idiot-check :P

Gratz TC. Glad to see you are pickin' up on the raiding scene again. Happy for you. ^^

Seriously, Amber-shaper seems to be the road block for normal mode more than Garalon, while Garalon is a heavy dps check for heroic. Have fun and post adventures about Un'sok, the stories about that fight are always worthy to read!

Progression wise I stopped the game while i had 7/16hc (MGV+Blade Lord). My guild is now 14/16 with herioc Tsulong next.

Gratz mon. How many wipes did it take you?
We've had varying degrees of success. With our full main team we absolutely destroyed Garalon on our like 15th go, but when we lost a few people we ended up wipefesting on it. Worst fight ever to tank, you just zerg the whole time nearly (our group doesn't have tanks do pheromones on normal, it's a waste of our time when a ranged can do it with less positioning issues and less output lost).

4/16 HC
We tried like 15 times each on Spirit Kings, Blade Lord, and Wind Lord heroic this week, and each time we were making decent progress. Then the people started shouting about running out of time for the week, and how they wanted to go do farm content for their ****ing purples, so we ended up killing nothing new this week. >.<

On the plus side though, another guild paid us to carry one of their raiders through our Empress farm so they could go to Terrace. I only got 5k gold out of it personally, but that feels nice. <.<

12 the first day, 12 the second. The third day, we got down the kiting having the tanks, myself, and one healer kite (4/5 of the least fail) on the first pull. The second pull we pushed to enrage and found we needed more deeps. Third pull we fixed some stuff and wiped at 4.1% on body and one leg at 100k, and I learned the timing for soaking the enrage. Fourth pull we killed him 6 seconds to enrage, so our "have the Lock and DK live 8 extra seconds"-plan was unnecessary.

Our raid leader got an empress kill, so we killed Protectors (elite), last night, also running into DPS issues but running without one of our better DPS. Then took two pulls on Tsulong just to see it and failed at killing the adds.

With late people, we're only raiding an average of 2.5 hours a day, two days a week, started pretty damn late into the tier, and only got serious around January, so I'm feeling pretty good about our progression pacing. Next tier will go much better.

I'm not expecting issues with Amber Shaper, I seen it in a pug, but I KNEW Garalon would be a brick wall for us. I'm surprised we got it as fast as we did.

Edit: Also, for those still working on H MSV, do you bother clearing the rest? How easy are Stone Guard, Will, and Feng (fights I ranked on).

My progression? Just killed Elegon for the first time this week, and last week I got to Spirit Kings. Hopefully I'll get through Will tonight.

Weapons need to stay the same other than bows/xbows/guns. This is to prevent noobs being owned by 85s in tuxedos wielding flowers...like wtf?-Rydethetiger

16/16 10m normal. Haven't started heroics due to our roster constantly changing on a weekly basis. Trying to get ourselves settled so we can start.

You're 12 ilvls ahead of me (and I'm still going to be you).
((Granted, that rank is from 3 weeks ago.))
