Re: WoWzers!

I figured they'd nerf that but it seems with fair Ulduar focusing everyones attention and the mount Achievement reward removed they don't care. Meh, I did it pre-patch so I'm not too bothered. Did some Ulduar 10 this weekend coz the group was a Tank down. Nothing exciting except me getting steamed a...

Ignis and Kologar down. We wasted a lot of time on Ignis changing the strat and eventually decided to ignore the adds and just burn him. I tanked him and it was hectic when he had 9 stacks on him. We still got his sorry ass though so it's all good. Auriya next. I'm kinda surprised that strategy wor...

5 healers is fairly impressive for 3D IMO. How did you guys handle the crazy damage during the Shadron/Vesperon phase? Whenever we do it we have at least 6 healers and usually an offspec (like Spriest or boomkin) to heal after the first drake is dead. Anything less just feels unsustainable for us. ...
