The Broken Spine

August 14, 2012 in Boss Kills, Cataclysm

The Shattered Ravens' first "kill" of Spine of Deathwing

Another boss kill without a corpse. This is getting to be a habit.

After a night where it looked like we wouldn’t have enough people to raid at various points, we instead had a cracking run, dropping seven of the eight bosses in the raid – including our first ever kill of the spine of Deathwing. We completed that encounter on our third attempt, after tank base jumping and druid ignorance caused the first two wipes…

A good, solid attempt at the final, Madness of Deathwing encounter, too. Could next Monday be the week we finally finish the raid?

Ultraxion falls on our second(ish) visit…

It’s slightly annoying that his boody doesn’t hang around…

The Ravens (and friends) continue their march through Dragon Soul, with the downing of the first boss of the second half of the raid. Off ship-flying we go next…

Eye, eye, eye – Occu’thar Down!

Occu'thar down
Last Monday, we dropped our first boss of the second Cataclysm raid tier – Occu’thar. w00t!

Two down, an escape from Blackwing Descent…

It’s been a long time since we dropped a brand new boss. And it’s been longer still since we did our first complete clear of an instance.

Tonight, we did both.
First up, we said “goodnight Gracie” to Halfus in the Bastion of Twilight:
The Shattered Ravens' first kill of Halfus Wyrmbreaker

Good night, sweet Halfus

And then, at long, long last, we returned to the Blackwing Descent and finally put paid to Nefarian:
The Blackwing Descent cleared
We got a couple of nice achievements for our pains:

A Night of Unfinished Business

After many attempts, finally we took down Yogg-Saron:

The fall of Yogg-Saron
Halion, alas, had a strange reluctance to fall down in front of us, and after the loss of Kaboodle to sleepy-time, we went to try our luck in the Trial of the Crusader.
Anub'Arak beaten
We cleared the place in about 30 mins. Might be time to make our way to the Cataclysm raids…

A little late, perhaps. But we got him. :-)

Rotface Redux

Here’s the last minute or so of our Rotface kill from last night. As you can see from the video, I didn’t have much to do then…

Lagtastic!

I’m not sure the WoW over iPhone tethering experiment was a great success. This is the sort of lag I was getting during Gunship:
