Flexing Funtimes

So, I’ve just managed to clear the first two parts of Flex SoO!

And BOY, was it fun. 😀

I did the first bit last night with some folks from my current raid group, and a bunch of battletag friends. It was a pretty mixed group but Vent was lively, and we all went in knowing it was a casual sorta run but planning to kill bosses anyway. Immerseus and the Fallen Protectors went down fairly alright, but we spent quite a number of attempts on both Norushen and Sha of Pride. Because we’d invited mostly lesser-geared folk, DPS was a little on the low side, so we ended up hitting enrage a lot; people weren’t too quick on following the mechanics. Still, we got everything down in the end so yay! I went Resto for most of it too, because we didn’t have enough healers. DAAAAAMN, perma-Efflorescence is ridiculously powerful. I LOVE IT 😀

Then earlier this evening an ex-raid teammate whispered me asking if I could heal for their Flex raid. They were doing both first and second parts, so I figured why not? I dragged Teavee in for the first and proceeded to have her tiny green butt kicked by their Disc priest (it was seriously awe-inspiring, lemme tell you). We were done in half an hour, so I hopped back on Xerna for Gates of Retribution.

Honestly, I didn’t know much about the fights AT ALL. I hadn’t done LFR yet, and we haven’t gotten that far on Normal – so what I knew was basically from the SoO healing guides over at Healiocentric. (Thank goodness I had them, too.)

I think Galakras is my favourite fight, partly because Lor’themar and Sylvanas, holy cow! Iron Juggernaut and Dark Shaman had so. much. crap. flying around that it was hard to appreciate anything, and killing Nazgrim just makes me sad. I may or may not change my mind after doing them as feral in normal mode, we’ll see.

It’s great to have finished off the first eight bosses on Flex; the experience will help when we start working on the later bosses in Normal. And it was nice to heal again, even if the Disc priest was miiiiiles ahead of me! I think I did fairly well myself, and I adore seeing my green efflo-circle 😀 Not a single piece of loot dropped, sadly, but eh, c’est la vie.

Besides, achievements!

    […] Juggernaut was much, much easier. Galakras was my favourite fight to heal on my first Flex run through this wing, but Iron Juggernaut is my favourite as feral. I get to stay on the boss the […]
