Last night was our first one-night ZA clear, which took us about three hours.
We are getting closer and closer to that third timed chest. Last night we quickly downed Akil’zon and Nalorakk before blazing through Jan’alai’s trash (one of our smoothest Jan’alai trash clears yet!). When we started on Jan’alai, we had six to seven minutes left on the sac timer–more than enough time to take Jan’alai down. Once again, our problem was that we had too many people who were unfamiliar with the fight and they got messed on adds or bombs. As we try to make our weekly ZA group more consistent, I am confident that this will no longer be a problem.
Halazzi and Malacrass are very much on farm for us–we dropped them like flies. Having a holy priest for Malacrass makes healing through Spirit Bolts a joke.
Our first attempt on Zul’jin went very smoothly, especially considering that we were running with three raid members who had never seen the fight before. For some reason phase three was a joke last night. I can only assume that everyone was popping their pots, stones, and bandages, because there were few times when I felt the need to actually run out and heal someone. What got us on our first attempt was the healing not being quick enough in phase four. We got lucky on our second attempt (our feral druid got Claw Rage three times in a row as opposed to, say, our holy priest) and Zul’jin went down, marking our second Zul’jin down.
