Hebestia returned to raiding yesterday, giving us a chance at Algalon (surviving Big Bangs now!). We wiped to him for an hour before moving on to TOGC.
We finally managed to take Jaraxxus down after a couple of attempts. The fight just seemed to stretch on and on. Our kill was over seven minutes long.
There is definitely a lot going on this fight, and slow DPS on portals or volcanoes meant lots of Kisses/Infernals, which spelled almost-certain death for somebody. This week I felt a lot more confident in my ability to get Kiss off after last week’s kerfuffles. It’s basically 1) make sure you have a target (by frantically mashing the Tab button), and then 2) cast Starfire. A double Kiss means that I have to stick to instants for 12 seconds (or until my arcane spells come off lockdown, if I have time to pay attention to that).
After Jaraxxus went down we went on to give Faction Champions a bunch of tries. We got our asses handed to us. I don’t think we got our first target (priest) down even once. Oy.
In other news, my guildies say that 3.2.2 is going live today, so it’s patch time once I get home from the office!
