Last night was out last tries at Artie before we have to start anew, so you can imagine the pressure to get him down was (for me) intense. We had a few issues getting the group together, but after some substitutions and generous offers from peeps to step out, we got a working group. The sub offtank we had (the usual one flaked out on us again…maybe he had a good reason, I do not know) was playing a alt that I don’t think was *as* well geared as his other toons and more substitutions occured and then we got the tank from the group that had downed LK in his place. He suggested a few changes in our strat and they seemed to do okay, it’s just that we’ve been tweaking our strat with every variation on our group more and more and it’s getting quite confusing. There were a few times we got Artie to 50-something percent, once he was at 48%. Not as good as our last time, that’s for sure.
I’d get dejected (and part of me is), but I’m also stubbornly determined. Just like on Sindy, it’s ON, bitches! I will die as many times as I need to, and start looking to what I can do to change MY toon up (whichever toon is needed) to improve my healing. I should note that I mostly raided on Ryska, but brought in Endy once just as we brought in the new off-tank and it’s….very difficult for me to just switch on a dime like that. My muscle memory is telling me to hit *this* button to do *that* and wait, I don’t have that anymore, I have *that* instead and omg omg, the pain!
If only people would move when I called out (or even if I don’t) the Plague….that would help. >.<
Icy balls of throw-you-over-the-edge….bad.
Valkyr? Evil incarnate that need to die ASAFP. No really, DIE BIRDS DIE!
Location, location, location! GTFO for defile, group hug for Infest and Valkyr (unless Valk and defile come at once, then spread out juuuust enough to run after the bird grabs someone. Having a defile in the center of the platform sucks.
Raging Spirits really need to die. Having them last too long into phase 2 is a pain. No really…ouch.
