A little over two months since we first pushed into the third and fourth waves in this encounter, and with roughly 1/3 of the guild being new since that point, we finally got a raid together to attempt it again and killed it. Sadly the fight is nowhere near what it used to be, but it's still challenging enough that it may be a stopping point for many guilds (until the next nerf, anyway). Things are tentatively looking up, although the new Trial of the Crusader instance is a complete joke so far. Hopefully the heroic modes bring a better challenge, without Blizzard feeling the need to nerf them as soon as a few guilds have beaten them, like they have done with Ulduar since day one.
We'd been making pulls on this on and off over the past few weeks but never seemed to have the right set of non-melee DPS online to make serious attempts. Tonight we happened to have the right people, and here we are!
We didn't put much effort into 10-mans this time around, but I wish we had. Still, it was nice to finish up and get this guy down, and I look forward to seeing the fight on heroic mode.
