So this past week I got to go on my priest Asherrylie, to heal Lower Spire + Dragons. Now, Memento Mori also had Aioka, a Disc priest (with whom Ash's gear is pretty close) and Mord, who is a crazy good Holy Pally. Mord has single healed most of Lower Spire before, So it's safe to say that two lesser geared priests are not going to be the bane of Memento Mori's existence. He actually Solo Healed Saurfang that night, asking Aioka and I to go Shadow (Which wouldn't have made much of a difference anyways, Our DPS is probably 5.5k and 4.8k respectively) But we managed to down Deathbringer Saurfang before any marks went out.
Now, you're thinking that if we healed Dreamwalker successfully, (Which we did) that it probably looked like this:
Priests on Raid and Pally on Dragon.
Let me tell you that it was completely the opposite. Mord healed the raid (I know, a paladin, raid healing? I told you that Mord is a crazy good paladin), and Aioka and I Healed Dreamwalker up while gathering green bubbles of awesomeness. So we won that fight, huzzah, huzzah.
Then we go to Sindragosa.
I might point out that Memento is still lacking 10 solid Raid members... so we had to PUG out 2 (or was it 3) spots.
Only one of our raid members has ever seen this fight, let alone killed her successfully. And it's actually not our Raid Leader. So (hopefully) all of us have been studying the Tankspot videos throughout the week so that we know how to DPS Sindy in the face (or rather... the side).
Things went fairly well actually. Sure there were a few points in time when we killed Ice Blocks faster than we should have in the first phase, and took a lot of damage, and it really sucks when you get pulled in because you have to turn your camera all funny and what not, but we always got her to the last phase (the point when you're only supposed to have one ice block out at a time), but at that point, we don't really know what we're doing. More specifically, we are standing where we're not supposed to be, and a lot of people get blocked, which is really bad for the raid. We wipe 2 or 3 times at this particular point, and after it being past our bedtimes, we decide it's enough for the night.
Next week, we should spend some more time on Sindy, as well as roll face in the plague wing, and hope that the Blood wing goes down faster than it did the week before (to be fair, it was our first night in there, and we did successfully down it, but we wiped quite a few time, and if we want to smash Sindy's face some more, we'll need to be a little quicker).
Arthas, We're coming for you!
