Coven of Shivarra Heroic is of questionable design as a raid boss. Most bosses are punishing to melee in one way or another but usually it comes with some kind of balance. Not this time around though. One of the core mechanics of this fight literally restricts where people can go and also does so randomly. Its fine for the boss itself, tanks can just move the boss so melee can join in but then.. They add stationary adds. Anyways. Our main survival concern was the Army. With floor restrictions and healing range issue things just got too chaotic so we made our own rules.
This was a tough encounter given the roster limits we have, but we have always been inclusive and are not about to stop now. New tactic worked and we managed to get a kill first evening trying it.

Well done, everyone!

On normal, Varimathras is incredibly straightfoward. On heroic however things get a bit different. Our patented bunny tactic was faced with two major difficulties. First off the tank bunnies had to respect eachothers private space while still huddling up enough to not feel alone. And every 30 seconds one random brave raidbunny had to face the horror of being alone for a breif period or doom all the bunnies! This was anoyingly unforgiving and we spent quite a while practicing before we managed to get it right. A very satisfying kill indeed!

Well done, everyone!

Now that we got our precious framerates back we could have another go at Kin'garoth. We figured out a working tactic last visit but ran out of time. Better prepared and with alot of time this still took a while to get down. Things snowball pretty quick here so it has to be more or less perfect. More gear will solve this though.
Also! Apperantly Red is the new Blue! Dammit, Blizzard. How do you always find ways to break random shit?

Well done, everyone! Now the hard part comes!

Next up was Imonar the Hunter Demon. Luckely he does not have any strange mechanics. This is a straight up encounter more or less and as such did not prove too difficult. Things hurt more and there were some balls during transition but other than that its just like normal version. We brought him down fairly quick.

Rest of the evening we practiced a bit against Kin'garoth. From the looks of things he wont take long to learn either.

Well done, everyone!

Its a new year and the holiday is over. Time to pick up where we left off wich was tackling Antoran High Command. We did have a bit of a poke at them before the holiday so we knew what to expect. The fight requires some learning but in the end it was mostly the mines causing issues. Nothing a little planned positioning couldnt handle though. An evening of pulls ironing out the wrinkles and down they went!

Well done, all!

Another reset and another visit to Heroic Antorus. We quickly dispatched our two previous kills and once again set our eyes on Hasabel. This time armed with what we learned from last visit though a few people were new to the fight. It did not take very long though until she kicked the bucket regardless! Its a long fight, maybe a bit too long it feels but I suspect it might be due to gear.

Next up was Eonars lush sanctum. This encounter was kinda meh on Normal and in a way still is on Heroic. Its alot more difficult but it still feels like chain pulling trash until you win. We tried with one team first but had to split up to be able to manage the waves on time.

Well done, everyone! Next is High Command wich will be interesting.

And here we are again. The final raid of an expansion and starting our heroic progression. Worldbreaker was not much different from normal and fell over on first pull. More damage and more health and some extra damage sources but nothing too fancy.

The Felhounds on the other hand took a bit of practice. Getting used to the extra abilities required some pulls but then they too fell over.

We spent the rest of the evening experimenting with various approaches for dealing with Hasabel and feel confident she will fall soon. All in all not a bad first poke.

Well done, all!

As is our tradition with any new raid we jumped into Antorus on Normal difficulty for the first reset. We look at the sights, kek around, have some laughs, get lost and die in hillarious ways and offcourse kill everything! This has been our way for quite a while now and it helps alot with getting familiar with the raid before starting on Heroic.
Antorus was a mixed bag. Most of the encounters were really fun, others felt a bit underwhelming and then there was Eonar wich was just... what? The experience as whole was epic though and thats what counts. Looking foward to Heroic progression this coming reset.

Well done, all. Was alot of fun!
