We did it last night! I guess all it took was moving our Rag night to Tuesday. We were planning on calling it, but twice said “okay, one more pull.” In classic underdog style, that was when we killed him.
The night was fun even before a kill was entering our reach. On one pull, when we called a wipe I decided to trigger a trap.
For some reason, we had always had trouble on the transition phases with the adds. To be honest, I could never place what the problem was besides the obvious (adds hit the hammer and we died). Things went much better last night, and we were consistently getting past it once we changed our strategy a little. Someone stepped up with a new idea that ended up working well. Basically each person was given a designated number, and each add was numbered. Obviously these linked up. Point is, we ignored the concepts of “left” and “right” and just numbered the adds.
I don’t think we had ever seen the Living Meteors previously. We struggled a bit there for a while. Once we had four Living Meteors running around, it was hectic and strategy went out the window. However, in the end we triumphed and even earned Ragnar-O’s (totally without meaning to do so).
Some sweet loot dropped for us too, of course. Mushkin got Sulfuras, which is really awesome lore-wise in my opinion. It seems a bit smaller now though than when Ragnaros wielded it. Oh well. The priest/paladin/warlock head token dropped, and Harley won that. Lastly, and most importantly, Fingers of Incineration, nice new gloves, dropped for me!
Hopefully we can get this fiery jerk on farm!
