Catching up!

Sorry for my unannounced hiatus, but the last few weeks have been a bit hectic and I’ve been in and out of town quite a bit due to good ole ‘real life’ involvement!  At any rate, I’m back and time to get rolling on the blog again!

First a little post about me and my guild’s current progression.  It’s been a while since I made a progression post, but back in January I posted we had downed Hydross. Since that post, we have moved on to off Morogrimm, Karathress and Leotheras, and have had several attempts on Vashj, but haven’t managed to down her yet.  We’ve gotten her into phase 3 a couple of times, but haven’t closed the deal yet.

It seems the hardest part for us in the Vashj encounter are the random elements.  The spawning of the Elite Naga and the Striders have been problematic.  We can’t seem to be consistent in picking them up before they manage to walk over and one shot a healer.

We are working on remedying this though by having more than one designated strider kiter and having a paladin healer near a tank drawing heal aggro for the Naga to pull them into a predefined location.

Our goal is to down Vashj before 2.4 goes live, but I don’t know if that will happen or not.  2.4 is right around the corner, possibly as soon as this Tuesday so who knows if we will manage it or not.

If your guild has no trouble with Vashj, care to give any pointers on how you manage the spawns to make sure they don’t go whack someone?
