Minipost: Bad Big Bug Memories

TTGF is set to start working on Garalon tonight, and I can't help but shudder and think back to the night the second half of Heart of Fear LFR went live, and how utterly awful that fight was. (In fact, it was so wretched we wrote a From Draenor With Love strip about it.)

If you look at the picture above, that was one of our better attempts, and this was after Narci and I took over pheromone kiting duties. So many people died to the stomps and cleaves. So many. And I mean, our kiting wasn't perfect, but considering it was the first night we'd seen the fight, and considering the train wreck attempts we'd seen previously, we did a hell of a good job at dumping the pheromone pools on the outside...then a little closer in...then closer...etc. Eventually, we just ran out of room and died in hilariously agonizing fashion.

We did get it in the end, but man. Just looking at this picture gives me the chills. It was like Defile all over again! /twitch

    That's a lot more stuff in the center of the floor than we ever have. We try to get him closer to the edge of the room as we kite him around, and on ideal attempts the puddles are in a solid line around the outside.

    Then again, in our method one person is out of range of most of the raid at any given time, and we're always running right up against enrage. Your method is probably much better for putting fire on the boss.
