Last night, we went back to SSC to test our mettle against Leotheras the Blind. As per our guild usual on first boss encounters, we're total buffoons for the first 70% of the tries and then get progressivly better in the last 30% of tries. I guess it just takes us a while to get in the groove when learning a new event...you know...have to go through all those typical (and not so typical) mistakes to see what works. But, after 3.5 hours, we finally knocked him into the dark unknown! Not that he can see the difference. ;p
Since we had 3 prot tanks in the raid, I was kitty for the fight. And I have to say, it's a rather frustrating fight for melee. With the whirlwind phase and having to hold off damage until a warrior or, for demon phase, warlock has aggro, I felt like I spent more time running away and to Leo than shredding him. /bleh
As I said, we worked on him pretty much all evening...with one trash reclear. But, even though it seemed to take us longer to get it figured out with Leo than it did for Hydross and Lurker, I still think it's good that we were able to kill him on our first evening of working on him.
The goodies he dropped were; Gloves of the Vanquished Champion which went to Ledde, my favorite Innervatee, Gloves of the Vanquished Defender went to Maulmorr, Baklor got both the Girdle of the Invulnerable and Plans: Boots of the Protector. Grats all!!!!
Ok...tried to 'type' Braille using spaces and asteriks, but blogger sporked it all up. So, rather than making you look at a little starry group of asteriks and 'guess' what I tried to type in Braille, I'll have you guess what these two lines are from for your points. 10, as per usual.
