We have been having a few attempts at Sar 3d, I lost count on our most recent attempt but from 8-11.30 we were getting there slowely, Just not enough.
Wipe count total is over 60 + now.
I’ve voiced some things I think might help, and the officers have been knocking their heads together for a way to do this. But Its not just one thing.
I think my brain got fried at try 25ish tonite. I know it got fried because I died in a Tsunami.
*mumbles to the people calling her scrub Hey! you try doing the right thing, and being hypyer attentive 24 times over 3.5 hours only dying after the tanks and healers, and stuffing up once and it just clipped me
Its been a learning curve, everyone has had lots of practise on surviving the Tsunami and staying out of Fissures. But our total wipe count is climbing
Between Disconnects, lag spikes, mistakes, new people every raid, and different tactics we just aren’t getting it. We can get to the 2nd drake, and the last 10 times we had him either almost dead, or dead, but only had enough people alive to get into the portal for the 3rd drake once. Its that period that all hell is going loose.
I don’t think beyond not dying in any Tsunamis ( even when wipes are called for the sake of keeping clean stats) There isn’t much more I can do differently.
We are trying again on Monday night. We want this. We want to be sucessful, our realm rating is suffering because we haven’t done it yet. It’s silly that enough things don’t work to get it done.
What would I do if it were me looking at how to improve?
Graph on everysingle person when they died, and what killed them to start.
I know sheer blunt determination might work in some cases, and if we had the luxory of swapping out people who were underperforming, then maybe we would do better. But we don’t.
Nor do I want to give up, Its a challange to be the best you can be 25 times in a row, but its getting repetitive.
This is my brain during Sarth 3d
Run to your spot. Sheild ( to aborb SWD damage) . SWD on way to build up one stack of shadow weaving. Make sure Tank has moved him over to avoid the tail. Cast Vampiric embrace while running. Stop at spot. Mindflay Mindflay for the next 4 stacks of Shadow weaving. Start Spell rotation. Watch Drake timer, and Flame wall timer - DPS Sarth untill Drake 1 becomes targetable. DPS Drake 1 as hard as possible while Avoiding 1st Flame wave, “Run away little girl” Avoid fissures, and stupid adds. Kill Drake 1 . Dps down all whelps, and Blazes – Kill Drake 2 ……………….. x 24
Ad lib in some spots to include.
Avoid grouping too close so you don’t get clipped/can’t see the fissure.
Don’t Dps while standing in a pack of mobs
Don’t stand next to person whos /s macro hides half your screen
Keep VE up where possible, if only to give yourself that extra healing
Move when you get hit by a fireball or the damage will get worse.
Don’t get to close to Sarths tail no matter how confusing it all gets least you get stunned.
Stay out of Drake 2 and 3′s breath while your trying to avoid being hit by massive flame beasts, and agro dumping so the little adds don’t hit you.
Don’t move too far to a safe spot one wave or you are out of range to cast or move to the next one in time.
The Dance is so much more simplier. The only thing that goes through my brain on Heigan slime is.
“Move to where the slime waves was.” That is all.
I love that its complicated. But I think I am beyond learning anything new. We just need everyone to be at their peak . Just once. One day we will get it. Maybe.
