Mind Flayers downed Rotface

On saturday our guild downed Rotface at last.

We first downed the weekly malygos on eight players for some emblems and the achievement before heading to ICC for a late start (about 22:30) with the aid of two pug players. One 5100 gs alt (shammy enhanc./resto)  to a competent heroic mode ICC player and a random 4950 gs shadow priest.

No clinical kills this week either, but one shots of all lower spire bosses as well as festergut. Fielding duo druids gives a raid some room for failure as combat rezzes are quite powerful tools when hickups occur. 🙂

We then had a very good 1st try on Rotface but wiping on about 40% or something on some obscure reason when the blob tank died for some reason.

Just as we stood ready for our 2nd pull on Rotface we noticed that our mage had used invisibility to save some repair costs on the wipe a few minutes earlier he had manage to have gotten both the orange and green slime stains and thus elegible for completion of the weekly ICC raid quest which did consist of “one-shotting” either festergut or rotface after each other.  When the mage talked to the quest giver NPC the whole raid got the quest completed and was awarded five extra emblems and one was lucky enough to gain the ilvl264 plate dps shoulders that were given to our retribution pala “for dkp”.

On the fourth (or fifth) try when then downed Rotface with a two tank (warr + pala) and two healer (druid + shammy) strategy. The loot was a bit booring though as it went to off spec and even to our pug guest dps.

We now need to decide on where to head on the next raid into ICC. Should we go for Putricide who seems to be very hard, at least if you look at the success rate on the top guilds  in the the heroic ICC race. Perhaps it will be easier to go for any of the other wings instead.
