This post is overdue by two or three weeks, whoops!
So after our glorious defeat of Zorn, Toth, and their incredibly annoying cheerleader Murdok, we moved deeper into Denova, through mountains of trash (seriously, find me a gamer that enjoys a half-hour trash clear between bosses, go on, try) before encountering Firebrand and Stormcaller, the pair of battletanks.
Beating the tanks took us longer than many bosses, because they’re a mechanically complex fight with a lot to account for, and we’re still sticking with our no-spoilers approach to operations. That said, after testing various mechanics, refining our strat and perfecting our execution, the tanks died — that is, the battletanks died, not our tanks (although they died plenty too, I can tell you!).
After that we moved on through the trenches of Instant Sniper Death to the next boss, Colonel Vorgoth. Let’s face it, everyone loves Minesweeper, right?
Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of the kill shot yet, since I wasn’t in that night’s raid, but you can rest assured he died a glorious death.
Next on the agenda for us:
- Consolidate our progress on EC normal mode
- Defeat the as-yet-unseen Kephess
- Start on EC Hard Mode
- Expand to 16-mans
With that in mind, it’s time to mention that we’re recruiting again. We’re looking for people in all roles to expand our team to 16-mans. If you play in Aussie peak times and you’re on Dalborra, why not look us up? We’re friendly, and don’t bite!
And the last piece of news for the week: we’d like to welcome a new SWTOR officer, Kristakiss, to the fold. Please feel free to pester him for all your administrative needs!
