Wow, Lady Deathwhisper sucks. Wiped on her for five and a half hours this week, but she’s down and that gave most of us in the raid the Heroic: Storming the Citadel achievement.
Went up, did Airship on heroic. Easymode.
And then we faced Deathbringer Saurfang. Without a third holy paladin.
Never, ever, ever underestimate how difficult this encounter is without a third holy paladin for the extra two marks you’re bound to get.
Pop quiz, hotshots! I would love to know how you would have allocated the resources for a kill. Assume that one holy paladin can handle two Marks of the Fallen Champion and that any other healer can handle just one.
Here’s what the comp looked like:
2x Holy Paladin, 2x Priests (both can be holy or disc), 1x Resto Shaman, 1x Resto Druid
Take that composition, assume six Marks of the Fallen Champion and come up with a viable healing strategy without knowing anything else about the abilities of the healers involved.
I’ll post how I (almost!) did it later on. We probably would have won, had it not been for a hunter’s disconnection (and the RL’s subsequent “accidental” turning off of the 10% buff!).
It’s completely different to 3 holy paladins in the raid, though. Like, holy crap, man, SO much harder.
