ZA obersvation

Postby honorshammer » Wed Nov 14, 2007 7:14 am

One of the most fun things about ZA is it's so new there aren't dozen of sites with perfect strats and videos and raid layout diagrams.

Each pull we had to think and strategize our way through not really knowing what was coming at us.

That was fun. The 60g repair bill was a bit tough to swallow, but man I haven't had fun like that in a long time.

I concur with this it was a blast last night.

:( yeah my frames dropped from 60 to about 46-50, and I am not sure why.

yep, we had one of the best nights we've had in a long time last night in ZA. Just a ton of fun. Chatting, figuring out the pulls (damn those stupid drum beater guys on the way to that dragonhawk boss), and just exploring. We actually got lost two times looking for a boss haha. Excellent fun!!!

QFT...it's not too bad, but the Dragonhawk trash is definitely the most annoying (through the first 4 bosses at least, which is what I've seen). It doesn't help when you have people that can't understand "don't run back by yourself" after a wipe :P

concur


except we have this one guy.. we'll discuss pulls and strats..."ok, ready? lets go"... this guy says hold on, and proceeds to outline the whole strat again. Repeat this process ad infinitum, lol... it was a long night.

double QFT. This happened like 3 times before people realized we need to go as a group. At first we figured the summoning was just part of the pull till we realized it never ended. We left the guy up while we took out adds. hahah. Once you figure them out it's easy but it was pretty funny when we were sitting there killing one set and up behind us comes running another guy beating the drum and repeat that cycle like 5 times. We were cracking up... when will the insanity end???

We didn't make it past the warbringers to even try Nalorakk, but it was tons of fun anyway. I've been so used to Kara it's weird being able to sheep in a raid. And the surprise is simply awesome; "WTF, he's immune to everything? Oh, someone smack that damn totem," etc.

I'm looking forward to trying again this weekend with a group that can actually clear Karazhan and doesn't have healers that are half asleep.

The scouts before dragonhawk were certainly annoying but once we got a good stun rotation going, it was no big deal. Plus you can skip like half the trash leading up to that boss. I found the trash leading to lynx boss to be the stupidest. We cleared stuff that wasn't required so it ended up taking forever to clear to him. First night in and we got 5/6 down, I'm pretty happy about that.

My guild had lots of FPS issues in our SSC raid on Tuesday, but last night in ZA I didn't hear about any problems. One of my guildies would log between trash pulls and disable/enable addons until he found the problem - in his case it turned out to be Bongos.

I don't use Bongos, but I had a really horrible framerate during Hydross. I turned off Spectral Lighting, and that seemed to help (granted, this would be based on your video card (I have a Radeon 9800 XT I think)).

So, update your addons and mess with your video settings, that might help.

Appreciated, however, I found out the problem, and yes, its the Bongos! Untick the option "show casted buffs and debuffs", then its fixed!
