Guild still can't get past Elegon. 15-ish more wipes on it last night. *sigh*

No. Aren't you supposed to do steps 5 and 6 before doing step 7? Might end up with a weirdly-shaped piece of furniture if you put things together in the wrong order. :lol:

(Read: It _really_ feels like giving up if you go on. Yes, the Vizier is probably easier than Elegon, but it just seems wrong to skip stuff.)

Don't skip Elegon, just go do Zor'lok then come back to Elegon.

what she said
Zor and bladeloard are much easier mechanics wise and give you a chance to get some more loot to help with elegon's dps check (more gear = more damage output = orbs die faster = higher debuff in P3)

LFR..the new wing... /facepalm
first boss it was just figuring out the maze, which i kinda expected
issues started on second boss with getting a mage bad mouthing every one that was below him (as in everyone..) on dps chart and he "was on adds all day!"
finally got some healers that were awake and able to heal ppl, so melee lived long enough to have to go refresh mutation buff and surprise surprise surprise! melee suddenly jumped to 4-6 on damage done and dps..it was amazing

last boss, finally got a tank that could hold aggro on more than one mob and down the boss went with just 3 stacks of determination! (other 2 were 6 and 9)

What's the problem?

Do you mark each pillar and dps with a corresponding raid marker, so each know the adds they are supposed to kill? (You are 2 healing it?) Are you killing three waves of orbs?

Do you try to coordinate so that the pillars die around the same time (thereby reducing the number of adds that spawn)?

Do you solo tank the last burn phase with a paladin tank, with no one resetting stacks?

Those three things helped us get past him. With the marking, you can often see which dps struggles to burst down their orbs and so the tanks can help them.

Goddamnit. I spaced out while getting my coffee this morning and I put skim milk and fake sugar in my Irish Cream coffee instead of 18% fat milk and real sugar. THIS IS NOT THE WAY IT'S SUPPOSED TO TASTE.

Unflavoured coffee I generally have with just sugar (which a lot of people consider black). I went through the "nothing in my coffee" phase in my teens when I thought it meant I was tough. I'm over that now and can accept when I need sugar in my drink!

Salt is good on those too...

But coffee shouldn't need salt. Only that nasty Navy stuff needs it.

Nor should coffee be flavored, if it's good coffee, it doesn't need it.

I'll stand by my love of candy-coffee.

now, I can also drink it black (helpful for work-sites, conferences, etc.) - but won't if the choice is available. But I've never much taken the time to really 'get into' coffee either, though I have some friends that do personal blends that are pretty darned tasty with a splash of cream.

Bahh...

If any of you get out here to Blizzcon, I'll point you to a local store to buy the best italian dark-roast you've ever had, that will put you off your candy coffee for good. All it needs is some sugar.

I've taken my coffee black since the teens as well, but for me it was mostly a laziness factor than anything that pushed me to taking it as simple as possible.

I also worked in coffee for a few years back in those days and if you doctored your drip coffee, you didn't really get taken seriously among the coworkers.

I still don't really like lattes or anything. I'll do a mocha around christmas time just because they remind me of the holidays, but it's either a nice hot drip in cold weather, or iced drip black in the summertime.
