The Ice Man commeth

Last night we did Hodir on hardmode. Fun fight, very crazy towards the end but it left me feeling a bit frustrated. Whatever happened to bring the player not the class, whatever happened to the developers promise that guilds will need to bring more healers to Ulduar than they did to Naxx?

Our final raid make up consisted of 4 healers, 1 tank and 20 dps. A nice and balanced raid which really takes into account the composition of our guild….. . Which leads me to another point, the trash to Hodir is just as easily done with 1 tank and 4 healers. The zerg everything that moves mentality works just as well here as it did in Naxx. Yes, I realise its a guild choice thing, you could wait for however many weeks it takes before your dpsers can carry a more balanced raid, but that equally is not fair. Whichever way you look at it, someone is going to get left out/let down.

Two things did stand out from the blur that was the fight however:

1. As I’ve said before, hog those starlights for lovely fast prayer of healings.

2. Set up Grid to show Storm Cloud as a buff so that if you receive it as a healer, you can make sure you get close to dpsers fast.

Oh and Missy and Sissy Flamecuffs have to be the best named NPCs ever.
