Aphorism goes 10m

Aphorism has converted it's 25man raiding team into two 10man teams, as the carrot from raiding 25man simply isn't big enough any more. Back in TBC, the 25man raiding size was applauded for making it easier to manage a guild and raiding team, and the 10man raids in WotLK were a great alternative for casual raiders. But now the lines between 10man and 25man are blurry and the only noticeable difference is that 10man is simply less raider inside the raid instance.

From here on though, we expect a higher quality of raiding and compete for server firsts again and hopefully this is the change, that will again yield just that. And in the meanwhile we hope for blizzard to make 25man more attractive in the future, so that it doesn't die out completely.

Baleroc HM down!

Without doubt the hardest fight before Ragnaros, I imagine many guilds look forward to the nerf of this baddie. With a fuckup tolerance near zero, this boss took us some tries of tweaking shard tanks and healing setup. Grats guys on the kill and now it's time to bang our heads against the wall on Ragnaros.

Majordomo Staghelm HM down!

Sadly we didn't try this pushover of a fight earlier, he died within an hour of the first try ever on him. Not much harder than Shannox to be honest!

Alysrazor HM down!

Who ordered their chicken well done?

Beth'tilac HM down!

The gluttonous she-spider didn't take us that many tries to kill, and after refining our tactics (aka not having her eat any spiderlings after descending to P2), we downed her after a handful tries.

Lord Rhyolith HM down!

Lord RNG: Shit boss is shit. We never got our usual 1% wipe but a 2% wipe earlier this week, would have to suffice. Onwards to the heroic spiderweb!

Normal mode cleared

So far we had only killed Ragnaros on 10man, so after getting Shannox HC down, we paid Ragnaros a visit and he gave us some fat loot, which included our 29th and 30th bow from Firelands. Blizzard is not holding back on ranged weapons this patch and soon we can gear up our social's hunter alts.

Shannox HM down!

Truly this is the Halfus of it's tier, a very easy fight and even many of the other normal modes are harder. Grats us on the easy 391 loot. We forgot to line up for a photo, as we were laughing our way to the next boss, so the a picture of the achievement will have to do.

Cho'gall HM down!

Cho'gall got his heads smashed in properly, after he had smashed our heads in enough. Tough encounter and a fight where individual performance is very important. We got him though and now the only surviving mate of Deathwing awaits!

Nefarian HM down!

Nefarian and his sister's Shadowflame has been extinguished for the last time and now awaits Deathwing's prodigal ex-wife Sinestra and her pet guard dog, Cho'gall. Good job Aphozoids and a certain kill, after the legendary 1% wipe.

Omnitron HM Down!

Dodging Nefarian's tricks wasn't hard and the Trons died after a handfull of tries. Onwards to Nefarian!

Monday, April 18, 2011

Twin Dragons down!

A surprisingly easy fight, as they died in just a few hours of tries. Finally a boss where 10k dps rogues are useful.

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Conclave of Windows HM down

These 3 djinn was a pain in the ass but they died nevertheless. Onwards to the next boss!

Magmaw HM down

After just one night of tries, this worm ate the dust (for good). Not that hard fight, all about execution. Grats to everyone who got shiny T11 heroic gloves.

Monday, March 21, 2011

Atramedes HM down!

One night with a new strategy and this fight was easily defeated.

Monday, March 14, 2011

Maloriak HM down

After a night with a 3%, 2%, 1% and then a 300k wipe, we finally got him down! Nefarian's incompetent minion is no more.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011

Chimaeron HM down

Once again after a 1% wipe, we got this mutated snake down. Maloriak & the Trons await!

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Halfus HM down

First night of tries, yet he still died. We quite fast had a few low % wipes but it's never a true Aphorism first kill without a 1% wipe first. Grats on the kill and the insane amount of loot!

Normal mode content cleared, Hardmodes await!

With Nefarian dead, it's time to focus on the hardmodes. Grats to those who were present on the kill and got shiny epics!
