Got ya now, Garry!
As the flex kill happened, I wrote: "Normal will undoubtedly present a more challenging fight, but it can't be any harder than the stupid turtle, right? Right?!"
As it turns out... yes, it was much harder. A wipe total of 130+ makes it by far the most difficult time we had with a boss.
About a third of it was finding the right strategy for our play style. About a third of it was everyone getting accustomed to all the mechanics at the right time. And that final third was disconnects, strange aggro, some buggy timers, and a bit of downright bad luck.
But we persevered, and everyone put a tremendous amount of hard work into this!
Many players contributed beyond those actually part of the first kill, and we will be getting Garrosh kills for them! Cyradis, Foravin, Shaada, Skagerrak, Sytith, Tygrath, and Xiaojen will get their chance!
Delycaon, Ebonmorte, Krònòs, Mirenna, Omei, Prymusunum, Ravenbane, Robole, Shandralore and Welton
