XT-002 Deconstructor, Kologarn, Auriaya, Hodir all defeated!

It was an exciting week in Ulduar Friday and Saturday. On Friday we got FL, Razorscale again, and then proceeded to kill XT-002 Deconstructor after about 2 1/2 hours of attempts. It was rough but we got him down. We aren’t taking screenshots of encounters considered easier. We moved on to Kologarn and got him down after a few attempts.

Saturday was just as successful. It didn’t seem like it would be at first! We were wiping over and over on Auriaya. The pull is very difficult, but once you got that down it’s just down to paying attention and surviving. Each time someone dies, the risk someone else will die goes up, and if you lose more than 5-6 people you’re gonna be toast, depending on her HP at that point.

Next, we moved on to Hodir. It’s a very easy fight and we had him down the 3rd attempt. Afterward, we killed the trash to Thorim, because he is supposed to be an easier fight as well. It didn’t go so well and we didn’t have much time left for the raid, so after the 4th wipe we called it. Basically half the raid goes down this hallway and half the raid stays in the center arena. I know the Arena groups had issues as well, but all I saw was the hallway group, and it was a mess! This mini-boss fires a slam down the hallway on one side or the other, and you have to move out of that. Then there are 2 sets of 3 mobs that have to be killed as you’re rotating back and forth. They also stun you. It wasn’t fun to say the least, we’ll be practicing more next week.
