Finally, some new content. As with Naxxramas almost two years ago, it's exciting to see Blizzard demonstrating a real understanding of the limits of high-end raiders, along with a willingness to push players to those limits. I suspect that what we've seen so far is just the beginning, and the steady progression and variety moving from Kalecgos to Brutallus to Felmyst bodes well for what is less well-known ahead. Looking forward to it.
Speaking of tightly-tuned fights, allow me to add my voice to the chorus asking for Brutallus to remain as he now stands. He is the essence of a "gear check" and changing him even a little would defeat the purpose of the fight. We did him with a completely ordinary raid composition (no stacking -- exactly the same sort of raid makeup we've routinely taken through BT and other zones), and in fact the only real difference between our series of single-digit wipes yesterday and our ten-seconds-before-berserk kill tonight was that we'd been trying to "stack" yesterday instead of running with a more natural setup to which we've been accustomed for a year now. Congrats and thanks to our hunters for defying the huntard reputation that plagues the class, our healers for a fantastic job on a stressful fight, and all the rest.
First off...huge grats on the kill, and best of luck on all future progression.
Side question - I'm a newbie raiding priest (shadow) and was curious about your WWS result. As far as I can tell your sole shadow priest ended up 15th on the dps charts (and third last overall).
Now I know that spriest role in raids is not a pure DPS role, but really I thought they managed to maintain at least top 10 in a 25 man.
Could someone share a few thoughts on this topic? Please note that I myself have no experience on this fight (boss resists/abilities/etc) but I assume by the 100% dps time stat that the priest was at least doing some form of damage for most of the fight.
