Last night was a good night. Absolution downed Putricide after a Tuesday night raid which didn't even see us get him into the third phase. However, last night, with a few tweaks to the line up things were going well. It took a few tries to get everyone woken up but after that, things were going well. Really, really well. We were hitting Phase 2 after the first green slime went down. Raid damage was minimalised to hell and everyone's dps was brilliant.
However, 3 times in a row we got (as our hunter for the evening so 'elegantly' put it) the definintion of a kick in the balls. Wipes on 4%, 3% and 0.9%. This guy is one tough cookie. He's the equivalent of putting a Maryland cookie in a freezer.
After out 10 minute break, we came back and killed him. It wasn't pretty, it wasn't stylish and as far as kills go it was like a drunken brawl outside a club, were both parties get fucked up but one less so. Our tanks were the only one's left alive - one of them had 256hp when he was killed. This time it was Putricide who got his scrotum introduced to our raids trainers.
So this first part, is basically just a big shout out to the guys at Absolution. Thanks for the fun, thanks for the positive attitudes and thanks for the banter on Mumble. For the first time in a long while I've enjoyed playing my rogue. I've missed it a lot <3
