I KNOW! You are thinking, why are there so many fucking kittens lately Xeo?
Well, ya see… I like having pictures on the blog. I think its more interesting to at least have some sort of eye catcher or something interesting. Lately, I’ve found kittens to be amazingly useful. They do all sorts of crazy shit and have made for great openers. I’ll try to space them out a bit more though so it isn’t quite so kitten heavy.
This week, Lord Jaraxxus Yawn was unlocked. I recently read an article (soon as I find it I’ll link it) that was talking about the releasing of bosses once a week to slowly introduce the populace and how effective it was with Sunwell. The problem with Coliseum though is that the bosses aren’t difficult. We spent more time learning Beasts of Northrend the first time (last Saturday) than we did killing them this week and learning Lord Yawn.
In fact, I’m not even sure if I’ll have a strategy for this guy… it would read something like… after killing the northrend beasts a gnome will appear and give you lewtz.
The fight really was that easy I’m sad to say.
The positives for the fight.
Lord Jaraxxus has several different abilities that you have to contend with. The great thing is that it isn’t 15 different abilities one person has to deal with (cept maybe the healers). After the fight Shiningstar commented on how awesome it would be to do the fight as a DPS… that way you could actual see WTF was going on. My point though is that there is a lot of little stuff going on that gives everyone a chance to do something. There’s stuff to cure and things to dispel / spell steal and adds for OTs to pickup and get killed. If you missed it, there is a metric fuckton of things to heal to.
The fight is easy, no doubt about it… but I do think it was fun (from a healer perspective anyway).
Here’s to hoping the faction champions are as fun.
