Our biggest enemy in getting Horridon dead was in assembling the team to do the job. The Summer curse has struck, and every raid we would be missing a few key people. When we were finally able to put a decent strength team into the field, the dino gave it up.
As is often the case on heroic kills, the greatest obstacle on the night was not some new, dastardly mechanic, but getting everyone to focus up and avoid mistakes. There was still not a great deal of leeway for the first kill, but it was satisfying nonetheless.
Hopefully this opens a few eyes and sets us up for more accelerated progress.
PS – we killed Jin’Rokh ages ago but no-one thought to take a kill shot because, well, it was only Jin’Rokh. So here he is, from one of our more recent kills. Look everyone, dead Jin’Rokh!
And so we’re done with the normal modes. As befits an end boss, Lei Shen was one of the harder fights in the Throne of Thunder. Though, to be honest, not that hard. Our kill was completed with an amusingly awful use of heroism in the first transition that benefited precisely nobody. Genius!
There will be a video up soon, so you can watch our glorious defeat of the end boss and marvel at our brilliance. Now it’s on to heroic modes.
KILL VIDEO (I’ll embed it when I can figure out how to do that):
Council of Elders:
So the Thunder King is coming. Well, so are we! Deeprun Pest Control rides again into 5.2 , ready to take back our crown and dethrone Lei Shen. We are putting the team together right now, and look forward to some glorious victories in the weeks ahead!
