I know that I should want to do raiding “the hard way” and feel so accomplished when we actually kill the thing. I should.
However, there comes a point where you just don’t want to wipe anymore. I am to that point. I just want him dead and I don’t really care how we get there, so long as in the end, the boss is dead. Dead dead dead.
This weekend, we tried the infamous 1-tank method for Baleroc. It did not go well. Oh boy, did it not go well. The tank died within 2 minutes into the encounter, each time. With 2-tanks and 3-healers, at least we REACHED the enrage timer alive. This time, not so much.
I’m not disappointed in these nerfs. Maybe I would be upset with the nerfs if we were on the cusp of winning. But right now, it seems like it would be a long uphill battle. I remember wiping for weeks and weeks on Arthas. Maybe 2 months. It was soul-killing. (I think, in the end, it was somewhere around 80 wipes before the kill, and the kill did come after the nerf.)
No, I am awaiting the nerfs with glee. If I had to pick the lesser of two evils, I’m going to say that I’d rather take a win on a silver platter than continue to be demoralized.
