This past Thursday, Shroud’s raid team took down mythic Star Augur Etraeus, netting us our eighth kill in the Nighthold.
The fight itself was not very difficult, but certain aspects gave us some trouble throughout progression. One of the biggest was grand conjunction and accidentally causing explosions. We would initially panic and run into each other, even though we had a great deal of time to find a partner and remove the debuff. It took us a bit, but we eventually got into a rhythm and started very rarely having collisions.
Another issue was a dps one, trying to get through the fel phase with only one fel nova because the second one would almost always kill us. We lusted in that phase to get past it, but we had to have the right group to do so. Any deaths or low dps would cause us to get a second nova and wipe.
The other couple issues we had were in the last phase. One was killing the big adds before they got off more than one explosion and the other was moving to a safe spot before world-devouring force went off. Once we made sure the adds were dying quickly enough, it was merely a matter of having people call out what markers were safe to move to in advance so that we would be able to avoid getting one-shot.
In the end, after about 75 attempts and only a few raid nights, the boss went down and we were victorious.
With only three weeks before Tomb opens, we’re looking to push Elisande hard and hopefully grab a kill before the next tier begins.
