This past Sunday—just a week after Imonar fell to Shroud’s raiders—the team claimed another victory, this time over Kin’garoth.
The fight added a new mechanic of which add to kill last during each intermission, as this would then decide which ability of Kin’garoth’s would become empowered. We decided to primarily kill the red decimator add, as this ability was not too tough to deal with, as it merely required spreading out and avoiding getting hit by players targeted with decimation.
Killing the same add last multiple times over the fight added a stacking 25% increased damage buff on the boss, in addition to empowering abilities, making the fight more difficult. Because of this, we swapped the order of the adds we killed on the third set.
The fight was fairly straightforward and similar to its heroic counterpart, but killing adds quickly was far more important than it was on heroic. Apart from that, avoiding balls and letting tanks soak them when needed was probably the only mechanic we struggled with, but considering how quickly we killed the boss (just under two raid days), we actually did not struggle much at all.
Congratulations to everyone on a second progression kill in a week’s time! Next up is Varimathras. Looking forward to getting some solid progression time on this boss.
