This week was a great week in progression for team Kaels. We killed three new bosses this week, including the one pictured above, the final boss in Heart of Fear, Grand Empress Shek'zeer. This is a three phase fight. Phase 1 is fairly straightforward, largely involving burning the boss down while attempting to manage "sonic fields" she places on the ground. In phase 2, she "retreats" and the raid has to essentially split into two mini 5-person raids to deal with adds she summons. Phase 2 seems to be the most difficult part, and it ends either when the six Set'thik Windblade adds die or after a set amount of time. She retreats and summons adds for Phase 2 every 150 seconds, and as such, phases 1 and 2 will alternate until the raid pushes her into phase 3, which starts when her health reaches 30%. The goal is to have only one of the Phase 2 add situation to deal with. In phase 3, she does a *lot* of raid-wide AoE, and she also occasionally places a nasty fear on a raid member. The fear ticks for some mean damage, and seems to last forever. She also does a cone damage effect that covers around 1/3 of the floor in front of you. She's not very nice is what I'm trying to say, and I'm glad she's dead. I'll also note that we avenged that poor Klaxxi dude she killed. Up next: Terrace!!
