After getting two heroic bosses last week, team Kaels killed those bosses again this week and continued our work on heroic Galakras. Aside from increased health and damage to the raid, the only mechanical change on heroic is an additional friendly NPC who is in charge of unlocking and opening the tower doors. Unfortunately for the poor guy, he is rather quickly targeted by a nasty grunt that has to be killed rapidly.
After tweaking our strategy a touch in the middle of the evening tonight, we started successfully dealing with both towers. The last phase (when Galakras lands and the raid has to burn him) was fairly brutal. Lots of fire. Lots of damage. We killed him by the skin of our teeth. We placed our last DoTs on him, and as Galakras finally expired, the only person left alive was Ashblade. So is he on farm now? Sure, why not. Up next: Protectors.
