Heroic Ultraxion

February 29, 2012 13 comments

Ok….this fight is easy on paper.

For those who have passed this boss on Heroic…how do you get people to improve on their hitting heroic will in time….that is the issue holding us back. Hitting that damn button! Argh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We tell people to watch the cast bar, etc etc. Not sure what else out there can help people – besides baby sitting people.

Anyone else feel that Cata, more specifically Tiers 12 and 13, have been soul crushing?

Tier 11 – ooooo new raids! new gear! new bosses and 3 zones to playin!

Tier 12 – the raid environment does not feel epic, some of the boss fights were interesting, overall kind of too short as well.

Tier 13 – same raid size as Tier 12….with recycled environments….some wait…no interesting fights (well maybe spine).

I hate to admit it, I had more fun raiding in Wrath then I did in Cata. I cant quite put my finger on it but I guess I had something more to idenify with in killing the Lich King. Deathwing did nothing for me….sure he is a big bad evil dragon….but meh.

With MoP news coming out soon, I hope this will help brighten things up. But I really like the group of people our raid contains, if not for them I probably would cancel the account for WoW.

I feel like many others who have been playing MMOs for a while – you cant go back. I look back on FFXI kindly and wish in many ways MMOs were still old school. Where servers mattered and community mattered. I admit I like larger raids. But with recent times – convenience > old school things in my opinion. Companies are looking for their biggest gain and things like LFR, dungeon finder make it easier to get into MMOs. Smaller raids – lets face are easier to organize. Large raids are going to be a thing of ancient times.

Now in ToR….healing as a Bounty Hunter…I am not a real fan of it. It’s tool box for healing feels like it is lacking something. All it really has it direct heals, no real oh crap button to speak of. Slow cast heal, medium cast, and really freakin cast heal. Slow heal – no CD, medium heal – 9 sec CD, fast heal – 20+ sec. Besides that there is a AOE missle healing spell thingee…max targets it can hit is 3…..small puddle on the ground which is supposed to heal people much like a druids spell…but I dont think it works properly. And it also looks like bad on the ground lol. Gear grind in TOR just like it is in WoW, so its quite easy to get geared up.

Healing in ToR feels like healing at the behinning of Cata for a fresh 50. Leveling up a Sorc to heal as it…cause they get bubbles, and from what I can tell a more diverse healing selections. MIxture of direct heals and some HoTs (per Sorak – so take that with a grain of salt)

Best thing about lvling in ToR is the story telling for the class quests, love them! The dialogue for the normal quests….not so much blech.

After the Sorc I will work on an imperial agent i think, or maybe make some more jedi! The good side. Why couldn’t SR be jedi and not stinky imps…..

It’s been a while….

So it really has been a while. I guess I should get around to posting that 6th screenshot thing, but no SS here at work.

But in the MMO world:

WoW – is the same. Clearing DS easily in one night now. Starting to work on heroics slowly now that the TOR fever seems to have calmed down a hair I think. Morchok down, onto Ultraxion!

Lots of new info for MoP in the form of talent trees…..still can’t wait for some real info.

ToR – Jedi Consular is still 25. On the Sith side – Bounty Hunter finally hit 50! Popped open a few champion bags got an earpiece and some token, so bought an offhand healing gun? (healing gun lol) Got some upgrades running heroic Boarding Party and Foundry and a few epics off the AH. Healing in ToR….definitely needs some mouseover macros. Also….just like in WoW Cayle is go go go go lol! No time for breathing….

Anyways…..back to work!
