Tonight I ran with my realm’s second best 25man progression guild in a 10man Ulduar.
In my current guild, the only hard-mode on 10man that we’ve attempted is XT-002 Deconstructor’s Heartbreaker. The guild I’m running with has completed the 10man Ulduar Meta Achievement.
So I read up on all hardmodes up to and including Mimiron. I’m glad I did because they do all the 10man bosses on hardmode.
I got what seems like half my own meta achievement completed. I had only done two towers on Flame Leviathan but now I have all these achievements from tonight: [Nuked from Orbit], [Orbit-uary], [Siffed], [Lose Your Illusion], [Heartbreaker], [I Could Say That This Cache Was Rare].
After tonight, I see why Affliction is not a popular choice for hardmodes. The burst damage is just not there so I’ll need to use Destruction for some of the encounters. My warlock has the dual-spec but I rarely use my secondary which is currently Destruction. I’ll tweak it some so I can use it in a raid as well as practice with it outside of raid.
