After clearing the other four encounters leading up to Anub, we one-shotted the big bug and collected our loots. [Call of the Crusade (25 player)]
The raid moved on to Ulduar for our Algalon hour of the week. We came close but no kill this raid lockout. I blame myself for some of the failure from my lack of experience with the encounter.
A friend and fellow guildie of mine is always out looking for old world bosses like Doom Lord Kazzak & Doomwalker.
Why might you ask? So he can 2-4 man them for the gold and epic BoEs they drop.
Well, I joined him for a Magtheridon gold run. Yeah — Mag is not a world boss, but he’ll do!
We originally tried this with his Shaman Healer, our Paladin Tank friend and my Warlock for a 3-man attempt. It was a little messy, so I switched to my DeathKnight alt — he needed the achievement anyways. Even with my plate wearing / warlock wannabe skills, it was not enough but just barely.
So we pulled in another friend, a Boomkin to help me DPS the Channelers down on the fight (which I also had to pull out of the group from our tank and hold as we kill — must interrupt the heals!) After he joined it went much smoother and we finished off the last two Channelers as he broke his chains and entered the next phase. Once the Channelers are down, the fight is a cakewalk to complete — what would have wiped us at 70 only tickles now.
