Tyranny does Firelands, Week 1: 7 for 7 in 5!



What a week! As of 11:59 on July 3rd, we're 7/7 Normal Mode during this, the very first week of Firelands! Great job on Ragnaros (US #44 on 25 man)Tyranny, as well as the prior 6 bosses. We really brought it this week, as this was our first, real test of new content since the March reform, and the results have been stunning! Rag wasn't too difficult, the trickiest thing being figuring out how to consistently get the sons of flame down. The fight is very fun, but very "scheduled". Nonetheless, phase 3 is extremely hectic with  house-sized meteors flying around, but we nailed that to near perfection in just 2 attempts. Check out the video of it here (Rogue PoV, thanks Bagg!):


Before we got there though, we had a very special raid on Friday. We normally don't do Friday raids, but with the 4th this Monday, and knowing we would want to give ourselves a full night on Rag just in case, we had to get Majordomo out of the way. We were prepared to kill him on 25 man if necessary, but reflective of how unbelievably awesome and motivated Tyranny is, we got a 30 person turn out on less than 24 hours notice. And sure enough, Majordomo ate dirt. And then we put out all the fires he started, our own way.




But before Majordomo, we had Baleroc to deal with on Thursday. He is one of the most fun fights of the tier thus far, and a demanding healing encounter. But our execution was to perfection with zero deaths and in about 2 hours of work. We spent half the time sorting out crystal coverage, and half the time sorting healing, and in the last 20 minutes, it came together very nicely. Great job Tyranny! You can put your TI-83s away.




Unfinished from our Wednesday raid was Alysrazor. This is one of the most fun and hectic fights in the tier in my view, but we walked away with it with a very definitive win. Honestly, the fight is all about killing the chickens and dodging tornadoes. To do both, we brought in a man from the midwest who knows more about that than anyone! Alysrazor was the toughest of the first four, but some realizations we came through after we killed it should significantly ease the "leftover chickens" problem.




So that's week one, the end of our first real test. On Tuesday, we had a singular goal: kill Ragnaros before the reset, and given the circumstances (summer vacations, the 4th of July being on a Monday this year and a release week of new content), it could have been a disaster. Instead, the guild showed up, played hard, and had an incredibly impressive and memorable week. Everyone saw a lot of new bosses, gear was widely distributed, and people really came prepared, serious and focused. Putting together 7 new fights in one week when you had no PTR experience (due to the rebuild) is a tough thing to do, but through a lot of hard work by every member of Tyranny, and a focused work ethic, we're now entering Heroic Firelands next week the US 44th 25 man guild. That's something to be proud of. This isn't the end, but the beginning!


But that ain't all! Our videos are finally done! Well they've been on our Youtube page for a couple of weeks, but this is the public release. We're really proud of them (as always check out our youtube page by clicking on Media on the top bar.
