Blast Furnace is down and we’re onto the 300+ pull monster boss, Blackhand. So this boss experienced some fairly hefty Phase 1 nerfs before we started progressing on it, and Phase 1 is probably the hardest phase as well. The other 2 phases are no joke though, and after 105 real pulls (we reset the encounter about 200 more times) we were ready for this boss to fall over. Big shout-outs to team healer as this fight is crazy heals intense, including Raum doing Phase 1 MC’s as well as healing, and Cale doing Phase 1 and 2 MC’s for all our pulls.
The whole team pulled this one together without a couple of our very geared and very competitive DPS being available for progression, and the folks who didn’t get the kill but put in 50+ attempts are to be commended as well.
So Blackhand is our final target, and we’re all preparing our collective anuses for the ~300 pulls of progression ahead of us.
—Fun fact, Blast Furnace is the new record holder for total wipes on a boss in this tier for Big Crits. The old record holder; Beast Lord Darmac, the very first boss we did on Mythic. l0l
