My guild went back into Firelands last night (with a new tank and a pug hunter) and managed to down Alysrazor. And it only took us 5 tries! Our big problems were our flying dps weren't comfortable flying and dpsing at the same time, and the cyclones in phase 2 were kicking my fellow healer's ass. However, she managed to live through that phase when her husband told her to just follow him and he'd lead her around.
Firebirdie dropped my new boots (yay) and a dagger that our pug hunter took (what?). And with that upgrade, I only have 2 pieces that are not 365 or higher. (My pants and a ring.)
Anyway. We moved onto Baleroc and beat against him for 3 tries before we had to call it. The healers (all two of us) couldn't figure it out at first. However, I've done some reading now (I was not prepared for that boss last night. Usually we take a short break after a kill but we just moved right along and the husband tried to explain but he didn't explain what the healers have to do, probably because he didn't care.) and I know that we need to rotate. My shaman buddy kept healing the tank because his health kept dropping. And I kept healing the DPS because THEIR health was dropping, and then I would throw a heal onto the tank. It was all messy.
I"m going to talk to my healing buddy tonight and see how we want to approach this. I was really bummed that my hots won't help stack the buff I need. Dude. Way to gimp me! Ugh.
Anyway. I have a busy day ahead of me. I'd best get moving!!
