First week of ToS - 7/9HC!

First week of ToS being open and we managed 7/9 HC, something we are quite happy with. We went back to finnish of the maiden with the fondness for balls in an extra raid last night as we got her to 1% at the end of our thursday raid. We also spent some time on Avatar of Sargeras as we figured we might as well when we had already convened for an extra raid.

ToS so far looks interesting, nice gradual increase in difficulty, could have done with some teleports aroun the place but other than that so far so good :) Well done everyone!

For anyone interested in joining us we do have a few spots we could consider, contact Goonier, myself or one of the other officers for a chat if you think you would like to be in Fifth SIn.

Mythic Star Augur Etraeus!

Mythic Star Augur Etraeus was a truly fun experience, such a good boss on mythic compared to how it is on heroic and normal. We had some of our best raids in a row while working on this boss. The focus was right where it needed to be, without it feeling tiresome and like we were getting stuck, even after we were getting into the high 10s of attempts. I think it took us 101 goes or something along those lines to get it down, with several VERY close calls before finally we killed it just as the etire raid blew up, in what has to be one of our most fun boss kills! xD Well done everyone and thank you for an excellent raid, and for all the fun times in NH! Next week we move onwards to ToS!

Mythic Tichondrius downed!

In what has to be one of our finest raids in NH, and on our second evening of even attempting Tichondrius, we smacked him hard and he fell over dropping some nice shinies for us :) Well done everyone and thank you very much for a truly awesome raid! xD All in all I don't think we spent more than one raid evening on him in total in terms of time, and the progression was nice and steady from start to finish. Onwards to Starbro next!

Mythic Botanist Dead

We managed to kill Mythic Botanist last night. After a few set-up pulls we clicked and got it to < 10%. Then after a few more practice tries we got it down, a very satisfying kill. Fifth Sin is now 6/10 mythic in NH, pretty good for our 2-raid per week efforts. Well done to everyone who contributed to progress on this boss, particularly good work on refining tactics from our tanks Gwaycia and Maelas. Next target will be mythic Tichondrius.

Mythic Spellblade down!

Tonight we were in the zone again, so in no time in only 3 goes we smacked her down and stole all her stuff! Well done on a focused start to the raid everyone! :) The kill has been in range for a while now, all it took was for us to be rested and rdy and to work out the last details towards the end of the fight.


This fight for us has been plagued by various bugs to do with the souls, they tend to knock the tanks through walls and get stuck in bushes and that sort of thing, also lots of fun line of sight and our of range issues, primarily for the healers but also to some degree for the ranged dps I think. Beyond that it is also a demanding fight in terms of possitioning, and the majority of our prgression on this fight was learning to do the frost debuffs flawlessly. It did not help that for some of raids where we spent time on this boss we were a tad low on ranged dps. All in all considering the extra challengs we faced due to this I'd say we did quite alright on this boss, it took us a litle bit longer than anticipated truth be told, but even spending time on a boss attempting it with a disfavourable setup can teach you things :)

It is also worth noting that in the same raidevening we got Botanist to the point where we are alread looking at the finnishing touches, so he should follow shortly as long as we don't run into any unforseen problems. Tichondrius is next on the menu following Botanist, and then ofc onwards to StarBro.

killpic and video to follow once they are uploaded.
