Leo's Dead Baby.

Last run of the reset had < Fire and Blood > back in SSC. We headed straight to Leo for our first look at him as a guild. It was a little bit sloppy but we got him down. Sure half the raid was dead, but a win's a win. I think we got one of each of the glove tokens and Coral Barbed Shoulderpads We moved on to Karathress and it took us a couple of tries to get the pull right. That's really the toughest part of that fight. Karathress dropped Fathom-Brooch of the Tidewalker Neither of the resto Shamans wanted it. The lack of +dmg/healing as well as no on use ability does make it seem unappealing but still the mana regen off of it seems really nice. A 15% proc rate with a 45 sec CD should still yield over 1ppm. At 1ppm its about 30 mp5. Looks like I'll need to do a bit more research into this and make sure if it drops again it doesn't get sharded. He also dropped 2 Champion and 1 Hero token. No chest for me.

Then we moved on to Vashj. This was my first look at her. Its a crazy fight. We got through Phase one just fine but Phase two was a mess. We got in three tries and didn't manage to get our coordination down enough to get her to phase 3. I have every confidence that we will get her soon though.

Grats on the new boss downings.

That Shaman trinket must be nuts - my mage still wears his mark of defiance, it makes a huge difference in his mana pool, and it only procs for half of what the Fathom-Brooch does. Sucks that it got sharded, maybe people didn't realize it works on heals too and thought it was Ele gear? (It must be nice to be an Ele Shammy, if you can actually get groups, you're going to get loot - I've seen the Sunwell Ele Shammy Engineering goggle pattern up on the AH several times on my Alliance server, cause the guilds that are in Sunwell apparently don't raid with any.)
