Countdown (to Insanity)

I didn't post anything on the Firelands nerfs when they came out because it really seemed like a non-issue to me. My group was only 2/7 in heroics at the time, and  getting Lord I-Can't-Step-On-Volcanoes seemed more luck than anything else. We were about to hit a wall.

Then nerfs came  and we got up to 5/7 in one week. Hint they were too easy? Maybe. Alysrazor, Domo, and Beth gave us a bit of a hard time; but, we adjusted our strategy, tried again, and got them a couple times later. Sure they'd been 'dumbed down,' but it was nice to be able to see the fights and make progress on them.

Enter Heroic Baelroc. 22 attempts on him tonight. The level of confusion in our raid may have killed some of us. Thank goodness none of us were playing in the same room. Bodily harm could have resulted after that one melee dragged tormented through all of us. Or the healer ran into melee, got tormented, then ran back out. Or countdown targeted both channelers, as they stared helplessly at each other, unmoving.

I was frustrated at first, but I know we'll get him eventually. The main point of this little post? THANK YOU BLIZZ FOR NERFS! If this is what all of the fights would have been like pre-nerf, I'm pretty sure I would have snapped and murdered my guild. You'd see it in the morning news,"girl loses it, stabs guildies, screaming 'tormented take the crystal! NO THE OTHER CRYSTAL!!' ".
