Leothras the Blind is dead!

Well, we went to SSC last night and after just a couple of botched attempts downed Leo for the first time.

A fun fight indeed, and here are a few tips for you raiding feral druids out there...

1. Get Big Wigs! Timers are your friend. Run out and stop DPS 5 secs before whirlwinds and transitions.
2. If you don't get away in time... you can heal yourself through the bleed damage from the whirl. Use a healthstone, then use Healing Touch, Rejuv, Healing Touch, Etc... just make sure you are far enough back when you do this not to get agro. You only have to keep yourself up until the bleed effect wears off.
3. Be prepared to become the MT at any time. When Leo is in demon form you might lose your MT to inner demon. Also, at the end of the fight all hell can break lose and you might be tanking him between whirls if you are the last tanking option standing.
4. Equip your Idol of Terror instead of Everbloom. It will help on getting down your inner demon and will help in case you become the tank.

Here is the VIDEO. That is my big bear butt chasing him around at the end.

Loot Reaver down

We went into TK and downed Void Reaver on our 2nd try. This fight is really easy... hopefully we will have him on farm status for the T5 shoulder drops.

We also attempted Fathom-Lord Karathress this week but just once... killed 1 add before everything fell apart. I would think he will go down next within just a couple of tries.

I went ahead and spent some honor and badges and picked up some tanking upgrades...

Waistguard of the Great Beast
Vindicator's Leather Boots
Slikk's Cloak of Placation

My new raid buffed stats are pretty awesome with over 50% dodge, over 20K HP, and over 32K armor. If I gear up the Moroes' Lucky Pocket Watch and Badge of Tenacity and use them around the Idol of Terror proc that is a whole lot of time with well over 60% dodge.

Druid tip of the week...

When DPSing Void Reaver you have 2 choices. Stand in for the ground pound and hope a healer has time to get you to full health before the next one or stand at the edge of the hit box and back up a couple steps before each pound and take little to no damage the whole fight. This does gimp your DPS quite a bit but it is hard to DPS when you are dead. Talk to the raid leader and healers about what they expect from melee DPS.
