"Okay folks. We're going to try this one more time, here's what we're going to try a little different."Those words have been uttered before our first kill in 3 of the bosses in Hyjal, Najentus and Leotheras.They have been uttered before 7 or 8 wipes as well.You can feel the mood in the air, a mood of "this isn't going to work." If you can't get a positive notion to gel out of that, one of utter determination, you will not get a kill. Hearing that this is your last chance to make this right, your last attempt to break through and see new sparklies at your feet, sometimes is enough to get everyone over the hump.Otherwise, it is a welcome relief.A good raid leader can feel when the time to say those words is. There is no definitive time to do it. You just know from the lack of comments on vent, the feeling of frustration, and knowing your people's level of play. Some of the best raiders I have known have beat their heads on a boss for 3 or 4 days, at 2-3 hours a night on the same boss because they wanted her down. (Looking at you Vashj) Those same raiders have been ready to never see a boss after 3 attempts because the boss is frustrating and not worth it to them.
