Last week I spent hours in Heroic Throne of the Tides, simply because none of those present had any idea what we were up against on heroic mode. In the end, by trying different tactics, looking up video's and discussing in party chat what went wrong and what could be improved, we cleared it and it was incredibly rewarding.Of course, I've also butted my head against the (then-impossible) third boss of Blackrock Caverns for about five hours before we all just decided to give up. The next time we ran it, the tank (guildie) had learned to handle the boss and his armor debuff properly, and it was completely doable (without the challenge vanishing completely).The best way to run these will always be with guildies, by the way. Last night we had tactics like "Turn and run when the tank dies and head for the exit" and the more elaborate "Have the Goblin Warlock rocket-jump into that pack of trash, then turn and run when the tank dies and head for the exit", and while they were expected failures, we had so much fun failing.

Urg that third boss in BRC ;_;. We did pretty much the same thing (butting our heads against it, I mean). I mean, it seems pretty logical to do it the same as regular, kind of, but it's actually pretty different.

Haha...the first heroic my guildies and I got was Throne. We thought, "Oh, good...this dungeon will probably be easy."BRC was the first one we successfully completed as a guild group, but even that didn't happen until last night. And we left Beauty alone, too...All and all, I'm having a damned blast.

Thankfully, third boss in BRC is skippable. I've never downed him -- only heroic boss I haven't beaten yet. (Nothing especially great on his loot table either.) Beauty is super easy if you have the right classes -- all of her pups are CC'able. Hibernate, Hex, Sheep + tremor totems. It was too easy -- felt like cheating. Then again, I've gotten that Resto Shammy geared out in full 346 gear now and I've moved onto my "main" holy paladin. I'm missing the CC and interrupt now that he's Holy Paladin's nearing heroic-level content.
