Our guild is up to 3 downed in Normal DS, and it also represents my first time raid healing (Resto Shammy) in a current-content situation. Previously, I'd only healed on BoT, T4W, BH, and a whole boatload of 5 mans. That being said, my resto gear is very solid (gave the t12 helm token I got with Enhance to Resto spec for the t12 4-set)Morchok was cake - I like the "hide behind a pillar" mechanics, so I thought it was a fun warm-up.Yor'sahj the Unsleeping gave us a couple wipes, but wasn't too bad once you have the right priorities on killing the adds. A good chunk harder than Morchok, but nothing too bad. And I picked up a 397 dagger, joy.Zonozz was a whole different ballgame for us though. We spent our entire raid time last night working on him alone, and I would guess we wiped at least 6-8 times. The critical moment usually came for us in the 2nd ping-pong cycle. Specifically, after the 2nd bounce on the melee group - we did 1 holy priest on the range, my resto shammy and a holy pally on the melee/tank.After that second bounce on the melee group in the second cycle, everything seems to hit at once. He's throwing out Disrupting Shadows, which compounds with the 2 pingpong strikes on the deeps. Meanwhile, he's blasting the tank with Psychic Drain while hopped up on Focused Anger melee strikes. And finally, this is the moment melee group has to move out of the way of the ball so it can hit him. And this is the phase between the black, which we're already having to allocate our CD's to (side note, Spirit Link totem is god for the black phase)We finally downed him on our very last try of the night - looking forward to a change of pace with Hagara before getting rocked by UltraxionSuffice to say I'm not the one complaining about how easy the new raid is. Enjoying it, though!
