The Emerald Nightmare is cleared on mythic! Thanks to everyone who helped with the kills, and we'll see you in Trial of Valor and Nighthold up ahead.
Legion raiding started with the Emerald Nightmare, and Aeon cleared the place.
Mythic raids are opening next week, and that's when the real fun starts. In the mean time, you can check out our Xavius kill here.
After 7.5 years on Earthen Ring Aeon has moved to a new server. Unfortunaty the ER low population and lack of recruits has made the move necessary. We hope to call Twilight's Hammer our new home for even more years and are eager to start the race for server first in Legion!
The first kill of Aeon back in 2008 (Kalecgos Sunwell Plateau)
And our last event on Earthen Ring (HFC achievement run)
The spirit of Winter Veil did its magic! Archimonde Mythic fell and his death marked the end of Hellfire Citadel and Warlords of Draenor!
I think that Mannoroth is the hardest fight of this tier and it took us quite a few wipes to bring him down. Still down it went and now we are against the final boss of the expansion!
Fire spawning bosses are always annoying, especially after the soul-crushing Firefighter. With some close percentage wipes we managed to kill the 11th boss of Hellfire Citadel. Only Mannoroth and Archimonde left now!
And another mythic boss dead! Velhari is a dps check, especially in phase 2, but with the customary "last pull of the night" down it went!
Fel Lord Zakuun is my favorite encounter of this tier, only because it is so fast (who wants a 15 minute fight anyway). Again it only took a few pulls before we got our first mythic kill.
Well after all the trouble Gorefiend gave us, Socrethar and Iskar seemed pretty easy. Only a few pulls and down they went!
A big step up from the previous 5 bosses and the first roadblock in Hellfire Citadel, it took quite a few wipes to finally bring him down. Looking forward to the next 3 easier bosses now!
Not really different from the heroic encounter, with some small adjustments we killed him in one night.
And another boss bites the dust!
Stack, spread, dodge, soak - this is the boss fight in a nutshell. Fun encounter that didn't prove much of a challenge.
We started our mythic progress and killed the first two bosses of the new instance.
15% down, 85% more to go!
And after quite a few wipes, most of them in phase 2, we killed mythic Blackhand tonight! A really class dependant encounter, but then again who doesn't want rogues, boomkins and hunters in their team?
Blackrock Foundry and tier 17 is finally over. Looking forward to Hellfire Citadel and whatever else patch 6.2 brings!
