So, now that I’m properly awake.
Majordomo doesn’t seem as hard as I’d expect from the second-last boss of the tier. I hear Ragnaros is a nightmare – we didn’t pull him, since someone had a test today – but honestly, half the group we had was doing it on-sight and the rest had had two or three wipes after downing Alys earlier the week. We proceeded to take an hour and a half to drop him like an inconvenient politician.
Strat we used was to start in scorpion and stack the scythes to 11* before the first transition, then switch every 6/7 stack after that depending on how the healers were holding up. Healing team was two pallies and myself as a disc priest. Absorbs are insanely strong in this fight, and while I had a fair bit of overheal due to spamming PoH, I don’t think I’ve ever healed that well on a fight before. Pain Suppression will also save your tank’s backside. Twice.
So yeah, we’ve only downed this boss once but I figure it’s already a farm situation. The trouble is, Alys is not. Our guild is short on melee – as mentioned, I was dropped from progression so that they could use healers with interrupts. Even so, it’s this guild’s OMGWTF fight, where nothing wants to work properly and everyone is flailing hopelessly in the fire. I’m going to have to figure out some way of being useful on that fight if I ever want tier shoulders.
* Literally, not in the sense of “this boss’ damage goes up to 11!” – but then again, it kinda does.
