Last night we put in our first hour of attempts into Algalon. Once we got past the “ohhs” and “ahhs” of the momentus occasion and the multitude of screenshots, we got to work.
The fight itself (which I’ll discuss once he’s dead) is very mechanical and purely based on execution. I really wish (something I discussed previously here) they didn’t make the hard mode boss “hard” due to the fact that you have a one hour timer. If you can learn to execute the transitions of the fight, it wouldn’t take you very long to make the kill. I would have much preferred a fight that was so complex and challenging that you could ram your head into the wall for hours upon hours and not kill him. That is what makes something hard, not a timer!
With time against us, we rushed through as many attempts as we could. After a solid hour of attempts and one minute left on our timer we decided to go back in and go for another attempt. While we don’t have enough time to make the kill before he departs, perhaps he won’t disappear if you engaged him right? WRONG! midway through our attempt he went passive and decided he was done playing with us (lol)
Algalon the Observer’s Ascend to the Heavens hits Vallen for 6910 Arcane.(712748 Overkill)
Overall a fun first day, our best attempts so far range in the 65% area after the first big bang but the healing definitely needs to get worked out as he is smashing our poor tanks into oblivion. 😦
