It's been too long since we did one of these... far too long.

Summer was a bit tough for us, having key classes go out for prolonged periods of time that hindered our BH progression. Likewise Archi Heroic saw us on the cusp of a kill just before all our healers decided to leave for vacation at differing points of time.

Luckily next week we had rings, and actually 5 healers. A messy one shot but a one shot nonetheless.

With that done we could focus back on Mythic; only 20 raid frames seemed small again after all the Flex content. Once we decided to stop eating Barrages to the face, he too fell:

Don't call my name...

Wednesday saw a heartbreaking 700k HP wipe on the last pull, something like 0.5% left. We had an hour on Thursday and, in what may have been the most impressively efficient use of an hour we've done all expansion, killed him relatively smoothly.

After months of organizing disconnects and unforgiving tuning, our FF14 crew finally managed to beat the expansion and defeat Bahamut Prime. Finally done, learning 13 minute encounters with 5 phases can suck a dick.


Patty's so damn cute. Now Book/Patty/JC/Wolves/Killa can rejoin us in WoW, right? 8)

This is not late, this is the news.

Under the patronage of Imperator.Palin.Divi.Filius.Sollicita. Spike Flail is proud to present a not late update on the the campaign being fought in BRF. Our heroes likely intoxicated have pushed the enemy back in their own territory a strong foothold has been established and plans are being drawn up for the final battles of this war. On a side note it is entirely possible I let the website time out 4 times not once saving my work.

Hans'gar & Franzok

Striking deep into the heart of corporate Black rock. Our brave warriors held together with negative reinforcement moved through the grill of torment. Mythic middle management monsters muster massive meteors making masterful movement monumentally more meaningful. The burger bosses prove to be little challenge and quickly fall.


Spike flails efforts were captured for all to see but BE WARNED! Its, well lets say a chore to listen to. Because of this I have come up with an Enhanced Edition for all to see

Flamebender Ka'Graz

Wolf woman of the foundry will make her rounds no more. This fight looks pretty boring to watch fire, dogs boss. This is one of those fights you could do one handed and have a beer while youre doing it. Clearly that was the case as the boss was quickly defeated.

Beastlord Darmac

This is the only fight that matters. This clearly looks like a good time. You get to dps a boss that rides all kinds of weird shit. It looks like you get to DPS adds as well. How could one not like this. Clearly it was so much fun the boss fell over with excitement, dead.

Our foray into Mythic BRF started off nicely. After banging our heads at #yolo for a while, decided to control things a bit more, and got a kill after an hour or two of ironing out kinks:

Got some loot, had some fun, learned a little about ourselves - what works and what doesn't work for us. All in all good times were had. Onto more.

We'd been making good progress on Heroic Blackhand the past few weeks, including a 4% wipe on a last pull that left us a bit heartbroken. We knew we were close, and after a few days of resting our weary bones, we went in Sunday and nabbed a controlled kill in relatively short order to finish off Heroic BRF once and for all:


Blackhand Kill Log

With a ton of time still left in the night before us, we decided to head back to Mythic Highmaul to settle some unfinished business. Before BRF laucnhed, we managed to get Brackenspore Mythic down to around 30% before shifting our focus to the new bosses with higher reward/time ratios. After a full pulls to reacquaint ourselves with the positoining and mechanics, we were able to last those few extra minutes we needed to see him die:

With still more time on the night, we decided to give Butcher a few pulls, fogiromg we probably well overegeared the Berserk by now. After some helpful tips from Cwrush regarding strategy and positioning, we realized pretty quickly that we weren't far off from a kill. A few minor adjustments and Java's epic 24k Ele DPS pushed us over the top, nabbing our 3rd progression kill of the night:


Butcher Kill Log

What a night! It had been quite a while since we had such a successful progression night, probably dating back years into Cata considering our absence in MOP. It felt really nice to have one of those nights where everyone was on point and focusing again, and having our efforts rewarded with tangible kills. Great job everyone; here's to more nights like that in the near future as we continue to get back into progression raiding form.
