Ok, so i've been crunching some ulduar 10 hardmodes recently, finally received my proto drake since i've sat out many times to allow new members join and get their achieves, as well as take many new groups in my guild. So i have a few questions about algalon. I pretty much understand the fight mechanics and am curious if its easily beatable without a bloodlust. We downed firefighter tonight without a bloodlust and i think we only wiped 4 times or less, all being within the first or 2nd phases due to a few players not knowing the fight on hardmode.
I guess i will just link my 10 man members for this week and see if you guys think its doable.
If you are well geared I doubt a bloodlust is necessary ie. if you are all in 25 man ToC gear and above.
On our kill we had everyone in about 3-4 pieces of Toc10 normal/badge gear and the rest was ulduar 10 and with bloodlust we got him to the dark matter phase at the same time as 3rd big bang (which is ~90 secs before he kills everyone).
Sigh, since it was our first try at him, we wiped countlessly, never getting to a 2nd big bang, why, because i believe the people we had to kill the stars were killing the ones that were at full health after the first big bang, so we had multiple collapsing stars die at once, one shotting members. =(
