So, raid testing for the first boss of SoO is over. What did you think? Personally I thought the fight overall was fun. I wouldn't say it was necessarily a good fight, but it was enjoyable. Also, probably one of the coolest boss rooms ever imo. The fight was pretty easy, but a couple things to note
1. Swirl moves pretty fast. Unless I was on the opposite side of it, or he faced me and I just ran to the right of the beam (the beam goes clockwise) I would get hit no matter what. Also, it seems to hit multiple times, because sometimes it'd bring me to 60-70% and others it would nearly one shot me.
2. The adds are ridiculously easy to deal with. I did the fight as survival and I just dropped and ice and snake trap where they spawned and entrapment would keep them rooted for the entire time allowing me to kill 3 really fast and then waiting around for the phase to end, since I was too far away from the other adds.
3. The fight is too long. Our kill took 9 minutes, granted we had a couple dps who weren't necessarily putting out incredible numbers, but I feel like the fight kinda drags towards the end. The dungeon journal made it sound like he would heal to full everytime but on the ptr he was healing to his current corruption level. I hope this is how the fight will be on live, because having him heal to full everytime would just be annoying.
