Onyxia!!! After running 25-man VOA and TOC last night, we had a few insomniacs decide to peek into Ony's Lair on 10-man and see what she might offer us.
I'm one of those raiders that joined Wow essentially after vanilla (was less than 60 when BC dropped) so I never raided Ony's Lair. I'd done it once with 10 80s which meant I'd seen her but ignored all the fight mechanics. Doing it last night was fun and now I can say I know what the fuss about DEEP BREATH was/is. I'm sure that at the time the mechanic was new and exciting. Now, though, there are any number of similar challenges on the bosses since. It's a bit like Felmyst's spray of insanity where you have to run to a certain side of the area to avoid it. On the other hand, it was indeed fun to have the yells of OMG north! North! NORTH!!! And the subsequent wipe or two before we figured out where to run, especially with the confusion of whelps all over. ;) Good stuff.
I tanked/OT'd it and found keeping all the adds off the healers challenging. It seemed a bit buggy in that a number of times 15 or so whelps would spawn ON the healers instead of coming down one or the other tunnel, one-shotting the clothies even if they were standing in my Death & Decay. The daily reset issue is still up the air at the moment as far as I know.
Overall, a fun fight and I'm not upset they resurrected this 'old content.'
p.s. no mount :P
