Wednesday night, the guild cleared SW up to Felmyst, finally downing her in about six attempts. This left the Eredar Twins to our disposal. I was a big fan of the Twin Emps in AQ40, but it turns out this fight is nothing like them.

I read the strat (I swear I did), but instead of paying attention to the names of the twins, I only looked at their colors. I saw the Purple One up top and the Red One down at the bottom being DPSed upon, so I automatically assumed that it was the Red One that would be tanked by the melee tanks, and the Purple One tanked at range by the warlock. That's not the case, and when I was called out on for MDing the Red One to the MT (who also happens to be my fiance), I intially denied it. Then I noticed their names... I was asked if we had gotten into a fight or something, and if I was still angry at him. No, I'm just prodominantly a visual learner, and a noob to boot.

Turns out, even with the OP Buff, you still need a TON of healing to pull off this fight. We ended up calling it early so people could watch the strat and come back on Sunday to try again. I hate and love this fight already :)

Ah, lambs to the slaughter...

Although I'll say this: The Eredar Twins are hawt.

I'd lend my fire to the aid of their shadow. <_<

No no, it's one of their lines. When Sacrolash does Shadow Nova, she yells "Shadow to the aid of fire!" and Alythess yells "Fire to the aid of shadow!" when she conflagrates.

LOL I know!

When I first heard it, the tone of voice strongly reminded me of the theme song to Captain Planet.

They could have been chanting "Wind!" "Water!" "Heart!" it was so close.

I haven't heard them before :(

I'd hit it, though. ;D
