Seems we have 5 and need one more - preferably ranged DPS but a random?

Tank: Obi/Tara
Cappy: Aed/Tara
Minnie: Obi/Aed/Tara
LM: Baz/Vime
Ranged DPS: Aed/Vime/Obi

+ ?

Two fire runies should make the fight very fast indeed; hunters also good, I think...

I'll try to be on this evening.
Hopefully I'm not feeling too badly then (seem to be pretty OK at the minute, but that's just after medication).

DoS T2 cleared - but Normal Mode cos Goro died (AOE?)

We saw the elephant - we pwned the elephant.

Grats to the brave Rangers - Tara and Obi the ikkle hobbitses, Arc and Vime the runie death machines, Wunwun the raven jockey and yours truly the schmexy white cappeh in the hat :D

Thank you all for coming!
(Sorry Baz you couldn't be on... next time)

We did it quite well, indeed better than I expected. A bit long and messy due to our (at least mine) inexperience . But we completed T2 with only one wipe at the first boss and another on the second.
Thank you all for your good work.

Couple of (hopefully constructive) feedback points:

- One for me: cappies and LMs need to dismiss pets except in boss fights to avoid pulling anything unexpected. Pulling the wrong group of mobs (Blackguard Constrainer, Morgul Corrupter) can wipe the group.
- Tanking: Aggro came off Tara far too quickly, and we had lots of Haradrim in the elephant fight and spirits of the dark plague in the nazgul fight in the group. We all need to play our part helping the tank find adds, especially when said tank is tineh hobbit.
- Eye management: eye > all. When you have it, runnnn - and drop it somewhere safe.
- Poison removals: was using Muster Courage a LOT to get Haradrim archer acid dots off people.
- When Mazog and Achardor are dead, watch AOE on boss so Gorothul doesn't die... and we get meaningful lootses.
- Spam interrupts on the chicken, and make sure someone interrupts Gorothul.

Good things:

- Venom-arrow management - queuing up venom-arrows was well managed by the runies. You'll always get bad luck on eyes.
- Watching the ikkle hobbitses hunt the door-warden was funny.
- DPS was fine.
- Corruption removal was good once you got into a rhythm. The cue for it is "Let the darkness crush you" at which point the boss gets 3 corruptions. Any removal skill will only remove 1.
- General DPS positioning.

Possible tweaks:

For even moar deeeeps, I might bring burpydorf next time as a yellow/red traited minnie (instead of the LM - something like http://www.lotrottp.lotrostatus.com/l.php?c=3wx) and spam 3 Anthems of War (or 2 and Composure/Third Age) on people. The runies will have a DPS-gasm with that and a red cappy. I can also then add a source of interrupts and corruption removal as well as some light-based DPS (which won't be reflected) and an extra source of AOE heals, Triumphant Spirit and Fellowship's Heart by swapping to melody - better than a cappy, less than a full 2nd healer.

Any more of this going on tonight as well, or should I opt for many cups of tea and a few movies instead? :)
