So I managed to get in a couple of hours post-patch.
Random LFG System
Assessment: It rocks
While I had one instance that didn’t form (UK from the queue art) my next queue and group was awesome. The process took less than five minutes (with a partner) and the dungeon was a quick run through, including the <2 min achieve on the guy at the end of OK. Loved it.
Icecrown — Forge of Souls
Assessment: Fine tuned.
I, like many I’m sure, am at the point that you just riptide/renew/rejuv and move on. I actually had to HEAL! After spending an hour trying to get into instances, incapable of spawning, I got a group that was 1/2 into the dungeon. The final boss for the Forge is the Devourer of Souls, I multi-faced monstrosity that will eat your party alive. Not only does he/she/it summon a horde of lost souls from time to time, but can reflect dps onto a random party member, or do a rotating beam of icky.
I experienced the boss as a one-shot, but I did have to reincarnate due to bad positioning on the rotating beam of icky. And I think the mage spent the last part of the fight in an iceblock. However, I was happy with the work I was having to produce — riptides, chain heals, lesser AND healing waves — fun stuff!
I hope your first day of the patch was as fun as mine 🙂 While there were some aggravations, I was thrilled with my dungeons, and am looking forward to more!
