Not too bad for a mostly first time group We did have 3 in the group that have done eLOB at least a few times previously, but the rest of us were new. We've been doing hard smoothly with little to no pot usage for the last few weeks or so and decided to up it to the next level. We learned a lot from experienced people's advice in those groups, personal experience, and reading strategy on the forums.
Mostly the same group did an attempt last weekend and had to 10-man short a healer and a caster when they DC'd before we started the final fight Made it to round 5 with only a couple of pillars left when our main kiter went down. Things went down from there
Lessons learned from that time: buff/wait for DC'd people on the platform not (non)shrine area and get the kiter 1 or 3 Phiarlan Shields when the light monks aren't spamming grasp on him
Anyway, it was super fun and we had an awesome group. I look forward to doing this raid on epic regularly
