BAMN’s first foray into mythic proved that the big and indomitable Grue was no match for them. Not only did Jujubae int the raid by taking lUmBErInG FoRM to parse, but so did Barnacleboy…. maybe??? Hella sus… Led by Ginko and co., the drip was far too much for our good boy Grue to handle. RIP Grueboi. 😿
BAMN is making considerable progress – after defeating Kel’thuzad, they’re now 9/10H, a modest 1/10M (eyeball boss is a little 🤷), and server top 100. So what did BAMN do next? They got to work on heroic Sylvannas.
The Banshee Queen is a noticeable step up in difficulty compared to her normal counterpart. How so? Everything slaps much harder and the spell lag is real. What’s interesting to note is that her encounter mirrors the Lich King’s – we’re on top of Torghast much like how we fought Arthas on top of Icecrown Citadel. Geographically, Torgy and ICC are poised opposite of each other in that we can see Torgy from Icecrown and vice versa. Story wise, the fight is a major culminating moment much like Arthas’s was, too.
Without spoiling the end of the raid (I don’t know how you wouldn’t know by now), I’m curious to see where the story goes next! Sylvannas’s character has been an enigma for the past 2-3 (or mooore) years without any clear direction where it’s going. The player is left to piece together bits of narrative after major events which makes it difficult to follow and emotionally invest in. Hopefully, the new spin is one that sticks and that the narrative dev’s include the player in the thought processes of some of these major characters, instead of us having to guess it. Like… do we really know what Sylvannas is doing yet?
Also here is the parse log for the Grue, boom roasted you lumbering trolls. 👻
